|Portrayed by|| Ryan Templeton (1979) |
Katie Rich (2004)
Cassie was a then teenage girl who was friends and schoolmates with Chris and John. But actually she was deeply in love with Chris, but he wasn't interested. Cassie saw Daniela from a movie Chris and John made. She noticed something different, though she couldn't tell why. She became increasingly jealous when she realized Chris had liked Daniela. Though it's not stated how long she's known Chris, she's known him enough to know his father was know to be abusive to him. On the night of the prom, she apparently came by herself but was dancing with John.
She was shocked to see Chris come, alone and beat up. She confronted him about his dad, though Chris admitted his dad beat him. Chris was more concerned that he beat "her" (Daniela) and made her go away. Cassie tried one more time to win over Chris. She tried comforting him to get his attentions and said "she's always been here for him". Upset and tired, Chris told Cassie to stop and leave him alone. Furious and wanting him to feel bad that he lost his chance with her, she walked away and went to dance with John.
However, it somewhat backfired, as Chris watched it, it made him miss Daniela and left the prom to go and see her. In 2004, Lilly and Scotty found her to ask her questions about Daniela. To coax her to remember, Lily said Chris asked about her and wanted to know what happened to her after prom. She stated "I ended up pregnant". Though it's never stated who the father of her baby was, it's hinted she might have slept with John. As she was last seen dancing very close to John to make Chris jealous. And given John's personality as a teen, they most likely slept together.
