‘OLTL’ Casting Call: Paging Nurse Judy
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — “One Life to Live” issues a new audition script for the minor role of a nurse, and other casting insights and tidbits for the month of July and beyond.
The scene opens with Tom telling “Nurse Judy” he he is aware of his rights, and that the hospital can’t force a patient to stay under their care. She agrees, but states that if he leaves now, it could seriously hamper his recovery. However, Tom insists that he has pressing issues to attend to that are need to be taken care of in a timely manner, and that he feels perfectly fine. Nurse Judy tells him it is because he has been getting plenty of bed rest and following his doctor’s orders, but that if he leaves, he could suffer a fatal hemorrhage. Tom demands a second opinion on his condition. She reminds him that there is no one else at the hospital who can examine him at the moment, and that “Dr. Lawless” is the top professional in his field. As the scene ends, Tom becomes even more upset, saying that the doctor cannot be located, and that if is medical issue were really so severe, he would be in to check on him already. In response, Nurse Judy states that she is sure the doctor will be making his rounds shortly. Remember that the show frequently changes names in these auditions scripts to throw off viewers.
