    Its all just wait and see.
    I'm not expecting an influx of past characters.Some viable new characters are just as important.
    As boring as I found him,I could see a Cole Howard return as having some impact for Ashley and Victoria.Also JT.

    A year before she landed the role of Connor, Alison Rice Taylor tested for Frannie Hughes on ATWT
    On Guiding Light, Michael J Stark tested for Andy Norris and then got called for Joe Bradley.

    I think Alan lasted till around 70/71.
    Can't understand why he was never brought back.

    That story is all about Alan Sterling's real paternity, John Dennis is Alan's real father and Dickson Ridgeway is blackmailing him with a letter stolen from Bruce.
    Alan was 14 at the time. I don't know how this was resolved or whether Alan ever found out Bruce was not his father.

    4 actresses are listed
    Marla Adams

    Marian McCargo

    I guess this was either when Susan Flannery left or Susan Oliver was replaced.
    Does Jason 47 or anyone know more about this?

    Repeats of Loretta Young replaced Another World while The Doctors showed repeats (from the anthology days most likely), while CBS used I Love Lucy,Jack Benny, Candid Camera and repeats of drama anthology shows in daytime.

    Maybe that little snippet of Harry Bellaver explains why Ernie was killed off.Perhaps he was having trouble remembering his lines?
    Everyone was satisfied with VW as Rachel so at no point was there any talk of Strasser returning.
    However, there has been mention of BM returning to AW in 84, but she didn't relish the trip to Brooklyn each day and turned down the offer.

    Melinda Fee (ex Charlotte Bauer) claims she is a Targeted Individual. I had no idea what that was. Came across her name reading about Randy Quaid. Apparently it's some conspiracy theory involving mind control and who knows what else. She thinks 'directed energy waves' are targeting her and causing pain.
    Actress Melinda Fee explores the possibility of an under-reported idea that some producers and other handlers in Hollywood have long been suspected of acquiring large insurance policies on their famous clients right before their deaths.

    Great stuff as usual Jason. The live soaps had to go off the air and the networks put on sitcom reruns etc.
    Did Days have to work extra days to get ahead once more?

    I recall reading that she wrote Ashley scenes under Bill Bell's guidance. I think Kay Alden had a similarsituation in the 70's,taking responsibility for fleshing out Lorie/Leslie/ Lance.

    All for past characters returning, as long as there is a decent long term story attached. What was the status of Austin and Carries marriage when they last left?
