Shiri Appleby dedicated her “Shiri Shares” newsletter to the fans of Roswell. In the latest edition, she shares the story of how she got the job playing Liz Parker on the cult classic.
She started the letter to her fans in an all Roswellian way:
It’s September 23rd. Journal entry 1. I’m Liz Parker and 5 months ago I started a newsletter. After that, things got really weird.
I just want to take this opportunity to thank all the Roswell fans out there. Never in my wildest imagination did I think a show I made at 20 years old would live on 20 years later.
Here’s a story I’d like to share with you.

Thank you Shiri! Thanks for being so strong and for fighting for this amazing role.
