It’s time to get to know the cast members of Murder with Mummies. Who’s sweet? Innocent? Crazy? Bossy? What kind of person commits murder?
To start, there’s Amelia Schwartzberg (Cheryl Crabb), Gerald’s long-suffering wife. Having fallen for Gerald’s charms years ago, she’s since had to live a life without many charming moments. Instead of dealing with that reality, she’s chosen to live within fiction and history. Does she come around to the present long enough to kill?
Could Wes Baker (Conrad Bianco), the archaeologist, really be as naïve and innocent as he appears? Or, could the notoriety of making the biggest archaeological find of the century alter his ego? Changing him into someone totally unlike himself.
Let me introduce you to the snooty Ms. Delilah Holmes (Cassie Culpepper), the antiques appraiser. Ms. Holmes has made sure she got the appraiser’s position. Why was it so important to her? Could she have past history with Gerald Schwartzberg that would entice her to murder him?
Now Zahi Abdullah (Mark LaMarche) is not only here for the exhibit as the protector of the Egyptian artifacts, but he’s using this time in the U.S. to find himself a second wife too. Ladies, in case you’re looking for Mr. Right, Dr. Abdullah works with the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities, enjoys walking along the banks of the Nile, being fed grapes in a tent, and traveling to a faraway oasis. Could this wife hunting really be a ruse to distract you from his plot to kill Gerald?
Now, the tabloid magazine reporter, B.J. Cameron (Valerie Boyce), definitely has past history with Mr. Schwartzberg, or should I say Professor Schwartzberg? Can she overcome the need for revenge with pen and paper instead of seeking murderous vengeance?
Finally, there’s the stressed event planner, Karen Smithson, (Bridget Yeager) who needs this event to be a success for her business. When Gerald tries taking over, does that cause Ms. Smithson to snap? Did this shy, unassuming business owner reach her breaking point and commit murder?
All of these people are fed up with Gerald’s domineering, high-handed ways. Any guess yet who finally turned on him? Maybe you’ll just have to see the show and find out for yourself.
