OLTL Alum Renée Elise Goldsberry Says: “I Just Think The Best Actors In The World Are On Daytime Television”

As everyone knows by now, we have always been a huge fan of the work of Renée Elise Goldsberry starting back to 2003 and her beginnings on One Life to Live in her twice Daytime Emmy-nominated performances as Evangeline Williamson.

Since OLT, Goldsberry’s career has found her on-stage in the smash musical Hamilton, then in feature film and TV series including: Waves, Altered Carbon, The Good Wife, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, The House with a Clock in Its Walls, Documentary Now, The Get Down and Evil. 

Deadline has recently released their New Hollywood Podcast and Goldsberry was a guest on the most recent episode.  While she fielded questions from the hosts about her life pre and post-Hamilton, the topic of her time on the soaps was bantered about,  Renée stood proud with the daytime community and their talent and unbelievable work ethic and how they are not given the credit they deserve.

When talking about One Life to Live, Goldsberry stated: “I learned my acting chops on that show, because we have so much work. I just think the best actors in the world are on daytime television ”

In explaining to the hosts how soaps are shot and the pace in which the actor’s are asked to perform, she related: “We take three months to film an hour and a half movie, but soap actors. shoot six hours of television a week. They’re just really talented. The stories are so broad, and they always have to continue to defend their character and some kind of really crazy situations.”

Renée summed it up by sharing: ” I love soaps.  I love the fans of soap operas, I love the writers and the producers, I love everything about soap operas. I have some really, really good friends who are still in that medium, killing the game… I still see my friends on those shows, and I watch them, and I’m super proud.”

So, what do you think about the sentiments shared by Renee on the hard-working men and women in daytime?  Plus, what do you think of the success she has found utilizing all of her talents on stage, recording, TV and film? Comment below.

lol,
she really still is in the coma ReRon left her in.
if she would stop and think for just a minute, she might awaken from the coma.
she might actually support ‘the best actors in the world’ instead of standing on their backs.
putting this one in a coma, was probably rerons best work EVER!!!

expecting her to wake up on Days, on finale day.

I lost interest in OLTL when they killed her character off. I think Renee always supported her daytime colleagues while on and off the show. I do believe TPTB of soap entertainment made it difficult for her to be truly recognized for her amazing talents as they held onto their longtime favorites. She may have been in a supportive role but she exhibited lead actress talent.

Renee did an absolutely super job as Evangeline Williamson. I loved her and the character. I was so sad when Evangeline died. I am very pleased for her as her career continues to grow.

I am very pleased that Renee takes such pride in her soap opera roots. I couldn’t agree with her more. “I just think the best actors in the world are on daytime television.” And she worked with the very best of the best. Every single day, I miss our beloved One Life to Live.

I don’t completely disagree. But, there are exceptions to the statement (Ramsey).

I always enjoyed watching her on One Life and get excited any time I get to see her in other places.

I was designing a publication a week ago and working on the movie pages putting in a photo and hey – isnt that Renee? yep it was!

That night I watched the latest episode of CBS Evil and hey – that voice sounds like Renee, and then there she was! She was on the next episode too.

What will happen when Spencer learns that the father he grieved for over three years is alive and well?

Meanwhile, Bechtel took to Twitter to confirm his return to the ABC daytime drama series expressing: “Well…it’s out of the bag. It was so hard not to reply to all of you. I’m back and I am still Spencer. I can’t wait for next week. Thank you SO much to everyone who supported me. I love being a part of this phenomenal show #gh”

Viewers are looking forward to scenes between Bechtel and Marcus Coloma (Nikolas), Maura West (Ava), Genie Francis (Laura) and James Patrick Stuart (Valentin). Will those all come to pass? Stay tuned.

Real Andrews Returns As Marcus Taggert On General Hospital

Well, well, well! Looks who’s back in Port Charles!  A major surprise occurred during Thursday’s “Next-On-General Hospital” teasers when viewers saw Sonny’s former nemesis Marcus Taggert, and Sonny himself, in a clip from a scene.

Turns out that today on Friday, January 17th look for the return of Real Andrews to his role as Taggert!  Andrews took to his Twitter and Instagram account to confirm the casting news.

Maurice Benard tweeted: He’s Back!!! Bigger and better than ever. On General Hospital. You don’t want to miss it.”

While, Andrews tweeted: “It is going to be a great ride.”

Real played the role of Marcus from 1996-1997 and then again from 1998-2003.   He was last seen on the soaps on Days of our Lives back in 2016 and 2017.

In real life, Benard and Andrews are good friends.

Now the question is, could Taggert’s re-emergence tie in to the new case that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is working on, and somehow the return of Nikolas Cassadine to the canvas?  Years ago, Taggert’s sister, Gia was involved with the dark prince, leaving fans speculating that perhaps Nik and Gia had a daughter, who could turn out to be Trina played by Sydney Mikayla.  Hmmm.

So, give a big “welcome back” to Real as Taggert hits the screen today on GH via the comment section below.
