Teri Polo Learns To Like Her Character

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Actress Teri Polo has learned a lot while working on her new TV series, The Wedding Bells – mainly to like her character.

Polo – who is best known as Ben Stiller’s wife in Meet The Parents and Meet The Fockers – now plays an uptight woman who runs a wedding planning business with her two sisters.

She admits that, at first, she was “a little concerned” she was cast as the oldest sister because, as she puts it, “usually when that happens, it’s Hollywood telling you your time is up.”

However, after reading the first few scripts, she’s discovered her supposedly uptight character is actually “a volcano of emotions.”

As she puts it, “She can be sarcastic and ornery or throw a teenage fit when someone reads her diary.”

The Wedding Bells debuts March 7 on Fox, before moving to Friday nights starting March 9.

Only 13 shows have been filmed so far but Polo figures it can last forever because “weddings inspire a myriad of story ideas.”
