While we can’t have our One Life to Live back, but we can now see some of our all-time favorites on an upcoming episode of ABC’s hit series Castle!

News broke Friday night courtesy of Kassie DePaiva and Nathan Fillion on Twitter!  First, DePaiva noted that she and none other than Tuc Watkins were currently in production on an episode of Castle.  Fillion followed up with a tweet stating: “22 years ago, I was 22 years old, and working my ass off with these two. Thanks for doing this, you guys.”  In addition, Darlene Vogel who played Dr. Lanie McGiver in Llanview also appears in the upcoming episode, and she also tweeted about the One Life reunion with a photo (see pic right) and related:  “Coming soon #OneLifetoLive #reunion #Castle @KassieDePaiva @tucwatkins @NathanFillion”

DePaiva, of course played Llanview’s infamous Blair Cramer Manning, while Watkins played bubbling ex-con man David Vickers, and Fillion played Erika Slezak’s (Ex-Vikiu) son, Joey Buchanan!

TV Line also related some intel on the Castle episode in which the Llanview foursome appear noting: “Ahough unconfirmed by ABC, it appears that Watkins and DePaiva will appear in Episode 10, “Witness for the Prosecution” as Roger and Joanna Mathis, marrieds who get pulled into a murder investigation. Roger worked as a cameraman for the deceased, while Joanna turns out to be a fan of Castle’s books. (Vogel’s role is unclear at this time.)”

So what do you think of Nathan Fillion welcoming Kassie, Tuc and Darlene to Castle? Excited to hear the news? Will you be checking out the episode? Comment below!

I may also MBmomof3. I’m not sure since I don’t trust anything done by the alphabet people. Still, it’s great to know all of them working again. I’m so sorry Kassie DePaiva isn’t going to be on Days anymore. It’s such a loss to the show. I have really missed seeing Tuc Watkins. He’s great.

Oh, how I miss our beloved One Life to Live!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I continue to be impressed with how Nathan Fillion and the people at Castle remember and respect Daytime actors and find guest spots for many of them. I was thinking of the soap opera-themed show they did a few years back with Rebecca Budig and Cameron Mathison. I know alot of Y&R actors have done Castle, and A Martinez once guest starred on it as well. I love Tuc Watkins and Kassie DePaiva and I’m looking forward to seeing them on Castle.

I will have to also admit, that I will break my ABC boycott and watch this one episode! Will be nice to see these guys all together, even though they are not playing our beloved characters from OLTL! I wished Nathan Fillion could pull this off more often with other OLTL characters. Vicki, Dorian, Bo! Oh how I miss OLTL!

Thank you, for your direct post, Nancy. I still feel so shamefaced for my misunderstanding. So, I think you have forgiven me? I hope?
I am glad we will both enjoy seeing these beloved actors.

perhaps a spike in the ratings for this particular episode might resonate through the halls of ABCD daytime?

That is great they are together again, and it’s great that Kassie got another big gig. She deserves a better character than Eve.

Love Castle…goes back to Nathan Fillion being in some of my all-time favorite shows Firefly, Serenity, and Buffy Vampire Slayer…and bringing some of the in-references and actors from these series into Castle. And then there was his stint as boy-toy to Dorian Lord. And speaking of the soaps. If you look at all the guests over the years on IMBD you have tons from current (Jake/Jason& Hayden) and past GH as well as other soaps…probably an ABC perk. But even Nikki, Ray Wise, Stepphie, Adam and others I don’t know of because I’m not as up-to-date on all soap characters/actors… Read more »

I am ecstatic. I miss OLTL more than I can say. I would give anything to bring it back. I also like Castle very much, & of course love Nathan. He was gr8 on OLTL, & even more so on Castle. I love that he is bringing some of his former castmates to appear on his show. I love seeing all of them acting together again. Thank u Nathan & Castle. Keep up the awesome work on the show. Looking forward 2 more soap opera stars guest appearing on this amazing show.

Great! Looking forward to it! Castle is a favorite in my household, and this brings an extra special element to it. Kudos to Nathan Fillion for NEVER forgetting his soap opera roots, as he so often has soap stars on his wonderful show. I look forward to the OLTL reunion with Cassie, Tuc and Nathan!

Lamon Archey and Sal Stowers Exit Days of our Lives

Coming up on Days of our Lives, both Lani and Eli Grant will be written off the canvas to facilitate the departures of Lamon Archey (Eli) and Sal Stowers (Lani).

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Archey who stepped into the role in 2017, has made the decision to leave the long-running NBC soap opera, and will last air the week of July 4.

As for Stowers, she will last air on Friday, July 1st, and given her current storyline, it looks like Lani, who has confessed to murdering TJ (William Christian), will either be sent to prison, or will exit Salem with Eli.

This would not be the first-time that Stowers has departed DAYS.  After her debut in 2015, she was off the Salem canvas for a six-month break in 2016, before returning to the show through 2022.

We will share more information on Lamon and Sal’s exits as it comes to light.

It was about to come true, until I tested positive for Covid yesterday afternoon. I’m so disappointed that I won’t be able to celebrate with everyone on Friday. I’ve cried lots of tears.  Thankfully, I’m asymptomatic. I’m super grateful no one in our home is sick. What a blessing.  To my Daytime community, have the best time. Wish I could be there but I’ll be watching from home and cheering on all of the nominees! Y&R bring home the gold! Love you all! And to everyone at CBS and Sony thank you for everything. So grateful to play Abby. @youngandrestlesscbs.  To my amazing parents, I’m so sorry that this weekend has fallen apart. I was so excited to attend the awards with you.
