Casting | Soap Opera Network
On Friday, September 18, when Soap Opera Digest reported on a casting call going out for the contract role of Alisha by CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful," fans of the daytime drama series began pondering if the show had plans to recast the role of Nicole (played by Reign Edwards) as the description for the character soundly awfully similar to that of the younger Avant sister. Thankfully, that doesn't seem to be the case.
Since departing "Days of our Lives" in 2007, actor Trevor Donovan (ex-Jeremy Horton) has gone on to add several roles onto his resume including appearing in episodes of The CW's "90210," ABC Family's "Melissa & Joey," and most recently starring in the History Channel mini-series, "Texas Rising." Now the actor has been cast as the lead in "The Man Who Wasn't," a potential TV series adaptation of the Thomas Caplan series of novels which follows the tales of former covert operative Ty Hunter, who unintentionally becomes the world's biggest movie star while maintaining a double life as a spy.
As previously reported, NBC's "Days of our Lives" began searching for a "legitimate" native Australian actor to portray the new 13-week minimum contract role of Finn, a doctor doing his residency in Salem, specifically looking to gain skills as a surgeon, under the guidance of Dr. Daniel Jonas (Shawn Christian). In partnership with Australia's Arena TV, a division of Foxtel, the daytime drama series announced today that it has narrowed its search down to three finalists: Sydney actor Alexander Bruszt, Sydney actor/musician Andrew Steel and Gold Coast actor Tom Dalzell, who is already Los Angeles based.

In the first major casting announcement under new head writers Dena Higley and Josh Griffith, who replaced Christopher Whitesell and Gary Tomlin last month, "Days of our Lives" is seeking to cast a legitimate Australian actor for the contract role of Finn, a "ruggedly handsome" Australian doctor who is doing his residency in Salem and will work under the stewardship of Doctor Daniel Jonas (Shawn Christian), reports the Australian Associated Press and TV Tonight.

“All My Children” makes its online debut this spring, and Prospect Park is pulling out all of the stops to make sure it’s a success. Several actors have tweeted that the new writing for the show is outstanding, and fans were happy to hear that some of their beloved actors — Eden Riegel (Bianca Montgomery), Alicia Minshew (Kendall Hart Slater) and Cady McClain (Dixie Cooney) — were headed back to the show. But could Josh Duhamel (Leo DuPres) be another familiar face headed back to Pine Valley?
If you’re a fan of scary movies, then you’ll no doubt recognize Tony Todd, who’s appeared in horror film classics like “Candyman,” “Final Destination,” and the 1990 remake of “Night of the Living Dead.” But the actor has recently decided to step out of the darkness and into daytime, beginning a role on “The Young and the Restless!”
