    Another World

    Reading about Carmen Duncan's passing has me wondering about Victoria Wyndham. AFAIK Victoria is not on any social media. It's hard to believe that a good number of the actors Victoria played opposite of in major storylines are now gone.

    Days: RIP Peggy McCay

    Wow, what a huge loss for Days. In the last 25 years they've lost almost all the heads of their major families: Macdonald Carey, Frances Reid, Joseph Mascolo, Frank Parker, and now Peggy McCay. Hard to believe John Aniston is the only one left of that generation.
  3. Days has had older actor/teenage actress meeting on the show and getting together in real life before. In the mid-1980s David Wallace and Lisa Trusel met on Days and they were married one week after Lisa turned 18. AFAIK they are still together some 30+ years later.

    Mary Ellen Stuart competed alongside Bobbie Eakes at Miss America in September 1982. Oddly enough they would both start on CBS Daytime within months of each other. Here's a video of both of them being announced amongst the top 10 (Bobbie was announced first, Mary Ellen was announced at 1:12).

  6. Bradley Bell followed his sister in law MAB in recasting Ridge and Thorne with ABC leftovers. Zack Slater and Jasper Jacks are not cutting it. Put on your casting director hats and recast the Forrester sons. Maybe this board could come up with better choices.

    20 years ago this week (starting at 4:36). Original airdate was Friday October 3, 1997 according to an old online recap site. This was the scene shown from Cynthia Watros's Emmy reel during the 1998 Daytime Emmy broadcast. I'm thinking the other episode submitted was the witness stand breakdown from June 1997. Watch those two scenes and you'll see why the 1998 Lead Actress race ended up being the biggest upset ever.
  11. When B&B began, Ronn Moss was 35 and Clayton Norcross was 32, so they weren't that far apart in age. The recast Thornes were a good amount younger than RM; Jeff Trachta was 8 years younger and Winsor Harmon was 11 years younger. Bradley Bell must have forgotten that Ridge was the older brother when he recast Ridge with Thorsten Kaye, as TK is actually 2 1/2 years younger than WH. So with Ingo Rademacher coming on board as Thorne, at least Ridge will now look like the older brother LOL.

    Maybe JFP's plan was to bring on Marcy Walker to pair her with Josh, then have Kim Zimmer return shortly after, creating a Tangie/Josh/Reva triangle. To think if the Josh/Tangie pairing took off, we might not have gotten Annie the following year.

    Rick Hearst left in 1996. JFP was already gone by then.

    JFP brought in a good number of Santa Barbara alums to GL during her run: Vincent Irizarry, Justin Deas, Marj Dusay, Marcy Walker. Am I missing anyone? I know JFP was around when Alan was recast but surprisingly that role went to a virtual unknown instead of a known soap actor. I believe JFP was already gone when Amanda was recast and that role also went to a virtual unknown. I've read some big soap names were considered when Amanda was recast in 1995; among them were Kimberlin Brown, Crystal Chappell, Nancy Lee Grahn, Lauren Koslow, Lisa Peluso.
