OLTL Poll: What Character Will You Miss the Most?

Courtesy/ABC

It is almost time to say goodbye to the citizens we love from Llanview and One Life to Live. So, now its time to think in your heart of hearts, “What character will you miss the most when One Life ends its network television run this Friday?”

On-Air On-Soaps have provided you with an opportunity to let your voices be heard. Cast you vote in our OLTL poll now through Friday night, January 13 2012 by 6PM PST/9PMEST. You can only vote once from one IP address, so make it count! The ballot is only for characters that must have appeared on One Life to Live from at least six months from the end of its run.

And, if there is a character you feel you will really long for on the current canvas that isn’t represented here, you can select the OTHER option. There, you can go ahead and write he or she in! Remember, this poll is for current characters in the cast, not characters who have not appeared on the series for years.

We will announce the results on Friday night’s BlazinRy and BlogTalkRadio broadcast event, The OLTL Finale Special – After the Show with Michael Fairman with special casts, Melissa Archer, John-Paul Lavoisier and Kristen Alderson live 7PMPST/10PMEST.

So after the jump vote in our OLTL Poll: What Character Will You Miss the Most?

I voted for Nora because Hillary B. Smith is the reason I started watching OLTL in the 1st. place.

What an impossible question to answer. One of the best things about OLTL was the balance of the ensemble cast. I suppose Viki because she represents the ideal spouse, mother, sister, aunt, best friend, and all-around, ethical, loving human being we all wish we had in our lives. But surely, one of the reasons for OLTL’s long-term sustainability and successful is the presence of so many endearing characters played by exceptional performers. What would Viki be without Dorian? Who could forget the arguments and passion between Victor/Todd and Tea? Who didn’t smile every time Roxy, David, or Sam appeared? I… Read more »

David replied January 14th, 2012 at 9:15 am Trevor was good but Roger is THE Todd. Who knows? Trevor and the show said one thing but he appeared in the finale. Trevor may be exploring other possiblities. And with the finale, Trevor may join GH in the future. But Trevor is a master of emotions….. I would love to see him up against Sonny on GH. Both standing there cool, calm, or going so deep you don’t know where they are going to take you to, or just playing playful.. I would love to see them opposite one another standing… Read more »

PS. Because (Sonny) Maurice Bernard is a master of emotions too. Howarth, also very complex, doesn’t have that range. He was always mostly dark (good at it) but no so multi- layered.

Viki, Viki, Viki- there is NO actress better than Erika Slezak!! Love, love, love her! I can’t imagine not watching her everyday- shes always been a part of my life. So very sad!

She is the Meryl Streep of Daytime, and should go do Feature Films, and Broadway, and win Emmy’s and Oscar’s, and show those over payed actor’s in Hollywood how to act.

Absolutely- well said! I have always thought of her as being a great combination of the best qualities of Meryl Streep and Julie Andrews! I can’t praise her enough!

Vicki. She was like a surrogate mother. And one could tell she lives/lived her life REAL life with the same discipline that she plays her character (when the character is vicki/not the alter’s). But I have to throw a NON to Robin Strasser whom I’ve been upset she isnot in the historic picture finale. I hope they picture shop her picture into the photo. Robin poured her life blood into that show and gained ratings because of it. I will dearly miss Trevor St.John, whom it took awhile for me to warm up to him, BUT boy did he play… Read more »

I voted Viki. She is the reason I started watching all those years ago and she continued to be the reason I still watched. I will miss the entire ensemble but my favorite was Viki (Erika Slezak).

Viki was my first obvious choice too but what is the show without everyone else? How can we just name one character? Better if they’d asked who would we miss the least, I guess. That might still be hard, given this particularly excellent cast. This is one time I really love everyone on a show. Most times there are a few you can do without or just don’t take to but gosh, I love this group.

Trevor St. John….Can’t believe GH did not choose him over Howarth !

1loveabcsoaps
Guest
1loveabcsoaps

Exactly. If you lo look on this site, under the picture where they annouce that the Mannings are going to GH, I get into a LONG thing about that. Howarth has left the role more times than one can count, only to be found on another channel IMMEDIATELY after. St. John never left the role , and stayed on for the entire 8 years. OLTL wouldn’t allow him to stay as he wanted to stay on until the finale. They treated him as ” take a bow and be dismissed”. Howarth gets to get a new gig in sunny california… Read more »

I agree but it makes sense that it is Roger because he is Todd Manning and the other Todd AKA Victor is suppose to be dead. His connection now is Tea, Dani and Sam.

I liked Trevor much better then Roger, he is one of the best actors from that show, mean, funny, childlike, sexy he had it all!

I am heartbroken over the treatment of Trevor St. John…after all the years of true loyalty. I wish him all the best and hope he makes it as a leading actor. He is an amazing talent and I have a huge amount of respect for him. I love you Trevor !

