Released just in time for the holiday season, it’s the official launch of the second edition of Daphne Ashbrook’s memoir, Dead Woman Laughing – An Actors ‘Take’ from Both Sides of the Camera.
Witty, self-effacing and painfully honest; the themes of life, death and laughter come together as Daphne Ashbrook recounts her many on-and off-screen scrapes with mortality.
Packed with anecdotes stretching from her childhood years right up to her memorable performances in the 1996 Doctor Who movie, in which she played Dr. Grace Holloway, and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as the titular character in Melora – Daphne discovers the surprising patterns and hilarious absurdities that accompany being a modern-day professional actress.
