Erika Slezak Interview – One Life to Live Farewell

In her final video interview with On-Air On-Soaps as a cast member of One Life to Live (taped at the series final press junket) six-time Daytime Emmy winner and the star of the series, Erika Slezak chats with Michael Fairman in a heart-tugging and emotional interview as Erika prepared to say goodbye to her 40 year run as Viki. In addition, Erika explains why she had decided to lend her name to the Prospect Park online project that ultimately fizzled, and what she will miss the most from her time in Llanview.

ES is a class act, all the way. I guess this interview was done before PP pulled the plug on their plans. I hope that she finds another place (soon!) that will appreciate and utilize her incredible talent. She’ll be missed.

Yes, we are still waiting for our Christmas Wish to come true! ES is a class act as well as all those who have entertained us on this Soap! OLTL is on fire and has been for a long time – I just can’t believe it is over! We can still fight for this genre! They just have to give it back to us. It can’t be over! 🙁

See, for a second I thought there was hope but now I see there isn’t. I just hope theres something, “We the fans” can do to help. I just can’t understand how there wasn’t enough ratings, ” as they claim.” I just don’t believe that. I have read somewhere that Brian Fronz yanked the show because he had a personal problem with soaps and he felt that the fans can be “retrained” to like new shows, such as The Chew and The Revolution. Now I read this online, around the time I first heard ABC was pulling All My Children… Read more »

Fine interview, but so depressing the show is not continuing, which Erika didn’t know at the time. Hard to watch, at times, knowing her hopes for the future of OLTL didn’t materialize.

She probably would have said what she said in a recent TV Guide interview: “This is pure fantasy and the audience loves it. They know it’s outrageous. They know it’s not real. It’s just fun. What really annoyed me about our cancellation was the reason we were given. We were told the daytime audience doesn’t want entertainment anymore and that they just want information. Well, that’s the biggest load of bulls–t. People always want entertainment! I’ve had so many emails from people who are really upset that soaps are being replaced with reality shows. They don’t want to watch food… Read more »

Cindy – Or Erika would have said what she said in another recent interview with Smashing Interviews where she rightly criticizes ABC and The Chew: “I’m not too pleased with ABC. ABC has let so many people down by cancelling these two shows. It’s all about money. I understand that. But, how much money are they going to make with The Chew and The Revolution? I don’t know if anybody is watching The Chew. The problem is they’re all trying to be television personalities. They scream and laugh and they talk over each other, and it makes it impossible to… Read more »

Thank you Michael for the wonderful interviews. Words cannot express the sadness I feel. I have watched both OLTL & AMC since the beginning. It feels like a whole branch of my family got on a bus that is going to crash and kill them all. The worst part is that I know in advance that they are going to die and I’ve know for months but can’t do anything to stop it.

I started watching OLTL in 1968 when I was 15 because the character’s name was Viki(spelled differently) and I had never seen a TV show with the star having my name. I got hooked immediately. While Gillian Spencer(orifginal actress) was very good, when Erika Slezak came on no one else could be Viki in my mind. Not only was she beautiful, but she had chemistry with everyone. She and Lee Paterson were amazing together, and when Joe died, I didn’t think Viki could capture that chemistry again, but Erika and Clint Richie were golden. Jerry ver Dorn also has chemistry… Read more »

Nicely stated. As for Jerry ver Dorn, one day (years ago) I had the show on, and wasn’t QUITE watching BUT was listening…. I heard a voice that sounded like Clint Richie’s. I thought, GEE…..has Clint come back, I thought he was retiring for good this time (I loved him dearly). Anyway, I look up and it’s Jerry ver Dorn. I though, this guy is going to FIT into this ROLE just fine with the viewer’s BC he sounds like Clint and he can act. He is believable. Strange bc he actually favors Asa in the face, and maks a… Read more »

Michael, how fortunate for you that you could interview Erica. There is no better actress on soaps and never will be. She has electrified us with her amazing performances, especially her many alters. She is always consistent and in control. She is the consummate actor. Just thinking of all the years that she has given us. I am sad that she as well as her fellow actors wil be gone . I do believe she will probably do Broadway. She is perfect for the stage. Also, maybe a mini-series. I will hope. Michael, you were so caring in your interview.… Read more »

After Prospect Park pulled out (somewhere around the 24th) after the Nov 18th, finale taping. it was a long…. fallout on the internet, and various soap sites, abc.com and the like. Everyday, I would seach all over the internet looking for an update from Prospect Park, THEN…………on December 7th , Prospect Park CAME BACK and annouced that they were still looking for investor’s…..(Keep in mind THIS was Dec 7, AFTER their announcement NOT to move forward). Also, I read the December 7th statement from PROSPECT PARK on… Read more »

Guest

Keep in mind that Prospect Park never confirmed this news coming from Variety Magazine. It may all be a rumor. And even if this is true, the actors will never accept to work in an non-union environment (the story suggests that PP is trying to bypass the unions). Finally, virtually all the actors from OLTL have moved on to other projects after the annoucement on November 23. So it’s fair to say that OLTL will not come back. To be honest with you, I got over the cancellation of OLTL (although Friday’s episode will be emotional). But I do encourage… Read more »

Well, I wouldn’t said that OLTL was canceled twice because the show didn’t aired elsewhere than on ABC. Passions has been canceled twice, but not OLTL.

