Robin Strasser, Other Costars Recall Soap Legend Jacqueline Courtney


The passing of soap icon Jacqueline Courtney (ex-Alice, Another World; ex-Pat, One Life to Live) has several of her former costars speaking out to our pals at We Love Soaps. One Life to Live star Robin Strasser, who first starred opposite Courtney as scheming, social climber Rachel Davis to Courtney's angelic, WASP beauty Alice Matthews recalled the late Courtney's "romantic incandescence".

I met Jacquie Courtney when I was cast as Rachel on Another World. During the years the show was at it's all time height, and set industry-wide standards, it was due in large part to Jacquie Courtney's indelibly romantic incandescence.  Lucky for me...because, as it turned out Rachel was all about shadow and darkness trying to steal Alice's light.
