Brenda Strong is no different....she's been in the business for decades and all she's ever won are bit roles where she comes across as prissy and cold. Her most notorious role is on DH where instead of winning the Terri Hatcher role or another major part due to her screen presence...she won the role of a woman who provides snobby sounding commentary with perfect grammatical delivery and who is heard and rarely ever shown. Yes, the role of Ann could be her sudden break-out role....but I'm perfectly capable of being objective and in every screen cap and promo pic I've seen....Ann seems cold and prissy. The closest one that had any warmth to it is the one used at the top of this forum...and that photo is so computer enhanced it's unnatural and cartoonish.
That's how I see this Dallas 2.0...don't hold everything back, planning on a third season and beyond...because in today's TV market, the 3rd season and beyond may never come because of a tragic actor death or viewers tuned out cause the show doesn't have their favourite characters and it's nothing but recycled storylines and appeasement producer decisions to make the current cast happy.
