So many of us have missed John-Paul Lavoisier, who was extremely popular in the role of Rex Balsom on One Life to Live! Now comes word that Lavoisier is the next soap all-star to garner a role in Crystal Chappell’s upcoming new web series, Beacon Hill!
John-Paul will play Eric Preston who is Claire’s son (Crystal Chappell) and Sara’s brother. Eric’s easy smile hides a steely resolve and sharp ambition. His grandfather’s stroke may be just the excuse he’s been waiting for to make his move.
According to the series website, the premise of the story is: “When Senior Massachusetts Senator William Preston suffers a stroke, his rebellious granddaughter Sara is called home to Boston. Once there, Sara finds that her ailing grandfather has a new wife barely older than herself, that her mother Claire is still hiding in her room with her favorite bottle, and that her brother Eric is playing nursemaid in between board meetings. Sara also discovers that her ex, State Representative Katherine Wesley, is being mentioned as a possible Senatorial candidate in a cat-and-mouse game controlled by Sara’s grandfather. When former lovers Sara Preston and Katherine Wesley reconnect after six years apart, it seems unlikely that they’ll ever be able to put their past behind them. And with the political turmoil, family intrusions and the press interfering, it may be downright impossible.”
John-Paul joins the likes of already announced stars: Ricky Paull Goldin, Louise Sorel, Sarah Brown, and Melissa Archer! Yes, Lavoisier will appear on the series with his One Life to Live on-screen sister!
