Some followups to that article

Pamela and Darryl divorced in 1982 and their son Justin committed suicide in 1985.

 

Thor Fields is now 51 and a musician .He has website.

Here's what he says about TD

As a young boy of the age 8-11, my daily routine included getting a script at 8am, running lines with the cast, rehearsing at the Rockefeller Center and shooting the program in Studio 3B. The cast and crew were so generous and gracious. They always made me feel right at home. I had no idea how extraordinary this experience was at the time and I am forever grateful to those who showed me so much love.

Matt and Maggi agree to remarry.

 

Barbara Morgenroth and Leonard Kantor were the final writers.

 

Gerald Straub was the exec producer.

In the 90s I got to know Barbara Morgenroth. She was another one of the honchos who spent time in RATS & the various soap forums on, like, AOL, Delphi and Prodigy. A friend of mine and I ran the one on Delphi. Unlike Tom Petitjean, Barbara didn't bother with a pseudonym.  Same thing with Michael Kape, 1/3 of "Soap Opera Now" (Don & Joanna being the other 2/3s), he came to all our chats & he never bothered with a pseudonym either. Barbara was a wild woman! She was full of ideas, very political, but an Orthodox Jew, all at the same time.

Kim Zimmer told an anecdote about Alec Baldwin in her book. Apparently a whole slew of the women his age caught a glimpse of him when he was there to audition, They all went running in to say, "Hire HIM!"

What was Tom Petitjean's soap pyseudonym ?

God, I wish I knew. I cannot remember. I'm totally blank & I cannot find anyone else who remembers either. I emailed with him & talked to him on the  phone literally daily. All I can say is that it was something clever that was 2 words where each word began with an R. You know, like Roger Ramjet, or the like. If anyone remembers I'm begging for what it was!

Kathleen Turner is really coming into her own at this point in the reruns. She wasn't really a terrific actress yet, but she definitely had that IT factor. She had that special something that made her a huge film star just a couple of years later.

Thank you...it's always nice to hear back from the people on the show, and especially to hear that they enjoyed their time on the show. I knew girls in high school who were similar in looks and personality to Jane's character, Kim.

Here's Meg Mundy (Mona Croft) in the 1979 film adaptation of Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar. She is only in this one scene, and the movie filmed in NYC and NJ, so she probably didn't have to take any time off from the show.
