I would like to compile a list of who the casting directors from each of the four shows hired for roles during the calendar year of 2015. I am fuzzy on names, don’t always remember everyone, and sometimes an not sure if someone began in 2014 or 2015 – so I am asking for everybody’s help in figuring out who came on board during 2015! (should returns be considered as part of casting? or only newcomers?)
B&B: Obba Babatunde as Maya’s father, Anna Maria Horsford as Maya’s mother, Reign Edwards as Nicole, Pierson Fode as nuThomas, the transgender guest star last summer (??) – who else?
Days: Paul’s mother, Kristen’s henchman, Vivian Jovanni as nuCiara, James Lastovic as Joey, the actor who is now playing Theo, Jonathon McClendon as Chase, A Martinez as what’s his name?, Michael Cardelle as Kyle (is that his name?), Sal Stowers as Abe’s daughter – who else?
GH: Hayley Erin as Kiki, Rebecca Budig as (blanking out on her name?), the new psychologist, guest roles for Dee Wallace (Pat), Joey Luthman (young Luke/Bill), Chloe Lanier (young Pat) – who else?
Y&R: Michael E. Knight, Jensen Buchanan, Dr. Anderson (actress name?), Sofia Pernas as Marissa, the actor who plays Luca – who else?
I am sure I’ve left lots of actors/actresses off my list….
Let me see what I can add:
B&B: Rome Flynn as Zende is also new this year, right?
DAYS: Kristen’s henchman was Clint, played by Luke Kerr. Kyler Pettis is the actor now playing Theo, A Martinez’s character is Eduardo, and Sal Stowers plays Lani. Olivia Keegan also started as Claire last year. They also got Aussie actor Alexander Bruszt as Fynn, and John-Paul Lavosier began playing Phillip. Paul Telfer didn’t start playing Xander until sometime in 2015, though I don’t remember if the henchman he played for Victor before that started the year before. There were some other minor characters: Dr. Seth Malcolm, the midwife who delivered Abby’s baby, Dr. Salinas, the lab tech who switched Abigail’s paternity test results, Xander’s henchwoman Navidad.
GH: In addition to Hayley Erin as Kiki, Rebecca Budig as Hayden, Anthony Montgomery as Dr. Andre Maddox and those you named involved with Luke’s story, there were also: Brytni Sarpy as Valerie, Robert Palmer Watkins as Dillon, Richard Burgi as Paul, Donnell Turner as Curtis, Grayson McCouch taking over as Sloane, and other minor characters or parts: the guy who played Kevin Collins for an episode, the doctor who did the DNA test for Carly to prove Jason’s identity (and later exonerated him in the assault case), Darby.
Y&R: I don’t think I can add anything here.
