Lindsay Hartley is one busy gal.  First, we see her bumped off suddenly on Days of our Lives as Arianna.  Then,  she is cast in short order by All My Children as Cara Finn, the woman from Ricky Paull Goldin’s, Jake Martin’s past.  And to top it off, she is on her way to play Mad Harriett on the CW hit series, Smallville!   TV Guide spoke to Lindsay about her myriad of roles and her new beginnings in Pine Valley.  Here are a few excerpts!

Hartley on if she pursued AMC after being given her walking papers with DAYS: “When I was told I was leaving Days, I had my management contact some of the L.A.-based soap operas. [AMC exec producer] Julie Carruthers and her casting director, Judy Wilson, wanted to meet with me. Incredible women! I was blown away by both of them. I was so open to anything and everything going in there — I even told them I’d love to do a lesbian storyline with Bianca. I came home and told Justin what I’d volunteered to do and he was, like, “All-right, babe! Let’s put it out there!” Bianca [being revealed] as a lesbian was an awesome story. I’d love to be a part of that. Anyway, about a week and a half after the meeting, they called wanting to test me with Ricky Paull to see if we had chemistry. A day after the test I had the job.  I love this character.  She’s not a girl. I feel like she’s the first truly mature woman I’ve had a chance to play. You find out [Cara and Jake] fell in love while working in Africa with Doctors Without Borders and they got married but something went down and Cara took off with another man. At least that’s what Jake believes happened, and that’s what the audience will believe. Then there’s the truth, which will slowly unravel.”

Hartley on if she was surprised to get the ax from DAYS: “That was really tough. There was a period where I wasn’t being used very much, where they had opportunities to go certain directions with my character and didn’t, and it just wasn’t happening. So I kind of had an idea that something was gonna go down. I was very happy there and still had six more weeks of work after I knew I was leaving. Every day was one day closer to the end and it made me really sad. But I got a great story on the way out and was grateful to have it.”

All My Children Alum Finn Wittrock To Headline ‘Green Lantern’

From Pine Valley to the DC Universe! Now comes word that former All My Children star, Finn Wittrock (Ex-Damon Miller) will take on the role of Guy Gardner/Green Latern on the upcoming HBO Max series, Green Lantern from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Brothers Television.

According to Deadline who dropped the casting news, Wittrock’s Guy Gardner/Green Lantern is “a hulking mass of masculinity, and, as rendered in the comics, an embodiment of 1980s hyper-patriotism. And yet, Guy is somehow likable.”

In the premise of the series, Green Lantern reinvents the classic DC property through a story spanning decades and galaxies, beginning on Earth in 1941 with the very first Green Lantern, secretly gay FBI agent Alan Scott, and 1984, with cocky alpha male Guy Gardner (Wittrock) and half-alien Bree Jarta. They’ll be joined by a multitude of other Lanterns — from comic book favorites to never-before-seen heroes.”

Previously, Finn received Emmy nominations for his work on American Horror Story: Freak Show and for Versace: American Crime Story.

So what do you think of Finn’s new role? Comment below.
