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!

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….

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!

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!!!

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.

‘As The Curtain Rises’ – Broadway’s Podcast Soap Opera Featuring Michael Urie

On December 3rd, the latest installment dropped featuring former Ugly Betty star Michael Urie who is featured in the cast in the role of Bobby.

 

Here is the premise of the show: After the ‘Broadway Disher’ (Lesli Margherita) leaks news of a top secret, in-the-works, new mega musical, the Broadway community goes off-the-charts batty. Top-of-their-game Broadway Producers Cheryl Philips (Lillias White) and Steve Jones (James Monroe Iglehart), arch enemies, pounce. Who will get the rights? Will way-out-of-their-comfort-zone creators Kaye (Ashley Park) and Bobby (Michael Urie) manage to deliver a draft of the show before their marriage implodes? Will Director/Choreographer Zoey Taylor (Ariana DeBose) send the show’s budget into a free fall with her wildly ambitious vision?  Will Broadway Diva Emma-Olivia (Sarah Stiles) get a Schmackery’s cookie (with Sprinkles) named in her honor? Will newbie Agent Maxwell Fernsby (George Salazar) step into his new big shoes? And will Science Consultant Andrew Barth Feldman (Andrew Barth Feldman) protect the integrity and authenticity of the in-the-works mega musical, before he needs to leave this top secret show to star in a new Broadway musical?

As The Curtain Rises proudly supports The Actor’s Fund, the Broadway Podcast Network Frontline Initiative, and is a sponsored project of IFP (www.ifp.org).

Check out previous episodes of the podcast here.

You can watch Urie do his thing in the role of Bobby in this teaser released on social media below.

GL & ATWT Alum Tom Pelphrey On His Role in ‘Mank’: “I Got To Say Rosebud On-Screen with Gary Oldman, in a David Fincher Film. Pretty Cool.”

What we all knew first, everyone in Hollywood and all of America is becoming to realize;  that Tom Pelphrey (Ex-Jonathan, Guiding Light, Mick, As the World Turns) is just a naturally-gifted actor able to tap into such deep emotional depths in every part he plays that make him a stand-out in every project he is in.

Now, this two-time Daytime Emmy winner, who is coming off a critically-acclaimed run in season 3 of Nerflix’s Ozark, can be seen in one of the talked about potential Oscar contenders, the film, Mank.

In the David Fincher film, Pelphrey plays Joseph Mankiewicz the brother to Gary Oldman’s Herman “Mank” Mankiewicz, and in a new interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Tom realizes the enormity of one of the key and most famous words in cinema history that he gets to say during Joseph’s reaction to Mank’s script for Citizen Kane … “rosebud”.

Pelphrey shared on the revelation that his line in the film is part of a huge historic fabric of cinema history: ““Oh my god. I didn’t even think about that. Wow. When you work on something like this, you really try to do your job to the best of your ability, and you really just focus on the task at hand.”

He added, Y”ou don’t really stop and consider the whole big thing- at least I didn’t. But you don’t want to get too swept up in that or get intimidated. You want to just come in, focus on your work and put your head down. And yeah, now is the time to sit back and say, ‘I got to say Rosebud on-screen with Gary Oldman, in a David Fincher film.’ Pretty cool.

Mank, is now available in select theatres and streams beginning on December 4th on Netflic.

So, excited to see Tom in Mank? Comment below.  But first, check out this trailer from the film,
