Getting 'Leverage' Out of 'Coupling'

British actress Gina Bellman says she's recognized more in the United States than in the U.K. as that actress from the British comedy series "Coupling."

Bellman came to Summer TV Press Tour 2008 here in Beverly Hills on Friday to plug her TNT drama "Leverage," from Dean Devlin, producer of "Independence Day" and "The Patriot." The new show is about a group of hackers, thieves, con artists and grifters who help out people who are being taken advantage of by powerful bad guys.

One critic wondered whether Bellman gets recognized a lot as "the 'Coupling' lady."

"I don't know if it's because the British are a bit more laid-back, but I think it's more a case of 'Coupling' still runs here and it hasn't run in England for a long time ... actually I get much more recognition here because it's on all the time," she said, adding, "and I love that."

One of the lead guys on the UK Coupling is starring in Swing Town now. How soon until the entire cast relocates here to improve US television?

I'm disappointed CBS chose to burn off Swing Town in the summer as my partner and I are enjoying it a LOT. I guess they just had to run it when the fundies aren't watching...

Yeah, and the woman that played Susan was on that sit com "teachers" that only lasted about two episodes. Patrick shows up in the movies now and then, but I have yet to notice Jeff anywhere.
