Eakes joins the recently signed Ilene Kristen (“One Life to Live,” “Ryan’s Hope”), James DePaiva ( “OLTL”) and Tonja Walker (“OLTL”) to round out an all star cast of soap stars.
With filming scheduled to begin in and around New York City on Monday, July 29, “Tainted Dreams,” the new web series from the creative mind of “All My Children” supervising producer Sonia Blangiardo and provides a rare, realistic view behind the scenes of producing a daily scripted drama, has added three more daytime stars to its cast and they are all formerly of “One Life to Live.”
NYC BRAND PRODUCTIONS, which is producing the online series, has announced Ilene Kristen (ex-Roxy Balsom), James DePaiva (ex-Max Holden) and Tonja Walker (ex-Alex Alinov) have all signed on to the soap within a soap.
As part of the celebration of the launch of “Tainted Dreams’” new website, the online sudser is hosting a contest in which two lucky fans will be chosen to play extras on the show, which begins filming Monday, July 29 in and around New York City.
On the heels of the news that “Guiding Light” alum Grant Aleksander (ex-Phillip Spaulding) and “All My Children” alum Terri Ivens (Simone Torres) have joined the cast of the online drama series “Tainted Dreams” comes news that “General Hospital” alum Natalia Livingston (ex-Emily Bowen-Quartermaine; ex-Taylor Walker, “Days of our Lives”) has also joined the Internet sudser as Liza Park.
In an interview with Daytime Confidential, Terri Ivens (ex-Simone Torres, “All My Children”) revealed that she has joined the cast of the Sonia Blangiardo created online drama series “Tainted Dreams.”
“I play two characters. I play the soap character, Brittany, and then I play the actress playing Brittany, who is Cassandra. It should make for some very comedic moments, some deep or tangled webs. I don’t want to give storyline away, but I will say that from what I’ve been reading, the guy that plays my brother is my lover in real life,” Ivens previews. The online soap begins filming later this summer.
With word that “All My Children’s” Eden Riegel (Bianca Montgomery) was with child, you’d think that would be enough for the writing team of The OnLine Network’s popular anytime soap to handle (deciding whether to somehow write it in or to not, if even remotely possible), but now comes word that another actress is also with child!
The web series “Tainted Dreams” already has a long list of confirmed soap star talent, and now one more has been added to the roster: “Guiding Light” alum Grant Aleksander (ex-Phillip Spaulding)! The Maryland native, who also played “All My Children’s” Alec McIntyre, has signed on to play Adam Clark, the executive producer of “Painted Dreams,” the fictional show within the series.
WTNH, better known as ABC8 in Stamford, CT, recently toured the set of The OnLine Network’s “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” and got some inside scoop on what’s happening on your favorite internet dramas.
The soap segment included interviews with “AMC’s” Darnell Williams (Jesse Hubbard) and Vincent Irizarry (David Hayward) and “OLTL’s” Robert S. Woods (Bo Buchanan).
“Brooke English, one of our veteran characters on the show, has had a magazine called Tempo for many years and now sort of keeping with the online and new media, she is doing an online talk show,” said Jill Larson (Opal Cortlandt, “AMC”), who WTNH also interviewed, on new storylines hitting Pine Valley.
Susan Lucci’s Erica Kane was generally the glue that held “All My Children’s” Kendall Hart Slater (Alicia Minshew) and Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey) together, but this time, the two are teaming up solo! And if you’re a fan of either of the actors, who are known for their real-life silliness and humor that they rarely had the chance to show onscreen in Pine Valley, then you definitely don’t want to miss it.
