If you didn’t already love Van Hansis, you’re going to love him even this much more!
After the talented actor who won the hearts of millions of soap fans worldwide for his portrayal of Luke Snyder on As the World Turns publicly came out the other day in a quote from his latest interview in The Fight, Van took to his facebook page last evening to thank everyone for their support and love.
Van stated: “Thank you all for your warm comments and your years of support. It means so much. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.”
Hansis as Oakdale’s Luke played the first male gay character on daytime soaps that was a major character connected to a major family, wherein often times previously the gay characters came and went and were not anchored to the story in many ways. Of course, years later we now have Days of our Lives Will (Guy Wilson) and Sonny (Freddie Smith) carrying the LGBT torch on daytime soaps.
Van will also return for season two of the hit web series, EastSiders which just received an Indie Series Award for Best Ensemble Drama. EastSiders is currently having its season two KickStarter campaign!
