Judith looks great. Thanks for the clips. Been a fan since OLTL. I was watching the show when she was on the stand, and through the Jenny/Brad triangle. Followed her to Who’s the Boss & TV movies too. Fun seeing her on Ugly Betty and L&O svu.

Go Judith.

Thanks for clips Michael on Judith Light. Always loved her from her first appearance on OLTL right down to that rocking court room scene when Karen had to admit what she was doing. They don’t write soaps like that anymore.

Am so happy she’s doing great on Broadway.

The only thing is, I still have a little bit of a lingering cough and I guess I have to work on rebuilding my strength and my energy a bit.  But feeling really good, stronger, and better every day, and wanted to let you all know, first and foremost.

And secondly, I wanted to thank you all for the incredibly kind and generous messages of support you sent my way which really lifted my spirits at a time when they needed to be lifted, ‘cause there was a scary couple of days there.”