I agree with 1loveabcsoaps that most of the backlash comes from the cancellation of OLTL rather than AMC. For every AMC fan who is angry that their show is canceled, they are two OLTL fans that fell the same that their show is being canceled. But I will give AMC and Susan Lucci their due. All My Children is probably the most popular soap opera outside the soap opera community. If you ask someone who doesn’t watch soap operas if he knows about One Life to Live or The Young and the Restless, chances are the answer will be “no”.… Read more »

Trevor St. John Talks On Becoming Y&R’s Tucker McCall

The Young and the Restless has scored a major get by nabbing Trevor St. John to join the cast of the top-rated soap opera, and just in time for the daytime drama’s 50th anniversary season.

If you caught today’s episode, it was revealed that St. John is indeed playing Tucker McCall, the son of the Grand Dame of Genoa City, Katherine Chancellor (the late Jeanne Cooper). The role of Tucker was last played by Days of our Lives’ Stephen Nichols (Steve ‘Patch’ Johnson) from 2010-2013.  Now with Tucker back in town look for fireworks, relationships renewed, new conspirators, and some major plot twists and shifty business maneuvers including his mysterious relationship with Diane Jenkins (Susan Walters). Let’s not forget, Tucker has a past with Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson), as well.

Daytime audiences know it has been a decade since Trevor appeared on the network soaps following his memorable performances and star-turn as Todd Manning/Victor Lord Jr. on One Life to Live.  St. John actually debuted in Llanview back in 2003 as “Walker Laurence”, and closed out the ABC version of One Life appearing in the final scene in 2012; when it was revealed that Victor Lord Jr. was very much alive and was being held captive by Allison Perkins.

Later in 2013, Trevor appeared for a short-run on Prospect Park’s reboot of the series.  Since that time, the talented actors has appeared in numerous films and TV series including the CW’s Roswell, New Mexico and Containment.   

Michael Fairman TV connected with St. John to get his thoughts on: his new digs in Genoa City, what he thinks of his new role and co-stars thus far, and much more.  Here’s what TSJ had to say below.

Photo: JPI

It has now been officially confirmed and revealed on Monday’s airshow, that you are indeed playing Tucker McCall. When Y&R approached you about the role, what did they tell you about the character? Did you do any Google, or You Tube research to connect the dots to any of his past relationships?

TREVOR: The only info they gave me was a broad overview of the relationships Tucker has with the other characters and their history. I didn’t do any research on my own. I’m learning on the job!

How do you view Tucker at this juncture, and from what you’ve been given to play so far in the scripts? 

TREVOR: You know, it’s strange, I prefer to never draw any conclusion about a character – my view of him – because the second I do, I’ve limited him/myself, if that makes any sense. I never want to put any unnecessary limits on myself.

Photo: JPI

What has it been like for you working with the likes of: Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Susan Walters (Diane) and Bryton James (Devon? Had you crossed paths with any of them previously in your career?

TREVOR: I had not crossed paths with any of them prior to this point. However, I’m enjoying working with each one immensely. Not only are they open and talented actors, they’re good people.

Photo: JPI

Do you think Tucker will have a difficult time reconnecting with his son, Devon?

TREVOR: Since Tucker has been away from Genoa City, it’s safe to say he has a lot of ground to cover when it comes to re-establishing relationships, most importantly with his son, Devon.  We will also see Tucker form some new alliances as well.

How was it meeting and working with Y&R icon Eric Braeden (Victor) for the first time? 

TREVOR: Eric was great. He’s strikes me as a man who knows exactly who he is and has no qualms about it. That’s the kind of person I like to be around – totally genuine and authentically themselves. I hope we get to work together often.

Photo: JPI

You knew Y&R head writer and Co-EP Josh Griffith from previously working with him.  Did that factor in to your decision to take the part of Tucker and come to Y&R?

TREVOR: Yes, I remember liking Josh as a person and his writing, so that gave me confidence I’d be in good hands on Y&R.

Photos: CW

You have appeared in numerous primetime series including Roswell, New Mexico and Containment, plus motion picture roles in The Grief of Others, In the Family, and more.  Do you have a favorite part that you wish you could sink your teeth into again? 

TREVOR: I’d love to take another crack at Leo from CONTAINMENT. He was a deeply flawed, confused character, so wouldn’t have to act at all. I could just be myself!

B&B’s Tanner Novlan (Finn) killed your character Jesse Manes in Roswell, New Mexico. Since B&B is across the hall from Y&R, have you yet to run into your ‘killer”?

TREVOR: I have not run into Tanner. Except for that he murdered me, he seemed like a decent chap.

Photo: JPI

Did your good friend, Michael Easton (ex-OLTL, now GH) offer his thoughts on your return to daytime and Y&R? What does he think about your new role at the show?

