Llanview Casting Gossip: May 11 Edition

Tuesday, May 11, 2010 1:00 AM ET | By Scotty Gore

( — A new character is named from a chance encounter, some upcoming minor casting notes, several new auditions scripts and more, all in this edition of Llanview Casting Gossip.

“One Life to Live” fans can expect a new minor character named Virginia Burdett to come to Llanview in the near future, after the soap’s Executive Producer Frank Valentini met a woman with the same name while on vacation in Costa Rica recently.

According to the Charleston (West Virginia) Gazette, Burdett and her husband visited a national park while touring the Central American nation, along with four other people (one of which happened to be Valentini). While having lunch together, the group introduced themselves to one another, at which point Burdett expressed that she was a fan of “One Life to Live.”

“He asked me to write my name down and said I think I’ll name a judge after you,” Burdett tells the newspaper. On May 3rd she received an e-mail from Valentini, who told her that he was currently working on how the character would be introduced, and told her that the role may end up being a mass murderer instead of a judge. “If it’s a judge, I asked if he could say her law degree was from WVU,” Burdett responded.

The show is looking for a white woman who is in her mid to late 40′s for the character. The scene opens with her being portrayed as poor and unable to pay her mortgage. Her son “Tim” asks her how they will be able to pay their bills. Bonnie tells him that the economy is bad and she can’t find a job, but that he doesn’t need to worry about her problems. However, Tim remains concerned and reminds her that the bank is on the verge of taking their home. His mother tells him that she has faith they will get a miracle. Tim surprises her when he hands her a check for $55,000. Shocked, Bonnie asks her son if it is real and, if so, where did he get it. He tells her that he won the lottery the day he met “Cara,” and that he put some money on the date and won big. But Bonnie doesn’t believe him, saying that lottery tickets aren’t sold to minors, and they don’t hand them over free money either. As the scene ends, Bonnie asks Tim once again where he got the money.

Other recently released casting calls include “Emily,” “Saundra,” and “Chief Lynch.” While details of these scripts remain sketchy, SON will bring you more details as they develop.
