The As the World Turns Fan Club Luncheon was held on
Saturday April 26 at the Marriott Marquis in New York City. I can't
believe this was my eighth year attending! You'd think it would get old
hat at some point, but it's still a thrill to see the cast of one of my
long-time favorite shows up close and in person. And as usual, everyone
was very gracious and welcoming and appreciative of the fans.
The doors opened at 11 (or was it 10:30?), during which time
merchandise and photos were available for purchase. There were also items
from the set up for raffle, including wardrobe pieces and Oakdale newspapers
used as props. As usual, Kendra and I passed out free Henry tattoos to
anyone who wanted one. This year we had some new "Henry and
Vienna" tattoos which proved to be quite popular!
After the raffle winners were announced, and the delicious
meal was consumed, it was time for the main event - the introduction of the
cast. Michael Park (Jack) was the emcee,
and since his usual partner, Martha Byrne (Lily) has sadly left the show, he had
a new partner - his TV son Mick Hazen (Parker). The actors in attendance
this year were:
|Allie Gorenc (Sage)
|Ashley Marie Greiner
|Austin Peck (Brad)
Zenk Pinter (Barbara)
|Eileen Fulton (Lisa)
|Ellen Dolan (Margo)
William Morris (Matt)
|Ewa Da Cruz (Vienna)
Here are some photos of the cast introduction on the stage.
