Extractions: I've always loved witches," chuckles Robin Strasser , who is joining PASSIONS as a 300-year-old which named Hecuba on October 23 . "I spoke to [ PASSIONS's ] costume designer and she said, 'The character lives down in a cave, so I was thinking burlap,' and I said, 'Let's stop right there. Burlap?' So, we're going to work on something." The daytime vet confides that she reached out to former soap ONE LIFE TO LIVE (where she played Dorian on and off from 1979-2000) before signing with the competition. "I frankly had been carrying a lot of grief and separation around about ONE LIFE ," she says softly. "My agent had a very clarifying discussion with a very highly placed executive at ABC, and I said, 'So, what's the upshot?' My agent said, 'I think we'd better look elsewhere.' Once I digested that information, three jobs came in!" Strasser booked an episode of Darren Star's new show, GROSSE POINTE , and a movie with William Shatner, as well as the PASSIONS gig which she already loves. "I went in and visited the beautiful PASSIONS set," she reports with a laugh. "It's a country club, pardon me! Everybody is so relaxed and laid-back and friendly, and they were so happy to see me: 'What are you doing here? Are you going to be Hecuba?' It felt so nice to be wanted. Lisa [Hesser, executive producer] sat me down, and we had a wonderful talk. I just wanted to work. I was ready."

Extractions: Dorian saved Victor's life when he had a heart attack? Much to Viki's chagrin, Dorian used this as an excuse to hang around Victor, who later married her. Victor died June 11' 1976, with Viki convinced that her stepmother knew more about Victor's final moments than she let on. Dorian chased after Viki's then-husband, Joe Riley, before, during and after Joe and Viki's separation? Joe and Viki reconciled. Dorian had an affair with Clint (Viki was still In mourning for Joe at the time). When Clint and Viki married, Dorian was jealous. Dorian encouraged Tina to go public with the news that she was Victor's illegitimate daughter? The revelation caused yet another appearance by Viki's alter ego, Niki Smith. Unbeknownst to Viki (who was separated from Clint), Dorian was staying at the same ski lodge where Viki traveled with her new love, Sloan? Dorian called Clint and told him that Viki had broken her leg skiing. Clint walked in on Viki and Sloan moments after they consummated their relationship. Dorian convinced one of Sloan's college students, Emily, to press charges that he had sexually harassed her as part of a hate campaign against Sloan (and by association, Viki) for raising questions in his book, Lord of the Manor, about her role In Victor's death?

Extractions: Menopause Actress SHARYL ATTKISSON: And speaking of hot flashes, you don't normally associate them with sexy, soap opera divas. But one notorious TV vixen has cast herself in a compassionate new role, helping women deal with menopause. HealthWeek's Nancy Olson has her story. NANCY OLSON: As the sexy, sassy, sneaky Dorian Lord Hayes on ABC's One Life to Live, actress Robin Strasser has acted out many of life's experiences. But this Emmy-award winner had no script for how to prepare for the onset of menopause ROBIN STRASSER: My estrogen level just fell like an elevator in a shaft and I felt totally unprepared and out of control. NANCY OLSON: Hoping the symptoms would be mild, Strasser tried to ignore them. But soon it became impossible ROBIN STRASSER: I've got to learn 50 pages of dialogue a day sometimes and I've got to be able to hold on to it even when I'm under pressure. But I found that when adrenaline kicked in, I would get a hot flash. And a hot flash would wipe out the screen of my memory and I'd be going (fans herself) very hot here, I can't remember a thing, and that was scary. Plain ol' scary. NANCY OLSON: Strasser joined the thousands of women looking for answers about menopause. Her research led to the development of Menopause SOS, a videotape series she calls an encyclopedia of information about menopause.

Extractions: Celebrating the talented actresses of One Life to Live Dateline: 01/06/00 Soap star fans can basically make or break an actor or actress when it comes to their roles on daytime soap operas. If their characters are not believable, or genuine, in time, fan support will run thin. So for this article I wanted to let You , the fans, get a chance to express how you feel about OLTL most talented actresses on the show. In the last fan opinion poll for Best Actress of 1999 so far Robin Strasser(Dorian) takes the lead. Following right behind her, is Erin Torpey(Jessica). Erika Slezak(Viki) and Linda Dano(Rae) are next, followed by Kassie DePaiva(Blair), Florencia Lozano(Tea), Hillary B. Smith(Nora), and Gina Tognoni(Kelly). Robin Strasser is by far considered one of the hardest working women of One Life to Live , leading the show's more exciting storylines. Strasser's character has been in the frontline for years, and will continue to be in the future, even though her character will be recast. In fact, Victoria Wyndham has been approached already to possibly take over the Dorian Lord role. Strasser, the 1982 winner of the Emmy Award for Outstanding Actress in a Daytime Drama, will surely be missed by all. Strasser stated she will be focusing her attention on health issues for women.

Extractions: Soap characters who have left the canvas of One Life to Live Written by Katherine Thurston Soap fans are no strangers to seeing characters disappear off the canvas of their favorite show, in fact it happens quite often. The rich kid who up and leaves for college, or the rebellious teen who decides they would be better off living with their Granny in Iowa. Or how about the women who decide they need to see the world and with their ex-boyfriend in tow head off to explore the African jungle. Or worst yet, the array of despicable con men who must leave the country immediately before being arrested. Some of these "Missing In Action" characters are never heard from again, others are briefly mentioned occasionally, and some eventually manage to reappear just in the nick of time.

Page 1 of 5 NBC-PassionsLive: Robin Strasser: Hello, everybody! 'm really thrilled to have this opportunity to chat with you. I'm still computer illiterate, so doing something like this is as close to being a citizen in the new millennium as I get computer-wise. I have a few people I want to say hi toa special hello to the folks that used to call my hotline. I've reinstated it, and there's a new telephone number Hi hotliners and all the people who have written to me since I left "One Life to Live" in February. And of course, all you "Passions" fans who maybe don't have a clue who I am, and are just being cordial and giving me a chance to work my way into your affections now that I'm visiting Harmony.

Robin Strasser: Trouble, trouble, and that's double trouble and triple trouble! Hecuba has referred to almost all the characters on the show, and not in pleasant terms, so there doesn't seem to be anybody she likes or is fond of. In fact, she seems to have a real issue with a number of Harmony's finest citizens, but that's the stuff of drama!

Extractions: Dated: January 2, 2001 Toil And Trouble Ended Her LIFE, But Robin Strasser Is Making New Magic On Passions It's a funny thing, interviewing Robin Strasser. She seems to be wholly incapable of self-censorship, even when the talk turns to the most private aspects of her personal life. Nothing is off-limits: sex, health, work, money, therapy. If you've got the nerve to ask, she's got the nerve to answer. For example, she is 55 years old. She does not drink not because she has a problem with alcohol, but simply because it doesn't agree with her. She has never had a face-lift, but isn't ruling anything out. She is post-menopausal (two years and counting ), lactose intolerant (a favorite treat is Soylicious) and twice divorced. And at this point in her life, she is practicing celibacy. "I don't want this to sound preachy at all, but I am really looking for a more spiritual kind of relationship, the deepest kind of soul-to-soul communication. I think that is so sexy. When I find that, then I'll get out the black lace underwear." In other words, she's a reporter's dream, even if after a while, her candor generates certain conflicting feelings: You're mostly praying that the tape recorder doesn't malfunction, but a teensy part of you the part that stands in awe of her frankness and is starting to love her for it, journalistic impartiality be damned hopes she shuts up for her own good.
