Carlsbadistan’s Bridget Regan began acting as a child in North County productions of The Wizard of Oz at the La Paloma Theatre and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, but now the actress (whose parents still live in Carlsbad) is playing “dagger-wielding, mind-controlling heroine from another TV demention,” according to a story in the San Diego Union-Tribune.
Inspired by the Sword of Truth novels by Terry Goodkind, “Legend of the Seeker” follows the adventures of the brave and noble Richard Cypher (Craig Horner) as he battles the loathsome tyrant, Darken Rahl. Regan plays his comrade and love interest Kahlan Amnell, a brave and strong-willed sorceress (also known as a Confessor) who can control the minds of anyone who loves her. Kahlan is also quick with a dagger. Regan? Not so much.
Legend of the Seeker airs Sundays at 5 PM on KSWB Channel 69 (Cable 5). Luckily it’s also on Hulu.com for those smart enough to have ditched their cable boxes years ago.
