Oh, that sound you hear is a thud for many long time One Life to Live fans, who over the past eight years have been witness to some of the most incredible performances in daytime by Trevor St. John.  Today in New York City, Trevor ended his run as Todd Manning, or whoever he could turn out to be,  on his final tape day.

As Trevor previously announced to his fans on his website blog, the week of July 18th would be his last at OLTL.  We hear that Trevor will air well into the next few months, so we do not have a final confirmed airdate.

We clearly recall some of the most riveting moments came during his run on the series when Trevor’s Todd was sent to death by lethal injection and had to say goodbye to his family!  TSJ should have won an Emmy for that one, folks!

According to Soap Opera Digest, Trevor treated the entire cast and crew today to a yummy craft services table including breakfast, lunch and snacks. One insider told SOD, “It was very nice of him.”

On-Air On-Soaps wishes Trevor best of luck in his future endeavors and we can’t wait to see you in your next role.  For now we will watch the unraveling story of the Two Todd’s!

My heart bleeds. What might have been: a romance with Evangeline; a Todd/Vange/ John triangle; the resulting obligatory “who’s the father” paternity s/l; the spectre of a jealous Blair; the marriage of and the eventual divorce of Todd and Evangeline. Todd kills Rex (in self defense), Evangeline prosecutes him; then in an about face quits the DA’s office to defend him! Years of Drama, Drama, Drama.

He IS a nice guy. Despite him getting kicked in teeth by TPTB.

This is kind of bittersweet news…Yes he is awesome as Todd but Roger was awesome as Todd. Fans have won all along with both actors. I used to be a big fan of OLTL but being a long suffering Jolie fan, I’ve only been watching off and on since mid 2007. Now I’m tuning in daily and excited to see what they do with this two Todd story.

I’m really goingto miss Trevor St. John. He is a wonderufl actor. I loved Roger Howarth and once thought no one could replace him, but St. John did a marvellous job. Who knows how things will turn out with OLTL being on the internet in the future anyway. Good luck to TSJ in his future endeavors.

OLTL is continuing…..so MUST Trevor! Producers, PLEASE bring him back. As stated above, there is no one like him. He is the best, and he is our Todd! The show just wont be the same. He brings us to the ultimate heights of every emotion there is. Too many of the better actors are leaving. This just isn’t right! What can we do to keep Trevor??!!

I realize that RH was the original Todd, but when TSJ stepped in he brought a fresh and relatable perspective to Todd that had been lacking before for this viewer. It wasn’t until TSJ took over that I began to enjoy Todd. There were still shades of dark, but intermixed was a new wit and snark that only TSJ could have infused. He is the only Todd for me and regardless of what is revealed for his character, he will go out as the one and ONLY Todd Manning for me. I hope that with the few remaining soaps left… Read more »

I have enjoyed TSJ when he first arrived but the last year and half he has been just walking through his scenes and lost the “suffering” in Todd’s soul, which Roger’s Todd always showed Todd’s tortured soul. I’m not unhappy about him is leaving, I have always preferred Roger over Trevor. Yesterday did anyone see the scene TSJ was doing with Sam? When he was yelling at Sam, I mean did you see the child actor playing Sam …flinch. The kid looked scared, I didn’t like that at all the producer need to tone that scene down. Good bye TSJ… Read more »

Oh please. It is called acting! RH has always been scarier. Can we say intense rape scene? TSJ deserved better and you are grasping to find fault. Worst injustice in daytime, the way this played out. Period!

So, is OLTL jumping the shark with two Todds? The actor was so good yet dumped after 8 years. Imposter Todd after 8 years? Days gets reamed for this kind of thing but not OLTL. Double standard.

Trevor St. John entertained me for eight years as the tortured Todd Manning. I wish the actor the very best and if I were one of the four remaining network soaps, I’d be looking to see if he would fit in with my canvas. St. John had amazing chemistry with Florencia Lozano (Tea) and his work at OLTL will never be forgotten. Thanks for the years of entertainment, Mr. St. John!

