The SFN -- the online television network -- today announced that act- ress Jillian Clare has been cast as Maci Vanowen, the self-proclaimed queen of makeup and high fashion, whose business instincts have turned her hobby into a small cottage in- dustry in the upcoming teen web soap Gorgeous.
Clare, who portrayed troubled pre- teen Abby Deveraux on NBC's daytime soap opera Days of Our Lives, can currently be seen in the Emmy nominated Victorious movie Freak The Freak Out on Nickelodeon, and is producer and star of the award-winning web series Miss Behave.
"Jillian is the perfect Maci Vanowen," said Stewart St. John who, along with Todd Fisher, created the teen soap. "She's a strong actress who will bring dimension to the character... making Maci someone who is not only beautiful, but interesting and compelling."
"Gorgeous is an incredibly fun, lipstick and gloss show with some good classic drama thrown into the mix," said Fisher. "Not only do we explore the rivalry between Maci and her cousin Ashley who arrives in Beverly Hills from the wrong side of the tracks, but we also explore the relationships of these girls and their mothers -- so it's a show that has conflict, depth and major drama."
With regards to the character of Ashley, The SFN has also rolled out an innovative, interactive casting component to the show. Beginning today, girls around the US can audition for Gorgeous by downloading pages from the script online, and then film themselves on camera. The selected videos will be uploaded to The SFN network site to be voted on by the general public. The top three girls with the highest votes will be flown to Los Angeles where they'll have an opportunity to read for the producers and possibly land a major role in the series.
"We're calling it the official "Search For Ashley Kinkaid" open casting call," said Fisher. "We believe there are some very talented, unknown actresses out there and we want to use the web space to find them."
"It's what makes us different than a traditional TV series," said St. John. "We can utilize the space to connect and give opportunities to people who might not have a shot otherwise. We're all very excited."
