On Location at Crystal Chappell's Venice


Michael Fairman went on location for the filming of Venice, Crystal Chappell's highly-anticipated web series, to get some scoops and previews for Advocate.com. During the visit he chatted with Chappell, co-star Jessica Leccia, writer-producer Kim Turrisi, Nadia Bjorlin and Gina Tognoni. Leccia shared the following.


Jessica Leccia (Chapell’s former love interest on GL) told me the character she plays in Venice, Ani, is far removed from her days in Springfield on the canceled CBS soap.

“Everything is pretty much different with Ani. They are night and day. Ani is way more with it than Natalia. She has a career and is goal-oriented and is on the pulse of everything. She is really busy and human and in love ... and all the things that come with that. She is way savvier than Natalia. Ani is going to be a force to be reckoned with and is more of a go-getter to get what she wants. Gina may be what she wants, and that is her big dilemma in this whole thing ... loving somebody and not having it the way she would like it to be.”
