New Faces Come to As The World Turns
Alex Charak plays Elwood (Soaps.com)
They may not have a lot of screen time and sometimes may not even have a name, but some soap opera dayplayers have a huge impact on our favorite soap. Recently, there have been many fresh faces seen around Oakdale. We thought you might like to know a little more about them.
A few weeks ago, Diane Perell appeared as Ruby, a homeless woman who helped Carly clear Parker. Though Ruby only said a few lines, her willingness to come forward with information about Kit is what ultimately kept Parker out of jail. Before winning the role of Ruby, Diane Perell has had a long career on television and on Broadway. She has made guest-star appearances on shows such as “L.A. Dragnet” and in plays such as “Manner of Trust”.
Just a few days ago, the minister at Brad and Katie’s wedding made us giggle. The wedding itself was hilarious – where else but a soap would all of a bride’s exes be a part of her new wedding? – but the minister took the cake when he froze, leaving no other choice but for Henry to fill in. The minister was played by David Bernardy.
There have been several new faces surrounding the Noah/Ameera/Luke love story, mostly because of Ameera’s immigration status.
With the ICE watching Noah's and Ameera's every move, there have been several federal agents hanging around. Robert Cuthill played the agent who accepted their marriage, but who ordered other agents to watch the couple - just in case. Robert has also appeared on Days of Our Lives and "Raw Footage".
Two other agents have made things tough for Ameera. Ivan Hernandez and Amir Arisen play these agents, who appear at the most inopportune times. Ivan Hernandez has appeared in several television movies including "Roots & Wings" and "Down Into Happiness". You may have noticed Amir Arisen on several cop dramas including "Law & Order", "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" and "The Jury". In 2003, he appeared on Guiding Light as Armande.
Finally, Alex Charak's Elwood is a familiar face for most fans of the show, but he hasn't been around regularly since 2006. In the fall, he helped Cheri with her plot to discredit Alison and Dusty. Just this week, he popped up in Oakdale again, this time to cause trouble for Casey. Margo arrested him but will this spell the end of Elwood's time in Oakdale? Only time with tell! Alex has also appeared in the show "Distance".
