In breaking news this morning, Ellen Wheeler has apparently been hired by her sister soap As the World Turns as a director! This revealed in Nelson Branco’s TV Guide Canada’s Monday column, The Soapgeist! Wheeler, who had taken the heat and was much maligned in her tenure as director of Guiding Light through to it’s final episodes, is said to be already on board in Oakdale.
One furious actor told Soapgeist, “It’s a nightmare. You know we’ll be cancelled now!” The jury will certainly be out on this one to see if Wheeler can sustain and help As the World Turns or not. Stay tuned.
