Linda Gray on filming ‘Expecting Mary’

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: Linda Gray tells us she had a blast making the big-screen “Expecting Mary,” which has an anticipated fall release. The indie film has a pregnant teen – Oleysa Rulin of “High School Musical” fame – running away and winding up in a trailer park, the denizens of which are a colorful assortment of crazies in their AARP years. Linda Stars with Elliott Gould, Lanie Kazan, Cybill Shepherd, Cloris Leachman, Della Reese, Fred Willard and Gene Simmons.

“We shot it in 18 days. Because everybody loved their role, we all came together quickly. It was like going to party you can’t wait to go to,” says the actress who reigned over the TV scene as Sue Ellen Ewing on “Dallas” back in the 80s. Gray plays a former Vegas showgirl “whose last gig was in New Mexico. She’s funny and pathetic – and still can be glamorous.”

Linda was also instrumental in getting “Expecting Mary” made. She’d gotten to know screenwriter Dan Gordon when “we both bought the rights to ‘Terms of Endearment’ as a play, which I did in London about eight years ago. During that time we talked about what fun it would be to come up with something more comedic than Sue Ellen or Aurora, the part I played in ‘Terms,’ and we started throwing out ideas.”
