This is the most exciting series. Watching all these favorites again is such a treat. We need this so badly…just anything…to relieve the problems we are facing in the “new normal.” What better way than to love every second of these great interviews. Thanks to Alan for thinking of this and following through so brilliantly.

This will be the ONE to watch. Hubbard is just great. Why, oh why, is this woman NOT working on one of the remaining four soaps? She could simply read the phone book and would be far more interesting than the “real” dialogue the actors spout on the remaining four shows.

Imagine Hubbard playing a successful handbag or shoe designer on B&B, with her family and devoted staff in tow. Would be just the “shot in the arm” that B&B needs to make it remotely interesting.

Well, she’s 86. She might not be interested in a lot of work. She has given us so much entertainment and extraordinary performances through the years… If she wants to take it easy now, she has certainly earned the right!

I was so disappointed to miss Martha and Elizabeth. I LOVE them. Watching them on ATWT (my all-time favorite soap) for all those years was a highlight of my day. I still miss them after all this time.

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.

Share your remembrances and condolences for Mary Linda in the comment section.
