Evelyn White is an actor in Newfaire and a member of the Circle of the Silver Screen. She is played by Laura Bailey.

Description[edit | edit source]

Evelyn is an actress who is very proud of her ability to do her own stunts.[1] While she comes off as vain, she is more astute than she seems, as she is the first to figure out what was happening at Barker Hill,[2] and nearly sacrificed herself before Chey took her place.[3]

She speaks in a Mid-Atlantic accent.[4]

Biography[edit | edit source]

Before "Candela Obscura Live" (OSx59)[edit | edit source]

Evelyn's background was Vaudvillian in nature, though she had since made several films. She is seen as a less serious actress than her rival, Idella Montaigne.[5] She read for Idella's part in The House on Barker Hill, but did not get it.[6]

"Candela Obscura Live" (OSx59)[edit | edit source]

Following a screening of their film, Mr. Terrible, the Circle of the Silver Screen was called upon to investigate a phenomenon on Barker Hill, where a film by their rival studio, Meridian, showed what appeared to be the murder of the lead actress, Idella Montaigne, by the lead actor August Glance; and the death of the lead actor by some unseen creature. Evelyn immediately recognized Idella.

Evelyn found the bodies in the house; a number were on the living room couch and one had been pushed into the wall. There, she admitted to Jackie that she had auditioned for the role that Idella played. She later followed Chey into the basement, where they found three bodies, all apparently Idella's. Evelyn touched one and found it lifelike, and based on Chey and Lester's previous observations about the blood being present prior to the shoots, realized they were making copies of Idella and killing them for each take. While she told the others about her theory, they all heard a thump coming from one of the crates, which they opened to find one of the Idella copies, alive, bound, and gagged. At Evelyn's encouragement, after the duplicate was unable to answer her questions, Chey cut the bindings. Idella attacked him, so Evelyn punched her, and Idella grabbed her by the jaw but Chey was able to instead convince her to attack him. Evelyn cut her ankles with a dagger before Lester shot the duplicate. Jackie then took off the gag, releasing the phenomenon. Evelyn, having noticed the creature's aversion to electricity, jammed her dagger into a power outlet, scaring it away and out through a wall.

The circle continued to Briarbank College to follow a lead from the crates, where several students noticed Evelyn and asked her to sign their textbooks, which she did. Evelyn convinced Professor Douglas Schultz to tell the circle about his invention, which he gladly did in an attempt to sell her the duplication machine. After Idella called his office, clearly scared, the circle brought the professor with them to Idella's house, which had been ransacked. Once they realized someone needed to become a vessel for the freed spirit that was attacking, Evelyn got into the bathtub, but Chey picked her up and took her place.
