    ^Agree - I think Wiggin knew that as well, but Colin had no attitudes at all and let him remininsce about Alexandria. I think that the interviewer was obviously a soap viewer herself made the interview very enjoyable overall. As for Wiggin's view on ATWT, the only one I could think of is that radio transcript that he did back in the 90s when he was still on the show: http://www.peteranthonyholder.com/Archives/2016/cjad20.htm

    ^ Thank you for these links - great descripition of Wiggin: "an incredibly elastic face" - so true.

    ATWT alums Margaret Colin and Tom Wiggin were interviewed in this local TV morning show video (6-minute long) when both appeared in an early 2016 production of "City of Conversation" in Washington, DC. Towards the end she spoke very graciously about playing Margo, the show's demise, and Hilary B. Smith. Sorry, I don't think the station uploaded this on YouTube, so here's the link: http://www.fox5dc.com/good-day/74965437-video

    Well, to make the circle complete (and stretching it), Liz Hubbard herself graduated from another Ivy League institution -- Harvard (Radcliffe). In fact, per Wiki, Liz's mother graduated from Columbia University Medical School: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_Hubbard. The short-lived TV series Breaking Away (80-81), where Tom Wiggin played a supporting role to Sean Cassidy's lead, is on YouTube. Here's the pilot.

    ^ They moved into the in-law/garage apartment around early January 1986, based on this clip below (the uploader did not specify the month of 1986, but from what I could tell, the previous episode was most likely the one on January 8, 1986 [which was a Wednesday of the week], uploaded by munecojim). Essentially, this was around the time that Kim first began seeing a therapist, and John Dixon confronted Lisa at the Memorial for possibly being the "secret admirer" who had been tormenting Kim. Anyway, Nancy said that she and Chris had begun the moving process, and Steve showed up to finish the kitchen of the garage apartment and Ellen and Betsy came along and ended up staying for dinner at the Hughes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gcxnmm-I-d4

    Interesting, also, to see David and Ellen Stewart discuss their relationship issues as a mature couple. When Susan and Emily returned to Oakdale during Marland's tenure, David and Ellen did play critical roles as parental figures, but I could recall only a handful of scenes where they had soul-searching discussions about themselves. (An especially memorable one occurred in the middle of the Tad Channing murder mystery, when they stayed at the cabin while Betsy and Craig went looking for Steve, who skipped town.) But it really wasn't entirely Marland's fault - I believe Henderson Forsythe was actively seeking acting opportunities in theater, so the show kept saying how David was out doing research on AIDS in Africa.

    ^Tom Wiggin - one of my all time favorites!

    I watched the show live at the time and Gregg Marx and HB Smith were so good (peaked, for me, during the miscarriage of Margo in November sweeps of 1986), Scott Holmes' entry into ATWT was very jarring - even though Marland sort of prepared the viewers with Tom's absence from Oakland. Watching the show now retrospectively on YouTube, Scott Holmes gradually grew on me, and even his earlier scenes with HB Smith made sense.

    ^You're welcome. Hers was a hopeful prayer, but for many, the feelings are still too raw for it. Incidentally, other ATWT alums, e.g. Margaret (Maggie) Reed (Shannon), did not take it so well, looking at her FB. Incidentally, she has a major birthday coming up - she's turning 60 on 11/15! On another note, if anyone's interested in Melanie's take on her time at ATWT (and in case no one had already mentioned it), I really enjoyed a podcast interview she did earlier this year: site: http://seincast.libsyn.com/seincast-interview-melanie-smith The whole interview is a little over an hour on her career to date, but she spoke very positively about her time at ATWT during the beginning quarter of the hour - mentioning Doug Marland and referred to her cast-mates as "thespians," e.g. Larry Bryggman, Julianne Moore, Parker Posey, etc. See here for Bill Shanks bio, mentioning a spouse after Crow.

    Actually, Melanie did write something about it on her FB: (BTW, D-Dreamer: sorry to miss your reply to me sometime ago on Billy Shank and Ashley Crow. To the best of my knowledge, they are no longer together.)

    I remember reading about that a few years ago and was surprised by it. I guess it worked out for them. I'd say, they've been married since 1980! I think that even beats Margaret Colin and Justin Deas' time united in matrimony! Sorry if someone already posted this, but Ashley Crow (Beatrice) was married to Bill Shanks (Casey Peretti) from 1988 to 1993. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ashley_Crow http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0788208/

    I loved Finn Carter and Sierra during the Marland years! Sierra was such a subtle character but the development of her character from 85, when she first appeared to the end of 86' was so dramatic when you actually think about it, but it was a gradual change that was rooted in story, which made it so believable. From those scenes of Sierra being manhandled by Tonio and wanting to hide the bruises to her response to Lucinda's plea for her to reconsider divorcing Tonio where Sierra saucily says "If you think he's such a great husband, why don't you marry him?!" And Sierra admitting that (in marrying Tonio) she made the biggest mistake of her life and she was trying to fix it. So you went from a character who was once easily manipulated by her mother, lied to and cheated on by her husband, to someone who creates and determines her own agency and under her own power, charts her own life course. That was some deft writing on Marland's part, which made it all the more sad how Sierra's character was torn up in '94 to facilitate Craig's budding relationship with Samantha. I know Finn wasn't returning to the show so something had to be done to resolve the issue of her marriage to Craig but considering the fact that Scott didn't even stay that much longer anyway and Kirk and Sam soon got together, I consider it kind of a waste what they did to both Craig and Sierra at this point-from then on, both characters became somewhat expendable. During the Marland years however, the character grew in esteem, albeit quietly. I didn't really start watching ATWT live until summer 1985, so it was a bit jarring to find on Youtube Sierra's early scenes where Craig found her in Montega as a tomboy/rebel-fighter speaking English with a Latino accent. But it just goes to show what a great writer Marland was by how well Sierra was integrated into the storylines. Oakdalian uploaded some terrific and feisty performances by Finn Carter (playing opposite Scott Bryce) from a November '85 episode under the title "Lily Meets Holden," before her disastrous marriage with Tonio.

    Finn Carter really didn't have a chance surrounded by such a stellar cast at the very top of their game during those first years of Marland's reign. But I've always loved her portrayal of Sierra. So memorable even after all these years.

    Today is not just April Fool's Day - it is also Don Hastings birthday: 4/1/1934. Happy birthday, Dr. Bob!! Found this photo of him taken in February 2012, after ATWT ended.
