New Faces In Town?
Tuesday, December 05, 2006
In recent weeks, OLTL has issued a slew of casting calls for new - and existing - characters. Here's a rundown of who may be headed to Llanview.
The !n Depth Story: Just days after a notice was posted seeking to recast Sarah (aka Flash, last played by Shanelle Workman from 2003-'04), an insider told In Depth that the soap had decided to put her return on hold for a few more months. As for the chances of Workman returning to the role when OLTL does decide to bring a more mature Sarah back to the canvas, the star's manager, Michael Bruno, tells In Depth, "I know Shanelle would love to come back. They know how to get in touch with us."
So who are the new characters possibly headed to town? In Depth hears that AMC alums Matt Walton (ex Terry, AMC) and Matt Borlenghi (ex -Brian) were both auditioning for the con-tract role of Miles. Soap vets Chris Beetem (ex-Nikolas, GH) and Linden Ashby (Curtis, LOVING) were also screentesting for a role.
Furthermore, OLTL is looking for a quick turn-around on bringing to the canvas Tate Harmon, an all-American former pro baseball player in his late 20s/early 30s. And to beef up the female roster, an insider reports that the show is seeking an African-American or Latina actress to play Monica.
