What Happened To Susan May Pratt? The 'Center Stage' Actress Took To TV
In the early 2000s, actress Susan May Pratt had some prominent roles in teen movies like like 10 Things I Hate About You and Drive Me Crazy. I mostly remember her as the bitchy, uptight Maureen Cummings in the classic dance flick Center Stage, which was released 15 years ago. Since then, Pratt has continued to act on TV shows, but she's also a mom and a wife. She got married to actor Kenneth Mitchell in 2006 and they have a son and a daughter. All together now: Aww!
Pratt isn't too active on social media — she is a busy mom, after all — but she did exchange tweets in 2011 with Center Stage co-star Amanda Schull, who played Jody Sawyer in the film. "Susan!!! So exciting to hear from you! How are you? Where are you?" Schull tweeted. Pratt tweeted back that she was in LA and wondered if there was a way to message each other privately. Pratt also tweeted at Drive Me Crazy co-star Melissa Joan Hart, just to say hi. But look at that, social media is putting the stars of our favorite movies back in touch with each other.
Off Twitter and onto the TV screen, here are some of Pratt's notable roles on TV since Center Stage.
In 2010, Pratt guest-starred on the fourth season episode "Hands And Knees," in which she played a hysterical mother that Joan meets at an abortion clinic.
Shondaland Dramas Off The Map and Private Practice
In 2009, Pratt played Barbara on the third season of the ABC medical drama. Barbara is a depressed woman that Pete treats and gets electroshock therapy. After the procedure, she feels better, but has no recollection of her fiance. Uh oh.
After that, Pratt guest starred on the short-lived drama Off The Map (that was the one about doctors in paradise featuring Meryl Streep's daughter Mamie Gummer) in 2011. Pratt played a woman named Becky in the episode "I'm Home."
Drop Dead Diva
In the Season 4 episode "Family Matters," Pratt plays Beth, a mother to a 15-year-old who overdosed at a rave.
The Ghost Whisperer
In the episode "Ghost Bride," Pratt guests as Lisa Brody, a bride and a glass supplier whose wedding gets a little spirited — and she must get Jennifer Love Hewitt's help.
Searching For Paradise
Pratt starred in this 2002 indie movie with Chris Noth (Mr. Big himself) about a girl named Gilda (Pratt) who sets off on a journey to meet her favorite actor (played by Noth) in order to get over the grief of her father's recent death. The movie was written and directed by Myra Paci. Pratt won best actress for this role at the Milan International Film Festival.
