Soap opera veteran Billy Warlock is headed to Oakdale. The actor will make an appearance on As the World Turns later this spring.
Warlock is a veteran of four different soaps, spanning all three major television networks. He began his daytime career as Ricky Driscoll on Capitol in 1984. Two years later, the actor began a run on NBC's Days of our Lives as Frankie Brady. In 1997, Warlock took on the role of AJ Quartermaine on ABC's General Hospital. He remained with the show for six years, his longest run of any of his soap stops. The actor also made occasional appearances as Ben Hollander on CBS's The Young and the Restless in 2007 and 2008.
A spokesperson for As the World Turns was initially unable to give a first airdate or character name. However, soapcentral.com has been able to confirm that Warlock's time on the show will be short-term and that he will first air in July 6. His character is named Anthony Blackthorn.
