As the World Turns favorite Terri Colombino (Ex-Katie) spoke with TV Guide for a preview of her new role of Aubrey Wentworth, the secret sweetheart of Joey Buchanan (Tom Degnan) on One Life to Live who will first be seen on November 29.  She also discusses the fan backlash to the ending of the Reid Oliver/Chris Hughes storyline that ended in tragedy in Oakdale.  Here are a few excerpts!

Colombino on if she hopes she will be vying for the attention of Joey with his ex-flame Kelly (Gina Togoni): “Oooh, I hope so! I love triangles, and I love Gina! I did my very first scenes with her. Kelly and Aubrey meet on the plane and start chatting it up, girlfriend-style. Kelly says there’s this guy in her life she’s finally realized is her true love and she’s going to tell him. And Aubrey talks about her man and how she’s going to Llanview to see him. Neither ever mentions the name Joey — but of course they’re both talking about the same guy!”

Colombino on ATWT sacrificing the gay character of Reid in order for the straight character of Chris to live and love and have a heart: “I had no idea about the controversy until after the show was off the air. I didn’t know people were upset but I can certainly understand it. They loved Reid and latched right onto him, and Eric is an amazing actor. I think they’re making it a sexual orientation issue — why does the gay guy have to be the only one who is not happy at the end? — but I don’t believe it was that at all. Chris’s heart condition and Reid’s death provided a huge and important story for the whole Hughes family. Look at the work Kathryn Hays [Kim] did — she’s going to win an Emmy! It’s understandable that people want everything tied up with a nice little bow. Everybody wants everybody happy, and Luke and Reid had developed such a great relationship. They were just starting out in life. I understand the disappointment, but I was surprised at the depth of it.”

Here we go again. Another former STRAIGHT actor/actress from ATWT basically poo-poo’d the show’s LGBT fans. Terri, you’ve just lost my respect. Don’t count on me catching you on OLTL, another show that basically crashed and burned a very promising gay storyline for the sake of their “straight” viewers.

If you end up without a job at OLTL, I hope to God you don’t end up on either B&B or Y&R. I’d FF through your scenes so fast, it’d make that blonde hair of yours end up somewhere else.

I always thought it was the writers that wirte the storylines, not the actors. Is it fair to blame an actor or actress for the scripts they are given? I wish OLTL would bring back Oliver Fish, but won’t quit watch the show just because his character is off the canvus.

It’s not the Gay/Straight issue-=-Chris is a HUGHES, and of course, they couldn’t kill off the last of the Hughes clan at the end of the show! No soapbox needed here to figure out why they had to do this……

Well tahonia, they could have done away with Gabriel, Craig’s son. He was only on the show what, 4 months before it went off the air? That was an easily expendable character and knowing Craig’s penchant for screwing up his kids’ lives, this is one character that ATWT could have done away with. But to snuff out Reid and leave Luke grieving with no happy ending was absolutely uncalled for. No matter how much Craig has changed (which wasn’t much), this is one character that could have suffered yet another loss and he would have deserved it.

And don’t give the bullcrap line of and I quote you, “It’s not the Gay/Straight issue”. It most certainly was a gay/straight issue. OLTL basically got rid of Kish (Kyle and Fish) because they were getting major backlash from their heterosexual audience over the storyline and the EP of OLTL decided to do away with them to save OLTL from losing anymore viewers, plain and simple. About the one decent gay or lesbian storyline that has ever been done was the Bianca Montgomery storyline on AMC. AMC did NOT shy away from that at all and they should be commended for it. GL gave Olivia and Natalia a somewhat happy ending but Ellen Wheeler would NOT let them show any kind of affection on the show, due in large part because of Wheeler’s Mormon views which she allowed to cloud her judgment when it came to Otalia’s storyline on GL.

Just my thoughts for the day.

They didn’t “have” to do anything. They didn’t “have” to make Chris sick. They didn’t “have” to kill off ANYONE. Chris getting better was in no way dependent on Reid dying, until the writers decided to come up with one of the worst story lines on the soap ever. I mean, really. Reid being unable to get his seatbelt off? And what, exactly, did Reid die of, considering every organ was in good enough shape to be be donated to someone else?

And considering there’s many Hughes characters on the show, Chris is not the “last” of the Hughes clan. He’s not even the youngest of the Hughes clan.

At least Goutman, Wheeler and the TPTB at AMC have told lgbt storylines. You can’t say the same for Brad Bell, who owns B&B. That soap revolves around fashion and they have never had an lgbt char ever. Their racial minority portrayals are even worse. The most they have had black chars is during this homeless storyline.

