Congratulations are in order for One Life to Live lovebirds, Terri Conn (Aubrey) and Austin Peck (Rick) who recently became engaged! According to a source for Soaps In Depth, Peck proposed to Conn, and then the news of their engagement was confirmed just a weekend ago at Saturday night’s kick-off Emmy bash in Las Vegas at the Nikki Beach held by Innovative Artists.

As many know, Conn and Peck met while they both were working on As the World Turns during their time playing Katie and Brad.  This will be the second marriage for each of them.

On-Air On-Soaps had the opportunity to speak with Conn and Peck backstage in the Winner’s Walk area of the press room after the live telecast of Sunday night’s 38th Annual Daytime Emmys. During our chitchat, Terri and Austin talk about their thoughts on Emmy night, upcoming story for their characters: Aubrey and Rick, and how they feel about the cancellation of OLTL.  Of note, as many had also stated, Terri speaks out that Erika Slezak should have been honored during the telecast for her amazing 40 year run as Viki on One Life to Live. We could not agree with her more!

Watch our cute video interview with Terri and Austin after the jump!

Congratulations to them both!

Great interview :).

That is so cool good for them. They are both taltened actors and from interviews i’ve seen with them seperately they seem to be good people….

Love both of them and wish them success after OLTL goes dark next year.

Mike, I enjoyed your interview with Austin and Terry. Congrats to them on their engagement. Terrry is so good on OLTL. She plays that character perfectly. Now it seems that she has changed her tune and she is left out in the cold. Interesting…Austin plays the sleazy porn producer very well, and from your interview he seems to be hinting that his character will be involved in some nefarious shenanigans. Should be good….

I agree with them TOTALLY withOLTL going off the air why was Slezak not mentioned, they went on and on about Susuan Lucci., and Slezak has six emmys!!

Yeah why not congratulate two people who met on a set and cheated on their spouses because that’s what the soaps are all about, right? Tsk Tsk, we should all be so lucky!

Look how cute! 🙂

Hey wednesday you noticed I did not congratulate them I agreed with them on Erika not being mentioned. Just remember if you cheat once you will cheat again but I really could care less about either one of them personally or really as actors they never impressed me either!!!

They make a cute couple. I saw them at the Grove in Los Angeles on September 1, 2011, walking hand in hand as if they were the only ones there. They seemed very much in LOVE. Good Luck and Best Wishes!!!

Terri cheated on her husband with Austin – she is not “good people”

Congradulations on your marriage. I have enjoyed watching you on Another World and One Life to Live. I am hoping you will return to Days Of Our Lives, Austin and maybe they will write a part for you too Terri. I wish you both much happiness and a long and happy marriage.

Matt Bomer Reveals After Exiting ‘Guiding Light’ He Lost the Role of ‘Superman’ Due to His Sexuality

During the June 10th edition of the Hollywood Reporter Awards Chatter Podcast, former Guiding Light star, Matt Bomer (ex-Ben Reade) revealed the role that got away, and how his exit from the CBS soap opera was precipitated to accommodate his burgeoning movie career, only to have his sexuality wind up costing him the part.

Bomer was seemingly set to play the Man of Steel, Superman, in a motion picture version in the early 2000’s, and as he tells it to Scott Feinberg during the podcast, things went awry.

“I went in on a cattle call for Superman, and then it turned into a month-long audition experience where I was auditioning again and again and again, and flying out to New York and doing chemistry reads, an flying out to LA doing chemistry reads, flying back to New York, flying back to LA to do a screen-test,” recalled Bomer. “And it looked like I was the director’s choice for the role. This is a very early iteration of Superman, written by JJ Abrams called Superman Flyby and it never came to light.”

While Matt was going through the Superman audition process he was still under contract at Guiding Light. Bomer described how he was let go from the soap: “Concurrently on Guiding Light, there was a killer in town, and so I think they needed somebody to pin it all on someone. So, I think the executive producer very kindly wanted to free me up just in case this job came through and said, ‘Hey, you’re gonna be the killer. We’re writing you off the show. Go with my blessing.’ I guess, I basically got fired, but in a generous way.”

