Vivian Jovanni
"Days of our Lives" viewers were stunned, this week, when Bo (Peter Reckell) and Hope's (Kristian Alfonso) only daughter, Ciara (Vivian Jovanni) was raped at the hands of her step brother Chase (Jonathon McClendon). Sure, the young teen seemed a bit off and moody, but nobody suspected he could ever be capable of such violence, especially against someone he claimed to truly care about like Ciara. 
Michael Easton
While it's still uncertain as to who Michael Easton will be portraying when he returns to the "General Hospital" canvas in the coming weeks, the actor recently announced on his Facebook page that you'll soon be able to catch his new short-film, "Dreamliner," which reunites him with his former "One Life to Live" co-star Trevor St. John (ex-Todd Manning/ex-Victor Lord, JR). Easton wrote and directed the short.

Elizabeth Hendrickson
"The Young and the Restless" alum Elizabeth Hendrickson (ex-Chloe Mitchell; ex-Maggie Stone, "All My Children") has launched web series "30 Days Max." Billed as "a quirky unromantic comedy," it stars Hendrickson as a 30-something woman who begrudgingly resorts to a month of online dating to try and mend her broken heart. Will Max uphold the deal that she makes with herself by swiping right? Or is this new way of meeting men all wrong?
After a successful turn as Daniel Grayson on ABC's "Revenge," which ran for four seasons on the network, actor Josh Bowman is headed back to the alphabet as the lead in the Kevin Williamson drama pilot, "Time After Time," which tells the story of serial killer Jack the Ripper and his nemesis, H.G.

Billy Miller, Rebecca Herbst, Leslie Charleson
If you tuned into today's episode of ABC's "General Hospital," you probably took notice of a conversation Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst) and Jason Morgan (Billy Miller) had with Jason's mother, Dr. Monica Quartermaine (Leslie Charleson), over Jason and Elizabeth's son, Jake (James Nigbor), and the severity of his recent injuries. Monica suggested that their son's orthopedic care be moved from General Hospital in Port Charles to Shriners Hospitals for Children in Philadelphia. The transition to Shriners marks the second consecutive year in which Shriners Hospitals for Children has teamed up with the daytime drama series to raise awareness and support for the expert care it provides to kids. Last year, the soap told the story of Spencer Cassadine (Nicolas Bechtel), who was severely burned following a fire at Wyndemere. In story, Spencer was treated at the Boston location for Shriners Hospitals for Children.
