When Rex (John-Paul Lavoisier) and Natalie (Melissa Archer) arrive in Kentucky at the Spotted Pony Strip Club later this week, fans may recognize the face of the man tending bar behind the counter. A.C. Weary, the husband of Kim Zimmer, who returned to the role of Echo Di Savoy last October after a nearly thirty year absence from the show, has been cast in the recurring role of Theo, the club's manager. But don't expect husband and wife to be sharing screen time anytime soon, however.
Back in June at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, "One Life to Live" executive producer Frank Valentini alluded to Soap Opera Network that we hadn't seen the last of Farah Fath despite her character, Gigi Morasco, being killed off. In our Twitter posting that night, we stated "according to Frank Valentini, more surprises in store for #OLTL. Have we seen the last of Gigi? Don't believe what you see!" Come August, that's never been more certain!
Brandon Buddy, who left "One Life to Live" in November 2010 shortly after a hacking controversy on Twitter, is now using the social network service again by seeking assistance from fans of Starr (Kristen Alderson) and Cole (Buddy) to get him back on the show.
Cady McClain returned to "All My Children" during the Tuesday, May 17 broadcast of the soap despite filming her first scenes just seven days prior (May 10). So why did the show rapidly insert her scenes into already taped episodes of the soap? "AMC" was canceled of course! During fan club weekend last month, McClain spoke with Soap Opera Network about her return, what the cancellation news meant for cast and crew, the reunion of Tad Martin (Michael E. Knight) and Dixie Cooney (McClain) and even how she got to wear sweats to work while filming scenes of Dixie laying in bed.
