5 May 31st, 2011 Is Gina Tognoni headed out of One Life to Live early?


Well the Internet was abuzz over the holiday weekend from a tweet by Robin Strasser (Dorian, OLTL) announcing that her last tape date at OLTL will be July 1st, but that the tweet also indicated, that it was also the final tape date for Gina Tognoni as Kelly Cramer!  As many know, Strasser has to exit the series early to have much needed back surgery.

Strasser tweeted, “Have no control over how they’ll write Dorian/Kelly off by July 1- I haven’t had significant story in years-hoping they’ll do D. and K.good.”

So the question is, will Gina be leaving OLTL early to perhaps start a new gig somewhere else?  Remember, Tognoni also left Guiding Light early before its final months of shows.  It would seem perhaps Tognoni and Strasser might pre-tape some scenes that would air closer to the end of the OLTL’s run, but that also remains to be seen.

    I really hope not! Gina Tognoni is such an amazing performer! I would much rather see Clint gone than Kelly. Sorry that RS is leaving, but her health must come first, and her fans understand that!

    I think if Gina has a chance to keep working, she should take it! She left GL early to go to OLTL but she was in the last show, and she was also doing fan events. Gina is a great person and I applaud her ability to reinvent herself and stay working. As the genre gets smaller, work is going to be harder for daytime vets. Its a sad state of affairs, but in the long run Gina is doing the best she can for herself and her family.

    it’s a shame they did not write a decent s/l for kelly this time around…….

    Gee what are they doing with all these wonderful actresses? The shows should give them all ground breaking story’s, but no all they got was weak story what a shame.

    That is really too bad she is very good but in light of the bleak future can you blame people for walking-and if in fact it is storyline dictated they are merely cutting costs-I hate what they did to Marty and I hope Robin Strasser is on the mend but frankly what did any of these people get but a swift kick and even as a 40 plus soap fan I hope that OLTL is left with three people Jess Tess and the other mess. Just plain dispictable the whole deal.
