Nicollette Sheridan To Be Front And Center On "Desperate Housewives"
"Desperate Housewives" creator Marc Cherry revealed on Sunday's TCA Winter Press Tour session that in the wake of Marcia Cross' absence from several episodes of ABC's Sunday night dramedy, actress Nicollette Sheridan who plays vixen Edie Britt will become front and center of the show for the remainder of the season.
ABC President Steve McPherson confirmed the 44-year old actress was put on bed rest last week, which was a little earlier than the network had originally anticipated. For this reason, ABC is very happy that Cross agreed to shoot the remaining scenes for her arc at her home, in her bed.
McPherson said Cross will be seen in the next 3 episodes on January 21, February 11 and February 18 when Kyle McLachlan's character Orson Hodge will finally reveal his family's sinister past. ABC will air a rerun on January 28 and pre-empt the show on February 4 and 25.
Marcia Cross who is supposed to give birth to twins in April may be back for the season finale in May which is normally filmed in early April, but Cross' scenes could be done at a later point to accommodate the actress. This would of course depend on whether Marcia will be ready to work so soon.
In the meantime, Nicolette Sheridan will become front and center of the show and Marc Cherry revealed that we will finally see her son that the deceased character Martha Huber referred to in the show's pilot. Also, Edie will have a fascinating romance with someone already living on Wisteria Lane. Do you think what I think?
