On this past Thursday night’s episode of the Blog Talk Radio series, TOLN Soaps Live with Michael Fairman, special guests Florencia Lozano (Tea Delgado)and Kelley Missal (Dani Manning) of One Life to Live chatted on all things Tea and Dani, and much more, during their live interview with Michael and then fielding some great questions from callers.

Some of the subjects discussed where the gals  gave their thoughts on included: the return of fan favorites Trevor St. John (Victor Jr.) and Roger Howarth (Todd Manning), what will happen in the season finale of OLTL this Monday in regards to Dani’s date with the much older Arturo (Paolo Seganti) with her mother being a possible witness to it since they are both attending the same Man of the Year Gala?

Plus, Florencia offers up what it was like crossing over to General Hospital as Tea in the gut-wrenching baby-switch storyline in which Tea’s baby actually died, and Kelley weighs in on if the ultimate man for Dani is Matthew Buchanan (Rob Gorrie)?   Here are a few excerpts, but make sure to listen to the entire broadcast for more insight below!

KELLEY on working with Trevor St. John again: “It was awesome. I can’t believe he really came back and he was standing there in a scene us.  It was crazy   I love Trevor.  He keeps it so fresh and different. He plays odd beats that keep you on your toes.”

FLORENCIA on why she thinks the pairing of Tea and Victor Jr. resonated with so many people and fans: “Trevor is an amazing actor. We approach things differently in some ways, but we work really well together and respect each others process.  He is really good at making me lighten up.  I can hold off and be really tight sometimes. I want to it to be heartfelt and truthful, and his playful way of working is a really good combination with what I do. It’s a chemistry that builds on itself, and gives birth to something interesting, I think.”

FLORENCIA on fans thinking she and Trevor are “hot” on screen together:  “Sure, it’s OK! He is beautiful man and an intelligent man, what’s not hot about him? He is awesome.”

KELLEY on Dani’s final heart-breaking scene with Todd, where he tells her he is leaving town: “In the last scene, I had been working all day and had been really frazzled. Roger just came on set with a really cool and calm energy, and it was really great to work off.  It was great having him back on the show and I know the fans just adore him!”

FLORENCIA on getting to work on General Hospital in Tea’s emotional storyline where she comes to learn her baby died:  “That was such a trip! General Hospital was the only soap I watched as a kid. Getting to go to L.A., this beautiful sunny town, and drive up to the set of General Hospital, it was so surreal. I thought, ‘This is a dream … this can’t be really happening.’  I was acting with people that I had watched when I was Kelley’s age.  They were super nice and everyone was very welcoming.  It was an alternate universe from One Life to Live. It was L.A., so everyone was laid back and chilled out.  I loved working in that setting.  I loved working with Michael Easton(Ex-John, now Silas) there, and to see him.  I miss him a lot.  I love acting with him. The same thing goes with Roger Howarth and Kristen Alderson (Ex-Starr, now Kiki).  I didn’t really get to act with Kristen, but they were all there, and that made me feel at home.  It was a blast.

KELLEY on if Matthew is ultimately guy for Dani: “I don’t know.  There are two sides to it. Matthew has been in Dani’s life for awhile, and she kind of pushed away to be with Nate (Lenny Platt),  and they never addressed the Nate storyline.  I wished they had given it an explanation or something, because that could really define things. You never saw how Matthew and Dani got close again, and now they are living together right now, which is crazy!  I think it’s one of those things where there is always going to be spark and chemistry.  Rob Gorrie (Matthew) coming in has just done an excellent job.  I can’t believe how hard it would be to come into play someone else’s character and make it work, but he has just done it brilliantly.  No matter what happens with this Arturo thing, I wish for Dani that she meets someone who just does her no wrong.  She is so conditioned to men treating her poorly. I think she needs to be shown that there is a guy in the future, around her age that is not going to hurt her or take advantage of her.  Even Matthew has hurt her! But, you never know.”

So what do you think of Florencia and Trevor as Tea and Victor Jr.? Were they, are they, one of the hottest couples on soaps?  Should Matthew ultimately be the man for Dani? What did you think of Florencia’s story when she crossed over to GH? Did you need hankies at the final scene on OLTL in season one, when Todd says goodbye to Dani?  Share your thoughts!

Haha. I think it sounds like Florencia would jump ship if she could relocate to LA and GH! Nice that they both adore their ol’ acting mates from Trevor to Michael Easton.

Love Dani & Matthew together and now that they are older, would be a great pairing I think. Sorry, but I can’t stand Tea’ screaming all the time and Victor didn’t do much for me either, but love Todd & Blair!! Not happy they killed off Tea’ baby for a GH storyline. ME belongs on OLTL as John McBain, plain and simple!

Agree. Many OLTL relationships and storylines suffered on GH. Tea lost her baby for Sam, Jolie broke up to facilitate stupid McBam, Cole and Hope died so Starr could stay in PC. With the reboot yes it would be nice to have the original actors portraying their characters especially ME as John McBain. It is very unfair GH destroyed so much.

Is Trevor St. John coming back? I guess I’ve never heard for sure. Can someone tell me?

I like how Trevor St, John never lets any one know that he will be filming…

His reappearance, twice now, is worth so much more when we don’t know.

I feel sorry for all the actors on OLTL stuck on a show they only appear on one or at most twice a week for part of the year. They are all top notch actors and deserve so much better

I know.. They get little air time/an hour a week and pay in comparison with GH..
And knowing there are those who want RH and ME to go back to OL and give up their 5 day week, all year, great pay and benefits, etc just so they can have Todd and McBain on OL , that is so stupid and selfish to want them/RH ME to have so very much less..
The 3 are doing way way better with GH..

Love Téa & Victor! Honestly, don’t think Matthew should be with Destiny or Dani. I didn’t and still don’t like Téa’s storyline on GH for the mere fact that they killed off her baby, don’t like it at all!

So what do you think of Florencia and Trevor as Tea and Todd>>>>. I think this is a bizarre question, Michael. I hated it. Trevor was horrible as fake Todd and FL is way too loud.

LOVE Victor & Tea together. They are hot!
Loved seeing Tea on GH, but hated that they killed her baby.
Don’t know about Matthew and Dani – but I look forward to seeing it all play out. I do hope they mention Nate at least…

I JUST LOVED VICTOR AND TEA TOGETHER. THEY ARE SO HOT HOT HOT!!!!!!!!!!! DID NOT LIKE THAT THEY KILLED TEA AND VICTOR’S SON JUST FOR A STORY FOR JASON AND SAM. I ALSO LOVE BEING SURPRISED WHEN TREVOR COMES TO OLTL. RH IS GOOD AS TODD, BUT ALSO THOUGHT TREVOR WAS SOMEWHAT BETTER. CANNOT WAIT FOR SECOND SEASON TO BEGIN HOPING THAT TREVOR WILL RETURN TO LLANVIEW AND ESPECIALLY TEA.

well, florencia and trevor are okay, but personally I think his hottest pairing was between him and Renee Goldsberry!!! And they never even got a real chance to be together! But the scenes we did get with them were soo Hot!! Especially the elevator scene. The chemistry between the 2 of them for me, was unreal!!. I did like the potential pairing of him and Gina as Kelly. Bottom line, I just love Trevor!!! I will tune in to OLTL whenever he’s on, but when he’s not, can’t do it. I really liked his recent TV Movie too, Finding Normal.… Read more »

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.