Bomer had good reason to believe he was on his way, and the role of Superman was his after he had signed a three picture deal with Warner Brothers. As to why the part of Superman never came to pass, Bomer believes it was due to his sexuality (Later, Matt would come out publicly in 2012).

During the podcast, Matt explained, “Yeah, that’s my understanding That was a time in the industry when something like that could still really be weaponized against you. How and why and who I don’t know. But yeah, that’s my understanding.”

While Matt has not yet played Superman, he has done stellar work in major projects including: Fellow Travelers, Magic Mike, White CollarIn Time, The Normal Heart to name but a few.

What do you think of Guiding Light making Ben that killer in order to free up Bomer to leave the CBS soap to go and become a star in Hollywood and potentially play Superman, only for his sexuality to take the role away from him by the powers-that-be? Comment below.

Jason George Returning to ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Main Cast for Upcoming Season

Soap opera alum Jason George (ex-Michael Bourne, Sunset Beach) is rejoining Grey’s Anatomy as a series regular for its upcoming 21st season.

According to Deadline, Jason will reprise his signature role of Ben Warren. Previously, the actor played Ben since season 6 of the ABC medical drama. Later, George became a series regular for seasons 12-14 before departing to join the ‘Grey’s’ spinoff, Station 19.

With Station 19 now canceled, it paved the way for George to bring Ben back to Seattle Grey’s Sloan. Over the past seven years, Jason was a mainstay on the firefighter drama and would make appearances and crossover to “Grey’s’.  Both series are produced by Shondaland and ABC signature.

In story, the seventh season of Station 19 had Ben tapping leaning into his medical skills while questioning his future as a firefighter in light of his shoulder injury. Then, in the Station 19 series finale, Ben told Captain Herrera that he was going back to finish his surgical residency. The story all fits together because when Ben was a fifth year resident at Grey Sloan, he found a way to pursue his other dream as a firefighter without jeopardizing his chances to return to the hospital and medicine one day.

George was featured on NBC’s Sunset Beach from 1997-1999 as lifeguard Michael Bourne and his love interest, Vanessa was played by Sherri Saum (ex-Keri, One Life to Live) who is also the wife of the late Kamar de los Reyes (ex-Antonio, One Life to Live)

In a post on X, following the story of his rejoining Grey’s Anatomy, George posted a video with the music from “Welcome Back Kotter” and the words “Well … it WAS kind of hush-hush. But now it’s official. Where my scrubs at?”

So, glad to hear Jason George is returning as a series regular to Grey’s Anatomy? Comment below.

Bryan Craig Teases ‘Who Could It Be’ in Response to General Hospital’s Returning Mystery Man

Since General Hospital’s executive producer, Frank Valentini dropped a major bombshell of what’s to come on the long-running daytime drama at the 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards, the guessing games have begun of just what former GH actor is returning to the cast this summer.

Speaking with ABC’s On The Red Carpet, as previously reported, Valentini shared, “A former cast member is coming back. And I think that the audience will go crazy for HIM.”

That has led to major online speculation that it could be anyone from: Jonathan Jackson (ex-Lucky), Greg Vaughn (ex-Lucky), Ted King (ex-Lorenzo Alcazar), Nicholas Chavez (ex-Spencer), and Bryan Craig (ex-Morgan) among others, that might be the gentlemen being referenced.

On Wednesday, responding to a post on the subject from Soap Opera Digest, Bryan Craig commented, “Who could it be ….”  Now, clearly he can just be having some fun with the situation to throw fans off-track, or he might be giving us a tease of what’s to come.

Before exiting GH, the actor won two Daytime Emmys for his performances as Morgan Corinthos in 2016 and 2017.  Craig appeared on GH from 2013-2016 and made a return in 2018. Since departing GH, Bryan has appeared most recently in Freeform’s Good Trouble and ABC’s Grand Hotel, plus several independent films.

The character of Morgan was killed-off the show when Olivia Jerome set a bomb that exploded in the car that Morgan got into, but was meant to kill Olivia’s brother Julian Jerome. Morgan’s death caused a huge split in the relationship of Carly and Sonny.

So, do you think Bryan Craig is just having fun with the audience, or do you think it’s possible he is the big return Frank Valentini is talking about? Comment below.
