Last night on her Twitter account, Daytime Emmy winner, Robin Strasser ( Dorian of One Life to Live) addressed some of her followers questions.  She responded with a tweet regarding if she had been asked by Prospect Park to join the show as Dorian once One Life moves to its new home online in January, or has many had been angling for and hoped, if she had been asked back for some of the final episodes of One Life to Live that will air in January on ABC.

Strasser tweeted to that, “NO, haven’t been asked to participate in prospective Prospect Park OLTL. NOR in OLTL’s last final months. Diss-appointing? yes-Surprising-no.”

So what do you soapers think of that? Do you think that is the final word on this? Or, do you think the powers-that-be, once they get some more ducks in the row, might have the forethought to bring back beloved Strasser as Dorian? Let us know!

I am hard pressed to even imagine a Llanview without Dorian Lord. ONE LIFE TO LIVE is a wonderful daytime drama and the color and character Robin Strasser brings to the show is too valuable to squander. Even before Strasser assumed the role, I enjoyed Dorian nee Cramer’s longing to be accepted into society. Those early stories of the murder of Mark Toland and Dorian’s eventual marriage of Dorian to Victor Lord remain key to the genesis of what has become — all thanks to Robin Strasser — an incredible legacy character that is of her creation. I hope those… Read more »

I think that just how we all hoped that OLTL would be saved for cancellation… and it was, the same will be true for Robin’s rerturn. We just have to demand it, and I’m sure it will happen.,

I think that PP is probably working as fast as they can to retain those actors who will be on screen on ABC in January for continuity of stories. Once those actors have been signed I can see them trying to get the important players who were released early, like David and Dorian to return.

Robin ran away from this show without blinking to think about her fans or long time fans who have loved her all these years. You go get my blessing by leaving me in the dust. MOVE ON WITH OUT HER OLTL

Dorian as played by Robin Strasser is OLTL for me as a fan. It’s not OLTL without her.

It’s one thing to be upset, it’s another thing to be bitter. Ever since the cancellation she has been overly rude and mean. It’s show business, you know what you’re getting into. Shows get canceled, actors/actresses get fired. Does it suck? Yes. Should you just suck it up? Yes? With all the negative things she’s been saying, it’s no surprise she’s not asked back. A classy person would have shown their sadness and even anger, but not to this extent, to even go so far as to now make fun of the replacement, “Chewy-Phooey” I believe she called it.

I think she is showing the disrespect that she and others have received. When is it wrong to react to what one think is wrong, Some people have no problem cheering Roger coming back , and look how TSJ was disrespected by showing him that his 8 yrs. on the show as Todd didn’t mean anything. So if you want to talk about disrespect talk to TSJ.

The show is not the same with out Dorian and David. I love both of them together, and the lines for David are so funny. They make a perfect match on the show. I can understand the surgery, and the time to heal, but when it gets down to the nitty, gritty, we need Dorian, David, and Dorian and Viki being friendnemies. The show won’t be the same. Dorian and Viki need each other. Prospect Park, don’t wait too long. We have fought too long and hard to save these shows. We thank you for taking over our beloved shows,… Read more »

The talented ensemble of “One Life To Live” has tremendous soul and one of the hearts of Llanview’s soul, lies in the person of Dorian Cramer Lord, former Mayor of Llanview, and currently I might add, a distinguished United States Senator. This grande dame is no small treasure because she is the leader of a remarkable group of women; Cramer women. A Cramer woman is proud and self-respecting and full of love for her family, her clan. She is as protective of them as any lioness should rightly be. The great actress Robin Strasser is no weeping willow by any… Read more »

Here, here, to an elegant summation on a Class A actress with Grade A intentions both on air and off. The mediocrity of mega corporate thought that goes on at ABC/Disney can never appreciate a woman of character and action that is Robin Strasser. They are too busy towing the line of corp. crap that will bring about the demise and profit of the very industry they pilfered in order to seek financial gain while ignoring art and quality. It appears they never respected the business they were in. It appears they never valued their employees. It appears they never… Read more »

I am very much disappointed in the way Dorian’s part has been handled, very much so! But in all honesty Robin I do believe things have not been laid out yet in ink. Keep the faith and I am sure everything will fall into place for all the actors. My favorite word — “Faith” We all love you! Love Debbie

One Life To Live needs Robin back on the show. I think once the dust settles with Prospect Park that she will be asked to come back. Robin is too important to the show and her many fans!

Please PP and OLTL bring Dorian/Robin back – she is as much a fixture on the show as Victoria/Erika.

Now that Erika Slezak signed on with PP, don’t be surprised if they ask for her input. I think Erika will do whatever she can to bring back her friend Dorian. Slezak and Strasser are classy women whose work shines when both are on the screen together. PP lets get the ball rolling. You got one part of the dynamic duo. Now lets get Strasser. You won’t regret it.

