Edge of Night and All My Children favorite, Larkin Malloy is the next big name soap star to join the cast of Tainted Dreams in the role of “Henry Steinman,” a director of “Painted Dreams,” (Tainted Dreams’ soap within the soap.)
According to executive producer, Sonia Blangiardo, “‘Henry Steinman’ is the most politically incorrect director in the history of Daytime…truly the ‘Archie Bunker’ of the soap genre. Whatever crosses ‘Henry’s’ mind comes out of his mouth…in the most inappropriate way possible,” and Blangiardo grins, “Before you ask, yes, Larkin and I may have known a real-life director who might allegedly fit this description.”
Tainted Dreams follows senior producer of the show “Painted Dreams,” Angelica (Alicia Minshew, All My Children) as she navigates the craziness of running a daily soap opera. Blangiardo promises, “Tainted Dreams proves the drama behind the drama is the real drama.”
Malloy joins what Blangiardo has begun to refer to as her “Dream team” which includes Alicia Minshew (All My Children), Terri Ivens (All My Children), Grant Aleksander (Guiding Light), Kelley Menighan Hensley (As the World Turns), Walt Willey (All My Children), Natalia Livingston (General Hospital), Marnie Schulenburg (As the World Turns), Michael Lowry (All My Children), Austin Peck (Days of our Lives), Colleen Zenk (As the World Turns), Dina Manzo (Dina’s Party and Real Housewives of New Jersey), Anthony Wilkinson (My Big Gay Italian Wedding and the new My Big Gay Italian Funeral), Lisa Marie Varon (IMPACT WRESTLING) and “Mr. PEC-Tacular” Jessie Godderz (IMPACT WRESTLING and Big Brother). The series is set to begin filming in and around New York City on July 29th.
Malloy, who is one of NYC’s most successful and sought after acting teachers and private coaches, has played a variety of soap roles including: “Dr. Weston,” As the World Turns (2002); “Travis Montgomery,” All My Children (1987-1992, 1997, 1998, 2001); “Clay Alden,” Loving (1992); “Kyle Sampson,” Guiding Light (1984-1987); Search for Tomorrow (appeared in final episode); and the dual roles of “Schuyler Whitney” and “Jefferson Brown,” The Edge of Night (1980-1984).
