Real Life Brother and Sister to Play Half Brother and Sister in Llanview!

Stage Vet Patti Perkins Gets OLTL Contract Role!

David Tom (ex-Billy, The Young and the Restless ) seen here in a publicity photo by Bob Lamb, has accepted a role on One Life to Live, assuming the part of Paul Cramer from departing portrayer Brock Cuchna.

Initially hesitant about relocating from sunny Los Angeles to New York City, where OLTL is filmed, the Emmy-winning actor took a cue from his real-life sibling Heather Tom, who plays Paul's half-sister Kelly, and will make the move for his newest contract role.

Far as we know, this is the first time in soaps recent history that a real-life brother and sister have appeared as family at the same time on the same soap.

OLTL has yet to announce Tom's first airdate. 

In other OLTL news...

Stage vet Patti Perkins has been cast as Doc Haver's mum, Marlena. Mommy dearest reluctantly meets with Commissioner Buchanan and John McBain to discuss her disturbed son. Perkins originated the role of Molly MacGregor in the Broadway version of The Full Monty, and made a guest appearance on Law and Order. Look for her to offer insight into Stephen's past on March 8.

Behind the scenes Days of our Lives: Production Designer

As Production Designer on Days of our Lives, Dan Olexiewicz knows how to construct a set. Yes! He is the man behind the famous Horton Town Square, one of the most popular sets used on the show and probably the largest. I mean who would not want to shop there with those unique stores? Or the new TBD Bar where everyone gathers to talk about their trials and tribulations, or plot their next move.

In layman's terms, Olexiewicz controls the designing of the sets. "Yes! I do (Laughing). I do the color scheme, I determine what kind of furniture will be used, and I collaborate with the set decorator giving me a feel of what needs to be done," he said. "I usually begin with a plan that is turned into a floor plan, and we go from there."
