(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — According to reports, “One Life to Live” has tapped musician and Broadway star Meghann Fahy as Hannah.
SON is working to confirm that Fahy has landed the new role, which is supposed to cause some friction between Starr and Cole, and is described as an honor student and cheerleader at Llanview University. For more details on the Hannah audition script, click here.
The 19-year-old Fahy made her Broadway debut last spring as an understudy for the character of Natalie in the play “Next to Normal.” She has also appeared on “Gossip Girl,” and has released two albums.
