It's a case of crossover mania once again for ABC as a former One Life to Live star reprises her role - but not in Llanview where you might expect.
Susan Haskell (Marty Saybrooke) joins the cast of Port Charles beginning April 18th. One Life to Live viewers know that on the day Marty married Patrick Thornhart in 1997, Patrick was shot and presumed dead by most of the citizens in Llanview. Patrick and a pregnant Marty secretly left town to go to see his family in Ireland and have not been heard from since.
Haskell's arrival in Llanview is said to bring about some very surprising news for Ian.
Haskell earned the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in 1994. Since her departure from One Life to Live in 1997, Haskell has starred in the film Mrs. Winterbourne with Brendan Fraser and had a recurring role on the TV series JAG. She recently finished production on an independent feature called No Turning Back, which also stars Lindsay Price (ex-An-Li, All My Children; ex Michael, The Bold and the Beautiful). Haskell is also the real-life love of her past and present co-star Thorsten Kaye (Ian).
The length of Haskell's stay in Port Charles is unknown. Sources within the show say that the actress will only appear for a few "special episodes." Other reports say that Marty won't even appear in Port Charles; she'll appear in flashbacks.
