KASSIE DEPAIVA
Character: Blair Cramer Holden

The beautiful Blair Cramerís presence in Llanview means only one thing: Trouble. As played by actress Kassie DePaiva, Blair continues to connive her way through the lives of others as she tries to attain the power and prestige she desperately desires. Her priority, however, remains her daughter, Starr and her husband, Max. One Life to Live marked Kassieís return to daytime television: She played good-girl Chelsea Reardon on Guiding Light from 1986 to 1991. Born and raised in Kentucky with two older brothers and a younger sister, Kassie worked at Nashville, Tennesseeís Opryland as a singer and, at the age of 18, debuted as a soloist at the legendary Grand Ole Opry, performing two songs. While working at Opryland, she realized that she wanted to entertain. Towards that end, she enrolled in Indiana University and later, at the University of California at Los Angeles, to study theater.

While attending UCLA, she became a member of a four-part harmony band called Newport, which performed in the Los Angeles, San Diego and Las Vegas areas. Kassie ultimately dropped out of college to take advantage of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: To travel with the USO on its Orient tour to Japan, Korea and Okinawa. Shortly after her return to the United States, Kassie sang back-up for soul singer Bobby Womack during two United States and one Great Britain tour. Not long afterwards, she landed her first professional acting role, as Bobbie Jo in the feature film, Evil Dead II. Kassie has guest-starred on episodes of Melrose Place and the syndicated series Baywatch and Timetrax. Kassie is married to One Life to Live co-star James DePaiva (Max Holden), and gave birth to son James Quentin on May 12, 1997. -from ABC Daytime

KASSIE STAR TALK

Q: What do you sing in the shower?
ĒAnything thatís on my mind at the time. I tend to get a song in my mind and sing it over and over and over again until I hear another song. Iím not a show tune kind of girl. I like country music, and pop music. I am so musically out of touch, Iím like an old person. Whatever was playing in the Ď80s I know; anything in the Ď90s and the late Ď80s, I donít. Iím very stuck in the past musically.Ē
