Lydnsy Fonseca on Desperate Housewives with Eva Longoria!!

We have been waiting all summer and it is almost time for.... Desperate Housewives Season Four to start. Tune into ABC this Sunday, September 30 to catch one IMTA's superstars, Eva Longoria in her smash hit show Desperate Housewives. The name of the first episode is called Now You Know and it's about one neighbor's demise and new neighbors arriving! And guess who plays the daughter of the new family??? Another hugely talented IMTA star Lyndsy Fonseca!!

In the ongoing dramedy, Lyndsy plays Dylan Mayfair, the daughter of Dana Delaney's character, who is moving back to Wisteria Lane with her younger husband. To make things extra-mysterious, Lyndsy's character has no recollection of living there and it's due to a startling secret that will unfold this season. You can see a preview here with scenes of Lyndsy. Choose New Season 4 castmates discuss the show or Meet the New Neighbors to see Lyndsy.

Lyndsy competed at IMTA in 2003 where she won 2nd Runner up for Young Miss Dancer of the Year and Honorable Mention Young Miss Talent of the Year. At the convention she signed with an agent and manager and moved to Los Angeles for her first pilot season at age 13. The following year, at 14, Lyndsy booked a three year contract for the role of Colleen on The Young and the Restless. In an interview with IMTA , Lyndsy said, "IMTA was a lot of fun. It's how I imagine college might be - where you room with a bunch of other girls and then go off to classes together. Only one year after IMTA, I was offered a contract with Y&R!" When the contract ended Lynsdy worked on various projects such as: Heroes, Close to Home, The Beautiful Ordinary, How I Met Your Mother, Phil of the Future, Big Love, Intellectual Property, Waterfront, Cyber Seduction, I Do, They Don't, Malcolm in the Middle, and Boston Public. Lyndsy also shot commercials for Radio Shack and Captain Crunch.

Eva's much-loved portrayal of the spoiled Gabby Solis will find her character in all sorts of dilemmas this season! She has been busy with many leading projects since competing at IMTA in 1998. She starred in the films Harsh Times, The Sentinel, and in L.A. Dragnet. Her television roles include guest spots on The Bold and the Beautiful, General Hospital, Beverly Hills, 90210, and The Young and the Restless. Eva has been named one of AOL's Sexist Primetime TV stars, one of People's "50 Most Beautiful", the "#1 Hottest Woman in the World" by Maxim, voted by Variety as one of the "Ten New Faces to Watch", one of Rolling Stone's "People of the Year," USA Today's "TV's Hot 11" and TV Guide's "New Faces of Fall." She has an exclusive worldwide contract as the face of L'Oreal, is the spokeswoman for both Bebe apparel and Padres Contra El Cancer,which helps Latinos with cancer, and she just shot a PSA for cancer awareness and her tv show Desperate Housewives received 6 Emmy nominations!! We are very excited to see lovely Lyndsy in her new role as Dylan on Desperate Housewives and watch Eva starring in her role as Gabby in the episodes to come!!!
