It's lights, camera, action for Kourtney Kardashian!

On the March 28 episode of ABC's One Life to Live, the Kourtney and Kim Take New York star makes her acting debut as lawyer Kassandra Kavanaugh, who gets into an altercation at a gym and is arrested along with bad boy Cristian Vega (David Fumero).

For Kardashian, 31, appearing on the iconic daytime soap is a dream come true.

"Growing up, I would always pretend to be sick so I could stay home from school and watch One Life to Live!" she tells UsMagazine.com. So did her time on set live up to her expectations? "It was so much fun!" Kardashian enthuses.

Rehearsing her lines with pal Adrienne Bailon, Kardashian tells Us she did have one worry while filming: Her kissing scene with sexy star Fumero.

"That made me nervous," she confesses. "But after the kiss, he was like, 'I can't remember my line!'"

Despite her jitters, once the cameras rolled, Kardashian's costars say she was a natural actress.

"[She] nailed her lines," OLTL's Kassie DePaiva says of Kardashian, who brought 15-month-old son Mason to the set and was in and out of the November 11 shoot in New York City in just three hours. "She's welcome back anytime!"
