It’s been a few months since Simone Russell left the heartbreak of Harmony behind for the promise of New Orleans. Many fans were sad to see the charming and strong willed character go. Simone will likely be best remembered as a character who broke down some barriers for the depiction of lesbians on daytime TV and earned the show awards and accolades from civil rights groups. Simone has been played by three different actresses in the history of Passions. The last actress who played her, Cathy Jeneen Doe, has since moved on to other things. After playing the part from 2004 until 2007, Doe has returned to her roots in independent films and recently wrapped shooting on a new romantic comedy called Expecting Love. The film is a Polish production, though it stars several American actors, and was shot in both Poland and Los Angeles. It tells the story of an American business man who meets, falls in love with and impregnates an underage girl (he didn’t know this last bit at the time). Doe plays the part of Chloe in the film which is expected to be released early next year. If you’d like additional information, please check out the official website.
