Judith Light (Judith Ryland, “Dallas;” ex-Karen Wolek, “One Life to Live”) is probably best known for her onscreen comedic entanglement with Tony Danza on “Who’s the Boss?,” and her next project is set to be just as funny — but with an unconventional twist!
Two years ago today the final television broadcast of "One Life to Live" aired on ABC. While the show would go on to have an additional forty episodes in 2013 via Prospect Park's The OnLine Network, this day marks the end of a 43 year run on ABC.
TNT has announced that the third season of "Dallas" will kick off on Monday, February 24, which will be the first season without actor Larry Hagman and his iconic character J.R. Ewing. Hagman died just before season two premiered, and as a result the show was forced to kill off the character as well. In season three, Patrick Duffy's Bobby Ewing is now the senior member of the Ewing family following the death of his older brother. John Ross (Josh Henderson) is out to prove he can be just as powerful an ally or enemy as his infamous father. Meanwhile, Bobby's adopted son Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe) is newly single and determined to make a name for himself and his family in the world of natural gas. John Ross and Christopher’s former girlfriend, Elena Ramos (Jordana Brewster), is now blinded by thoughts of justice for previous wrongs.
"I don't expect to get it. They usually don't give it to you two years in a row. So for me the real thing is to have been nominated and to have been acknowledged in this way, which is really an acknowledgment of this extraordinary play by Richard Greenberg. This brilliant direction by Lynne Medow and this cast, which is my heart... I'm so appreciative, I really am," said Judith Light (ex-Karen Wolek, "One Life to Live") on the red carpet of the 2013 Tony Awards just moments before taking home her second Tony on Sunday, June 9. The actress won for Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Play for her work as Faye in "The Assembled Parties." The play also stars Jake Silbermann (ex-Noah Mayer, "As The World Turns") playing the dual role of Scotty/Tim.
After scheduling conflicts reportedly kept her from reprising her signature role of housewife turned hooker Karen Wolek on "One Life to Live" in show's final months on the air, Judith Light is finally coming back to Llanview...sort of. On Friday, January 13, just three hours before the final "One Life" episode airs, Light will set down on "The View" with several of her former co-stars to recall some of her fondest memories of the soap she called home from 1977-1983.
