Producers of The CW’s “The Beautiful Life” are casting for a new female recurring character, tentatively named Jane, in the wake of star Mischa Barton’s hospitalization last week, EW.com reports.
Sources told EW that the series set in the fashion business will go on whether Barton is able to take on her role as an aging model or not. The new character will also be an experienced supermodel, although not a direct substitute for the Baron role.
Production on the new drama was to have started this week but was pushed back to next week because the sets weren’t ready.
Last week Barton was placed under involuntary psychiatric hold by the Los Angeles Police Department.
