This weekend, Sherry Stringfield, the actress who portrayed Blake Bauer's crazy youth on GUIDING LIGHT, returns to television in a much more maternal role. She's starring in the Hallmark Channel Original, _ Beverly Lewis' The Confession_ as the terminally ill birth mother of a young Amish woman (SWITCHED AT BIRTH's Katie Leclerc) who wants desperately to be reunited. "It's a sequel to Beverly Lewis' The Shunning, and both stories are based on these insanely popular books," Stringfield explains. "It's something that you don't see a lot: a young woman's story of innocence, growing up, and learning about the world. I thought it was beautifully told."
Executive produced and directed by Michael Landon Jr. (the half-brother of Jennifer Landon, ex-Heather, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS; Gwen, AS THE WORLD TURNS), the intriguing tale delves deep into relationships, but it's definitely not all hearts and flowers. "My character [a wealthy socialite] has a husband, and they're going through some things he's been a total dirt bag," she previews. "As it's turns out, he's tricking her and it's really interesting." For more about the film, which premieres on Saturday, May 11, at 9 p.m. EST, and to hear about what else the popular actress has been up to, check out her Keeping Track feature in the next issue of Soaps In Depth.
