Spiderman Casts His Web on Llanview

Tuesday, June 28, 2011 2:58 AM EDT
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Is the masked Marvel Comics superhero bringing his "spidey sense" to Llanview to save the town's unsuspecting residents from impending peril? Not really, but a dayplayer in a Spiderman costume will be making an appearance on the show soon, much to delight of a certain Llanview tyke. Matt McGorry posted last month on his website that he had just "Booked a recurring role in 3 episodes on ABC's 'One Life To Live' playing Spiderman." The episodes will air in mid-July when his character is hired to entertain at a child's birthday party. However, an incident that occurs just before he is set to perform, could place several Llanview residents in danger.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — With his on and off screen fiancé Farah Fath (Gigi Morasco) leaving "One Life to Live," fans have begun to speculate on John-Paul Lavoisier's status with the show as well. The actor, however, tries to put the rumors to rest by setting the record straight with Soap Opera Digest. "I think want me to go out with the show. I think I'll be there until the end," Lavoisier tells the magazine, despite recent speculation that he was leaving "One Life" this fall. The actor originated the role of Rex Balsom in 2002. As for Gigi, Fath reveals in the same interview that, despite the fact that her character is about to become plant food after Rex makes a bargain with Clint (Jerry verDorn) to get her heart, that "I can't say that I'm 100% done with the show." Fath echoed those same sentiments earlier this month in an...

ABC Soap Won’t See the ‘Light’

Tuesday, June 28, 2011 1:19 AM EDT
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Despite being a part of one of the most memorable scenes in "One Life to Live" history and topping many fan lists as the actress they would most like to see return to Llanview, veteran actress Judith Light has reportedly turned down not one, but two offers from the show asking her to reprise her breakthrough role of housewife turned prostitute Karen Wolek. Despite often fondly recalling her time on "One Life to Live," Daytime Confidential is reporting that Light recently told the show thanks, but no thanks when they asked her back for one final appearance on the show before it wraps up production in November. She is said to have rejected a similar offer to return as part of "One Life's" 40th anniversary celebration back in 2008. Speculation is that her decision may be partly based on the fact that, after...
While it remains to be seen if his character is really Todd Manning or an imposter, after nearly a decade in Llanview, Trevor St. John announces on his official blog that he is leaving the show later this summer, stating that "One Life to Live" has chosen not to renew his contract as the show prepares to wind down production this fall.
