Lifetime is continuing its tradition of featuring soap opera actors in its films with the upcoming release of Adopted in Danger, which stars Allison Paige (ex-Bev Walters, Days of our Lives), Tyler Johnson (Theo Vanderway, The Young and the Restless), and several other soap stars.
The tense film, previously titled Killing Your Daughter, follows Paige in the role of Candace, who is able to connect with her birth parents after taking a DNA test. However, what should have been a happy experience actually makes her realize that some family histories are better left untold.
Allison Paige played the role of DAYS' Bev from 2008 to 2015 before going on to appear in shows like Supernatural, Insecure, and Good Trouble. Tyler Johnson currently plays the role of Y&R's Theo, which he took on last year.
"So much fun to work with these talented actors," Johnson shared via an Instagram story of his experience working on the Lifetime thriller film.
Other stars who will appear in Adopted in Danger include Sarah Aldrich, who played Port Charles' Kourtney Canelos from 1998 to 2000 and appeared as Y&R's Victoria in 1997; Jason Brooks, who played DAYS' Peter Blake from 1993 to 1996; Shelly Kurtz, who played Det. Pete Reynolds on Knots Landing from 1992 to 1993; Tessa Munro, who played All My Children's Tanya Araiza in 2010; and Mel Fair, who played a radio announcer on Passions from 2005 to 2007 and a reporter on Y&R from 2007 to 2010.
Adopted in Danger is set to premiere on Sunday, January 26, on Lifetime.
