‘OLTL’ June Minor Casting Notes
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Some Llanview casting odd and ends and comings and goings for the month of June.
With David Fumero (Cristian Vega) on his way out of Llanview, rumors are swirling that his former onscreen co-star and reel life brother Kamar de los Reyes (Antonio Vega) and niece Jamie Vega (Saoirse Scott) may return for a brief visit. The speculation was fueled in part due to this picture of the 10-year-old Scott posing “on the set of ‘OLTL'” with Shenell Edmonds (Destiny). However, according to Scott’s official website, she attended a couple of fan events last fall with Edmonds and several of her former “One Life” co-stars (and apparently also visited with some of them at the studio), which might help explain the photo, especially since both Scott and Edmonds are wearing coats in the image. Furthermore, de los Reyes has remained silent on the issue on his Twitter page.
Speaking of Edmonds, with Destiny possibly pregnant with Matthew’s (Eddie Alderson) baby, there is some talk her father (whom she grew up thinking was actually her big brother) Greg Evans (Terrell Tilford) returning to Llanview. Tilford noted in a recent interview that “I’d love to make a final appearance before it goes off, especially considering some of the stuff coming up story-wise with my little sister and all that. We’re talking about making it happen, so we’ll see.”
Look for Nigel (Peter Bartlett), armed with reinforcements, to give the Buchanan Mansion’s new occupants some very unexpected news on Tuesday, June 28. Even from his hospital bed, Clint (Jerry verDorn) remains as shrewd as ever.
Kearran Giovanni is back as Dr. Vivian Wright. Sean Ringgold (Shaun) posted a pic of the two of them, along with Shenell Edmonds (Destiny) getting ready to tape some scenes last Friday.
Flint Beverage exits the role of Agent Kent, the man who was guarding the “Man with the Scar” (Roger Howarth) at the top secret facility, on Monday, June 20, when the man with Todd’s old face turns the tables on him at La Boulaie.

Although the name of the actress cast in the recurring role of Ionia, who plays Dorian Lord (Robin Strasser) in David Vickers Buchanan’s (Tuc Watkins) autopic “Vicker Man” remains unknown, look for the character to first appear later this month. After making a deal with a vengeful Echo (Kim Zimmer), the aspiring actress tries to stir up some trouble for the newlyweds.
It looks as if Susan Haskell‘s final appearance on the show as Marty was on June 6. In the same episode, Esau Pritchett played Agent Wayne, the man on the plane that escorted the unseen Patrick Thornhart back to Llanview to reunite with his lady love.
When David Aaron Baker debuts as the father of Brad (Jack’s sidekick) on Friday, June 24, he will be given a last name — Konzinski.

Sean J. Cullen has returned as Jessica’s therapist Dr. Edward Levin.
