Things are starting to heat up in Pine Valley, fans, and you know what that means – new faces! Soaps.com has learned that two women from Jesse’s past are headed to his present. And bringing problems with them!

The first addition is Shannon Kane; she has been hired to play Natalia. We caught a glimpse of Natalia on Friday, October 3, when she was hanging around Jesse’s apartment. She also met Angie but pretended not to know her.

Shannon is a newcomer to Daytime television. She has appeared on episodes of “CSI: Miami” and “Entourage” and for one episode played Monica on The Young and The Restless in 2007.

The second addition is Laura Koffman (ex-Cassie, One Life To Live). She will play Rebecca, the woman Jesse had an affair with during his 20 year absence; Jesse admitted his involvement with another woman to Angie, but has obviously left out a few things – possibly his daughter, Natalia. That would explain why Natalia showed up out of nowhere and seemed to know Jesse and seemed so interested in Angie, wouldn’t it?

Her first airdate is set for October 28.

Laura Koffman is no stranger to Daytime fans. She played Cassie Cramer Reynolds on OLTL from 1991 – 1999 and then off and on from 2001 – 2004. Some fans may also recognize her as ex-Lindsay from “Another World”; she took on the role of Lindsey in 1991 before being cast as a Llanview Cramer.

Will Angie be able to forgive and move forward? We’ll have to wait and see, but it sure should be a dramatic storyline to play!

Congratulations, and welcome, to both Shannon and Laura from Soaps.com!
