Dear Friends, Well, this year has certainly been one of ups and downs; we started last January with such high hopes for the revivals of One Life to Live and All My Children and things seemed to be going so well when we started production in March. Unfortunately we produced only 8 weeks of shows, and then everything fell apart. Our boss, Jeff Kwatinetz, is still trying to bring both shows back, but personally I think that will be a very difficult feat to pull off. As things stand now, production on both shows has been shut down, so there will be no more OLTL or AMC, at least not in the near future. But we never give up hope! In any case, I loved being back at OLTL; I loved being back with all my friends on the show and we had a wonderful time although it was short lived. Still, I am very grateful for that brief opportunity to have played Viki once more. Personally my life has been very busy and very good. It’s wonderful to be home and enjoy all the pleasures of home life. I am hoping that in the next year I will be able to find work elsewhere but if that doesn’t happen right away, I will be grateful for what I had. Once again, I want thank Walter Miller for his unflagging support and for keeping this little club afloat. I also want to thank AJ, Kit Williams and Stephen Schofield. Walter and Stephen spent a lot of time in correspondence with Jennifer Pepperman, our most recent producer, and were invaluable in assisting her with photos and background information on OLTL and Victoria Lord. And in particular, I would like to thank all of you for your incredible support during our online phase. This would never have come about if it hadn’t been for you, and the entire cast and crew of OLTL is extremely grateful. I wish all of you a very happy and healthy holiday season and all good wishes for the New Year. We never know what the future holds, so perhaps I will see you all again from the screen or the stage or wherever. Merry Christmas! With Love, Erika 4 Responses Patchworks December 12, 2013 Erika Slezak is such a gracious soap icon. Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott December 12, 2013 I just love that woman and I miss seeing Viki on my screen. Log in to Reply Screamer_2012 December 12, 2013 I love Erika Slezak sooo much! I grew up watching her on OLTL, and I feel like she’s my aunt. I wish they could bring her aboard on GH. Log in to Reply samIShot December 12, 2013 I am mad about the PP failure, if nothing else, because it forced GH to have to remove Todd, Starr and John and by extension we lost the chance to see more Tea, Blair and moving forward, maybe Viki. After all of that, OLTL is still gone and we are stuck with Franco instead of Soap Icon Character Todd Manning. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
