Another Casting Call!
hits curious and potentially interesting but also probably disastrous ideas keep on coming! Here’s another casting call that’s gone out…
No, they aren’t recasting Shawn and Belle — they’re (apparently) casting their daughter, Claire! According to Soap Opera Digest:
[T]he show is now looking to cast the role of Claire (presumably Shawn and Belle’s daughter born in 2005), as a 15-year-old. They are seeking a gorgeous blonde-haired girl, preferably with blue eyes, who can sing. Claire is described an as offbeat and slightly quirky girl who is trying to find her way through music and art.
I’m sort of shocked by this, but also, Claire should be 10 this year in real time, which is completely insane to me. She should also be older than Ciara, since she received an organ transplant from a dying Zach in order to survive as an infant, but I guess that’s neither here nor there. Regardless of whether or not this is Claire Brady or another girl, they really seem to be committing to a new teen scene, which… makes me nervous.
