On-Air On-Soaps favorite soap actress of all-time, Judith Light came in at number six on the list of the 50 Greatest Soap Actresses of All Time, in We Love Soaps countdown released today. Light, gave the single most memorable performance in daytime history with her portrayal of the hooker with the heart of gold, Karen Wolek, on One Life to Live, when she took the witness stand in the infamous Marco Dane murder trial to save her friend Viki.  To this day critics and fans still agree that it was one of the most riveting moments in soap opera history.

Light won two Daytime Emmys for Lead Actress in back to back wins in 1980 and 81. Watch Karen videos after the jump.

Celebrated soap journalist Mimi Torchin ( who voted on the panel) summed it up best.  “No one who ever saw Judith’s work as the long-suffering Karen Wolek is likely to forget it, especially her Llanview-shaking admission on the witness stand that she was a prostitute. Daytime’s rafters shook. Light went on to prime time and film fame, but this Emmy-winning actress never shunned her daytime roots, always acknowledging where she began with pride and grace. Judith’s outspokenness and her support of AID’s research and gay rights before it was fashionable shows that she isn’t only a brilliant actress, but she’s also a woman of substance.”

Michael, thank you once again for the Judith Light courtroom scenes. I was watching OLTL when they first aired. I have never been more affected by an actress since. Judith bared her soul in those scenes. I will never forget it. She should be rated number one not six. I watch her as the DA on Law and Order and on Ugly Betty. She does some great work there, but I keep waiting for a real breakout scene to show up. Maybe the writer’s will focus on this great actress more. Maybe then Ugly Betty wouldn’t be going off the… Read more »

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

General Hospital fans knew Monday’s episode would bring with it who might have survived the explosion at the Floating Rib, and who might still be in peril or who did not make out.

This afternoon as viewers were learning the fate of several characters including Dustin, who was proposing to Lulu (Emme Rylan) as the bomb went off, his portrayer, Mark Lawson took to his Instagram to announce his exit from the series.

Mark expressed: “Actors know this moment is bittersweet.  Job well done, but leaving a set full of like-minded, inspired people. Playing Dustin was a joy. Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”
