OLTL's Kassie DePaiva On The Status Of Blair and Todd …. and Trevor St. John!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

Kassie DePaiva went back to work this week in the role of Blair Cramer in the One Life to Live reboot!  While everyone is getting their footing being back in the soap saddle again, DePaiva was extremely enthusiastic of Prospect Park’s hands-on efforts with production and bringing the soaps back to life online.

In a new interview with Tainted Dreams blogger and noted soap opera columnist Carolyn Hinsey, DePaiva spoke of what to possibly look for when Todd (Roger Howarth) and Blair share scenes again in Llanview, and where the story picks up! And of course, the million dollar question is addressed …  what about a possible return by Trevor St. John as Victor Jr?  Here are a few interesting excerpts from the chat below!

Kassie on where we find Blair when One Life to Live picks up the story again:  “Blair is pretty much where she was. They’re addressing what happened at the end of OLTL, not what went on in Port Charles [on GH]. There’s a Tomas reference, then we pick up with her relationship with Todd.  Roger Howarth is there. Todd comes back to town because of a family issue, and Blair and Todd pick up where they left off. They have a lot of unfinished business, a lot of rich history to pull from. Fans need to know that (head writer) Susie Bedsow Horgan was producing OLTL during the ‘Golden Balloon’ wedding, and she honors that.

Kassie on what she can say about the possibility of a return of Trevor St. John as very much alive Victor Jr:  “We’ve got to address something there – that was the last shot of the episode! That’s all I’m going to say.”

So One Lifers, how do you want to see the story pick-up between Blair and Todd?  Do you think the show will address where Victor Jr.  is too?  Let us know!

Really really hoping Trevor St. John is back, even if it’s just for a short time. Also still believe Starr should be back in Llanview. There is nothing in Port Charles for her, except for a boyfriend that will never last. I know Kristen Alderson moved to LA so not even sure if she even wants to move to CT to continue to play Starr but would love to see her return. After watching her grow up on the show, it would be hard to see a Starr recast. It’ll be a bit easier seeing a different Matthew, as I… Read more »

I am sorry, but I would rather Star stay in Port Charles. I like her with Michael. Also keep in mind Todd is going back to GH so there is something there for her. As for not being related…. The role of Michael on OLTL was recasted! I am not sure I will even be watching OLTL. Too much time has gone by and GH has me hooked, so I am not sure it matters

I totally agree. Maybe she and Michael can go back and forth between the two shows.

I hope Star stays on GH. Her and Michael work well together. Todd and John need to stay on GH, there stories are not over. OLTL can survive without them, Trevor St. John needs to be back on OLTL to replace Todd, either as Todd or as Victor Jr. Natalie does not need John, he works better with Sam.

Todd and John’s stories are far from over on OLTL and since they are OLTL characters, they need to be on OLTL. GH can survive without OUR characters! TSJ will be back as Todd however, John and Natalie had just gotten back together and John had just found out that Liam is indeed his son, Natalie needs John and so does HIS SON, Let Sam find someone else to play daddy to Danny and “replace” Jason!

According latest news today, all 3 actors from OLTL will come back to GH with new characters because ABC doesn’t want to deal with legal issue anymore. I, for one, am glad that the 3 are back regardless of which characters they play. OLTL can have Todd Manning, we GH will have the great Roger Howarth! 🙂

as I understand it, Roger, Kristen and Michael are all on contract with ABC, so moving to CT is not going to happen, unless they are asked to come back (think only Roger is heading back for a few weeks only), and they would have to break the contract with ABC. but it would be nice to have Todd, Star and John on both soaps and just have two storylines, or just ocassional OLTL crossovers…. they had all moved out of llanview, so it’s not necessary to have them there all the time. If Trevor doesn’t want to return to… Read more »

True, I think Todd (Roger Howarth) belongs on OLTL. We OLTL fans have loved him since what 94 and GH loved him for what half a year? nevertheless, his talents can’t be ignored and it’s easy to fall in love with his character. It’s obvious to me that he’s the one that is most in demand for both shows! I can’t say I blame them but in the long run It really should be up to RH where he wants to work! I’m going to watch OLTL regardless if he’s on the show on not! and I am a RH… Read more »