Teri is a great gal, but like the writers and TPTB she had no clue.For the love of God, the show was ending.There was no reason to kill Reid and leave Luke to grieve.And the backlash from the fans who loved Luke and Reid as a couple was like noything I had ever seen.Reid did not have to die….there was no reason.Van and Eric as Luke and Reid were so believable that in all my years of watching ATWT I never loved a couple as much as them.And the chemistry was so hot, hot , hot! I’m a straight woman of three straight adult sons so believe me i have no agenda.Bit this was a love story that should have had a happy ending like every other love story….but it didn’t…..please somebody tell me why.the show was going off for good….couldn’t the LuRe fans have a happy ending too!

I’ve thought about this a lot – and I think the reason that they chose to keep Chris alive at the expense of Reed is that Chris is a core character from a core family. Reed, IMO, was very much like the character of Jack in Titanic – a noble, heroic and romantic figure who existed at one specific period of time for Luke (as Jack did for Rose), to show them the maturity and value of love and sacrifice. Reed had no ties on the canvas to anyone, he was a loner with no family, and it was thru his connection to Luke that he learned of love and fulfillment. He was one of the great characters that this show was capable of creating – and as such, will be remembered by soap fans forever.

This show of 54 years was going off the air forever.There was no reason to kill Reid and leave Luke grieving.Everybody should have had a happy ending so we long time viewers could have remembered this show with happy thoughts.The sadness I feel for the Luke /Reid ending has truly destroyed all my happy memories of this show. And Reid was no longer a loner, he fell in love with Luke and they fulfilled each other.What a disgusting ending to a beautiful love story.Luke finally fell in love with a man and became a man because of it and Reid became so loving because he loved Luke.No one had to be sacrificed because the show was ending!Am i bitter, you bet!!!!

all of the writers & actors of any show have to follow the same script & back whatever the EP’s decision is if they ever want to keep working in this industry. if they come out & say that it was a horrible decision & it shouldn’t of been done that way is probably labeled a troublemaker & not given roles.
they also don’t have an emotional attachment to the characters like the fans do & as long as they get a scene that can be considered for an emmy they’re happy with it, hence the comments she made about Kathryn (Kim) & of course previous comments about Van being nominated for an emmy.
i think also that the 3 months between when they filmed a scene & it’s aired also contributed to this also. they forget what they’ve shot & are already on to other scenes & don’t know until it’s too late how the audience will respond to a scene & they can’t easily correct a storyline when the audience is in an uproar. if they would of done the 1 month or however long all of the other soaps use it can be corrected or rewritten when the fans start to complain.
but i think that the biggest problem is that alot of the EP’s just don’t care what the fans want & they have their own agenda & they don’t deviate from it & that’s why they’re losing fans & are in danger of being canceled.

Nope limeybird2. The actors don’t have to back whatever their soap does if they want to keep acting in Daytime. Many soap actors have spoken in interviews against their own soaps either while they were on their soap or when they had left their soap. And many of these actors have returned to their soaps or landed other soap roles.

I too like Terry as an actress, but she just doesn’t get it. Who cares about it providing an important story for the Hughes family. If Chris would not have survived, that still would have been an important story. I’m just saying that Luke & Reid deserved a happy ending just as the straight couples were given. Nancy’s death should have been more meaningful than it was. One death was enough. Why draw us into this great LuRe love story just give us such a tragic end. Don’t get me started on Chris and Katie having sex after only a couple of weeks, yet nothing for LuRe after months. May I say how homophobic was that. How pathetic it was that even in the end of the show Chris wasn’t even sure that he wanted the COS position. He didn’t deserve Reid’s or anyone else’s heart.

very well said!!!

I think Teri is so full of herself!! By the looks of it Aubery is set to be Katie2.0 no thankyou one life to live. Mmm Teri I’m 100 % positive god had nothing with you getting this role rather the devil!! this would explain yr arrogance, feeling so self important, please those casting people knew who Terri was Jean Passinate is writing at oltl and I think the 10 other girls auditing were also just has entitled as you, I’m sure they were just as established as you are in the acting field!, look at list of actor’s that were in the running for Joey. I thinkATWT should have let Chris die and given Reed, Luke their happy ending, but since Katie the sweetheart of show needed a happy ending Luke Reed suffer. Reed dying had every thing to do with Katie getting her happy ending!! Further more if the writers feel the actor is capable they will write accordingly. The fact that Katie showed no development and promise shows that colombin is not A capable enough actress. I find it hiliarious that Terri is presuding a career in holistic foods, everytime I seen pictures of her at events, she was chowing down on ice cream, steak mash an gravy, white wine, meat an dairy wow Teri you really into healthy eating!! Not!! Fyi god doesn’t appreciate liars, an adulterous, and the way you went about getting this role shows that you have a bad heart ! You, Justifying every single one your action in your interview proves my point. Ps what goes up must come down. karma is her name.


