On Wednesday, March 20, Alex Kruglov, Head of Content Acquisition, Hulu, visited the set of the internet hub’s recent acquisition of TOLN’s “One Life to Live.” In a posting on Twitter, Kruglov said, “Holy cow everything looks impressive. Excited to launch it and
#AMC on 4/29.” The tweet was accompanied by a behind the scenes photo that shows actress Florencia Lozano in a scene as Tea Delgado in a beautiful new set presumed to be her characters newly re-designed digs. It was previously feared by many fans that both “OLTL” and “All My Children” would go the route of Peapack, NJ as “Guiding Light” did in its latter years in order to save on production costs.
Soap star and theatre regular, Robert Newman, addressed fan inquiries on Facebook earlier today over his possible involvement in either “All My Children” or “One Life to Live,” which are essentially filming in his backyard of Stamford, CT. The inquiries were from fans of the cancelled Proctor & Gamble produced soap “Guiding Light,” which Newman starred off and on for nearly 30 years as Joshua Lewis.
“I do have some interest, but my guess is that, at least at first, they will only be tapping into the incredible talent that have put in their time already on both shows,” Newman said. He added, “Wouldn’t be much of a reunion if you recast any characters or added new ones. But down the road, who knows? They both are stocked with several actors I have great respect for and would love working with. We’ll see.”
On Tuesday, March 12, during the east coast broadcast of ABC’s “General Hospital“” (2:00 – 3:00 PM ET/11:00 AM – 12:00 PM PT), fans of Kelly Sullivan (Kate Howard/Connie Falconeri) will be able to tweet live with the soap star as she discusses her characters. Yes, her characters!
In the episode, Connie Falconeri is releasing her first novel titled “Love in Maine,” which is in actuality a corporate tie-in with Disney/ABC Television Group’s Hyperpion Books, and the site of the launch event turns into a scandal when Molly Lansing-Davis (Haley Pullos) and TJ (Tequan Richmond) show up with Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) and Shawn (Sean Blakemore) to assert their claim that Connie didn’t write the book – Molly did. Will Kate back them up? Meanwhile, Sonny has a hunch that Connie has reemerged and goes in search of her. Who will he find when he finally tracks her down? It is a book launch party that cannot be missed!
On Friday, March 1, during the east coast broadcast of ABC’s “General Hospital”” (2:00 – 3:00 PM ET/11:00 AM – 12:00 PM PT), fans of Jack Wagner (Frisco Jones) will be able to chat live with the soap star as he discusses his characters quest to win the heart of ex-wife Felicia (Kristina Wagner).

Actor Daniel Covin has been cast in the recurring role of Hunter on TOLN’s “All My Children.” News of Covin’s signing came about after the actor tweeted, “Hyped to let you know I just booked the role of Hunter on the all new #AllMyChildren!” The actor added, “I start filming on Thursday!”
In a recent audition script, Hunter is described by “Charlotte” (now known as Miranda Montgomery) as being the Romeo of Pine Valley High School when it comes to the ladies. “You know, most girls would’ve jumped at the chance to be with me no matter who else was there.” Miranda’s response was, “I’m not most girls.”
PREVIOUS: With news that Eden Riegel would be reprising her role of Bianca Montgomery on TOLN’s “All My Children,” for what Deadline calls a “cameo guest arc,” the actress has taken to Twitter to thank fans for their kind words and to welcome her “daughter” to the show.
“Thank you all for the outpouring of support today. I am thrilled to be returning as Bianca!” said Riegel. She later added, “So I guess I better follow my… ahem… daughter: @JordanLanePrice Gabby, you’re still to young for twitter. I hope.”
Both the “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” official Facebook pages are seeking questions from fans to ask Agnes Nixon, creator of both legendary soap operas.

It is understood that 10 questions will be sent over for “AMC” and another 10 for “OLTL.”
On Thursday, February 21, during the east coast broadcast of ABC’s “General Hospital” (2:00 – 3:00 PM ET/11:00 AM – 12:00 PM PT) fans of Lynn Herring (Lucy Coe) will be able to chat live with the soap star as she discusses her characters crazy antics in an episode that finds Lucy being transferred to Ferncliff, while Molly (Haley Pullos) comes in with recent pictures of Sam (Kelly Moaco), which she hopes will help the police find Sam and her baby.
