Carmen LoPorto given the ax by One Life to Live!

As many viewers saw during One Life to Live’s bravura Christmas episode last week,  there was a slightly older Sam in the Manning household, when the show recast the youngster with Patrick Gibbons Jr.  However, now comes word that Jack Manning played for over three and half years by actor, Carmen LoPorto, has been let-go to make way, we presume, for a SORAS’d Jack to mix it up with this dysfunctional family.

LoPorto made the announcement on his Facebook page stating: “I got a call this week that they SORAS’ed Jack and I am no longer a member of the Manning Family. It’s been fun and an experience that I will never forget.  Thank You All Again. Here’s to bigger and better things to come in 2011.”

There has been no official announcement made by the series as of yet, as to who will take over the eldest son of Todd Manning.  On-Air On-Soaps wishes Carmen well in all his next endeavors, as he did a great job as the chip-off-the-old block  young son of  Trevor St. John (Todd Manning).

This is a horrible decision! Carmen had more talent in his little finger
than some other ones I could mention. He played Todd’s son
perfectly! In fact, they should have used him more! I hate when they
do the aging kids syndrome. I love it when they can grow with the
show like Kristen, Eddie, and Kimberly McCollough. There’s not need
to age them when they have a perfectly wonderful actor in the role! As
I said, this is a horrible decision. Carmen played the perfect Jack and
he should not have been given the ax.

I was in shock when I read that One Life to Live made the decision to let Carmen go. Epic, epic, epic mistake. This young actor was such a find—a talented scene stealer who has been the PERFECT miniature Todd Manning—I thought for sure that they knew what they had in him and that he was a shoe-in to be one of those rare kids on soaps who got to ‘age naturally’ and who would be on the canvas for many years to come, along the lines of Kristen Alderson. They’re not going to find a fit that good again, in my opinion, and I am extremely disappointed that they’ve decided to take this path with our Jack Manning. That talented young man will be missed on the Llanview canvas!

Really gonna miss the old Jack, played by Carmen…look forward to seeing more of the new Sam. Talk about a scene stealer…He stole the show on the Christmas episode…and bravo to the writers of that episode…So cleverly written!

Jessica Tuck Returns This Week To General Hospital

There will be a Cassandra Pierce sighting in Port Charles, which means one of the best actresses we know, Jessica Tuck, will be back on your screens this week on ABC’s General Hospital.

Tuck, who became soap-famous for her role as Megan on One Life to Live from 1988-1992 and then went on to primetime television roles returns to the canvas as the evil Cassandra, a role she debuted on GH back in 2017.  Viewers last saw her pop during Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha’s (Sofia Matteson)vacation.

But this time look for Tuck to mix-it up with GH icon Genie Francis (Laura) in some major showdown scenes, when she holds the mayor and Curtis (Donnell Turner) at gunpoint on the Haunted Star.  Will these two be able to get the on-the-run villainess locked up for good? Don’t necessarily count on it.

Of course, a man who both Cassandra and Laura have an interest in bringing down, Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) plays heavy into the story. But will Cassandra do a double-cross of a double-cross? Who else may get a dose of something potentially lethal that she has been concocting?

Jessica told Soap Opera Digest that when she found out she would be working with Genie Francis; “I was like Woo-hoo! Hot diggity!  I mean, like many people, I have been a fan of hers forever and ever and ever.  It was fun to meet the person behind the character I’ve gotten to know.”
