The Secret Circle
With the series finales of All My Children and One Life To Live nearing, many are wondering what will happen to the talented casts of both soaps. TVLine has created a fun content piece, "dreamcasting" the thesps onto primetime shows. According to them, OLTL's Eddie Alderson should be sent over to the CW's highly-anticipated The Secret Circle.
Alderson is one of the strongest young actors on daytime TV today, so why not let him work his magic -- so to speak -- on The CW's buzzy new series (premiering Thursday, Sept. 15)? We would love to watch Alderson come to terms with his witchy ways as the little brother of one of the New Salem coven's leading ladies. There's a slight Britt Robertson resemblance there, no?
Alexandra Chando is one busy starlet. Her ABC Family soap The Lying Game premieres Aug. 15, but in the meantime you can catch her in Talent, the As The World Turns alum's second webisoap!
Based on the novel series by the same name from Zoey Dean (Privileged), Talent follows the lives of aspiring rock goddess Harper Walker (BC Jean) and her best friend Danielle (Chando), who pick up and leave their small town behind when Harper is discovered by a record producer. If you thought mom-a-gers were tough, try having a friend-a-ger, that's what Danielle becomes for Harper, vowing to make sure her girl doesn't get eaten alive in the sea of sharks that can be Hollyweird.
Talent is produced by Alloy Entertainment, the same juggernaut behind The CW's Gossip Girl, The Vampire Diaries and the upcoming The Secret Circle. The company also brought us ABC Family's Pretty Little Liars and the hit big screen Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants franchise.
Savvy entertainment brand developers like Alloy are providing content that can help displaced fans of daytime dramas get their scripted soapy fix in primetime, on cable, at the movies and on the web! Check out Chando in the first three webisodes of Talent after the jump. Then head over to AlloyTV.com to watch the rest!
Remember yesterday when I told you a former West Coast soap ingenue had booked a high profile drama pilot? Well, our pals at Zap2it are now confirming ex-Days of Our Lives beauty Shelley Hennig (ex-Stephanie) has joined the pilot for The CW's Secret Circle!
Hennig will play the head of a powerful, prep school witches' coven, who befriends protagonist Cassie (Britt Robertson) on the supernatural sudser from Kevin Williamson (Vampire Diaries) and Andrew Miller (Imaginary Bitches), based on the YA novels from L.J. Smith. In other Secret Circle, casting news, Zap2it also confirmed Smallville's Jessica Parker Kennedy will be playing another of the witchy women named Melissa in the pilot. Can't. Wait. For. This.
