Former Days of Our Lives Star Shayna Rose in The Jumparounds.
If you’ve been missing Shayna Rose, the spunky redhead who played Stephanie Johnson from 2006-2007, you’ll be in luck this summer.
The actress/musician has landed a new TV gig that will see her regularly appearing on screens across the country. This time around, she’ll be banging on a set of drums when she plays Marina, the drummer for a fictional teen band. Her band is called “The Jumparounds” and they’re a preschool-friendly group that Nickelodeon is basing a new summer series around. The band plays contemporary pop music and tries to teach children how to appreciate music and express their feelings in dance and song.
Shayna’s band mates will include Shout, Kiki and Twis. Her character already has her own catchphrase. Whenever Marina gets excited, she shouts, “Hip hop and pop!” The lyrics for the 30 original songs that span the series were written by executive producers and husband-and-wife team, Nadine van der Velde and Scott Kraft. This new half hour series will air this summer on Nickelodeon.
Since leaving Salem behind, Shayna has been pursuing her own music career and has also done guests spots on “Ugly Betty” and “Mad Men.”
Soap Opera Fan Blog sends her our congratulations on her new role and wish her the best of luck.
