I am such a fan of Van Hansis .besides being so talented, he really is such a nice guy, this comes across in every interview he does.I waited on that phone line from 7:45 till after nine and was unable to talk to him which was very disappointing.I didn’t like the interviewing that Ryan Holmes did last night.He only took a couple of calls and then Jake Silbermann called in and was talking to Van for too long…it took time away from so many other calls and I really didn’t rhink that was fair.I’m not blaming Jake, but the host… Read more »

Actually, Van stayed on answering questions for about 20 more minutes after Jake’s call ended, much longer than the scheduled interview time. Call-ins are never a big part of the show’s format, so it was pretty awesome of Van and Ryan both to stick around and do so much extra for the fans who wanted to talk to him. And so awesome to hear Van having so much fun talking with Jake! 🙂

And here we go again. mmc, you’re predictable; I’ll give you that. Anyway, I’m sorry you didn’t get on, but that had nothing to do with Jake. Jake’s call was in the last 5 minutes of the scheduled hour, and he was on with Van for 15 minutes. The call went on half an hour past the scheduled 1-hour. So that was still an extra 15 minutes of Van in addition to the extra 15 minutes of him with Jake. Jake’s call actually made Van extend the interview, and I was all for that! Van took several more calls after… Read more »

I loved that Van’s interview was about Van and his comments were so insightful. Van Hansis’ interviews by Michael Fairman and Roger are the best. Van Hansis has always so much interesting points to say.

In one of the LURE scences, Luke told Reid that the later had sold the former by chosing his job over love (when it was actually the other way round). Fom Van’s current interview, It was refreshing to know that he did not want a train accident ending for Reid. Even after three months of the LURE ending debacle, it ia still dificult to comprehend that the producers and writers of the now ended AWT would actually come up with the ending which has to go down in soap history as the worst ever! The producers and writers of ATWT… Read more »

I agree with you.The Luke and reid story was so lovely.as a long time ATWT viewer i could not understand would kill off one half of the most popular couple in daytime.I could understand(not like it) if the show was going to stay on forever because TPTB would not have let this hot love story continue.But the show was leaving forever.Why not let Luke and Reid have their happy ending.to this day when I watch them on You Tube i cry.Two beautiful men who fell in love and became better because of it.And Eric and Van ,great actors .I was… Read more »

I agree but there is one gay couple had happy ending. They are Christian Mann and Oliver Sabel from German soap opera Verbotene Liebe (Forbidden Love). They are played wonderfuly by Thore Schölermann and Jo Weil.
They got married and now have foster daughter. They are still on the show!!

Van and Eric did wondeful job as Luke and Reid. I have have seen such wonderful chemistry between two actor. I love that Van said he would work again with Eric.

I loved the interview. It was so nice to hear Van’s voice again. To me he has the best radio voice ever. I missed listening to it. Of course I loved Jake prank calling Van. That was just freaking hilarious and you could tell that Van enjoyed talking to Jake. The interview showed once again what a giving person Van is, he even stayed longer to take more calls from fans. It’s a shame but unfortunately, not everyone who wants to talk to the person being interviewed gets to because of lack of time. This is always the case. With… Read more »

Jake was so bad with his accent that Van recognized him immediately. And if Jake wanted some news about Van, he would have called him in private. No, he just wanted some publicity.

Nicole

Well, it’s good you’re a mindreader. Guess it couldn’t have had anything to do with Van being on a show with Jake’s old college buddy…

Geez, why would Jake need publicity? His haters give him coverage 24/7, making sure that articles about him that might get 10 or 20 comments gets 30 or 40! Imagine what wonders in publicity you guys could achieve if you actually spent as much time pimping your own fave as bashing someone else’s.

I think all you rluke fans are all diluded!!. you only have to on on you tube and view all the many clips of Van and Jake together to see that they have a real chemistry and and REAL friendship. Erics not interested in meeting fans. you wont find any clips of him doing anything. Jake and Van have a real chemistry – a chemistry that eric and van did not have.

Van and Jake have a true friendship and they get along so well but to say that Van and Eric as Luke and Reid did not have chemistry is such a delusional statement.In all the years of my watching soaps I have never seen such chemistry between two actors.The LuRe love story was so beautiful and like nothing I had ever seen.Maybe Van and Eric are not friends outside of Atwt but I know they admire and respect each others talents.In all fairness Eric does have a wife and young children so his priorities might not be the same as… Read more »

If Eric had called in, I’m sure the Lure fans would had been ecstatic, although I have a feeling, that it wouldn’t have been as funny as it was with Jake… So no reason to complain about the prank call on every single forum.

Jake wasn’t funny, he was bad.

Well, I didn’t say Jake was funny… I said it wouldn’t have been as funny if Eric had called in.

I’m a LuRe fan and believe me, It wouldn’t have mattered if Eric had called in.5 minutes was more than enough no matter who called in. I wanted to hear Van…I know I’m missing him and so are so many others.He’s such a sweetheart!

You’re right. If Eric had called in, it would have lasted 5 minutes. Or maybe 5 seconds. I don’t think Van and Eric have that much to say to each other.

Van and Eric respect each other professionally and thus that makes their comments about each other more honest. In his last interview, Eric said that van is a fantastic actor and that his work deserves an Emmy Award! It’s a sincere opinion.

If Eric had called in, that, too, would have rocked. 🙂

Van’s answers to the questions were deeply intelligent! His voice was so lovely! I wanted to call and ask him a question but didn’t enough time. I am so impatiently waiting to watch Van in a show again!

Me too.What’s wrong with the casting directors.Don’t they know talent when they see it?He has it all…looks, great acting skills and he’s such a nice guy.I’m dying for him to get a permanent job.That’s all I want for Christmas!

Oh yes Van Hansis getting the role he deserves is one of my wishes for Christmas too! Van is honestly the most talented actor I saw on my screen. Plus he is respectful and so kind to everyone.

Here is a subject on which we can all agree. The person in Hollywood who ends up casting Van will be regarded a genius forevermore. He is oozing talent out his fingernails. We have to remember he hasn’t been in LA very long, but it’s only a matter of time before someone strikes casting gold by putting him in their project.

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.
