Hutchison Brings Gabrielle Back to Llanview

ABC

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Add another name to the list of the caravan of returning stars to “One Life to Live.” Fiona Hutchison shocked fans this week by announcing the soap has asked her to reprise her signature role of Gabrielle Medina.

In a lengthy statement on her official Facebook page, Hutchison details her upcoming return to Llanview, stating:

Brace yourselves, I have some wonderful news to share with all of you. I am returning to ‘One Life to Live’ as Gabrielle. I have two shooting dates. Keep in mind, these are not air dates, but shooting dates. The first shoot date is Tuesday, October 25th; the second shoot date is Tuesday November 15th. If you happen to be in New York City {DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT PUT YOURSELF OUT AND FLY IN, I’M SERIOUS!} please, by all means, feel free to stop by the ABC Studios and chat. Obviously, for fire safety reasons as well as security reasons, I cannot bring any of you into the studio. But I do take breaks and I will be sure to slip away as much as I can to come out and ‘hang’ with my ‘posse.’ I Have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA what they have in store for Gabrielle. She is dead but with daytime, who knows? I swear I would tell ALL of you if I knew what was going to happen. I have no script as of yet.

She goes on to add “Also, feel free to contact the people at Prospect Park as well as my dear friend Executive Producer Frank Valenti(ni) if you’d like to see me on the web version of ‘OLTL.’ I’m not certain what the plans are or if the final deal has been sealed… but I WILL BE heading to Los Angeles to shoot a role on the web series, ‘The BAY!’ Gregori Martin is ‘visionary’ and I could not be surrounded by a more down to earth, brilliantly talented cast! I cannot wait to start!!!!!!”

Hutchison played Gabrielle from 1987-91 and again from 2001-2004 when the character was killed off in a bathroom by Music Box Killer Dr. Stephen Haver (Matthew Ashford). A first airdate has not been announced.
