19 July 7th, 2012 Laura Wright, Michelle Stafford, and Justin Deas Join Chappell & Company in All-Star Cast of THE GROVE!

All we can say is “Wow!”  Crystal Chappell’s latest online web series, The Grove announced it’s official cast list last evening and it is filled with some of the biggest and most popular names to ever grace daytime television screens!

From what we can tell, at the series centerpiece will be Chappell and her longtime scene partner, Jessica Leccia, once again in new roles.  Chappell plays Nico and Leccia plays Ivy.   But then come the dueling families and citizens of The Grove  that will also be key and major components of the new web soap.  Yup, look for the Moynihans vs. the Kincaids!

Daytime Emmy winners General Hospital’s Laura Wright, The Young and the Restless  Michelle Stafford, Christian LeBlanc and Beth Maitland, Guiding Light’s Justin Deas and  Jordan Clarke all have key roles!  Add to that, daytime favorites formerly from Days of our Lives Peter Reckell and Nadia Bjorlin, and The Bold and the Beautiful’s Linsey Godrey, plus Venice’s Harrison White and Patrick Killian-White, and you have one talented cast!

To check the official casting announcement, go to the The Grove The Series official facebook page and there will be the reveal of who everyone will play! And for more information on the back-story of The Grove, the characters, and what is to come, visit the series website here!

    susan M. replied

    Don’t want to have to pay to see this….If it were OLTL it would be a entirerely different story…………..These aren’t my favorite characters..Didn’t watch Y&R or Guiding Light…………………Or The Days of Our Lives..Not familiar with those soaps…Never watched them …………………………………So I am not sure I will watch this…..

    There’s only one soap that I would pay for and that’s One life to live.

    So would I.. I have a laptop comp. I was going to watch OLTL if it had come on-line..Pretty nice size screen too..My husband has his other comp. So it wouldn’t have interferred with anything..My own comp. to watch OLTL..That would have been GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is going to be fantastic. Can’t wait. Love almost everyone involved, especially CC & JL.

    (btw all you one lifers. It’s over. Get over it. We all had to move on from our various cancelled soaps. You can too. I tried to watch it. Gave it 2 months and could not abide it. There is no need to mention it ad nauseam as the standard for excellence all other shows must ascribe to.)

    “The Grove” looks incredible. Chappell has always produced quality web series. “Venice: The Series” is fantastic and I suspect this shall be too! I’d pay to watch it!!
