161 January 15th, 2013 John-Paul Lavoisier & Farah Fath will NOT Be Part Of Prospect Park’s One Life to Live!

Courtesy/E!

Fans hoping for a return of Rex and Gigi and the Balsom clan will be in for a disappointment!  Last Friday when posed a question from a fan on her Twitter account, Farah Fath was asked, “Can we expect to see Rex and Gigi on One Life to Live online?”  Farah responded, “No.”

In addition, On-Air On-Soaps has confirmed with John-Paul Lavoisier today that it is true, that indeed he will not be part of the Llanview canvas.

Many fans were hoping to see Rex, Bo, and Natalie again if JP, Robert S. Woods (Bo) and Melissa Archer (Natalie) signed on for Prospect Park’s One Life to Live.  Thus far there has been no word on the status of Bob or Melissa from the actors themselves or Prospect Park.  Looks like Farah and JP have decided to continue to pursue roles in primetime television and films as pilot season is happening again!

So soapers, would you have liked to have seen John-Paul and Farah back on One Life? Let us know!

    I’m OK with their decisions.. they both know what is best for their lives and what will give them happiness…
    OLTL is not in their future by their choice….
    I wish them the best of everything on their career journey..

    I agree. While I like them, I really don’t feel the Rex/Gigi/Stacy/Shane etc story added very much. And Rex being Clint’s son was too forced. I do wish them well. For me it won’t really be OLTL without Bo/Bob Woods. But, pleeeese NO Melissa Archer.

    Why won’t you 2 come back with your son. You made the show. Rex always going to Bo for advice. Hope you think it through. You will be missed.We wanted OLTL be come back so much. Wouldn’t be the same without both of you.

    I doubt any of the actors who relocated to California are going to relocate again back East. Did enjoy their characters though; think the “canvas” is going to be pretty empty with only part of the cast.

    Josh Kelly (Cutter) has vaguely expressed interest in coming back to OLTL if PP approaches him again when fans asked him about it on his facebook page saying “he doesn’t know what will happen” and “stay tuned and we’ll see what will happen”, and Bree Williamson (Jessica, Tess, Bess, Wes) has said in a interview with a internet radio show saying she also expresed interest in coming back to OLTL as well if she can work it out with her busy schedule (she’s on a primetime show on NBC called “Deception” now), and both of them live in L.A. like FF an JPL do!

    Bree Williamson was also in a tv series on the Syfy Channel last season called Haven.

    bree williamson’s character on deception is already dead so that may free her up to do the oltl reboot…………..

    MBmomof3 replied

    I would love to see Josh Kelly & Bree Williamson sign on.

    Rex & Gigi will be missed as I love their characters and their ties to Roxy, Bo, Clint, Natalie, Shane, Vicky, etc.

    Don replied

    Well you know, It could be that FF and JPL are just waiting to see what happens. If it turns out that there isn’t the opportunity out west, and their OLTL parents like Roxy and Clint come back, they may change their minds.

    I figured they wouldn’t come since they moved to LA. Also how can they make Starr, Todd and John come to OLTL if all those actors moved to LA?

    They don’t have to make the actors move…but the characters do. Recasts?

    I HeartPoas replied

    That is a strange comment since they are playing the same characters on GH. If they don’t move over, they will probably continue where they are and make periodic crossovers like Skye Chandler used to.

    CTwildheart replied

    THAT is the legal conundrum they find themselves in. The CHARACTERS are licensed to Prospect Park. The ACTORS are in contract with ABC/D. If they can’t work it out, the actors can stay on GH, but they will have to be new characters and then the OLTL characters would be recast – if they were going to be used. They were only allowed to play the oltl characters because PP gave them the okay for the short term…now they want them back.

    Well, I did, until I watched “Dirty Soap”. FF is a real piece of work. She also could use a little self-control when it comes to Twitter.

    I thought the same thing when I saw her on Dirty Soap, didn’t like the way she was treating “Rex” . They were such a cute couple on OLTL but then she was acting.

    Aidan replied

    You know Dirty Soap was scripted, right? Farah’s awesome and I think her Twitter is hysterical. I like people who speak their minds and don’t apologize for it.

