DOWNTOWN PERSONALITY LOOKS UP TO SOAP OPERAS

SHARE DOWNTOWN PERSONALITY LOOKS UP TO SOAP OPERAS

Some aspiring thespians tend to look down on soap operas, but not Downtown Julie Brown.

When the MTV veejay met with her agents to talk about her acting goals, she gave them a bit of a shock when she announced her great ambition was to be on a soap."Ten agents stood there in disbelief, going, `Uhhhhhh . . . oh-kaaaaay.' " But as the British immigrant told TV Guide: "I don't want to sound daft or anything - but I've wanted to be on a soap ever since I got here."

So her agents got her a recurring role on ABC's "Loving," where she'll play a bartender at an upscale bowling alley.

"The show's not sure what it's getting into," she said. "When somebody's labeled `Downtown Julie Brown from MTV,' it sounds like trouble's coming."
