I can’t wait until Friday. These are a real treat each weekend. I’ve kept up with Van Harris’s projects over the years, but it will be good to hear the latest for all of them. And then Alan’s questions are perfect for discussion (e.g., do you remember your first day).

These reunion interviews are great. When can we expect to have Larry Bryggman, Elizabeth Hubbard, Kathryn Hayes, Eileen Fulton, Marie Masters, Patricia Bruder, or Kathleen Widdoes participating? I appreciate the actors who are showing up but, to be candid, the actors who spent decades on the show likely can offer more interest observations than someone like Chando or Kaba, who were on the show less than 5 years in the “dying decade.” My favorite interview so far was the first one with Don Hastings and Martha Byrne.

What about Kim Zimmer. She brought Reva Shaye Lewis to life. What a character.
I first started listening to on the radio when I was a young girl and continued from 1st to last tv showing.

I also listened to GL on the radio, and remember them referring to Billy in the playpen, and later after he grew up, they called him Ed, Dr.Ed Bauer.
I also listened to a lot of others. Do you remember Lorenzo Jones, Portia Faces Life, When A Girl Marries,Backstage Wife, to name a few? Those were the days. Fifteen minutes each, all day

Enjoyed the conversation even with some technical issues. Would love to know the actor that Van said had his script on the floor as a prompt for his lines. The others wanted to know who it was, and Van said he’d tell them after. Like everyone, they love gossip. It’s almost like it wasn’t ten years ago, and they could pick up where they left off with ATWT. The thing I love the most about these is when they are trying to remember something (like the coffee shop Java), then one person remembers and they are all excited. And everyone… Read more »

Do you remember seeing Don Hastings as a very young man on Edge Of Night? Seems to me he played Mike Carr’s first wife’s brother. Memory not so good, was a long time ago. Would also love seeing old episodes of Edge, great show, shades of Perry Mason.

I only watched the opening and closing of The Edge of Night in the ’60s. I loved the dramatic music and the announcer. I don’t think these episodes exist anymore … what a shame. There is a montage of the openings through the years on this website; it was fascinating to hear the music and changes through the years.

I watched The Secret Storm with my mother in the ’60s. I started watching The Edge of Night in the late ’70s, and watched it until the end.

As the World Turns Alum Rita Walter Dead at 71

We’re still losing so many beloved soap opera actors as 2022 comes to a close. Now comes word that former As the World Turns alum, Rita Walter (nee McLaughlin) passed away at the age of 71.  Walter had been diagnosed with Multifocal Glioblastoma, an extremely aggressive form of terminal brain cancer.

Rita had an 11-year-run as Oakdale’s Carol Deming Hughes Stallings Andropoulos Frazier.

The former actress-turned-optician, died on Christmas.  Rita’s brother, David McLaughlin revealed the news on the 26th which also happened to be the anniversary of Walter’s exit from the defunct CBS soap opera in 1981.

In his posting on Facebook, McLaughlin shared: “My sweet, loving sister Rita was called to Jesus today on Christmas day, his birthday. She was a well known actress as well as dedicated server of the Lord Jesus. May you rest in peace Sis, I love you forever. You’ve taken my heart with you.”

Before playing good girl, Carol Deming, who always found herself in distress as only a good heroine could do, Rita started her career as Patty Duke’s double on The Patty Duke Show, before getting her first foray into soaps with a role on The Secret Storm as Wendy Phillips.

We clearly remember when on ATWT, Carol was married to Jay Stallings, but Jay was having an affair behind her back. Carol also had failed relationships and marriages to Tom Hughes and Steve Andropolous.  Eventually, Carol left Oakdale after falling in love and marrying Reverend Norman Frazier.  In a case of life imitating art, Rita married Reverend Normal Walter in 1976.

Walter is survived by her three children, Brian, Jill, and Amy, and her husband, Reverend Norman.
