Familiar Face to Return to Guiding Light image

Reva (Kim Zimmer) may have found a new friend (Soaps.com)

As Reva (Kim Zimmer) begins her recovery, she may have someone new to share her life with. On Thursday December 14th, she will have her first contact with a new character to Springfield: Cal. They shall be brought together, at first, by the fact that they are both cancer survivors, but writers have already hinted that this may develop into much more. Whether this shall be a genuine and meaningful relationship or a ploy to make Josh jealous, we'll have to wait to see.

Cal will be played by a face familiar to many GL viewers-- Paul Michael Valley. You may remember him for his short lived performance in the role of Joel Silver in 2002 on GL, or as Josef Avalon in One Life to Live. However, many will remember him in the role that once made him famous, as Ryan Harrison on the much missed drama, Another World. He played that part through the 90's while viewers obsessed over his affair with Vicky. The pair made up one of the most popular supercouples of the decade until he was shot to death by his own brother in a controversial storyline.

In his time away from daytime, Valley has been hard at work developing his craft on stage and working on a variety of primetime shows in small roles that expand his range. Let's hope that he brings his characteristic charm into Springfield and Reva's life.
