Maree Cheatham (ex-Charlene, GENERAL HOSPITAL; ex-Marie, DAYS OF OUR LIVES) is taking her Southern charm to Showtime’s DEXTER in order to play a docent on Halloween weekend. But will the serial killer take a shine to her as well? “He refers to my character as the ‘worst docent ever.'” Cheatham laughs of her university teacher alter ego. “I played the scene with considerable attitude.”
As for the rest of the episode, titled “Angel Of Death,” even the actress is in the dark. “I’m not allowed to say more about the episode, and to guarantee that I don’t, I wasn’t even given a full script. [It’s] very hush, hush.” Tune in Sunday, October 30, at 9 p.m. EST.
Next, keep your eyes peeled for ABC’s mid-season primetime soap, GCB (formerly titled GOOD CHRISTIAN BELLES), where Cheatham will appear alongside Greg Vaughan (ex-Lucky, GH), in a possible recurring role. “I play Boofie Marferson, Annie Potts’ best friend,” Cheatham previews. “I’ve done one episode and they called for another.” The series is based on Kim Gatlin’s novel, Good Christian Bitches.
