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.

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

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.
