Frances Reid Interview

So sad. This interview was 3 or 4 years ago, I believe. And she seems to get pretty confused... she can't remember names very well. In the second part of the interview, it even took her about 25 seconds to recall the name of the character she plays -- Alice Horton.

I love her reply when she's asked to describe her co-star, Macdonald Carey: "Oh... he's dead." Her laughter after it is infectious!

She talks about her roles on ATWT, The Edge of Night and other shows she did back in the early days, as well as her work in theater.

Anyway, the interviewer is subpar at best. She sounds like a robot, and it's almost as if she's trying to confuse poor Frances. She gets on my nerves through the entire interview.

It saddens me that Frances sounded so confused at parts... and this was a few years back. I wonder how well she's holding up now?

Thought everyone might enjoy it, though.

During the 40th anniversary special on SOAPnet a while back, she looked so frail. It was hard for her to get out what she wanted to say. And she seemed to forget things. :(

This years Christmas episode was especially sad, as she wasn't able to hang her own ornament. And she was not shown as much as previous years.

:lol: at Frances describing her cast members.

Susan Seaforth Hayes: "She doesn't like me!"

Peggy McCay: "Wooo!"

Louise Sorel: "She's crazy! She's one of the best actresses we've ever had on the show!"

:lol:

Her MacDonald Carey comment, haha, "Oh that sounded awful didn't it?"

Oh yeah. and the interviewer definitely sucked.

LoL, it cracked me how how everytime Frances asked the interviewer a question in return, the interviewer would NEVER ANSWER. She just went right along to the next question, totally ignoring Frances. Was she even listening to Frances' replies? Did she even know who the hell she was interviewing? What a stupid twit!

It's so funny when she talks about the people she's worked with that are now dead, "I've outlived everyone.." and then chuckled.

Ugh the interviewer is so inpersonal it actually frustrates me, because Frances seems to be so friendly and trying to connect with her and I can imagine that she was just staring at her.

I love Frances :) She's just so fabulous. Everytime you see Deidre or Kristian, or Missy talking about her, they always say how smart and sassy she is. I think DH called her a toughball or something once. It's lovely to see how much everybody loves her on the show though, I mean who doesn't love Alice Horton? Used to love her more when she was used as more than a prop for the latest twosome they wanted to prop and pimp, but she's still ALICE.

And you know personally, I just love what she said about my fave :)

The Frances/Susan "feud", I read some stuff about it, but I can't remember Susan saying anything but respectful things in her and Bill's book. Maybe they settled it? Some people just don't get along, it's just how it is I guess.

    • Well, the whole Doug Cummings story was a bit of a reference to the Willows...(gothic, dead wife, crazy assistant, Dream's End vs. Willows.)  While I am glad he came over to ATWT, I would have loved what he could do with GL at the time.  Bea Reardon was still on the canvas but not used, so he could have brought Lisa Brown back as Nola...(though getting past the Quolas would have been hard as she should have come back alone..) and built the Reardon's back up..He would have loved writing for Alex, and maybe brought Mike back to rebuild the Bauers and also he would be on the spot to write Bert's death. He could have reignited Vanessa and woken her up from her "I'm a Lewis," coma and  I do wonder what he would have done with Reva?
    • Of all the triangles Rauch and Co. were into...I can't believe they never revisited Harley and Jarsh. Well, I know its because they have to have two women fighting over one man and one woman is evil, but would have been cool to have a no villain triangle...(and saved us from Gush...) And it would have driven the Java nuts and Pharley nuts crazy!!!
    • Totally agree. AL isn’t suited to Summer written this way (which is, truthfully, in character). HK wasn’t credible in the boss-bitch moments, which AL plays more easily.
    • Welcome back, Tripp

      I’m glad Tripp is back in Salem and I like that he’s planning on being more assertive. He doesn’t deserve to get hurt again. Though I wouldn’t be surprised if some people in the Soap Universe are gonna be mad about his lines today Hopefully, we get some scenes of Johnny/Tripp and Wendy/Chanel. There haven’t been that many lately and this storyline definitely needs them. I think weaving Talia into it would be a good idea as well. She needs a new man now that the Colin storyline is over.  Rafe is still dumb. There really are no security cameras at that hospital that could have shown that Colin didn’t take Abe?? Speaking of Abe, his storyline is total ff material. James Reynolds deserves so much better than this. 
    • I've been rewatching early SATC (am mid-season 2), and am enjoying the mid-90s indie film vibe of the show at that time. It was a bit tougher and grittier but it also showed some of the growing wealth of the city at that time. SATC was always about pecking order and jostling for a better position, but on the romantic frontlines. I also enjoyed the Bad Dating SLs LOL. I understand why it went the fairytale-ish route. Part of this mirrored the evolution of the city itself, as Manhattan became more moneyed and, dare I say, unaffordable. It was a glamorous city that many aspired to live in and conquer against the odds. Part of it was also, as the show progressed, our own growing investment in the main cast and their SLs. Hence less standalone episodes and more a continuing soapy story of romantic relationships. IMO, this was a fairly organic evolution.
