Casting new today out of Soap Opera Digest! This time it looks like The Bold and the Beautiful is once again beefing up their younger set with their search for a young actress to play the role of Alexandra Forrester!

About Alexandra, “She will be a Caucasian female, age 19-21 and is described as “Beautiful. Well Bred. Very Upscale and comes from money.”

Another Forrester is on the way to the canvas! So now the questions we pose to our very MF Soaps site visitors are; who would you cast in the role of Alexandra? What actress from daytime or primetime do you think fits the bill, the character description, and  is someone you would like to see on B&B? 

Share your thoughts on the comment section below! Remember to put your Casting Director hats on!

The description, like most soap casting calls, could be played by anyone. I’m assuming she’s a Forrester cousin.

Thorne’s daughter with Darla

That was Alexandria, although it could easily be changed when time came to film.

Technically you’re right, Mo.

Finally ! I have been waiting for this character for a long time. Hopefully this will also beef up Thorne’s presence as well.

At last. I don’t care who they get, as long as it means airtime for Thorne!!!

I highly doubt it once she visits Daddy in the basement then she will be thrown in with Hope and that bunch and we won’t see any relationship with them. Future storylines say Quinn/Rena Sofer is going to go after Eric. Only 25 yrs age difference. Brad Bell just will not write for Winsor Harmon.

25??? That’s generous, I was thinking about what it must be…Quinn was supposed to be young as a mother. Brooke is a good bit older than Quinn. I know these are rubberyfigures but it would have to be almost 35 years. Ah, life in soaps…

Bongo Rena Sofer is 44 and John McCook is 69. Like I said he just won’t write for Winsor Harmon but he never really has. Bringing him up from the basement to do this silly 2 week deal we all knew Shorty with an attitude was going to stay as President. Now when does he work?

I totally forgot Thorne has a daughter! The man needs a storyline!

Cast Camryn Grimes/Cassie please so she will get out of my poor Sharon’s head!

This is bullshit. They need older women on that show, not younger bimbos. The show is mouldering without Flannery and Conley at the helm.

Hear hear!!!!

Well it is about time– I have been against SORASing in the past, but since they already did Hope and the rest of them– it was only fair to get Thorne’s daughter into the act. Speaking of the Forresters what happened to Brooke’s youngest kids–RJ and Jack? I never hear them mentioned and with Brooke spending time with Bill just wondering where she put those two boys.

k/kay
k/kay

With Ridge and Nick gone they will never be mentioned again. I saw a movie the other day with Jennifer Finnagan/Bridget who won three emmys her career has really done well, then you watch KKL on B&B and she is doing the same old thing still laying on her back oh well it’s a paycheck but I am thinking the character has never grown.

Looks like The Forresters are moving front and center as they should be…. Glad to see Thorne is getting more airtime and looks like sparks are about to fly at FC….

Someone who will make us forget Hope!!! How about Crystal Hunt??

SteamySteffyfan
SteamySteffyfan

Lol Someone so we can get rid of Hope she could kill someone with how boring her character is and now the writers have gone as far as trying make her act like a Steffy imposter it’s not working it never will. Jacqueline MacInnes Wood has exceptional talent and only she can be Steffy Spencer it is time to send Hope to Forrestor International or the basement never to be seen again. I think Crystal Hunt would be perfect as Ally Forrestor and it’s time to go. HOPE LOGAN !!!

Johnny

You guys…Crystal Hunt is like 30. I know that ages of performers are rarely the same as the character…but lets get a believable young girl into this role.

Kirsten Storm would be a good Ally

Mark Y

The big news here is that fans want to see more Thorne!

Unless she can sleep with Brooke, her storyline will never take off. Sorry, that’s just how Bell writes.

LMAO. How true…how very very true.

Too funny!

She probablly wouldn’t do it but Leighton Meester would be a very good choice!

or Melissa Fumero!

