Former Guiding Light star and Daytime Emmy winner Jeff Branson is finally coming to Venice!  Crystal Chappell and Kim Turrisi announced the news exclusively in their new Venice interview at On-Air On-Soaps.  Chappell with smiles said, “Yup!  Jeff Branson is coming on board as Van!  So it will be Gina Tognoni (Sami) and Jeff and Galen Gering (Owen), in a story, and that is going to be messy. Van has something to resolve.”

Last year, Branson was set to play Owen, but had another commitment. Chappell says she has a handle on the situation this time. “Jeff Branson is a friend of mine.  I am going to kick his ass if he takes another show this time! (Laughs). ”

Chappell also detailed then many people have approached the Venice team. “We also have some great people who have approached us about directing.  I ran into Susan Flannery (Stephanie, B&B) at Frances Reid’s celebration.  I asked Susan, “I would like you to come direct a little bit,”  She was so gracious and said, “I would love to do it.”
