I actually really like Pearl. He's unusual and okay with that about himself. He also wants friends who like him for himself, not his money. He sees through the surface that people portray and sees into who they really are, then calls them on it. Someone here once said that Mason needed Mary to prepare him for Julia. I think Julia needed Pearl to prepare her for Mason. I mean they weren't lovers, but Pearl sort of made Julia face herself. And then, he let her know that herself was actually a good thing.

I can’t believe they were planning on having Augusta fall for the man who raped Julia. I’m glad Louise Sorel refused to play that story but sorry if that was in fact the reason she was written off. Julia and Augusta had their prickly moments but no way would Augusta not believe Julia or do that. To make matters worse, Augusta was the only character who knew Julia and questioned whether it really happened. Everyone else believed Julia, even people like Gina who didn’t like her. It was just gross all around.

I agree with all of this. It is too bad that we lost Augusta because of this. But on the up side, the world did gain Vivian Allemagne.

I'm just happy Louise Sorel always spoke up for herself and her character, especially during a time it was probably not the safest option to choose.

I went full geek and joined an SB Facebook group. She occasionally posts there. She seems like a very kind lady. When you read interviews with the cast, most of them speak very highly of her. Although I read one interview with her that said she didn't see Vivian as a villian. So maybe not as kind.

Just joking, I truly think she is probably quite awrsome.

I saw her as Vivian first, which is why I think of her as Augusta second. I wrote to her a few years ago and mentioned that my mother wouldn't allow my sister and I to watch soaps until we were teenagers. She wrote back and approved of my mother's decision.

Oh how I would wish for a proper Archive of American Television-style interview of Louise Sorel on her career. 
I'd even try to sneak in a question about her marriage to Herb "Stan" Edelman because that has always been one of my favorite tidbit of random three degree of separation.

I agree. I'd also ask about her time on the short-lived The Don Rickles Show. She played Don Rickles' wife, and a pre-Happy Days Erin Moran played their daughter.

The show really gives Mason some of the best lines. There are his one line zingers. But one I've really been thinking about was after Mary got married and he was going to marry Santana. And he tells Mary that if reincarnation is real, he is going to find her again because they've already wasted one lifetime. Whew! Did tptb really think we wouldn't fall for a character who said that? Or even the fact that he wanted Sophia at his wedding to Santana. I do think he wanted to try to make it work, but Santana was an idiot who didn't understand Mason.

I'm so glad my mom was a bad influence. I vaguely remember watching Somerset with her when I was in early grade school. I remember one scene. Do my eyes spy Robert Hogan in that bottom picture? Don't answer, I know that's Vince.

Lane Davies was one of a kind. I'm still angry at GH for wasting him.

Don't get me started. I think LD/NLG STILL had great chemistry as Cameron and Alexis, but then the stupid fake DD crap and "Dobson" (UGH!) ruined everything.

He was definitely one of the show's most delightful characters!! I think both Lane Davies and Gordon Thomson have said that Mason was the role of a lifetime.

I never read about Lane Davies saying that, but if he did, awesome! I do know GT raved about SB and Mason in many an interview.
