So many fans have been wondering just what was the reason that Shenell Edmonds (Ex-Destiny Evans) would not be returning for Prospect Park’s reboot of One Life to Live, especially with the casting news that the part has now been recast!
Edmonds took to her Facebook page to post a very special message to her fans and friends on why Llanview is not a city stop in the near future: “Many of you have asked me about the Prospect Park reboot of OLTL online so here goes. I am very excited about the return of OLTL as many of you are. Obviously I can’t give specifics but I will tell you that I was invited to join the cast. Unfortunately, they were unable to accommodate my school schedule therefore, I had to politely decline. My heartfelt thanks to all of you for rooting for my return and your continuous support. OLTL will always be dear to my heart and hey, you never know, soaps may return into my life at another time.
Lots of love, Shenell”
Shenell began her message with some background as to what she has been up to since the end of ABC’s OLTL: “A huge shout out to all the One life to live fans! I have been enjoying life to the fullest and slowly easing into college life since you last saw me on OLTL. During the past year, you might have seen me in a few commercials and most recently out & about as a nominee for the 44th NAACP Image Awards held in Los Angeles on February 1st. I had a chance to visit with Frank Valentini, ex-OLTL and current GH Executive producer and Paul Glass, ex- OLTL and current GH Musical Director. It was so nice seeing them again.”
So soapers, hard to believe anyone else playing the role of Destiny, when Shenell made us love her and root for her in the role! But, are you understanding why Shenell could not commit to being part of the series reboot? Will you miss the on-screen relationship between Eddie Alderson (Matthew, who is also not returning) and Shenell? Weigh-in
