Last week, in part one of my
interview with Rachel Boston, we
discussed her trip back to high
school – via Lifetime’s original
movie “Holiday High School
Reunion.” In “Holiday,” Rachel
starred with such industry vets as
Marilu Henner and Harry Hamlin.
But Rachel is no stranger to working
with Hollywood heavy-hitters.
Right now she is shooting a pilot
for Lifetime called “Witches of East
End,” with Julia Ormond (“Legends
of the Fall,” “Sabrina” and “The
Curious Case of Benjamin Button”)
and Jenna Dewan-Tatum (“Step
Up” “American Horror Story” and
wife of People’s Sexiest Man Alive,
When I interviewed Rachel
recently, she told me all about her
exciting new project, which will
hopefully have a long life on
Lifetime. Rachel can’t wait for
viewers to see her latest project,
which is due to premiere next year.
Daytime Dial: You are working
with Lifetime again, shooting a
pilot called “Witches of East End.
This intrigues me, as I’ve always
been a huge fan of supernatural storytelling.
What can you tell me
Rachel Boston: I am working
with such an amazing group of
women! Julia Ormond plays my
mom, and Jenna Dewan plays my
sister. As the story goes, when we
were born, our mom cast a spell so
we wouldn’t actually know we are
witches, but we can sense that we
are different. Through a chain of
events, we discover who we are and
how we can help protect each other
and our town. Maggie Friedman
wrote the script and is such an
amazing voice for women. It’s also
a story about intuition, trust and
love, and I pray we get to tell this
story for years to come.
DD: Tell me a bit about your
RB: I play Ingrid Beauchamp,
and I live with my mom and sister
in the small town of Fair Haven.
Ingrid is a delightful soul but very
insecure about certain areas of her
life. She works at the library and
has been hiding in her books, but
she is about to have to step into her
power and become the woman she
is destined to be.
DD: You’re shooting in
Wilmington, N.C. (whose big
Hollywood claim to fame is as the
location for filming “Dawson’s
Creek”), which is gorgeous, especially
this time of year. How has the
shoot been so far?
RB: I love Wilmington! The people
are so kind, and the beaches are
gorgeous. We have a wonderful
DD: If the show gets picked up,
do you know when it will begin airing?
RB: Summer 2013!
