The ‘How Do I Live’ hitmaker has landed a cameo appearance on her husband’s Netflix drama series ‘Country Comfort’, more than a decade after their onscreen romance in ‘Northern Lights’.
LeAnn plays herself in the fifth episode of “Country Comfort“, which debuted this week (ends19Mar21).
In the drama, Eddie plays a widowed single father raising five kids with the help of a nanny, played by new mum Katharine McPhee.
On the episode, Rimes agrees to visit Eddie’s character and his kids after learning how much of a fan his late wife was, and performs “I Need You” and “Can’t Fight the Moonlight” at their home.
“Caryn Lucas, our showrunner, called and said, ‘Hey, we got this part. We think LeAnn would be perfect for it. Do you think she’d want to do it…?’ ” Eddie told Us Weekly.
“So I asked her… and she’s like, ‘Oh, I’d love to.’ And that’s how it kind of came about – pretty organic.”
On Friday, Rimes posted a shot of herself and Cibrian on the set and added the caption, “So proud and excited for my hubby @EddieCibrian and the whole CC cast and crew! Their brand new series #CountryComfort is out TODAY on @netflix. They had a ‘take your wife to work day’ while filming, so I got to go play on set.”
LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian previously shared screen in Lifetime’s 2009 TV movie “Northern Lights“. They were soon romantically linked, leading to LeAnn’s divorce from Dean Sheremet and Eddie’s separation from Brandi Glanville.
