Actress Andrea Evans is joining the cast of Indie Soap Award-winning web series DEVANITY as Vivian Price, the vicious and vengeful mother of Jason DeVanity (Michael Caruso). After being missing for over thirty years, Vivian reemerges to lash out at Preston Regis (Gordon Thomson) for the crimes he committed against her family, and to give her son Jason vital information to help build his business empire.
Best known for her portrayal of Tina Lord Roberts from ABC's ONE LIFE TO LIVE, the Emmy-nominated actress also starred as Rebecca Hotchkiss Crane on NBC's PASSIONS, as as Amber's mother, Tawny, in THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL and THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS.
“Andrea is a beloved and iconic daytime star so when it came time to cast Jason's mother, I couldn't think of a better actress to play her” said DEVANITY executive producer Michael Caruso.
"Andrea is able to embody all the layers of a mother guilt ridden for abandoning her son, and a business woman hell bent on revenge," he added. "Her incredible career in daytime has more than proven her capabilities for the range of emotions necessary for this character, and it is an honor to have her on our show. I am convinced that when Andrea and Gordon are in the room together, sparks are going to fly. After four seasons of DEVANITY, this is the scene I am the most looking forward to."
Evans is scheduled to begin filming this month, and will appear in the fourth episode of the upcoming season. As previously announced, she will be joined by returning stars Kyle Lowder, Gordon Thomson, Charlene Tilton, new guest star Steve Kanaly, and a yet to be announced additional guest star.
The series, from Caruso/Portier Productions, plans to stream Season 4 in early 2014. For more information visit http://devanity.com.
