Andrea Evans by Michael Bezjian/
One Life to Live will welcome back to its canvas a most special guest as the ABC serial prepares to mark its 40th anniversary: Come June, Andrea Evans will return as Tina Lord Roberts, the role for which she received a Daytime Emmy nod in 1990. Tina's arrival not only will bring with it the trouble that typically follows Viki's half sis, but also will open the door for another fan favorite to resurface. Hmmm....

"Even though Andrea has not appeared on OLTL since 1990, she has remained among the most requested characters to return to the show," says exec producer Frank Valentini. "I welcome her home to OLTL and to the role where she made an indelible mark on our audience."

Says Evans in her own statement, "For many years, both fans of mine and One Life to Live have wanted me to return. Now that the timing is right, I'm thrilled to be returning to the role of Tina, which I've always held near and dear to my heart."

Some teasers from the folks at ABC:

" "Tina has endured a life-altering experience and will have a mysterious connection to one of Llanview's most powerful citizens."

" "Upon her return, Tina will first cross paths with her sister Viki and her brother Todd. Her appearance in town will spark a major story that will take place throughout the summer."

What's your take? Were you beginning to think Evans would never return to One Life? Excited to see her interact with Trevor St. John's Todd? Who in Llanview do you think she has a "mysterious connection" to? - Matt Mitovich
