Michael Park has been very much alive, singing and dancing in the Broadway revival of HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING. He has been with the show since its opening a year or so ago. Park strikes me as a theatre guy and I read somewhere his family is based in the New York area. It is a shame more television production does not take place in NYC for there is a wealth of top talent. Maybe we will see Park on SMASH next season?

He could come on Y&R as Jack Snyder. Wasn’t it established that Jack and Michael Baldwin were old friends? Besides, Genoa City could use a good detective.

Y&R doesn’t even know what to do with it’s current cast of characters. No need to add another talent into the mix just to be wasted.

They should have a serial killer in G.C. and kill off Cane, Lily, Daniel, Gloria, Jeffrey, Eden, Kevin, Carmine, Daisy, Ricky, Tucker, Vicboria, Esther, Murphy, Angelo, and Angelina and then Jack Snyder is brought in to catch the killer.

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.
