Calling all One Life to Live fans! John-Paul Lavoisier’s sports a new look for the character he plays in the upcoming web series Winterthorne!

The  online soap opera coming in late August from creator Michael Caruso will feature JP in the role of Hugh! Caruso filled On-Air On-Soaps in on a bit of the back-story of the character:  “In the Winterthorne family things are run a little differently. The women choose their husbands, not the other way around. They are basically raised to be what the Winterthorne women will want. Hugh is one of those men, He’s handsome and he knows it, and everyone affiliated with the family always assumed that Miranda (Martha Madison) would choose him.”

Caruso said of working with the talented One Life fan favorite who for eight years played Rex Balsom:  “JP was fantastic because he could have played a very one dimensional character, but I really think that audiences will feel for him.  His character is not a “bad guy” in the traditional sense.  We were all blown away on set by JP.  He’s  hilarious and he’s up for anything.  He’s a very dynamic actor. You can see the wheels turning in his head as the character, and the choices he makes are fascinating to watch. Sonia (our director) had worked with him on OLTL and had nothing but amazing things to say about him and he was someone that I had wanted to work with very early on in the casting process. He was perfect for the role.”

Why hasn’t a soap grabbed him yet?

He was so likeable on OLTL.

Why??? Because there are too many unemployed soaps actors who are just as talented as he. With only 4 soaps left, soap roles are slim to none.

Jeremy

@ Rob – I’d love to see JPL on DAYS or GH. He could be the new Sean D on DAYS or new Lucky on GH. Food for thought.
