Yesterday, a fantastic group of fans gathered together out front of One Life to Live’s studio in New York City to celebrate and pay tribute to their favorite daytime drama as OLTL celebrated its 43rd anniversary.

One Life to Live first aired on July 15, 1968 and some 43 years later and amidst the emotional ups and downs for the cast and crew and its long time fans over the last several months, with the network cancellation and then the stunning announcement that the show will eventually move to the Internet, a good time was had by all.

Many familiar faces from Llanview stopped by and took part in the block party including: David Gregory, Gina Tognoni, Ilene Kristen, Kelley Missal, Andrew Trischitta, Kristen Alderson, Kassie DePaiva, Sean Ringgold, Austin Peck, Barret Helms, Shenell Edmonds and head writer, Ron Carlivati!

View our photo gallery of the event with an awesome display of love for Llanview after the jump!

I noticed Patricia Elliott at about 3:22 on the video. Does that mean she was at the studio that day to be on the show, I hope so!

You know every time a soap gets axed you bring all the characters back you wrote out for what purpose? Maybe they might try figureing out that’s why they get cancelled. Bring on new faces you don’t care about like the Ford Brothers. Then we top it off with 8 years of Trevor St. John not really being Todd. As Eric Braeden says Too many cooks in the kitchen. Sad demise of what used to be an escape for everybody now is like a bad train wreck!

Days Of Our Lives

Sal Stowers On Final DAYS Airdate Shares: “What An Incredible Journey These Past Seven Years Have Been”; Lamon Archey Adds, “Days fans, THANK YOU! We made a SUPERCOUPLE & a SUPERFAMILY #ELANI”

That’s a wrap for both Sal Stowers and Lamon Archey and their on-screen alter egos, Lani and Eli Grant.  Today on the July 1st episode of Days of our Lives,  the couple exited Salem paving the way for the real-life departures of Sal and Lamon who are going on to pursue other TV and film roles.

On her final airdate, Sal tweeted: “What an incredible journey these past seven years have been. To all our #Elani crew and #Days fans thank you for loving and supporting us the way you did. We will miss you much, I will miss you. Xx”

Lamon Archey also added his own tweets, sharing: “#Days fans, THANK YOU! We made a #SUPERCOUPLE & a #SUPERFAMILY #ELANI”

In story, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) had a special farewell for Eli, and Abe (James Reynolds) adopted Lani so he could be her father again, in very touching moments on the air-show.

Still the departures of Sal and Lamon, who became quite the popular duo as #Elani, will be a very big blow for the long-running NBC soap opera.  But in soap operas, you never know when your favorite actors or characters might return.

So, sad to see Lamon and Sal as Eli and Lani exit Salem today? Comment below.
