'RTSB' is pleased to announce the casting of Clive Robertson as Ashton Lavery, Carrington Garland as Kelly Capwell, and Alisa Reyes as Marta Ramirez. Thanks to everyone who pitched their ideas for each role! Negotiations with Carrington were lengthy and 'RTSB' exec producer juniorZ was scrambling in case the deal fell through. Kelly is integral to the stories I've been setting up for 2007. Given the nature of Kelly's upcoming storyline, 'RTSB' felt that Carrington would be best suited to return in the role. After some convincing, she agreed. Kelly will return to town with a secret- she's fallen in love with and married Ashton Lavery. Ashton's last name should be familiar to readers- since Dr. Edmund Lavery, who was recently introduced, is indeed his father. Both actors are on contract. Alisa Reyes is slated for a short-term recurring gig. See the previews below for her storyline.
In other casting news, Gina Gallego will be returning to the Santa Barbara fold as Santana Andrade. Santana will return to spend Christmas with her mother, Rosa. Some viewers may remember that 'RTSB' has mentioned that Santana is living in Mexico. How long will she be in Santa Barbara? Not long, necessarily, but she will be on 'RTSB' through much of 2007. At the moment, the role is recurring, though 'RTSB' may be open to extending Ms. Gallego a contract offer, depending on how the story plays.
