Robin Strasser and Robert Woods Added as Guests on "The View's Salute to OLTL"!

Courtesy/ABC

Thank Goodness, The View had the forethought to include (and not forget, because that would have have been a HUGE mistake) the incomporable Robin Strasser (Dorian) to their tribute show on One Life to Live!

It will be great to see Robin and Erika Slezak (Viki), who is slated as the episode’s special co-host, reunited on The View Salutes One Life to Live airing January 13th just a few hours before the final episode of OLTL airs across the county!

In addition, another stellar One Life star, Robert S. Woods (Bo Buchanan) has also been added to the line-up!  We had also heard via Twitter from Hillary B. Smith (Nora Buchanan) last week that she would also be appearing on the episode.  So, get out your hankies for this one folks!  And, we will keep you posted over the next few weeks as the line-up for the show continues to evolve!

Hats off to The View for getting “it” right… too bad ABC can’t do the same and renew One Life To Live!

She is kind of like fireworks isn’t she? Love it! Wish Tuc Watkins would be on the show with her.

Very good! It would be great to see the actors who play Tina, Cord, Alex, Gabrielle, Max, Todd, Blair, Victor, Tea, Starr, Matthew, Rex, Gigi, Clint, Troy, Lindsey and Nigel all on there also.
I seriously hope that Dorian taped for the last episode somehow. I wish it was a surprise that none of us would know about and would be surprised about. I can dream.

It means a lot to me as a Dorian Lord and Robin Strasser fan to see her on the last day OLTL airs since she will not be in the finale. Awesome news!

I so enjoyed The View’s tribute to AMC, and I look forward to their tribute episode to One Life To Live. I am sure it will be spectacular, as I enjoy everyone on that show. I am happy that TBTB at The View had the insight to invite Robin Strasser, as when you say One Life To Live, Robin and Erika are the first two that come to mind. I am happy that Bo and Nora will also be on. I hope Michael Easton and others are on the show as well. I honestly still cannot wrap my head around… Read more »

It’s disturbing having to say goodbye because the stories are really getting good these days. Unlike Guiding Light and All My Children who were nothing more than shadows of their former selves during their final years, One Life to Live is still the same great soap that we have come to enjoy over the past 25 years.

I could not agree more. I had pretty much quit watching GL, ATWT & AMC by the time they went off the air but I was very upset to lose them because you can always go back to them when they “cycle through” & get good again. Just to know they are still there & I still kept up with them even if I wasn’t watching daily. But I have never lost a show that was FANTASTIC every single day, a show that I never, ever miss & sometimes even watch again at night on Soapnet. Losing OLTL will be… Read more »

I enjoy watching ‘The View’. So glad to read of the salute by them to OLTL cast and farewell show. Marking it on my calender as a MUST WATCH! (((*_*))) ~ It is so sad that ABC’s Soap Operas are now ‘a thing of the past’. I sooo agree {with other fans} that see the solution is for OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) to research the dollars, sponsorship, and cost of making her OWN ‘high definition’ will blow-up her network ratings and our favorite soap can remain on television. Hail Hail to cable!!!!!

General Hospital

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
