The Locher Room is hosting a special online family reunion with GUIDING LIGHT mother and daughter Patti D’Arbanville (Selena) and Tammy Blanchard (Drew) on Thursday, March 18, at 3 p.m. ET at this YouTube link!
GL fans remember Blanchard as Drew Jacobs, and D’Arbanville as her mother, Selena Davis, back in the late ‘90s. Since leaving the soap, Blanchard enjoyed an Emmy-winning role as young Judy Garland in Judy Garland: Me and My Shadow, and Tony nominations for her work on Broadway in Gypsy and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. She also earned a Grammy nomination for her role of Audrey in the Off-Broadway revival of Little Shop of Horrors!
While GL was Blanchard’s big break, D’Arbanville was discovered by Andy Warhol when she was 13 and has worked steadily in film and television around the world ever since. She earned a Drama-League Award for Best Actress for her performance in Italian American Reconciliation, but is perhaps best known for her roles on primetime series like THE SOPRANOS, NEW YORK UNDERCOVER, THIRD WATCH, and RESCUE ME.
These two talented actresses will have memories of Springfield to share, but also lots more to chat about with fans, so don’t miss it!