It is Reid not Reed

Karen, you are correct, actor’s to a degree have to do a certain amount of liaring but this chick take the cake in the liaring department. Ooh I think Terri had an emotionally attachment to Katie, for a evey stupid thing Katie did, Teri always defendd her character’s actions, I remember when Mara won her first emmy. Teri had a lot to say about Carly, Carly fans ect….. Terri is full of B S! seriously the luke reed scenes were really hard to forget an she to was in middle of that sl, for most part of it. There are so many ways of getting your point across without coming off as witch. At first I liked Terri but I do not like her anymore.- Aubery aka Big Apple,ps come emmy time. You just kn Teri will summit something off LR SL.

its not fair to blame the actor’s, but as an actor you have a responsibility to how you answer questions put to you, in my book being humble goes along way. An in that interview Terri is anything but.

Reid (out and out fan favorite character) was unceremonoiusly murdered to save Chris (a character with absolutely no rating with the fans). I am wondering if CG, JP, and ATWT would ever consider even the thought of killing a straight character to save a gay character, let alone actually writing such a story and airing it. I am extremely, extremely happy that ATWT bit the dust and is off the air. I sincerely hope that CG and JP will also bite the dust in each and every of their current and future (if any) endeavors.

Now that JP is associated with OLTL, I hope that soap bites the dust ASAP. It would be a field day when JP is unemployed for the rest of her life. She, and her twin evil spawn, CG, emphatically destroyed LURE of ATWT in the most homophobic manner. It will be very well deserved if their careers are ruthlessly steamrolled.

George ouch we would be left with no soaps as Chris Goutman is now working for Y&R!! His a show killer of sorts. I would have loved emmy winner Martha Byne on one life to live anyone other than emmy nominie ( for younger actress- mind you) Terri Colombino. I still can’t believe that she is so tacky in that interview, micheal fairman did such a good job of interviewing Terri, early this year what I will always Remember about that interview is a comment made to TC about a conversation he had with Austin about feeding his two kids. An TC totally brushed it off as Austin being happy. Now she is all into if its in gods plans it is as simple as that. Heartless, terri as been out of work three months her husband works an she couldnt let her bf ( who hasn’t had a soild acting gig in almost two years) whoes wife is a stay at home mom have a chance to feed his two boys plus wife. Its suprising how much gossip these magazines have on these two.

Big apple: It is much, much better not to have soaps than have CG and JP be associated with any soaps. Those heartless beings do’nt have any respect or consideration for their loyal viewers and fanbase. Would you want your heart to be broken by those merciless morons with another LURE debacle like fiasco. My GF and me don’t. We are never going to watch anything in which CG and JP are associated. Thnaks for letting us know that cold-blodded CG is working with Y&R. We will definitely not watch OLTL and Y&R. We invested our time and loyalty watching LURE and in the end we were completely shattered. From the back-lash of the fans at the horrrendous LURE ending, I am sure LURE and NUKE loyal fanbase who faithfulluy followed ATWT over the years felt totally cheated and sold-out.

Believe me, as a long time viewer of ATWT shattered doesn’t begin to describe how i felt when Reid died and Luke was left to grieve.I watched Luke grow from a boy to a man ….he became confident, had a purpose in life, and really fell in love with Reid.Reid changed from a snarky know it all to a loving and even tender man when he fell for Luke.Just watching their smiles to each other, and the looks they gave to each other….and the kisses ,unbelievable.I stopped thinking of them as characters on a soap and only saw them as two men totally in love with each other who really brought out the best in each other. I loved them and will always love them.What a disgusting ending to the best couple in years.I keep asking why? If the show wasn’t going off the air and they just got too hot for some people to handle, i could see why they’d do this,even though I would have been so despondent too.but the show was going off forever…it did not make sense and never will.TPTB hurt such loyal fans….how cruel.My favorite soap was going away but everyone should have had a happily ever after.I will never invest myself in any soap.ever again.But I do wish Eric and Van all the best….no other actors could have made Luke and Reid come to life.Their chemistry was unbelievable.And as Luke said to Reid,”you’re babbling’ before he kissed him…And i apologize because I’m babbling now!!!!

george: i feel your pain.and thanks for the eye opener I was really p.o to hear that chris goutman was w/ yandr. considering what he did to atwt. i dont realy have time to watch y and r. when yu think of all the free time i have nt watching y an r or oltl. i thank god i rather spend that time in my garden enjoy the fresh air. takin a walk or hanging with my crew at the mall. i refuse to watch that twit teri or any of chris goutman work.

