Lisa Nicole Carson has the distinction of having simultaneously starred in television's most lauded comedy and drama series.
Like many other Americans, Lisa Nicole Carson holds down more than one job. On Fox's Ally McBeal, she's Ally's feisty roommate. On NBC's ER, she's the mother of Dr. Benton's son. She's filming a movie, Life, with Martin Lawrence and Eddie Murphy. A few Mondays ago, she appeared on two Fox sitcoms, Damon and Getting Personal, plus Ally McBeal.
Her advice for people who punch a lot of clocks: "It helps if you really enjoy your jobs." She grins. "If you don't, then just think about the money."
The Brooklyn-born Carson, 28, always has many roles in her. She played Yenta the matchmaker in a grade-school production of Fiddler on the Roof but craved more. "I wanted to be Tevye. I wanted to be all his daughters at once. I knew everybody's lines, everyone's inflections. I wanted to sing Sunrise, Sunset so badly it was killing me."
She thought her big break had come in 1992, with a role in the final episode of The Cosby Show. She had two lines to say, but both were cut. She was crushed to have to stand there, mute. She tried to ad-lib but was reprimanded. "Not one word!" an assistant director snapped.
So Carson made her mark with facial expressions. "I tried to have this attitude and emotion in my face." Her message for viewers: "I had lines to say, and if you could hear them, they'd be damn good!" The moral of her story: "You have to find a way."
Carson has big plans. A former lead singer for a female rock band, she expects to record her own R&B/ pop compositions. She dreams of a career like Barbra Streisand's."I'm unable to ignore the gift that God gave me," she says, "so I'm going to sing."
