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!”

Interested to see John-Paul and Kevin back on your screens in Winterthorne? Let us know!

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!!! 🙂

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.

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

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

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.

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

DAYS Jackée Harry Joins Freeform Comedy Pilot ‘Everything’s Trash’ in Recurring Role

Jackée Harry is one busy actress in Hollywood!  On the heels of learning that Harry has signed on more full-time on Days of our Lives in her role as Paulina, comes this bit of casting news.

Harry will join the cast of the Freeform comedy pilot, Everything’s Trash along with another notable actor, George Wallace.  Both will have recurring roles in the show should it go to series.

In story, Everything’s Trash follows Phoebe (Phoebe Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood, since she doesn’t seem to have a clue. The series is inspired by Robinson’s book, “Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay.”

According to Variety, “Harry will star as Zora, Phoebe and Jayden’s mother. She and her husband are mid-Western transplants, but they have made a home in NY . They love and support their children equally, but truth be known, Zora acts (and dresses) younger than she is and straddles the line between “I’m my daughter’s mother” and “I’m my daughter’s best friend.”  Meanwhile, Wallace will play the role of Abraham, Phoebe and Jayden’s father and husband to Zora.

So, looking forward to hopefully seeing Jackée on a half-comedy sitcom at night, and doing her role on Days of our Lives? Comment below.

Victoria Konefal Will Be Back On Days of our Lives

This week Days of our Lives viewers saw the exit of both Theo (Cameron Johnson) and Ciara (Victoria Konefal), much to the chagrin of Cin fans everywhere! But hold on! Days head writer, Ron Carlivati revealed that Victoria Konefal will be back on-screen this summer on the NBC soap opera.

In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Carlivati revealed: “From the moment we were coming to that point and we knew Ciara was going to exit town with Theo, we were immediately pursuing the next chapter with Victoria: When would she be available or willing to come back, and when could we tell the next chapter because I knew that would feel unfinished and be unsatisfying to a lot of people. So that’s why I’m happy to announce here that Ciara is coming back and we are going to tell that next chapter of the story and hopefully, this time, the audience will get the payoff that they’re looking for and hoping for.”

And as to just how long will Konefal who chose to go on recurring status with the show be back for her summer run, Carlivati shared: “At this point, and I can’t speak for Victoria and I can’t speak for the show, and this is not an official announcement in any capacity, but I will say at this point, there is not an end date. We are working with Victoria to keep the story going and keep Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s love story alive.”

Cin fans should note that Carlivati added, “I would encourage the audience to remember that they (Cin) have an important anniversary coming up this summer that may figure into their story, so she will be back sooner than you know.”

So, happy to know there will be more of Ben and Ciara? Where you upset to see Ciara exit the canvas with Theo? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