I voted for Nora. I so highly identified with her strength, her chutzpah, her devotion to her family. Hilary B Smith took Nora and ran and never looked back. Even in a 9 month coma, I never gave up and neither did Nora. Through medical turmoil, arch nemesis, train wrecks and more, she always bounced back. I think I identified with her most was when she found herself totally off guard when Daniel admitted her was gay. I was going through the same situation and the pain, the humiliation Nora shown mirrored my own. I will miss Nora most of… Read more »

I selected Viki. Her longevity is amazing for a televison character. I remember when Erika Slezak took over the role. I also recall the first two actresses to portray Viki.
Just like all the fans of this series, I am truly saddened today.

I have watched the show since Day 1, I remember Meredith, Larry Vinnie, Joe even the evil Victor Lord. I despise ABC and when the lights go out in Landview, they go out on ABC as well. We don’t want talk shows, cooking shows, there’s already too many. We want what we grew up with, our OTHER FAMILY OLTL…. I know I got a little off base but I am so sad, cried all week and today I don’t know what I’ll do… My heart belongs to Todd, from the first day I have loved Todd…. love all the rest… Read more »

Mishael Morgan Reveals Why She’s Taken ‘A Bit of a Step Back’ From Y&R and Gone on Recurring Status

This past June, we all celebrated the groundbreaking victory of The Young and the Restless‘ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair) as the first Black actress to ever win in the Lead Actress in a Drama Series category during the 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

In the months that followed, Mishael has not been seen as much on the top-rated CBS daytime drama, plus when fans noticed she was no longer in the opening main credits, it got them wondering just what is Morgan’s status with the show.

Finally today, via video on her Instagram story, Mishael shared some news after finishing her day of taping in Genoa City.

The Emmy-winner revealed she has indeed gone on recurring status with the show: “I just wrapped my last scenes back at Y&R, and I just wanted to let the cat out of the bag a little bit.  A lot of people have noticed that my name is not on the main credits anymore, and I wanted everybody to know that it was my decision.  I decided, actually, back in December, that I wanted to take a bit of a step back from the show.  I just felt like at this point in my life and this point in my career, I wanted to mix things up a little bit. But Y&R will always be home. I have so appreciated this safe place to land that they have given me, so I know that I can be back. They are like family to me, and coming back just reminds me of that.”

Morgan also thanked the loyal viewers and her followers expressing, “I’m so appreciative of you guys, and all the fans who have supported me along this Y&R journey. But I’m still on it, I’m still going to be recurring, so you’ll still catch me in Genoa City.”

The talented star ended with a tease of projects and roles to come, telling her fans to, “Keep looking out for new things.”

So will you miss not seeing Mishael as much on Y&R?  Are you exciting to see what roles and projects she gets involved with next? Are you glad she is still recurring with the show and will continue to make appearances in stories? Comment below.

GH’s Nancy Lee Grahn Shares Excerpt From Her Upcoming Memoir

In celebration of beginning her 27th year as Alexis Davis on General Hospital, two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, decided to mark the occasion by revealing to her longtime fans an excerpt from her upcoming memoir due out in 2023.

Taking to her official Facebook page, Nancy shared the excerpt starting with contained some of the back-history of her soap opera alter-ego : “I play the role of Alexis Davis. I am a public defender, prosecutor, personnel injury, civil, malpractice, tax and family attorney. I am the bastard child of Mikos Cassadine who died after being thrown into his own weather machine which he designed to freeze the world. My mother, Kristen Bergman was a famous opera singer whose throat was slit by my father’s wife, Helena. Unhappy with the turn of events, I hurled my frail 75 year old stepmother off a five hundred foot parapet slamming her onto jagged rock only for her to walk away unscathed. Even more determined, I shoved her off a thousand foot cliff into the frigid subzero ocean. Helena not only survived unscathed, she apparently scaled 1000 feet up the cliff and continued to wreak havoc on Port Charles.”

Nancy closed the excerpt with some special acknowledgements: “Always so grateful to have an ongoing contract, my own parking space and people I’ve never met who come up to me regularly and tell me how much younger I look in person. It’s a gift that I have been able to and still get to do what I love to do for such a gloriously long time. I love my job the most because it is the job that gave me the security I needed to greenlight Kate as a single mother, raise her while being able to give her the things I dreamed of giving her, put her through school all the way through college, and will hopefully allow me to spoil my grandchildren. The enormous love & gratitude I have for ABC and Disney for allowing me the privilege of working for them is immeasurable. But the real truth is without the support from all of you, this day would not be what it is. As always, I see you and thank you.”

Make sure to read the entire excerpt.  Now let us know, are you looking forward to what Nancy will share in her upcoming memoir? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
