Smith being the other) not in attendance at the Sleepy Hollow Country Club with the rest of her c0-stars. However, it was pneumonia and not a snub from her new bosses that kept “One Life’s” grand dame from getting her close-up.

And thanks to a recent partnership between The Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History and the National Academy of Televisions Arts & Sciences, things like Tad Martin’s (Michael E. Knight) bright yellow suit — along with many other daytime TV artifacts and memorabilia — just may be appearing alongside those “Wizard Of Oz” slippers!
“General Hospital’s” Amber Tamblyn (ex-Emily Quartermaine) and Lexi Ainsworth (ex-Kristina Corinthos) won the hearts of soap fans during their time in Port Charles, and now the two actresses are set to win over more as characters in new pilots!
Tamblyn, who left her “GH” role back in 2001 and recently wrapped up a season-long arc on “House,” has reportedly signed on as a female lead in CBS’ drama pilot, “Anatomy of Violence,” which also stars Skeet Ulrich (“Scream”).
