Lanyfilms productions who are producing the new web series, THE BAY from producer/director Gregori J. Martin, just added another famous and beloved face from daytime to its roster, when it was announced just hours ago, that Matthew Ashford has joined the cast.

According to the production facebook page: “Straight off of his National Tour of the hit musical Mamma Mia!, Matthew Ashford, best known to daytime for his role as Jack Devereaux on Days of our Lives and Tom Hardy on General Hospital, joins the cast of THE BAY in Chapter 7 of the series.
The 4 time Soap Opera Digest Award winning actor will be playing (wait… a little Déjà vu?) Sara Garrett’s prisoned rapist, Steve Jensen, and the father of her oldest child Brian Nelson. Expect Ashford’s character to cause major chaos amongst the people of Bay City. We welcome Matthew Ashford to the show!”

    Wow! Surprising! Great to see Matt. This webseries sounds so ambitious. I’m interested in seeing if they can pull this off. Sounds like such a talented cast. I am interested in seeing all these soap stars in different roles. I’m rooting for them, primetime has almost given up on drama. Reality shows and police procedurals are in the majority.

    2010 seems to be the year of the soap stars showing up on the web.
