Janet Hubert Returns to One Life to Live


According to, actress Janet Hubert, best known for her role as Vivian Banks on Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, will be reprising her role on One Life to Live as Lisa Williamson, the mother of Leyla Williamson (Tika Sumpter) and her comotose sister Evangeline (played by Renee Goldsberry) that she originated in 2005. As Cristian (David Fumero) and Leyla break the news, look for a surprise ahead from Mother Williamson.

Look for Layla and Cris to break the news of their engagement to her mother, who has some news of her own to deliver. Evangeline, stuck in a coma since being attacked by white supremacists back in 2007, has taken a turn for the worse and has been placed on life support. The development becomes even harder for Layla when she learns her big sis has a living will, which literally places her sibling's life in her hands. Furthermore, Vang's last wishes conflict with her mother, who is reluctant to let go of her eldest daughter...placing Layla between a rock and a hard place. Fans can also expect Mrs. Williamson to become involved (albeit indirectly) in another Llanview story, in which a certain person panics when she calls and asks for someone whose name we have been hearing a lot lately.
