New Lily Announced for ATWT

Noelle Beck joins the cast of As The World Turns, taking over the role of Lily Snyder, beginning on Thursday, May 8. Most recently, Noelle appeared on Cashmere Mafia. No stranger to daytime television, Noelle got her start on the soap Loving back in 1984.

Noelle has quite a road ahead of her, as she is taking over the role from the very popular Martha Byrne, who was unceremoniously ousted from her longtime role when she and the PTB could not come to terms on her contract - specifically the amount of episodes Martha would be guaranteed each year. ATWT did a smart thing by hiring a familiar face, however, as this should help Noelle's chances of being accepted by sometimes-fickle fans.
