There was so much to love about OLTL through the years. I can go back to Viki’s romance with Steve after she thought Joe dead, the Dorian Lord-Mark Toland affair and Karen Wolek’s courtroom travails.

The “Kish” storyline was among my favorites in the last years of the venerable serial. Never understood the sudden brakes on a plot line in a show that was always embracing diversity and understanding. The Carla Hall story anyone?

This item serves as an update on an engaging performer, but also to remember what a kick-butt show ONE LIFE TO LIFE really was.

Very well said Iakovos. OLTL always has such innovative story lines and compelling characters. You named a few. The list goes on and on – Marco Dane, Edwina Lewis, RJ Gannon, the Siegel family, Ivan Kipling, the Vega family, Mel Hayes, Bobby Blue, Max Holden, Luna Moody, Captain Ed Hall, Ben Davidson. I could go on for hours. And I always felt OLTL has the strongest cast of any program I’ve ever seen. If an actor is weak starting out, he/she grows from the experience of working with such excellent actors as Erika Slezak, Robin Strasser and Robert S. Woods.… Read more »

Thanks for the roster of character names. I can see and hear them in my mind as I read your post. OLTL was really good. I think because it was New York based and featured so many strong theatre actors.

I totally agree. I watched OLTL for over 25 years. The Buchanans were my second family. I will never understand how ABC cancelled this iconic show. I stopped watching the ABC network, with the exception of gh, over 3 years with the end of one life.

I have not and will not watch anything from the alphabet network or the mouse company since January 13, 2012.

Neither have I. I’ve boycotted the alphabet network and all things related to the mouse company since OLTL was needlessly cancelled!!!! I miss my beloved OLTL and Llanview characters every single day.

Soap Smarts: How Daytime Dramas Are Using Ingenuity To Get Back Into Production During COVID-19

Daytime dramas seldom get the credit they deserve, and now they should be getting further credit for being the first back into production as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage on, and trying to implement new ways to keep their trademarks love scenes, intimate moments and two-person scenes somehow looking in tact; even though it will be far from how it was done in the past.

In the story from the Associated Press The Bold and the Beautiful EP, and head writer, Brad Bell – who’s soap was the first one back into the studio – commented on how the show is utilizing mannequins, or real-life significant others to help pull off close contact love scenes and how it is rather groundbreaking. “We feel almost like television pioneers all these years later because we’re the first ones out, blazing new ways of producing the shows with the current safety standards, and we’re getting the job done. It’s very exciting.”

When B&B scripts written pre-coronavirus were reviewed in preparation for shooting during the pandemic now, originally all the cinches and smooches were cut. But Bell found a solution whereby a remote actor recites lines as their on-camera scene partner responds in a “low, intimate voice” and engages in “beautiful, yearning eye contact” with an off-camera doll.

As far as the soapy embrace or lip-lock, B&B cast member Katrina Bowden (Flo) has had her husband and musician Ben Jorgensen stand in for her on-screen love interest, Darin Brooks (Wyatt) since returning to taping new episodes.

Days of our Lives EP Ken Corday noted to AP:  The “learning curve” is steep. Before the pandemic, “we were producing eight, one-hour episodes a week. That’s basically 40 or 50 scenes a day.  That’s going to be basically impossible to reopen, so to speak, at that pace. We’re going to have to be more careful. So will there be five shows a week, or more? Yet to be determined.  It will certainly cost more.”

B&B and now Y&R which heads back into production next week, and the others soaps, will be using the company called Reel Health, which launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to serve the entertainment industry, and hires medically trained workers to monitor sets and enforce protocols developed by a company epidemiologist and in accordance with industry and government standards,

Alicia Rodis, a veteran intimacy coordinator who helped the actors guild develop guidelines for taping scenes of romance and simulated sex. shared: “Finding ways to put romance on the screen is inevitable and necessary.  At the end of the day, intimacy isn’t going anywhere. Physical intimacy is a part of the human experience. And we’re going to have to find a way to be able to continue to tell these stories, even in extraordinary circumstances.”

So, what do you think of how soaps are tackling taping episodes in the new normal to give their fans a sense of all that they love from their favorite daytime dramas during COVID-19? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
