Van Hansis new film "Occupant" – Check out the new trailer!

© JPI Studios

Van Hansis’s (Luke, ATWT)  first feature film Occupant has a brand new longer trailer that was released within in the last 24 hours.   When Van in his recent interview with On-Air On-Soaps discussed how fantastic the cinematography was, he was not kidding!  The trailer is spooky, eerie, and riveting enough to make you want to see more.

You will also see Thorsten Kaye (Zach, AMC) playing the doorman in the building that this whole psychological/horror film takes place.

Watch Van after the jump in Occupant!

Oh yes, you totally should watch this film if only because Van does a fantastic job in it. Plus, Van said it is more of a psychological thriller. It has gothic effects and that’s beautifully done. And I love Van too!!

Van said that this movie is a thriller that “f*cks with your head”. I am totally for that kind of movies and Van Hansis playing the leading role is like Heaven for me.

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.

Share your remembrances and condolences for Mary Linda in the comment section.
