On-Air On-Soaps was on the set of General Hospital recently, when we heard that One Life to Live’s executive producer, Frank Valentini was in town to direct the new original web series with character mash-ups pairing one famous soap character from one soap with another.   The online series called: “What-If’s” look pretty exciting if you ask me from this teaser video released by ABC.

The “What-If’s” will live at both ABC.com and SOAPnet.com.  Now, fans can see GH’s Spinelli with OLTL’s Todd, or GH’s Carly with AMC’s Ryan, and of course, GH’s Sonny with AMC’s Erica, in intriguing  story, and that is just a few of the fantastical pairings coming your way with the characters you love from All My Children, One Life to Live, and General Hospital. Check out the video teaser, and then let us know what pairing you are most excited to see! And, what would you love to see happen to these intermingled twosomes?  Watch the video after the jump.

Well, this is fascinating! Personally, I would love to see Tony Geary with Erica Slezak. They are the finest actors on soaps and would be a formidable match. Now, Spinelli with Todd Manning would be hysterical because Todd wouldn’t put up with Spinelli for more than five seconds.He would throw out out of the airplane if they were sitting side by side. Interesting idea, though……

All My Children Alum Ben Jörgensen Reportedly Dead At 51

According to his former All My Children castmate, Brian Gaskill. there is sad news in the soap world today.  Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin on All My Children and Chris on As the World Turns passed away on Tuesday at the age of 51, apparently via suicide, although unconfirmed as to his cause of death.

Gaskill, who played Bobby Warner while in Pine Valley shared via his Instagram:  “Sad news to report. Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin Sheffield on All My Children has past away at 51 years old.  My understanding is it was suicide.  I have heard he suffered from Bipolar disorder but as I have not spoke to him in years I do not know all the details. I just want to remember the good times we had on the set of All My Children 24 years ago. He was a good guy and had the courage to play a gay teenager on tv back when it was nowhere near as common to have representation as it is today. He was part of an award winning storyline…but mostly we just had some good times back then…my condolences go out to his friends and family. Please everybody hang in there and reach out for help if you need it. ”

Since the time of Brian’s posting, friends, colleagues and fans have been posting tributes and condolences on the actor’s Facebook page.  You can view that here.

On All My Children, Ben was part of the important social issue storyline brought into the ABC legacy soap opera by the iconic Agnes Nixon, who was always trying to move the needle forward in daytime, as the character of Kevin was a gay high school student facing bullying, ridicule and discrimination for his sexuality.
