The very talented Karine Vanasse (Margaux LeMarchal) received some wonderful news in that she has been promoted to series regular for season four of the hit ABC primetime soap opera in the Hamptons, Revenge!

Deadline.com broke the story on Karine.  Since first appearing in the third season of Revenge back in September, Vanasse has been in a recurring role, however she has been in almost very episode! In story, the French Heiress Margaux LeMarchal has a past with the Graysons from growing up, and she returned to the the U.S. to start the American version of Voulez Magazine. In the romance department as of late, she has been quite cozy with Jack Porter played by Nick Wechsler!

As for the French-Canadian actress, viewers may remember her from the the period drama Pan Am! We sure do, we had the pleasure of meeting Karine and doing a video interview with her back then for Frontiers LA.

Revenge will be moving to the Sunday at 10PM slot, and a decision and confirmation of a season four is expected sometime in May, but it was important for the series producers to get Vanasse under contract now, before pilot season began!

Are you glad to hear Karine and her on-screen alter-ego, will be staying put on Revenge?  Let us know! And check out this interview with Karine from her days on Pan Am, after the jump!

Yes; I like her character…intelligent, honest, good for/with Jack. (Though now that Aidan’s seemingly not with Emily….I’m assuming Jack and Emily/Amanda willl fiind their way to each other.)

OLTL Favorite Susan Batten to Guest-Star on General Hospital

A very familiar face to the town of Llanview and the beloved One Life to Live, will be appearing on your screens this week on General Hospital.

Susan Batten (Ex-Luna Moody, OLTL) will make a few guest appearances in scenes with Sasha played by Sofia Mattsson.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Batten will play the role of home shopping-star Flora Gardens!

Batten former boss, Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) called Susan and said about the role: , “Okay, there’s this character named Flora Gardens.”  To which Susan responded, “Does she have teeth?”   After the two shared a laugh, Susan said “yes’ to the role.

OLTL fans will remember Luna’s torrid relationship with Max Holden (James DePaiva).

The actress/writer/producer reported that she was a ‘still very nervous’ acting on soap again (she last appeared on One Life in 2012), but said once she got into the rhythm of the shooting and delivering the lines it was all good.

So, looking forward to seeing Susan on GH? Comment below. But first, take a moment to stroll down memory lane in this clip from OLTL, when Max proposes to Luna.

Peter Bergman Signs 5-Year Deal with The Young and the Restless

Some of the hottest news on Daytime Emmy night was the reveal that 23-time Daytime Emmy nominee, and 3-time Emmy-winner, Peter Bergman is staying put at The Young and the Restless for quite some time to come, in fact, at least five more years.

Bergman, who plays Genoa City staple, Jack Abbott, has inked a new five-year deal to stay with the CBS daytime drama series, which is a significant contract in the world of soaps.  The usual contact for actors is somewhere between one and four years, with thirteen-week or twenty-six-week cycle, if the show were to not pick up an actors option.

While Y&R has been renewed thus far through the 2024 TV season, it would seem this move to ensure Bergman is sticking around as the show moves past its 50th year on the air, is a vote of confidence by Sony Pictures Television and CBS that the top-rated daytime drama will live on.

Deadline first reported the contract news.  Peter joined Y&R back in 1989, after first successful soap foray on All My Children as Dr, Cliff Warner.

So, what do you think about Peter signing on for five more years at Y&R? Comment below.
