The parade of ONE LIFE TO LIVE veterans who will be returning to Llanview before the soap signs off of ABC in January has begun: a spokesperson for the show confirms that fan favorites John Loprieno (ex-Brad, AS THE WORLD TURNS) and Andrea Evans (Tawny, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) will be bringing one-time supercouple Cord and Tina back to town in September. The actors were last seen on-screen in 2008 when OLTL celebrated its 40th anniversary.
But what does the OLTL return mean for Evans’ status on B&B, where she’s been recurring as Amber’s white-trash mother? Turns out, she’s just taking a brief hiatus from the CBS sudser. “We’re thrilled for Andrea and her fans that she gets to return to OLTL before they go off the air to reprise a role that started her illustrious career in daytime television,” says a rep for B&B. “We’re also happy to report that Andrea remains a part of the B&B family portraying the character of Tawny Moore.”
