Robin Strasser days appearance
dool

Soaps.com has learned actress Robin Strasser, who played the indomitable Dorian Lord on One Life to Live, took to her Twitter to tease about an opportunity she couldn’t pass up. With a photo of her seen in the hair and makeup room, getting made up at the Days of our Lives studio with her dog, we’re likely going to see Strasser within six months, unless she’s been taping for a while in which case she’ll be seen sooner. We’re speculating that she could be a recast of Louise Sorel. In 2017, fans got their hopes up after Strasser seemed to leak a Days appearance, but that didn’t pan out and she instead shared the return of her friend, Louise Sorel, to Days as Vivian Alamain. In her recent tweet, which she posted on Super Bowl Sunday, Strasser used a football analogy to explain she was “taking time out for a good reason” and didn’t want to “fumble or let the team down.”

Soaps.com will keep readers updated.
