Kourtney Kardashian is ready for her close-up!

The 31-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star (and mom to son Mason, nearly 1) has signed on to appear on the ABC soap One Life to Live, E! News reports.

The first-time actress will shoot her scenes on Thursday with series regulars David Fumero and Kassie DePalva; Kardashian will not be playing herself.

"I grew up watching One Life to Live," the E! reality star says. "I hear I get into some trouble and I am looking forward to it. This may be my acting debut, but the Kardashians know a thing or two about drama."

Kardashian isn't the first celebrity to make an appearance on the long-running soap opera: previous guest stars have included Snoop Dogg, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Nelly Furtado.

Kardashian's episode of One Life to Live will air in March.
