The very talented Karine Vanasse (Margaux LeMarchal) received some wonderful news in that she has been promoted to series regular for season four of the hit ABC primetime soap opera in the Hamptons, Revenge!

Deadline.com broke the story on Karine.  Since first appearing in the third season of Revenge back in September, Vanasse has been in a recurring role, however she has been in almost very episode! In story, the French Heiress Margaux LeMarchal has a past with the Graysons from growing up, and she returned to the the U.S. to start the American version of Voulez Magazine. In the romance department as of late, she has been quite cozy with Jack Porter played by Nick Wechsler!

As for the French-Canadian actress, viewers may remember her from the the period drama Pan Am! We sure do, we had the pleasure of meeting Karine and doing a video interview with her back then for Frontiers LA.

Revenge will be moving to the Sunday at 10PM slot, and a decision and confirmation of a season four is expected sometime in May, but it was important for the series producers to get Vanasse under contract now, before pilot season began!

Are you glad to hear Karine and her on-screen alter-ego, will be staying put on Revenge?  Let us know! And check out this interview with Karine from her days on Pan Am, after the jump!

Yes; I like her character…intelligent, honest, good for/with Jack. (Though now that Aidan’s seemingly not with Emily….I’m assuming Jack and Emily/Amanda willl fiind their way to each other.)

CW’s Batwoman TV Series Looking For Out Lesbian Actress To Play Title Role

In some intriguing casting news, the upcoming Batwoman series currently in development for The CW will feature TV’s first gay superhero character that is a series lead.

But on top of that, news today via TVLine has that the series is seeking an out lesbian actress to play the title role of Batwoman aka Kate Kane.  They are looking for an actress ages 25-29 of any ethnicity.

As to the log lines of the series, here’s what was released: “A wealthy socialite who calls Gotham home, Batwoman’s Kate Kane is described as ‘armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind,’ while physically she is a ‘highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence.’ But don’t call her a hero yet.  In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.”

Look for Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television to helm the development deal.  Caroline Dries, an out lesbian, will be the head writer. She is best known for her work on The Vampire Diaries.

Batwoman/ Kate Kane will be first seen this fall in a four-way crossover event between ArrowThe FlashSupergirl and Legends of Tomorrow with the goal for the character to land her own series.

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

An ABC rep told Soap Opera Digest that the role of Jordan is being recast.

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!
