AS previously reported at SciFiAndTvTalk, actress Ellen Dubin (Lexx, The Collector) can be seen as Dora in the Hallmark made-for-TV movie When Love Is Not Enough: The Lois Wilson Story on Canada's W Network on Tuesday, May 4th @ 10:00 p.m. EST/PST with a repeat airing on Wednesday, May 5th @ 9:00 a.m. EST/PST and again at 2:oo p.m. EST/PST.
The Lois Wilson Story recent aired in the States on CBS, and afterwards Ellen received numerous e-mails about the film as well as her performance. Here is an edited version of one note from a fellow actor:
"Ellen...I just finished watching the DVR. My eyes are still teary. I've been sober for 29 years and watching this unfold gave me the most profound sense of gratitude. Not just for the life I have now, which would have been impossible without AA, but for the work of Bill and Lois which, I believe, was divinely inspired. In the entire history of the world, AA and Al-Anon have restored more lives and families than all other forms of counseling/therapy COMBINED. I've been to Bill and Lois' home in Bedford Hills...I've been to the hotel in Washington where Bill made the most important decision of his (and my) life - to go into the bar, or into that phone booth to call the church and ask for the number of another drunk (Dr. Bob...). Dammit, I'm starting to cry again. Just be proud you were a part of the telling of this story. It was...and you were...magnificent!"
Make sure to tune in this coming Tuesday!
