UI alum reprises role on HBO show
You can once again see the acting skills of a University of Illinois alumna on HBO this weekend.
Season two of The Newsroom premieres on Sunday night, and Arlington Heights native Margaret Judson is reprising her role of Tess Westin. The show is a behind the scenes look at a fictional network TV newsroom, including portrayals of current events.
The WDWS newsroom was unable to reach Judson ahead of this weekend's premiere. But when we spoke with her last year, she drew parallels between her current job as an actress and her college education in journalism.
Judson in that interview also described the HBO experience as a well oiled machine and said that she was attracted to the professionalism and commitment of the show's crew.
Season two of The Newsroom premieres Sunday at 9 p.m. on HBO.
