  • Ellen is a great, sweet actress! I love her!

    Ellen Dolan is a great, beautiful and talented actress. Besides that, she seems very funny, sweet and caring to. Ellen is one of the reasons why I keep watching As The World Turns, along with some other things, of course, sence her part in ATWT isn't very big anymore, too bad. I think that Ellen should have a bigger part as cop again in ATWT, what will make her role bigger. Anyway, Ellen's Margo on As The World Turns and all the theatherproductions she played in, are great. She deserves to be rated higher, she's defenitly underrated. Ellen rocks! I hope we see more of her soon!moreless
