As the World Turns' Trent Dawson and former One Life to Live star Daphnee Duplaix are keeping themselves busy this summer and early fall by signing on for different stage projects. Beginning August 4, Duplaix will star in Layon Gray’s All-American Girls at the Actors Temple Theatre in NYC. In September Dawson will appear in Revival, a Project Y Theater production.
A source close to Daphnee Duplaix is saying the beautiful actress has been let go from One Life to Live, where she has been impressively portraying the role of Nora's (Hillary B. Smith) daughter Rachel since April 2009. Don't jump to the conclusion that this necessarily means curtains for Rachel's love interest Greg (Terrell Tilford), however. The word is, Greg may stick around Llanview to serve as the town's resident doctor-of-all-specialties. I don't know about y'all, but I am bummed to think about Duplaix leaving Llanview. I hope it wasn't that Chicken McNuggets commercial!
While watching BET last night, who did I see, but One Life to Live's Daphnee Duplaix (Rachel) bursting into song with some brutha about McDonald's Chicken McNuggets! Help me Holy Ghost. Check out the hilariously-cheestastic video above, while I drive on over to Mickey D's to see if that new sauce really is good enough to make me wanna get my R&B on! WATCH ONE LIFE TO LIVE!
According to the good people at Young, Black and Fabulous, One Life to Live star Daphnee Duplaix hit the New York City nightlife last night with other entertainers to participate in Strength Through Unity: A Haitian Benefit Relief. Duplaix, along with rapper/actor Ice -T, Cheryl "Salt" James and radio personality Angie Martinez, all came out to help raise aid for the earthquake victims in Haiti.
