Jennifer Beals on Lie To Me

8:30pm – Tuesday, August 4 on TV 3

Some truths will be revealed about the world’s leading deception expert when Jennifer Beals (The L Word) begins her guest star arc on Lie To Me, screening on Tuesday, August 4th at 8:30pm on 3.

Lie To Me stars Tim Roth as Dr. Cal Lightman, the world’s leading deception expert who studies facial expressions and involuntary body language to discover not only if someone is lying, but why.

Based on the real-life scientific discoveries of Dr. Paul Ekman, the series follows Lightman and his team of deception experts as they assist law enforcement and government agencies to expose the truth behind the lies.

Beals will guest-star on the series as Zoe Landau, the ex-wife of Cal Lightman, and Emily’s (Hayley McFarland) mother.

When Zoe, an assistant U.S. Attorney, hires The Lightman Group to offer their expertise on an arson case, it becomes clear that she and Cal still carry a torch for each other.

“Her character is definitely a well-to-do, successful and independent woman,” series star Monica Raymund tells American TV Guide about the woman who’s said to cause a few ripples in Dr. Cal Lightman’s life.

“She doesn’t need Cal’s approval or judgment on anything; she’s definitely her own woman.”

As for viewers learning what the truth behind the marriage dissolving is, Raymund says this will be a gradual revelation, one that will keep audiences guessing till the very end.

“Actually, we are not told that yet,” she says. “That’s a secret that will evolve. But we all have our own assumptions.”

Could this mean that a guest role could turn into a permanent cast addition? Find out when old sparks fly between Cal and Zoe on Lie To Me, screening on Tuesday, August 4th at 8:30pm on 3.
