|Megan Hilty in Toronto - May 2012|
There was no other Star I was more excited to see arrive at the CTV Upfronts than Megan Hilty, the beautiful Broadway Actress-turned-TV Star known best for her work on Smash. Just one year after Debra Messing came to announce that the NBC Series would be added to CTV's Lineup, we get to meet the incredibly-talented Actress who plays Ivy on the Musical Drama Series.
Hilty is every bit as delightful in-person, winning tons of praise from Fans who got to meet her yesterday, spreading a bit of that infectious personality. She got a good chuckle when I told her, "Girl, you've gotta go back and get your revenge next Season! That ain't right!", commenting on the recent conclusion of the Series' first Season which saw her defeated after we saw Katharine McPhee's Karen stealing her thunder in landing the coveted Role of Marilyn Monroe.
One bit of Trivia though - this wasn't New York-based Hilty's first visit to the City, as previously she starred in a run of Wicked here.
Smash won't be a part of the Fall Lineup on CTV, however a second Season was just green-lit and Fans cannot wait!
Hilty was sweet enough to sign a Photo for my Readers. Click "like" on this Post at Mr. Will-W.:Pop Maven on Facebook before July 1, 2012. You should be following on Twitter too. Good luck!
