Carmen Duncan is the only Iris I know so she is Iris to me. Duncan's work during The Chief/Mac's Death storylines was Emmy worthy. She was magnificent. When I see Beverlee McKinsey as Iris, she comes across as over the top because I'm used to Duncan.

Interesting -- I think Carmen went "over the top" far more often than Beverlee did. Beverlee was ice and Carmen was fire. I never bought Carmen as Iris, but I did come to like what I saw as a completely different character.

Watching clips from 81

Liking this Alice, she's got spunk

WOW, I presume Cecile is making it seem like Jamie hit her?

Mac (with the Joker hairstyle) is basically blackmailing Rachel

Joey, Rick, Jerry, Mitch, and Jamie are HOT imo

I think us, who knew and loved Beverlee's Iris just see Carmen Duncan as just different and not really Iris.  I do like Carmen Duncan very much and she did a great job portraying Iris but in a different way.  Even when she appeared in 1988 and I thought maybe someone else should have been casted for the role, I still thought she was great.  I always say, dont blame the actor, blame the soap.  They are responsible for turning someone into a completely different person when they recast.  Rachel and Iris would have never gotten even rometely along if it was Bev's Iris.

it's always puzzling how writers randomly cherrypick a character or event from the past eg Ted's return, when other events and characters from the past are ignored eg Nancy returning, Rachel's father/half sister etc

I believe at one time there was talk of Pammy Davis (Rachel's sister) returning.  Technically she was on Somerset and not AW (spin off soap).  I could be wrong.  I don't recall if there was any real interaction between Rachel and her sister Pammy who was not Ada's daughter. Someone wrote that even a soap magazine wrote they were casting for the role but obvisoulsy it never happened..  They should have had Rachel's father return to town.  When Connie Ford passed away, I think Jordan Charney should have returned as her brother, Sam Lucas.  He was best known as Mr Angelino on Three's Company in the late 70's after he left AW around 1975.  At least for the funeral anyway but AW had lost all is real family connections at this point and probably know one even knew about these characters..

IA.  Sam could have returned for Ada's funeral -- Lahoma, too!

Sam and Lahoma had a daughter. I envisaged a widowed Sam returning and leaving her with Ada while he went to work in Saudi arabia or some other far flung place leaving Ada to be surrogate mom to this girl.

Susannah. Was she born on AW or Somerset?

Christopher Schemering's Soap Encyclopedia indicates Sam's law partner Ben Grant who was married to Ellen. They had two children, teens, Jill and David. Are they these people? These people are listed in Somerset.

Now I'm turned around about that. What was Chris Bruno doing that kept him from playing Sam?

 

And, when did they bring Mitch Longley on? I saw him give a demonstration of how he used his lower torso to make it seem could could walk --- and it was brilliant. He constantly picked up his legs & repositioned them to give the illusion of being able to move them. It worked, too!

He didn't get the part. Brian Green AKA Singing Sam did. As for Mitch Longley, he came in September 1991

She was born on Somerset. When their marriage crumbled, (I think Sam had an affair) Lahoma took her and left. Sam then went back to Bay City but eventually found them and left to go be with them.

He was good as an attorney & he was involved in Caroline's art gallery & he played tennis. Did he have a romance? After AW he was on that prime time show Providence with Melina and with Tyne Daley as a Social Worker.
