According to Renee's Loft on MySpace, Goldsberry's first date on stage will be June 16, 2008, and she will continue in the role until Rent closes on September 7, 2008.

Be sure to drop by Goldsberry's Official Website and congratulate her on landing this great gig!

For those of you who are new to One Life to Live. Goldsberry's Evangeline Williamson was in a big triangle with John McBain and Natalie Buchanan. The JoVan vs. Jolie online fan wars were legendary in their time, though they are now no more than a distant memory, they could be considered by some to be urban legend.

Unfortunately, after the triangle ended the show didn't seem to know to do with the character of Evangeline and she ended up in a coma and the character was written off screen.

Which pairing were you a fan of JoVan or Jolie?
