As fans know, Daytime Emmy winner Robin Strasser (Dorian Cramer Lord) is headed back to Llanview and One Life to Live when the series returns via Prospect Park’s online reboot of the series this spring.

Strasser, who has had a rollercoaster of a ride past with ABC’s One Life (where she was written-out on June 23rd of 2011, and was not there for the ending, and who was not originally asked to join Prospect Park’s One Life reboot during the production companies first attempt at reviving the show) spoke to TV Guide Magazine where she revealed she is enthusiastic these days with Prospect Park’s plans for the series citing, “It’s a different energy now.”

Strasser also talks about: her thoughts on how she was written off the original OLTL, how her deal came about with Prospect Park, if she knows the storyline that is being written for now, and she even offered up a bit of insecurity after all the behind-the-scenes shake-ups she endured, but always noting that she is always dedicated to her performances.  Here is an excerpt!

Strasser on what she could be scared of now after all she has been through: “Getting what I asked for, what I prayed for. Mixed up in all the joy and the celebration is the fear of not living up to this. Do I deserve this? Could it be taken away? To love something so much and let it go and then have it suddenly come back is an overwhelming thing. My respect for this business is built on the premise that every episode is opening night, though I may have driven people crazy with that concept. Every episode, every scene matters deeply. At the start of each work day, I always think, “If this is the last performance I ever give, let it be a great one!” What can I say? I’m a drama queen.”

It wouldn’t be OLTL without Robin and Erika. Dorian and Viki light up that screen with their humorous “digs”. 😉

Her soap career goes back further than anyone still working, she is an institution and a darn good actress.

PP will prove that Frank was SO SO SO wrong to ever let Robin get away. Erika and Robin are the backbone of OLTL. I also agree with other post as a sign of good faith take down R.I.P. next to AMC and OLTL.

Shortly after she left OLTL, Robin had been Tweeting, holding her head up and moving forward. I knew, if the opportunity presented itself she’d bring Dorian back! Robin loves Dorian and portrays her fabulously! Some of my favorite OLTL scenes always include Dorian & Viki!! They play off each other so well. Erika & Robin are both class acts and I don’t think Robin’s a “drama queen”, but a talented actress who had lost something she loved in an unfortunate way. I’m so excited for this revival and to have so many, especially Bo & Nora, back! This is a wonderful outcome to all of us who fought to Save Our Soaps and never gave up! Thank you Prospect Park!!

I am over the moon to know Dorian and Robin will be back in Llanview for our viewing pleasure! 🙂
I never had a problem with anything she tweeted; she has every right to her feelings and opinion.

It doesn’t matter to me when you take the RIP off of AMC and OLTL, now or wait until they ‘air’.

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”
