Nafessa Williams was happy enough when she landed a three-episode role on "One Life to Live," but that has turned into a four-year contract with the ABC soap.

Williams, a West Philadelphia native and Lamberton High grad, debuts on the show at 2 p.m. tomorrow playing Deanna Ford, "someone from James Ford's past," which is all she would reveal about her character.

"This is more than I ever dreamed of," Williams told us yesterday. "I'm super excited and really grateful for the experience," she said.

Williams, who is in her early 20s, studied criminal justice at West Chester University and interned in the homicide unit of the District Attorney's Office.

Last year she appeared in a Philly-shot drama called "Streets."
