Days of our Lives continues to take steps to add diversity to its canvas. The show recently released a casting call to find an experienced African American actress for a new contract role.
The casting call, for a 30something female currently being called "Shauna," is described as "upscale, professional confident and sexy. Her beauty is only matched by her intelligence and heart. She is forthcoming and authentic and captivates wherever she goes."
Fans shouldn't expect to see this new character anytime soon. Due to Days of our Lives' hectic production schedule, Shauna more than likely will not appear on-screen before the end of summer.
The NBC soap's search for Shauna comes about a month after it released a casting call for the role of Micah, a 20-to-30-year-old "gorgeous" African American male.
"Micah is charismatic confident and charming without even trying," the casting notice states. "Ladies want to date him and men want to be him."
