OLTL's Jennifer Pepperman talks Clint wreaking havoc and a big return:
The show's executive producer chatted with Soaps.com about what fans have to look forward to, teased a big return, and explained why the writers halted swearing in character dialogue. Read our Interview with Jennifer Pepperman for the inside scoop!
During a conference call Erika Slezak (Viki Banks) and Kassie DePaiva (Blair Cramer) were asked who they would bring back to interact with their characters. Slezak shared, "Wow. I would bring back both my sons, Kevin and Joey." DePaiva chimed in, "Gosh I would - well it would definitely be Max. You know, because I just think Max Holden was a fan favorite and I think that there's still a lot of untold stories. So yeah and he could stir a little trouble up between Todd and Blair."
Renee Elise Goldsberry in I'm Getting My Act Together And Taking It On The Road:
Renee Elise Goldsberry (ex-Evangeline Williamson) will appear in five performances of the production "I'm Getting My Act Together And Taking It On The Road." The audience will watch as a former pop-star sets aside the romantic ballads of her past in order to make a comeback with songs that imitate women's changing roles and attitudes. Visit City Center (131 West 55th Street in New York City, New York) for tickets for the July 24 through 27 performances.
Todd and Blair's scene song:
If you liked the song that played at the end of yesterday's episode during Todd and Blair's kissed it's titled "Fire Escape" by Hotel Cinema, as tweeted by the show's associate producer.
A couple of people asked … the song that plays during today's final #TNB scene is called "Fire Escape" by Hotel Cinema and it's on iTunes!— Jared Kaplan (@JaredKaplan) July 15, 2013

One Life To Live actor fun fact:
Robert Newman, best known for his twenty-eight year run on the now defunct CBS soap "Guiding Light" landed the role of Joshua Lewis during the time he'd been waiting to hear back from "One Life To Live." Newman had auditioned for an under-five Llanview role, which means under five lines. Good thing he jumped on the CBS offer, as his Springfield character will forever go down in soap opera history.
