Former Sunset Beach and One Life To Live actress Sherri Saum has landed the lead role of Lena in ABC Family's upcoming Jennifer Lopez pilot, The Fosters. The series revolves around a lesbian, mixed-race couple who are raising their adoptive children, alongside a biological son.
Teri Polo has signed on as Lena's partner Stef Foster, a tough-but-kind-hearted police officer. When Lena decides to raise troubled teen Callie, much to Stef's chagrin, the Fosters lives are forever changed.
This pilot season is really turning out to be Six Degrees of Soap-eration. First As The World Turns alum Alexandra Chando and General Hospital's Tyler Christopher end up cast in ABC Family's The Lying Game, a show being helmed by former soap scribe Chuck Pratt (Santa Barbara, General Hospital, Sunset Beach, All My Children), now comes word that former Sunset Beach and One Life to Live beauty Sherri Saum will be playing the daughter of The Young and the Restless guest star Eric Roberts (who also starred in Another World and How to Survive a Marriage) in the ABC primetime soap pilot Grace!
New York soap, primetime and Broadway stars turned out for the Stockings with Care celebrity bartending event at the Stitch Bar & Lounge on November 11. The event, which helps raise money to buy holiday gifts for children whose families cannot afford to celebrate their holiday, brought together stars from All My Children, As the World Turns, One Life to Live and former Guiding Light stars.

I was watching my HBO guilty pleasure - The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency - and at the beginning of tonight's episode there was a promo for In Treatment. I don't watch In Treatment, but the promo caught my attention because I spotted ex One Life to Live star Sherri Saum.
You know how, when you see a celebrity or star and it immediately revives a memory of their past role or performance?

If so, I'd love to know if you enjoy the show so I can decide if I want to watch it or not. READ MORE
