CASTING: Colleen Zenk Joins THURSTON!

Three-time Emmy nominee Colleen Zenk, who starred as Barbara Ryan on AS THE WORLD TURNS for 32 years, has signed on to appear in Indie Soap Award-nominated THURSTON, playing Agnes Snead. Agnes is the mother of the infamous Snead boys who make their debut in the final three episodes of THURSTON's first season in late August.

“I am thrilled to be joining the wild west of the late 1800s and the Thurston family,” said Zenk. “Kathryn O’Sullivan’s rich storytelling and Paul Awad’s film making are captivating, intriguing, beautiful, dangerous, and unpredictable. I can’t wait to see how Agnes Snead plays into the lives of the residents of the dusty-near-ghost-town of Thurston, Kansas. And I’m so happy to play, once more, the mother of a very bad son… only this time… x’s 3… 3 x’s the fun, with guns… and a woman scorned. Don’t you worry none boys, your Mama is a’ comin’."

According to THURSTON executive producer Kathryn O’Sullivan, Agnes is the former madam of Thurston and the fierce, savvy mother of the naughty Snead boys.  Stay tuned!

THURSTON was nominated for three Indie Soap Awards earlier this year including Best Web Series (Drama).  For more on the show, visit
