Newcomer ChaunteÚ Schuler has landed the role of Bonnie on As the World Turns. The stage veteran is slated to make her first on-screen appearance next month. Bonnie has been off-screen for nearly four years.
ChaunteÚ Schuler joins the cast as Bonnie McKechnie. The role of Bonnie was previously held by Napiera Danielle, who played Bonnie from 2001 to 2003 when Bonnie was sent off to jail. She reprised the role briefly in 2004 when her character was released from prison. Bonnie then headed south for Miami where she presumably has been ever since.

Schuler is a newcomer to daytime television, but not to acting. Schuler appeared as Nala in the national touring company of Disney's The Lion King. Her work as Deena Jones in the Prince Music Theatre's production of Dreamgirls earned Schuler a Barrymore Award nomination in 2006 for Outstanding Leading Actress in a Musical. The Barrymores celebrate achievement in Philadelphia-area theatre. Schuler and fiancÚ Joshua Walker appeared as one of seven couples that made cut as finalists on NBC's "Today Throws a Wedding."


Schuler first appears on Monday, November 5th when, according to a show spokesperson, Bonnie "helps Holden through a difficult time."
