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.

I totally agree. So happy I still get to see Maura West on General Hospital. Such a wonderful actress.

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.

ATWT and OLTL Alum Mary Linda Rapelye Passes Away at 76

She got her soap start as Faith Kipling, the wife of the evil Dr. Ivan Kipling on One Life to Live (1979-1980) and later came to Oakdale and As the World Turns as lawyer, Maggie Crawford (1980-1985), and now comes sad news that actress Mary Linda Rapelye has died from a battle with cancer.

Mary Linda actually passed away last month on April 5th, and according to The Booth Bay Register she was surrounded by her her brother Gardiner Rapelye Jr. and dear friends Julianna and Will Anderson by her side.  She was 76 years old at the time of her death.

Mary Linda started a long career of acting when she was only 5.  After her part in an outdoor production at The Starlight Theater in her home town, Kansas City, Missouri, she climbed off the stage and sat in her father’s lap. This was to be the beginning of her work spanning nearly eight decades on stage, screen and television. She is best known for her roles in Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood, and of course, OLTL and ATWT.  She also made a memorable appearance in the role of Irina Galliulin in the Star Trek: The Original Series third season episode “The Way to Eden”.

A Memorial and Celebration of Life is being planned this July for MaryLinda in Booth Bay.

Below is a tribute video featuring clips and moments from Rapelye’s career.
