Final casting announcements were made today for the upcoming digital series Winterthorne!  One Life to Live alum John-Paul Lavoisier  (Ex-Rex) and Days of our Lives alum Kevin Spirtas (Ex-Craig) have joined the star-studded line-up.

Lavoisier has been cast as Hugh Cambridge, a handsome and mysterious man from Miranda’s (lead actress Martha Madison) past. Hugh is hell bent on becoming a member of the Winterthorne family and Miranda has severely underestimated his intent to seduce her.

“John-Paul has a great edgy quality that I wanted for the character of Hugh,” explains  series creator and Emmy-nominee, Michael Caruso, “John-Paul is fantastic at creating subtle, smoldering layers with his acting that will build into something dangerous within the character.”

“I’m so happy to be working with my old friend, the very talented John-Paul,” adds Emmy-nominated director Sonia Blangiardo, Winterthorne will exceed expectations with him involved as a part of this amazing cast.”

Kevin Spirtas has been tapped to play Dominic Delacort in the new online series, Winterthorne. The character is described as a major player within the family. He has been charged by the Winterthorne women to train their husbands and future husbands in the art of making candy. There is a sense of wonder within him alongside a sense of
true bitterness for being controlled by them.

“Kevin is a wonderful actor,” says series creator and Emmy-nominee, Michael Caruso, “And I think what struck me about him as perfect for the part of Dominic is the sense of mischievousness he possesses.

Dominic is a character that has been put in a very specific position of power by the Winterthorne women, and yet he’s powerless at the same time and we really see him struggle with that.”

“Kevin is not only a delightful person, but an incredibly talented actor,” adds series star  Martha Madison, “I loved watching him play the devious character of Craig Wesley on Days! He made it fun to root for the bad guy!”

Very cool. I really would love to see Kevin Spirtas and Patrika Darbo (Nancy and Craig), return to DAYS with Chloe. I loved when they were on the show.

I would love to see John-Paul Lavoisier, resume the role of Lucky Spencer on General Hospital, or join DAYS OF OUR LIVES as a new love interest for Theresa, Abby, Nicole, or Paul!!! 🙂

I think he’d make a better Eric Brady…or as Hope’s son Shawn D???

The cast keeps getting better and better! This show is shaping up to rival any network or cable channel shows. I love John and Kevin, their work have always been top notch. This series can’t come soon enough.

Winterthorne is the web series to watch as it evolves. It has all the right elements to take the web series genre to the next level.

When will one of the TV soaps pick up JP. His unique energy is missed.

Honestly, there aren’t enough soaps on air to hire every former soap star.

I have always had a weakness for John-Paul. He makes any character he plays come to life….he is that good. He is a multi-dimensional actor and always, always adds his own spin to any role given him.
I am so ecstatic to see him again ….on any screen. He has been invisible for too long. The best to you, John-Paul.

He would make a better Eric Brady…or Hope’s son Shawn D. or as Jens nephew Jeremy Horton or GHs Dillion Quartermaine, Tracy’s other son???

CeeCee
CeeCee

Oh, yes, Jimh. I would love for John-Paul to replace the role of Brady. I know, at least, J-P would not go around moping, looking for love wherever he can get it.

Jeremy
Jeremy

Yeah, I thought JP would make a great Dillion Quartermaine, too.
Or even better, Lucky Spencer. I could see JP also as Shawn D, but not Eric Brady, I wouldn’t want JP to play Eric, the writers have really ruined Eric in my opinion.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Oops,, jimh. I guess I goofed. After re-reading, I realized it was Eric, the holier than thou ex priest, whom you meant. Well, as I said, J-P can play any role….either Eric or Brady. Wouldn’t it be grand if he actually did?

I love John Paul’s acting style. He has great comedic timing.

I had forgotten about that comedic trait abou J-P, Lou. You are right, of course. He’s just a great actor all around.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Gabi’s Revenge Plot Begins To Unfold; Watch Out Abigail and Stefan!

Evil Gabi is back on Days of our Lives, and that means some great material for Camila Banus (Gabi) to sink her teeth into. After all, who doesn’t love a Gabi scorned?!  This week, viewers already learned that Gabi has already switched the paternity results to make it look as if Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of Abigail’s (Marci Miller) unborn child, when it is really Chad’s (Billy Flynn).  To top it off, she is manipulating and “advising” Gabi on what to do about her paternity secret

On Tuesday’s episode while in the park, Gabi reflects on changing the paternity results and says out loud to herself: “Karma is a bitch. Since you and Stefan ruined my life …” but she stops talking when all of a sudden Stefan appears.  He wants to talk about “Gabi Chic”, and their mutual business interests, but she’s not having it one bit!

