Daytime veteran Grayson McCouch has been cast as "Vincent," a purported newcomer on As The World Turns. But McCouch's character isn't exactly he might seem to be.
McCouch will play Dusty Donovan, a character with a rich history. Dusty was Lily Snyder's first love and he is also the true Stenbeck heir. Speculation is that Dusty will be a love interest for Rose. To better acquaint fans with Dusty's past, As The World Turns will air a special flashback episode from 1987 on Christmas Day. [Please click here for more information about this special episode.]
