Way back in September 2021, Henry Joseph Samiri (Douglas, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) teased an exciting new role, and now fans will finally be able to watch it! THE WATCHFUL EYE premieres on Freeform on Monday, Jan. 30, with the first two episodes of the Hitchcockian thriller airing at 9 and 10:00 p.m. ET!
Mariel Molino stars as Elena, a young woman hired to work as a nanny for a wealthy family in New York City where she finds herself thrust into a world of deadly secrets and lies. Samiri is playing Jasper Ward, the young child she’s tasked with caring for, nicknamed “The Golden Heir.”
Samiri first joined the cast of B&B in 2019 and after a temporary recast in August 2022, returned in October of that year. And the talented young actor has been keeping very busy even while appearing on the CBS soap. He has guest-starred in episodes of primetime series like 9-1-1: LONE STAR, AMERICAN HORROR STORY, HACKS, and most recently, CSI: VEGAS.
Originally titled THE NANNY while it was first starting production, the title of the mystery series was changed to THE WATCHFUL EYE. With the wealthy family plotting against each other and a murder hanging over them all, what part does little Jasper play in the unfolding tale? Check out the trailer for THE WATCHFUL EYE below, and be sure to tune in on Monday nights on Freeform! (Streaming on Hulu starting the following day!)
