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.

Blue Bloods is not a show I watch; however with Erika Slezak as a guest star, I most definitely will!

I love watching Erika and hope she will become a regular on the show or at the very least a recurring character perhaps a live interest for Henry.

Cindy

Erika was great she should be on all the time.She would make a great live interest for Henry. Awesome show last night

Being a fan of OLTL many years ago, I was surprised to see Erika in a role on Blue Bloods. She was fantastic in her role and it only took a few minutes to recognize her. (Haven’t been able to watch daytime soaps for 20+ years) Great chemistry with Henry, so I do hope she gets to return in more episodes!

Josh Reims Is ‘Dynasty’s’ New Showrunner

Some changes behind the scenes for CW’s Dynasty as it enters its upcoming 3rd season.

According to Deadline. Sallie Patrick, who developed the reboot of the primetime soap with Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, has stepped down as the series showrunner.

In her place will be Josh Reims, who joined Dynasty as co-executive producer at the start of season 2.

Reims, has major primetime soap cred.  He served as executive producer on ABC’s Mistresses and Dirty Sexy Money and as consulting producer on ABC’s Brothers & Sisters and the CW’s Jane the Virgin.

Patrick, will remain an EP of Dynasty, but will now focus on development for CBS Studios.  She posted a message on her Instagram about moving on, noting: “While I’m excited to move on to my next challenge, it’s of course hard to part with a world I put so much love into, from first pitch to this 44th ep, but I’m so pleased with the team carrying it forward.”

So, what do you think about Josh Reims being named the new showrunner for Dynasty season three? Comment below

THURSDAY: E! News Daytime Drama Deep Dive Visits DAYS, GH, and Y&R

Mark your calendars for a very special segment on the soaps, when E! News delivers their Daytime Drama deep dive on Thursday, May 23 hosted by Giuliana Rancic and Jason Kennedy at 7pm-8pm ET/PT on cable’s E!

Look for set visits, interviews, retro clips, and more with some of the most famous and enduring characters in the genre.  Here’s just a sample of what to watch for:

When E! News visit the set of Y&R, Eric Braeden recounts the time Victor was feeding his wife Julia’s lover trapped in the basement dead rat; while Tracey Bregman (Lauren) reflects on why the viewers love the relationships and families in Genoa City.

In Salem and Days of our Lives, E! chats with series staples: Kristian Alfonso (Hope), then Deidre Hall (Marlena) and Drake Hogestyn (John).  Deidre reveals “possession will be on my tombstone” in terms of Marlena’s most infamous story of all-time when the good doc was possessed by Satan, while the beloved duo discuss why daytime is the best job to have.  Alfonso talks on the history of her character sharing: “I am going to hold near and dear to my heart the beginnings of Hope. And the adventure and the romance of Bo and Hope”.

Courtesy/E!

From the set of General Hospital new interviews are featured with: Laura Wright (Carly), Steve Burton (Jason) and Kristina Wagner (Felicia), plus Casting Director Mark Teschner remembers Meghan Markle’s acting debut on the ABC daytime drama series.

Teschner remembers: “Meghan Markle actually had her first speaking role in television on General Hospital.  She worked on the show in the background as a nurse, and we brought her up to read her to see if there was something there.”

Steve Burton chats on the craziest story he has ever played as Jason Morgan, revealing, “The one that always pops into my head is we had to go catch a monkey that had a virus, and I said to Laura (Wright) I think this is probably the end of my career today.”

The E! News special segment will show nostalgic clips from all the daytime dramas, including Luke and Laura’s wedding on GH, Marlena’s possession from DAYS, and some of Victor’s nefarious schemes from Y&R.

Check out the promo below.  Then, let us know if you will be checking out the ‘deep dive’ this Thursday via the comment section below.
