As The World Turns with a Dutch twist


A late night Dutch television show once featured soap star Elizabeth Hubbard, aka Lucinda Walsh on As The World Turns (ATWT), talking about her role on the world’s longest running soap, scheduled to stop next month after 54 years.

Elizabeth Hubbard currently lives in the province of Friesland with – you guessed it – a Dutchman.

The last episode of ATWT has Lucinda ending up in Amsterdam, where she might end up buying a house in real life. She has a guest spot on Dutch soap ‘Goede Tijden, Slechte Tijden’ (‘Good Times, Bad Times’ – GSTS) for twee weeks, playing Sair Pointdexter, Irene Huygens’ mother from America.

Hubbard plans to learn Dutch (something everyone wants to hear) and keep busy with writing and the likes. ATWT is about one and half year’s behind, so that’s still a ways to go before it finally stops.

You can catch Hubbard using Dutch words and making jokes (in English with Dutch subtitles):

    née Mary Ellen Walters.

    What a remarkable transition from an effeminate love-crushed boy to a testosterone-filled man. Who writes this schlock?

    Nonetheless the action and dialogue between the girl and boy is quite entertaining perhaps becuase they are not cynical in the least ….whereas the retired cougar, “Ms Hollander love advisor” is a boor.