I’m a relative latecomer to OLTL, finding it as a welcome refuge from the dreck that AMC had become 4 or so years ago, and TSJ was one of the main reasons I stuck around. (The other reasons were Erika Slezak, Robin Strasser and Florenzia Lozano). TSJ’s Todd was infuriating, horrifying, loving, and in the end, mesmerizing. I will really miss this actor.

Trevor an excellent actor and I believe he has a great future ahead of him. Roger Howarth is the one and only Todd. He brings many levels to that character. You can love him; hate him and have compassion for him. I am glad he is back and I can’t wait to find out how this story plays out.

*It was a classy thing that Trevor did on his last day.

elisabeh

But not a classy thing that they did to him! RH needs all the power, he toyed about coming back off and on for yrs. TSJ did not deserve to be a man in waiting until RH and TPTB decided to give the role back when RH wanted back in. Eight yrs of dedication FOR WHAT? I don’t know these actors on the show keep silent. I don’t know how anyone thinks it’s ok! Like RH or not, the whole thing is souless & insensitive!

Letting Trevor go before OLTL leaves broadcast TV was a big mistake…unless he was difficult to work with or a pain in the *** on set. (I have not heard that he was either of those things…)

Trevor St John is the only reason that I stayed watch OLTL in the last 8 years. He did an outstanding job and no one will every out do him when it comes to playing Todd. He will be truly missed by his fans. He had so much chemistry with everyone he inter acted with. I loved him with Blair but when Tea came back he truly came to live for me. I will miss you and so look forward to your next endeavors.

Le sigh…. I love some TSJ. He’s steadily climbed to the top of my list of favorite daytime actors, replacing both Ric Hearst & Laura Wright. He should’ve won that Emmy for those scenes, as well been nom’d for others. That’s a darn shame. *SMH* I don’t think TPTB really ever fully realized the gift & the treasure they had in TSJ, if not things would’ve been different & he’d still be there. My heart is heavy, but I feel certain that we’ll see him again in bigger & brighter things…. like Primetime for sure. If ever there was a… Read more »

Trevor has an innate style all his own. He is truly an original. He can be quiet and then explode. I have enjoyed his Todd, not even thinking they were going to bring back Roger. Are the TPTB just cleaning up before they get ready to leave? I hope they haven’t dug a hole for themselves and the fans that they can’t get out of, leaving the crumbs they scattered all over the place. I have been racking my brain as to what can be thrown to us next. Too many stories, with insignificant actors. And, how long are they… Read more »

I’ve seen both actors in the role from the beginning and for me TSJ will ALWAYS be Todd Manning! Trevor’s final air day will be my final day watching OLTL and I’ve been with the show for over 30 years. I know talent when I see it and TPTB are making a HUGE MISTAKE letting Trevor St. John go. I’ll follow him wherever he goes and OLTL will become dead to me. Without TSJ, there just is no show! Love the suggestions above but I’m envisioning TSJ on Criminal Minds (he’d be awesome opposite MGG) or NCIS. I can see… Read more »

TSJ’s Todd was a handsome, complex, fascinating character, which I preferred over the RH version. TSJ’s contribution to OLTL has been incredible. I have loved every moment of every performance. I can’t imagine looking forward to watching OLTL without him. OLTL is self-destructing with the loss of so many significant actors. Trevor I can’t thank you enough for eight years of stunning performances. Of course, you deserved an Emmy. I hope this temporary setback will turn out to be an advantage, that you will find other work and achieve greater recognition of your talents. You are so loved and will… Read more »

It’s sad that Trevor left. When OLTL runs out of ideas, they resort to stunt casting, which is exactly what the RH thing is all about. It’s the same thing that happens when they bring back Tuc Watkins. They don’t need the character, but they just run out of ideas, and he’s good for some sort of filler. Hopefully if OLTL becomes seasonal with Prospect Park, they will produce a show with new writers who know how to write tight, compelling stories instead of the dead end drivel that we’ve seen lately.

