Casting News: Claire-Louise Sedgley joins the cast of THE BAY

Gregori J. Martin announces the casting of Claire-Louise Sedgley.

We've decided to go in a different direction with Charles Shaughnessy's character on our series. While he will still be playing the Captain of the police force, he will no longer be playing middle-eastern. His new character will be Englishman Captain Elliot Sanders. To play his daughter, Isabella Sanders on the seri...es is soap opera newcomer and Shakespearean trained actress, Claire-Louise Sedgley. The English-born actress played a leading role in Gregori J. Martin's film LIGHTS OUT. We welcome Ms. Sedgley to the cast. Marie Wilson who was formerly slated to play the part, will still be part of the cast in another role. Character TBA. We apologize for any confusion but we're sure you'll be pleased with the changes!

Ilene Kristen Discusses THE BAY on Daytime Confidential Podcast

Ilene Kristen appeared on the latest episode of the "Daytime Confidential Podcast" and discussed how her role on THE BAY came about: "I worked with Gregori Martin before. We did a movie, Manhattanites, and it's kind of a natural fit because we've really worked together very, very closely before. So when that was coming up, of course I would assume he would ask me and ask other people who worked on Manhattanites as well. We had a very successful working relationship. It was a very ambitious movie. It was done on a shoestring and we had a really good time doing it."
