On Nov. 6, 2012, Celeb Buzz sat with actress Virginia Welch, who stars as Casey Anthony in the upcoming Lifetime film "Prosecuting Casey Anthony" and she spoke about the role she is playing.
Referring to the part as the opportunity of a lifetime, Welch admitted that she had to do a lot of research in order to get into character as she doesn't watch a lot of news.
Welch stated, "I don’t watch lot of news. I really didn’t know much about the trial prior to filming. Once I was cast, that was when it was, like, in the cave."
Her ignorance of the case might have contributed to her decision of accepting the role as there has been public outcry against the movie and anyone who attempts to take part in anything seen as glorifying Caylee Anthony's death.
It has been reported that Casey Anthony is a minor character in the film that is based upon prosecutor Jeff Ashton's book.
