There isn’t a One Life to Live fan who is not excited about seeing the return of their all-time favorite Llanview heroine, Victoria Lord Banks, as we knew her name to be when we last saw her. Did she marry Clint and become a Buchanan again? We will soon find out the answer to that when One Life to Live returns online on April 29th with all new episodes.
Six-time Daytime Emmy winner, Erika Slezak returned to playing the role of Viki last week at One Life’s new Connecticut studios as production resumed on the series since November 18th. 2011. Slezak put her thoughts on her first week back in a very special note to her fans on her website! Here it is below:
From Erika Slezak: “Hi, I thought I would let you know how it all went. Monday and Tuesday were fairly easy days for me. The production team is working very hard to get everything right. We have beautiful sets and wonderful new costumes. The studio itself is large and spacious with great dressing room space and everything seems to be working! On Monday, our Prospect Park producers Rich Frank and Jeff Kwatinetz were on hand to welcome everyone and there is a wonderful sense of excitement throughout. The scripts are really good, and I think the audience will be very happy with what One Life to Live is doing. Viki and Dorian are at it again and what fun that is. We have some marvelous new actors, Robert Gorrie is Matthew Buchanan, Laura Harrier is Destiny and we have Corbin Bleu joining the cast as a reporter for The Banner, who I believe will be a very important character. That’s about all that I know so far – we are having fun and hoping for our former audience to return and continue to enjoy and for our new audience to get to know us. We had a lovely group of fans come to the studio on our first shooting day. They came with flowers and balloons and were very excited to be there in spite of the bitter cold. A group of cast members went outside to greet them and lots of pictures were taken. Our first air date is April 29th, beginning at noon. So tune to Hulu, Hulu Plus or Itunes after noon on the 29th and we’ll all be together again. Erika”
So One Life fans are you happy to hear from Erika on who she thinks the new One Life is settling in and knowing she is on board 100%? Excited to see Viki and Dorian (Robin Strasser) at it again on-screen? Wondering how Cordin Bleu’s character of Jeffrey King will figure into the equation? Let us know your thoughts! We were thrilled to hear this from Erika, and hope you feel the same.
