Through InTurn - an online contest that puts nine aspiring actors and actresses in a house to compete for one television role - this fresh face will soon appear on one of the longest running soap operas.
Finalists Dyon, Jessamyn and Ryan appeared on several episodes of the show while fans were still voting for their favorite actor. All played small parts in JJ's kidnapping storyline. You'll remember Dyon portrayed Idaho bartender Kit; Jessamyn played an informant with a clue to JJ's whereabouts; and Ryan was one of Kit's employees, as well as a small time thief.
When As the World Turns fans were finished voting, Serhart became the winner of InTurn 2 and earned himself a 13-week contract with the show! He'll begin appearing in his new role on November 7 as Evan Walsh IV, a biochemist with a proposal for Craig.
The first InTurn winner, Alex Charak, is still with As the World Turns. He plays Elwood.
