BEFORE THEY HAD ONE LIFE

In 1986, OLTL's Clint received that ever-popular, long-running character shock -- a long-lost son, complete with his long-lost mother.

For Clint, the son was Cord (John Loprieno) and the mother was Maria (Barbara Luna). Complications ensued.

John Loprieno went on to briefly play Brad on As The World Turns. But his first daytime role, in 1985, was as Danny on Search For Tomorrow.

In episode #8721, up now on the AOL/PGP Classic Soap Channel, Danny takes T.R. (Jane Krakowski) to the circus.

And who should be performing among the horses, jugglers and clowns, but Anna, played by none other than Barbara Luna!

On SFT, Anna is, ironically, the mother of Ryder (Adam Storke), Danny's rival for TR's affections. (And if you want a real blast from the past, check out whom she's caught making out with in the last part of the episode. It's yet another member of the P&G soap family!)

In this episode, Ryder is wearing a sequined bolero jacket, Anna is draped in feathers and Danny has on a pink shirt and a Member's Only leather jacket.

You really can't miss it.
