(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Visions of dead people, familiar faces, and departing characters usher in the month of March in Llanview.
Although her character isn’t even dead yet (at least not until February 16th), Crystal Hunt makes an otherworldly return to “One Life to Live” in the coming weeks. On Wednesday, March 3rd, the deceased pole dancer comes to her sister Gigi in a vision to ask her to be a surrogate mother to little Sierra Rose.
According to Soap Opera Digest, Roscoe Born has already taped his final scenes as Mitch Laurence. The actor tells SOD that “I finally got to have some scenes with ‘Roxy’ [Ilene Kristen] and they went really well. It was a good last few days.” A final airdate for Born has not been announced.
Viewers have seen the last of Nurse Gayle Charles (Karen Christie-Ward), who was shot in the back by Officer Oliver Fish on February 9th.
“One Life to Live” has released more information on the recent casting call for the role of “Glenn.” The show is seeking a white male between the ages of 18 & 22 for the role which is described as “a handsome heartthrob at the top of his class, sexy and charismatic, as well as a star athlete.” The soap posted the casting call on the website Newfaces.com on February 11th, and listed March 11th as the deadline to audition for the new contract role. SON recently told you that Roy Phillips was among the actors who have auditioned for the role, which may have also included Eric Nelsen, who tweeted on January 26th that he had just tried out for a role on the soap.

Dan Gauthier is back as Kevin Buchanan beginning Wednesday, March 3rd when he and Clint discuss one another’s love lives. The following day, he has a proposition for Kelly.
When Rev. Andrew Carpenter (Robert Krimmer) pays Dorian a somber visit at La Boulaie on Friday, February 26th, he won’t come alone. Accompanying him will be his ex-wife (and Dorian’s daughter) Cassie (Laura Bonarrigo, who first airs February 15th). Look for the pair to break some devastating news to Dorian concerning the death of one of her “girls,” which the head of the Cramer clan deems suspicious.
Although the name of the person cast in the role has not been revealed, viewers can expect the new Llanview High Principal to debut on Thursday, March 4th, when Todd and Téa are summoned to the school to discuss their daughter’s classroom antics. A casting call for the recurring role was released in early January.
Stephanie Garcia airs as a Buenos Dias Waitress on Friday, March 12th.
And Paul Desiderio tweeted Tika Sumpter (Layla) on Wednesday, February 10th that “I met with Tori [Visgilio, ‘OLTL’ Associate Casting Director] and I’m praying I get a u/5 [under 5].”
