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.
Some more Love of Life characters that I don't think are listed Speed Kendall 1955 a crime figure Van is dating to gather evidence Jill Crown was also known as Jill Barstow Fred Slade - Van's editor at Barrowville Times Dr Marshall 1967 Laurie's psychiatrist Dixon and Jane Ridgeway(his wife) Dixon was a teacher at Bruce's school who was blackmailing John Dennis over Alan Sterling's paternity.
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.
The Museum of Broadcast Communications in Chicago lists in it's archive a DOOL audition tape for the role of Laura Horton, http://museumtv.pastperfectonline.com/archive/8FF3D1FB-0D0A-49A8-9A40-415337603700 4 actresses are listed Marla Adams Judith McConnell Marian McCargo Connie Caulfield 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. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0f2ldPhR4U
