CBS Soaps In Depth - - Ins & Outs -

Even when she’s not ap­pear­ing as B&B’S Shirley or work­ing on out­side TV projects, Pa­trika Darbo is still deeply en­trenched in the tele­vi­sion world as gover­nor to the Tele­vi­sion Academy’s Per­form­ers Peer Group. In this elected po­si­tion, the ac­tress works di­rectly with fel­low gover­nor Lily Tom­lin to help rep­re­sent TV per­form­ers and tackle is­sues per­tain­ing to the industry. “It’s a lot of work,” Darbo con­cedes of the gig. “My sched­ule is crazy, but I like to keep busy.” Darbo also likes that the lead­er­ship role al­lows her to use a part of her brain dif­fer­ent from the one she uses when act­ing. If she could of­fer up one piece of ad­vice, what would it be? “Use your brain as much as pos­si­ble,” she ex­claims. “The brain is a mus­cle that needs to be worked, and lord knows it’s the only one I’m ex­er­cis­ing right now!”

Darbo is even busier off screen than she is on!
