Shiri about “Emergency Room” & “Unstable”

Bend Weekly published a mixed news entry on April 14, 2009 about the Jonas Brothers, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore as well as Shiri Appleby.

Shiri talks “Emergency Room” and the Lifetime movie “Unstable”:

THE VIDEOLAND VIEW: Shiri Appleby didn’t join the cast of “ER” until the final season, but she tells us being a part of the series’ historic TV legacy will remain one of her career highlights. “I was actually in the pilot when I was 14, so to be in the very first episode and then join the cast in the last season, it felt like being a part of showbiz history,” says Appleby, who admits many of the cast and crew were not ready for the show to end. “People weren’t wanting to deal with the fact that it was the end, because of lot of the crew had been there like 13 years. But I think everyone was just grateful to be a part of something that meant so much and had such a long run.”

Appleby certainly wasted no time finding other work as she recently wrapped the CW pilot “Light Years.” She’s also starring alongside Kathy Baker in the Lifetime movie “Unstable” airing Saturday (4/25).

“The character goes on a crazy journey, so I thought it would be a chance to stretch and try things that I wouldn’t normally have the opportunity to do,” she says of a playing a wealthy young woman, who after recovering from a nervous breakdown, falls in love with a man she believes to be Mr. Right. However, she soon starts to question whether he is trying to push her to the brink of insanity in order to get her inheritance. “Obviously it’s a movie you should have a good time watching because it’s fun and far out there. The character ends up really trusting herself when everyone else isn’t sure of her, and she ends up saving her own life. It just goes to show it’s important we all follow our own intuition.”
