I started watching ATWT a few years ago after learning that Julie Pinson had joined the show. In the meantime, I have fallen headfirst in love with every single character on ATWT, with Barbara, Paul and Carly among my personal favorites !! Although I dread the upcoming farewell next week, I find comfort in knowing that I have several decades of ATWT episodes to catch up on….

its been a little disappointing that they have focused on Chris and Katie so much this last month – they pushed the relationship on us so fast – wanted to see more of Jack, Carly, and the others.

Who will I miss the most in Oakdale? The three characters who’ve brought charm, beauty, humor and intelligence to World Turns: Barbara, Nancy and Kim. Their magnificence will be missed by millions.

I’ll miss the collective ensemble of the Hughes Family (including Eileen Fulton’s Lisa, of course)! From the beginning, the Hugheses were the premiere family of ATWT!

I tell you, I had no idea the power of a 20 second clip until now….wow. I’ll definitely have to muster up some serious strength by the time the FINALE airs. The characters I will miss wholeheartedly are Barbara, Lucinda and Carly……oh, and of course, James!!!

The character I’ll miss the most is Luke. Luke has been a big part of my life during those five years Van Hansis played him.

Honestly the rush with Katie & Chris I get, they could have brought Chris bad sooner but than you have Katie there not ready to move on from Brad. And while Simon was kind of the rebound guy post her lost given the amount of time left with the shows ending coming they only had six months to work with were Katie & Chris’s romance storyline was concerned. And given the slight more than the last yr writers have given Katie, she as much as Jack & Carly deserves a happy ending. However that finale promo looking interesting. It seems… Read more »

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.