Mmc, there isnt anything wrong in blabbing. i think it is great to get our points across. and view our opinons on the shows, actors good or bad.

Hi big apple, maybe you missed the scene when Luke told Reid , ‘you’re babbling” not blabbing, but it was such a touching scene.And then Noah had to show up and they stopped what they were doing.but to tell the truth, i’m babbling and blabbing again.Some of us just can’t let the Luke / Reid story go can we? I know I’m guilty!

Some of these comments are pretty harsh. I also hated the Reid ending, and to me it did feel like the gay characters were sacrificed so the straight characters got their happily ever after. That said, I’m not going to attack someone who doesn’t feel the same way as me. She has a difference of opinion; so what? That might make her naive, but not a bad person. It’s disappointing that some let their upset over the storyline make them want to bash those with a different view.

I agree….everybody is entitled to their opinion and they really should be able to express it.I’m still sad that the show is gone but I think I could have accepted it if everyone got a happily ever after.I just hope all the actors go on to wonderful things, especially Eric and my sweetheart Van!!!

‘As the World Turns’ Alum Martha Byrne Speaks Out On Conviction Against Her Husband, Michael McMahon: “We are Fighting Till the End”

If you have been following two-time Daytime Emmy-winning actress, Martha Byrne’s (ex-Lily, As the World Turns) social media accounts or have been following news reports, Byrne is adamantly speaking out about charges and a conviction levied against her husband, former decorated NYPD sergeant-turned-licensed private investigator, Michael McMahon.

The couple share three children together and have been married for over 30 years.  Last week, McMahon was preparing to go back to work. However, Michael was blindsided when a Brooklyn federal court convicted him and two others accused of stalking a New Jersey couple on behalf of China.

McMahon told the New York Post, that he felt betrayed by the Department of Justice (DOJ).  Clarifying further, Michael felt he and his family with Martha Byrne where being made scapegoats in the DOJ’s first case against Operation Fox Hunt, which is the Chinese Communist Party’s anti-corruption campaign that targets Chinese nationals abroad.  It also targets former government officials and others suspected of economic crimes against China.

In the case against McMahon, he was hired in fall of 2016 by what he believed was a translation company from New Jersey to do surveillance on a luxury New Jersey home occupied by a relative of Xu Jin and Liu Fang, and to use public records to find companies and other assets registered to the couple.  He was then informed that Xu and Liu had had stolen money from a construction company, and the people who hired him wanted to find where the cash had gone. However, McMahon says what he was not told was that Xu was a former official in Wuhan, who had fled China amid allegations of corruption.

McMahon said that when he conducted surveillance as he had done on numerous other cases.  However, what he did not know was that his work was used in a civil suit in New Jersey in 2018 against Xu and others by a Chinese construction group that alleged that they had embezzled millions from that company.

Things took a bad turn in October of 2020 when 12 federal agents surrounded McMahon and Byrne’s home.  Michael was arrested, but it wasn’t your normal arrest, he detailed.  McMahon didn’t think he needed a lawyer so he spoke to the FBI agents. He had wanted to help the government.

Byrne shared, “He was being as transparent as he possibly could. Instead, they turned everything against him and made him look like the devil in court. I’ve never seen such dark forces trying to portray him as an unlawful person.”

McMahon was charged with violating the Foreign Agents Registration Act by working for the Chinese government without telling the State Department, and with conspiracy to commit interstate stalking.

Byrne answered one soap fan’s inquiry to clarify what exactly happened to her husband in a Facebook post. She expressed: “He was hired to find assets on a civil matter. never asked to do ANYTHING illegal. The FBI let the Chinese agents flee, who were operating some scheme separately and unbeknownst to my husband, so the FBI turned their attention to an innocent man to save face. They took legal work as a PI and deemed it criminal for their own purposes. This is VERY VERY scary for every US citizen.”

In the NY Post account, it details that the DOJ shifted its focus to Operation Fox Hunt, targeting private investigators across the country, including McMahon.

