David’s daughter Katie Cassidy, who is a Melrose Place alum, will be starring on a new prime time soap soon. Katie Cassidy will star with Jimmy Wolk in ABC’s drama Georgetown.
Georgetown is the story about the people behind the power brokers of Washington, DC. It centers on Andrew Pierce (Wolk), an effortlessly charming and brilliant Yale graduate and the youngest Presidential speech-writer on record. Cassidy will play Nikki, a smart and quick-witted junior staffer in the White House Communications Office with connections to the First Lady. Nikki, who is also a model, is friends and roommates with Andrew and Samantha, an idealistic young staffer with the Democratic President, daughter of a political dynasty who shares a romantic history with Andrew.
Katie Cassidy will also star this summer with Leighton Meester in Monte Carlo. David’s little girl is doing pretty well for herself! In a recent interview with Zap2it, David Cassidy bragged on his daughter a bit. Cassidy said:
“The one thing I hope and believe I’ve given her, and she has acknowledged that I have, is the foundation for a successful career. Whatever your career choice, if you do good work, everything else comes.”
