THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Ashley Jones (Bridget) proved that you can go back again when she teamed up with Christian LeBlanc (Michael, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) for Nickelodeon's Grave Secrets (a feature film based on Annette and Gina Cascone's Deadtime Stories book series), which debuted in early 2012. "I played Christian's wife — it was fun! I had worked with him before on Y&R [as Megan Dennison] years and years ago — I've known him since I was a teenager!" Jones explains of the movie in which a babysitter (Jennifer Stone) shares frightful tales with her young charges. "And Christian produced this, so when he asked me to be a part of it, I said, 'Of course!'"

In the meantime, DEADTIME STORIES, a new Nickelodeon series also based on the books, began airing earlier this month. The episode titled "Little Magic Shop Of Horrors," which airs Thursday, October 31 at 8 p.m. EST, will feature soap opera alumni Charles Shaughnessy (ex-Shane, DAYS OF OUR LIVES) and Eric Roberts (ex-Vance, Y&R). Then at 8:30 p.m., an episode that was made from Grave Secrets will air as the series' finale. "It's super sweet and adorable, but it has enough spooky stuff to keep [young viewers] guessing and wanting more," Jones reveals. "The kids in it were really, really talented. We filmed in a very spooky-looking house in downtown Los Angeles."