    Let’s also remember that FF was acting towards JPL. She’s doing what a writer/director wanted her to do.

    I remember when I first started to watch OlTl Tina and Gabrielle were pulling each other hair, I laughed. Then I seen the luv between max and Blair, and I fell with Megan and her hubby, I dont remember his name. That was when I luv the show and wish to see them again. I really mis the old bad guy Carlos.

    It seemed that Farah never wanted to be part of OLTL and couldnt wait until the show ended from what I saw on Dirty Soap. JP seemed to be truly sad that it was ending and had hope for OLTL2.0 (the first attempt) but Farah wasn’t having it and couldn’t wait to move to LA. It seemed like Farah was consistently crushing JP’s hopes and dreams. Let’s just say I think Farah is kind of a bitch and had JP on a leash.

    Wow, Mind Boggler, you just said everything I was thinking but I tried to be a bit more polite. But you are exactly right. That’s exactly the way it was portrayed on Dirty Soap.

    John-Paul may have confirmed to Michael that he does not want part of the reboot, but I would not be a bit surprised if it’s because Farah told him not to.

    TRW replied

    I believe they are no longer together.

    MBmomof3 replied

    Well said. I too got the feeling she wanted out, but JPL, not so much. Maybe he’ll get smart and move back to the east coast closer to his family and away from his new “mom” FF. Their relationship was painful to watch on Dirty Soap. All she wanted to do was change him. She actually came off looking really bad in every relationship she had on that show IMO. I won’t miss her on OLTL 2.0

    Reply

  19. Michelle says:

    Gigi was useless on the show so I won’t miss the character at all, and I was turned off by Farah Fath after seeing her on Dirty Soap. I wouldn’t have minded having JP back as Rex but no big loss if he doesn’t come back.

    I’d rather see Kassie DePaiva, Erika Slezak, Hillary B Smith, and Melissa Archer back first anyway.

    Torrey replied

    Have to agree with you. I was always a big Gig & Rex fan, but once I saw her on Dirty Soap…..let’s just say she left a filthy scum that I could not get rid of….LOL Her attitude, dirty mouth and ego was a big turn off for me. Kinda sad, because I liked the storyline that was done with the bullying involving Gigi, Rex, Shane & Jack…..they all did such a wonderful job with that story arc, but like I said Dirty Soap helped end the love that I had for Gigi/ Farah..

    I do respect their decisions – but um…hate to be captain obvious – but haven’t exactly seen either of them catching any gigs on any shows in…over a year…so like I think the whole “pilot season” excuse is a bit long in the tooth, yea. Perhaps thou protest too much? Or better yet, probably shouldn’t be so quick like to turn down a steady gig when H-wood ain’t zactly beatin a path…. Just strictly my opinion…

    Reply

    MBmomof3 replied

    I was thinking the same thing. I wouldn’t mind seeing JPL & Austin Williams as Rex & Shane though. Maybe Gigi stayed in London after the breakup or comes back as the girl who played Stacy (sorry, forgot her name, but I liked her). That would be poetic justice.

    Michael, when you talked to JPL about his and Fara’s confirmation about them not doing the OLTL reboot for PP, did you ask him (or did he mention if you didn’t ask him) anything about PP contacting them to do the OLTL reboot, and both of them turning down the deal?

    Ok so JPL said no. They dont need to relocate. PP is alternating filming of AMC & OLTL. Both soaps will share the same studio and crew I hear. So it looks like film 6 weeks of AMC than 6 weeks of OLTL then repeat until all episodes are produced. So all actors need to do is fly to CT. No one needs to live there. This could be a great schedule for actors film six weeks off six weeks off rthen repeat. That schedule leaves tons of time for outside projects

    You read my mind. Why do they have to “relocate” for the shoot? It would seem to me that they would also have the option of doing other projects. Actors do it all the time.

    JP & Farah broke up about 9 months ago. They somehow managed to keep it out of the news. Many wonder what happened, including myself. His lack of commitment was probably a big part of it, too.

