'Two and a Half Men': This Is "Lydia" In 2020
"Lydia" had a brief but memorable run as the "Evelyn"-like girlfriend of "Charlie Harper" on Two and a Half Men. Actress Katherine LaNasa played the part perfectly in season 4 and a few later episodes. Where is she in 2020?
When "Lydia" arrived on Two and a Half Men, seemingly everyone except "Charlie Harper" could see how similar she was to his mom, "Evelyn."
Nevertheless, "Charlie" fell for "Lydia" and dated her for a period that lasted several episodes in season 4. She was ousted by "Charlie" only after she mistreated "Berta."
"Berta" quit her job and forced an ultimatum on "Charlie," which led to the departure of "Lydia."

Following season 4, actress Katherine LaNasa portrayed "Lydia" only twice more - once in season 7 and season 9. Where is LaNasa today?
Since we last saw "Lydia" on Two and a Half Men in a 2011 cameo, Katherine LaNasa has worked prolifically in TV series alongside the occasional film role.
The now 53-year-old actress has served in many recurring roles and, unfortunately, in regular roles on several shows that were cancelled after short-lived runs.
Fans have seen LaNasa in series including Longmire, Dynasty, and Devious Maids. She was also a regular on Deception, Satisfaction, and Imposters.

HOLD ON AND KEEP CALM. Sending love and compassion to everyone dealing with #corona and #quarantine . This is scary time for us all, and I find myself feeling very anxious. However, I am trying to find a way to return to myself everyday. Usually with some spiritual reading and meditation. And just doing the next right action. Some days better than others. I want to stay in gratitude for the very blessed life I have, and in compassion for myself when I forget that, and in prayer for those that are truly suffering. Peace be with all y'all. ❤️
