Van Hansis caught up with We Love Soaps at the Nuke-a-Paloooza Event and revealed that he is working on a new project which is quite the departure from Oakdale’s, Luke Snyder.  Van is working on a horror film called, Occupant! The actor who has been one of As the World Turns most popular characters also chatted about life Post-Oakdale.

Hansis on his upcoming motion picture project: “It’s a horror film in the vein of [Roman] Polanski, that is, it’s a psychological thriller. It’s a lot of fun. It’s a big departure from Luke.  The character is nothing like Luke at all. I’m excited to try something new and I’ve never done a film before. We’re in pre-production now, and the whole process that comes into play is so excited.”

Hansis on life After the World stops turning: “I’m excited about the future.  Especially since they gave us six months notice. They gave us time to make peace with the ending.  I’m very much looking forward to what is next in my life.”

Poor van hansis, he never won a Daytime Emmy despite all the media hype surrounding him. And now he’s not even pre nominated. Oh well, always the bridesmaid, never the bride. Wouldn’t it be hilarious if he ends up on B&B as a Thomas recast, especially after he double dissed either Ronn Moss or Kyle Lowder by saying he doesn’t know their names (diss number 1) but he’d like to meet one of them bec of their acting clips on the Soup (diss number 2)! Hansis has always come forth as a diva, especially when he’d always look glum and… Read more »

Wow, that was a century ago, so thanks for obsessively referring to it. LOL!

BTW I have written abt other soaps: B&B, Y&R, OLTL specifically.

And I write abt primetime shows like DH, Modern Family and Project Runway.

Everyone does say that the nuke fans are the most psychotic, rabid and delusional that they can’t take any criticism of either or both actors.

Seriously, if you can’t take criticism of your fave actors, you need to thicken your skin.

It was half a century ago, but you’re still using the same old tired argument?

I’m so in love with VAN HANSIS. Van is a very talented actor and a sweet and generous person. Van is wonderful! I love his beautiful portrayal of Luke Snyder and I’m enjoying Luke’s current storyline. I am very happy that VAN is filming a movie and I can’t wait to watch it. Please, Michael Fairman, tell us more about VAN HANSIS in your great site! Thank you!

As the World Turns and Guiding Light Favorite, Lisa Brown, Passes Away at 67

(UPDATED) In just more heartbreaking news in the soap world in 2021, we have lost another beloved performer.  Lisa Brown, who was so noteworthy for her spunky and emotional turns as Guiding Light’s Nola Reardon from 1980-1985, and later as Iva Snyder on As the World Turns from 1986-1994, has died.

Brown passed away this week on November 24th at the age of 67 following a brief illness.  The news came via the As the World Turns Facebook Fan Group and Soap Opera Digest.

This comes just two months later following the death of her former on-screen love interest Michael Tylo (Ex-Quinton, Guiding Light), who passed away in late September.

Those that followed Lisa’s career know she also starred in the Broadway Musical 42nd Street, while still playing Nola each and every day on Guiding Light.

She is survived by her children: James “Buddy” Nielsen, and daughter Victoria from her first husband Tom Nielsen (Ex-Floyd, GL) in addition to her two grandchildren, Penelope Ruiz-Nielsen and Brayden Hopf, and her second husband Brian Neary.

Brown’s on-screen ATWT daughter, Martha Byrne  (Ex-Lily) simply tweeted, “My heart is broken.”

On Friday, Lisa’s son, Buddy Nielsen, posted a touching tribute to his mother, where he revealed that she passed away due to cancer.

Buddy shared: “My Mom passed away the day before Thanksgiving after a very quick battle with cancer. This all happened really fast and wasn’t expecting it. I’ve been MIA as I’ve been back and forth between LA and NJ as she has been in and out of the hospital the last couple weeks. This dream we live, we are all subject to the suffering, aging and death. It’s not to be morose but to understand that we have finite time and must take care with what we do and how we do it. To be able to be with someone at their last breath is truly beautiful. We must not fear death as without it we would never be born and experience the 10,000 joys and 10,000 sorrows. Our existence is both small and vast all at the same time. We are tiny but immense. I know she is here but no longer in her physical form, what we do in love we leave in death. My beautiful daughter and unborn son are her legacy.”

Share your condolences to Lisa’s family, and let us know of your remembrances of this wonderful actress who gave us so many memorable moments throughout her career via the comment section below. But first, watch Lisa in some of her classic scenes from ATWT and GL.

ATWT Favorite, Jon Hensley, Releases New Single ‘I See Heaven’

Former As the World Turns, and The Bold and the Beautiful star, Jon Hensley (Ex-Holden Snyder and Ex-Dr. Meade), has announced not only the launch of his new website, but his new single called “I See Heaven”.

According to Hensley, the new track is a 9/11 20th anniversary song.  Through the holiday season, Jon is noting that you can make donations in lieu of the song and he will take a portion of the proceeds and donate them to various 9/11 charities.

In his welcome note on his site, Jon shares: “Welcome to my site, I am very excited about my new project. Most of you might remember me as Holden, it’s been a long time since the good old days in Oakdale. Who knows maybe they bring them back some day. As the World Re-turns?  After the show did end in 2010, I slowly started getting back into music. I spent some time playing in Las Vegas and decided a year or so ago it was time to release my debut album. Over the last few years, I wrote many songs with my great friend and producer Alan Schwartz. And my 1st single, I See Heaven (911 20th anniversary song) is now available as a download. Sing Out Revolution, my title track which was inspired by the Tennessee Williams quote on my home page, is a revolution on love. I’m planning to release SOR by Xmas 2021. And the full record by early 2022. Join my mailer for updates and thanks for listening!”

So, excited to listen to more of Jon’s music? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
