Who’s coming and who’s going from the soap opera casts of The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of our Lives , General Hospital, and The Young and the Restless?
Soap Opera Casting for the week of May 15, 2023
Here’s a list of the top exit and entrance news from all four daytime dramas.
Another “Davis girl” is being recast on General Hospital. However, it’s only temporary this time. On the heels of Lexi Ainsworth being replaced by Kate Mansi (ex-Abigail, Days of our Lives) as Kristina Corinthos Davis, comes news that Holiday Mia Kriegel is stepping in as Molly Lansing Davis later this month. The move was dictated by actress Haley Pullos being involved in an auto accident and needing to take medical leave while she recovers. Kriegel’s credits include Animal Kingdom and Bull.
Susan Batten (ex-Luna, One Life to Live) and Morgan Fairchild (ex-Sydney, The City) are back as home-shopping stars Flora Gardens and Haven de Havilland, respectively. The duo, who last aired on the soap opera in 2022, will share scenes with Sofia Mattsson, as Sasha promotes the latest Deception product.
Charles Shaughnessy has completed his run as Victor Cassadine. The diabolical character was pronounced dead. Shaugnessy stepped into the role, previously played by Thaao Penghlis (Tony, Days of our Lives), in 2021.
