Fantastic news last evening!  Judith Light, the former two-time Daytime Emmy winner for her iconic role as Karen Wolek on One Life to Live, took home her second consecutive Tony Award in ceremonies held at Radio City Music Hall in New York City and telecast live on CBS! ( except on the West Coast).

Light took home the prize in the Best Actress in a Featured Role in a Play for her performance in The Assembled Parties!  Judith won in 2012 in the same category for her role in Other Desert Cities! The Assembled Parties continues on Broadway till July 7th, in case you have the opportunity to catch Judith in it in the Big Apple!

After her second consecutive Tony victory Sunday, Light spoke to the press backstage where she related to the L.A Times, “I was terrified to come back to the theatre. I needed to prove to this community that I mean it, that I really want to be back here. I’m doing such different plays, I’m such different characters, but the overwhelming experience is one of real appreciation. The result of this is this ongoing, really, love affair between me and this community.”

Of course, one of the high points of Judith’s Tony win was getting to listen to her acceptance speech where she thanked her husband, Robert Desiderio, whom she meant when they both starred on One Life to Live, he in the role of Steve Piermont, and her long time manager, Herb Hamsher, and paid tribute to her fellow nominees and much more.  Watch Judith’s acceptance speech from last night after the jump, and let us know what you thought of it and her Tony victory?

Melissa Reeves Talks On DAYS Time-Jump; Paul Telfer & Eric Martsolf Chat Between Their Scenes On ‘Inside Salem’ Podcast

On the latest episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, the special guest is enduring DAYS star, Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), who found herself as the catalyst for the year time-jump and flash-forward that fans are now watching play out on the daytime drama series.

Last week, Jennifer was pushed off a balcony following her wedding to Jack by Princess Gina.  And on last Friday’s cliffhanger, Jennifer woke up out of a coma to learn from Jack that she has been asleep for a year.

Now with a year having passed in Salem, Jennifer learns bits of information of what has happened to her loved ones.  Meanwhile, Eve is in lock-up for the crime against Jennifer, and it appears Jennifer cannot put the pieces together of who pushed her on that fateful night to clear Eve.

In addition during the podcast, Melissa chats with host Michael Fairman on the passing of John Clarke (Ex-Mickey), and being one of the core characters tied to the legacy of the Hortons – the first family of Salem.

As to the initial reaction to the time-jump, Melissa reveals that the entire cast was very excited, but all the pressure of the attention to detail was discussed with make-up, hair, and in the writing and production.
