Former OLTL Star David Chisum Chats On His New Role In ABC’s Black Box!

Courtesy/ABC

In an at times haunting, thought-provoking look into mental illness and medical conditions of the brain, ABC’s new dramatic series, Black Box features a stellar cast led by Kelly Reilly as brilliant neurologist Dr. Catherine Black, who suffers from bipolar disorder, and Vanessa Redgrave, who plays her therapist Dr. Helen Hartramph.  However, in this rollercoaster ride of a series which is also stunning visually, there is a very familiar face to daytime soap fans who is also one of the main characters in the cast of Black Box!  And that would be … former One Life to Live star, David Chisum (Ex-Miles Laurence) who plays Catherine’s brother, Joshua Black!

In Black Box, Chisum sheds his often cast “bad guy” persona, and plays the “good guy” and Catherine’s protector. And that sets the stage for familial drama ten times over when you see how the brother and sister’s lives are intertwined. 

On-Air On-Soaps had the opportunity to chat with David to get some insight into his new role and to catch up with him since his Llanview days!  But what we loved the most was David’s candor and humor as he told us the story of how he got cast in Black Box, and what he thought of his OLTL character’s turn from disfigured lost soul to one of the most evil villains with quite the reign of terror! And the story of David’s first day on the set of One Life is also one for the records books, too.

Don’t miss the season premiere of Black Box this Thursday, April 24th at 10PMET/PT in the episode entitled, “Kiss the Sky”… and now here’s what David shared with us! Read more >
