WHERE ARE THEY NOW: JUDI EVANS LUCIANO (BETH, GL; PAULINA, AW)
This afternoon, Judi Evans Luciano will make her Oakdale debut, playing the role of Maeve on As The World Turns.
The PGP Classic Soaps Blog spoke to the daytime vet about her days on Guiding Light.
PGP: What are some of your favorite GL memories?
JEL: My original story was beautifully written and I thought it was a great message. Playing Beth and portraying her struggle and how she comes out on the other side of it as a stronger person was great. I got a lot of fan mail from young women who had similar experiences and also talked to a lot of girls to help them deal with their own issues. It was a great thing to be a part of.
Another great memory was participating in the location shoots, especially the one in New York and the one where I was with Vincent Irizzary (Lujack), riding on that beautiful Palomino horse on the beach.
PGP: Having been through the ending of AW, what are your feelings on GL's cancellation?
JEL: Shock and disbelief that such an iconic show, that came from radio to television, is coming to an end. I can’t imagine what the current cast is going through.
