Catherine Hickland on One Life To Live Return: “It’s Sort Of Ambiguous”

Just what brings outspoken soap veteran Catherine Hickland back to One Life To LiveTV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan gets the scoop from Hickland on what viewers can expect when alter ego Lindsay Rapapport returns to Llanview.
TV Guide Magazine: Back to OLTL. Word is, after the big prison break an incognito Lindsay makes a beeline for her old flame Bo [Bob Woods]. Does she still have a thing for him?

Hickland: It's sort of ambiguous. I'm not being coy. I really couldn't tell from the script. But, yeah, I got to work with Bob and Hillary B. Smith [Nora] and Ty Treadway a bit. For me, it was a satisfying ending for my character. I liked the idea of playing Lindsay one more time. That character has a place in history on that show, that's for sure. Though, at that point, Prospect Park was still planning to take the show to the Internet. I was happy to wrap it up, or leave it open. Whatever they had in mind.


Hickland also dishes on why she came out swinging against OLTL and All My Children getting the axe from ABC and speaking out against former ABC Daytime President Brian Frons.

Catherine Hickland Back To One Life To Live!



Now we've got a ballgame! Outspoken diva Catherine Hickland is heading back to One Life To Live to reprise her role as the bitch-tastic Lindsay Rappaport. The fan favorite made the announcement via Twitter stating:

Ok, are you sitting down? OLTL has asked me to bring Miss Lindsay Rappaport to the dance B4 the end. I said YES #puttingdancingshoeson
 

No word on when Hickland's first airdated is slated for, or how long her run on the show will be.

Catherine Hickland: “You Don’t Treat Your Family Like They Don’t Matter”


Soap veteran Catherine Hickland is still steaming mad with the news of ABC's decision to yank All My Children and One Life To Live off the air. The actress sounded off on her blog and doesn't hold back. Hickland stated:
Soap actors and audiences dance a dance. We laugh together, cry together, survive together and love together. That’s what makes a family. Whenever I would hear you-know-who make a speech and call us the “ABC family,’ it made my skin literally crawl. You don’t treat your family like they don’t matter.

Hickland goes on to ask the question of how ABC Daytime President Brian Frons is still calling the shots. Hickland stated:

Former OLTL Star Catherine Hickland: “Because Every Show Brian Frons Touches Dies, Does That Make Him a Serial Killer?”

Go get em'! Former One Life To Live diva Catherine Hickland isn't playing around with her thoughts regarding the cancellations of One Life to Live and All My Children. The actress stated on Twitter:
The actors were not even told before the press! What a class act. Too bad it's all third. What a TOOL! #AMC #OLTL. No Michael Knight on Daytime? IMPOSSIBLE! UNTHINKABLE! #. Because every show Brian Frons touches, dies, does that make him a serial killer? To whom it may concern... May your Karma be SWIFT.


Tell em Catherine!

One Life to Live Stars Attend Catherine Hickland’s Christmas Dinner


Many of the One Life to Live cast turned out to support  former co-star Catherine Hickland’s (pictured above with Robert S. Woods, Kristen Alderson and Thorsten Kaye) Christmas Dinner on December 16 in New York City. The annual event benefits the West End Intergenerational Residence. Earlier this Fall, the organization dedicated their multi-purpose room to Hickland, in honor of unmatched commitment to the center. See more photos after the jump!

Catherine Hickland Returns to One Life to Live



Just in time to add a little more drama to the Bo-Nora-Clint triangle, Catherine Hickland (Lindsay Rappaport) returns to One Life to Live. Soap Opera Digest has the report.

Lindsay is currently serving time for Spencer's murder so just how is Ms. Rappaport returning Llanview? RUMORS say Clint has Lindsay released to give his little brother something else to do than spend time with Nora. Further CHATTER has Lindsay and Hickland only back at OLTL for a short stint. With RJ Gannon recently back in town and the above mentioned triangle, this could be an interesting summer on One Life to Live.

Game On!

Jennifer, Colin, & Lindsay
Every once in a while a soap produces a story arc that renews one's faith in the genre.

One Life to Live's "Who Wants to Be Shane Morasco's Father?" may have been a stunt but they were also episodes that managed to do right just about everything the 40th anniversary episodes got wrong.

In the bargain, they did everything the anniversary episodes did right just a few notches better. I know this kind of thing is not everyone's cup of tea, but I'll take this little detour the way Star Trek's Captain Picard likes his Earl Grey: Hot!

Borrowing the Who Wants to be a Millionaire? set, OLTL took what was rapidly becoming a hoary cliche — the near death out of body experience — and instantly breathed new life into it. While Viki's latest visit to "heaven" here and the shared Chris/Allison/Aaron Fellini-esque versions on As the World Turns were done very well, the staging and production of Rex's game show experience lent the entire sequence an air of immediacy that a cheesy in-house set would have been unable to accomplish.

One Life to Live Spoilers & Scoops!

We haven't done these in awhile and like I've said, I'm a bit behind on my One Life to Live, so bear with me.

Here's the Scoop!

Love Lindsay? We do and the RUMOR mill says she may not be in Llanview much longer. Catherine Hickland is a Daytime Confidential favorite and Lindsay will be sorely missed. Supposedly there will be one more meeting for Bo and Lindsay, but that footage may hit the cutting room floor. Expect Bo to start flirting with Dallas,TPTB are attempting to see if real life chemistry can translate to reel life. However, Dallas is also rumored to be one of the murders coming soon, so fan response will dictate.

How does Clint react to Bo and Dallas?
Not well and this should cause some friction for Nora. Clint has other issues coming up as well.

Have you seen the Fall Preview?
Interesting tease of an Antonio - Jessica reunion or was the tease a Cristian - Jessica reunion?
