Me either, I use to like him then one day he showed up on General hospital, I hated his sick character, jason should have killed him after he saw his first finger painting, anyways I hope he is gone and he never, ever, comes back.

No. Gave up the satellite dish. And, even if I had not, it sounds too much like a tweens show like iCarly, Big Time Rush, or something else, just with drama. Not to mention I think James Franco (no disrespect) has done enough damage already. 😉

James Franco just wants to try eveything he can and I think he has an obsession with soap opera. Is that good or bad? We will never know. He’s a brilliant quirky actor!

I say it’s bad, He came to port charles and with abc’s blessing he helped to destroy it and I believe he is a very big part of general hospital going downhill in the ratings. Let him stick to movies and what ever else he is doing just don’t come back to general hospital.

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.
