The Young and the Restless Casting Nerdy/Cyber Life Gal, Somewhat Socially Awkward Who Will Blossom!

Doesn’t this headline sound a bit familiar?  On the surface it’s a tried and true soap opera formula; think DAYS Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) AKA Ghoul Girl, or GH’s version of Ugly Betty, Sabrina Santiago (Teresa Castillo), and others over time.   Now whether or not this character falls anywhere near that pattern remains to be seen.

However, according to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, the number one soap opera has put out a casting call for the role of Ilsa.

The part is said to be recurring and the series is looking for an actress in her 20’s. The casting breakdown read as follows:  A native of Sweeden (or perhaps Denmark or Switzerland) who was raised in the U.S. and has no accent.  She is is described as, “A genius child prodigy.”  Ilsa is pretty, but her passion for the nerdy cyber life/work has left her a tad socially awkward and a little quirky- however Ilsa will blossom.

So put on your casting director hats and let us know who do you think fits the bill?  What actress from daytime or primetime would you like to see on Y&R? After reading the character description, what story and with whom do you think “Ilsa” might find herself involved in within Genoa City?  Share your thoughts below!

A representative from the Nordic countries! 🙂
God kveld! ja! som er en god en sum Norsk ..lol

A Hindi girl would be much better as a ”nerdy/cyber like gal, somewhat socially awkward who will blossom!”’ /

And, beautiful, Su. I wouldn’t mind having Florencia Lozano on Y&R or GH, either. The three of them were so good together on OLTL.
Su. You confuse me. Are you acting coy on purpose….adding a little mystery, eh?
So are you part Nordic and part Indian? Are you part Viking as I? Lol.

All the newbies under Pratt & Phelps have stunk to high Heaven – this will not be an exception – they can’t get a grasp on the ‘newbies’ they created!!

WOW, how progressive! I hope its a ruse and its a recast of SUMMER!

I would be so happy with a Summer recast! I have a feeling she will not be going any where since she is a friend of JFP.

I think Eric Braeden is fond of her, as well. HE has a lot of say on that soap!

Nikki

Oh my gosh I would love a recast of Summer but remember there is suppose to be a big Halloween party and 4 people die. I’m thinking Joe”who is never on anymore”,, Marissa,her husband and hopefully Summer. What do you think?

I’m so excited that another new character is being introduced. That will be WAY better than giving Eileen Davidson a real storyline…

Well we know now that Adam cannot stop Paragon so this little sweetie will be brought to Genoa City to solve Victor’s cyber issues AND Grandpa Mustache will play match maker with her and his grandson, Noah. She is a geeky nerd who is very clumsy and awkward and Noah doesnt even notice her. Victor pushes them together in hopes that it will divert Noah’s attention away fro Marissa! There, it took me less than five minutes, check please!

Mo

This kinda sounds like Gwen. When Hilary picked her to be Devon’s beard she was apparently nerdy, but cleaned up good.

When will soaps learn? We don’t need/want new characters. Write good stories for the ones you have already!

Soooo basically a female version of Spinelli?

Katelyn MacMullen Celebrates 1 Year Anniversary On GH; Now, What Will Happen When Willow Finds Out The Truth About Wiley?

Since Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) first appeared on the General Hospital canvas as the school teacher who needed to let Charlotte’s (Scarlett Fernandez) parents (Valentin, Nina and Lulu) know of her bullying tactic sat school, the character has become quite intertwined to others in Port Charles.

We eventually learned that Willow shared a dark past with the late Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), and even had his child, but never told him about it.  Later, Willow seem to get the attention of two young gentlemen; Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and Harrison Chase (Josh Swickard).

As of now, Chase and Willow look to be quite the happy couple.  But, what will happen when Willow learns the devastating truth- that the little boy she gave up -that is being raised by Brad (Parry Shen) and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) isn’t really hers.  In fact, her son died when Brad took Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) baby to replace the baby that died.

In a post on her Instagram, Katelyn MacMullen shared that it’s hard to believe a year has past since her debut on the ABC soap opera expressing gratitude: “It’s been a year since I’ve joined this incredible cast! I love this show so much, and every single person involved. I’m so grateful 🖤 It’s been a pretty crazy ride for Willow so far, and I’ve enjoyed every second of it 🌚 Thank you @generalhospitalabc !! 🙏 #GH #oneyearanniversary”

Chloe Lanier’s New Short Film ‘The Reveal’ Releases First Trailer

As previously reported, Chloe Lanier, the actress who plays naughty Nelle Benson on ABC’s General Hospital, has been busy at work on a special project. And while Nelle is upset having just been denied parole on the ABC soap opera, (something tells us nothing will stop her from getting out of the slammer), Lanier on the other hand has been very excited about her new short film, The Reveal.

The Reveal in which Lanier stars, co-wrote, and co-directed along with her boyfriend, Kevan McClellan also has some very familiar faces along for the ride from Port Charles and Genoa City. That’s because Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Josh Swickard (Chase, GH) are also part of the film.

The action takes place at a gender reveal party for a baby, and according to the loglines of the short: “Zoe and James are a young couple attending their new-age friends gender reveal party. As they attempt to find their place amongst the eclectic group of party guests and friends, unsung wishes and hidden resentments begin to surface within their relationship.”

Watch the trailer from Lanier below.

Then, let us know if you are intrigued to see the short film when its out via the comment section below.

WATCH: Jonathan Jackson + Enation’s New Music Video “The Days Are Evil”

Five-time Daytime Emmy winner from General Hospital, and former Nashville star, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky, Ex-Avery) has released a new music video for the new single “The Days Are Evil” along with his band Enation.

The music video features shots of Jackson in a very dark incarnation, and the track will also appear on Jackson + Enation’s upcoming album due out later this fall, Ultraviolet Empire.

Jonathan says of the new album: “Our new album, Ultraviolet Empire, is a throwback record. It’s a record we played together live in the studio. Most of the songs are one take -just letting the band play.  It was amazing playing with our co-producer Colin Linden and capturing something so raw and visceral.”

This will be the band’s follow-up to their 2017 album  Anthems for the Apocalypse and their successful 2018 tour in Europe opening for Echo & The Bunnymen,

Check out the music video featuring Jonathan released this week below.

Then, let us know, should Lucky return to Port Charles for the Nurses’ Ball with his band and play a tune off the new album next spring? Will Jonathan come home to GH for a guest appearance? Will you be checking out the new music from him in the coming months? Comment below.
