Robin Strasser heading west! No Prospect Park OLTL in her future!

Daytime Emmy winner, Robin Strasser (Dorian) took to twitter last night and revealed that she is headed to Los Angeles to work on her next career moves, and will not be joining One Life to Live when it moves to Prospect Park.

Robin tweeted: “It’s DEF! moving to LA soon. NO “prospect” in NY, so I’m heading West:) where I have a real pretty house. NO pity pot- it’s pool party time!”

So perhaps a savvy Los Angeles based soap, might just snatch up the terrific talents of La Strasser?

Whatever the case, On-Air On-Soaps wishes the best for Robin on her new adventures ahead, and is sad to hear that she will not be continuing on as Dorian with One Life’s new home on the web next year.  What do you think about Robin’s tweet? Let us know.

This is a MAJOR disappointment, but one can only wish Ms. Strasser best of luck and an active career in Hollywood. I anticipate Prospect Park’s AMC and OLTL 2.0 versions to be different from what was came to love for decades on ABC. Still, it is sad to know key legacy actors such as Robin Strasser will not be a part of the launch, even for a short time. Of course, situations dictate change and Ms. Strasser could return, or there could be a new actress as Dorian. But the latter is not what I want to see!

Good for her. Robin will get lots of tv work there. I hope pops in for holidays as Senator Dorian Lord.

I would love to see Robin reprise the role of Dorian on GH. She could become the chief of staff at the hospital and bring Dorian back to her doctor roots.

OLTL is a MAJOR disappointment. But I have felt that way for awhile and will not be tuning in for OLTL–PP. Not inviting Strasser to join speaks volumes for what they think of the show’s fans. I hope that Strasser lands on a soap or some other project in the near future. Most of all I’d like the opportunity to see her perform again. I am also very glad that she seems to be feeling better healthwise.

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! I am missing Robin Strasser as Dorian. Please PP! She is a key character to history of OLTL. There is so many storylines the writers could do with Dorian. Please rethink this PP. OLTL is not the same without her.

Sorry to hear this news. Hopefully, PP can come up with some kind of an arrangement in the future, to woo Robin back to OLTL….. But one question that I have for TPTB over at OLTL…. When on God’s green earth are we the fans going to get a conclusion on this John/Natalie story?!?! This is getting beyond ridiculous. Enough is Enough, Ron!!! Wrap this story up, and let John know he has a son. Poor Liam will be graduating High School, before he knows the identity of his parents. Dragging stories on like this is not a good way… Read more »

All the best to one of the finest actors to grace television. OLTL’s loss will definitely be someone else’s gain. They just don’t make them like the divine Ms. Strasser anymore. What a shame that Frank Valentini and his headwriter do not value this actress and the character she played with such delight. The fans certainly value her. Her exit was written lazy and uninspired. The failure to not only try to recapture this fantastic actor for the online version, but failing to being her back and give closure to Dorian fans on the television finale is just insulting. She… Read more »

I’m not sure why you think it’s Valentini and Carlivati who don’t value her. Robin has had a prickly relationship with ABC higher-ups for a long time (for example, over her hotline), and she’s certainly not the sort of actress that Frons would have any real value for (i.e., she’s not blond, twenty-something, and bubble-headed). I doubt Carlivati and Valentini have had much say in any of the departures over the last six months, and I equally doubt they have been given much say in Prospect Park’s decisions about whom to hire/not hire. It sounds to me like ABC TPTB… Read more »

I think when all is said and done we are going to see a new version of OLTL. I also think the guys at Prospect Park are taking their time and negotiating with most of the current cast or at least those who may be willing to stay. Id hate to see many of the current cast go but all you need to get re-started are some core cast members and it seems that they have that. As far as the Ford brothers, well they certainly arent hard on the eyes but they could REALLY use some acting lessons!! Im… Read more »

Michael, if PP chooses not to hire Strasser, Smith, Woods, Kristen, and other older actors, it’s hard to imagine they know what they are doing or that they understand the appeal of generational interactions among OLTL family characters.

Sucks that all the people aren’t coming back like Dorian, and now i’m hearing JP might head to GH and FF might return to Days as Mimi. Though I don’t see how Mimi can since her friends Belle and Chloe are not on there. Unless they make her the daughter of an important character on there.

And, while you’re at it if you are so inclined, please – ditto that for the great ILENE KRISTEN as “Foxy Roxy” Balsom! Both of these great ladies publicly defended the OLTL cast and crew in their darkest months ever, following the nasty Disney/ABC cancellation announcement, and they… Read more »

I still hope that she at least might recur on the show. Frank Valentini and Ron Carvalati are not dumb, they know what the fans want,and we want Robin back as Dorian.

Erika Slezak is very good but she is even better when playing off the strength and intensity of Robin Strasser. Robin brings so much to her character and Dorian is integral to OLTL. If Strasser cannot return to OLTL on ABC, I pray PP will come to their senses and reconsider what is best for OLTL and what the fans want.

After speculation a few years back that at some point, Milo Ventimiglia would find his way onto the hit comedy, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, that would reunite him with his former Gilmore Girls boss, Amy Sherman-Palladino, now appears to be coming true!

News out of TV Line reports that Milo will guest star in season four of the series.  However, details of who he will play are being kept under wraps.

Ventimiglia will be the second cast member from This Is Us to appear on Maisel, following Sterling K. Brown who appeared in season 3.

The fourth season of the Amazon Prime series has been in production since January – after plenty of stops and starts due to Covid-19 and restrictions.

Gilmore Girl fans remember Ventimiglia as Jess Mariano, the troubled love interest of Rory Gilmore.

Ventimiglia will also wrap his time as Jack on This Is Us, when the show finishes its upcoming sixth and final season of the NBC drama.

So, what role do you think Milo might play on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
