It looks like Dr. Meredith is about to be one busy lady, as”Young and the Restless” star Alicia Coppola started her first day filming the new movie “Cowgirl’s Story.”

Coppola will star opposite fellow soap actor Jordi Vilasuso (Dario, “Days of Our Lives”) in a film about a cowgirl trying to find how to fit in at a new school. Dusty (Bailee Madison, “The Good Witch”) eventually finds a friend in Savannah (Chloe Lukasiak, “Dance Moms) when the two bond over living with military parents despite their very different appearances and upbringings.

Coppola plays Dusty’s helicopter pilot mother, Helen, a woman struggling to balance her responsibilities as mother and soldier. Vilasuso will play Mike. Coppola confirmed her new project last week when she shared her first picture from the set. “Great 1st day as mommy #Helen to this gorgeous gal @Bailee Madison on @Cowgirl_story!” she wrote.