Trevor when inspired did really young jack nicholson proud. Terrific early on as Todd. However when he started dictating his ideas of storyline, dissing his story with Blair, who as a colleague stood by him and always supported the change of face as Todd, you cross the line. Changing from rehearsals to tape throwing off your colleagues who rehearsed the script to mean one thing and on camera see it fly another way because you are bored is not professional. Effectively he turned an enigmatic character into a cry baby at his execution, which Todd would never do, he turned… Read more »

I don’t understand how you can say Trevor turned the character of Todd into a cry baby. He didnt write his own script the writers did. So if you want to blame any one blame them. Some of you fan have not been fair to Trevor who did not ask to play the character of Todd, that would be the producer of this show. Anyway what Trevor brought to the show was a sexy Todd which Roger could never pull off because he’s not a sexy actor or man. Trevor added so may different layers to the character of Todd… Read more »

Trevor was indeed a class act. He is the only Todd for me and since I don’t look at the show anymore, he will always be Todd to me. I wish him so much luck in his future, and whereever he goes I will surely watch. I would love to see him on the Young and Restless or the Bold and the Beautiful. He and Brooke could really steam up the screen, and how about having scenes with Stephanie. I will never forgive how TPTB treated Trevor bring Roger back. And how Roger’s fans cheered one man losing his job,… Read more »

Oh good Lord, Trevor isn’t that in demand either for prime time and film. He is a fine actor. But let me tell you he changed slants on scripts, and it didn’t please a lot of his colleagues. tried to keep it fresh. I am all for his great talent, and wish him well…. he is bored in daytime. Hope he finds a job somewhere worthy of his talents. Meanwhile, cry baby Todd doesn’t work for me. Pay attention to history in a character. He did not. Many people plat Hamlet, as Mr. St. John said, and his slant on… Read more »

Do you work for ABC/One Life To Live? How do you know what kind of offers Trevor have received. One thing for sure Roger sure didn’t receive any or he would not have returned to One Life To Live to take another actor’s job. You are so right i will watch for my fave where I can find him . but remember what goes around comes around . When something dirty is done to someone they pay for it down the line. People who watch this version of Todd played by Roger keep talking about the character being an icon… Read more »

I think the only way the show could bring RH back and try to pass him off as Todd is to suddenly deny that TSJ is portraying Todd. They KNEW that RH couldn’t portray Todd the way Trevor does because his version (RH) is more one-note. Trevor is much more complex and he could do anything you threw at him. RH could not pull that off in my opinion much less as well as TSJ. So, they had to claim TSJ was not Todd. But, in truth, Trevor is Todd to many of us and he always will be. I… Read more »

TSJ has been amazing. I was 31 when he came on as the new Todd and he didn’t skip a beat. Everything about the new actor in the old role made it exciting to watch. Over the last couple of years I have fast forwarded my DVR to watch only the scences with involved TSJ. Anyway, I will deeply miss the actor but look forward to the the return of the original Todd. The show must go on…

Can’t wait to see TSJ on the big screen. Maybe he can play James Bond??

I will miss TSJ. He was the only Todd I knew. I started watching OLTL because of him during the time he receieved the lethat injection. He should have won an award for his acting. In my opinion the show should have kept him until the end because there was plenty more story to tell, expecially after learning he was victor. OLTL lost a multitude of good story to tell about Victor and Todd. Tea would love and have Victor and Todd would have Blair. Would it have hurt them to keep him until the show ended on abc.

Kelly Ripa Talks On Her New Memoir ‘Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories’

Talk show host and All My Children alum, Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley) is opening up about her life and times in her highly-anticipated memoir available now, Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories.

Ripa chatted exclusively with PEOPLE who got some of intel and dish on what’s included in the book.

Kelly told PEOPLE, when she landed the gig as the new co-host of Live with Regis and Kelly, with the late Regis Philbin back in 2001, she felt like she was “getting shot out of a cannon.”  Ripa was also appearing on All My Children at the same time.

