Candice Bergen - Candice Bergen Reunites With Murphy Brown Cast

Veteran actress Candice Bergen reunited with the cast of her hit sitcom Murphy Brown on U.S. TV on Friday (20Apr12) to reminisce about the show, 14 years after it went off air.
Bergen, who starred as the title character - a famous investigative reporter and news anchor for fictional TV news programme Fyi, met up with her former co-stars Faith Ford, Charles Kimbrough, Grant Shaud and Joe Regalbuto and series creator Diane English days after they reconvened for the TV Land Awards last weekend (14Apr12) for a Good Morning America special about their 10 years together.
English recalled how Cbs network bosses tried to convince her actress Heather Locklear was better suited for the lead role, but she stood her ground and fought for Bergen - and she's glad she did, because the show went on to win multiple Golden Globe and Emmy Awards from the moment it launched in 1988.
English said, "There was not a character like her (Bergen) in television comedy until she came along."
And co-star Ford revealed Bergen, now 65, was an unlikely prankster onset.
Ford said, "She never stopped pranking us. I would be sitting there in the show... and I would feel water trickling down my face, and I would look up, 'Where is that water coming from?' and she (Bergen) would get the water in her mouth and she would stand above and just drizzle it on me!"
Acting stunned by the revelation, Bergen played dumb and dismissed the tale, joking, "I have no recollection of that!"
