On-Air On-Soaps is very excited about all the plans in the works for you, the long time fans of One Life to Live, as it begins its countdown over the next few months of episodes to its network television conclusion on ABC.

The returns continue and they are quite intriguing! John Wesley Shipp who was murdered as father-from-hell, Eddie Ford by Matthew Buchanan is returning during the finale week! The Daytime Emmy Award winning actor announced it on his Facebook page, by teasing the following! “The ideas for this last week of OLTL on ABC truly approach brilliance; when I was told, roughly, what I would be asked to do, it was not what I had thought, and man was I psyched. I tripped on the idea for a week before I ever got the script lol. Kudos to Ron Calivati and his staff, to Exec Producer Frank Valentini whose praises I continue to sing (some show is going to grab him up if they’re not careful) and a technical crew that not only functions with the proficiency that comes from doing this alot of years, but every time you give, they give back, and you feel it.”

Then One Life fans will get some interesting revelations when Tonya Walker Davidson returns as Alex Olanov on Thursday November 17th!  Tonya originated the role of Alex in 1990 and played it until 1997.  She was last seen as Alex in March of this year.   “For years I have been asked to bring the notorious Alex Olanov back to One Life to Live, where she usually finds herself in the middle of a sinister plot,” said Ms. Davidson. “I relish the opportunity to bring Alex back to OLTL with surprises that even shocked me.”

So are you excited about the upcoming revelations with Alex? And Eddie’s mysterious return? Let us know!

Yes! Yes! YES! Very excited!! So glad that Tonja Walker will be back as Alex. I wonder what her surprises are? I really hope that Tonja will make the move with Prospect Park. I love John Wesley Shipp’s reaction to the script. Isn’t Frank Valentini going to be with Prospect for OLTL 2.0? I’m very curious about Eddie Ford’s return…hmmm….is he really dead?

YIPPEE!!!!!! JWS is returning to OLTL He should not have left. Matthew should have killed Prick the Porno Producer, instead of Our beloved Eddie. A friend of mine met JWS on Veterans’ Day, the day he taped his scenes.

@ Iakovos: I am the person Patience DePhazio was referring to. I met him as he was leaving the ABC building. Let’s just say he is more like ‘Kelly Nelson’, the character he played on THE GUIDING LIGHT in the early ’80s. The sweetest guy on the planet. He was more happy to meet me as I was to meet him since we have been communicating of FACEBOOK for the last few years.

So glad that Alex is coming back, hope she stays until the network end (along with Tina, Cord and Gabrielle).
I wish OLTL could have brought more favorites back towards the end, Max included. I could have done without a LOT of characters that are on, especially since they aren’t going to Prospect Park so why not go ahead and write them off or show them less? Like Ford, Rama and Vimal’s little sister.

Totally agree. Alex is a true villianious of the 90’s. Seeing her on screen yesterday was hilarious. I hope PP offer her a deal, at least a recurring one if she’s really Cutter’s mother.
