Seven Questions with Josie Davis of Charles in Charge and New Movie Backstabbed; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of September 5, 2016)

Today, we've got another installment of Seven Questions and this time we have Josie Davis from the new TV movie Backstabbed, which premieres tomorrow night (Saturday, Sept. 3, 2016) at 8:00pm ET on Lifetime. She is talking to us about that movie of course, but also her career to date, including how she got on Charles in Charge, her favorite guest stars including Paul Walker (who was her first kiss) & Pamela Anderson, how she changed her look on 90210 & Titans, and all of her juicy and addicting TV movies in recent years. She also talks about some of her upcoming work such as a web series, another new TV movie and her "Ask Josie" YouTube series. It's an extensive look on Josie's career so far, so you will want to tune in below to hear it from Josie herself!

And now of course she stars in the new TV movie Backstabbed on Lifetime. The movie premieres tomorrow at 8pm on Lifetime. It stars Josie Davis, Brittany Underwood, Micah Alberti, Kevin Spirtas, Brad Lee Wind, and Amanda Musso. A struggling housewife decides to become a real estate agent and inadvertently puts her life in danger when she takes a job with a corrupt broker who will do anything to close a deal... lie, steal, cheat or kill! So without further adieu, it's time for our "Seven Questions," with the great and beautiful Josie Davis!

"Seven Questions with Backstabbed's Josie Davis"

Josie Davis

SitcomsOnline: Hi Josie! I have to say we have been a fan of your work for a long time so it is an honor speaking with you! Charles in Charge was such a great show and you were so good on 90210, Titans and all the addicting TV movies in recent years. We have to start off with Charles in Charge. It's one of our favorite sitcoms, as it is just pure fun and laughs. The dynamic between Charles and the kids was a riot. Can you share with our readers how you got the role of Sarah Powell and share some other memories from the show?

Charles in Charge

SitcomsOnline: Any favorite episodes or guest stars that you have? Or something unique from your time on the show that not many people knew about?
Josie Davis: (click below to see what Josie says!)



SitcomsOnline: So after Charles in Charge ended you were about 17 or 18 I believe. Did you take some time off immediately after the show? Like did you go finish up school right after? And how difficult was it overcoming being a child star in those few years after Charles in Charge ended? Was it tough?
Josie Davis: (click below to see what Josie says! Three parts to this question.)




Josie Davis

SitcomsOnline: So in the mid to late '90s/early 2000s you kind of reinvented yourself (shorter hair and a blonde bombshell!), with sexy roles on shows like Beverly Hills 90210 and the underrated Titans. Do you think you reinvented yourself or did you have to? What drew you to these roles and what did you enjoy doing the most from this era?
Josie Davis: (click below to see what Josie says! Two parts to this question.)


Dirty Teacher

SitcomsOnline: In recent years (since about 2008 through now) you have been amazing in lead roles in TV movies airing on Lifetime, LMN or Hallmark. I have watched them all; they're so good and addicting (you're still a bombshell and now with the longer hair)! Which one of these TV movies was your favorite to work on and who did you enjoy working with the most (maybe Natasha Henstridge, Eddie Cibrian, Rachel Hunter, Lochlyn Munro, etc.)? I loved Dirty Teacher a lot!

SitcomsOnline: Tell us more about Backstabbed. Who do you play, what's the movie about and anything else you'd like for fans to know?

Backstabbed

SitcomsOnline: And finally, what else do you have coming up that we can look forward to? Please I hope a regular TV series is in the works (we need to see you on our screens every single week, preferably on a sitcom!) and more TV movies? And would you like to share anything else with our readers/listeners?
