Lauralee Bell of Y&R to star in two Lifetime movies

Bell is known for her acting work on the hit CBS soap opera The Young and the Restless, which was renewed for four more seasons, through 2024. She plays the role of Christine “Cricket” Williams, the district attorney of Genoa City.

For her portrayal of Christine “Cricket” Williams, she received a Daytime Emmy nomination for “Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series” back in 2016.

The actress is set to star in the first two films, Ruby and Pearl in the Mist, alongside such actors as Rachelle Banno and Karina Banno.

In these two Lifetime films, Bell will play the role of Daphne Dumas, the wife of Ruby’s estranged father who is not very thrilled when Ruby arrives and disrupts their ideal family.

“I read the scripts and I was hooked,” Bell remarked in a press statement. She added that this is such a “wonderful introduction” for anybody that hasn’t read the books. “I am looking forward to portraying such a manipulative character,” she expressed.

This Lifetime movie series is produced by Reel One Entertainment. Tom Berry, Dan Angel, Jane Startz, and Ric Nash all serve as the executive producers. The screenwriters are Richard Blaney and Gregory Small with Gail Harvey as the director.

Bell is reunited with Reel One Entertainment after starring as their lead in their LMN films, Nightmare Tenant in back 2019; moreover, Bell also starred in Lifetime’s Past Sins.

In addition, Bell wrote, directed and produced the Emmy award-winning digital series, mI promise, which follows a 16-year old girl that makes a critical error by texting and driving.