Currently Michael is not allowed to be a private detective until this case is overturned.  He shared: “I didn’t harass or stalk anyone, and if I had been asked to do so, or if I had suspected that my clients worked for the Chinese Communist Party, I would have contacted the FBI right away and not proceeded with the job.”

Byrne expressed: “The DOJ knew this problem existed, that private investigators were being used, they knew the patterns well, but they communicated none of this until after Mike’s arrest … We are fighting to the end.”

McMahon’s lawyer will file a post-trial motion next month to overturn the conviction.

On her Twitter account, Martha shared their lawyer’s, Lawrence Lustberg’s statement: “We are obviously very disappointed with today’s verdict and feel strongly that it is not consistent with the evidence in the case but more importantly, is not consistent with the truth.  That truth is that Michael McMahon never had any idea that he was working for the Chinese Government.  If he had, he would not have taken the job or done the work he did.  His work in this case was the normal every day work of a private investigator and Mike’s conviction on the stalking counts, as a practical matter, criminalizes the work of private investigators in every case.  We will file post-trial motions and, if necessary appeal, until all possible appeals and lawful avenues to challenge this verdict have been exhausted.  And I believe that we will ultimately prevail because this conviction is a terrible injustice, one that I do not believe our legal system will allow to stand.”

Pride Month Celebrating LGBTQ+ Soap Supercouples: Nuke, Kish, Otalia & WilSon … Which Stands the Test of Time?

June is Pride Month, the time when across the U.S and the world there are celebrations and commemorations to recognize all who identify as LGBTQ and their allies.

Daytime soap operas have had a rocky road when it comes to the representation of same-sex couples.  The soaps have been at one time leaders in portraying key social issues of our time, as well as treading lightly on other subjects, as to its concerns to ‘turn-off’ its core audiences.

When you look back at the groundbreaking first same-sex weddings, and the first gay kiss, the soaps have come far in some ways in their representations of gay characters, but there is always work to be done to serve and to shed light on the under-represented.

As we reflect back to the then and the now, which LGBTQ soap supercouple remains your favorite and had made a lasting impact? Let’s take a look at four duos who captivated many viewers.

Nuke  – Luke Snyder and Noah Mayer – As the World Turns

Van Hansis (Luke) and Jake Silbermann (Noah) were a key part of the evolution of, and representation of LGBTQ character on the soaps.  ‘Nuke’, as they were known as, became the first gay male soap couple to share an on-screen kiss back in 2007.  ATWT also became known as the first soap to depict a fully realized romantic male couple as an integral part of the show.  There was plenty of backlash along the way for the long-awaited kiss to happen, but when it did, the show moved forward to tell their love story.

Otalia – Olivia Spencer and Natalia Rivera Aitoro – Guiding Light

When Crystal Chappell (Olivia) and Jessica Leccia (Natalia) began to play the love story of Otalia, they had to show their affection by a kiss on the head, or holding hands.  It took quite some time for GL to move forward to have two women, two moms, no less, share a lip lock. The complicated love story featured Natalia being conflicted to face her true romantic feelings for Olivia, because of her value system and religions upbringing, and that made this all the more riveting and frustrating at the same time.  In the end, the rabid fan base for this duo was so great that Chappell wound up creating her own series, Venice, to honor and serve them, remaining one of the LGBTQ communities greatest allies.

Kish – Kyle Lewis and Oliver Fish – One Life to Live

In 2009, One Life to Live’s Kyle Lewis (Brett Claywell) was an out lab tech in Llanview, who back in college had a relationship with Officer Oliver Fish (Scott Evans).  It imploded when Oliver denied he was gay.  For years, Oliver remained in the closet, before finally coming out to himself and Kyle.

Kish had been a big success with the media and One Life’s gay audience. LGBTQ-advocacy groups honored the couple and the story.  However, Kish was cut short when the network felt that the data showed that the storyline was not resonating with the show’s core audience.

WilSon – Will Horton and Sonny Kiriakis – Days of our Lives

Days of our Lives delivered daytime’s first-ever gay male wedding in 2014, between Will (then played by Guy Wilson) and Sonny (then played by Freddie Smith).

In an interview with EW, Days of our Lives executive producer, Ken Corday shared on the union, “Will and Sonny have been together for a while and it was the natural progression of their love story. We didn’t feel like there was anything we could or couldn’t do, we treated them like any other couple on the canvas and continued to grow their romance as such.”

