Four individuals connected by blood, friendship, sex, and love are dragged into the classic battle between good versus evil. No that's not the description for an arc on ABC's "General Hospital" or CBS' "The Young and the Restless," but the online drama "Pride: The Series," which features "GH's" <strong>Ilene Kristen</strong> (Delia Ryan) and "As The World Turns'" actress <strong>Lauren B. Martin</strong> (ex-Camille Bennett) as special guest stars. Recently, the series became an <a href="http://miamiwebfest.com" target="_blank">official selection</a> of Miami Web Fest, a 10-day festival that showcases the hottest new web series around the world. The festival begins <strong>Friday, September 25</strong> and culminates on <strong>Sunday, October 4</strong> with the Miami Web TV Awards.
If it's even possible to imagine, after several years performing on soaps, on screen and on the stage, actress <strong>Ilene Kristen</strong> ("General Hospital," "One Life to Live," "Ryan's Hope") has only just recently released her debut album.
The Casting Society of America (CSA) hosted the 30th Annual Artios Awards last night in ceremonies taking place simultaneously in New York and Los Angeles. "General Hospital's" <strong>Mark Teschner</strong> took home the casting award for Daytime Drama Series. He beat out "Days of our Lives" casting director <strong>Marnie Saitta</strong>, and associate <strong>Bob Lambert</strong>, and "The Young and the Restless" casting director <strong>Judy Blye Wilson</strong>, and associate <strong>Greg Salmon</strong>.
It’s been rumored to be the most exciting, dark and thrilling season of “American Horror Story” yet, and “Freak Show” is making its grand debut tonight!
Last week "General Hospital" executive producer Frank Valentini revealed that there will be plenty of villains hanging around the denizens of Port Charles this fall and he wasn't kidding. While a show rep issued a "no comment" when contacted by Soap Opera Network, actress Robin Mattson announced on her Facebook page yesterday that she is returning to the daytime soap as Heather Webber in the near future. "Heather is returning to GH soon!" read Mattson's Facebook posting. Fans last saw Heather in February, when she was carted off to jail.
As first reported by Soap Opera Digest, Ilene Kristen (ex-Roxy Balsom, "One Life to Live") will again be reprising her "Ryan's Hope" role of Delia Ryan on ABC's "General Hospital."
From re-runs of soap classics "Dallas," "Dynasty," "Another World," "Port Charles," and "Falcon Crest," to the launches of original series "SoapCenter," "Soap Talk" and "General Hospital: Night Shift," SOAPnet was defined as the "new way to watch soaps" for much of its near 14-year run. With just 2 days left before SOAPnet is no more, we thought it would be a great opportunity to look back at the inaugural year of a network that gave diehard soap fans their own platform to shout with glee through the death of a network that outlived its purpose.
Held Monday, November 18 at the Beverly Hilton in LA and at the XL Nightclub, Cabaret & Lounge in NYC, "The Casting Society of America's 29th Annual Artios Awards" honored the best of the best in casting and "The Young and the Restless'" Judy Blye Wilson took home her twelfth Artios Award in the process.
As previously reported, Ilene Kristen is returning to daytime television courtesy of ABC's "General Hospital" - the actress debuts today. While ABC wouldn't necessarily confirm which character Kristen would be playing - Delia Reid from "Ryan's Hope" or even Roxy Balsom on "One Life to Live" - when pressed for comment by Soap Opera Network on Friday, "GH" head writer, Ron Carlivati, spilled the beans over the weekend via Twitter.
If you happened to be tuning into today's episode of ABC's "General Hospital," and stayed long enough for the end credits, you may have noticed a familiar face interacting with Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and Silas Clay (Michael Easton). "One Life to Live" and "Ryan's Hope" fan favorite Ilene Kristen was seen serving coffee to the pair in what appears to be Kelly's diner in the previews for the next episode of the drama series - airing Monday, October 28.
When Rex (John-Paul Lavoisier) and Natalie (Melissa Archer) arrive in Kentucky at the Spotted Pony Strip Club later this week, fans may recognize the face of the man tending bar behind the counter. A.C. Weary, the husband of Kim Zimmer, who returned to the role of Echo Di Savoy last October after a nearly thirty year absence from the show, has been cast in the recurring role of Theo, the club's manager. But don't expect husband and wife to be sharing screen time anytime soon, however.
After a number of years being relegated to the 11:00 PM time slot (outside of the primetime hours of 8:00 to 11:00 PM), SOAPnet's same day re-airings of NBC's "Days of our Lives" are about to replace ABC's canceled "All My Children" in the 8:00 PM ET/PT slot after the latter soap goes off the air on Friday, September 23.
