Melissa Archer Previews "Major Moment" for OLTL's John and Natalie
One Life to Live star Melissa Archer chatted with On Air On Soaps' Michael Fairman about what exciting things her alter ego Natalie will be facing this month and sheds some light on John Brotherton's (ex- Jared) return.
MICHAEL: Once the car accident happens, can we expect a big moment between Natalie and John? That is what we have heard and long time fans have been begging for. But it seems that Natalie gets very close in proximity to John, and in her delirium thinks she is kissing Jared?
MELISSA: We can say that there is a major moment the week of February 8th for anyone who ever loved John and Natalie. It’s totally unexpected. Yes, she thinks she is kissing Jared. She does not realize what she is doing in the midst of it, but at some point she does.
Archer also dishes about the upcoming triangle of Marty/John/Natalie.
MICHAEL: It will be interesting to see how this plays out; when John and Natalie reconnect and Marty is on the outside for a minute.
MELISSA: I think that is why I like this triangle as well. I feel Susan Haskell brings a lot to Marty, not only the way she plays it, but how it is written for her. I think it just aired recently, where Natalie went to therapy with Marty, and it was interesting. Susan really played the part of being the therapist trying to help this person, but also the moments where we see what Marty may have actually been thinking. I saw the show where Marty was talking to her therapist. The therapist was saying to her, “Well, maybe it’s because she was talking about your boyfriend.” And I liked the way she played it because, again, it wasn’t a person recognizing that they feel threatened. Now, it brings a cool dynamic between these two women in that they are trying to be adult about this. But, they are really feeling something else. Then eventually, the question becomes, “How long are you not going to be an adult about it?
