I’m so impressed by all the teens in real life. I’m not used to my soap teen actors balancing college with their shooting schedules (and somehow Eden will also be playing varsity volleyball?) and I love that they’re embracing the college experience. I hope they’re able to juggle it all because the teen storylines have the most potential for me personally.
Primetime comedies seem to be comfortable doing it more than dramas.
I have been digging through my brain to think of a primetime soap that may have done it and I can only think of The OC and Dallas (Jenna). And the latter was recast from an originally one-episode role so it is obviously not the same as recasting a full-on character.
