I recall watching some scenes between Meta and Michael Burke around 1997. For some reason, I got the impression that they were going to link the two characters -- that Michael was Meta's son. But that never came to pass.
A Martinez's comments are strange. Why is he crediting Jill Farren Phelps for "taking a chance" on Cruz and Eden? I believe Farren Phelps was music director when Cruz and Eden were paired up, not executive director. I wonder if he meant Mary-Ellis Bunim.
