HomeTagsComings & GoingsIs Amanda Setton Returning to One Life to Live? Luke Kerr June 22, 2011 50 Comments Could Amanda Setton be returning to One Life to Live as Kimberly Andrews Buchanan? According to a tweet from OLTL makeup artist Julia Davis, it may be happening. Just finished getting @amandasetton into character for One life to live. Love her features. 50 Responses alstonboy4315 June 22, 2011 Why bother bringing back such an irrelevant character when they only have SIX months to tie up loose ends and finish this show off STRONG? I enjoyed Amanda Setton in the role, but really…….why??????? It’s time for OLTL to get their priorities in order, casting-wise, and start getting rid of all the dead weight. Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott June 22, 2011 Amen! AMC has already gotten their shopping list going of people returning. When will OLTL start theirs? And sweetie pie David Vickers doesn’t apply cuz Tuc always pops in and out. Log in to Reply Marland Fan June 22, 2011 Why would they bring back this actress after she snubbed her nose at them? For a while it looked like they were trying to mold Rama into the new Kimberly. Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott June 22, 2011 Alston I would love to but I can’t only because I am on my Droid right now which I haven’t had for very long and I can’t cut and paste on this little fucker yet. So if you go on YouTube search: guiding light: Alex talks to Eric and Lillian about Nick. Beverlee is wearing a red dress with a red scarf pulled down around her neck. She really breaks Eric’s balls before Lillian shows up. But the fucking BEST happens at 6:35!! You’ll see. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 June 22, 2011 Ryan Scott, Can you be a sweetheart and send me that link to the scene you were talking about in the other thread between Beverlee McKinsey and Tina Sloan (Lillian!) that you said you watch every week? I’d love to see it. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 June 22, 2011 Okay, Thanks. Log in to Reply DynamiteKiddo June 22, 2011 I was one of the ardent fans of the Sky/Gigi/Rex/Stace/Oliver/Kyle/Kim group, but these are characters (save for Rex, I guess . . .) that aren’t necessarily needed come finale time. It’s unfathomable to me that we might gain Kim for the finale when we know DORIAN, Kelly, Joey, and Cris are all leaving early, four characters who absolutely, no matter what, should be part of OLTL’s ending. Log in to Reply appleridge June 22, 2011 I think Kim will be short visit for like David & Clint. Maybe finally learn the secret that took her out of Llanview Log in to Reply AlistairCrane June 22, 2011 I don’t think she is necessary, nor do I think she’ll be on the show for any more than a handful of episodes, but I am looking forward to discovering the secret that drove Kim out of Llanview. That being said, if this is the type of character OLTL is going to bring back for their last months, then shoot me now!!! Log in to Reply JAQ June 22, 2011 [quote=Marland Fan]Why would they bring back this actress after she snubbed her nose at them? [/quote] My thoughts exactly!! She couldn’t leave this show fast enough. BTW has anyone seen her on primetime?? When OLTL promised to bring back characters from the past before it ended, I guess I just assumed they were talking possibly Dr Wolek, Karen Wolek, Aunt Wanda. Herb Calliston. I will say, the short time she played Kimmie I did like her. Log in to Reply J Bernard Jones June 22, 2011 One Life to Live has SEVEN months to go (five-six in terms of taping). Plenty of time to “bring back” characters (a new post-cancellation practice I roll my eyes at all the time). Time to tell quite a few stories. It’s not going off the air in 2 weeks, you know. Log in to Reply Bourgeois Nerd June 22, 2011 We’re not going to be getting the “characters from the past” like any Woleks or Tina or such until the fall. AMC had to announce all it’s returns because it will be gone in September. OLTL will probably have a fairly “typical” summer, and then go down Memory Lane/Victory Lap in the fall. Log in to Reply Daniel St. John June 22, 2011 I liked Kim and really adored the Kim/Clint coupling but I am not all that eager to see her return now that the show is ending. These last few months should be used to redeem Clint a bit more and get him and Viki back together as far as I’m concerned. And I loved those scenes between Alexandra and Eric especially the slap. As much of a fan of Marj Dusay I am and how much I enjoyed her for the most part as Alexandra, I can’t help but wonder how different some of the storylines for the character may have gone if Beverlee had continued playing the role. Dusay always struck me as the “show must go on” trooper type of actress who would gamely play anything thrown her way no matter how preposterous while Bev was more of a fighter for the integrity of the character she played and would have opposed some of the out of character crap GL had Alexandra doing. Log in to Reply AlistairCrane June 22, 2011 I don’t really trust OLTL to bring back any old faves. After what they did to Marty, and with their current storylines and their focus on the Fords and newbies, I just don’t have any faith in this regime. I think the only “get” will be Andrea Evans as Tina. Log in to Reply jockteen10 June 22, 2011 I liked Kim but with the show ending I want the only reurning characters to be of some importance to the show’s past and history(Karen, Larry, Cord, Tina etc.) Log in to Reply appleridge June 22, 2011 Lets see what plays out It could just be a few days. Guys the show has 7 months left on air. Thats A lot of time to tell story & bring back folks Log in to Reply DynamiteKiddo June 22, 2011 Well, I’m praying Marty will get a reprieve for the finale, but her ending felt incredibly final. Unless TK and BB agree to come back, too and Patrick/Marty bust Cole out of Statesville and they end on some kind of very uncharacteristic rogue note. I’d give anything to have Susan Haskell back for a proper resolution for this show’s most important heroine after Viki. I was sure DG would be back as Kevin, but for what if his two most significant ties, Kelly and Joey will be gone? I’m thinking we might get Tina & Cord . . . I was counting on Cassie and Adrianna, but I guess that’s out the window with Dorian and Kelly leaving (so Blair and her demon spawns will be the only Cramer’s left in Llanview?!?) I really don’t know who will be pulled out of the attic . . . ???

