Actor updates for April 3 – 9.

This week, a few “AMC” alums are busy with new films, we’ve a surprise for fans to watch the show earlier, a contest, and find out which big star joked about the media writing her akin to Erica Kane! The countdown begins with 20 days to go…

New billboard lures in fans.
The Online Network set up a billboard advertising for the return of our soap which reads, “You Took My Children I Want Them Back!” A clever way to get folks gazing at the billboard which was found on the corner of Laurel Canyon and Sunset Blvd. in Los Angeles, CA.

Body swap!
Chrystee Pharris (“Passions”) and Lindsey Santefort (“All My Children,” “Castle”) star in “The Takeover” which is the story of best friends Ashley (Santefort), a Caucasian fashion designer, and Tisha (Pharris), an African American comic book artist who debate the difficulty of dating. Each argues that the other has it easier. After help from a friend, the ladies trade places and for 24 hours, they experience the dating scene in each other’s shoes. Watch it here on Soaps.com:
