Being Erica star Erin Karpluk is doing double duty this winter, shooting a supporting role on new series Life Unexpected while Erica airs in America.
The 31-year-old actress talked about her new role at last week's television press tour. "I was very nervous to start Life Unexpected, because someone else is driving the ship and I don't want to screw it up. You're there to support the other actors on the show and it's nerve-wracking jumping onto a show where the cast and crew know each other and are already in motion and you're the new person."
Of course, it all worked out. Erin told reporters, "Everybody was very welcoming, the cast was fantastic to work with, and the writers are great. Plus, it's kind of nice not to work every day. I can have a life outside, get my taxes done, go to the gym, and go on a date." Erin plays a radio station manager on the series, bossing around engaged coworkers Kate (Shiri Appleby) and Ryan (Kerr Smith).
Sounds like a nice change of pace, after dealing with Erica's picky boss Julianne!
