Get ready One Life to Live fans, tonight on Monday April 16th at 9PMEST/8PMCST, six-time Daytime Emmy winner, Erika Slezak (Viki, OLTL) makes her return to television in a guest-starring role on Fox’s new medical drama, The Resident.

The Resident also stars some very familiar soapy faces including: Emily Van Camp (Ex-Emily, Revenge) and Melina Kanakaredes (Ex-Eleni, GL). Tonight’s episode is entitled “Haunted” and in the log lines for it, the series relates: “Conrad is hit by a bike and badly sprains his ankle, but works through it when he takes the case of his old medical professor, who is hallucinating visions of her old patients. Devon is tasked with admitting Conrad, who refuses any sort of treatment. Nic tries to navigate her emotions while mourning the loss of a patient and Bell operates on a foreign dignitary with unforeseen complications. Meanwhile, Lane and Bell’s relationship grows closer.”

Erika plays Dr. Eileen Jacoby.

Make sure to check out The Resident, and then let us know if you were thrilled to see Erika back on television where she has been sorely missed via the comment section below.

    She’s still got it !!! Great acting as only ES can.


  2. Phyllis Fontaine DeMarco says:

    So glad you posted this. I had not even heard of the show. It was so great to see Erika Slezak and be reminded why she won so many emmys. I would highly recommend watching this episode, and I am going to start watching regularly. I would love to see Erika as a series regular-and if not on this show, then another. Made me cry.


    Phyllis Fontaine DeMarco replied

    Matt Czurchy also enjoy-used to watch him on the good wife, and Emily Van Camp-used to watch her on Brothers and Sisters-which was a pretty good show and abruptly cancelled. Melina- I remember her from another show-not GL-what was that? Anyway, Erika looks beautiful and can still act with the best of them.


  3. Michael says:

    I’m glad she’s finally getting some work since she’s one of the best and always gave nuanced performances on OLTL.


  4. Llanviewer717 says:

    It was so great to see Erika Slezak again. As usual, she gave an excellent performance. I hope the cashing people of other shows wise up and use her more often. She is a natural.

    Everyday my heart aches for Viki and our beloved One Life to Live!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  5. Justin says:

    Fantastic! So glad to hear that Erika is working. She deserves to be front and center. Thanks for letting us know Michael.


  6. sean says:

    It was wonderful to see her again. there was a nice little blip when the doctor said she had worked for “40 years.” Most likely a wink to OLTL because she was there for almost 41 years. I’ve been waiting for this episode for several weeks so it made my night.
    I hope maybe she’l be back on for an episode nest season. or on something else. She’s still a good actress.


  7. Kat Hilderbrand says:

    It was SO good to see her in a new episode of something. This was such an imaginative role and I know she enjoyed performing it. I sure enjoyed watching. Now, her character just needs to come back to the hospital to teach and share her immense knowledge. Then we will get to see her on a more regular basis. She is so missed.


  8. brian says:

    So glad to see her. It is like seeing a good friend you haven’t seen for years. The interest and hope will never stop for some sort of OLTL V3.


  9. Boes says:

    I don’t watch this show but I will for the chance to see Ms Slezak.
    Man, I miss OLTL!
