It’s taped in the old All My Children studio!”

I love Grayson, but I’m saddened to see him do a project like this- He’s 43, not 23; Hope he’s doing this just for the money. I won’t be watching this kiddie soap!

I’ve always supported Grayson over the years, but this latest project was a BAD idea. I thought he knew he was more talented that just being a ‘soap’ actor- his fans tried to find projects for him that were age appropriate, I’m guessing he just wants to forever be treated like a piece of meat, and not be taken seriously as an actor! I won’t be watching this kiddie soap either, and if he continues to make BAD choices like this, I may lose interest in being a fan too!!

I was one of those former fans whom did try and find work for him, and it was insulting to see him ending up doing a project like this, but what can I say, it was his choice to do it, and with choices like this I’m glad I’m no longer a fan (and he’s not a fan of me either). Best of luck Grayson; you’re going to need it….

We’re all trying to support him, but where’s the support from Grayson for what his fans have done for him??!! Did he once thank-you for your hard work???? Grayson, if he was a person with a conscience would invite you back then maybe I would go back on, as many other fans might. Yes he is working, won’t be watching the show; I’m too old! You found ‘The Good Wife’ for Grayson, and Michael Park did a great job in the role, but Grayson should have been the one sitting in that courtroom chair. This is where my frustration lies:… Read more »

I might watch this soap, depending on who else joins the cast. I’m way past the target age for Nick at Night (25), but I hate the fact that this is being produced by that vile woman and soap killer, Jill Farren Phelps!! How does she still get work with her s****y track record?!

Grayson should be James Bond. The only reason I can see that people watching the show is because of Grayson. Well Frank Sinatra did a movie for free and it became a huge hit. Good luck Grayson, get this done and move on kid. 🙂

I felt I had to chime in. I am not sure how many auditions/scripts Grayson was getting over the last couple of years, but I’m guessing he just wasn’t getting the goods with his soap background hindering him. That is, being out of the loop for pilot seasons and all. I often wondered why his networking skills failed him until I read Jill Phelps signed him on here. They worked together on Another World. Maybe the four remaining soaps have never called him up for a role, but Jill thought of GM and called him to work on this telenovela.… Read more »

I thought Grayson outgrew the soap opera world, c’mon Grayson is this all you think you’re worth? I agree with the above comments; your fans wanted what was best for you, and we got let down. I no longer visit your site either; I’m bombarded with Dutch stuff , and there is no more ‘juice’ or excitement left, especially after your regular; ‘Grayblue’ was axed. (my advice; make amends) I am happy that you are working, but please choose your next gig carefully, and listen to your fans. You deserve more!

So…Jennifer Landon is no better because she hasn’t outgrown the soap world at age 29? Why hadn’t anyone asked why she can’t do any better than a soap? Especially with her pedigree and three Emmys? I wonder what exactly the producers told her when she was auditioning for gigs after she left ATWT.

PS: I guess the message I’m getting here is if you ask a question, help on the site, etc; you will be removed. What kind of site is Grayson running?! Don’t say a peep if you don’t want to be removed!

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.
