Now here’s two folks that we had a lot of fun with when we visited the cast of Guiding Light on location in 2009 in Orlando! And now soap fans will get to see Karla Mosley and Lawrence Saint-Victor return to daytime and this time out it will be as new roles on The Bold and the Beautiful!
As hinted at in this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, B&B’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell indicated he was beefing up the Dayzee/Marcus storyline with some faces people knew! Soap viewers remember that Mosley and Saint-Victor played young married Springfield couple Christina and Remy Boudreau on GL shortly before it went off the air.
TV Guide got some exclusive scoop on the situation today stating that a rep for B&B revealed the casting of the duo was not intentional stating, “We went for the two best actors possible. These new characters are not connected, though they will arrive on the show in close proximity.”
Mosley joins the cast January 17th as Maya, a woman who shares a Skid Row past with Dayzee (Kristolyn Lloyd) — and Dayzee is not one bit happy about it! Saint-Victor hits January 29th playing a not-yet-named character who is the adoptive brother of Dayzee’s husband Marcus (Texas Battle). Both are contract roles.”
So soapers, what do you think of the casting of Karla and Lawrence to the B&B canvas? Are you glad that this gives more story to Dayzee and Marcus?
