(SoapOperaNetwork.com) – The latest “One Life to Live” comings and goings.

Austin Williams is back on Wednesday, November 24th when Shane begins to bond with his new Granny Echo. But don’t expect Rex’s mum to be quite so friendly to Gigi, however.

Rumor has it that Christmas holiday will mean a few more appearances for Todd’s sons Jack (Carmen LoPorto) and Sam (Jacob & Luke Clodfelter).

Terri Colombino‘s new “OLTL” character Aubrey now has a last name — Wentworth. Look for Aubrey, who is Joey Buchanan’s latest squeeze, to first air on Monday, November 29th.

Terrell Tilford‘s (Greg Evans) days in Llanview are nearly up. Tilford, who joined “OLTL” in 2008 and ran in the New York City Marathon last weekend, mentions on his Facebook page that is last airdate will either be Tuesday, November 16th or Wednesday, November 17th.

Have viewers seen the last of Meghann Fahy as Hannah O’Conner?  It would appear that way, but you can never say never when it comes to “One Life to Live.”

Looks like another medical drama may be in the works for the residents of Llanview. Mellini Kantayya, who plays one of “OLTL’s” recurring dayplayer Nurses, has been back on the “One Life” set taping more scenes recently. The actress tells Soaps.com that “I’m always excited to return to my nursing duties at Llanview Hospital. No spoilers here, but the Llanview Hospital set always means exciting episodes are around bend!”

Richard Chew will play “Lab Tech #3″ on Friday, November 15th. According to IMDb.com, that particular episode was directed by Zeta Fuentes, Mary Ryan, and “OLTL” Executive Producer Frank Valentini, and was produced by John Tumino.

Andrea Bordeaux posted on her blog on October 27th that she “had an audition for a recurring role on ‘One Life to Live.’ It was rescheduled for November 2nd.” No further information is available at this time.

John Wesley Shipp (Eddie Ford) wrote (among other things) on his Facebook page Wednesday (November 10th) that “Pleased with today. We all settled in a notch from Monday. Delirious about the reactions I’m getting. So cool. Gnite. (I think next week Dad gets a hooker! far out).”

David A. Gregory (Ford) has listed his airdates for the remainder of the month of November. They include the 11th, 12th, 15th, 19th, 22nd, 24th, 29th, and 30th.

Nick Coleman taped more scenes as the dayplayer cop “Officer Coleman” in late September.

Look for more dayplayer roles in upcoming episodes.

“One Life to Live” has released three new audition scripts. The first is for the role of “Michelle.” The scene opens with Michelle telling “Rich” that she bumped into “Alex” and “Lilly.” Rich tells her that he wasn’t aware the three of them even knew one other. Michelle says that they are in her English Literature class, but she never officially meet them until now. She then asks Rich how “Dean” is doing, to which he responds that he isn’t sure, due to the fact that everyone has been banished from the courtroom. Michelle thinks it is wrong, since he and Rich are family after all. However, Rich retorts that they can’t fight a court order. Trying to break the tension, Michelle tells Rich that she has to turn the names in the next day of those planning to attend her sorority’s Valentine’s Day dance. She reminds him that she is on the planning committee for the dance, and asks him if he wants to go with her. Rich replies that he would enjoy escorting her to the party. As the scene ends, Michelle assures him that they will have a great time, and that she has a committee meeting to get to but that she will talk to him again later.