    How do you know they broke up? Just because he doesn’t mention her doesn’t mean they broke up. It’s hard to think about marriage when neither has a job now. Dirty Soap was a reality-based series and was fairly scripted. Farah admitted that herself.

    I loved watching Destiny & David a few days ago, when they went to London. Can’t have Destiny without Sean… I just read that Dorian signed, so things are looking better by the

    I wish Everyone would be more optomistic about the new AMC & OLTL! I sure hope the person that said they will be gone in 1 year is very wrong! If it goes only for 1 year it is better than not at all. We the fans helped to make it happen by not giving up on it.

    Reply

    Renee replied

    I definitely think that all the fans and other people out there should try to stay positive about AMC & OLTL. If we support them online and watch, then continue to generate enough buzz about them it is possible that instead of cable showing it later after we have seen it online they could return to t.v. full time. But one thing is for sure, if we don’t watch they won’t be around long. So everyone has to do their part and help. Watch the shows online.

    Thank you for getting an answer from JP – the tweet from FF was pretty misleading – Someone asked if Rex/Gigi would be returning and she simply answered “No.” They could be interpreted a few different ways so I appreciate the clarification. I didn’t like her answering for him, regardless if they date in real life.

    I would love to see Rex back, Gigi not so much. Rex is a Buchanan, there is room for him in Llanview, recast or otherwise. JP had such amazing chemistry with RW, MA and ES. I would especially love to see more of the relationship play out with JVD.

    I am just too excited for OLTL to return! They are like family and I have missed them so much! :)

    When thinking of my “must-have” list of cast members for the reboot, Rex/Gigi were not remotely on it. There are so many others that should be brought back first so this news doesn’t disappoint me at all.

I did love the ending story line bewteen them before OLTL went off the air. I wish them both luck in their endeavors and who knows maybe both or just one of them may make an apperance once in awhile, that sure would be nice.

    I am very disappointed that FF & JPL will not be returning but as some have said, I would be o.k. with these 2 being recast. I think the part of Rex is very important to the Buchanan family. Clint will need all of his children there. Cord, Kevin and Joey already live in England. Seriously all of his kids didn’t just up and move away from Landview. I will miss FF and JPL in these parts, but it’s their choice. I wish them both the best! They could have a change of heart later.

    While I like Rex and Gigi, I think with a 30 minute format they need to concentrate on the bigger names.

    I dont expect Bree Williamson to be a part of it either. I think they can recast almost anyone and slowly re-introduce the characters.

    You cant recast Slezak, Woods, Ver Dorn, Strasser or DepAiva.

    Boo! It is only 6 months out of the year. I am disappointed in Farah’s decision. I guess she is too busy waiting for something to happen in LA. John Paul always seemed hesitant to move to LA, and let her force him. They OWE it to OLTL to return for a year to help launch it. They met because of OLTL. They are “celebrities” because of OLTL. I think Farah is being selfish.

    I’m currently watching what some fans dubbed “The Morasco Fiasco” OLTL reruns on SOAPnet. I really liked that storyline with Stacy, Kim, Skylar, Kyle, Fish, Roxy and of course, Rex, Gigi & Shane. Stacy is telling everyone she is preggers with Rex’s baby when it’s really Fish’s. Good stuff. I missed Stacy & eventually Kim, Skylar & “Kish” when the storyline played-out. But honestly, as much as I liked Scott Clifton & JPL, their acting styles are so similar that it was downright distracting watching them twitch in scenes together. Still loved ‘em. OLTL Rocks!

    Their little family got a great sendoff when the ABC run ended. I am OK with those characters being finished, at least in the personages of JP and Farah. I did like JP a lot, however, and he will be missed. Those Gigi storylines, especially those involving her sister, are done for me. No more of those, please.

    OLTL will be an economy model, I am sure, come its Prospect Park debut. I am prepared for new actors in classic roles, new actors and new roles, and new plotlines told in ways that will fit the new medium and confines (30 minutes, four days). All OLTL fans should be.

    You’re right Iakovos. I’m a sucker for a happy ending. Fans did get closure on that storyline and those characters. So many other possible storylines with over 43 years of history to draw from. I also agree that OLTL 2.0 will be very different from what the fans know & expect. I’m OK with that.

