While loony Lisa was the last person anyone wanted to see in Port Charles, her talented portrayer, Brianna Brown, is wanted everywhere! Her recurring role last fall as an undercover prostitute for a Saudi prince on the Showtime hit drama HOMELAND has put her on the radar. “I have been working a boatload [since October] — literally non-stop — and receiving straight offers,” she tells Soaps In Depth.
Last month, she appeared as a love interest for Taye Diggs on PRIVATE PRACTICE. “Then I shot USA’s new show COMMON LAW, and CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION, working opposite Ted Danson,” she confides of the episode airing Wednesday, February 8, at 10 p.m. ET on CBS. (ALL MY CHILDREN’s Jill Larson (Opal) also appears in the episode.)
Look for Brown to appear in an episode of HBO’s hit vampire drama TRUE BLOOD when its next season kicks off this summer, as well as NBC’s upcoming drama AWAKE. “[It] is produced by Howard Gordon [one of the creators of HOMELAND]… It’s a very big guest star, and who knows what will transpire,” Brown says with a grin. “I’m having a blast working opposite [series stars] Jason Isaacs and Steve Harris.”
