ENTERTAINMENT 24 www.communitynews.com.au June 12, 2019 Return to Eden Belinda Cipriano Hagman’s character J.R. Ewing. “It was very strange – I played his ex-lover and I got him, I got him good,” she said with a laugh. As well as working with Hagman, Eden worked with Lucille Ball and the king of rock and roll Elvis Presley – two people she described as beautiful and who she remembered fondly. “It all happened when I was first starting out and first was Lucy – that was my third job in Hollywood,” she said. “She was so smart, so funny and was wonderful to me. She treated me beautifully. “She wanted to sign me to a contract because she wanted to get a group of female comedians but I had already signed with 21st Century Fox at that time. “She was so selfless; I’ll never forget her. “As for Elvis, my sister is crazy about Elvis; she still has his picture beside her bed. “He was just a very good man, a gentleman.” In recent years, Eden has been in television movies, stage productions, written her memoir and, surprising even herself, made a brief appearance on the reality show The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. SHE cast a spell on audiences worldwide in her iconic role as Jeannie in the 1965 television series and decades later Barbara Eden will delight audiences as part of her Supanova appearance in Perth this month. Eden, who played the role of the mischievous Jeannie for five seasons and starred alongside Larry Hagman, said it was a time she loved and was grateful for. “I loved it; I liked her, she was very easy to live with,” Eden said. “She wasn’t really human, she was an entity. “Working with Larry was heaven and I couldn’t think of anyone else doing that part. “After we toured together with the play and we did a couple of movies together. “We just seemed to be on the same wavelength and it’s rare that when you work with an actor that your rhythms are the same.” The pair reunited years later in where Eden played LeeAnne De La Vega, the jilted lover of “I didn’t even know I was on television,” she laughed. “At the time we were filming (a Hallmark Christmas movie) and I was Mrs Santa Claus. That’s why I had the red dress and the funny wig, but I didn’t know it was going to be on television until several people called me and asked.” As for what fans can expect at this year’s convention, Eden said she would be behaving and using her powers for good. “I’ll be a very good girl and won’t cause any trouble, although it’s more fun isn’t it?” she said. “Australian people are wonderful. There isn’t anything I don’t like about Australia and if I could have one wish I would blink for world peace for very obvious reasons. “I don’t have any personal wishes. I am very happy with my life the way it is.” Eden will appear at Supanova in the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre from June 28 to 30. For tickets, visit www.supanova.com.au.
