The Locher Room is hosting a very special tribute to the late Michael Zaslow on Friday, March 19, at 4 p.m. ET at this YouTube link. The actor is best known for playing the complex villain Roger Thorpe on GUIDING LIGHT, though ABC soap fans might remember him as David Renaldi on ONE LIFE TO LIVE. He also had roles on SEARCH FOR TOMORROW and LOVE IS A MANY SPLENDORED THING.
Zalsow received numerous Daytime Emmy nominations for his work on GL, taking home the gold for Outstanding Lead Actor in 1994. Sadly, in 1997 the actor was diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, and passed away in December 1998.
Joining host Alan Locher for this tribute will be Zaslow’s daughter, Marika, as well as GL co-stars Maureen Garrett (Holly), Fiona Hutchison (Jenna), Liz Keifer (Blake), Kimberly Simms (Mindy), and Sherry Stringfield (Blake). They will all share their memories of the beloved daytime star, so you won’t want to miss it!
