Young Fairbanks actor lands role on ONE LIFE TO LIVE
David Gregory, a talented Fairbanks actor, singer and dancer, started a recurring role this week on ONE LIFE TO LIVE. He hasn't had a chance to see himself on the soap, however, because he is filming a movie right now on the East Coast directed by James L. Brooks. Gregory, 24, is one of the three sons of Wayne and Carol Gregory. All are doing well and Wayne is quick to say that Carol has made all the difference for their family.

The Gregorys are tuning into ONE LIFE TO LIVE this week, as David is expected to be on today, as well as Aug. 19, 20, 26, 27, Sept. 8 and 16.

"I haven't watched a soap in years but I guess I'm going to start now," Carol said.
