Crystal Chappell Still Here are a pair of tidbits of interest for any Guiding Light or Passions follower:
  • Crystal Chappell (Olivia) will be sticking around Springfield. In a statement to fans on her official Web site message board, the actress writes:

"I am so happy to be staying on Guiding Light for another year. They are my family and hopefully, Olivia will find her own light. Regardless of how some people feel about Olivia, I have always appreciated all the fans of the show."

Chappell joined the show back in 1999.

  • Also, a rep for Andrea Evans confirms that she has re-signed with Passions and will continue to play Rebecca when the show makes its jump to DirecTV in September. This silences quashing rumors that Evans may reprise her popular role of Tina on One Life to Live.

The Emmy-nominated actress has portrayed Gwen's mother for the past seven years.
