    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.

    Wasn't he not an active father to most of his children?

     

    He has been somewhat unlucky with regards to learning the truth about his children...

     

    First off, Tom and Margo kept the fact that he was Adam's father from him and raised him as their own son. By the time he found out, he did the best thing for Adam, which was to let him be raised by Tom. 

    Next, when he and Barbara were finally expecting a child of their own, Barbara let him believe that he was Jennifer's father, even though it was really Darryl.

    Will is the only child that Hal got to raise from birth.

    Nikki suddenly just appeared out of nowhere as a teenager.

    Parker, much like Adam, was withheld from him by Carly and passed off as John's for the first year-or-so of his life.

  2. 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.  

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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. 😂

    ALL MY CHILDREN         Mrs. Young       Unknown Year

    ONE LIFE TO LIVE            Jeanne   (recurring)     Unknown Year

    LOVING                         Saleswoman     Unknown Year

    AS THE WORLD TURNS       Mrs. Goldstein      1998

     

    Is it possible that Lehman's Mrs. Goldstein is missing from the G-section of your ATWT character list? Or am I seriously overlooking her?

  10. Not sure if this was mentioned already,  but I believe I just spotted Tamara Tunie (Jessica, ATWT) in the trailer for the upcoming FOX show Not Just Me. It's unclear how big of a role she'll have, but it looks like she's the mother of one of the main characters.
