See also

The “Queen” of Soaps, Ms. Erika Slezak has written her ‘Annual Christmas Letter’ to her adoring fans. Ms Slezak ,Victoria Lord of One Life To Live , shares her feelings about the disappointment she felt when the soaps were shut down. Her love for her co-workers and her fans is evident in every word she writes and the joy she felt being back on set is both wonderful and despairing at the same time.

Here is her letter from her fan page

Dear Friends,
Well, this year has certainly been one of ups and downs; we started last January with
such high hopes for the revivals of One Life to Live and All My Children and things
seemed to be going so well when we started production in March. Unfortunately we
produced only 8 weeks of shows, and then everything fell apart. Our boss, Jeff
Kwatinetz, is still trying to bring both shows back, but personally I think that will be a
very difficult feat to pull off. As things stand now, production on both shows has been
shut down, so there will be no more OLTL or AMC, at least not in the near future. But
we never give up hope! In any case, I loved being back at OLTL; I loved being back
with all my friends on the show and we had a wonderful time although it was short
lived. Still, I am very grateful for that brief opportunity to have played Viki once more.
Personally my life has been very busy and very good. It’s wonderful to be home and
enjoy all the pleasures of home life. I am hoping that in the next year I will be able to
find work elsewhere but if that doesn’t happen right away, I will be grateful for what I
Once again, I want thank Walter Miller for his unflagging support and for keeping this
little club afloat. I also want to thank AJ, Kit Williams and Stephen Schofield. Walter
and Stephen spent a lot of time in correspondence with Jennifer Pepperman, our most
recent producer, and were invaluable in assisting her with photos and background
information on OLTL and Victoria Lord. And in particular, I would like to thank all of you
for your incredible support during our online phase. This would never have come
about if it hadn’t been for you, and the entire cast and crew of OLTL is extremely
I wish all of you a very happy and healthy holiday season and all good wishes for the
New Year. We never know what the future holds, so perhaps I will see you all again
from the screen or the stage or wherever. Merry Christmas!
With Love,

This wonderful, extremely talented woman will work again. She is the quintessential Queen of Daytime and an actress extraordinaire and any production would benefit from having her join them.

Our wishes go back to Ms Slezak for a Happy Holiday Season and a New Year bright with opportunities and love. Merry Christmas Erika from all of your fans.
