  1. I can 100% guarantee that this (in bold) is not true.
  2. I know there was a running gag on ATWT in the 90s/00s about how Hal Munson had fathered half the town... but then he only fathered four children (Nikki, Adam, Will and Parker) biologically and one (Jennifer) by adoption.
  3. OK, I swore I wasn't going to do this until I've finished the series... and I won't check back here until I have (which will take me a few more months), but I need to get something off my chest. I've been watching this show for just about seven years now, at the old-fashioned pace of one episode a week (with a few breaks in between seasons). And despite all of the tackiness and camp, I really loved the early seasons. The later seasons have been a bit less to my taste, but they've been interesting enough to keep watching. I'm currently in early season 7, and I have recently had more than a few issues with some of the directions this show has taken. However, I have just watched the episode "The World According To Matt", and I am super pissed at the moment about SO many things. I wonder if there's been a change in writing regimes or something, but I strongly dislike what the current (at the time) regime is doing to the show and its history. Again, I already found out a (twenty-year-old-)spoiler(-to-me) when I glanced at this thread for two seconds a few weeks ago, so I'll stay away from this thread for a few more months, but I needed to get this off my chest.
  4. Right, good point. I did know that, but got so caught up thinking about characters that had been played by multiple successful actors, I forgot to think about when the success occurred. My bad.
  5. Shoot, I thought I posted it there. Am I able to relocate it myself, or do I need an admin to do so?
  6. While discussing the many Casey Hugheses on As The World Turns in the Where Are They Now thread, it struck me that three of the actors who played the role (four if you count temporary replacements) have gone on to have reasonable careers in primetime/movies. As I was thinking a bit more about it, I realized that the same could be said for Casey's cousin, Lucy Montgomery. What other characters have sent several of their portrayers off to reasonable careers? Casey Hughes (As The World Turns) Joseph Cross Zach Roerig Scott Porter (temporary replacement) Billy Magnussen Lucy Montgomery (As The World Turns) Amanda Seyfried Peyton List Spencer Grammer Betsy Stewart Montgomery Andropoulos (As The World Turns) Meg Ryan Lindsay Frost Lien Hughes (As The World Turns) Ming-Na Wen Lea Salonga
  7. Boyd and Vack were both on less than a year, and, as such, haven't done much with the role. Cross, by contrast, was on for quite a few years (longer than Roerig and Magnussen), but his Casey was definitely still a kid, who was often sent upstairs after a few seconds on the screen. It's interesting to me though that Cross, Roerig and Magnussen (and Porter, for that matter) have all gone on to have reasonable careers in primetime/movies.
  8. Joseph Cross (Casey Hughes, As The World Turns) has directed his first movie, which was just released: Summer Night.
  9. As The World Turns: Will Munson & Gwen Norbeck Luke Snyder & Noah Mayer Jack Snyder & Carly Tenney [Scott Holroyd's] Paul Ryan & Rose D'Angelo Jake McKinnon & Molly Conlan Dusty Donovan & Jennifer Munson Mike Kasnoff & Jennifer Munson Simon Frasier & Katie Peretti Mike Kasnoff & Katie Peretti Casey Hughes & Maddie Coleman Hal Munson & Emily Stewart
  10. I know this is a long shot, but you wouldn't by any chance be selling the Carly and Jack Collection (As The World Turns) as well, would you? That's the one DVD that I missed when they were selling.
  11. Tamara Tunie (Jessica, ATWT) just released an album. I haven't been able to listen to it yet, but it's on Spotify (and, I am sure, all sorts of other services).
  12. Also, in 1979 ATWT had that storyline at the Willows with Bennett (Doug Higgins) and Hester (Ann Stanchfield). Bennett didn't turn out the actual villain, but both he and Hester were quite scary at times. Perhaps not so much to our 2010's eyes, but I would imagine in 1979 this was quite a creepy storyline.
  13. OK, so... when I had just started watching ATWT around 2000, I had never yet seen James Stenbeck on the show, but I had heard so many things about him on the show. I remember there was a picture of him on one of the sites that would profile the characters and that one single picture was the only thing I 'knew' James by. I just checked, and I actually have the picture saved on my computer, so I'll attach it to this post. It's the smallest picture and it's the stupidest thing (mind you, I was 10 at the time), but that picture actually gave me the creeps. Something about the way he's staring in it. Combined with everything I had heard about the character. I also believe that when I first saw James when he returned to the show in 2001, it was in the middle of a thunderstorm and the character was seen with a violent flash of lightning. Which, of course, I now know harkens back to the old "Hello, Barbara" days. 😂
