The character Elizabeth is not for an actress who is of faint of heart when it comes to digging deep and facing her own shadow. Elizabeth is a soul, who incarnated too quickly. In doing so, she brought the anger, betrayal, and need for revenge that she felt in her previous life back with her. Although she doesn't consciously remember the past, it has been poisoning her present life.
Arriving in Coyote Springs, the old memories and emotions overwhelm her as people and places seem familiar, bringing with them the rage that was spawned by the betrayal.
The 40 something actress portraying the character of Lynne in the paranormal thriller Never Can Say Good-bye needs to walk a fine line of conscious knowledge and subconscious motivation. Lynne's soul also reincarnated very quickly. But unlike the others, she returned out of love and the need to help others heal. Although she has no conscious memories of the past life, it has influenced her relationships and led her to be a motivating force in the karmic balancing. Those she loved before were in torment, because of the lies they believed when they died. By gently guiding Elizabeth and Michael to forgiveness as well as supporting Amanda's healing process, she sets some of the wrongs back to right.
