As As the World Turns cast and crew finished up their final tape day this week in Brooklyn, its hard to fathom its the end of a historic 54-year-run on network television.   Several of the stars spoke with Associated Press on the final tape day and thoughts on the ending of their time in Oakdale including the fantastic Terri Colombino who had played Katie Peretti for all she is worth for some 12 years.   ”I think I was in shock for a while,” said Colombino, The idea of parting company with Katie “feels like a death,” she said, wiping her eyes — “which is good that we’re having a sad story line at the end, so we can all kind of work through it. It’s very cathartic.”

The AP article nicely put this analogy, “But it has also been hard to get through, filled with painful reminders that the show will soon be history. Reminders are even here in her dressing room. Colombino pointed to her makeup mirror. Only four of its bulbs were still lit, the other 14 bulbs burned out.”

Hankies! :(

    At least Columbino won’t be in Daytime anymore, along w/ Peck. After news reports abt them and her interview on MF On Air On Soaps where she all but admitted what was reported abt their marriages and the cause of their destruction, it’s difficult to have any sympathy for her or for Austin Peck for that matter, especially since it impacted not only their personal lives but ATWT’s storylines as well.
