I'll have to check out that YouTube channel. Now I didn't see any of that era of SFT, though I did see David Gale terrorize Nancy Karr on EON. It's great when you get to see actors before they were typecast. David Gale was totally believable as an earnest priest, just as Julia Duffy was great as a slinky young vixen on LOL.
I had mentioned on another forum that Terry Kiser and Jada Rowland were one of my favorite soap couples, and someone responded with something like "Terry Kiser played a handsome romantic lead???" He had only seen Kiser playing thuggish roles in more recent movies. Until I saw some of those early episodes of TD, I would never have have imagined him playing an innocent and shy young intern. Terry Kiser could really act.
Well, I saw David Gale on SS first so seeing him as a villain later was a change for me, lol.
Ken Stevens died but I can't remember how. Laurie raised his son, Clay. Ken's first wife and mother of Clay had been killed in a plane crash with her new husband shortly before. Ken had gotten Jill and Laurie pregnant at the same time but Laurie's baby died (or she had a miscarriage, can't remember the details).
I've never seen David Gale on TSS, but there is a channel of his work on other shows- mostly SFT - YouTube. It's hard to imagine him playing an earnest priest after seeing him play the evil Rusty Sentell!!
