Q: What did Katharine Mcphee do be­tween her time on Amer­i­can Idol and the start of Smash? — Karen Pow­ell, Glen Burnie, Md.

A: The way she tells it, the singer­ac­tress’ ex­pe­ri­ences weren’t all that far from what she’s por­tray­ing on her cur­rent NBC se­ries. Apart from mar­ry­ing boyfriend Nick Cokas in 2008, she fo­cused on act­ing and singing. Her self-named de­but al­bum was re­leased in 2007, fol­lowed by two in 2010.

As for act­ing, Mcphee’s first big project was the movie The House Bunny with Anna Faris. She then made guest ap­pear­ances on CSI: NY and Com­mu­nity.

She also co-starred in You May Not Kiss the Bride and Shark Night 3D.

Q: I have watched the show The Walk­ing Dead all sea­son, but I missed the first few min­utes, and I would like to know how the zom­bies be­came zom­bies. — Jim Mar­low, Charles City, Iowa

A: Within the his­tory of the se­ries as it has been shown on AMC, there hasn’t been a de­fin­i­tive rea­son given for how that started, at least not yet. How­ever, the pop­u­la­tion of zom­bies (or “walk­ers”) has grown through peo­ple get­ting bit­ten, so that’s how the sit­u­a­tion has ex­panded from what­ever its roots are.

Q: Now that the end of House has been an­nounced, will Jen­nifer Mor­ri­son re­turn at all as Dr. Cameron? — Scott Parker, Virginia Beach, Va.

A: It’s any­one’s guess at this point, es­pe­cially since the ac­tress is busy with her cur­rent ABC se­ries, Once Upon a Time. How­ever, she’s gone back to House be­fore ... and if the Fox med­i­cal drama wants her back for a swan-song ap­pear­ance be­fore (or dur­ing) its May 21 sign-off, we sus­pect she’ll do ev­ery­thing pos­si­ble to ac­com­mo­date that.

Q: Where has CSI: NY been this sea­son? — Dolores Trudeau, Elk Grove Vil­lage, Ill.

A: It’s slated to re­turn to CBS’ Fri­day lineup March 30. The net­work needed a place to put Un­der­cover Boss when The Amaz­ing Race re­turned to Sun­days, and it wanted to let A Gifted Man fin­ish its fresh­man sea­son un­in­ter­rupted, so it moved that med­i­cal drama an hour later ... and gave Gary Sinise and com­pany a va­ca­tion of sorts.