I think Kevin will be back for at least an appearance because he does have his parents and sisters still in Llanview. Perhaps he will show up with Cassie, having reunited off-screen? Then both Buchanan brothers get their happy endings with Cramer women. Log in to Reply gato1 June 22, 2011 I am happy to hear this news. I hope she and Clint are end game. I do not want Viki to get back with Clint; I doubt she would forgive all his hideous actions this year. Log in to Reply cheesehead91182 June 22, 2011 This just proves that One Life to Live is ran by idiots. The show is cancled and they choose to bring back this chick? Meanwhile they can’t even keep Dorain, Kelly and Marty on for the final few months. This show is a mess and will go out a mess. If Valentini and Carlivati really cared about giving the show a proper ending they would be brining back character like Tina, Cord, Kevin, Cassie, Larry, Wanda, Rafe, Delila, Max, Gabrielle and others instead. Log in to Reply snizzle June 22, 2011 I loved the character of Kim..can’t wait to seen what happens between her and Clint. I am sure Clint’s daughters will be thrilled, lol. I agree OLTL has the entire Fall to bring back the long lost beloved characters for the final ending….hope they do it right. Log in to Reply appleridge June 22, 2011 Robin Strasser and Gina T quit RS because of her back and Gina’s contract was up. Marty got released b4 the cancelation was announced Log in to Reply beansmorgan June 22, 2011 well, in their defense, looks like Dorian and Kelly left of their own volition. And Kim was a fun character, and her return would impact both Clint and David, so story-wise it makes sense. There are a lot of months left, and they are still trying to tell story, whereas a Larry or Wanda or Rafe or Delila return doesn’t really propel story at all. Frankly, while those characters may have been big tent pole characters at their time, they don’t really fit in with the current canvas. It would seem like old-home week just for the sake of old-home week. Log in to Reply Y2Jin99 June 22, 2011 Looks like I am in the minority. I too am excited to see Kim back in Llanview. I really liked her character. I still think OLTL has a small chance of surviving cuz the ratings keep going up and they might find a new home. Log in to Reply emblazoned June 22, 2011 I am excited for Kim’s return and can’t wait to see how the story plays out. Just because Amanda Setton is returning does not mean others cannot. And as previous posts have pointed out, there is still seven months of the show left for many more returns! Log in to Reply guilty pleasure June 22, 2011 I never liked the Kim character because of her association with the Stacy Morasco storyline, and I didn’t care about her phony marriage to Clint either! Why are they bringing this newbie character back when we need to get rid of all the other newbies on the show like Aubrey, Cutter, Rama, Vimal, Deanna, and Baz? The TPTB should bring the old veteran characters back instead! Log in to Reply liason4real June 22, 2011 Yeah! I was so looking forward to Natalie and Kim getting into it on a regular basis because of Clint. I thought the fact that Natalie’s new step-mother was about five to six years younger than she was coupled with Viki’s shocked look was all kinds of awesome! I doubt if AS is going to be on the show very long since OLTL has another six months to wrap things up and there are rumors that some characters will be gone by September. Log in to Reply TV Gord June 22, 2011 For all we know, she’s only coming back for one day to pop in as Clint recovers from his transplant. One day in the makeup chair does not mean a front-burner storyline. Log in to Reply AlistairCrane June 22, 2011 They need to PURGE half the cast as soon as possible and make the final few months about the vets and returning faves. Log in to Reply dkp June 22, 2011 I love Kim and Kim/Clint, but she wasn’t a character I would have brought back since the show is ending. But since she is, they better bring Kish back for an episode or two! Brett was in Vegas & attended some of Emmy events. Frank & Ron better of been chatting with him! Log in to Reply appleridge June 22, 2011 Exactly TV Gord Log in to Reply GHFan777 June 22, 2011 I am happy to hear this. I liked the character of Kim…I thought she was funny, and had great chemistry with Clint. After she left him is when he started to do bad things to