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.

The Young and the Restless Pushes Back Production Restart Date Due To COVID-19 Spike

As the coronavirus pandemic is spiking again in LA County and California, CBS’ Daytime-Emmy winning The Young and the Restless has now postponed their previously announced goal of a production restart of July 6th to now eyeing July 13th as their new start date.  Deadline first broke the news.

But all of this could change, given that California Governor Gavin Newsom and LA County health officials have come forward that the spike of COVID-19 cases, test positivity and hospitalization rates in California have given the Governor serious concerns, so much so that now he is tightening restrictions again for the state to include: once again shutting down indoor dining, closing all bars, indoor movie theatres, as well as all beaches being closed for the 4th of July holiday.

Just last Friday, Y&R picked up the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series at the 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards. 

General Hospital is still eyeing a mid-July production restart, The Bold and the Beautiful had gone back into production and Days of our Lives still has episodes banked into the fall, and at this time have not yet announced plans to restart production.

So, do you think Y&R can safely go back into production in a few weeks given the COVID-19 uptick in new cases? Comment below,

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?

These were strong numbers for Friday night, and hopefully CBS and the other major networks will now continue this, and serve up the Daytime Emmy Awards moving forward.