The second script for the role of “Mick.” The scene opens with “Kit” jumping on an exercise bike at the gym that Mick claims is the one he always uses to work out on. Mick orders her to get off of “his machine” and go play on one of the girls’ exercise bikes. “Alex” walks over and points out that Kit was there first. Mick gets angry, and Kit tells Alex thanks, but that she doesn’t need his help. Mick tells him to beat it. Kit explains that she can take care of herself just fine, and that Alex thinks just because he’s a boxer, that he has to be her protector. Confused, Mick asks Alex if he is really a boxer, to which Alex responds yes and proceeds to punch him in the jaw. Mick asks him what the hell is problem is, to which Alex apologizes. Kit then examines Mick and says that it looks like his jaw may be broken and that he should go to the hospital to have it checked out. She then goes on to say that she could get him a hefty six figure check for that. Alex speaks up and says that he doesn’t have that kind of money, however Kit says that the gym would have to pay half of the costs. Mick says it sounds like a good idea to him, despite Alex’s protests. Kit reminds Alex that she can do whatever she wants since she is a personal injury attorney after all. Mick calls her an ambulance chaser and that she is his kind of woman. Kit asks him if he just say what she thought he said. Mick responds that yes, he did call her an ambulance chaser and asks what she is going to do about it. As the scene ends, Kit punches Mick in the jaw as well.

The final script is for “Nurse #1.” The scene opens with “Sara Stein” telling the Nurse that she needs to find “John” for her. Trying to calm her down, she tells her to try and relax and that the attending doctor will be in momentarily. However, Sara pleads with the Nurse to help her, claiming that someone is trying to steal her baby and asks if she has any children of her own. The Nurse responds that she has a son. Sara asks her how she would feel if someone stole him from her and tried to pass him off as their own child. The Nurse again asks Sara to calm down or else she will have to be sedated. Nonetheless, Sara continues to claim that they’re trying to steal her baby. The Nurse says sorry to hear that but that she will have to stop pushing her. As the scene ends, Sara says she had to because she wouldn’t let her tell about the baby. The Nurse asks Sara one more time to calm down.

Remember that “One Life to Live” frequently changes character names in audition scripts to try and throw off viewers.

From the Twitter files…

Kristen Alderson (Starr) tweeted on Tuesday that she had “EARLY EARLY wake-up time! Shooting something for SOAPnet all day! Pretty excited about it. Such a fun/long day of shooting for SOAPnet. Can’t wait to see the final product.” She also posted this picture of herself and her teenage co-stars during rehearsal for “OLTL” on Monday (Nov. 8th). And on November 4th she wrote that she had a “13 hour day of work today & had an 11 hour day yesterday….lol tomorrow brings a whole new meaning to TGIF. JK I seriously love my job!

Kassie DePaiva (Blair) writes that “Kristen was so good today [Nov. 10th] on the show. I will miss Starr and Cole.”

And Melissa Archer (Natalie) commented on Nov. 6th that she was “Having an awesome time staying up all nite at Walgreens shoot!!”

    King tells the media outlet “We’re creating this together.  It was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up on. When I was originally hired (for ‘GH’), it was for a short period of time. I had every attention of going back to primetime. But during that time, I really enjoyed myself with the role – a lot more than I thought.”

    In addition to his work on “GH,” King has also appeared in “Another World,” “Loving,” “The City,” “Charmed,” “Fraiser,” “Sex & the City,” and “Prison Break.”

      (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — In what may be the biggest ABC Daytime move since “General Hospital” lured film star James Franco to Port Charles, E! Online is reporting that famous socialite Kourtney Kardashian will soon be making her acting debut on “One Life to Live.”

      Kardashian is best known for her role in the E! reality series “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and its spin-off “Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami.” Although it is unclear exactly what character she will play, the eldest of the Kardashian siblings informed E! that she will not be playing herself.

      The heiress went on to say that “I grew up watching ‘One Life to Live.’ I hear I get into some trouble and I am looking forward to it. This may be my acting debut but the Kardashians know a thing or two about drama.”

      Look for Kardashian to interact with some familiar faces in Llanview, including Cristian Vega (David Fumero) and Blair Cramer (Kassie DePaiva), who has posted on her Twitter page that “I think this will be great for ‘OLTL.’ I’m looking forward to tomorrow.  I’ll let you know how it goes.” 

      She will tape her scenes tomorrow (November 11th), which are scheduled to air in an episode sometime in March.  Expect her character to make a “very dramatic entrance alongside Cristian.”

      In addition, E! reports that their cameras will be on set taping all the action for a future episode of their latest spin-off  “Kourtney and Khloé Take New York.”