Michael, can you please update us on if and when “Starr” and “John” may show up on OLTL 2.0? It seems that on GH Todd is getting strange calls from “Danni” so that may lead into why he shows up in Llanview for “family issure”. I believe that someday hopefully soon Trevor will indeed show up and it will be discovered that he is actually indeed the real “Todd” and that Roger is “Victor”

I LOVE TEA DELGATO!!!! Anyhow, They recast Erin Turpey as Jessica.. if they can recast Jessica, they can recast Starr. Kirsten Alderson and Eddie Alderson were saying they were not going to OLTL 2.0 before OLTL ended on ABC. Kirsten isn’t coming back, and Starr is the main ‘younger’ character on the show, how long can the show go on without her? Sorry K-Alderson fans.. she’s not coming back. My feeling is that Todd(Roger Howarth) will be mainly on GH, but will make appearances from time to time in Llanview, per an agreement to continue his usage on GH. I… Read more »

Are you serious. They brought back the original Jessica. I liked the last Jessica bree Wiliamson much better. Kristin Alderson from what I read is coming back- but I guess she could just come back on for a while. Are you sure she’s not oming back? I feel badly for her then because she’s not allowed to play star on GH.

Got to love Kassie, she is such a sweetheart. I did read something the other day that made me laugh out loud regarding folk fussing over the character of Todd and who he (Tea/Blair) belongs with on OLTL: “people should be happy – everyone gets a Todd!” In the event there is a return of TSJ’s Todd ( aka Victor) and the given that RH’s Todd is back as well (in at least some capacity) then Everyone gets a Todd. Got to love that too!

Gillian
Guest

I totally agree Tali (not Smith)! Kassie is a class act! I was hoping for crossovers for RH & then for him to return to GH while TSJ stays on OLTL. It would be great to have Victor in Llanview & Todd in PC. Best of both worlds IMHO (no hating please – I’m entitled to my opinion).

I never cared for Todd while he was at OLTL, period, regardless which actors portrayed him. RH’s Todd at GH, on the other hand, is magnificient! Love his chemistry with LW’s Carly.

I cannot wait to see OLTL!! I really believe that they need Michael Easton to come back (please do not recast John McBain – just don’t have the role if you can’t get Michael Easton).

The few times Todd and Victor had scenes together were electric! I hope they have scenes together. They’re mesmerizing together!

I love Trevor St. John and I LOVED him playing Todd (or Victor Jr., now.), especially his chemistry and lovestory with Tea. However, I do not want him on this version of One Life to Live. I think he can do a lot better than an online show. I don’t care if I’m the only one, but I can’t stand this whole Prospect Park mess.

I sure as hell hope the creator of OLTL Agnes Nixon gets a say in the negations as to where the legacy characters SHE created end up. If I were her I wouldn’t want them on another Soap which I did not create. When the actor contracts are up if they want to stay on GH let them stay with new names and return the CHARATERS back to where they belong on One Life To Live!! Funny people like Niki are blaming Prospect Park for this mess when it was ABC and their board members who all voted to get… Read more »

Kassie is a legend. She’s soooo good as Blair and she brought her Supercoupling with Roger Howarth to life — as did he. I really hope their storyline gets the center status it deserves — and I hope Roger cooperates!

I can not wait to see Trevor come back and be revealed that he is indeed Todd, Then Vic Jr ((RH)) can go back to GH and OLTL fans never has to see him again! NOW that is what I call a Win WIn Situation!

After seeing the HOT chem between Todd and Carly, I will never see Todd and Blair as a couple, again..
Todd and Carly are great together and to see the same old crap of Todd and Blair (yawn) will never be the same, not now after seeing Todd’s love for Carly ..

OMG. I love Todd and Carly too! Their last two day scenes (before he headed out to landview) were so touching. I love how he tenderly loves her and how she crumbled when he gently embraced her (from behind) saying “you do in my life”. LW and RH hit it out of the park in that scene. There is just not enough words to describe the emotion and the love these two character share.

Well you don’t have to see Todd with Blair because Todd will be back with Tea and Vic Jr ((RH)) can go back to GH and yous can have Varly or Cictor with RH and LW’s amazing chemistry!!

