'Dallas' Actress Linda Gray Will Guest Star on Michael Caruso's Upcoming Must-See Drama 'Winterthorne'

Linda Gray will guest star in Winterthorne, the upcoming drama from Michael Caruso.
Hosts Martha Madison and Lilly Melgar made a major web series casting announcement on today's episode of Soap Box Radio. Madison, who is set to star as Miranda Winthorne in Michael Caruso's upcoming drama, Winterthorne, revealed that longtime Dallas actress Linda Gray was joining her as a guest star in the series. Gray will play Miranda's mother, Joanna.

Gray is best known for her memorable portrayal of Sue Ellen Ewing on CBS' original Dallas series and the reboot on TNT, which was canceled last fall after three seasons.

“I have so many special memories of watching Dallas with my own mother, having Linda play my mother now feels like a full circle moment,” says Madison, “It’s incredibly special. I’m ecstatic.”

Gray has appeared on stage in England in the original stage production of "Terms of Endearment," based on the screenplay of the Oscar winning motion picture and also starred in the West End production of "The Graduate," playing to sold-out audiences, going on to replace Kathleen Turner on Broadway for a limited engagement. Her TV credits include Melrose Place and Models, Inc., as well as numerous movies of the week and feature films, and further stage work in "The Vagina Monologues," "Agnes of God" and "Love Letters."’ Most recently, Gray was seen in the British stage production of the 2014 Christmas pantomime, "Cinderella," playing the Fairy Godmother. She begins filming the indie feature, Wally, this month.

“Working with Linda Gray is a dream come true for me,” adds Caruso, “I have been an enormous fan of her work for many years. I think she’s going to be brilliant in the role.”

When Winterthorne was first announced in November, Caruso described the character of Miranda as "powerful, seductive, vulnerable, loving, and ruthless." The cast includes Gordon Thomson (Dynasty, DeVanity, Santa Barbara) as Miranda's father, Maxmillian, and Josh Thrower (90210, The Young and the Restless) as Colin.

Caruso's DeVanity recently received eight Indie Series Awards nominations and was nominated for a Daytime Emmy last year.

Today's Soap Box Radio episode (on the air LIVE until 6 p.m. ET) featured special guest Eric Martsolf (Days of our Lives), who will be hosting the ISAs on April 1st.

Winterthorne begins production for three weeks in late March, both in and outside of
the Los Angeles area, and is expected to premiere this summer.