She tells the story of when her agent called with the offer, Ripa was told: “They want you to know who your boss is. It was very ominous, and it did not feel good.”  Her agent also said the show didn’t want her, “bringing an entourage.” She brought two people. “I came with hair and makeup,” Kelly says. “It was not an unusual thing for people on a television show to show up with.”

She added that Regis greeted her with executive producer, Michael Gelman, saying: “Uh-oh, Gelman, it’s got an entourage.” It?!  Kelly expressed that she “felt horrible.  He was probably trying to be funny, but at the same time it felt like a pile-on.”

As for Philbin’s attitude at the time, Kelly shared, “I understand that probably he didn’t want a co-host, but the network wanted me to be the co-host and I didn’t think I should pass up that opportunity. I don’t think it was fair to him. But it was also not fair to me.”

The actress-talk show host-producer also talked on her marriage to Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo), whom she met while both were on All My Children, sharing that they were, “too young to get married! On paper it should not have worked and when it didn’t work, we really worked at it. We fought for our marriage when it would have been easier to quit and throw in the towel.”

According to the book publisher, HarperCollins:  “In ‘Live Wire’, her first book, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. Whether recounting how she and Mark (Consuelos) really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.”

Roark Critchlow on His Return to DAYS and Working With Cady McClain

It’s been 12 years since Roark Critchlow appeared on Days of our Lives as Dr. Mike Horton, the brother of Jennifer Horton Deveraux (Cady McClain). However, fans have been excited to see him back on their screens when the series teased his appearance in the extended fall preview.

Now with Jennifer spiraling downward (now that her pill-popping addiction is back), it seems like a good time for Dr. Mike to return to Salem to help his sis. (And if the promo for this week’s DAYS is any indication, it certainly looks like Jennifer is going to be involved in a car crash and need medical assistance or at least some brotherly love.)

Photo: JPI

Roark initially appeared as Mike back in 1994 and left the soap back in 1999. He returned in 2010 for a few episodes honoring the late Frances Reid (Alice Horton) who was Mike’s grandmother.

In an interview about his return with Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Roark talks about working with McClain as Jennifer, when he previously worked with Missy Reeves in the part.

Critchlow expressed on sharing scenes with McClain: “Her character is going through a lot. She and I dropped in really easily, I felt. It was a very nice, natural care for each other. It wasn’t difficult, that’s for sure. Obviously, Missy is a super-duper person. But you don’t compare people. Cady and I chatted. We got on good. In terms of story, I thought we pulled it off nicely as being people who’ve known each other their whole lives.”

Look for Roark to make his DAYS re-emergence on the upcoming October 3rd episode of the Peacock streaming series.

So, looking forward to seeing Roark and Cady sharing scenes together? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first check out this week’s promo for DAYS below.

John Cena Sets World Record After Granting 650th Wish for the Make-A-Wish-Foundation

There is nobody more requested at the Make-A-Wish Foundation than John Cena. The 16-time WWE wrestling champ-turned-actor for years has granted the wishes of children with critical illnesses for the non-profit foundation.

Now comes the news from the Guinness Book of World Records that Cena has broken the record for granting 650 wishes to children who have put him as the person they want to meet the most.

 

Photo: WWE

To put this into context, no other celebrity has ever granted more than 200 wishes in the 42-year existence of Make-A-Wish.

According to a press release, Cena started granting wishes back in 2002 and completed his 100th in 2012, now he is at 650.

Recently this past June, John visited Misha, a teenager with down-syndrome who fled Ukraine after his home was destroyed. In order to keep Misha’s spirits up, his mother told him they were on their way to find John Cena. You can watch their story below, followed by a video package honoring Cena’s 500th milestone with the organization.

On a personal note: as someone who at one time worked as the Director of Communications for the Make-A-Wish-Foundation at a locale chapter in the U.S, I know the smiles and the impact a visit from a child’s personal idol can make to help lift their spirits when trying to cope with critical health issues.

Congratulations John!
