Sparks will play the recurring role of Dr. Lena Cavett, a physician who works with stroke patients, according to Soap Opera Digest.
According to the magazine, Dr. Cavett is hired by Adam (Mark Grossman) to help Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) recover from a stroke that has her immobile. What can viewers expect from the doctor? Sparks stated that Dr. Cavett is
Direct but kind. I play her as doing the best she can to help the situation, whether it’s being honest or encouraging. She’s very grounded and in a very understanding, compassionate way.
Look for her first airdate on Jan. 7.