In addition, the coming out story of Will Horton was critically praised and noteworthy for the performances of Chandler Massey, who won three Daytime Emmys for his work in the Outstanding Younger Actor category 2012, 2013 and 2014.  Freddie Smith also won in the same category in 2015.  Will has been played over the years by Chandler Massey and Guy Wilson, while Sonny has been portrayed by Freddie Smith and Zach Tinker.

There have been several other key LGBTQ couples throughout the course of daytime history including All My Children’s Bianca (Eden Riegel) and Reese (Tamara Braun). These two characters were involved in the first same-sex lesbian wedding on daytime. Problem was … Reese kissed Zach (Thorsten Kaye) before the wedding, making this infuriating for viewers at home.

Other notable LGBTQ couples through the years have included: Bianca and Maggie on All My Children, Mariah and Tessa of The Young and the Restless played bv Camryn Grimes and Cait Fairbanks, Maya and Rick on The Bold and the Beautiful, Lucas and Brad on General Hospital and others.

Which couple do you think has had the most lasting impact on the history of LGBTQ representation on daytime soap operas? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

As the World Turns Castmates Mourn the Loss of Elizabeth Hubbard

UPDATED: Monday, the soap world was saddened by the loss of one of the most respected actress ever in the genre, when the news broke of the death of Daytime Emmy-winner, Elizabeth Hubbard.

This powerhouse performer who was best known for her work as Dr. Althea Davis on The Doctors, and as Lucinda Walsh on As the World Turns, died this past Saturday at her home in Connecticut from cancer.

Throughout this afternoon, several of Hubbard’s former As the World Turns castmates took to social media to share their reactions on the passing of this beloved daytime icon.  In addition, Retro TV, which has been airing vintage episodes of The Doctors, also paid tribute to Hubbard.

Martha Byrne (ex-Lily, ATWT) shared on her Instagram: As many of you are finding out this morning, Elizabeth Hubbard passed away. First and foremost I want everyone to know I made sure she was aware of how much everyone loved her. I would share your comments from social media, videos and your fond memories of her as Lucinda, Althea, every time I saw her. She loved the audience and fought like HELL to bring truth and honesty to her performances. On a personal level there aren’t words to describe how much she meant to me. Only feelings, which override words in so many cases when it comes to love. I will be sharing more so we can all grieve together but here are our last words together only just a few days ago. I said, “Liz, do you know how much you have done for me?” She said, “You can do more.” Because of what she has done for me over the last 38 years, the strength and fearless nature in how she lived her life, she is right, I can AND WILL do more. I look forward to sharing more about her life, which encompasses so much more than her INCREDIBLE career on daytime television. She also said to me when I told her how much the fans loved her…”I tried.” She more than tried. She left it all on the screen. I’ll miss her every day but grateful the universe gifted me with such a force of nature, of which the world will not see the likes of again. ❤️”

Michael Park (ex-Jack) shared via Twitter: “If Liz was involved in a scene I was lucky enough to be in, I could always count on learning a little something and laughing a whole lot. She was a ferocious talent in love with her craft. One of the greats that will certainly be missed.”

Mary Beth Evans (ex-Sierra, ATWT and now Kayla, DAYS) expressed: “I was so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Elizabeth Hubbard for six years on As the World Turns, where she played my mother. What an amazing powerhouse this woman was … always striving for spontaneity and keeping it real. My favorite times with her were riding in the car from Manhattan to Brooklyn — the stories she would tell were so much fun. Rest in peace, sweet lady. #RIPLIZ #ATWT

Peter Boynton (ex-Tonio, ATWT) added: “Rest in peace, Boss! Working with/for you at ‘Walsh Enterprises’ was a highlight of my NYC years! Your encouragement and respect meant the world to me. I’m raising a glass to you and feel so lucky to have worked with you in that great ‘ATWT’ community. On angels wings. – Peter ‘Tonio Reyes’ Boynton.”

Scott Bryce (ex-Craig, ATWT) said, “She was astonishing. Liz RIP. Love you woman.”

Retro TV expressed: “We are saddened to hear of soap-opera legend Elizabeth Hubbard’s passing at age 89. A force to be reckoned with, Hubbard stole our hearts with her portrayal of Althea Davis on The Doctors. Please share your favorite memories with us as we remember the beloved Elizabeth Hubbard.”

In addition, Alec Baldwin who played Billy Aldrich on The Doctors wrote: “I worked on The Doctors with the great Liz Hubbard. An amazing woman and remarkable actress.”

Michael Fairman TV will continue to update this post as reactions continue from Liz’s colleagues.
