DOOL Star Moves To Prime-Time Drama
From a daytime soap opera to a prime-time TV drama may not seem like an easy move to make.
But many actors and actresses have done just that. And now Days Of Our Lives star Vanessa Estelle Williams has joined that clique. Her new gig will see the actress starring in the Fox TV show, “9-1-1,” reported Soap Hub. And the role will offer a wonderful opportunity for Vanessa to show her acting talents.
Who Does Vanessa Estelle Williams Portray On ‘9-1-1’?
As a result of her Days Of Our Lives experience, “9-1-1” producers chose Williams to portray the character of Claudette Collins.
Look for Collins to prove her strength and confidence as an experienced “9-1-1” Call Center staff member.
A veteran at the central “9-1-1” station, Claudette will guide younger employees like May Grant (Corinne Massiah) on what it takes to succeed in this challenging environment.
And from dispatchers to police officers to firefighters, Collins will interact with other “9-1-1” key staffers to help the general public as well as employees who risk their own lives to save others.
