Moonlighting Star Recalls "Pressure"

Best known as Moonlighting's rhyming receptionist, Agnes DiPesto, whom she played from 1985 to 1989, Allyce Beasley recently taped commentary for the just-released DVDs of the detective show's first two seasons. Must have been a fun chance for the cast to reunite and reminisce, right? Wrong.

"Bruce [Willis], Cybill [Shepherd] and I all did it, but on different days," Beasley admits. "I haven't seen Cybill since the show ended. I bumped into Bruce at a store one Christmas."

So what's she's been up to since Moonlighting? After a series of TV guest spots and small film roles, the 50-year-old breast cancer survivor carved out a successful voice-over career (Lloyd in Space, Playhouse Disney).

"I was a single mom when Moonlighting wrapped, and I wanted to be the one to raise my son," she says. "Doing voice-overs was a good choice for that."
