Joan Van Ark To Guest Star on PRETTY The Series

Joan Van Ark, who soap fans loved as Valene Ewing on KNOTS LANDING for many years, will be making a guest appearance on the second season of PRETTY, the show announced today. PRETTY has lined up a long line of impressive guest stars including daytime legend Denise Alexander (GENERAL HOSPITAL, DAYS OF OUR LIVES, ANOTHER WORLD).

Van Ark's other work includes originating the role of Gloria on THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS (now played by Judith Chapman) back in 2004.

Her other soap appearances were on DALLAS (where Valene got her start), NIP/TUCK, DAYS OF OUR LIVES and PEYTON PLACE.

  1. Great news for Joan Van Ark and "Pretty"!

    I haven't watched the show but I'm willing to give it a try.

  2. I will watched Joan on anything. This show looks like a hoot.

  3. (NelsonAspen) Joan is an absolute sweetheart and so talented. We met in a supermarket checkout line about 15 years ago and became pals. I've interviewed her, done staged readings with her...she is awesome. (And she is an amazing, committed runner, too!) PRETTY is lucky to have her.

    She also told me some trivia which, as Carol Lynley's #1 fan, really blew me away. Larry Hagman, a longtime friend & neighbor of Carol's, originally offered HER the role of Val Ewing on DALLAS. But when Carol wasn't available, the part went to Joan!

  4. OMG Denise Alexander Looks Crazy Cool In That Promo & She Looks Like She's Having A Blast

  5. I can't wait for season 3 of Pretty. Season one was a scream! It's one of the best comedy web series we cover on Indie Intertube. Love it!
