I totally agree. I think part of the problem is that all of daytime now shoots in LA and I believe she stated in an interview awhile back that she does not want to live in LA or commute there for an extended period of time. Believe me, I would love nothing more than to see her on my screen on a regular basis again. I miss OLTL to this day.

You are correct Aaron. From what I’ve read, Erika’s home is in Connecticut and she has no desire to leave the east coast. Not a day goes by that I don’t miss our beloved One Life to Live.

I agree, this is my favorite show on TV. I keep a bunch recorded and watch them back to back when I can’t find anything else good. I think Ms.Slezak’s last time on B.B was featured with Gramps, Frank’s dad. Can’t wait to see this appearance.

This is super news. It’s always wonderful to see Erika Slezak in action. I’ll definitely tune in to see her. I’ve hoped that she would make another visit to the Fox drama, The Resident. A few years ago, she was wonderful as a former medical school professor with a newly diagnosed, progressively deteriorating medical condition. I’m not a regular viewer of that show, but I’d love to see Erika as that character again. Let’s face it, I’d love to see Erika Slezak in just about anything.

I too, wish Ms. Slezak would slide into a Young and Restless role worthy of her talent. Josh Griffith would need to be given his walking papers first. I don’t trust is headwriting abilites in the least.

Always look forward to seeing favorite soap stars on prime time shows! They are great! I think it would be great if she had a thing with Pop!

Great! She would make an excellent addition to the family. Her character played off of Len Cariou’s Henry Reagan perfectly. A love interest for Henry, a step-mother, step-grandmother for the family. There’s room at the Sunday for her.

In very sad news on Sunday, actress Annie Wersching, who starred in the series 24, Bosch and Timeless, and portrayed Amelia Joffe on General Hospital, passed away this morning from cancer.  Annie was only 45-years-0ld.

Deadline broke the news of Annie’s death.  In a statement, Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full, shared: “There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the simplest moment. She didn’t require music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall. As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…’ ”

Wersching’s first major role came as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital.  She played the role from May to September of 2007.  Amelia came to Port Charles to seek revenge on Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and wound up lovers with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Later, she went on to star as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24.  She also appeared in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, and The Rookie.  One of her last roles was in Star Trek: Picard which came two decades after she made her screen acting debut in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Annie is survived by her husband and children children Freddie, 12; Ozzie, and Archie, 4.

Share your condolences and remembrances for Annie in the comment section.  But first, check out some scenes from her time on General Hospital below.

Michael B. Jordan Recalls His Acting Start as All My Children’s Reggie in SNL Opening Monologue

Last night, Michael B. Jordan hosted Saturday Night Live.  The Creed star, who is the director of the upcoming Creed III due out in March, took to the stage to deliver his opening monologue, and right off the top he mentioned his beginnings as All My Children’s Reggie.

Jordan portrayed Reggie from 2003-2006 on the ABC soap opera (his character was eventually adopted by Jack Montgomery).

When Michael hit the stage, he shared: “Yesterday, I had a crazy full-circle moment. We pre-shot some videos for the show and when I got to the studio I realized it was the exact same place where I shot one of my first acting roles on the soap opera All My Children.

He then tossed to a clip of his 16-year-old self in which Reggie says, “sometimes the animal in me gets kind of crazy” and then howls life a wolf at the end of the scene. Back to the SNL stage, Jordan said mockingly, “I’m pretty sure I hit puberty mid-howl.”

Jordan ended his monologue by looping it back to his early acting days on AMC, sharing: “I just want to say, I’m so grateful to be standing on this stage. Sometimes, I can take myself a little too seriously but tonight, I’m going to have fun, I’m just going to go for it. And maybe, just maybe let the inner animal get a little crazy.”

Watch Michael’s opening monologue below.  Then let us know, what did you think of the the AMC Reggie clip reference? Do you recall Michael’s days on the ABC daytime drama series? Comment below.
