Reportedly, Torpey will play a different character and not Jessica Buchanan, currently portrayed by Bree Williamson. 25 Responses No Daisy June 27, 2011 I hope they bring her on to give Christian a love interest before he exits. His taste in women has taken a nosedive the last several years (with the exception of the Layla)and I’d like to see him get a happy ending. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 June 27, 2011 This is totally random and unexpected…… But I’ve always like Erin Torpey, so I’m not complaining….. Log in to Reply jockteen10 June 27, 2011 Great news!!!! A bit random though. I wonder who she will play??? Perhaps Megan again? A random chick who gives Viki advice? Log in to Reply pumpkin June 27, 2011 I am watching oltl for four years so I don’t care that much about returns. I do see the resemblence to BW though. Log in to Reply keanna June 27, 2011 Great unexpected news indeed, I grew up watching Erin as Jessica, so I am not complaining either, I wonder who she’ll be playing? A recast or a completely new character, I think she’s for Christian. Log in to Reply petitejolie June 27, 2011 I think that’s the perfect way to write Christian off. Log in to Reply GertieGal June 27, 2011 Well, if this is for a Christian exit then I think it is a cool thing…otherwise I just do not see the purpose. Bree has definitely made the part her own and Erin has been gone for a long time. In a side note: IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE THAT THIS SHOW IS LEAVING THE AIR – I HAVE BEEN WATCHING SINCE 1979 – IT IS LIKE LOSING A PART OF ME! Log in to Reply AlistairCrane June 27, 2011 I love her! Erin Torpey is the only Jessica that counts, in my opinion. I loved her with David Fumero’s Cristian, so maybe she will escort him off the canvas as many are predicting/hoping. Log in to Reply Littlelamb04 June 27, 2011 She could come on and play Sarah Roberts. Log in to Reply jlafferty23 June 27, 2011 LOL, this is random… I hope they put her character with Christian… Log in to Reply samanthadelayed June 27, 2011 It will be good to see her again no matter who she plays. Log in to Reply SoapArmageddon June 27, 2011 I don’t really recall the circumstances in which Erin left: whether it was by choice or whether they let her go; but she really is the one and only Jessica for me. Erin’s Jessica seemed too nice and normal for the audience to buy her having mental issues. In addition, She brought a spark to this character that Bree Williamson’s Jessica has never had. I think that’s why they gave Bree the alters, to try to give her some of that spark. Log in to Reply JAQ June 27, 2011 It’s always nice to see old friends again!! However, Bree is Jessica for me! :love: Log in to Reply AlistairCrane June 27, 2011 Littlelamb, I have been wanting Erin to come on as Sarah and reunite with Cristian for some time now! That would be some cool casting, but I think it will be as lame as Xander’s return on GH to escort Natalia Livingston’s character off the canvas. It would’ve been cool if Bree could out for an episode and let Erin play Jess one last time. Log in to Reply lfad June 27, 2011 I really liked ET’s Jessica. I loathe that retconned mess of a character that’s been running around Llanview for the past 8 years. Log in to Reply Daniel St. John June 27, 2011 [quote=Littlelamb04]She could come on and play Sarah Roberts.[/quote] I had the same thought when I read she was coming back. Log in to Reply sunnydays25 June 27, 2011 I was very excited that she was coming back…then I saw that she’s playing a different character It’s going to be a little strange to see the original Jessica as a totally different person, but if that’s the best they can do, I’ll have to settle for it. I’ve been over BW portrayal for years!! And I believe they replaced her because they wanted to “age” Jessica a little. Log in to Reply ChrisGa June 28, 2011 Great news; she’s still the only Jessica in my book(though I have to say for the first time EVER, last week BW was actually on fire….as Jessica! Wonders never cease apparently lol). I agree, it would be nice to see Cristian get a good send-off; he’s been wasted now for the last six or eight months. As for why she left, I think it was actually of her own accord. I seem to remember thinking she just wanted a break; don’t think she was let go or the character aged, though I might be mistaken. Log in to Reply Soap_Stud June 28, 2011 Love me some Erin Torpey. Excited for her to return one last time! Log in to Reply drazzledrizzlejj June 28, 2011 Erin left the show because she needed a break. And she wanted to focus more on her music. She was not let go, OLTL wouldn’t do that to her. She was a great actress, a fan favorite, and had a story. They didn’t age Jessica when Bree showed up either. Bree is only 2 years older than Erin. Anyways, soooo excited for this! Its a dream come true. Erin was my favorite and i’ve missed her so much. It sounds like its only a one day thing, which is disappointing. But i’ll take what i can get. I hope it is to usher out Cristian since ET and DF had crazy chemistry. Log in to Reply GHfan-4now June 28, 2011 Aww, I love Erin Torpey! LOVED her Jessica (love Bree better as Tess, but she’s been KILLING it as Jessica latelty). So GLAD ET’s coming back! I loved her with Cristian too! Log in to Reply liason4real June 28, 2011 TSJ is out next month! http://www.trevorstjohn.com/trevor-blog.html Log in to Reply maxsmom June 28, 2011 I love Erin who left of her own accord, I want to say she moved to California. She and David were quite the tempestuous young lovers though they were so young back then. I don’t care why she’s back or who she is playing I am glad to hear she’s back. Imagine tuning into OLTL and hearing the part of Starr Manning or GH with Robin Scorpio is now being played by fill in the blank. Kristen Aldersen didn’t renew her contract and is off to try her luck at pilot season, KMc is directing an indie movie. It would be stunning because many of us remember them in the roles when they were in single digits. Well, I remember 9year old Erin Torpey playing Jess for 13 years and leaving her mark on my heart. It doesnt have anything to do with Bree. Log in to Reply Dariclone June 28, 2011 I love this! Thank you for this news.

YAY!! I loved Cristian and Jessica! Here’s hoping Erin is playing Cristian’s ex (and Jessica’s cousin) Sarah Roberts and not some random.
