—El­lis O., Den­ver, Colo. A: There are many rea­sons—but one of the main ones is that ac­tors love, and live, to act. Jen­nifer Mor­ri­son, 38, who plays Emma Swan on TV’s Once Upon a Time, is one of the lat­est to seek the stage. She re­cently joined the cast of The End of Long­ing, writ­ten by and star­ring an­other TV alum, Friends star Matthew Perry, 47. Perry, who launched the play in Lon­don, de­scribes it as “dark” with “a lot of swear­ing.” He adds, “I just wanted to write some­thing by my­self . . . and re­al­ized I was writ­ing a play.” The play, about four peo­ple feel­ing the pres­sures of life as they meet their 40s, opens May 18 at New York City’s Lu­cille Lor­tel The­atre.
