I am for Robert S Wood to Win And I love all these guys that are up for the emmy but Robert is my favorite because he was on my favorite soap and he is a hell of a good actor that deserves the win, I can’t believe there are 4 guys that I like in the best actor series. Robert S Woods for the win.

Totally 100% with you Barbara too be honest I am TG fatigued out but everyone is predicting TG has it sowed up! TG has been deserving some years and some not the year Grant Alexander was up for GL TG won and I think he stole it GA was phenomenal that year it has become to political for my tastes .Robert Woods has a different style a suble style that makes you not realize how good he is plus he is the nicest guy off camera!!!!

I love Robert he is one of my favorites from One life to live he is so genuine, down to earth, And one of day times best actors, I miss him, would love to see Bo and Nora do a few dances, then sit down and eat some junk food discussing what ever is happening with their family or what is going on in Landview. I loved them as a couple. That’s the one thing there was on one life to live happy families and couples that loved each other, I hope that our Visitors from landview can help the citizens of Port Charles learn how to truly love because one life to live was always above everything else, all about family.

Well Barbara you will really like this one a friend of mine who is a GH junky said Tony Geary should not be in lead actor he should be in supporting because he is gone so much, she thinks JJackson should have been lead because he carried more story then any of the other GH actors, in other words she thinks JJ and TG shoul have been reversed but she wants RWoods to win. I can’t watch it so you guys cheer them on and I am praying RHearst gets it for GH.

This is a difficult choice. But I would hope Bob Woods could make it. I am always going to believe, though that Tony Geary is the best actor overall, because he seems to have all the tools to take the story and capture you along the way and you become invested. Good luck to one and all….

Anthony Geary for his record breaking 7th Emmy win.

Sad news to report this Wednesday.  Christopher Lawford, best known to soap fans as Charlie Brent on All My Children from 1992-95, as well in the role of Senator Jordan on General Hospital in 2004, passed away at age 63.

Lawford who is the son of the actor Peter Lawford, and Patricia Kennedy, and whose uncles were Ted, Robert and President John F. Kennedy apparently died at a Yoga Studio on Tuesday night during a health emergency according to a report from TMZ.

As of now, it is being reported that Christopher’s death appears to be from “natural causes.” The coroner is performing an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death.

Christopher had battled addiction in his life back in the 70’s and 80’s.  The actor was also a New York Times best selling author with his book, ‘Symptoms of Withdrawal.’

Being the nephew of John F. Kennedy, Lawford also spent time in the political arena with staff positions with The Democratic National Committee, and campaigns whether it be at the national, state, or local level

Lawford’s cousin Kerry Kennedy announced his death on social media.

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica Kane), Lawford’s co-star on All My Children, shared her thoughts on Instagram at his passing: “Such very sad news that wonderful Chris Lawford has passed away. Chris was so great to work with—always prepared and always with a smile and an ease about him. He was warm and charming whether on set at AMC—or working hard for his charity. My deepest sympathy to his family. RIP, Chris”

Over the next several days in New York, some very familiar faces to daytime soap fans are busy filming episodes of a new series entitled Melange, which stars Morgan Fairchild (most recently ex-Angelica, DAYS).

One Life to Live & All My Children Reunion Event Photo Gallery

Over the weekend, actors who appeared on two beloved legacy soap operas: All My Children and One Life to Live took part in a reunion event held over GH Fan Club Weekend.  And while the fans in attendance were excited to see some of their favorites, it was the former cast members themselves getting to see their former co-stars for the first time in years which made the event all the more touching.

Then, in big surprise to the attendees, none other than former One Life to Live star, Nathan Fillion showed up to give hugs to his former castmates including: Erin Torpey (Ex-Jessica), and James (Ex-Max) and Kassie DePaiva (Ex-Blair), among others.  Fillion, who has gone on to primetime success with his show Castle, and his upcoming new series on ABC, The Rookie, has never forgotten his beginnings in show business as Joe Buchanan!  Who can forget his on-screen affair with Robin Strasser’s Dorian, which sent Viki (Erika Slezak) into orbit!

Kassie DePaiva (now Eve on DAYS) told Michael Fairman TV on Fillion’s appearance that she had reached out to him to let him know about the event: “I knew the fans would love it.  He is very proud of his roots.”

When asked about seeing the original Blair, Mia Korf, at the same event whom she had never met, Kassie said, “I went, ‘There’s the real Blair,” but it was really nice meeting her.  You know with One Life to Live actors, even if you didn’t work with somebody there is such a camaraderie, which makes this show so special.”

All My Children fans were thrilled to see appearances by Rebecca Budig (Ex-Greenlee), Vincent Irizarry (Ex-David), Jordi Vilasuso, who will soon be seen in his new role on Y&R, and played Dr, Griffin Castillo in Pine Valley, and many more.

Check out our photo gallery of some of the past cast from both AMC and OLTL who showed up to say “hello again” to each other and the fans below.  Then, let us know if it makes you miss Pine Valley and Llanview all the more in the comment section, and which photo you liked the most!
