Kassie DePaiva (Blair) addressed her upcoming appearance on “GH” on her blog. “I must say, the ads and the press release by ABC is a little misleading. Frank Valentini, ‘GH’s’ EP, asked me to come out for a couple of shows in February and I’m thrilled. Not only will I get to work with a fantastic cast…but a little piece of ‘OLTL’ lives on. That makes me very happy. And who knows where it will lead. Once the Mannings come to town anything is possible. I wish everyone at ‘GH’ the best. No one loves Daytime more than Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati [head writer] and no one works harder than those two men. ‘GH’ is in good hands and hopefully ABC will let ‘GH’ live on! See ya’ll soon in Port Charles!” she stated.
Kristen Alderson (Starr) tweeted that she will begin taping at “General Hospital” on January 27.

Some of the characters from canceled soap “One Life to Live” will live on after the series goes dark on January 13. ABC has announced that Kassie DePaiva (Blair), Roger Howarth (Todd), Michael Easton (John) and Kristen Alderson (Starr) will all be moving to Port Charles. They won’t be coming as new characters though. All of the fan faves will be keeping their Llanview personae for the move.
“General Hospital” executive producer, Frank Valentini, also formerly “One Life to Live,” said, “We have a very exciting story planned for the citizens of Port Charles, with Sonny Corinthos [Maurice Benard] at the center of it! I am confident viewers and fans alike will be excited for the arrival of John (Easton), Starr (Alderson), Blair (DePaiva) and Todd (Howarth). Incorporating characters from ‘One Life to Live’ continue the legacy of the show as we weave them into ‘General Hospital.’”
The storylines featuring the former Llanview residents will enter production late in January.
