One Life's Original Dorian, Nancy Pinkerton has passed away

In more news of sad and shocking deaths over the weekend, of greats in the soap world, Nancy Pinkerton Peabody, the original Dorian Cramer Lord of One Life to Live has passed away at 69.   Apparently the actress had died on March 4th, and her body has since been cremated.  A memorial is set for May.  This comes on the heels of  the news from earlier this past weekend, when the soap world learned that Designing Women’s Dixie Carter, former star of Edge of Night and one time replacement for Pinkerton as Dorian on OLTL ( =while Pinkerton was on maternity leave) also passed away.

Pinkerton Peabody was 69.  Doctors had describer her passing as “heart failure”  When she left acting, Nancy turned  to photography. In the late and in the 1980s, she produced an extensive exhibit titled “Love in the Time of AIDS.” It depicted and promoted volunteerism in response to the then-rampant AIDS epidemic. The exhibit was displayed on the north-facing wall of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City.

Pinkerton’s, Dorian is so remembered on One Life for her classic battles with Viki (Erika Slezak), her lust for Joe Reilly (Lee Patterson), and her fling with Mark Toland (Tommy Lee Jones).

Here is a clip of Nancy in action as the first Dorian!

I loved Nancy Pinkerton as Dorien. When I attended my first soap opera gathering in NYC I actually got to meet her. She was lovely. Just learned of her demise and am truly sorry to hear of it. May she REST IN PEACE. love her forever.

I’m happy to have OLTL back…even if not on TV! I started thinking about the “good ‘old days” from the very beginning, so I looked up some of the original cast members. I’m sorry to hear about Nancy’s passing. Her portrayal of Dorian is one of the reasons I got ‘hooked” in the first place! May her memory be eternal <3

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”
