(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Following weeks of speculation as to the identity of the woman cast by “One Life to Live” in the role of Ionia, who portrays Dorian Lord (Robin Strasser) in David Vickers Buchanan’s (Tuc Watkins) biopic “Vicker Man,” we finally learn the name of the actress cast in the recurring role. According to Soap Opera Digest Kate Hodge, best known for her breakout role of Michelle in 1990 slasher film “Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III,” has been tapped by “OLTL” to play the aspiring actress, whose primary job is to make lives miserable for the newlyweds.