@joliefanForever. RH playing Vic Jr at GH?!! Why would GH want to get into another stupid legal issue by using yet another OLTL’s character? I don’t care what name they give RoHo’s character with, as long as that same character comes back to GH and loves Carly so tenderly is all that matters. Can’t wait for the remaining 3 weeks stint at landview is over so he can be back where his heart belongs! 🙂

Because Vic Jr has no place on OLTL, I’m sure PP would have no problem letting GH have Victor Lord Jr the character that RC created. Let Vic Jr become his own man on GH with Carly…..You don’t seem to understand PP does not have to let GH use the character of Todd Manning, Todd Manning is our resident bad boy and he needs to be on OLTL FULL TIME, Bring in TSJ. It can and more than likely will be revealed that TSJ is indeed Todd and RH is VIc Jr, Since RH is going back to GH he… Read more »

By Kassie’s reaction to the Victor question and reactions from other interviews I’m guessing TSJ is coming back but this idea of Victor in Llanview and Todd in PC is ridiculous they are both OLTL characters and them being anywhere else is an abomonation. I know why don’t they give Todd and Victor a triplet and send him to Pine Valley (Sarcasm). Like I said Victor aka TSJ is the man. And Starr, Todd, and John have no business in GH. ABC are the bad guys here the actors could do what they want but these characters belong on ONE… Read more »

Nice post Edwin! But since RH is going back to GH let him go back as Vic Jr and TSJ can stay as the one and only Todd Manning like we always knew he was! I agree that John and “Todd” don’t need to be on GH but I can’t see any reason for Starr to return unless they bring back Cole and Hope! Otherwise Great post!

I wasn’t gonna comment, but i have something to say. It cracks me up the entitlement that the GH fans on here feel about the OLTL characters. They are the property of PP & if you read Michael Fairmain story you would see it was ABC once along with FV & RC are blameless in this either. The bottom line is used them &50th anniversary bringing all the historic GH characters back, but make no mistake once they start leaving & when the three actors come back they cannot have any characters of there OLTL & since either Caleb was… Read more »

OLTL Favorite Susan Batten to Guest-Star on General Hospital

A very familiar face to the town of Llanview and the beloved One Life to Live, will be appearing on your screens this week on General Hospital.

Susan Batten (Ex-Luna Moody, OLTL) will make a few guest appearances in scenes with Sasha played by Sofia Mattsson.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Batten will play the role of home shopping-star Flora Gardens!

Batten former boss, Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) called Susan and said about the role: , “Okay, there’s this character named Flora Gardens.”  To which Susan responded, “Does she have teeth?”   After the two shared a laugh, Susan said “yes’ to the role.

OLTL fans will remember Luna’s torrid relationship with Max Holden (James DePaiva).

The actress/writer/producer reported that she was a ‘still very nervous’ acting on soap again (she last appeared on One Life in 2012), but said once she got into the rhythm of the shooting and delivering the lines it was all good.

So, looking forward to seeing Susan on GH? Comment below. But first, take a moment to stroll down memory lane in this clip from OLTL, when Max proposes to Luna.

Peter Bergman Signs 5-Year Deal with The Young and the Restless

Some of the hottest news on Daytime Emmy night was the reveal that 23-time Daytime Emmy nominee, and 3-time Emmy-winner, Peter Bergman is staying put at The Young and the Restless for quite some time to come, in fact, at least five more years.

Bergman, who plays Genoa City staple, Jack Abbott, has inked a new five-year deal to stay with the CBS daytime drama series, which is a significant contract in the world of soaps.  The usual contact for actors is somewhere between one and four years, with thirteen-week or twenty-six-week cycle, if the show were to not pick up an actors option.

While Y&R has been renewed thus far through the 2024 TV season, it would seem this move to ensure Bergman is sticking around as the show moves past its 50th year on the air, is a vote of confidence by Sony Pictures Television and CBS that the top-rated daytime drama will live on.

Deadline first reported the contract news.  Peter joined Y&R back in 1989, after first successful soap foray on All My Children as Dr, Cliff Warner.

So, what do you think about Peter signing on for five more years at Y&R? Comment below.
