For all of us who have missed Erika Slezak following her enduring run on One Life to Live as Viki, over the last year, Slezak has been back in action and on our screens again appearing in primetime episodics and feature films.

Now comes word that Erika just completed filming an episode of the hit CBS drama Blue Bloods starring Tom Selleck.

According to her website, ErikaSlezak.com, the actress will appear on the upcoming Friday. May 3rd episode.

On the experience of working on Blue Bloods, Slezak released this statement: “I worked with Len Cariou, who plays retired NYC Commissioner Henry Reagan on the series and Tana Sirois, a wonderful young actress and a dream to work with. Tana plays my granddaughter (not a regular series character). It was a long but wonderful day and the entire crew, director, John Behring, and the writer, Daniel Truly, were all so terrific and easy and helpful. Just the nicest crew, made me feel so welcome and happy. It was as if I had been back with our lovely people at OLTL, the best ever.”

A touching post from Slezak, who gives a shout-out to all her former colleagues at One Life to Live.

Blue Bloods airs Friday nights at 10PMET/PT.

I’m thrilled that Erika will be guest starring on Blue Bloods! While it’s too bad the current daytime shows haven’t found a way to bring Erika into our homes on a more regular basis, it’s awesome to see her getting some roles on prime time and film!

hi Sherri..
the actors of those soaps are probably dead, failing, or simply retired..
And without the original actors, those two soaps would be meaningless/unrecognizable.
