Fans of the popular digital drama Ladies of the Lake are not only being given a second season of the stunning series, but they're also being given more soap talent. Both Days of our Lives' Robert Scott Wilson (ex-Ben Weston) and General Hospital's Marc Anthony Samuel (Felix DuBois) have been added to the cast as series regulars.
“We are so excited that @marcasart and @MrRobertScott are joining the cast of Ladies of the Lake for season 2,” wrote the series' official Twitter handle. “Welcome aboard!”
Samuel will be playing Teddy DuPree, the new husband of Lisa Roth (played by Arianne Zucker [ex-Nicole Walker, DAYS], who was recently promoted to series regular for the second season).
“Teddy is a slick, sophisticated, and wealthy business man who works for Hudson Montgomery's tech company,” previews series writer/showrunner Michael Caruso in a statement. “He basically made a deal with the devil when he married Clara and she quickly drags him into her schemes, but as with all the residents of Avalon, Teddy is in no way what he seems.”
Says Samuel via social media: “Really excited to be joining the cast of @LOTLSERIES for season 2! Can't wait to show you what's in store!!”

Meanwhile, Wilson will play Detective Ethan Wyatt, who's described as, “charming, charismatic, sexy, and deeply manipulative. He knows what he wants and he knows how to get it. This man is a far cry different from Detective Shawn Daniels [Kyle Lowder], and as the season progresses we discover Ethan's motivations for coming to Avalon and that his connection to one of the residents runs deeper than expected. He's a bad boy to the core but he's definitely not crazy. Everything he does is played out like a chess move.”
As previously reported, GH's Kathleen Gati (Dr. Obrecht) has also been added to the series' sophomore season.
Season two of Ladies of the Lake begins filming in late January. To catch up on the complete first season, check out amazon.com.
