‘Almost legal’ almost famous
Soap opera has red carpet premiere
By Kelly Maria Howard
Staff Reporter

It was a plastic red carpet entrance for the cast of the TCU radio-TV-film soap opera, “Almost Legal,” at the world premiere Wednesday in Moudy Building South.
LaVar Veale, a senior theatre-TV major, said he was in the last TCU soap opera that aired in spring 1999, “Studio 13,” and plays Hayden in the new one. He said he expects the episodes to improve because they were filmed in a class environment and the cast is learning to get better as the semester goes on.
“Everyone is more dedicated this year than when I did it three years ago because we had actors that really didn’t take it that serious,” Veale said.
