I enjoyed the podcast especially the talk about New Orleans. I just moved down there in February and I love it. It would be great if Carolyn and any of of the other soap actors decided to have a fan or benefit event down here. I would definitely come!

What a fun packed podcast, Michael. It was loaded with great features and great guests. Loved Christian as a guest host. It was very interesting to hear about his early days on TV soaps. It wa also meaninful when he talke about his father and late brother. I’m a big fan of Christian and respect his talent so much. Terry Columbino was fun to have on, especially her views on the ending of ATWT. The last few episodes she has been on with the transplant and all, she has given a solid performance. So, kudos to her.

Fun podcast. C-hosts were funny! Carolyn wants her character hooked up with Brenda- LOL!
Great to hear from Melissa Reeves. I remember her farewell scene with Frances Reid in 2006- very touching. I thought the same thing, they will never do a scene together again on Days.
Hoping they don’t kill Jack off and put Jennifer in a triangle.

ATWT and OLTL Alum Mary Linda Rapelye Passes Away at 76

She got her soap start as Faith Kipling, the wife of the evil Dr. Ivan Kipling on One Life to Live (1979-1980) and later came to Oakdale and As the World Turns as lawyer, Maggie Crawford (1980-1985), and now comes sad news that actress Mary Linda Rapelye has died from a battle with cancer.

Mary Linda actually passed away last month on April 5th, and according to The Booth Bay Register she was surrounded by her her brother Gardiner Rapelye Jr. and dear friends Julianna and Will Anderson by her side.  She was 76 years old at the time of her death.

Mary Linda started a long career of acting when she was only 5.  After her part in an outdoor production at The Starlight Theater in her home town, Kansas City, Missouri, she climbed off the stage and sat in her father’s lap. This was to be the beginning of her work spanning nearly eight decades on stage, screen and television. She is best known for her roles in Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood, and of course, OLTL and ATWT.  She also made a memorable appearance in the role of Irina Galliulin in the Star Trek: The Original Series third season episode “The Way to Eden”.

A Memorial and Celebration of Life is being planned this July for MaryLinda in Booth Bay.

Below is a tribute video featuring clips and moments from Rapelye’s career.