people out of revenge…locking David up in the Moroccan prison for instance….She will probably be the start his trying to right all the things he did wrong. Personally I can see the show using her as a catalyst for this exact reason. Log in to Reply Nat Guy June 23, 2011 I’m fine with Kim coming back. It’s probably just short term. Plus I want to know what David had on her to make her leave town. Log in to Reply Y2Jin99 June 23, 2011 Please no Kish. Barf. The reason the ratings were in the toilet believe it or not. Tons of homophobes I guess out there. Not me. Just found them to be an absolute bore especially Fish. Didn’t mind Kyle as much. Rating are going up and up now. Bringing back Kish could reverse that trend. Log in to Reply east.west June 23, 2011 And now the post takes a turn. POPCORN! Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott June 23, 2011 Alstonboy let me know what you think!! Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 June 23, 2011 Ryan Scott– What I think about what?? Log in to Reply pumpkin June 23, 2011 Well, I remember how a lot kept going on singing her praises more than I ever thought she deserved. She did bring Jerry VanDorn to the front and I think it was then that they realized how good JVD is. I will credit her with that. Before that I don’t think they realized the gem they had with him. Now I can’t imagine the show without him at forefront. Yes, I do wonder what she has been up to. Wonder why she agreed to come back now. It is probably a limited thing. I think that I read where Agnus Nixon wants her soaps to go off and have people wondering the next day what everyone is doing. she does not want everything wrapped up Log in to Reply pumpkin June 23, 2011 Well, I remember how a lot kept going on singing her praises more than I ever thought she deserved.

She has no values.’ Beverlee! Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 June 23, 2011 Ryan Scott- I don’t want to hijack this thread, but I loved the scenes. I don’t recall much about Beverlee since I started watching in 1993 after Marj took over the role of Alexandra, but I have seen some YouTube videos and her chemistry with Kimberly Simms, who played Mindy before Barbara Crampton took over, was magnetic. Beverlee was magnificent. How could I NOT love those scenes? Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott June 23, 2011 Too cool Alstonboy! I had only started watching GL in her last year there and when she left it was devastating. I envy those who had seen her all those years on GL and when she played Iris on AW. Art. That’s what it must all been. Just beautiful art. Log in to Reply ChrisGa June 23, 2011 I loved Amanda Setton as Kim; she’s about a hundred times more interesting than ninety-five percent of the new characters they’ve introduced since she left(all the Fords, Aubrey, Cutter, et al) so I’m all for this. On another note, I’m digging all the Beverlee McKinsey love going around the threads in the last few days. Yes, her chemistry with Kimberly Simms was tremendous; throw in Michael Zaslow’s Roger(who Alex verbally annihilated on more than one occasion)and you had one of the best character triangles on soaps at time, if not the best. Log in to Reply keanna June 23, 2011 I like Amanda Seton and Kim, I am sure it’s only going to be for at most three or four episodes, Like I said before I am sure Ron and Frank have their list, maybe they’re starting with recent characters first. Log in to Reply AlistairCrane June 23, 2011 Some of you are way too overconfident in Ron and Frank. You will be disappointed. Log in to Reply akbad806 June 23, 2011 Focusing on horrible creations like Kim is exactly why One Life To Live is leaving the airwaves. Bring back Max, Tina, Cord and drop the dead weight, Ron! Log in to Reply appleridge June 23, 2011 OLTL is out cause ABC doesnt want Daytime Drama anymore. It has nothing to do with Acting writing directing or producing Log in to Reply Dariclone June 23, 2011 I’m actually happy tto hear Amanda Setton is returning. She’s so beautiful and she’s wasted on Gossip Girl. It would’ve been better though if she had not left in the first place, but if this can make Clint even an inch more likeable and possibly save from a Viki/Clint reunion then I’m all for it.

Those two had great chemistry: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QIRS8cHUMAI Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
