The Guiding Light Update
The Calm After the Storm
The lighting, the thunder and the rain has finally ended, but the ramifications of the night are just beginning to be felt by those in Springfield. "One of the biggest stories that we had going during that time was Holly and Ed." Says executive producer/co-head writer Josh Hawkins. The week begins with an "In the Light" featuring Holly and Blake. "We wanted to showcase these two dynamic characters who both Dan and I are in love with." Hawkins went on.
And their love with Holly is clearly being seen as of this date Holly had moved from the shadows of the soap to the front burner where Dan Gobble, co-head writer assures she will stay. "Holly is by far one of the most dynamic characters on daytime, she deserves to be front and center."
"After Roger's death we thought about the next logical step for Blake and Holly, the steps that we've outlined are that the most logical." Shares Hawkins. Look for Holly's "ITL" to be published Monday, June 4th.
What Time is It?
So as most readers know "The Guiding Light" went about a week and half without an update. "Life sometimes does that to you." Shared Hawkins. However rest assured you won't be missing any of the story! "We're still telling stories as if it were mid-May." He continued. So that means look for Michelle's baby to be born in the next few weeks, prom and graduation for the Senior class of 2007.
