Fans of The Bold and the Beautiful have been curious on the latest casting call for the CBS daytime drama series.

According to Soap Opera Digest the show is looking to fill the contract role of “Alisha”.

So, just who is “Alisha”?  The latest updated casting breakdown says they are looking for an “18-21 year-old who is Hispanic or Middle Eastern, sexy, Midwestern, unsophisticated and beautiful. ”

This breakdown was updated from the original, which sounded a lot like a recast for Reign Edwards role as Nicole Avant.  B&B casting directors are now saying to not submit talent for the earlier casting call which read:  “African-American female, 18-21 years old who is described as: assertive, sexy, Midwestern, unsophisticated and beautiful.”

The role is set to begin to tape in October.  Put on your casting director hats!  Which young actress do you think fills the requirements for the role?  Who can bring  it to BOLD?  Anyone from primetime or daytime television you have liked in roles, previously?  Let us know in the comment section below!

The way that the description was written, something tells me that Reign Edwards will be replaced by a new actress. Who that new actress is, I have no idea as I do not know any African-American actresses in that age range to say the least. Any ideas ladies and gents?

Who cares? The character will be gone in a year anyway.

Did I miss something? Is Reign Edwards leaving the role? I do not see why that needs to happen.

Nothing is wrong with Reign. The actress is fine. The storyline is going nowhere though.

I think she appears too young…the kiss with Thomas was “uncomfortable” to me…

This casting notice is all over the place as Middle Eastern and Midwestern (in terms of generic actress look) are completely different!

I love how diverse the cast of B&B in terms of LGBT characters & the different ethnicities and nationalities on the show. You have the four full time African-American characters one being a transgender character and than obviously Ashleigh Brewer being the token Australian on the show and a new bisexual character coming on soon and now there is casting call for a Hispanic character. I love this. So long people complained about the lack of diversy and no LGBT characters. I’m glad that it seems like with this change it has killed all the gossip that Nicole was maybe… Read more »

Nancy Lee Grahn Debuted 25 Years Ago Today as General Hospital’s Alexis Davis

Back on September 26th, 1996, (25 years ago today!) the new character of Alexis Davis made her debut on ABC’s General Hospital, and brought to the iconic soap opera, the talents of Nancy Lee Grahn.

Grahn, had already made a name for herself with her captivating portrayal of lawyer Julia Wainwright Capwell on Santa Barbara for which she won a Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy in 1989, in a tie with AMC’s Debbi Morgan.

Back in April, General Hospital, marked this milestone with a special episode for Grahn, that could be remembered come next year’s Emmys.

Alexis, or shall we call her “Natasha”, was introduced on GH as the daughter of Mikkos Cassadine and his mistress, whose throat was slit by Helena Cassadine, which has played into Alexis’ story for many years to come.  At the time of her entrance to the show, Wendy Riche was GH’s executive producer.

Through the years, viewers have witnessed Grahn’s portrayal of: a tough legal eagle, an honest depiction of a woman battling the bottle, failed romances, while all the time being a loving and faithful mother to her three daughters, Sam, Molly, and Kristina.

Nancy won her second Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy, this time for her role as Alexis in 2012, and has been a multi-nominee in the Lead Actress category for her performances on the ABC daytime drama series.

Kate Grahn, Nancy’s daughter took to social media within the last few hours since we posted this story to share a video on how thankful she and her mom are to GH fans and Nancy’s time on the show which afforded her the ability to have and raise Kate.  Check that out below.

Here’s to Nancy for giving us 25 years of her on-screen work as Alexis!
