“Days of our Lives’” alum Eric Winter (ex-Rex DiMera) may spend a lot of his time filming Lifetime’s “Witches of East End,” but when he and his wife, Rosalyn Sanchez (“Devious Maids”), heard about a new venture their friend, George Valencia, was starting with Judy Reyes (“Devious Maids”), they had to sign up. The project? An animated children’s show called “La Golda,” which features an 8-year-old orphan with two passions: soccer and building a better world for kids.
“Witches of East End,” which was inspired by Melissa de la Cruz’s best-selling novel, has a launch date! Lifetime announced today that the new witching hour of drama is coming to a TV screen near you beginning Sunday, October 6 at 10:00 PM ET/PT. The series stars Julia Ormond (Temple Grandin, Mad Men), Mädchen Amick (“Mad Men,” “Damages”), Jenna Dewan Tatum (“American Horror Story”) and Rachel Boston (“In Plain Sight”) as a family of witches living in the secluded seaside town of East Haven. The new series also stars Eric Winter (“The Mentalist,” “Days of our Lives”), Daniel DiTomasso (CSI), Jason George (“Grey’s Anatomy,” “Sunset Beach”) and Oscar and Golden Globe Award nominee Virginia Madsen (“Sideways,” ”Anna Nicole”).
“Days of our Lives” Eric Winter (ex-Rex DiMera) may have left Salem, but now he’s got some serious witches to deal with: He’s been cast as a series regular on Lifetime’s “Witches of East End!”
Say what you will about “Days of our Lives’” Nancy Wesley, but she is definitely a character fans just love to hate. The same can’t be said of her portrayer, Patrika Darbo, who is loved, loved, loved all around for her humor, candidness and ability to play one of daytime’s baddest bitches!
“It is the best character to play,” raves Darbo of Chloe Lane’s mom, a role she originated back in 1998. “Every day, I thank goodness [for] the fact that I get to play this role that they created for me, and that they have kept her coming back.”
