Tonight TOLN Soaps and On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman launched their first Google Hang Out Chat where selected fans got to join in on the conversation live on their webcams and ask questions directly to the guest who for the premiere episode was One Life to Live’s Melissa Archer (Natalie Buchanan)!

Throughout the chat, host Michael asked Melissa questions on the return of One Life to Live, Natalie’s new set, what is happening between Natalie and Cutter as seen in the First Look One Life to Life preview reel and much more.  In addition, Michael posed questions from Twitter and facebook from fans of Melissa’s including: how long she might be staying in Llanview? And, who were some of Natalie’s all-time favorite hook-ups?

Next, the special guest fans asked some very intriguing questions, and we got a tease from Melissa of just where Natalie might be headed in terms of where she is in her life and what it may cause her do in all new episodes. In addition,  our hangout fans each revealed to Melissa, what has been there favorite Natalie moment on OLTL throughout the time she has played the role!

Watch the video after the jump, and let us know what you thought of it? Do you like the concept? What do you think of some of Melissa’s answers? Are you psyched for One Life’s return more after seeing this?  Let us know as we get close to the premiere episode of One Life to Live on April 29th!

I love this!!! I always wanted the soaps stuff like Google Hangouts, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Tumblr and even the teen magazines, what a great way to interact with fans. I also LOVED Melissa’s answers, hope to see more Google Hangout with the rest of the cast of OLTL and also the cast of AMC.

Cant wait to see OLTL and AMC but unfotunately my two daughters age 9 and 10 will not be permitted. Theyll have to wait til their 18 and make that decision. Two years ago they sometimes watched with me and liked Shane, Jack, Sam and Destiny and appeared to be future soap fans but now with the adult content i will not allow them to watch. I do not allow my young children see R rated movies with explicit sexual content and nudity, obscene language or allow them to view shows with graphic violence so the same rules apply with tv and shows online. I feel childhood is fleeting and want them to enjoy it while they can, and not deal with that adult stuff until they are mature adults. It sure isnt like when my mother introduced me to the show when i was 11, and could watch. I will be watching these myelf with my mother and sometimes my husband on April 29th. Thanks to my neighbor and friend Jim for allowing me to use his computer while ours is in repair.

Hey Kim… I admire and commend your post! They really will miss out on the multi-generational families watching together… if they push the envelope too far. That is a sad thing especially after 70+ years of serialized drama on radio, TV and now on-line. If I had children I would do the same thing. There will be multi-generations watching… just not together… and that is a loss. The idea that they need to bring a reality TV woman from a less than stellar show to come on as a bartender shows that they are trying hard to get viewers but not necessarily the right viewers. I have loved OLTL for all of the years it has been on… but if it isn’t OLTL and if it is pandering or using gratuitous anything… it will cause me to stop watching it. Again… I applaud you for your post and your parenting!!!

why don’t you wait and see what will be offered first before you criticize-or better yet, let your kids live in the real world. Parents like you are the reason so many kids are screwed up today. Grow up, will ya? We have fought for 2 years now to get AMC and OLTL back-and we don’t need people like you judging something that hasn’t even aired yet. Life is not a Leave It To Beaver rerun, and it’s about time you realized that

First off, great interview and so nice to see other soap fans joining in and participating. Would love to see more of these.

How beautiful is Melissa? GORGEOUS! So kind of her to take time for the fans. She always seems so genuine and down to earth.

If you get a shot at another video interview like this, I would love to see Robin Strasser (DORIAN) and get her take on all sorts of things. Robin seems like a straight shooter and someone who does not hold back, I imagine that being another great interview.

I agree, Melissa looked STUNNING-the year-plus off seemed to agree with her (she has either dropped weight or shifted it around) I could never decide on her attractiveness during the network run, but I never took my eyes off her either. But, now, she will DEFINITELY be a character to watch this time around

Natalie belongs with John. The ending of the show was good because they belonged together. Now its screwed up. I hope they find their way back together!

CW’s Batwoman TV Series Looking For Out Lesbian Actress To Play Title Role

In some intriguing casting news, the upcoming Batwoman series currently in development for The CW will feature TV’s first gay superhero character that is a series lead.

But on top of that, news today via TVLine has that the series is seeking an out lesbian actress to play the title role of Batwoman aka Kate Kane.  They are looking for an actress ages 25-29 of any ethnicity.

As to the log lines of the series, here’s what was released: “A wealthy socialite who calls Gotham home, Batwoman’s Kate Kane is described as ‘armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind,’ while physically she is a ‘highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence.’ But don’t call her a hero yet.  In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.”

Look for Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television to helm the development deal.  Caroline Dries, an out lesbian, will be the head writer. She is best known for her work on The Vampire Diaries.

Batwoman/ Kate Kane will be first seen this fall in a four-way crossover event between ArrowThe FlashSupergirl and Legends of Tomorrow with the goal for the character to land her own series.

So, which lesbian actress should play CW’s LGBT super hero? Share your suggestions and thoughts in the comment section below.

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

An ABC rep told Soap Opera Digest that the role of Jordan is being recast.

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!
