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.

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 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 »

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 »

Jensen Ackles Shares Heartfelt Message on Death of ‘Rust’ DP Halyna Hutchins: “This Has Been a Tragedy of Epic Proportions”

Former Days of our Lives and Supernatural star, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric and Ex-Dean)  took to his Instagram over the weekend to pay tribute to cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins who was tragically killed in New Mexico, on the set of the film Rust in which Ackles co-starred with Alec Baldwin and Frances Fisher. Baldwin is also one of the producers of the film.

Last Thursday, in the initial investigation reports surfaced that Baldwin discharged a “prop gun” leading to the death of Hutchins and injuring director, Joel Souza.  Since that time it has been reported that Baldwin was told by the assistant director, David Halls, that the weapon was a “cold gun” meaning not loaded with live rounds following its preparation by the film set’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez.  But in his affidavit statement, Halls says he was unaware that the prop gun contained live rounds when it was given to Baldwin for his scene.

The scene Baldwin was rehearsing was inside a church building at the Bonanza Creek Ranch. In new affidavit’s, it was noted that Baldwin was ‘cross drawing’ the weapon and pointing the gun towards the camera lens.

A grief-stricken Ackles shared:  “I’m not even sure where to start.  This has been a tragedy of epic proportions that we are all still processing. Earlier last week I felt compelled to tell Halyna just how awesome I thought she was. I told her how incredible I thought her camera shots were and just how exciting it was to watch her and her team work. Truly. She laughed and said thank you and gave me a hug. I’ll forever be thankful we had that moment.  She had a spunk and passion that infected the entire crew from the top down. She was an inspiration. My heart and prayers go out to Halyna’s husband, son and the rest of her family. There just aren’t enough words to express what an immense loss this is. She will be incredibly missed by all of us who knew and admired her.”

Since Hutchins’ death, a video also surfaced of Ackles discussing his concerns for gun safety on the set of Rust at a Supernatural convention in Colorado prior to the tragedy.

Jensen told the crowd: “I’ve got a 6 a.m. call tomorrow to have a big shoot-out. They had me pick my gun. They were like, ‘Alright, what gun would you like?’ and I was like, ‘I don’t know?’ and the armorer was like, ‘Do you have gun experience?’ I was like, ‘A little.’ And she’s like, ‘OK, well, this is how you load it, this is how we check it and make sure it’s safe. “So she’s like, ‘OK, I’m gonna put some blanks in there and I want you to just go and fire off a couple rounds towards the hill.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ So I put the belt on, I put the gun there, and I walked out and she’s like, ‘Just make sure that you know, you pull the hammer all the way back and you aim at your target.’ And I was like, ‘OK, I got it.’  The footage was originally on You Tube, but now has been taken down.

The investigation remains and open and active on what occurred on the set of Rust, according to the Santa Fe New Mexico Sheriff’s office.

So, what do you think about Jensen’s tribute in the wake of the Rust tragedy? Comment below.
