(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Saundra Santiago becomes the latest “One Life to Live” seldom used recurring cast member to finally getting some much needed screen time when her onscreen persona, Carlotta Vega, interacts with a familiar face at the family diner, and a few other new and familiar faces pop up in Llanview.

On Thursday, September 8, Carlotta returns when Cristian (David Fumero) seeks a little motherly advice about his future. As we previously reported, Fumero is leaving “One Life” before the show wraps production in November. Santiago taped her scenes on July 14.

In other news, Helmar Augustus Cooper may be returning as Louie, the homeless man who pulled Todd Manning (Roger Howarth) out of the river last month. At the very least, look for the drifter and part-time police informant to be a hot topic of conversation around the LPD water cooler the week of September 5.

Patrick Allen Cole returns as Rodi’s bartender/manager Jeff (now AKA Adam) on Wednesday, September 21.

Nick Choksi (Vimal) has posted on Facebook that “On Thursday’s [September 1] episode of ‘One Life To Live,’ everything seems to be hunky dory in the Patel household, but a secret will lead to a suspicion which will lead to…inevitable mayhem. I also get to square off with the man who cuckolded me…for about a second…which is the most i can handle. ABC @ 2pm.”

Edixon Caridad appears as a Guard in several episodes in mid and later September.

Look for Victor’s secretary at the Sun to continue to appear on screen during the next few weeks.

Barret Helms (Baz) tweets to a fan that the reason he is leaving “One Life to Live” so early is a result of “Baaad timing.”

For those asking about the song playing during Viki and Dorian’s farewell montage during Thursday’s episode was “Moments” by Josh Auer. That was not the first time the song as been used by the show, however, and was heard most recently in this promo from May 12, featuring John and Natalie.

And a walk on role on “One Life to Live” was among the items auctioned off at the Miracle House 11th Annual “Cocktails By the Bay” charity event in Sag Harbor, New York earlier this month. Miracle House “provides temporary housing, meals and advocacy to caregivers and patients coming to the city for critical medical treatment,” according to its website. Click here to learn more.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — “One Life to Live” fans hoping to catch another glimpse of some of their favorite recurring characters before the show wraps production on its TV run in November, can now breath a collective sigh of relief. In the coming weeks, several of Llanview’s “seen, but not heard” characters will be appearing in upcoming episodes.

Ilene Kristen returns as everyone’s favorite drunken hairdresser, Roxy Balsom, on Wednesday, August 17, when she asks Madame Delphina (Lea DeLaria) to help her make contact with Gigi’s (Farah Fath) spirit. But will the ladies succeed in their efforts, or will their actions do more harm than good?

The following week, on Tuesday, August 23, Peter Bartlett is back as Nigel, despite the fact that he was recently relieved of his duties as the Buchanan’s longtime manservant by the family patriarch’s illegitimate son Rex Balsom (John-Paul Lavoisier). This time around, he is tending to a recovering Clint (Jerry verDorn) at Llanfair. Look for Clint to ask a huge favor of his trusty confident on the anniversary of Asa’s death.

Speaking of Asa, look for Clint’s little brother Bo (Robert S. Woods) to pay his respects at his Pa’s grave site that same day, where he runs into Asa’s grieving widow Renee (Patricia Elliott). Check out pictures of Asa and Gigi’s tombstones, along with a few other spoiler images here (the pictures are from two lucky fans’ studio tour with verDorn).

Also next week, Dorian (Robin Strasser) prepares to leave town to launch her Senate campaign, and the Cramers throw a huge farewell party for her. Among those in attendance will be Dorian’s oft mentioned, now mentally stable sister Addie (Pamela Payton-Wright).  Look for Addie to also interact with her ex-husband and brother-in-law David Vickers-Buchanan (Tuc Watkins).

And Saundra Santigo will be returning soon as Buenos Dias Café owner Carlotta Vega. The actress posted on Facebook on July 14 that she “Ran into Whoopi @ the ABC Studios today while shooting some scenes on ‘One Life.’ Like, I literally almost ran into her, and she was so cool. I love people from the Bronx!”
