OLTL icon Erika Slezak will guest star on a gritty, upcoming medical drama this spring!
Take Two and Call Her in The Morning
Slezak’s guest appearance on The Resident is slated for March or Early April, according to her official fan club president, Walter Miller. The show premieres on January 21st, 2o18 on Fox.
Slezak will be on the ninth episode of the gritty new drama, which centers on a idealistic first-year resident who meets a tough-as-nails fellow resident who leads him through the deep ethical and moral conflicts doctors struggle with every day.
“All we want to do is help our patients. But what they don’t teach us in medical school is how many ways there are to do harm,” the tough resident says. Sounds intriguing, right, dear Soap Cities readers? See the full trailer below.
Slezak has already shot her part on The Resident.
“Erika said her time in Atlanta was very busy. The cast and crew were great, as was the director. The entire experience was a lot of fun, Erika said,” according to Miller.
She show also stars Matt Druzy of The Good Wife fame, and Emily Van Camp, who wowed ’em in Revenge!
What a History!
Slezak, as all you die-hard One Life to Live (OLTL) fans know, played Victoria Buchanan for 41 years on the iconic ABC soap. In that time she married multiple times, edited the two newspaper, sparred with her nemesis, Dorian (Robin Strasser), and battled a devastating mental illness, among many other things.
Slezak achieved the honor of winning the second-most most Daytime Emmy awards for her work in the same role She won in the category of Lead Actress in a Daytime Series six times for her portrayal of Vicki. Only Anthony Geary has more wins in one role for General Hospital’s Luke Spencer.
Slezak, under Agnes Nixon’s legendary head writing, broke new ground by being the first actress to portray a woman–a lead character on OLTL, no less–who suffered from Dissociative Identity Disorder, as a result of years of sexual abuse inflicted upon her as a child by her father.
