Did the actress (that plays Natalia) pretape scenes before leaving on ml, or did she really return to taping that quickly?

Columbus said...

Natalia cannot return soon enough to fix this once spectacular storyline which has gone to shit.

Southern said...

Natalia, come home!!!

Michele said...

Is this the definite return date? I saw Aug 7th in some places also

Jessica Leccia only took a month maternity leave so she could finish out the Otalia storyline.

Dudes??? The 17th? Really. Yikes.

Poor JL only got a 4 week maternity leave, but Natalia's off the screen for 6 weeks. That's not how this was supposed to work!

DJ Bixby said...

srsly sounds messed up. why would she be gone on screen longer than she was gone from set? i was hoping to see her next week:(

Ginger said...

Natalia come back and fix this mess!!

Lu said...

Yay! Natalia's coming back. I really hope Olivia and Natalia get a happy, or at least hopeful ending.

Thanks for the picture.

August 17th? What?!

It feels like she's been off the TV for 2 months but Jessica Leccia only had 4-5 weeks of maternity leave. I hope this information is somehow wrong. And if it's not, why would you guys keep her away for so long? So we have to watch more Frank and Marina and Mallet?

Thanks for the picture. And thanks so much CBS, P&G-TeleNext, EW or whoever else has been responsible for gutting the Otalia s/l. Much respect to JL & CC for rising above the drivel they've been asked to play out.

8/17 was the day Luke and Noah first kissed two years ago on ATWT. I hope and pray that Otalia fans are in for something similar. Shame on PGP and GL if they're not.

marley said...

its going to take A LOT to fix what GL screwed up as far as Natalia's character. At the moment, she doesn't deserve to come back.

It doesn't seem like Olivia and Natlia will be getting a kiss,which is all their fans wanted.I'm straight but I'm disgusted by CBS and P&G's treatment of this couple.To do the same thing to them that they did to Nuke after fans got so upset about the kissing ban shows that they don't care about the fans at all. I hate to think that the oldest soaps last days will be tainted with homophobic double standards.

Neixa said...

Just want Natalia to come home!!!

Rebbie said...

This time KISS your girl, Natalia! Olivia has been kissing everyone in town (man and woman) since you left. She may as well kiss the person she is in love with just once in her lifetime. Down with CBS/P&G's homophobic double standards!

The pic is different but I don't think we will see this scene again with the same clothing like before.
