The Second Pick
Although Bree appeared on the show in 2004, she actually auditioned for “One Life to Live” in the late 1990s. However, she was denied participation in the series by the directors due to her appearance being similar to that of Erin Torpey, who was back then portraying Jessica Buchanan. She was assigned the role when Erin chose to leave the show.
