Meet Lauren Ambrose, the woman behind 'Torchwood's' Jilly Kitzinger - actress, singer and a resident of Western Massachusetts
She first came to public attention as teen Claire Fisher on HBO's "Six Feet Under," a drama about a funeral home.
These days, she's known to sci fi fans as Jilly Kitzinger, a public relations expert who is providing much of the intrigue in "Torchwood: Miracle Day." The plot centers on what happens when people stop dying, regardless of disease or injury.
In real life, Ambrose is a trained singer with her own seven-piece combo, Leisure Class, based in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts. Read the Associated Press story here, courtesy of MassLive.com
