CLASSIC ATWT Photo of the Day: Santos Ortega
Posted by Rob Wargo
Santos Ortega played Grandpa (Will) Hughes on AS THE WORLD TURNS from 1956 through 1976, when the actor and character both passed away. Ironically, Ortega was the same age as Don MacLaughlin, who played his son Chris.
Ortega had an extensive career in radio prior to joining AS THE WORLD TURNS, including roles on such series as MYRT AND MARGE, THE MAN I MARRIED, LIGHT OF THE WORLD, MR. AND MRS. NORTH and ELLERY QUEEN.