She blasts him and his fictitious girlfriend “Gabby” for framing her for murder, and all that has transpired in her life since then including: being beaten up in prison, which has left her unable to have any more children, due to a surgery and an infection she developed while in the slammer for a crime she did not commit.

Gabi says she is not like her ‘Madre.”  She believes in revenge and that people like him deserve to be punished, and that she wants to see him suffer like she has. Stefan is hoping that Gabi will eventually trust him, put the past behind them, and work together.  Stefan exits and once alone, a vengeful Gabi says:  “You and your little whore, Gabby, took something from me that’s precious. Now it’s my turn to take something from you.”

Then to put an exclamation point on her revenge plot, Gabi grins that “all hell will break loose.”

Are you glad to see Gabi back with an edge as she plans to make Abigail and Stefan’s life a living hell? What do you think will be the next move in her master plot? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS Preview – Week of July 16, 2018

This week on Days of our Lives, hell hath no fury like a Gabi (Camila Banus) scorned!  Now out for revenge after receiving devastating news that she can never conceive another child, Gabi has switched the DNA results to make it appear to Abigail (Marci Miller) that Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of her unborn baby.

How far will Gabi continue to sink to carry out this lie and to give payback to Stefan and Abigail as her alter “Gabby” for sending her to prison for a crime she did not commit? Is her former lover, Chad (Billy Flynn) collateral damage in all of this?

Meanwhile, Brady (Eric Martsolf) prepares to say goodbye to his son, Tate after losing custody of his son when the judge rules in Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) favor, but will fate intervene, allowing Brady to keep his son after all?

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ben Fights Off His “Killer” Instincts As Rob Scott Wilson Delivers Power Performance Of The Week

In Days of our Lives’ version of Beauty and the Beast, in this case Ciara (Victoria Konefal) is the ‘beauty’ and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) is the ‘beast’ she is to tame, last Thursday and Friday’s episodes illustrated to us where this duo could be heading in the future.

But first things, first.  The situation took a horrifying turn for Ciara, and for Ben, when he runs into the cabin beside himself!  He informs Ciara he went to the pharmacy to get his prescription but the police have swarmed the place.  Getting more and more agitated, Ben tells Ciara, he blames her, and her mother, Hope (Kristian Alfonso) for putting an APB out on him!  Ciara says she didn’t say anything to her mother.   But, Ben is losing his grip on reality fast and he desperately needs his meds.  He’s on edge and begs her not to call Hope, as he can’t go back to the sanitarium.  Ciara tries to calm Ben down and insists that she won’t to that to him, but suddenly, he becomes more unglued and stomps on her cell phone!

Next, Ben is hallucinating thinking he has handcuffed Ciara to the bed – the same thing he did to Abigail!   He sees Ciara in the handcuffs.  Ciara tells him she is not in them and to look at her hands.  All of a sudden, as she tells him she is on his side, and will help him through this, he calls her, “a lying little whore, just like the rest of them.”  Ben thinks she believes he is a ‘killer’ like everyone else, because she has now grabbed a knife to defend herself.

Ben tells Ciara that maybe he hasn’t changed at all, he is a serial killer, and now that he is off his meds he sees things very clearly. Ciara tries to calm him down and assure him everything will be OK.  When he closes his eyes and then opens them, he still sees that Ciara is handcuffed to the bed.  Crawling more and more out of his skin, Ben begins to hear his father, Clyde saying, “She’s lying to you, boy …trying to fool you … the same as that slut Abigail.”

Now, Ben hallucinates that Clyde (James Read) is in the cabin, egging him on to strangle Ciara, red necktie and all!  As Ben fights off his father’s attempts to make him do heinous things to Ciara, (he even hears Clyde telling him to burn down the cabin), yielding a knife Ciara calms Ben down saying Clyde is not really there.  Ben admits he doesn’t know what’s real anymore.  Ciara puts her knife down and offers her hand to hold on to. Ben takes Ciara’s hand and sits down as Clyde’s image fades away.  Ciara begs Ben to run to the pharmacy to get his meds. She promises she will not use her phone.  Ben exits.

However on Cliffhanger Friday, Ciara is engulfed in flames in the cabin, with no Ben to be found, and Rafe (Galen Gering) getting a signal from her cell directing him and Hope on a collision course with Ciara and Ben.

Throughout the two episodes of Ben’s battle with his sanity and how he is haunted by what he has done to others, and vacillating. between reality and delusional, Rob Scott Wilson illustrated once again, that given the material that his performances of Ben are mesmerizing. Wilson’s scenes make you stop whatever you may be doing, and take notice.  That is why Rob is our pick for the “Power Performance of the Week.”

So, what did you think of Rob’s performance?  What did you think of what happened in the cabin between Ben and Ciara? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
