A Thank You to 'Wizards'
by Ian Harmer
If Julia Duffy ever lands an Emmy for her portrayal of Stephanie, the hare-brained hedonist on "Newhart," she has her thank-yous all prepared.
She wants the world to know that the similarities between Stephanie Vanderkellen and Princess Ariel of the short-lived "Wizards and Warriors" are not coincidental.
"I'm still getting letters from people saying that Wizards' should never have been canceled, and that's the way I felt at the time," says Duffy. "But Stephanie gave me the opportunity to do all of the things I'd planned to try if Princess Ariel had lived longer, and at least she doesn't have to dress up in those awful, top-heavy medieval costumes!"
A visitor to the set of "Newhart" needs only a few minutes to discover that everyone in the cast thinks everyone else is the most wonderful actor and/or comedian in the business, and not a lot longer to find out that they actually mean it.
It all stems from Bob himself," Duffy says. "He's the best audience anyone could have -- he reacts to every line, encouraging you as you go; and if he's pleased with your work, you know everyone else is gong to love it."
