  • Should stick with the stage.

    Ann Risley is very nice person who I have had the personal pleasure (and sometimes displeasure) of meeting and working with on more then one occasion. However, if you have seen Ann's work then you will understand and might even agree that she lacks thats pecial something for Television and especially when it comes to Comedy. Ann always brings her ego on the set with her and she delivers her line in such a serious dramatic way that her character can not be taken seriously.

    If anything, Ann does not belong on Television (and especially doing comedy) but rather on the stage doing dramatic roles as this is where talent lies.moreless
