Strasser I've seen give subtle performances (i.e. in a miniseries called Baby M)...and her Dorian when she came back in 1993 was loads more low key.
Jess Walton was more subdued as Kelly on Capital. But she did make Jill more OTT the longer she played her.
And I did see Lucci play more subdued in a few of her tv movies (double edge and Bride in Black).
I wonder if playing the same role for so long, the actresses play them more broad to keep from being bored?
Am I crazy or did the legendary Eddie Drueding also run an EON site? The layout of an older site with bios, etc. was identical to his AW homepage.
There seems to be an updated version of the EON site around today, but with far fewer bios (I was trying to look up when the Madisons started airing in '78 or '79).
ATWT: I loved Hunt Block in the role of Craig. Sure, he was hammy, but I really bought his overprotected routine with Lucy, and I thought his scenes after losing Bryant were heartbreaking. He seemed to have chemistry with all of his leading ladies, and if Mary Beth Evans wasn't reoccurring, I think they could've hit another round of Craig and Sierra out of the park.
The explanation for why Irene Manning and the CIA did what they did was convoluted and confusing but the storyline was exciting. OLTL may have went downhill after the mid 90s and especially after 2002 but it was never boring. It was like GH junior, alot of crime and action, and decent attempts at addressing social issues. I agree with the person who said OLTL was better than AMC. However I'm now getting an appreciation for all my children because I started watching it growing up in the mid-2000s when the show was on its last leg.
I like Viki, and I like the concept of multiple personalities despite the numerous confusing rewrites, but some of her scenes as the other alters were cringe. 'Nikki' in 2001 onwards especially! Some of her moments as 'Princesss' as well.
UNPOPULAR OPINION: 1. Jack is better husband to Nikki on Y&R 2.Billy Warlock was a good AJ on GH.
