Cosmo magazine lovers who also love soap operas are in for some seriously awesome news. Former One Life to Live star Meghann Fahy (ex-Hannah O'Connor) and former All My Children star Sam Page (ex-Trey Kenyon) have landed roles on Freeform's drama pilot, Issues, which is inspired by the real-life women's mag and its Editor-in-Chief Joanna Coles.
Previously developed at NBC, the series stars Faking It alum Katie Stevens and offers a glimpse into the lives and loves of the editorial staff of Scarlet Magazine. "Their struggles are about finding your identity, managing friendships and getting your heart broken, all while wearing the perfect jeans to flatter any body type," states The Hollywood Reporter of the show's premise and characters.
Fahy has joined the cast as Sutton, an assistant at Scarlet who is humble and dependable but is also keeping a giant secret from her friends. Page will play the a lawyer for the publishing group; Stevens will play the role of Jane, who lands her dream job as a writer at the magazine but struggles with life in NYC; and Aisha Dee will play Kat, a bold and fearless young woman who's promoted to social media director. Melora Hardin has been cast as the editor-in-chief of Scarlet, and Matt Ward will play a fellow writer who is smitten with Jane.
As soap fans may recall, Fahy starred on OLTL from 2010 to 2012 as Hannah, a deranged girl who caused many a problem for young lovers Cole (Brandon Buddy) and Starr (Kristen Alderson). Meanwhile, Page starred on AMC from 2002 to 2003 as Trey, who turned out to be not only Kendall's (Alicia Minshew) brother via Richard Fields, the man who raped Erica Kane (Susan Lucci), but also the brother of Leo (Josh Duhamel) and David (Vincent Irizarry) via their psychotic mother, Vanessa Bennett (Marj Dusay).
