OLTL's Erika Slezak Celebrates Milestone

Happy St. Patrick's Day and Happy Anniversary to OLTL's Erika Slezak (Viki), who celebrates 40 years in Llanview today, March 17! Digest and Weekly were there as the cast and crew gathered at the set this afternoon to honor the actress with a surprise party, highlight reel and video tribute featuring some of her OLTL cast members as well as CASTLE's Nathan Fillion (ex-Joey), the ladies of THE VIEW, OLTL creator Agnes Nixon and Anthony Geary (Luke, GH). Slezak was overwhelmed with emotion at the party, saying, "I've been here for 40 years because I love it. I'm so grateful for the job and to you, my family. It's been just magical." The show will continue the celebration with a special episode next month.
