She’s a three-time Daytime Emmy winner, and the daughter of the iconic Michael Landon.  Now actress Jennifer Landon is about to make her debut on NBC’s Days of our Lives on upcoming episodes next week.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest (on newsstands this week), Landon will play Hillary a neighbor that Nicole (Arianne Zucker) runs into while hiding out in Canada with baby Holly.

But there is a twist! Hillary turns out to have an interesting profession one that could put Nicole’s plans completely in jeopardy! As the World Turns fondly recall Landon in her role feisty role as Gwen, which won her those three consecutive Daytime Emmy trophies in 2006, 2007 and 2008.

So, glad to see Jennifer Landon back on daytime? What will Hillary’s appearance on the scene mean for Nicole when all is said and done? Comment below!

Would she not have been a perfect Theresa recast? I dont get why this show kerps hiring big name talent in short term or throwaway roles. Its like they dont look at their entire canvas and assess the needs of the show. They struggled and shoehorned Dr. Daniel Jonas into the show for years…when he would have made a perfectly natural Mike Horton recast. He couldnt have slept with half the women he did if he was Mike, as be would have been related to them. Same on GH…they hire Budig having NO idea whatsoever who she will play. After… Read more »

I am so glad. I met her at an ATWT gathering in Manhattan the year before that show left the air. she was so very nice and she really is a beautiful lady. My only gripe is that I know i am going to be wishing she can stick around. I know her work is going to be very good!!!

I cannot believe this! I LOVED her on ATWT & am so excited to see her again. Maybe her character can help fill the void when Nicole leaves the show (which I hate to even think about) So happy to see the girl back on daytime.

Glad she is making her way back to daytime, even if it is for a short storyline. She was given the short end of the shaft at The Young and the Restless, even though I did find her take on Heather Stevens refreshing! Hope this leads to her making a more permanent return to the daytime fold, because Jennifer is a great actress!

Well stated, Scott. A few daytime vets got short shrift at Y&R (Maura West anyone?) during the lunatic years of misguided stories endorsed by producers who did not know better. I still feel bad Paul’s children are just not around.

Do not even get me going on Maura West’s unjustified firing; her portrayal of Diane Jenkins was ace, given the material that was written. She could’ve really become a longterm Genoa City residence, but now she’s found her proper home in Port Charles.

Thankfully, Genoa City is a saver place to be in 2017 than it was in 2010/2011, etc.

Maura was told the age difference was not a big deal but it was also remember they could not age Kyle when the did Abby the whole thing was a fiasco but she has a good run at GH though I feel they watered her character down since Jelly took over.

Well, let’s hope this is better than her run on Y&R.

They would be smart to keep her. She would have good story under Ron Carlivati’s writing.

As the World Turns Cast To Perform Virtual Reading Of Final Episode

In a once-in-a soap-lifetime event during the Covid-19 pandemic, the cast of As the World Turns will reunite for one night online for a virtual reading of the CBS daytime drama’s final episode that aired back 10 years ago this past September,

This livestream event is for a good cause and is brought to you by former ATWT cast member, Trent Dawson’s (Ex-Henry) theatre group The Katonah Classic Stage.  Dawson is the artistic director there.

Over 26 veteran cast members from ATWT, including Larry Bryggman, Don Hastings, Kathryn Hays, Elizabeth Hubbard, Michael Park and more are set to participate in the reading plus some surprise guests.

The show will be streamed  n The Locher Room YouTube channel, 0n Wednesday night, October 28th at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST, where fans will also  have the opportunity to comment and ask questions of the cast,

The event is asking for a $15 donation to be able to see it and you can click here for more info!

Working with Katonah Classic Stage (KCS), a professional, nonprofit theatre group an hour north from New York City, Dawson is hoping this event will help those in need.  KCS has access to outdoor performance space that can provide a safer, more  socially-distant experience for the artists and the audience. The fundraiser not only  applies to salaries, but to health care as well; without employment most artists are ineligible for health coverage during a time when such insurance is critically important.

So what do you think of getting these beloved stars from ATWT together for a good cause to relive and read the script of the final episode from Oakdale? Comment below.
