Ginger Secretly Heads West

woman redhead 3[Daytime Confidential] I’m hearing a very popular, flame-haired, former East Coast soap siren is secretly taping at one of the four West Coast sudsers. I guess that makes this her third life to live?

    Melissa Archer who played Natalie Buchanan on One Life To Live going to Days of Our Live

  • Okayeah

    I’m hoping it’s Melissa Archer (Natalie, OLTL), but unless she’s on GH I’ll never see her. :(

    Marcia Cross

    Desperate Housewives/Bree van de Kamp
    Melrose Place/ Kimberly Shaw
    …but to me she will always be big forehead Kate from One Life to Live.

    I’m not a soap opera fan, so after a lot of Googling I’m guessing…

    Melissa Archer

    One Life To Live/Natalie Buchanan

    Maybe she’ll be the new Sami Brady/Days Of Our Lives

    • ravenglass

      I know they look nothing alike(hair colour) but does that really matter in soaps? I remember watching, as a little kid, & a young character would run upstairs in footy pajamas with a teddy bear tucked under their arm & the next episode, that same character comes downstairs as a 16 year old wanting to borrow the car. So, I think a suddenly red haired Sami wouldn’t be a big deal.

        That STILL wouldn’t be as jarring as the One Life to Live recast of Blair (from the Eurasian Mia Korf to the blue-eyed blonde Kassie De Paiva)!

      • MikeInSanJose

        Reminds me of Jack Devereaux on DOOL. First (that I remember) he was dark haired Matthew Ashford (’87-’93), next thing I knew he was blond Mark Valley (’94-’97), then suddenly Matt Ashford again…

        Makes me think of “Mommie Dearest” where daughter Christina was starring on a soap and got ill and Mama Joan Crawford – 50 years older, filld in while Christina recuperated…

        Nice segue.

      Definitely not Days. Ali’s leaving, yes, and so is Sami, but they’re not recasting. My guess is Ali will be back one day in the future.

    New Show: General Hospital? I have no idea??

    General Hospital/???
    Clue being: ‘Third life to live’ …OLTL was resurrected after cancellation making it twice, so this will be the third time.

    I say Days because the tape so far ahead it makes sense for them to keep it an open secret not to spoil story lines even though the easy bet is GH because of her connections infront and behind the scenes. Hmm…Hey, maybe I’ll change my mind now that I’ve thought about it some more. YUP it’s Definitely General Hospital! Lemme go change my answer.

    New Show/Character: General Hospital/Skye Quartermaine

    Skye originated on General Hospital. Robin brought her to OLTL. She may have even brought her to the old All My Children. Ned is back on GH so Skye could return since they were involved.

  • IAmSage

    Ooops…actually meant to say “Days of Our Lives” for New Show (that will give her a third Life to Live (OLTL, the OLTL web series, DOL). Don’t know the character though

  • FairyMay9

    Melissa Archer.

    • FairyMay9

      Changing my answer. Still Melissa Archer, but it’s to Days. Hmm. No clue who she could be at this time. Too young to be any of the legacy Hortons, can’t be a Dimera. I will fall over if she’s the new Stephanie Johnson, but I suppose it’s possible She’s too old, truly, but if she plays super young, then it’s possible. If it is, that’s enormously good news for me! She’s too old to be Chelsea Brady for absolute sure. Hoping she’s not a new character.

    Actor …..the picture looks a lot like Debra Messing …Grace from Will and Grace but she will be starring as Laura in The Mysteries of Laura this fall…..ssssooo I’m going with Marcia Cross Bree Van de Kamp from Desperate Housewives .
    New Show… One Life to Live as her old character Kate Sanders. Not a soap watcher so this could totally be way off!! :-)

    Who knows? I don’t watch the soaps any more, but the old show sounds like One Life to Live, which I thought was cancelled.
    New show: GH, B&B, Y&R–probably, I heard their executive producer is a real piece of work.
