TV Mom Checks Into Rehab
Angela checks into rehab for role
Thursday, March 11, 2010 17:19 GMTAUSTIN, Texas (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) One TV mom has checked herself into rehab and its having quite the opposite effect shes more of a druggie than ever.
Angela Rawna plays drug addict mom Regina Howard on Friday Night Lights.
To nail the gritty role, Rawna whos never played a druggie before checked herself into a real rehab facility in Texas.
A former addict walked her through what its really like to be a junkie by taking her to the streets where she used to score drugs.
Rawna did rehab in full-on character, from dreary clothes to little make-up, but the hands-on research has made her meaty role on FNL much more authentic.
She wants to play a lawyer next so she can visit a courtroom and sit in on trials, though the good debater doesnt need to do much research on how to win an argument.
FNL returns to television this April.
