Lifetime’s Unauthorized Melrose Place Story is currently in the thick of filming and now the networks version of the cast has finally been revealed in full with the release of a full cast image.
The revelation of the cast image also offers up some tid-bits of what to possibly expect to see covered in the tell-all story with the addition of Vanessa Williams/Aerobics instructor Rhonda Blair who was unceremoniously booted off the show by the end of Melrose’s first season to the cast. Check out the image below.
From left to right: Chloe McClay as Josie Bissett (Jane), Ryan Bruce as Grant Show (Jake), Frank Bailey as Andrew Shue (Billy) and Ciara Hanna as Heather Locklear (Amanda).
Joseph Coleman as Doug Savant (Matt), Brandon Barash as Thomas Calabro (Michael) and Ali Cobrin as Daphne Zuniga (Jo)
Lanie McAuley as Amy Locane (Sandy), Chelsea Hobbs as Laura Leighton (Sydney), Rebecca Dalton as Courtney Thorne-Smith (Allison), Karissa Tyner as Vanessa A. Williams (Rhonda) and Teagan Vincze as Marcia Cross (Kimberly).
I’m thinking the casting for Laura Leighton (Chelsea Hobbs), Doug Savant (Joseph Coleman) and Vanessa Williams (Karissa Tyner) is pretty spot on! Check out some of the behind the scenes shots below via Chelsea Hobbs, Rebecca Dalton, Ciara Hanna and Ali Cobrin’s Instagram accounts…
The original cast are keeping somewhat quiet on the subject though Daphne Zuniga (Jo Reynolds) has reached out to her new alter-ego via twitter…
“The Unauthorized Melrose Place Story” airs on October 10, Lifetime.
