(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — “One Life to Live” releases a new audition script for teenage versions of two of the soap’s most popular characters, Jessica Buchanan and Cristian Vega.

In an update to a story we first brought you yesterday, SON can now give you more insight into the contents of the script, which was released last Friday.

The scene begins with teen Jessica telling teen Cristian that he doesn’t look or act like the group of jocks he has been hanging around with. Cris responds that the only thing that he really has in common with them is that he is good at soccer. Jessica tells him that she hasn’t seen much of him lately, and asks Cris if he has been avoiding her. He states that he has been dodging her, but it’s not because he doesn’t like her. Instead he tells her that he wants to see her more often, but thinks that they have about as much in common as he and his teammates do. Jessica asks Cristian if he thinks it’s because he’s from Angel Square, to which he responds yes, and because she lives in a house that has a name. He goes on to say that her mother is the richest woman in Llanview, while his mom is only a rich woman’s maid, not to mention the fact that his brother is currently in jail. Jessica fires back that, just because her family is wealthy, it does not mean that they do not have their share of problems. Being sarcastic, Cristian is like what, did the chauffeur took the day off? Jessica replies that her parents are divorced and that her mother is very ill. Cris apologizes and offers his condolences. As the scene ends, Jessica confesses that they have more in common than he wants to admit. Cris says he it’s time to go to work.

The scene appears to be in a flashback had by Jessica and/or Cristian, and should air sometime this spring. SON will keep you posted.

‘OLTL’ Mid-January Casting Notes

Monday, January 17, 2010 1:21 AM ET | By Scotty Gore

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — The latest comings and going for “One Life to Live.”

Late last week the soap issued another casting call, this time for the roles of “young Jessica” and “young Cristian.”  Details are sketchy but apparently, Cristian and/or Jessica flashback to their childhoods.  Jessica mentions that her mom [Viki] is very ill.  She has the feeling that there is something else she should remember, however she is unable to recall what it is.  SON will keep you updated.

Mike Emery has returned to “One Life.”  Last November, the actor portrayed one of the Seattle cops that arrested former cult leader Mitch Laurence.  This go around, Emery will portray an EMT.  Although an airdate for his scenes (which were taped on January 13th) has not been announced, they are expected to air sometime in late February or early March.  Wonder which Llanview resident will be in need of medical attention this time?

First airdates have been announced for Melissa Fumero (Adriana) and Laura Bonarrigo (Cassie), both of whom recently inked deals with the sudser to reprise their roles for a handful of episodes.  According to ABC Soaps in Depth, Fumero will first appear on February 12th, the same day as her on-screen cousin Kelly (Gina Tognoni).  Meanwhile, Bonarrigo is set return on February 15th.  It remains to be seen exactly when Dan Gauthier will return as Kevin Buchanan.

Look for more dayplayer roles on February 16th and 26th.

Film and Irish theatre star, and “One Life” alum, Donal Donnelly passed away on January 4th, at the age of 78, following a bout with cancer.  Ardant soap fans may remember Donnelly for his late 1980s stint in Llanview as Lord Henry Leighton, the father of Roma Downey‘s character Lady Joanna (during the Patrick London/Bo Buchanan storyline).  Donnelly is also known for his roles in “The Dead” and “The Godfather Part III.”

“OLTL” Supervising Music Producer Paul S. Glass tweets that the song playing in the background of the January 8th episode as Gigi walks out of the diner after her talk with Rex, “is called ‘Only In My Dreams’…an ABC original so unfortunately not available. sorry…”

And, if you thought Mayor Dorian Cramer Lord’s assistant James looked familiar, you were right.  Portraying the recurring role of James is Andrew Ridings, best known for briefly portraying J.R. Chandler on “All My Children” in 2003.  Ridings also portrayed John in the 2007 film “Hearts Unarmored,” and has various art director and sound crew credits on his resume.
