Crystal Carson: This "Ewing" has made coaching her life

Crystal Carson's name should sound vaguely, or not-so-vaguely, familiar to "Dallas" fans. Think about it a second .... hmmm ... Crystal Carson, Crystal Carson ... something to do with Sue Ellen ... Yes! That's it! She was the one to portray Sue Ellen in that true-to-life, secret, tell-all flick J.R.'s wife made about their not-so-happy marriage.

So where did Carson go, after her few-episode stint on our show in 1989? She went to ABC's "General Hospital," for one thing, playing Julia Barrett. She also went to Fox's "Alien Nation." And "JAG," and a few other things.

For the past 15 years, though, the Nebraska-born actress has been an acting coach. She's taught at a variety of places, including the University of Nebraska and Fox TV. And hey, if her client list includes David Boreanaz, whose dead-on delivery makes Fox's "Bones" a joy to watch, she's gotta be pretty good. She also has coached April Scott, who was Daisy Duke in the 2007 "Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning" movie.

Catch up -- and keep up -- with Carson at her official website, CrystalCarson.com and at her MySpace page or Facebook profile.
