I agree. I am a long time fan of ATWT watched it for years. Just last month, I started watch OLTL. I am excited to see her come aboard. She will be a great actress whatever role she plays.

Why not use the actor’s they already have?? Her Oltl character sounds like Katie from World Turns! In that case I hope the character is short lived. Hey one life we want Soap hunks over here. Women watch this soap!! More men please! Hehe

Just started watching OLTL because of Kim Zimmer, while I liked Katie on ATWT, Im still on Katie overload and this sounds like a Katie re-tread.

I think Audrey romantic interest will be Joey! Won’t surprise me if this is why Austin was overlooked for the role of Joey which went to another ATWT actor???. Austin is super talented and drop dead Gorgeous. He can even act, youtube any scene with Maura West. Terri should have let him audition for this soap on his own! And gave Austin Peck a chance. Why does she constantly push her self in to everything this poor man does. Even w/ spot shot there was Terri. Austin should distance himself from her professionaly it is really hurting his own career opitunity.

Because they’re actors they have to take oppurtunities as they come along.It really is such a tough business to survive in.I wish her well, but I wish my other ATWT actors would all get good jobs, especially Van Hansis and Eric Sheffer Stevens.!

An actor has to take a part when offered.This is a hard business to survive in.i wish her well and wish other ATWT actors would get good jobs, especially Van Hansis and Eric Sheffer Stevens!

This will come at a cost. There are too many actresses on the show as it is. Blair, Viki, Kelly, Dorian, Jessica, Natalie, Starr, and Marty all need stories. Now we added Echo, Inez and an Aubry. I fear for Susan Haskell who is my favorite. Please please don’t let be at the character of Marty’s expense. Without Cole I don’t know what they plan to do with her unless they bring back Thorsten as Patrick. I watched AtWT and she is very likable. I didn’t think she was at the level of a Maura West or Lesley Kay, but she is cute and bubbly. I hope Aubry has more of an edge to her than Katie did.

Columbino is no Lesli Kay. LK is fantastic and can do so much w/ so little. Columbino only benefited from the actor who portrayed Henry in her earlier years on ATWT. Any soap would be lucky to have LK.

Todd, Teri is very likeable, but do we really need another remake of Katie Snyder at Landview. Nope!!! Unless she is dark and edgy I’ll pass on the sweet, bubbly, heroin, free spirited blah blah can do know wrong nonsense. Maura West is a fantastic actress. But so is Teri Colombino when given the chance. Maybe Austin will land on the Young & Restless. I miss him on Daytime.

I try to trust Ron and Frank. We will see. I am loving Kim Zimmer on the show now, and feel like I am the only one enjoying the character of Ines. Anything that might bring more viewers to OLTL at 2pm instead of the View 2 is good news to me.

My views on Terri is this. I think given all that has happened in the last year between Ap/TC…. She robbed him of a chance in a great soap. But I’m beyond trilled Austin Peck has just filmed a tv pilot. Hope it is really successful for him, an then he dumps Conn. I don’t buy them as couple, no girlfriend in her right mind would be that low handed, Terri- you had affair, Austin got his walking papers, an now you audition for Aubery rumoured love interest of Joey. And who going to Oltl Terri and another actor from….. ATWT !!

mmc, please gimme a break!! Terri only auditioned for this because of ap, bottom line is if terri an austin are auditioning in same rumoured love interest sl down the line of cause they going to choose her (lady) over him (the man) fyi he did not quite ATWT he was fired terri was involved end of story !! Is it a coincident that both characters have the same last name!!! and you also run Terri ‘s fansite. So defend her who cares…

I don’t know anything about Terris’ fansite,she wasn’t even one of my favorites on ATWT.I guess I’m behind the times, because i didn’t know that info about her and Austin.I was just giving my opinion.I’m only interested in what happens to Eric S. Stevens and Van hansis, FYI !

I really can’t understand why OLTL has not snatched up Van and Eric to continue the LuRe lovestory! It was just beginning and the fans are NOT ready to let it “die.” Passanante is writing for OLTL and has stated that she would have loved to continue to write for these two, that they knew they had struck gold with this pairing, so tell me, WHY are they not already over there??? Could we finally get the dream scene we ALL asked for and discover Reid is alive and well and moving to Llanview???

mmc

I am such a fan of the Luke / Reid storyline and such a fan of Eric and my sweet Van.But as much as i would like to see the continuation of Luke and Reid i don’t know how good that would be for their careers.Look at what was done on ATWT.They never were treated as the straight couples were and i wouldn’t trust TPTB to allow them to have to have a real and fulfilling romance.And when their romance got hotter and hotter I’m afraid they’d do away with them.These are two great actors and i must admit that I miss them so much and want the very best for them and their careers! i do admit that I’m on you tube constantly watching ATWT and mostly any scenes with Luke and Reid.What chemistry, what acting and what gorgeous men!!!

Emmy Winner and Noted Soap Opera Head Writer; Hogan Sheffer Passes Away At 61

Over the last several hours, reports have broke that one of daytime’s most notable scribes has died.  Hogan Sheffer, who was head writer at As the World Turns, Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless has passed away at the age of 61.

Soap Hub, first reported the news via multiple sources, however, many writers who worked with Hogan during his tenure on the soaps have taken to social media to share their condolences and their grief and remembrances.

Sheffer’s appearance on the soap scene was unexpected, especially in a genre where it is often rare for new blood to take the reins at the head writer position.  Proctor & Gamble had decided to bring in Hogan after his work as the Director of Screenplay Development for DreamWorks, not because of his writing credits for a previous network soap.  He was given trial deal as a breakdown writer for the CBS soap and 10-weeks in became the beloved town of Oakdale’s new head writer.

Hogan and his then writing team were able to turn the classic, As the World Turns around.  The show went up in the ratings and during his time with the series ‘World Turn’s’ won two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, and he and the writing team picked up four Emmy victories all through 2000-2004.

Next, Sheffer landed in Salem as head writer of Days of our Lives along with Meg Kelly from 2006 through to the beginning of 2008.   He would later join The Young and the Restless and team up with then head writers: Maria Arena Bell and Scott Hamner, and eventually stay with the show till 2012.  During Sheffer’s time in Genoa City, Y&R also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in 2011.

On Sunday, former WWE and daytime writer Tom Casiello, who was extremely close with Sheffer…  and who shared how Hogan gave him his start at writing in daytime, took to his Facebook page to pay tribute to a man who had such an impact on his life and many others.  It is worth the read here. 

Y&R writer, Sara Bibel tweeted: “Hogan Sheffer was a gamechanger for ATWT and daytime. Everyone I know who worked with him adored him. RIP”

And, iconic ATWT star, Martha Byrne (Ex-Lily) tweeted on Sheffer’s passing: “To say he was one of a kind would be a tremendous understatement. Our years at ATWT with Hogan at the helm were a rebirth for our beautiful show. Loved his writers, actors,crew. Blessed to have him on the first floor in Brooklyn ready to listen. Talented. Funny. Generous. RIP”

Colleen Zenk (Ex-Barbara, ATWT) also took to Twitter upon learning of the passing of Sheffer sharing: “I loved him, loved him, loved him… he was so good to me. Thank you for everything, Hogan. You were so loved. Especially, by me… Rest in peace…”

Michael Fairman TV will continue to bring you updates as the soap world mourns the loss of a creative force in our genre.  Share your condolences and thoughts on the death of Hogan Sheffer via the comment section below.
