I don't see how by being married to another actor automatically means one has to act like him or her.
Each person has their own talent and ability.
I have been watching the show and it is obvious subtlety in acting is not called for here. Each character emulates the qualities of a particular animal. DB is representing a peacock and she's been told to be like one. And we all know what peacocks are best at...dancing.
My only complaint about the show is that at the moment it's bordering on the slapstick and, as a result DB's, talents might get restricted in this role.. I would have liked to have seen DB in a more serious role.
Nevertheless, it's nice to watch her on TV on her own standing. So far, I've known of her as GC's wife.
Good luck, DB and hope this is the beginning of better things to come.
PS: I hope people don't use this forum in the future as a place to bash DB. We get enough of it elsewhere.
