Michelle Stafford spent about a minute with Sarah Michelle Gellar onscreen in Episode 3 of RINGER. Her character’s name is Peggy Lewis. Peggy has two children, Wally (whose age we don’t know) and Becca (who is in the eighth grade). Her husband’s name is Jack and he works for Deltona and Avercamp. Peggy ran into Shivette (Bridget being Siobhan) in the elevator of the building housing the law firm of Pierce, Zimmerman, & McDonald. Peggy had been shopping at FAO Schwarz. She is utterly amazed that Siobhan suggested they get together for lunch.
Stafford accurately described her character to TV Guide as “really nosy and very much in your face — one of those me, me, me types who talks a mile a minute”.
I really want to see more of this character. There is no indication yet if she is going to be a regular on the show. Stafford’s first TV role was in a soap opera aimed at teens that lasted only 6 episodes on FOX in 1990. It was called TRIBES, and it was apparently sort of a precursor to SWANS CROSSING, which starred Sarah Michelle Gellar and aired some two years later. Episodes 1 through 4 of TRIBES are available on YouTube.
