They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but we wonder what good is a picture when you can’t recognize the subject? Above is a snapshot of a future star of soaps, but can you guess who this picture-perfect little cutie grew up to be?
Star Of The Soaps
Obviously, this young woman (now all grown up) is either currently starring in, or is an alum of, one of the four remaining daytime dramas – The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of our Lives, General Hospital, and The Young and the Restless – but that’s probably not enough of a hint.
So try these on for size. She initially prioritized athletics but after entering a poetry completion, she decided that an actor’s life was for her. She graduated from the University of Southern California. She’s appeared on two soap operas. She voiced an animated character. She worked as an instructor for Soul Cycle. She met her husband on a dating app.
But just who can be? Is this a photograph of Karla Mosley (ex-Maya Avant, BB), Sal Stowers (Lani Price Grant, DAYS), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan Ashford, GH), or Lexie Stevenson (ex-Mattie Ashby, YR)?
While a member of the children’s TV show Hi-5, Mosley hosted a segment called Body Move in which she led viewers in stretching and exercising. But Mosley never did work as a Soul Cycle instructor, so she isn’t today’s featured star.
Prior to joining the cast of DAYS, Stowers had played Cassandra Foster on All My Children. But appearing in an ad for 24 Hour Fitness as well as being National Academy of Sports Medicine certified does not necessarily a Soul Cycle instructor make, and Stowers has yet to give an animated character a voice. So she isn’t the answer to today’s identity query.
And neither is Stevenson. Though she excelled at a number of sports, Stevenson knew that she wanted to be an actress since the age of 5 and that was the career that she pursued. She won acclaim for her run on YR as Mattie, but that currently stands as her only soap opera role.
Briana Nicole Henry
While still an undergraduate at USC, Henry was tapped to appear on YR as a love interest for the character of Devon Hamilton (Bryton James). After the stint ended, Henry resumed her schooling, claimed her BFA in theater, and found steady employment as a Soul Cycle instructor while continuing her pursuit of a career in the acting field.
In addition to her current run on GH, Henry has appeared in episodes of Shameless, The Morning Show, Jane the Virgin, and Insecure, as well as the Netflix original film Bright. Henry also voiced the character Sunday in the animated series The Weeklings.
So, if you guessed that the future star of soaps seen in the image above was Briana Nicole Henry, then you were absolutely correct!
