As "One Life to Live" prepares to celebrate its 40th Anniversary on ABC, acclaimed actress Andrea Evans returns to the series to play one of daytime television's most beloved bad girls, Tina Lord Roberts, starting in June. Ms. Evans originated the role in 1978 and played the popular character until 1990. During that run she received an Emmy Award nomination for her wonderfully devious portrayal. Tina's return to Llanview means the kind of trouble only she can create and will open the door for another fan favorite to return.

"Even though Andrea has not appeared on OLTL since 1990, she has remained among the most requested characters to return to the show," said executive producer Frank Valentini. "I welcome her home to OLTL and to the role where she made an indelible mark on our audience."
"For many years, both fans of mine and 'One Life to Live' have wanted me to return to the show, said Ms. Evans. "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 and I'm looking forward to working once again with all my friends and 'family' at 'One Live to Live.'"

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 Davidson (Erika Slezak) and her brother Todd (Trevor St. John). Her appearance in town will spark a major story that will take place throughout the summer.

Ms. Evans is one of the genres most dynamic performers and in addition to "One Life to Live", she has appeared on "The Young and the Restless," "The Bold and the Beautiful" and most recently "Passions." In addition to her daytime roles, Andrea has an impressive list of credits spanning film, primetime, radio and theatre. In addition to her acting career, she dedicates her time to such charitable organizations as The City of Hope and numerous animal rights groups.

Ms. Evans continues to reside in CA with her husband Steve and young daughter Kylie Lyn.

Emmy Award-winning "One Life to Live," created by Agnes Nixon, was launched July 15, 1968. Frank Valentini executive-produces. Ron Carlivati is the headwriter. The popular drama consistently ranks among the top five in the key demographic of Women 18-49. "One Life to Live" airs MONDAY-FRIDAY (2:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Soap opera star Andrea Evans, who is currently seen on “Passions,” will guest star on the new VH1 reality series “I Know My Kid’s A Star.”

On the April 24th episode, which is the sixth installment, Ms. Evans will act in scenes with young talents whose performances will be judged and critiqued by former child star and executive producer of this series, Danny Bonaduce, and Hollywood casting director and manager, Marki Costello. They will be looking for one great, aspiring, triple-threat stage-hungry kid who they are seeking to identify as a potential star, as well as training their parents to deal with the difficulties of show business.

The eight episode weekly one-hour series, which premieres March 20th at 10 PM, will feature 10 parent/child teams living in a house in Los Angeles, willing to do whatever it takes to breakthrough in Hollywood. Each episode presents a different challenge for the kids, whether it’s auditioning for a cartoon voice-over, trying out for a part in a horror flick, being asked to cry on cue during an audition etc. In each episode, the parents will also have their own challenge without their kids to see if they are ready to handle the business of Hollywood. In the end, one team will emerge as the winner and receive $50,000 in cash as well as having the child given a one year contract for representation by Marki Costello.
