Soap Alums Anna Holbrook, Agim Kaba and Tonja Walker Sign on For Prequel to Season 2 of The Bay!


Holy, Sharlene Hudson, Batman! A near-all soap star cast has been assembled for Far From The Bay, a prequel to Season 2 of the juicy web sudser that follows Sara Garrett's (Mary Beth Evans) troubled youngest son Peter (Kristos Andrews) on a quest to find Claire Andrews (Marie Wilson), the woman who adopted him and raised him for several years while Sara, suffering from amnesia, forgot she had given birth to a future abs machine spokesperson.

Appearing in the prequel, will be Anna Holbrook who played my dear, darling DID suffering Sharlene Frame Matthews Watts Hudson on Another World, Agim Kaba (ex-Aaron, As The World Turns), One Live to Live legend Tonja Walker, Ilene Kristen (Roxy, OLTL). Holbrook will be playing Claire's sister-in-law while Kaba will be playing Holbrook's son. Kristen will be making her debut as Dr. Liza Garrett, Sara's aunt, while Walker will be playing a mystery role.

Look for Far From The Bay to also boast crossovers from New York-based webisoaps Steamboat, Empire and possibly Gotham. This sounds like fun! The miniseries debuts this summer.

    Could Kristos Andrews be any more adorable if he tried???? :love: :love: :love: :love:

    I am currently watching Chapter 1 of “The Bay” online, so I am behind the curve. But I will be done sometime this weekend, hopefully. Of course, it’s got it’s flaws, like any other soap, but I think it’s a pretty decent webisoap.

    How clever! I love the idea of Peter going off in search for his mother and am excited to see who he might find along the way. Looking forward to seeing Kristos in this!

    Anna Holbrook is one of my all time favorites! It will be nice to see her again. She does more with a scene than most scenery chewers and yet she is understated and subtle. Am looking forward to this!

    I got a few bits wrong earlier, which I’ve since corrected. Anna will be playing Marie Wilson’s sister-in-law, not her mother. Agim is playing Anna’s son, however and Ilene Kristen is playing Mary Beth’s aunt, not her sister. Whew! It’s been a loooong day. LOL
