Teen soap Youthful Daze is currently enjoying a successful second season. Two familiar faces who will soon be walking the halls of Westfield Prep may boost the show's popularity even further. Jen Lilley (Theresa Donovan, Days of our Lives; ex-Maxie Jones, General Hospital) and Brittany Underwood (ex-Langston Wilde, One Life to Live) will be joining the show. Both actresses will be series regulars starting in season three.
Lilley will play Natalie Cardin, Oliver's (Easton Schirra) sister who cut all ties with her family and left town a few years ago. Natalie's return to town will shake up her family and the show in a big way. Underwood will take on the role of Sheila Edmundson, described as "a rebel without a cause," who Becca (Sarah Hester) meets in rehab.
Youthful Daze, which promises to introduce viewers to "the kids your parents warned you about," revolves around students at the fictional Westfield Prep, a high school governed by money and power and where deceit, drama, and temptation lurk in every corner.
Season two of the series, which won a 2014 Best Writing & Best Premise/Concept for a Soap Opera award at the 2014 LA Web Series Festival, is currently airing at youthfuldaze.com/. Production on the next season is already underway, and season three is set to premier August 31st and run for 42 weeks straight.
This new role will mean double duty for Lilley, who started airing as Theresa Donovan on DAYS on July 3, 2014. Underwood has, among other things, been busy with former OLTL costar Kristen Alderson promoting PimpMyPooch.com, a business that will offer deals for dog owners while raising money for animal shelters and rescue groups. You can listen to the two discuss the project on the May 9, 2014, episode of Soap Central Live.
