Helen Wagner Passes Away at 91

On May 1, As the World Turns star, Helen Wagner (Nancy Hughes) passed away.

Wagner played the role of the Hughes matriarch for 54 years. She spoked the very first words when As the World Turns premiered on April 2, 1956.

Born in Lubbock, Texas on September 3, 1918, Wagner got her start in show business when she caught the eye of Oscar Hammerstein, while working at the St. Louis Municipal Opera. Hammerstein cast her in the Broadway production of Sunny River.

It is the role of Nancy Hughes she will forever be remembered.

“All of us at As The World Turns are deeply saddened by Helen’s passing,” Christopher Goutman, executive producer of As the World Turns, said in a statement. “She is loved by generations of fans and while we will miss her greatly, Helen will always remain the heart and soul of As The World Turns.”

Wagner is in the Guinness Book of World Records for playing a character the longest in television history.

Lynn Herring Returns to Daytime

lynn herringIt’s been six years, since we seen Lynn Herring on our tv screen, but that is about to change when the former General Hospital and Port Charles vet join the cast of As  The World Turns. Lynn will play Henry’s mother, Audrey.

Herring was a daytime staple when she played Lucy Coe on General Hospital and later on the spin-off Port Charles. She faded from the daytime scene when the latter was cancelled in 2003.

It is good to see her back on the daytime. I can’t wait to see what she will bring to As The World Turns.
