Audrey Landers (on Dallas, "Afton Cooper", A Chorus Line, & Ryan Murphy)

Ep. 329
Audrey Landers steps Behind The Rope. Yes, that Audrey Landers.Afton Cooper from the iconic, mega hit, fourteen year long run TV show, Dallas.After a brief chat about how Audrey ended up in LA to pursue her career in acting, we chat about how she got her role on Dallas.She chats about her early days on the hit TV show, who she felt most and least welcome by, and the challenges of coming into an already mega hit TV show with a cast that was tight.Speaking of a cast that was tight, mostly, Audrey opens up about all of her cast mates including, but not limited to, Larry Hagman, Linda Gray, Patrick Duffy, and Charlene Tilton.She also chats about Victoria Principal who notoriously was considered “an outsider” by the others and dissects the truth behind that rumor.Audrey chats about what she loved most, and least, about playing Afton Cooper and which storylines she thinks went too far.We discuss the rich storytelling of Dallas, how it was truly the leader that changed the game in the nighttime soap genre, how it invented the cliffhanger, and how Eighty Three Million People who watched, and asked all summer, “Who Shot J.R?” will never be recreated again.After four short seasons (yes, it wasn’t enough) playing Afton, Audrey left Dallas for a role in the hit movie “A Chorus Line”, where she got to show off her singing and dancing.That’s correct, Audrey has had an illustrious singing career. Flash forward and Audrey returned to Dallas to reprise her role as Afton in the original and then again in 2012 in the reboot of Dallas.We chat about what it’s like to play such an iconic role for so long, getting typecast in Hollywood, how far Hollywood has come, or not come, in offering interesting roles for women over forty, how far they still have to go, and the “me-too” movement and its affect on the industry.Of course, there is also her recent audition for Mr. Ryan Murphy!@audreylandersofficial@behindvelvetrope@davidyontefBonus Episodes Available at - to you by APPLE LEISURE GROUP - ($75 Off Your Stay at Live Aqua in Cancun or Punta Cana - Enter Promo Code “SAND75”)Brought to you by CHOPSAVER - (15% Off - Use Code “Velvet”)Merch Available at -
