‘The Event’ Star Lisa Vidal Preparing To See Her Son Off To College

Lisa Vidal, who plays first lady Christina Martinez on the new hit show “The Event“, talks kids and working with Blair Underwood.  Lisa and her husband Jay Cohen share three kids together: Scott, 17, Max, 12, and Olivia, 7.

Even though her oldest, Scott, won’t be leaving until next Fall, she’s already looking forward to it:

I’m really excited for him. I remember when I went to college, and just sort of feeling like I was starting this new chapter in my life, and I feel that way for him.”

I’m not sad just yet.  But just wait, when I leave him I’ll be crying!”

Lisa is a soccer mom and loves every minute of it:

“All three of my kids play soccer. Each one of them started from the time they were about 5 or 6, and we just love it. Every weekend we break out our chairs and umbrellas and travel [to the games].”

She credits Blair Underwood for bringing “The Event” to her attention:

“We’d been looking for something to work together on — he’s been a theater friend for 14 years. After Blair signed on, he called me and said the script was amazing. I read it and agreed, my agents got me in for a meeting.

Are you tuning for “The Event”?  If so, what do you think so far?  I haven’t had a chance to check it out, but I hear it’s good!
