SUDS: Barbara Garrick to One Life and Lucky Spencer promos!

BarbaraGarrick.jpgIn Friday’s TV Guide Canada Suds Report, Nelson Branco had a few very interesting items.  One, reporting that whacko Alison Perkins played by Barbara Garrick is set for a return  at OLTL just as Roscoe Born (Mitch) is set to make his first on air re-emergence.  Check it out below!

“Set insiders are reporting that One Life has hired back Barbara Garrick to reprise her Emmy-worthy role of wack job Alison Perkins. The low-rated sudser will finally address who Roxy’s baby daddy is. As Suds exclusively reported, Roscoe Born is also returning to the show as Mitch to round out the storyline. So who is Rex’s papa? I’d bet my money it’s Alison. Yep, you read that correctly. I doubt the infamous Ron Carlivati would go the predictable route and reveal that Mitch is Rex’s DNA match. But who knows? I’ve been wrong before.”

Second item, in a spot on soap promo blunder! It looks like ABC Daytime’s promotion team is doing the same to the departed Greg Vaughan (Ex-Lucky, GH) to pave the way for Jonathan Jackson’s on-air return next week. How you ask?  By heradling his return as if Lucky had never been on the show for the last seven years…similar to when Rebecca Budig returned as the “Real Greenlee” and Sabine Singh was shuffled off to Buffalo.  Here is what Branco had to say about it:

vaughan_white.jpg“Is Greg Vaughan the new Sabine Singh? Looks like it. In promos trumpeting Emmy winner Jonathan Jackson’s return to the violent sudser, ABC’s tagline is, “Elizabeth’s first love is back!” Um, when did Lucky leave Port Chuck, GH? Let me make the intros — ABC meet Greg Vaughan, Greg Vaughan meet your former douchebag bosses. I’d be mighty careful with how you guys deal with Vaughan — the talented and handsome actor’s fans are not to be messed with. If I were Brian Frons, other than shaving off my mustache and firing Chucky Pratt, of course, I’d cast Vaughan on another ABC soap STAT.”
