(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Miss New York Teen USA 2009 and former “All My Children” cast member Taylor Gildersleeve, joins the cast of “One Life to Live.”

The 18-year-old actress, who portrayed Sydney Harris on “AMC” in 2006, tweeted yesterday afternoon (January 19th) that she had just “just booked a role on ‘One Life to Live!!!’ :D

The exact role in which Gildersleeve was cast cannot be confirmed at this time, however, one possibility is “Hannah,” who is expected to interact with Starr and Cole.  A casting call for that role was issued back in mid-December.  Other possibilities could be “Leah,” a stripper friend of Stacy and Kim’s, or “Teen Jessica,” who will be appearing in flashback scenes.  Gildersleeve appears to have beaten out fellow actress Samii Ryan, who revealed earlier this month that she recently auditioned for an unidentified role on “One Life” as well, and was awaiting a callback from the soap.

In addition to winning the Miss New York Teen USA 2009 title, Gildersleeve competed in Miss Teen USA Pageant, but failed to make the finals.  A student at New York University, she has also appeared in an episode of “30 Rock.” 

SON will continue to follow this story and bring you more details as they develop.
