Will Robin Strasser Leave One Life to Live?

robin stresserAnother soap vet can be added to the list of stars that the networks is asking to take a pay cut.  One Life to Live’s Robin Strasser (Dorian) is in contract negotiations and both sides has come to a stalemate.

Strasser left a message on her fan hotline where she talked about the  negotiations.

“I know that it is a bigger pay cut than other actors have been asked to take. And anybody who has been asked to take a larger pay cut was making two or three times as much as I was. In 2002, when Frank Valentini broke the blacklist and got me back on the show, that necessitated me taking a 63% paycut. What I am seeing is something that feels disprespectful, something that feels inequitable, I know it to be inequitable, and it makes me feel discriminated against.”

Strasser has announced that the powers that be has asked her to wait before making any further comments about the contract negotiations until they return from vacation.

I hope that both sides can come to an agreement. I want Robin to stay on OLTL. I can’t imagine the show without her.
