CLASSIC ATWT Photo of the Day: William Johnstone
Like Santos Ortega and Don MacLaughlin, William Johnstone, who played Judge Lowell on AS THE WORLD TURNS from 1956 to 1979, was a radio veteran. His credits included a role on Irna Phillips' early serial TODAY'S CHILDREN.
While Judge Lowell was never the center of any storyline, he was a comforting presence and source of wise counsel, particularly to his daughter-in-law Claire and granddaughter Ellen.
Does anyone out there recall how the character was phased out of the show in 1979?
