Profile Bio Text
Melissa Jean Archer (born December 2, 1979; Dallas, Texas) is an American actress.
Archer first appeared as "bad girl" Natalie Balsom on the ABC soap opera One Life to Live on July 16, 2001. The character was later established to be the long-lost daughter of original character Victoria Lord, portrayed by multiple Daytime Emmy Award-winner Erika Slezak.
ABC announced its plans to cancel One Life to Life on January 13, 2012. Prospect Park attempted to put the series (as well as All My Children which was cancelled on September 23, 2011) on the Internet; however, due to funding issues, they have now abandoned those plans (November 23, 2011). Thus, the last day of the series was January 13, 2012 on ABC. However, in January 2013, Prospect Park confirmed that they had attempted a second time to reboot AMC and OLTL, which turns out to be promising. Prospect Park was able to sign with the labor unions and get the other production issues dealt with. Archer will reprise her role in April 29, 2013 on the One Life to Live online reboot.
