ABC’s scandalous summer sudser, Mistresses, has added three former soap opera stars to the cast for its second season. General Hospital alums Rebeka Montoya, Jason Gerhardt; Days of our Lives alum Krista Allen will shake things up when the series returns this summer.
Jason Gerhardt, who won General Hospital fans over in 2007-2008 with his charming portrayal of former military man-turned-terrorist-turned-cop, Cooper “Coop” Barrett, is joining as a potential love interest for Alyssa Milano’s Sav. He’ll play Zack, a lost soul who arrives at her home and forms a unique connection with Sav.
Gerhardt’s recent credits include guest appearances on Melissa and Joey, Perception, Vegas, Bones and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.
Rebeka Montoya (ex-Delores Padilla, GH) will recur as Toni, a Latina lawyer whose ambition is matched by her beauty, reports THR. Toni is expected to be a thorn in the side of a few main characters. Montoya joined GH in 2011 but exited the show less than a year later.
Mistresses, based on a series from the UK, revolves around four friends — Savannah (Alyssa Milano), April (Rochelle Aytes), Katie (Yunjin Kim) and Josslyn (Jes Macallan) beautiful women with scandalous love lives, caught in the storms of excitement and self-discovery, secrecy and betrayal, and find themselves at the mercy of the complex relationships they’ve created.
Production begins later this month. Mistresses will return this June.
