Star: BETH TOUSSAINT
Role: Veronica Koslowsky, SAVANNAH
Birthday: September 25
Lives With: Husband of 7 weeks, Jack Coleman (ex-Steven Carrington, DYNASTY; ex-Jake Kositchek, DAYS)
Home Is: Los Angeles, Martha's Vineyard, and Atlanta
A ``NIGHTMARE'' LOVE STORY
``I'm a total Libra,'' sighs SAVANNAH scamp Beth Toussaint. ``I
drive people crazy. I have such a hard time making decisions.'' But
her real-life wedding went off without a hitch.
DIGEST ONLINE: How does it feel to be a newlywed?
Toussaint: ``It feels great. It's the best thing in the world.
People always say, `Oh, it won't feel any different, but it feels
DIGEST ONLINE: Right now, you and Jack have a rather unusual
living arrangement, don't you?
Toussaint: ``We don't really live together [on a day-to-day basis]
because I live in Atlanta [while SAVANNAH is filming] and he lives
in Los Angeles and Martha's Vineyard. I commute back and forth to
L.A. and the Vineyard, wherever Jack is, as much as possible.''
DIGEST ONLINE: How did you two meet?
Toussaint: ``We met on a Wes Craven TV series called NIGHTMARE
CAFE. I came in on the last episode to play Jack's love interest.
He's the first man that I ever met working with, so I decided to
marry him [laughs].''
DIGEST ONLINE: Tell us about the wedding...
Toussaint: ``The wedding was June 21. It was the first day of
summer, which is Jack's favorite day of the year, so he picked
the date, and we got married on Cape Cod. The ceremony started at
one o'clock in the afternoon, and the party ended at 4 a.m. At
about midnight, we all took a break from dancing, hiked up our
wedding dresses and tuxedos, and waded into the ocean.''
DIGEST ONLINE: Was it a big wedding?
Toussaint: ``We had about 120 guests. No castmates were there.
We really wanted it to be an intimate wedding. It wasn't a
religious ceremony. We said our own vows. It was really a ritual
about our relationship, and what the commitment meant to us. We
just wanted the people closest to us there, the people who've
supported us in our lives, and in our love. You know, the
relationship was rocky for a long time. For the first few years,
we were just trying to get away from each other; then, finally,
we realized that instead we would just spend our lives together.
So we didn't want our wedding to be a Hollywood occasion.''
DIGEST ONLINE: On SAVANNAH, Veronica's storyline has intertwined
with Edward Burton's. What is it like working with Ray Wise, who
plays Edward? Toussaint: ``I love Ray. He's just the greatest to
work with. Ray has really become a friend, and we spend a lot of
time together. On the set, he's an absolute dream. Besides being
a wonderful actor, he's smart, and has a great sense of humor. We
literally just laugh all day when have scenes together. It's kind
of like going to Club Med when I go to work with Ray.''
DIGEST ONLINE: What's it like working with Paul Satterfield, who
plays Veronica's fellow scam artist, Tom Massick?
Toussaint: ``Paul's more serious [than Ray]. He's great to work
with, too, but as far as chemistry goes, Ray and I just have a
DIGEST ONLINE: What was your SAVANNAH audition like?
Toussaint: ``I auditioned the day the verdict was announced in the
O.J. Simpson trial, and a very close friend of mine, Ron Shipp,
who was at our wedding, [had been] pretty prominent [during] the
trial. He was the black cop who testified against O.J. He was O.J.
and Nicole's domestic violence counselor, and he was a friend of
O.J.'s for 15 years. He broke down on the [witness stand] and
basically said, `Tell the truth, O.J., this is sad.' And he was
kind of blacklisted [by O.J. supporters] after that. I would be at
games with him, and people would just curse him out, threaten
his family. Anyhow, I went through the whole thing with Ron. I
was so distraught over the verdict. I was devastated and crying
the day the verdict came out --meanwhile, I had to go to this
audition [for SAVANNAH], and I hadn't even looked at the script. I
figured I had all day to do it; it was only three pages of
dialogue. I was so distraught that [I couldn't concentrate]. I
studied [my lines] on my way over in the car, but I'd worked with
Aaron Spelling before, so [it worked out]. After that, they
offered the role to me, I didn't have to test or anything.''
DIGEST ONLINE: Does your husband, Jack Coleman, have a project
coming up soon?
Toussaint: ``He's going to do a movie for Showtime in the next
few weeks. He took the last several months off to go back east
with me and plan the wedding. The two of us planned our whole
wedding and arranged for 120 people to stay on Cape Cod. We
literally picked out every bed and breakfast and decided where
every person should stay -- it was quite an event. He just got
back to LA a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, he needs to be in LA,
while I'm in Atlanta, because there's really nothing for him to
do there [work-wise]. He basically quit DYNASTY because he really
wanted to do stage. He also turned down [the lead] in THE FLASH.
[fyi: The role went to John Wesley Shipp.] Jack was just going
through a time in his life where he said, `I want to do Broadway,'
and he did. He loved DYNASTY. Then, he just felt that he needed
to venture off and try other things for a while. But he's definitely
anxious to get back into television on a regular basis.''
DIGEST ONLINE: You must be clocking a lot of frequent flyer miles
Toussaint: ``I've been to the Vineyard twice since [SAVANNAH went
back into production]. Actually, I fly out on the red-eye a lot,
just to be wherever Jack is. I expect to get home once every two
weeks, whichever home it might be.... Ultimately, I guess, home is
where Jack is.''
