This looks good! I love Tom Phelprey and I liked Melissa on OLTL. I hope to see this movie. Tom should be a big star like a lot of the Guiding Light alumns like Hayden P. and Matthew Bomer.

Movie is also available on demand through most cable providers. It is also available via iTunes and Amazon.com. It is not showing in my area, but I look forward to watching it tonight at home.

Oh and Blake I agree with you comment about Tom being a big star, but you also forgot one of the biggest stars from GL Kevin Bacon.

This looks really good! Can’t wait to see it. Love Melissa Archer and she has a wonderful sense of humor. Remember that we saw some of it with her & Michael Easton on OLTL. Hope she heads to GH now and gets her man back!!!!!

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.