I love Robin Strasser as Dorian and would love to see her come back to OLTL, but she quit saying she have back problems and can no longer work, so can PP ask her to come back if she have that kind of problem with her back and can’t work.

Dorian needs to return but the charcter has to stay true to her origin. That stupid mayoral race storyline was so bad and Dorian being afraid to deal with Mitch?
Was so bad, I miss her during the buchanan takeover storyline that was cut short….

I think with Prospect Park maybe she has a chance and I hope they bring Micheal Malone on as a creative consultant.

OLTL will never be the same without (Robin Strasser as) Dorian. I appreciate the honesty and openness regarding this matter. I hope Robin takes the time necessary to heal and recover completely but, I hope she is respected by ABC to equal the love that her fans have for her and is invited to say goodbye. ABC is making a stupid mistake. I, for one, will not now – not ever, watch “The Chew.” I can see that kind of show ANYWHERE and ANYTIME! But, One Life to Live and All My Children are gems and jewels and they have… Read more »

If Robin’s back won’t allow her to act on OLTL then she has my best thoughts and prayers. Robin, if you can still act…hell even in a wheel chair ( look at the wonderful job your “ex-lover” did on the show even though he had such a serious illness)..and if OLTL does NOT ask you back….well then i just can’t imagine paying on line to watch. Yes, Vicki is wonderful, but without Dorian, she is like Ying without Yang! Yes I’ll stay tuned for a few months without you for a few months when you need a break, but an… Read more »

On December 3rd, the latest installment dropped featuring former Ugly Betty star Michael Urie who is featured in the cast in the role of Bobby.

 

Here is the premise of the show: After the ‘Broadway Disher’ (Lesli Margherita) leaks news of a top secret, in-the-works, new mega musical, the Broadway community goes off-the-charts batty. Top-of-their-game Broadway Producers Cheryl Philips (Lillias White) and Steve Jones (James Monroe Iglehart), arch enemies, pounce. Who will get the rights? Will way-out-of-their-comfort-zone creators Kaye (Ashley Park) and Bobby (Michael Urie) manage to deliver a draft of the show before their marriage implodes? Will Director/Choreographer Zoey Taylor (Ariana DeBose) send the show’s budget into a free fall with her wildly ambitious vision?  Will Broadway Diva Emma-Olivia (Sarah Stiles) get a Schmackery’s cookie (with Sprinkles) named in her honor? Will newbie Agent Maxwell Fernsby (George Salazar) step into his new big shoes? And will Science Consultant Andrew Barth Feldman (Andrew Barth Feldman) protect the integrity and authenticity of the in-the-works mega musical, before he needs to leave this top secret show to star in a new Broadway musical?

As The Curtain Rises proudly supports The Actor’s Fund, the Broadway Podcast Network Frontline Initiative, and is a sponsored project of IFP (www.ifp.org).

Check out previous episodes of the podcast here.

You can watch Urie do his thing in the role of Bobby in this teaser released on social media below.

GL & ATWT Alum Tom Pelphrey On His Role in ‘Mank’: “I Got To Say Rosebud On-Screen with Gary Oldman, in a David Fincher Film. Pretty Cool.”

What we all knew first, everyone in Hollywood and all of America is becoming to realize;  that Tom Pelphrey (Ex-Jonathan, Guiding Light, Mick, As the World Turns) is just a naturally-gifted actor able to tap into such deep emotional depths in every part he plays that make him a stand-out in every project he is in.

Now, this two-time Daytime Emmy winner, who is coming off a critically-acclaimed run in season 3 of Nerflix’s Ozark, can be seen in one of the talked about potential Oscar contenders, the film, Mank.

In the David Fincher film, Pelphrey plays Joseph Mankiewicz the brother to Gary Oldman’s Herman “Mank” Mankiewicz, and in a new interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Tom realizes the enormity of one of the key and most famous words in cinema history that he gets to say during Joseph’s reaction to Mank’s script for Citizen Kane … “rosebud”.

Pelphrey shared on the revelation that his line in the film is part of a huge historic fabric of cinema history: ““Oh my god. I didn’t even think about that. Wow. When you work on something like this, you really try to do your job to the best of your ability, and you really just focus on the task at hand.”

He added, Y”ou don’t really stop and consider the whole big thing- at least I didn’t. But you don’t want to get too swept up in that or get intimidated. You want to just come in, focus on your work and put your head down. And yeah, now is the time to sit back and say, ‘I got to say Rosebud on-screen with Gary Oldman, in a David Fincher film.’ Pretty cool.

Mank, is now available in select theatres and streams beginning on December 4th on Netflic.

So, excited to see Tom in Mank? Comment below.  But first, check out this trailer from the film,
