Check out his YouTube channel, The Locher Room, for a new reunion with Another World stars. Next week, he chats with One Life to Live stars.
Looking forward, what can fans expect on DOOL this week?

In the meantime, Lani (Sal Stowers) helps put Kristen on Sarah’s tail, even breaking her friend out of jail. Lani has to answer to Eli (Lamon Archey) for helping Kristen escape custody.
