Featuring a soundtrack of original music and music performances, Star follows three talented singers — Star (played by Jude Demorest), Alexandra (Ryan Destiny) and Simone (Brittany O’ Grady) — desperate for a new start and with ambitions of stardom, as they navigate the cut-throat music business on their road to success.

Campbell will recur as Rose Spencer, Alexandra’s beautiful, wealthy and cultivated London-born mother.
