63 January 12th, 2012 OLTL Poll: What Character Will You Miss the Most?

Courtesy/ABC

It is almost time to say goodbye to the citizens we love from Llanview and One Life to Live. So, now its time to think in your heart of hearts, “What character will you miss the most when One Life ends its network television run this Friday?”

On-Air On-Soaps have provided you with an opportunity to let your voices be heard. Cast you vote in our OLTL poll now through Friday night, January 13 2012 by 6PM PST/9PMEST. You can only vote once from one IP address, so make it count! The ballot is only for characters that must have appeared on One Life to Live from at least six months from the end of its run.

And, if there is a character you feel you will really long for on the current canvas that isn’t represented here, you can select the OTHER option. There, you can go ahead and write he or she in! Remember, this poll is for current characters in the cast, not characters who have not appeared on the series for years.

We will announce the results on Friday night’s BlazinRy and BlogTalkRadio broadcast event, The OLTL Finale Special – After the Show with Michael Fairman with special casts, Melissa Archer, John-Paul Lavoisier and Kristen Alderson live 7PMPST/10PMEST.

So after the jump vote in our OLTL Poll: What Character Will You Miss the Most?

    I voted VIki. She is the heart and soul of our beloved ONE LIFE TO LIVE, plus she’s the definition of CLASS ACT.

    I voted for Nora because Hillary B. Smith is the reason I started watching OLTL in the 1st. place.

    What an impossible question to answer. One of the best things about OLTL was the balance of the ensemble cast. I suppose Viki because she represents the ideal spouse, mother, sister, aunt, best friend, and all-around, ethical, loving human being we all wish we had in our lives. But surely, one of the reasons for OLTL’s long-term sustainability and successful is the presence of so many endearing characters played by exceptional performers. What would Viki be without Dorian? Who could forget the arguments and passion between Victor/Todd and Tea? Who didn’t smile every time Roxy, David, or Sam appeared? I love the other characters too. Who could single out one member of their family when you love them all?

    Trevor was good but Roger is THE Todd. Who knows? Trevor and the show said one thing but he appeared in the finale. Trevor may be exploring other possiblities. And with the finale, Trevor may join GH in the future.

    But Trevor is a master of emotions….. I would love to see him up against Sonny on GH. Both standing there cool, calm, or going so deep you don’t know where they are going to take you to, or just playing playful.. I would love to see them opposite one another standing their calm, cool, no matter what is being played to them.

    PS. Because (Sonny) Maurice Bernard is a master of emotions too. Howarth, also very complex, doesn’t have that range. He was always mostly dark (good at it) but no so multi- layered.

    Viki, Viki, Viki- there is NO actress better than Erika Slezak!! Love, love, love her! I can’t imagine not watching her everyday- shes always been a part of my life. So very sad!

    She is the Meryl Streep of Daytime, and should go do Feature Films, and Broadway, and win Emmy’s and Oscar’s, and show those over payed actor’s in Hollywood how to act.

    Reply

    Brandi Bridges replied

    Absolutely- well said! I have always thought of her as being a great combination of the best qualities of Meryl Streep and Julie Andrews! I can’t praise her enough!

  8. 1loveabcsoaps says:

    Vicki. She was like a surrogate mother. And one could tell she lives/lived her life REAL life with the same discipline that she plays her character (when the character is vicki/not the alter’s). But I have to throw a NON to Robin Strasser whom I’ve been upset she isnot in the historic picture finale. I hope they picture shop her picture into the photo. Robin poured her life blood into that show and gained ratings because of it. I will dearly miss Trevor St.John, whom it took awhile for me to warm up to him, BUT boy did he play the Hell out of that roll. Tea, I always thought she was beautiful; this year I feel in love with her acting. And by beloved newcomer Jack. I do loved those facial expressions of his. I will miss the darling Sam’s funny comments. I so wanted to watch his acting mature and see where his range would take him because of his comedic timing now…… I will miss everyone but these individuals the most. I pray the show is picked up before they scatter all over across the states.

    I voted Viki. She is the reason I started watching all those years ago and she continued to be the reason I still watched. I will miss the entire ensemble but my favorite was Viki (Erika Slezak).

    Viki was my first obvious choice too but what is the show without everyone else? How can we just name one character? Better if they’d asked who would we miss the least, I guess. That might still be hard, given this particularly excellent cast. This is one time I really love everyone on a show. Most times there are a few you can do without or just don’t take to but gosh, I love this group.

    Trevor St. John….Can’t believe GH did not choose him over Howarth !

    Reply

    1loveabcsoaps replied

    Exactly. If you lo look on this site, under the picture where they annouce that the Mannings are going to GH, I get into a LONG thing about that. Howarth has left the role more times than one can count, only to be found on another channel IMMEDIATELY after. St. John never left the role , and stayed on for the entire 8 years. OLTL wouldn’t allow him to stay as he wanted to stay on until the finale. They treated him as ” take a bow and be dismissed”. Howarth gets to get a new gig in sunny california while St. John and the rest of the cast are on the unemplyment line. ( I can’t get into anymore of this, it sickens me). You can find the long thing I wrote above it undet the picture and announcement on the site about them and GH. Howarth is none deserving of this.

    I agree but it makes sense that it is Roger because he is Todd Manning and the other Todd AKA Victor is suppose to be dead. His connection now is Tea, Dani and Sam.

    I liked Trevor much better then Roger, he is one of the best actors from that show, mean, funny, childlike, sexy he had it all!

    sophia3 replied

    I am heartbroken over the treatment of Trevor St. John…after all the years of true loyalty. I wish him all the best and hope he makes it as a leading actor. He is an amazing talent and I have a huge amount of respect for him. I love you Trevor !

    Todd. I’m a faithful GH watcher, so I will see am there, and am I happy about that, YES I AM, but would I prefer to see him with all of his schtick with his kids and relatives and Tea and Victor etc etc? Yes I would……

    I voted for Nora. I so highly identified with her strength, her chutzpah, her devotion to her family. Hilary B Smith took Nora and ran and never looked back. Even in a 9 month coma, I never gave up and neither did Nora. Through medical turmoil, arch nemesis, train wrecks and more, she always bounced back. I think I identified with her most was when she found herself totally off guard when Daniel admitted her was gay. I was going through the same situation and the pain, the humiliation Nora shown mirrored my own. I will miss Nora most of all.

    I selected Viki. Her longevity is amazing for a televison character. I remember when Erika Slezak took over the role. I also recall the first two actresses to portray Viki.
    Just like all the fans of this series, I am truly saddened today.

    I have watched the show since Day 1, I remember Meredith, Larry Vinnie, Joe even the evil Victor Lord. I despise ABC and when the lights go out in Landview, they go out on ABC as well. We don’t want talk shows, cooking shows, there’s already too many. We want what we grew up with, our OTHER FAMILY OLTL…. I know I got a little off base but I am so sad, cried all week and today I don’t know what I’ll do… My heart belongs to Todd, from the first day I have loved Todd…. love all the rest but Todd it has to be……
