OLTL's Doris Belack has passed away at Age 85!

One of the most popular, endearing and original cast members of One Life to Live, actress Doris Belack, best most known for her role as Anna Wolek Craig,  has died of natural causes in Manhattan at age 85.  Belack died a few days ago on October 4th.

Belack played Anna from 1968-1977, and played the sister to Dr. Larry Wolek (Michael Storm) and was the wife of Dr. Jim Craig (Nat Polen).   Doris also appeared in daytime roles on Edge of Night, The Doctors, and Another World.

In primetime, Belack appeared on episodes of Law & Order, Everwood, Sisters, and The Golden Girls among others. Belack’s feature film credits included Tootsie, in which she played the executive producer of the soap opera within the movie.  Her husband of 65 years, Tony Award winning producer Philip Rose, died just four months ago.  A joint memorial for Belack and Rose will be held October 17 at noon at the Ambassador Theater. It will be open to the public.

On-Air On-Soaps fondly remembers the Woleks and the Craigs of Llanview, and sends our condolences to Doris’s family and friends.

Ah, this brings me back to the One Life to Live of yesteryear. Anna was one of my favorite characters and I was so sad when Doris Belack left the show. Doris, rest in peace and all the best to your family.

I must have started watching OLTL in ’77 instead of ’78 then,
because I do remember Doris in the role of Anna.
I also remember her role in Tootsie…she had a couple of pretty funny lines as I recall.
Sad news on her passing.

I watched OLTL during that time with my mother and remember Anna Wolek too. Vinny, Larry…..good stuff. I would see her on L&O and always remember OLTL. I thought she looked the same too! Amazing she was married 65 years and her husband passed away recently.
Thanks for posting.

I had a glimmer of hope that Frank Valentini might bring Anna and Larry back for a quick moment near the end, sadly that can’t happen now. She was one of the most memorable actors and characters from One Life to Live and despite later recasts the only Anna.

After speculation a few years back that at some point, Milo Ventimiglia would find his way onto the hit comedy, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, that would reunite him with his former Gilmore Girls boss, Amy Sherman-Palladino, now appears to be coming true!

News out of TV Line reports that Milo will guest star in season four of the series.  However, details of who he will play are being kept under wraps.

Ventimiglia will be the second cast member from This Is Us to appear on Maisel, following Sterling K. Brown who appeared in season 3.

The fourth season of the Amazon Prime series has been in production since January – after plenty of stops and starts due to Covid-19 and restrictions.

Gilmore Girl fans remember Ventimiglia as Jess Mariano, the troubled love interest of Rory Gilmore.

Ventimiglia will also wrap his time as Jack on This Is Us, when the show finishes its upcoming sixth and final season of the NBC drama.
