Final casting announcements were made today for the upcoming digital series Winterthorne! One Life to Live alum John-Paul Lavoisier (Ex-Rex) and Days of our Lives alum Kevin Spirtas (Ex-Craig) have joined the star-studded line-up.
Lavoisier has been cast as Hugh Cambridge, a handsome and mysterious man from Miranda’s (lead actress Martha Madison) past. Hugh is hell bent on becoming a member of the Winterthorne family and Miranda has severely underestimated his intent to seduce her.
“John-Paul has a great edgy quality that I wanted for the character of Hugh,” explains series creator and Emmy-nominee, Michael Caruso, “John-Paul is fantastic at creating subtle, smoldering layers with his acting that will build into something dangerous within the character.”
“I’m so happy to be working with my old friend, the very talented John-Paul,” adds Emmy-nominated director Sonia Blangiardo, Winterthorne will exceed expectations with him involved as a part of this amazing cast.”
Kevin Spirtas has been tapped to play Dominic Delacort in the new online series, Winterthorne. The character is described as a major player within the family. He has been charged by the Winterthorne women to train their husbands and future husbands in the art of making candy. There is a sense of wonder within him alongside a sense of
true bitterness for being controlled by them.
“Kevin is a wonderful actor,” says series creator and Emmy-nominee, Michael Caruso, “And I think what struck me about him as perfect for the part of Dominic is the sense of mischievousness he possesses.
Dominic is a character that has been put in a very specific position of power by the Winterthorne women, and yet he’s powerless at the same time and we really see him struggle with that.”
“Kevin is not only a delightful person, but an incredibly talented actor,” adds series star Martha Madison, “I loved watching him play the devious character of Craig Wesley on Days! He made it fun to root for the bad guy!”
