Beautiful Dreamer Contest Winner!

We have a winner for our latest contest. Our winner will receive a DVD of the award-winning movie, Beautiful Dreamer. It stars AMC star Colin Egglesfield, Desperate Housewives star James Denton and ex-Melrose Place star Brooke Langton.

To enter, all you had to do was answer one question: Which soap star do you think deserves his or her own movie and why?

Our winner is Bridget of Barlett, Illinois, for this entry:

Alison Sweeney definitely deserves her own movie. Besides being the outrageous character Sami Brady and pulling it off so well, she has a plethora of acting skills that would bring a sure hit to the silver screen. I could see her playing a mom in a comedy with a Adam Sandler as her husband. She has a magical presence on screen that I would love to see!

Thanks to everyone for entering, and be looking out for your DVD of the movie in the mail, Bridget. Congratulations!

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.
