Daytime TV, 1970s

Erika's effervescent personality and her million-dollar smile make her a joy to be with. She adds the very same cheer to OLTL.
"My favorite holiday is Christmas. I've always had good Christmases:' Erika Slezak, who plays Viki Riley on One Life To Live, told me before leaving her studio dressing room to get us some
coffee. "My least favorite holiday is New Year's Eve. I find it boring and I don't like to go out that night."
Erika's dressing room is very personalized. There are a half-dozen candid photos of castmates taped at one end of the wall-long mirror, an assortment of dainty china tea cups and utilitarian coffee mugs and a small coffee pot which sits on its own heater at the end of the long dressing table. There's memorabilia lining the back of the table itself to complete the homey atmosphere.
