While so many nationwide  have followed As the World Turns and some for it’s entire 54 year run,  last evening’s special event honoring the show was especially significant.  And while many fans from across the U.S. could not make it to New York, The Paley Center for Media, held a tribute event complete with a panel discussion, Q&A, and meet and greet for those in attendance.

Taking part in the panel and festivities were:  ATWT EP, Chris Goutman, and its stars: Van Hansis, Austin Peck, Trent Dawson, Don Hastings, Kathryn Hayes, Eileen Fulton, Colleen Zenk, Terri Colombino, and ATWT head writer, Jean Passanante.

Thank you for posting about the end of this amazing daytime serial. I grew up watching this show with my maternal grandmother, so I feel like another part of my childhood is being archived for good.

Thank you for posting the video of the Paley Center event for ATWT. I enjoyed watching the actors and head writer discuss the show. I will truly miss ATWT. Like a lot of folks, I grew up watching this soap with my mother, aunt, and grandmother. I adore the Bob and Kim Hughes characters and Nancy Hughes was so like my own grandmother.

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.
