Tuesday, March 29, 2011 3:07 PM EDT
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- Fans of Llanview's favorite new Indian delights Rama (Shenaz Treasuryvala) and Vimal Patal (Nck Choksi) can take comfort in the fact that "One Life to Live" does not appear ready to write them off in the sunset...at least not yet anyway. In the coming weeks look for more drama for the couple as they remain separated from one another. Look for Rama to be inadvertently linked to another man. Vimal, meanwhile, returns on Monday, April 11, when he becomes suspicious of someone he encounters as he awaits a visit from his beloved. The ripples from this chance meeting will result in major consequences for many aching hearts in Llanview.  As we wait for the drama to play out on screen, here's a look back at how both actors ended up in Llanview. Since making their daytime debut several months ago, Treasuryvala and Choski have been embraced by many...

Then on Monday, April 18, Phyllis drops her biggest Buchanan bombshell yet. While we can't spill the beans, we can tell you that you do...

With the problem reaching near epidemic proportions, one daytime drama is leading the push to help draw attention to the issue. Recently, the long-running serial "One Life to Live" consulted with STOMP Out Bullying and Love Our Children USA to pen a storyline in which a major character on the show, Shane Morasco (Austin Williams), was tormented by a classmate, Jack Manning (Andrew Trischitta) and Jack's friends, in large part for no other reason than the simple fact that he suffers from asthma. However, while the storyline has yet to reach its climax, it is certainly taking on a more life-threatening tone - Jack swiped Shane's inhaler and walked away from him in the school gym just as Shane began to suffer a severe asthma attack - it will...
