ATWT alumna and multi-Emmy winner Jennifer Landon! This isn’t as blatant stunt casting as they did w/Eden Riegel, but stunt casting none the less. The difference is that she at least looks like she can be Doug Davidson’s daughter and that was the sticking point w/Riegel (and other things lol).
And the last time I saw her, she was looking ROGUH. Not gonna lie, I got the same way I do when I see Julie Berman on GH. These young ladies need to stop w/the massacring of their faces. But w/this recent photo it looks like it has settled in.
Hoping for the best w/this casting, but yeah.
I was already rolling my eyes when I saw a link earlier saying that an ATWT alum was joining Y&R, and I thought, “So help me, if they have Martha Byrne or somebody going over there now . . .” So in comparison to what I was thinking, this barely seems like a stunt at all. I also think JL is a good fit for Heather, I think. It seems like a good casting move, but then I never would have imagined Eden Reigel would have been the disaster she was in the role, so I guess we’ll see.
Although, I agree, why are they even bothering with Heather? Soon enough they’ll have well more than enough people in that age group without throwing her in, so I don’t get it.
