Fan Favorite Molly Ringwald Set to Guest Star on NBC's "Medium"

[via press release from NBC]


BURBANK, Calif -- April 11, 2006 -- Actress Molly Ringwald will make her first television appearance in four years as a guest-star on NBC's supernatural drama "Medium," episode "The Darkness is Light Enough" (Monday, May 1st at 10 PM ET/PT).

"I've been a fan of both Glenn's and Patricia's work for a long time," said Ringwald. "I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with them as well as the entire cast of 'Medium.'"

"I can't tell you how excited we are to have Molly Ringwald join us for this episode," said the show's creator and executive producer, Glenn Gordon Caron. "She is someone whose work I've long admired and I was thrilled when she agreed to do it. We don't often reach out to 'special guest stars' on 'Medium'...but as anyone who watches the episode will come to understand, this is just a perfect marriage of actor and material."

In this episode, full of suspense and unexpected twists and turns, Allison (Emmy(r)-winner Patricia Arquette) has visions of a faceless man who repeatedly breaks into the home of Ringwald's character, Kathleen Walsh, but who leaves her unharmed and steals only a kiss. As Allison digs deeper, it becomes a race against time as she uncovers information that leads her to believe that Kathleen's life is in grave danger.

Nominated for a Golden Globe at the young age of 13 for her work on "The Tempest," Ringwald shot to fame in the 1980's after starring in a string of coming-of-age blockbusters such as "Sixteen Candles," "The Breakfast Club," and "Pretty in Pink," landing her on the cover of Time magazine as the top young actress of the decade.

In 1992, Ringwald moved to Paris, where she most recently starred in "Enfants De Salaud," her very first performance in an entirely French-speaking role. Upon returning to America in 1996, she starred opposite Billy Bob Thornton in the short film, "Some Folks Call it a Slingblade," which was later adapted into the Oscar-winning screenplay, "Slingblade."

On Broadway, Ringwald played the legendary character of Sally Bowles in the Roundabout hit, "Cabaret," and also appeared in the Tony-nominated production, "Enchanted April." Her television credits include the Emmy-nominated "Allison Gertz Story," "Women and Men," and the 2002 two-hour television movie "The Big Time."

Jake Webber, Miquel Sandoval, David Cubitt, Sofia Vassilieva, Maria Lark and Madison and Miranda Carabello also star in "Medium."

"Medium" is produced by Picturemaker Productions, Inc. in association with Paramount Television and Grammnet Productions.