Jay

She is not available, she’s on FOX’s new show Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Erica

I like Kristen Prout from The Lying Game

Or Natalie Hall

She may be too old for the role, but I would love to see Farah Fath (Gigi Morasco, OLTL) in the role

Char description for alex forrester is really lame. It’s the same old description for pretty much every leading young lady from core families that are white. Rich. well bred. classy. Yawn. Can’t she be a blonde ditz like her mother darla who was ran over by tay? And what’s w/ casting alex when taylor’s off b&b? Taylor is b&b. There won’t be any conflict for alex. Can’t they describe alex as this shallow and elitist airhead who only cares abt trends and popularity? That’s how most fashionistas are. Char description is like pre psycho caroline. Irrelevant b&b stays irrelevant w/ these casting calls!

Bongo

Like abby newman!

Emma Roberts as Alexandra Forrester, with a change in head writer to Bridget Dobson!

sue

Emme Rylan played Abby on Y&R, you would have to steal her from another soap, she would be perfect. I would like to see Sharon Case go to BB, Y&R is writing awful stories for her. She could be Brooke’s twin sister.

heidi
heidi

How about Julie Marie Berman!

richard

I have been waiting for them to cast this role forever!! But odd timing with Taylor not on the canvas, but if it beefs up Thorne’s story, I’m all for it!!! I wouldn’t. Mind seeing a fresh new face in daytime, as when they cast Steffy and Hope, those were excellent casting choices, but I am def assuming Alexandra will be a blonde bombshell, so we could do Julie Berman(ex-LuLu, GH), Emme Rylan would be perfect as well. Whoever they cast, they have to make sure she has that rivalry chemistry with Hope, JMW and Kim Matula were dynamite with that and that will be hard to duplicate!!!!!!

heidi

How about Emma Roberts?

Bonnie Greenblatt

I would cast as Alexandria.
Marcy Rylan or Hunter King

Wish she was old enough to offsett the love triangle among Liam, Hope, and Wyatt. I will give a chance. Did not care for debut.

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”

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!

Lauralee Bell On Her 35th Anniversary With Y&R: “My Hope For Cricket Is To Smile The Way She Used To & Chill Whenever Possible.”

Congratulations are in order this Sunday to Lauralee Bell who is celebrating her 35th anniversary with The Young and the Restless.  Hard to believe, it’s been 35 years since the perils of a young Cricket became front and center and those young love stories with Danny (Michael Damian), Phillip (Thom Bierdz) and eventually, Paul ( Doug Davidson).

As Cricket matured, so to was the decision to now call the character by her birth name, Christine.  After all, she became quite the legal eagle! For over three and a half decades with time-off in between, Lauralee has shared memorable storylines with the amazing Tricia Cast, and the late Jeanne Cooper as Nina and Katherine, and let’s not forget Michael Baldwin, played by Christian LeBlanc, to name just a few/

In a few tweets on Sunday, Lauralee acknowledged the day stating: “We all couldn’t do what we love to do without the viewers so thanks to them!”  She followed that up with a tweet filled with photos of herself and her co-stars throughout the years ,and some self-effacing humor stating: “Wasn’t going to post for YR anniversary, because I’m not one to put attention on me but no denying these people have made my life better. Thanks to crew & fans and my hope for Cricket is to smile the way she used to & chill whenever possible”

As viewers know, Lauralee is the daughter of Y&R creators, the late, great Bill Bell and his wife, Lee Phillip Bell.  We are sure Bill is smiling today for Lauralee and proud of this accomplishment.

Share your congrats for Lauralee on this milestone via the comment section below.  Then let us know your most memorable or favorite Cricket/Christine moment on the CBS Daytime drama series.

GH’s Vinessa Antoine Lands Primetime Series Will Make Canadian TV History!

Fantastic news for General Hospital favorite, Vinessa Antoine (Jordan)! The talented actress had landed the leading role in the primetime Canadian series, Diggstown!

The legal drama is scheduled to air this fall.  In Diggstown, Antoine will play Marcie Diggs, a top corporate lawyer who decides to dedicate herself to a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

This casting news will make Vinessa a part of Canadian TV history as the first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.

Antoine spoke to the Toronto Star about her starring role, “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system. And when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of color, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.”

However as suspected, and according to the Toronto Star: “General Hospital fans will not be happy to learn that Antoine, who has been with the show since 2014, will no longer be a series regular when she starts shooting Diggstown in August.”

So, excited to hear Vinessa has been cast in a leading primetime series?  Comment below!
