(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Miss New York Teen USA 2009 and former “All My Children” cast member Taylor Gildersleeve, joins the cast of “One Life to Live.”

The 18-year-old actress, who portrayed Sydney Harris on “AMC” in 2006, tweeted yesterday afternoon (January 19th) that she had just “just booked a role on ‘One Life to Live!!!’ :D

The exact role in which Gildersleeve was cast cannot be confirmed at this time, however, one possibility is “Hannah,” who is expected to interact with Starr and Cole.  A casting call for that role was issued back in mid-December.  Other possibilities could be “Leah,” a stripper friend of Stacy and Kim’s, or “Teen Jessica,” who will be appearing in flashback scenes.  Gildersleeve appears to have beaten out fellow actress Samii Ryan, who revealed earlier this month that she recently auditioned for an unidentified role on “One Life” as well, and was awaiting a callback from the soap.

In addition to winning the Miss New York Teen USA 2009 title, Gildersleeve competed in Miss Teen USA Pageant, but failed to make the finals.  A student at New York University, she has also appeared in an episode of “30 Rock.” 

SON will continue to follow this story and bring you more details as they develop.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Barbara Garrick spotted outside the “One Life” studios in New York.

Garrick, who is best known for her realistic portrayal of nutjob Allison Perkins, was photographed on Monday (January 18th) with co-star Melissa Archer (Natalie Banks) by Steven Bergman, who routinely snaps images of the “OLTL” cast and crew as they enter and exit the show’s studios.

Rumors have persisted in recent months that the actress was reprising her signature role, despite the fact that representatives for “One Life” have had no comment on the speculation.

When viewers last saw Allison, she had lapsed into a coma after suffering a fall, but not before teasing that she knew a huge secret involving Jessica Brennan (Bree Williamson).

SON will continue to follow this story and bring you more details as they develop.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Natalie Banks once again has visions of the dead.

When John McBain is arrested by Police Commissioner Lowell’s inept men in blue for allowing Brody to flee the scene of the crime after attacking Mitch (so he could attempt to rescue his beloved Jessica from certain doom), Natalie is frantic as the former cult leader continues to terrorize her family and friends.

However, she refuses to simply set back and allow her former lover take the rap. Instead, she catches John off guard by driving the getaway car when Brody comes to bust the him out of jail. But their run of good luck comes to an abrupt end when their car is inadvertently forced off the road by two other vehicles, one of which is being driven by someone with murderous intentions.

With their car stuck in a ravine, Natalie finds herself in grave danger. Trapped in the driver’s seat, she soon begins to lose touch with reality, and envisions herself kissing her recently deceased husband Jared. Meanwhile, John works to free his old flame, while Brody takes off in search of Jessica and Mitch.

But will viewers really Jared’s spirit again, or will it all be nothing more than a figment of Natalie’s imagination as John pulls her from the car?  If so, it would be the latest in a serious of ghostly visits from John Brotherton, who was fired last fall by “One Life to Live” after just over two years with the soap. Either way, look for the scenes to air on Monday, February 8th.
