I heard bout Jeanne, but John Clarke I just know of the horrible Mickeys after John Clarke retirement. I am sure Randolph was not well received as Mickey.

Harriet Hall temporarily replaced Julia Barr on AMC in the early 80s when Barr took a leave to tour in a play with Katherine Hepburn. Roya Megnot subbed for her successor on Loving, Lisa Peluso, when Peluso needed to take a break. Also, 99% sure that Patience Cleveland subbed for Jeanne Cooper on Y&R at some point.

Poor Diana Walker, was her main soap career subbing for various actresses 6 years apart.

I think there were two temporary Carolyn replacements, weren't there? I can't remember.

Patricia Maucieri - temporary replacement for Toni Kalem on Another World July 19-22, 1976

I'd like to see this one.

I had forgotten Anna Stuart temped for Linda Dano on OLTL. By then I was so tired of the whole Rae thing it was a relief to see something different. She filled in during that woeful time when Al Holden was faking paralysis. I think she was in an awful episode where mean college kids were pretending to be in wheelchairs to mock Al or something. :rolleyes:

I had no idea that John Clarke and Jeanne Cooper had temp replacements!

I think Giselle was when Jeanne Cooper went to rehab. Bill Bell said he got so much angry mail about recasting Katherine he decided he never would again.

I'd really love to see those Judith Barcroft temps (she's such a distinctive actress, imagining her as Viki is fascinating), the Bad Seed as Kim, and Nancy Frangione as Tina, wow!

Another one is Kevin Burkhardt(sp?) on GH. He subbed for Jack Wagner as Frisco. Gloria Monty liked him so much that she cast him as Kevin O'Connor a little while later.

Delaine Yates filled in for Laura Sisk (Ally) on The City in late 1996 when Laura had to have some sort of medical thing (I think it was appendicitis).

Another one is Kevin Burkhardt(sp?) on GH. He subbed for Jack Wagner as Frisco. Gloria Monty liked him so much that she cast him as Kevin O'Connor a little while later.

Gloria also used that as a way to keep Jack Wagner in line, as she thought his "illness" was about wanting more money.

Thank you Loyal to AMC for the Patience Cleveland mention.For years I have only seem mention of the other Katherine replacements,but was sure I had seen another actress play the role. i convinced myself it was McKenzie,but when I saw the name in your post I remembered the voiceover announcing the change.

I recall she was in scenes with Liz and looked more like Julianna McCarthy than Jeanne Cooper.

I don't think Harriet Hall was a temp replacement.Julia Barr left the role of Brooke when her contract was up and Hall was the new Brooke.She wasn't popular and Julia Barr returned to the role.

Anna Stuart as Rae was kinda cute b/c it was like petite Anna playing Linda Dano dress-up. :lol: I think she was only on a day, two at most, right? Her lines could have been given to Renee or someone else, really. But I was just pleased to see an AW alum working, and Anna and Linda are pals so that's nice. They actually did Mame in summer stock together, Linda as Mame, Anna as Vera. I also thought that Anna's AMC character Mary Smythe was dressed very Dano-esque, the sleek lines and the jewelry in particular.

Victoria Wyndham and Felice Camargo, I think that is just so cool. To be siblings so close in looks and age, both in the biz pinch-hitting for one another, I just find that awesome. And Robert Mandano (he was also in the original list, yer slippin' Scotty, yer slippin' :lol: ) and Kamar are buds so that's also cool.
