OLTL Brings Back Susan Haskell

GL's Aubrey Dollar Moves On

It's been confirmed that Susan Haskell (Marty Saybrooke) will return to One Life to Live in February.  Haskell's return is slated to coincide with Todd Manning's latest rape trial. A decade ago, Haskell's character was the victim of a gang-rape led by Todd. Now, ten years later, history is repeating itself: Todd is once again on trial for rape. This time, however, the accuser is his wife, Blair.
 
The previous rape storyline earned Haskell a Daytime Emmy in 1994 in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category. Haskell, who joined One Life to Live in 1992, later left the show in 1997 however she hasn't been completely away from daytime during her seven year OLTL absence. In 2001, Haskell appeared as Granya Thornhart on ABC's Port Charles. Granya was said to be the late sister of former One Life to Life character Patrick Thornhart and Port Charles resident Ian Thornhart. Look for Susan Haskell to make her short-term return on February 16th.

On Guiding Light, Aubrey Dollar (Marina Cooper) will exit at the conclusion of her contract. 

Dollar was the fourth actress to play the part of the daughter of Frank and Eleni Andros Cooper, joining the cast in January 2002.  But she won't be the last.

Said to be up for the role of a recast Marina is former The Young and the Restless star Ashley Bashioum. Bashioum earned praise from fans of Y&R for her portrayal of Mackenzie Browning from February 1999 through February 2002. Upon her departure from Y&R, Bashioum expressed a desire to focus on acting opportunities outside of daytime television.
 
While other actresses have also auditioned for the role, a spokesperson for Guiding Light was unable to comment on who is being considered to replace Dollar.

Dollar's final air date has not yet been determined.
