‘One Life to Live’ Casts Its New Destiny

Soap Opera Network has learned exclusively that Laura Harrier has been cast in the contract role of Destiny Evans on “One Life to Live.” She replaces Shennell Edmonds, who portrayed the character on the ABC version of the series from 2009-2012. No word yet on who will be portraying the recast version of Matthew Buchanan, last played by Eddie Alderson.

“OLTL” marks Harrier’s first role as a series regular on television.

Harrier is a New York based international model represented by Muse NYC. The Chicago native has shot campaigns for American Eagle, Target, and L’oreal and has been photographed for such magazines as Glamour, Elle, and Cosmopolitan.

As previously reported, Prospect Park is looking to make things a little edgier on their soaps as Destiny seems to be dabbling into the world of Sugar Babies.

This recast is just about up there with Blair.
Obese isn't a race.
It isn't just about the weight. The bitch will has gotten quite taller as well.
This is like saying Chandler Massey can't play will because the twins and Harry Styles lookalike before him all had brown hair.

CBS said no to letting him do both.
LoL I find that hilarious considering DAYS has let CBS use Lauren Koslow & Eileen Davidson.

I don't have a problem with the new actress. The original was awful. Plus, people lose and gain weight all the time. It's not like they cast Molly Burnett as Destiny.

I don't think it was posted here but they cast AMC's Miranda, too. It wasn't "confirmed" by PP though.

So far I like the looks of who they are going for for the parts. I can't explain it but they seem somewhat different than the usual soap hires.

Shenell Edmonds said on FB that they did ask her to join, but they couldn't accommodate her school schedule. So she politely declined!

Oh come on now, the original girl that played Destiny wasn't that big. Yes, she had some weight on her, but I would never call her obese. Regardless, I find this complete 180 on the look of Destiny rather amusing. The new actress is like a foot taller and rail thin. Couldn't they have found someone a little shorter with some curves?
