Rhea also played the recurring character Ellen Swatello in the TNT comedy-drama Franklin & Bash, and Cheri Baldzikowski in ABC’s sitcom I’m With Her. Other notable roles include Charlotte in USA Network’s The Starter Wife, Nicole in FOX’s Head Cases and Stephanie in NBC’s The Singles Table.
Though now living in Los Angeles, California, AMC tells us Rhea has called a number of locations home, including Virginia Beach, Washington, D.C., Arizona and even Japan.

Better Call Saul
Giving the shows origins and their general physical similarities, it’s inevitable that many viewers will initially make comparisons between Kim and Anna Gunn’s Breaking Bad character Skylar White.
Describe by AMC as “A smart and hardworking lawyer”, they say “Kim’s history with Jimmy complicates their working relationship, and may ultimately compromise her career goals.” Jimmy of course refers to Jimmy McGill, which we quickly learn to be the real life name of Saul Goodman, played by actor Bob Odenkirk.
If BCS turns out to be half the success story Breaking Bad has become, and with a second season already in the works this appears highly likely, the spin-off prequel could easily propel Rhea into worldwide showbiz stardom.
Better Call Saul premiered on AMC in America on Sunday February 8, 2015 and in the UK via the online movie/TV streaming service Netflix on Monday February 9.
