"GL's" Marj Dusay posts message to fans on the ending of the series!

jpi_dusay101608_25521.jpgGuiding Light’s incredible Marj Dusay (Alexandra Spaulding) posted a very touching, moving and gracious note to her facebook fan page this weekend, after the final statement made by Telenext that Guiding Light will not find another home.  On-Air On-Soaps wants to share this with all soap fans and those who will hold “GL” close to their hearts forever! We Love You Marj!

STATEMENT FROM MARJ DUSAY TO HER FANS:
“WELL, WHAT CAN I SAY. THE ENDING OF A CLASSIC AND HISTORICAL SOAP OPERA, OUR
GUIDING LIGHT. IT’S INCREDIBLY EMOTIONAL FOR ALL OF US WHO HAVE BEEN INVOLVED.
WE’RE AWARE OF THE PLACE IT HAS HAD IN MANY OF YOUR HEARTS OVER THE YEARS.

WE WILL BE SHOOTING OUR LAST EPISODES WITHIN THE NEXT TWO WEEKS. I’M HOPING THAT
OUR AUDIENCE WILL PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE FINAL WEEKS OF THE SHOW. I PROMISE
YOU IT WILL BE EXTREMELY TOUCHING, AND I THINK SOMETHING THAT WE CAN ALL BE
PROUD TO HAVE BEEN A PART OF.

SAYING GOOD-BYE TO THE CAST, PRODUCTION CREW AND ALL THE PEOPLE THAT MAKE A SOAP
WORK HAS BEEN A BITTER PILL TO SWALLOW. WE WERE, TRULY, FAMILY. MY ALAN, MY
PHILIP, MY BUZZ, ETC.– HAVE ALL GIVEN ME WONDERFUL MOMENTS AS PARTNERS IN
ACTING. I COULDN’T HAVE WISHED FOR MORE.

I HAVE BEEN EXTREMELY LUCKY TO PLAY A CHARACTER LIKE ALEXANDRA, WHO I ALWAYS
BELIEVED TO BE VERY INTELLIGENT AND WISE, WHILE RETAINING A CHILDLIKE QUALITY.
UNPREDICTABLE.
I PARTICULARLY LIKED SOME OF THE OUTLANDISH, OVER-THE-TOP THINGS SHE HAS DONE, I
HOPED, ALWAYS SHOWING HER DEPTH OF HEART AND LOVE AND CONCERN.

I THOUGHT IT WAS IMPORTANT THAT ALEX BE SHOWN AS AN EXAMPLE OF A WOMAN WHO HAD
EVERYTHING, BUT WAS ANYTHING BUT PERFECT. WHEN YOU THINK SOMEONE HAS EVERYTHING,
REMEMBER– THERE’S AN UNDERBELLY OF SECRETS THAT ONE HIDES: INSECURITY,
JEALOUSY, ANGER, AND ANY OTHER HUMAN FLAWS YOU CAN THINK OF. LOVE CAN CONQUER OR
DESTROY, YOU CAN ONLY KNOW ANOTHER HUMAN BEING SO WELL.

I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU– AGAIN– TO ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE BEEN SO KIND TO ME
OVER THE YEARS. YOU WILL NEVER KNOW HOW MUCH I APPRECIATE IT.

SO, WISHING YOU ALL LOVE, HAPPINESS, PEACE, UNDERSTANDING, FREEDOM, FURS,
CHOCOLATE, JET PLANES, DIAMOND RINGS, CHEESEBURGERS, FRIED CHICKEN, HOT COCOA,
VANILLA ICE CREAM, ETC., ETC.

ENOUGH SAID.

LOVE YA,

MARJ”
