Actress Kim Zimmer is returning to the soaps! Zimmer, a four-time Emmy winner for her role as Reva Shayne on 'Guiding Light,' will officially join 'One Life to Live' this fall as Echo diSavoy. Actually, she's re-joining -- the actress played Echo in 1983, around the time she was cast on 'Guiding Light.'
Kim will first appear on Oct. 1 as Echo, and she'll be involved with a couple of powerhouse Emmy-winning veterans of 'One Life to Live' -- specifically Erika Slezak (Viki) and Robin Strasser (Dorian). That should be potent.
Zimmer will also cross paths with former 'Guiding Light' leading man Jerry ver Dorn. On 'GL,' ver Dorn's character, Ross Marler, had many encounters with Zimmer's Reva -- although they never actually married.
As Clint on 'OLTL, Jerry will surely be involved with Echo. In fact, since Clint's currently single, the two could even have a romance.
Zimmer has spent the past year since 'GL' went off the air doing theater in the New York City area.
