The best of the best is how many daytime actors, colleagues, and fans would deem Daytime Emmy winner and icon, Elizabeth Hubbard.

From her role as Dr. Althea Davis on The Doctors, where she won her Daytime Emmy in 1974, and another for her role as the leading role in First Lady Diaries: Edith Wilson, to her daytime drama star turn as Lucinda Walsh on the iconic As the World Turns, any opportunity to  get to see Elizabeth act is pure joy.

Anthony Anderson, creator of the hit online series Anacostia, has Hubbard guest-starring on the series new season. How did it all come about?  That would be also because of another multi- Daytime Emmy winner, Martha Byrne (Ex-Lily, ATWT).  Back in April, Byrne took home the gold for her performance in Anacostia as Alexis Jordan.   In the new season of Anacostia, Byrne wrote Hubbard’s story arc along with Anderson and directed her.   ATWT fans will get to see former on-screen mother and daughter together again.

Check out the teaser for the new season of Anacostia coming this month, and let us know if you are looking forward to seeing Hubbard and Byrne together again!

Two comments: (1) I am unfamiliar with the actors in the clip besides Hubbard and Byrne, but there is some impressive acting and writing going on; I watched the clip because of Hubbard and Byrne but I will definitely tune in to this series to watch some of these other actors/characters. And (2) Ms. Martha Byrne has become an extraordinarily beautiful woman–which is not to say she wasn’t quite pretty when she was younger, but she’s absolutely gorgeous here. (What wouldn’t we all give to have the good fortune of getting better looking as we age? Sigh.)

ATWT and OLTL Alum Mary Linda Rapelye Passes Away at 76

She got her soap start as Faith Kipling, the wife of the evil Dr. Ivan Kipling on One Life to Live (1979-1980) and later came to Oakdale and As the World Turns as lawyer, Maggie Crawford (1980-1985), and now comes sad news that actress Mary Linda Rapelye has died from a battle with cancer.

Mary Linda actually passed away last month on April 5th, and according to The Booth Bay Register she was surrounded by her her brother Gardiner Rapelye Jr. and dear friends Julianna and Will Anderson by her side.  She was 76 years old at the time of her death.

Mary Linda started a long career of acting when she was only 5.  After her part in an outdoor production at The Starlight Theater in her home town, Kansas City, Missouri, she climbed off the stage and sat in her father’s lap. This was to be the beginning of her work spanning nearly eight decades on stage, screen and television. She is best known for her roles in Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood, and of course, OLTL and ATWT.  She also made a memorable appearance in the role of Irina Galliulin in the Star Trek: The Original Series third season episode “The Way to Eden”.

A Memorial and Celebration of Life is being planned this July for MaryLinda in Booth Bay.

Below is a tribute video featuring clips and moments from Rapelye’s career.
