One Life to Live's Kassie DePaiva on Upcoming General Hospital Stint: "Once The Mannings Come to Town Anything is Possible"By Jamey Giddens on January 16, 2012
One Life to Live vet Kassie DePaiva has taken to her blog to set the record straight about her upcoming stint as Blair Cramer on sister sudser General Hospital.
Now...on the General Hospital...Yippie. I must say the ads and press release by ABC is a little misleading and I feel I need to clarify to all my friends, family and fans that are emailing and calling wondering when I'm moving to Los Angeles. Frank Valentini, GH's EP, asked me to come out for a couple of shows in February and I'm thrilled. Not only will I get to work with a fantastic cast...but a little piece of OLTL will live on. That makes me very happy. And who knows where it will lead. Once the Mannings come to town anything is possible."
Will One Life To Live showrunner Frank Valentini and head writer Ron Carlivati bring a few actors along with them to General Hospital, once they take over? ABC Soaps In Depth is reporting there is a possibility both Michael Easton and Ted King may head to GH. According to the magazine's site, Easton will reprise his role as super cop John McBain. There is no word on who King would play.
A GH spokesperson has told the magazine they don't comment on rumors. However, the magazine is reporting Easton and King may arrive in Port Charles in late Jan.
It appears Garin Wolf is a bit luckier than his former boss Jill Farren Phelps. According to ABC Soaps In Depth, Wolf and Shelly Altman will be sticking around at General Hospital, they just won't be serving as co-head writers now that Ron Carlivati is in town. According to the magazine's Twitter page:
The latest from #GH: Wolf and Altman WILL remain with the show, just not in the headwriter slot.
JUST TOLD but NOT told it wuz SECRET: Ron CARLIVATI to #GH as script writer-hopes 2 b co-head writer? Yo,I'm taking heat for leaving early?
