Doesn’t this headline sound a bit familiar? On the surface it’s a tried and true soap opera formula; think DAYS Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) AKA Ghoul Girl, or GH’s version of Ugly Betty, Sabrina Santiago (Teresa Castillo), and others over time. Now whether or not this character falls anywhere near that pattern remains to be seen.
However, according to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, the number one soap opera has put out a casting call for the role of Ilsa.
The part is said to be recurring and the series is looking for an actress in her 20′s. The casting breakdown read as follows: A native of Sweeden (or perhaps Denmark or Switzerland) who was raised in the U.S. and has no accent. She is is described as, “A genius child prodigy.” Ilsa is pretty, but her passion for the nerdy cyber life/work has left her a tad socially awkward and a little quirky- however Ilsa will blossom.
So put on your casting director hats and let us know who do you think fits the bill? What actress from daytime or primetime would you like to see on Y&R? After reading the character description, what story and with whom do you think “Ilsa” might find herself involved in within Genoa City? Share your thoughts below!
