Soap fans are in for a real treat on next week’s One Life to Live when the Statesville prison break takes front and center stage depositing some of the show’s greatest all-time baddies smack dab in front of, and causing havoc for, some of the major citizens of Llanview! Among them, the fantastic Catherine Hickland as Lindsay Rappaport who  is back, and whose long running feud with Nora Buchanan is soap-legendary!

Hickland spoke with TV Guide to reveal some details on her return, and for sticking up for the fans right after and through the gut-wrenching cancellation and decision by ABC to rid the daytime line-up of two landmark shows: All My Children, and One Life to Live.   Here are a few excerpts below!

Catherine on how Lindsay makes a beeline to former flame Bo Buchanan after the prison break:  “It’s sort of ambiguous. I’m not being coy. I really couldn’t tell from the script. But, yeah, I got to work with Bob and Hillary B. Smith [Nora] and Ty Treadway a bit. For me, it was a satisfying ending for my character. I liked the idea of playing Lindsay one more time. That character has a place in history on that show, that’s for sure. Though, at that point, Prospect Park was still planning to take the show to the Internet. I was happy to wrap it up, or leave it open. Whatever they had in mind.”

Catherine on being so vocal on her blog and throughout the devastating news of the cancellations of AMC & OLTL, and taking part in the picket lines:  ” I was happy to be out there! I didn’t really care if I ever acted again so, for me, it was no big deal. Everyone else at OLTL and AMC was under gag order and had the fear of God put into them. There was nothing keeping me from telling the truth.  When I saw our wonderful viewers being yanked around like that I just couldn’t take it anymore. They are the bread and butter of this business, the very reason soaps have remained on the air for decades, and they deserved to know what’s really going on. I guess that was the reason behind my snap, so to speak. I just didn’t have any idea it would be so far reaching and cause such a fuss. I was just saying my thoughts, blogging like I have for ages. I spent a lot of years at OLTL being told, “Don’t say this. Don’t say that.” This is America, may I remind everybody. To not be able to speak your mind is very frustrating. If you don’t let your feelings out, that’s where sickness lies. I had already moved on. It’s not like I felt anyone owed me a career. It wasn’t about that at all. I just felt that the audience was owed simple respect, something we all owe each other — in business and in life.”

Are you excited to see Catherine as Lindsay for an encore performance next week?  Let us know!

Looking forward to seeing you Catherine. I appreciate your openess and sticking up for the fans. Along with being heartbroken has come the frustration of not hearing what is really going on. It was very obvious there was a gag order in place and of cousre I understand the pressure many must have felt. Still I appreciate hearing your thoughts on the potential (have not given up) ending of our soaps.

The soaps are off for good! The phoney deal fell through. ABC owes us two 2 hours movies, one for each show, to end the shows right!

The deal fell through so the soaps won’t be coming back! I think the whole thing was a fake to begin with! ABC owes us two 2 hour daytime movies, one for each show, to end them right! Thanks for everything Catherine!

I loved Lindsey Rappaport. Catherine is cor rect. She does have a place in History on that show. I didn’t think she would last very long on that show, BC it was evident that Bo and Nora would be a couple that the show couldn’t break up forever….. and THEN, what would Lindsey do? Lindsey lasted ALONG time on that show BC she was so DAMN good.