TREVOR: Michael told me what he had heard about Y&R – that EPs Tony (Morina) and Josh had created a supportive, positive atmosphere and gathered a terrific cast, director roster, writing staff, and crew that fostered creativity. It turns out what he had heard was spot on. It’s a great group of people, top to bottom. I’m fortunate to be a part of it.

Do you and Michael watch each other’s work?

TREVOR: No, we don’t watch each other’s work. I don’t even watch my own work.

Photo: JPI

Finally, what could you preview that Y&R viewers should expect, or look forward to from Tucker in the weeks ahead?

TREVOR:  In general, I think you’d better strap in.

So, looking forward to seeing Trevor ‘s take on the role of Tucker McCall? What do you see Tucker becoming romantically involved with? Share your thoughts and first impressions of Trevor on Y&R in the comment section below.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS Billy Flynn, Greg Rikaart & Mary Beth Evans Talk On: Abigail’s Murderer Revealed, Orpheus’ Poisonous Plot & the Move to Peacock

September had been a pivotal month for Days of our Lives.  After nearly 57-years on broadcast television, the long-running soap opera shifted from NBC to exclusively streaming on Peacock.  While fans have been adjusting and wrapping their heads around the change, the stories of the characters you love to love, or love to hate, are continuing to play out in Salem.

This week, after months of a whodunit and who is to blame for the death of Chad’s wife, Abigail DiMera, DAYS fans finally learned that the actual killer was none other than Clyde Weston (James Read).  Meanwhile, Kayla has taken ill along with Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate (Lauren Koslow), all a part of Orpheus’ (George DelHoyo) longstanding feud with the women and the men in their lives.

Photo: JPI

Now on You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, DAYS stars: Billy Flynn (Chad), Greg Rikaart (Leo) and Mary Beth Evans (Kayla) discuss their latest storylines, plus their thoughts on the soaps move on Peacock and its future.

As viewers witnessed on recent episodes, Chad figured out that it was Clyde who murdered Abigail, and went after him with a gun. Chad decided he wanted to hear the entire sordid story of how Clyde killed her.  This led to the showdown scenes at Abigail’s gravesite which included a visit by EJ (Dan Feuerriegel), who saved his brother from Clyde. During this interview, Billy weighs-in on taping the climatic scenes, what it was like to blame multiple characters for months for Abigail’s death, plus what the future holds in store for Chad as he moves on with his life post-Chabby.

Photo: JPI

Greg Rikaart shares his thoughts on if he ever thought Leo would turn out to be Abigail’s murderer since Leo had a revenge plot against those who wronged him. Rikaart also weighs-in on the story where Leo had a relationship with Craig Wesley, his enduring on-screen relationship with Emily O’Brien (Gwen, ex-Jana, Y&R) , plus working with Billy in the limited-series Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem, where Chad goes in drag as “Belinda Chinashop” and more.

Photo: JPI

Mary Beth talks on Kayla’s latest plight; that  being kidnapped by Orpheus along with Marlena and Kate, the good doctor has become very sick while trying to maintain order at University Hospital.  Evans also shares her thoughts on the arrival of Abigail Klein as her on-screen daughter Stephanie, the departure of Marci Miller as Abigail, and more.

Check out our full interview with Billy, Greg and Mary Beth below, and make sure to ‘subscribe’ to the Michael Fairman Channel for more celebrity interviews, music videos, game shows and special event coverage.

Now let us know, what did you think of Clyde being revealed as Abigail’s true killer? What did you think of the confrontation scenes between Billy Flynn and James Read? What has been your favorite Leo moment since Greg came to DAYS?  Will Kayla figure out what Orpheus has done to her and others? Finally, are you enjoying DAYS on Peacock after its first few weeks of the series exclusively streaming? Share your thoughts in the comment section,

GH’s Brook Kerr and Tabyana Ali Talk On: Trina’s Trial, Spencer and Rory, And Their On-Screen Mother/Daughter Relationship

Currently, General Hospital fans are awaiting the verdict in Trina’s trial and just what lengths her mother will go to in order to secure her freedom! With the story playing out on-air, Michael Farman chatted in a new virtual interview with the two women central to the story; Brook Kerr (Portia) and Tabyana Ali (Trina).

As viewers know, Trina was set-up by Esme Prince (Avery Pohl), to make it appear that she taped her best friends, Cameron (William Lipton) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) having sex, and then posted the video from her phone, so it went viral.

During the conversation for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Tabyana and Brook weigh-in on what’s gone down at the trial including; how Spencer Cassadine came forward with an alibi for Trina, plus how Portia may put her medical career at risk if she brings Esme’s partner in crime, Oz, out of his coma to get the evidence they need to point the finger on Esme.

 

In addition, Tabyana and Brook share their thoughts on the men in Trina’s life: Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse), and how the #Sprina has a life of its own on social media.

Brook also shares dishes on Portia’s romantic relationship with Curtis (Donnell Turner), plus the recent noteworthy scenes between Portia and Stella (Vernee Watson), where GH shed light on a mother’s concern; that racial injustice could factor in to the jury’s decision in Trina’s case.
