Rumor mill, for what it’s worth…
Sean Monynihan is said to be back at the “OLTL” studios recently, despite the fact that the KAD serial killer storyline will be resolved later this month.
Saoirse Scott may be out as Jamie Vega, given that her onscreen father Kamar de los Reyes has left the soap, and his character Antonio recently mentioned that Llanview was no longer safe for his daughter, and that she was coming with him.
And apparently Jerry verDorn is not a favorite of the higher-ups at ABC Daytime. At least one site is reporting that, while the actor remains on contract with “OLTL,” his episode guarantee has been reduced and that ABC Daytime head Brian Frons is said to have commented that he does not want to see verDorn receiving too much airtime on the show.
“One Life to Live” airs Weekdays on ABC. Weeknights on SOAPnet. Check local listings.
