Kassie DePaiva has played a trouble making bad girl on One Life to Live since December 1993. Before that, she starred as Chelsea Reardon on Guiding Light from 1986 to 1991.
DePaiva has a background in music, having worked at Nashville's Opryland as a singer and, at the age of 18, debuted as a soloist at the legendary Grand Ole Opry, performing two songs. Soon enough, though, Kassie caught the acting bug; she enrolled in Indiana University and, later, at the University of California at Los Angeles to study theater.
DePaiva is married to former One Life to Live co-star James DePaiva (Max Holden), and gave birth to son James Quentin on May 12, 1997.
