tAlexandra Chando, 19, was a student at Manhattan College in New York City when she decided to take break from school and try her hand being a professional actor. Having spent her entire life up to that point participating in school plays and local theatre, Alexandra seemed destined for the stage and screen. When she auditions for a new regular role on As the World Turns, she nails the part and is spun into the world of day time soaps. Although she is nervous at first, Alexandra is able to adapt to her new environment at As the World Turns, and is quickly embraced by both the cast and crew as well as regular fans of the show. As time goes on, Alexandra begins to transform into a daytime diva , a long way from the small-town high school actress she once was. It's not long before she's attending red carpet events, and finding herself the subject of stories in various soap-related media outlets.
The Rock 'N' Roll Soldiers are, if you couldn't have guessed by their name, an up-and-coming rock band from the small town of Eugene, Oregon. Marty, Oliver, Kevin and Evan formed the Soldiers in high school with hopes of hitting it big, and leading the lives of the rock stars they grew up following. With a die hard work ethic and constant tour schedule, Marty and the boys have managed to gain enough attention to warrant a recording contract from a major label. Unfortunately for the Rock 'N' Roll Soldiers, getting signed to a label isn't the end of all their problems, but the start of long path filled with hard work. In order to break their name outside of Oregon, the Soldiers are going to have to live out of a small tour van for months at a time, worry about recording a radio-friendly single, and even worse, 'sell out' to corporate sponsors in order to make some extra loot. The Rock 'N' Roll Soldiers hope that getting signed to a label will be the big break they've been looking for, and not just another pothole on the road to fame.
