If you want to get misty-eyed and take a trip down Llanview memory lane, look no further than last night’s Broadway performance of the Tony-nominated musical Hamilton!

The show which co-stars Tony nominee, Renee Elise Goldsberry (ex-Evangeline Williamson, OLTL) received a very special guest audience member at last night’s performance.  None other than Kassie DePaiva (Ex-Blair Cramer, OLTL) sat in the theatre and watched her former One Life castmate, sing up a storm and more.

Afterwards the two met up for a photo and DePaiva tweeted, “Saw the stellar @reneeelisegolds in the brilliant #Hamilton tonight. There are no words. I wept with pride.”

Followed by a very touching tweet from Goldsberry:  “Cried through that show just knowing u were in the same room with me again 4 a few hours. I miss u @KassieDePaiva!”

Bring out the hankies now!  So One Life to Live fans, what do you think of this nice moments between performers, friends and former castmates? Comment below!

This is a very nice story. Kassie and Renee are terrific actresses and singers. And, from what I’ve read, terrific people too. Too bad Blair and Evangeline never did a duet. How this brings back excellent memories of our beloved One Life to Live which I continue to miss every day!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for posting this Michael.

Miss my OLTL dearly to this day..They both had great chemistry in the show back then..I remember a scene when Blair went to visit Evangeline in her home, to tell her how sorry she was about her accident that left her blind..Of course the two ladies dislike each other because of Todd…When E got tired of B telling her how sorry she was and hinting to her to stay away from Todd, E tell B to please leave and that she will walk her out..A spiteful B then leans towards E ear and tells her “That ok, Evangeline..I’ll SEEEEEE myself… Read more »

Lucky enough to see the show last week and @Reneelisegolds is indeed brilliant along with the rest of her castmates. Good to see these gals together again.

I too saw the show in February. Goldsberry is a standout in a cast of standouts. Fingers crossed that she wins the Tony. She sings my favorite song on the Original Cast Recording, plus a bunch of others. Well worth the price. I’ve been obsessed with it for months now.

Example of just how talented OLTL casts were during those 40 years. The series IMHO always sported such strong talents from the theatre community in NYC. I miss New York-based soaps.

Oh my word! How I miss Evangeline and Blair, and my entire Llanview crew so, so much! OLTL was really the best soap on so many levels. I can only hope that ABC realizes what a blow it was to cancel their best soap!

I’d love to see “Evangeline” with more of her Llanview friends. I hope more of them stop by to see Hamilton, and pose for pics afterwards!

I was introduced to Hamilton by my college student grand daughter. I knew nothing about the musical in December ’15. When she showed me some video clips of it with Renee, I screamed, “I know who she is! That’s Evangeline!” I was immediately and constantly corrected by her that no, that is Renee Elise Goldsberry.. Ok I have it now.. She is Angelica! I too hope all of the OLTL cast comes to see Hamilton and that they pose for some backstage photos.. ABC made some awful mistakes dumping the best soaps on TV.

For those of you who don’t think COVID is a real thing, it’s f–king real, dude.”

General Hospital

Nancy Lee Grahn Debuted 25 Years Ago Today as General Hospital’s Alexis Davis

Back on September 26th, 1996, (25 years ago today!) the new character of Alexis Davis made her debut on ABC’s General Hospital, and brought to the iconic soap opera, the talents of Nancy Lee Grahn.

Grahn, had already made a name for herself with her captivating portrayal of lawyer Julia Wainwright Capwell on Santa Barbara for which she won a Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy in 1989, in a tie with AMC’s Debbi Morgan.

Back in April, General Hospital, marked this milestone with a special episode for Grahn, that could be remembered come next year’s Emmys.

Alexis, or shall we call her “Natasha”, was introduced on GH as the daughter of Mikkos Cassadine and his mistress, whose throat was slit by Helena Cassadine, which has played into Alexis’ story for many years to come.  At the time of her entrance to the show, Wendy Riche was GH’s executive producer.

Through the years, viewers have witnessed Grahn’s portrayal of: a tough legal eagle, an honest depiction of a woman battling the bottle, failed romances, while all the time being a loving and faithful mother to her three daughters, Sam, Molly, and Kristina.

Nancy won her second Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy, this time for her role as Alexis in 2012, and has been a multi-nominee in the Lead Actress category for her performances on the ABC daytime drama series.

Kate Grahn, Nancy’s daughter took to social media within the last few hours since we posted this story to share a video on how thankful she and her mom are to GH fans and Nancy’s time on the show which afforded her the ability to have and raise Kate.  Check that out below.

Here’s to Nancy for giving us 25 years of her on-screen work as Alexis!

Congratulate Nancy and tell us your favorite Alexis Davis moments via the comment section.
