OLTL Fan Club Luncheon
by Maryann Raymond
Congratulations to Ben and Viki Davidson (Mark Derwin and Erika
Slezak) who were chosen as "Best Couple" by the One Life To
Live Fan Club again this year. The winners were announced on Sunday, May 6th
at the Annual One Life To Live Fan Club Luncheon.
Viki and Ben were sole winners in the Best Couple category this year,
overtaking Bo and Nora who were tied by Viki and Ben last year and had
previously won this award for several years.
Mark Derwin along with Kale Brown were chosen as "Best
Supporting Actor" again this year. Congratulations to them both for their
hard work and great performances this past year. Their portrayal as brothers Ben
and Sam was the absolute best in Daytime. Kale was notified of his win and
posted this response on his official website. It's reprinted here with the
permission of his FC President, Allie Jenkins.
"Thanks to all of you from the bottom of my heart. I loved playing
Sam Rappaport for you and am very happy that you enjoyed it. And, yeah, to share
it once again with brother Derwin conjures only one thought in my mind:...Who's Mark Derwin?"
Kale (whose no longer on the show) continues to be greatly missed by his many
fans and former castmates.
"Wild About Harry"!
"Harry The Hook" who is portrayed by Ed Kershan was a big hit
at the Fan Club Luncheon. He was delighted and thrilled by the fans response to
him and the standing ovation he received when introduced. Ed made his first
appearance in the recurring role of "Harry The Hook Henderson", Ben's old mob
buddy, last year on the 7th of June, 2000. Lets hope he makes many more
appearances on the show again real soon.
