Kevin Spirtas Added to ‘Winterthorne' Cast

Kevin Spirtas
Kevin Spirtas has been tapped to play Dominic Delacort in the new online series, Winterthorne. The character is described as a major player within the family. Dominic has been charged by the Winterthorne women to train their husbands and future husbands in the art of making candy. There is a sense of wonder within him alongside a sense of true bitterness for being controlled by them.

"Kevin is a wonderful actor,” says series creator and Emmy nominee Michael Caruso, “And I think what struck me about him as perfect for the part of Dominic is the sense of mischievousness he possesses. Dominic is a character that has been put in a very specific position of power by the Winterthorne women, and yet he's powerless at the same time and we really see him struggle with that."

"Kevin is not only a delightful person, but an incredibly talented actor,” adds series star Martha Madison, “I loved watching him play the devious character of Craig Wesley on Days! He made it fun to root for the bad guy!"
