Laurie Ulster didn’t arrive in New York by boat. But the author of this week’s very fun piece The Love Boat Cast: Where Are They Now? for biography.com still has experienced a happy ending that would have fit right in on the 1977-87 ABC-TV series. From her writer’s bio:
Laurie Ulster is a transplanted Canadian who fell in love with Manhattan about 10 minutes after her arrival at NYU. After many years as a television producer, where networks like MTV had her producing everything from musician interviews in dive bars all over the East Village to game shows in Malaysia, she made the switch to digital, overseeing sites at Fuse and A&E.
She writes a healthy baking blog, Baking Adventures in a Messy Kitchen, and is the co-founder of Read It All Up™, a multi-media initiative for kids that combines two of her favorite things, reading and eating. Currently, she can be found in the kitchens of some of the best restaurants in Manhattan, interviewing chefs for the website The Chefs Connection.
Well done. Meanwhile, just one small note of correction on her Love Boat rundown. Jill Whelan, the actress who played Captain Stubing’s daughter Vicky, no longer actively hosts The Brian and Jill Show podcast with friend Brian Phelps. They hung that up at the beginning of the year.