    JP has said he hates LA, so I think FF is in charge of this decision. I think if they ever breakup JP will be back. Still would love to see JP on GH as Rex or Dillon.

    I am happier than a fat rat in a cheese factory at this news. Now if you tell me they are recasting Starr than I may throw a hellacious jumping for joy party with my oltl friends and family members who loathed Rex, Gigi, Shane, and Starr

    Then you should find a new show. You are not a OLTL fan.

    I think it’s smart of any AMC or OLTL actor not to sign on until the shows prove that they’re worthwhile commitments to make. Could be a disaster.

    Good point-I think in her drunk-tweet the other day, Farah’s just looking for proof that New OLTL will actually happen before committing

    There will be a huge hole with OLTL’s storylines without Rex and Gigi. I would have liked seeing Shane graduate from high school, and Gigi become a famojus artist! Hopefully, there will be a sufficient number of actors reprising their roles. I hope that John and Farah have wonderful careers ahead of them!

    They really kind of killed the Rex-Gigi storyline with that outrageous turn of events at the end of the show. JPL and FF are both exceptional talents. Llanview will survive without them.

    i’m sorry that JP isnt coming back to the show, but i could live without FF…after watching her in Dirty Soap and the way she tries to lead JP around by the nose and the way she treated everyone else on the show, yuck..i know it was just a tv show, but it was basically about all of their lives and there wasnt anyone that ticked me off as much as her other than Nadia’s mom lol

    Can’t wait for OLTL to return, but I’m afraid that my internet won’t let me watch. My wireless internet is so slow that I can’t really download anything more than 30 seconds long. Hopefully the show is successful and eventually we will have decent internet here in the country and I can watch!

    I think its good that OLTL and even AMC don’t bring back all of the original cast. It allows them to bring back a cast that is equal parts familiar and new. It will allow for what makes soaps perfect… blackmail, scandal, sex, murder, and more blackmail! It will afford characters to come on without their back story having been played out for decades to where there are no secrets anymore.

    It will make the restarts fresher and new but still amazingly familiar. Here’s hoping that it all looks and feels great!!!

    I want to see JP and Farah return to OLTL. That’s the only reason I got more into the show. They are my two most favorite characters on OLTL. I want their storyline to continue. I don’t want them to change. John Paul and Farah needs to return (with the original character Shane) to One Life to Live. Prospect Parks, GET OUR CHARACTERS BACK IN ORDER!!! I’m sure Agnes would have had all the original cast members… :(

    Absolutely, bring Rex (John Paul) and Gigi (Farah) back on OLTL~!!

    Characters Gigi and Rex were an amazing cast on OLTL and very disappointed that they are not returning to continue on the new journey with Prospect Park. I would love to see their clan with Shane as the original characters.

    I wont my whole clan back gigi and rex and john, star, and the old destiny, I cant stand the new one, Natalie and John as the good coupe and GIGI and Rex was even better I watch General hospital and cant stand the girl that really is Star but playing KIKI but on top of it my mom has always watch OLTL and AMC and she cant watch it because she don’t have DSL for the last 29 years but haven’t watched none since it came on computer. So I prefer it to go back on TV I figure yall lost a lot of viewers when u went to computer.

    the cancellation of OLTL just gave me the impetus to stop watching TV altogether. I am much happier now and have the time to do the things that I really want to do. I’m not wasting precious time in front of the tube.

    You HAVE to bring back Rex and Gigi, and yes, the same actors!!!! I loved them. Rex is hotter than hell and GiGi is a beautiful woman. Please bring them back!!! I also want Todd to come back on OLTL with Star because I loved the original Franco. Todd needs to come back to Blair!!

    I’m a Long time OLTL fan. Rex and Gigi were two of my faves, as well as Jessica. I just recently started catching up online, and was surprised and disappointed to see characters not only missing, but no explanation of where they went. It’s like they never existed! Do people just forget their brother, sister, son, or daughter? I mean I know soap logic doesn’t exist, but this is ridiculous!
