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.

Melissa was wonderful. SO much fun! This is a fantastic way to promote the shows and let fans reach out and be involved. I saw it live and re-wached again last night!! Thank you for doing this. It makes us feel closer to the stars we love so much.

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

Jessica Tuck Returns This Week To General Hospital

There will be a Cassandra Pierce sighting in Port Charles, which means one of the best actresses we know, Jessica Tuck, will be back on your screens this week on ABC’s General Hospital.

Tuck, who became soap-famous for her role as Megan on One Life to Live from 1988-1992 and then went on to primetime television roles returns to the canvas as the evil Cassandra, a role she debuted on GH back in 2017.  Viewers last saw her pop during Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha’s (Sofia Matteson)vacation.

But this time look for Tuck to mix-it up with GH icon Genie Francis (Laura) in some major showdown scenes, when she holds the mayor and Curtis (Donnell Turner) at gunpoint on the Haunted Star.  Will these two be able to get the on-the-run villainess locked up for good? Don’t necessarily count on it.

Of course, a man who both Cassandra and Laura have an interest in bringing down, Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) plays heavy into the story. But will Cassandra do a double-cross of a double-cross? Who else may get a dose of something potentially lethal that she has been concocting?

Jessica told Soap Opera Digest that when she found out she would be working with Genie Francis; “I was like Woo-hoo! Hot diggity!  I mean, like many people, I have been a fan of hers forever and ever and ever.  It was fun to meet the person behind the character I’ve gotten to know.”

Judith Light Receives Her Star On The Hollywood Walk of Fame

This week on Thursday, Judith Light was honored with the 2,673rd star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in a ceremony attended by many of her beloved friends, longtime business associates who were instrumental in her career, and former or current castmates, and of course, her husband, Robert Desiderio  (Ex-Steve Piermont, OLTL).

The two-time Daytime Emmy winner for her powerhouse performance as Karen Wolek on One Life to Live, and a two-time Tony Award winner for her work in Other Desert Cities and The Assembled Parties was given her star on the legendary walk on Hollywood Blvd for her incredibly successful and enduring career in television, movies and the theatre.

Speaking to the crowd in honor of Judith’s big day was her Ugly Betty co-star, America Ferrera as well as Transparent creator, Jill Soloway. Broadway producer Daryl Roth, Light’s Transparent co-stars: Amy Landecker, Kathryn Hahn, Jay Duplass and Gaby Hoffman, David Steinberg, and former Ugly Betty co-star Ana Ortiz, were all on-hand.  In addition, Judith’s longtime friend and former on-screen One Life to Live sister, Brynn Thayer (Ex-Jenny Wolek) attended to celebrate this moment with Judith.

In her speech, Light thanked everyone along the way at all the shows and stages she has appeared on and more including: One Life to Live, Who’s the Boss? ABC and of course, her current series Transparent, as well as producer Ryan Murphy with whom she first worked with as Marilyn Miglin in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, a role which earned Judith a Primetime Emmy nomination.  Light will next be seen in Murphy’s Netflix series, The Politician with Bette Midler and Ben Platt.

Judith expressed to all that helped her have a successful career: “The fact is, if you were not in my life, the dream of this little girl sitting alone in her room in Trenton, N.J., reading plays and acting out Shakespeare passages, would never have come to pass. All of you have made and are continuing to make the powerful difference in my life and the lives of so many others  So, I say to all of you with deep and profound gratitude, thank you.  You remind me of who we all really and truly are. We are each other’s star.”
