Austin Peck Loves Out Loud

Austin Peck was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, but we have no doubt that he is a citizen of the United States of America. This former linebacker on his high school football team writes poetry and draws figures and caricatures. He has illustrated a book based on the lives of his two sons. In June 2010, Peck and his relationship with his former As the World Turns co-star, and current TV co-star Terri Conn was covered in the February 15, 2011 and March 8, 2011 issues of Soap Opera Digest magazine. It also covered his move to One Life to Live, where he is currently burning up the airwaves as Rick, the auteur. He played Austin Reed on Days of our Lives 1995 to 2002, 2005 to 2006 and 2010. Peck was a recast to the role, and succeeded a popular actor. Peck quickly became very popular in the role, reportedly getting the most fan mail of anyone in the Days cast. He assumed the role of Brad Snyder on As the World Turns, first airing in January 2007. He has also appeared in the acclaimed off-Broadway play The Irish Curse. We are happy and thrilled to have this perennial fan favorite joining us for Love Out Loud VI on May 11, 2011. His presence will no doubt be an opportunity not only helping raise awareness and funds but pleasing those attendees who will come to meet and greet him.

Terri Conn Loves Out Loud

Theresa Celeste Conn’s family moved often during her childhood, but eventually settled in Albuquerque, NM. Having forsaken acting for cheerleading in high school, Terri was in her junior year as a communications major at University of San Diego when she went to Florence, Italy — and had an epiphany. Realizing that she really wanted to be an actress, Ms Conn made a deal with her parents: She would move to Los Angeles for the summer to pursue her dream, but would return to finish her senior year. Soon after, she landed a part on the syndicated teen show Breaker High, then auditioned for As the World Turns , conn truly blossomed (along with Katie) when her scheming, high-strung character was paired with Paul Leyden's Simon. Terri was nominated for a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actress in 2001 and for Outstanding Supporting Actress at the Soap Opera Digest Awards that same year. It is no surprise that this beautiful and talented young woman found herself on One Life to Live very soon after As the World Turns ended. As of March 2011 she gets to work with her real life love Austin Peck. It is a great honor to have Ms. Conn as a celebrity greeter on May 11, 2011 at Prohibition.
