Rowell Finds Deadly Romance

Victoria_Rowell02318.jpg

THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Victoria Rowell (ex-Drucilla) had a frightfully good time making her upcoming film, Mirror, Mirror for TV One. "It's three movies -- a trilogy called The Fright Night Files -- and I'm in one of them," she tells Soaps In Depth. "I star opposite THE BLACKLIST's Harry Lennix as his love interest."

Actually, Rowell portrays one of two ladies in the charismatic man's life. He already had a live-in girlfriend named Jessica (played by Rowell's former Y&R daughter, Davetta Sherwood, ex-Lily) who's more than a bit unhappy with him. Upon arriving home to find Jessica performing a strange ritual with a friend, the creeped out guy will have a decision to make. Will the unique mirror that she gives him change his outlook? Tune in on Saturday, October 18, at 8 p.m. EST to find out!

Reunited!
If the chemistry between Rowell and Lennix seems easy, there's a good reason for it. "This is like our fourth project. He was my love interest [Agent Ron Wagner] on DIAGNOSIS MURDER," Rowell reveals. "And I starred in a movie last year that he's producing -- it's still being edited."

What else is ahead for the popular star? Also on Saturday, October 18, she'll be the keynote speaker at the St. Agnes Home's [http://stagneshome.org] Centennial Celebration at the Marriott hotel in Hartford, CT. For tickets or sponsorship information, click here. After that, she has a starring role in the holiday film Marry Us For Christmas, the sequel to UPtv's 2013 ratings juggernaut, Marry Me For Christmas. And keep an eye out for our Keeping Track feature with Rowell in an upcoming issue of Soaps In Depth!

UPDATE: ATWT Star Books Plum Primetime Part!

MichaelPark.jpg

AS THE WORLD TURNS' fan favorite Michael Park (Jack) has landed a three-episode arc on NBC's CHICAGO P.D. Speaking to Soaps In Depth directly from the Windy City where the series is produced, Park shares the details about his exciting new role, which begins airing Wednesday, October 15, at 10 p.m.

"Asher is a diamond dealer who hires Antonio Dawson, John Seda's character, to work private security for him," Park reveals. "He's a bit of a rough guy -- he's rough on his wife -- and Dawson is not used to taking orders from someone of my background, so there will be some tension there between the two of them for sure."

While Park did not get to work with fellow ATWT alum Jesse Lee Soffer (Will), who plays brash detective Jay Halstead on the drama, they did discover that they share yet another connection. "India de Beaufort (ONE TREE HILL) plays my wife in this, and she's wonderful," Park reveals. "She and Jesse know each other very well, so India and I got to know each other through that one degree of separation."

In other great news, Park has begun rehearsals for NBC's upcoming production of Peter Pan Live as Cecco, a pirate who will be a member of Captain Hook's (played by Christopher Walken) crew. The beloved musical is scheduled to air Thursday, December 4, at 8 p.m. EST. For more from the star, look for his upcoming Keeping Track feature in Soaps In Depth.

John Wesley Shipp Previews THE FLASH

ShippFlash.jpg

Tonight is going to be déjà vu all over again for John Wesley Shipp (Kelly, GUIDING LIGHT; Douglas, AS THE WORLD TURNS) when THE FLASH debuts on The CW at 8:00 p.m. EST. The two-time Emmy winner, who played the title role in the primetime series about the DC Comics character that ran (get it? "ran?") from 1990-91 on CBS, is appearing in the new series, but in a slightly different role.

Are there many similarities between soap opera fans and devotees of the superhero world? "That's a very interesting question," Shipp tells Soaps In Depth. "It's one I haven't been asked before so bravo! They are similar and, at times, an overlapping audience."

Shipp says that the series title character (aka Barry Allen), played by Grant Gustin, is an actor to watch. "He can do comedy, play a genius when Barry is analyzing a crime scene and then turn around and break your heart. He's got it all."

In this version of THE FLASH, Shipp is playing Barry's dad, Henry, who's been wrongly incarcerated for killing his wife. Watch for Shipp to recur throughout the season as Barry fights to clear his dad's name. "I've had scenes with Jesse L. Martin (Det. Joe West) whose character has drilled into Henry's son's head that his father was a killer. What will he do when he finds out that he was wrong?"

THE FLASH airs Tuesdays at 8:00 p.m. EST on The CW, and you can read more about Shipp in the new issue of CBS Soaps In Depth, on newsstands now!
