GH’s Kathleen Gati Joins LADIES OF THE LAKE

Kathleen Gati (Dr. Obrecht, GH) is joining the season 2 cast of LADIES OF THE LAKE, playing Margaret Cranston, the mother of Crystal Amhurst (Jessica Morris). Gati will appear in three of the four episodes in the second season, which begins filming late January. “I watched the first season of LADIES OF THE LAKE and thought it was a fantastic series!” enthused Gati in a statement. “And the last time I worked with Michael Caruso [executive producer/writer], on another fun project of his, WINTERTHORNE, the material was so incredible, I was nominated for an Emmy! I trust Michael and his enormous talent explicitly and can’t wait to be a part of his second season of LADIES OF THE LAKE!” Caruso added, “Margaret Cranston was a character from the original novel I had to remove to streamline the story, but the second season provides the perfect opportunity to bring her into the fold, and I can’t think of a better actress than Kathleen to bring her to life. When I began writing, I knew immediately that I had to have Kathleen’s extraordinary talent involved in the show. Kathleen’s fans can expect lots of fun zingers and a bold look that matches Margaret’s larger than life personality.”
