Episode Description

If you've watched a soap opera in the past 30 years, it's a pretty good bet that you're familiar with the work of Robin Mattson. On Friday, April 6, just four days after she makes her much-anticipated return to General Hospital, the Emmy-nominated actress makes her first appearance on Soap Central Live. Robin started her incredible daytime career as Hope Bauer on Guiding Light. She became even more of a household name as General Hospital's Heather Webber, a woman who sold her newborn on the black market! In 1983, Robin earned her first Daytime Emmy nomination -- but it wouldn't be her last. During an eight-year-run on Santa Barbara, Robin earned three consecutive Daytime Emmy nominations in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category. All My Children fans know Robin as Janet "From Another Planet" Green. Robin has also had short but memorable roles on As the World Turns and Days of our Lives. Plus, author Alina Adams returns to SCL to discuss her latest soap opera release, Soap Opera 451: A Time Capsule of Daytime Drama's Greatest Moments. What moments were selected as the greatest moments in daytime history? What are your choices for the best soap moments of all time? Call in and discuss it with us on-air!
