Watch Beth Chamberlin in Law & Order: SVU’s “Spiraling Down”


It’s been a long time since I’ve watched Law & Order: SVU, but this week I’m going to make an exception. Not only will I get to see All My Children alum Kelli Giddish and guest star Treat Williams (anyone else still miss Everwood), but more importantly, former Guiding Light star Beth Chamberlin appears in the December 7 episode. I've been looking forward to seeing her in this episode since her appearance was announced in November. 

Chamberlin portrays Georgia Stanton, a wife who must deal with the after affects of her husband Jake Stanton (Treat Williams) football injuries and an investigation by the Special Victims Unit when he is busted in an underage hooker sting operation. Watch the promo for the must-see episode “Spiraling Down” after the jump!

Beth Chamberlin: CELL’s “Season Two Will Explode”


We Love Soaps’ Damon L. Jacobs caught up with former Guiding Light star and CELL season finale shocker Beth Chamberlin to talk about life one year after GL ended and how she will impact CELL’s second season.
We Love Soaps: We have learned this year that with every ending there are new beginnings. And we have seen many new beginnings in your career this year. We loved your work in STEAMBOAT. Please tell us about your work in the CELL.

Beth Chamberlin: CELL was so much fun. What a top notch group of people to work with. When someone I really respect said to take a look at this, I thought, eh, I don’t know. But I looked at one episode of CELL and said, “This is really good!” I had to leave, and my husband watched all the episodes that have been up at that point, and he also said, “That is really good.” So we decided that I would do it. It was actually shooting the weekend of his birthday, so that was a big deal. Mark Gardner, who is the writer, director, producer, is a real perfectionist. He actually rescheduled the shoot for me. Because the original shoot was supposed to be the weekend of the Emmys which I couldn’t do. So he rescheduled it, but that put him in the position of having to edit the show in ten days. It really put him in a tough position. Yet it is so well done. And I have read his backstory. Before he even wrote one word he wrote this very detailed backstory. Everything you are seeing has meaning. He has dropped bread crumbs, but season two will explode.

Beth Chamberlin Joins CELL: The Web Series


Former Guiding Light star Beth Chamberlin has joined the cast of CELL: The Web Series for its second season, according to Indie Intertube.
When asked about the new addition to his already stellar cast Mark Gardner had this to say, “We’re very excited to have Beth join the cast of CELL: The Web Series. CELL has worked hard to deliver excellent character based drama and an actor of Beth’s caliber will help us push to the next level in creating high-quality independent drama. We hope with the inclusion of Beth Chamberlin in CELL that we can not only increase interest in what we’re doing but also increase exposure and interest in independent drama all over the web to a new group of fans.”

Requiem for a Daytime Drama, Part Three


The third in a highly personal, non-objective series highlighting various aspects of the last episodes of Guiding Light, which will end its 72 year run on September 18th.

The third from the last episode of Guiding Light was all about reactions and coming to grips with the demise of Alan Spaulding, mirroring the mixed emotions of the show's fans as the series takes its final bows.

As news of Alan Spaulding's (Ron Raines) death rippled through town, we were treated to one of the most honest portrayals of how people react in such circumstances as has ever been seen on daytime. Over the last 30 years, Alan had committed any number of heinous crimes against most of the citizens of Springfield and yet his passing left many stunned (Ashlee, Blake, Reva, Jonathan, Frank), some confused (grandson Rafe), and others shocked & saddened (Lillian, Buzz).

When all is said and done, today's episode was rocked by Grant Aleksander (Phillip), Zack Conroy (James), and Marj Dusay (Alexandra).
