Any Soap Opera Fans Out There?

If so, one of my former students, Sarah Glendening just joined the cast of All My Children as Marissa. Today was here first episode. I have it on my DVR and just fast forwarded through it to catch a few of her scenes. She looks fantastic and I love seeing her do well and get roles. This is the first role I have seen her in on television where she didn't end up murdered (I saw the Law & Order: Criminal Intent and an episode of Cold Case where she was Corpse of the Week...Cold Case was really cool as she was the lead playing a hot shot female pilot in WWII).

We both did shows in local community theaters and we did a couple of shows together in our copius free time, including My Fair Lady and a revue called Broadway Rock and Roll.

So you go Sarah...I am looking forward to bigger and better things in the future!

I kept reloading the page, but her picture wouldn't show in your blog. Then it suddenly appeared.

I don't watch soaps - mom is addicted to Days of Our Lives. Good luck, nonetheless, to Sarah Glendening.

I was a fan of The Guiding Light for many years. My mom got me hooked at an early age. I found out while working, that I could watch only in the summer and not miss a beat. They eventually took that particular show off the air. (It was the longest running soap ever!) I have no interest in looking for a replacement. The internet takes up way too much of my time as it is.

I wish your friend the very best! Seems that once they get an established part and prove their worth, they are golden. Even if their assigned character meets their demise.... some other show readily picks them up as a new character.
