Details on Erin Torpey’s Return to Llanview
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — As we previously reported, after nearly a decade since departing “One Life to Live,” Erin Torpey is returning to the fictional town of Llanview to shake things up with one of her former characters childhood lovers.
On Thursday, September 8, Torpey, who is best known for her portrayal of Jessica Buchanan (now played by Bree Williamson) from 1990-2003 , has a life-changing encounter with one of Jessica’s old flames that will forever alter that person’s life. Unfortunately, however, don’t expect the actress to interact with her former onscreen mom Erika Slezak (Victoria Lord) this time around. Torpey last returned to “One Life” in honor of the show’s 40th anniversary as the adult spirit of Jessica’s stillborn daughter Megan, who escorted Viki to heaven back in 2008.
“I grew up on ‘OLTL,’ and I am happy to make one last cameo as the show prepares to end its run. ‘OLTL’ was a second family to me, and it will always hold a very special place in my life,” she noted in a statement last month. Torpey taped her scenes on June 29.
