Jean Smart Glad Her Portrayal of Camilla is Positive

Jean Smart, who’s joining the cast of Kathy Bates’ “Harry’s Law” in the recurring role of a prosecutor — she’ll be seen in the first three episodes of the new season — says she’s also considering taking on a play this fall. 

“It’s not a comedy,” she tells us, though she doesn’t want to go into detail as yet.  She adds, “It’s good to get the chance to flex your stage muscles, and it’s been so long since I did a play.” 

Smart flexed her acting muscles in a whole different way as Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, in tonight’s (8/27) Hallmark Channel Original Movie, “William & Catherine: a Royal Romance.”  She’s glad the charming movie presents a more positive, warm and fun image of Camilla than has historically been the case in the media.  “I think people are coming around to her,” she says.   

Well, at least Jean’s version.
