Many people find my blog when searching for April Bowlby. I thought I’d find some information and pass it along to her fans.
April Bowlby stars as Stacy Barrett on Lifetime’s “Drop Dead Diva.”
April Bowlby studied ballet and French in college before deciding to pursue a career in acting. Within weeks of her first Hollywood audition, April Bowlby landed the recurring role of Kandi, Alan’s ditzy girlfriend, on the hit CBS comedy series “Two and a Half Men.”
April Bowlby has also appeared on the CBS series “How I Met Your Mother,” “CSI: NY” and “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.” Some of April Bowlby’s additional acting credits include roles on the FOX comedy “Stacked,” the ABC series “Freddie” and the television movie “Sands of Oblivion.”
On the big screen, April Bowlby was featured in “All Roads Lead Home” and will soon be seen opposite Michael Clarke Duncan in “The Slammin’ Salmon.”
“Drop Dead Diva” is a new show on Lifetime. Brooke Elliott is wonderful playing a “skinny, shallow model in a fat, smart woman’s body.” The writing is fun and the stories are entertaining. If I watch it and don’t get online to try and “discuss” it, I’m fine. However, I just came from imdb where I found comments such as:
She’s absolutely obese-looking.
She is fat. And that is okay. In no way is she a size 16. She is closer to a 24.
I agree, I have nothing against people who are heavier, but I would like to see the plot take a twist for the better. I think that personality wise, Jane is great, but of course, realistically her weight could be seen as unhealthy especially if she continued to eat the way she does i.e. donuts, high calorie foods….
