(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Has “All My Children” cast the beautiful girl that will steal Dre’s heart?
Angie (Debbie Morgan) and ex-husband Jacob’s (Darnell Williams) adopted daughter, Cassandra Foster, arrives in Pine Valley on Friday, April 25. The character of Cassandra debuted on the cancelled ABC soap opera “The City” and will now show up on ABC’s “All My Children” played by “America’s Next Top Model” Season 3 runner-up Yaya DaCosta.
DaCosta, a Brown University graduate, was born on November 15, 1982 in Harlem, New York. Since her time on “ANTM” the Ford Model has appeared in several music videos including Kanye West’s “Gold Digger,” and Sean Kingston’s “Beautiful Girls.” DaCosta’s acting credits include a starring role in the motion picture “Take The Lead” which co-starred Antonio Banderas. The actress earned a Teen Choice Awards nomination for her work in the movie.
Expect DaCosta’s Cassandra to be thrown right into loads of drama as soon as she steps foot in town. Along with adjusting to her mother’s not-so-new boyfriend Jesse (Darnell Williams) and his striking resemblence to Jacob, ABC reports that Cassandra “will be pulled into the sinister plan Rob (David Rasche) has for Jesse.” Expectations are that Cassandra will be romantically linked to Dre Woods, played by the very handsome and underutilized Sterling Sulieman.
