Patricia Bruder (Ellen Stewart), born in 1936, played the mother of John Colenback's Dan Stewart on As the World Turns for years. Colenback, born in 1935, was a year older than Bruder. John Reilly, who also played Dan for a while, was born in 1934. It was all so ridiculous.
In the Y&R case, if the show wants Brooks Prentiss to be a new and viable leading man, gratuitously and arbitrarily making him be in his 60s is counter-productive . If Brooks is said to be in his 60s, that would age Leslie to 90+.
Here are some upcoming spoilers for the week of September 27th, including an interesting one about Spencer/Trina:
Monday September 27th: Josslyn has incredible news to share with Brook Lynn. Obrecht loses her advantage. With new information in hand, Anna and Valentin take the next step in their investigation. Chase gives Finn some brotherly advice. Terry offers Liz her support.
Tuesday September 28th: Maxie encourages everyone to lead with compassion. Valentin takes advantage of a moment of liquid courage. Obrecht forms an unexpected alliance. Michael and Willow are closer than ever, delighting in parenting together. Drew grows impatient with his circumstances.
Wednesday September 29th: Trina gets Cameron to help her set her plan to expose Spencer in motion. Josslyn is mystified by what she sees at GH. Nikolas realizes there’s only one way for Ava to be safe. Epiphany takes care of an old friend. Esme makes a bold move.
Interesting that Trina is going to get Cam to help her expose Spencer. Something must happen for her to realize that he was involved in the stalking. She will also be trying to expose Esme. So I wonder if she tries to expose both of them, or for some reason decides to mainly focus on Spencer. Regardless of what Trina's plans are I could see Esme throwing Spencer completely under the bus/letting people think he did everything including the fire. I think that Spencer may end up being arrested for everything, while Esme remains free for the time being. We may not get a romantic moment between Sprina anytime soon if things play out like this.
He’s no Zach Tinker.
Freddie comes off too loud and assertive on the podcast, too in-your-face. I don’t like him here any more than I did when he was on DAYS. He’s clearly jealous of Tinker in the role, and I’m thinking he wasn’t asked back at all. That’s a good thing, because he’s a lousy actor.
Saying they watched only the WilSon scenes of Beyond Salem was all shade, and ignorant as hell.
