RUBY BRIGHT & MARCO DANE, ONE LIFE TO LIVE
For a soap opera's soap-opera creation, Ruby Bright was a heavenly delight, a character from ONE LIFE TO LIVE's soap-within-a-soap, FRATERNITY ROW. Played by actress Megan Gordon, Ruby was a change of pace for the intelligent, blond actress -- a gum-chewing, tacky brunette with a Brooklyn accent. When Megan went to an Atlantic City casino to research her role (gussied up as Ruby, no less), she met Marco Dane, OLTL's hustler from way back, and he thought she was for real. Well, wasn't she?
And so began the most entertaining and crazy love story of the year. Ruby and Marco made us laugh with their great comic timing and touched us with their true concern for each other. In every Megan, there is a Ruby, and Jessica Tuck had a ball finding her. She displayed an unexpected flair for gritty comedy. Gerald Anthony made a triumphant return to the show where he always caused so much trouble.
