Nic also said on FB a few years back that he and John Considine were the pranksters of AW. He said they got into trouble with Paul Rauch so much it was like being called into the principal's office.

Considering everything he has done, I hope there is a lot of dirt and he isn't too polite.

I had forgotten that, but yes!   Plus, I recall Nic has called Doug Watson a true gentleman a couple of times.   

 

But if Nic doesn't discuss George Reinholt and the atmosphere in the studio in 1975, I'm going to be disappointed.  Steve Frame and Robert Delany were best friends, and worked together at Frame Enterprises.  Nic probably had more scenes with Reinholt than even Jacquie Courtney.  So when Reinholt was fired, I'm confident Nic had opinions about it.   I just hope he shares those opinions, whatever they are.

A hardcover of Eight Years in Another World is a rare expensive find, so I wanted to share that it's available for Kindle. I just bought a cyber copy for a little under ten bucks.

That would be great. Nic wrote some beautiful words of tribute on FB about GR after the latter passed in 2013.

I didn't know that.  Nic seems to be a very positive person.

Yeah.

 

A lot of his work is available on Kindle. I've thinking about maybe buying one of his plays from there too.

For anyone who's watching the AW reunion, the building that housed the AW studio is still standing. However, it's now a self storage facility.

Nic Coster (Robert Delany on AW) announced on Facebook a couple of days ago, that his memoir will be released very soon -- within weeks, I believe.  In an earlier FB post, a few months ago, he did promise a couple of chapters about his experiences on Another World.   He doesn't talk about AW much on FB.  But he has commented he loved working with Susan Sullivan, did not enjoy working with Beverly McKenzie, and liked Harding Lemay's writing.  He has never commented (on FB) about the actor firings of 1975, the atmosphere in the studio, or George Reinholt (with whom he shared many scenes).   I hope we get lots details in his book.   

 

Looking for information about Nic Coster's memoir, I discovered his ex-wife's: The Odyssey and The Idiocy, Marriage to an Actor, A Memoir. She is extremely bitter about their relationship and he (under the pseudonym Richard Forest) is portrayed as horrible. 

 

 So far there haven't been any mentions of Another World backstage or his costars. However there was a chapter about how Jacqueline Kennedy engaged him to teach JFK Jr to scuba dive.

Wow, I never knew that. Yikes.

I know neither of these folks personally and it could very well be that he is horrible but I have been around long enough to know former romantic partners are very very rarely the best witness of someone's character. Breakups can warp people's perceptions of people and interpretation of events that until then were not problematic.
Take the gossip with a grain of salt, me says. Anybody who knows a divorced couple knows as much.

Absolutely. Everything is through the lens of how she has to fight him for alimony while he's making good money. And to be clear, the "horrible" behavior in the flashbacks of the marriage is generally selfishness and lack of consideration. 

 

Coster and his wife were in this Geritol commercial:

"My wife. I think I'll keep her."

 

That, along with "I'm Cheryl -- Fly me!," has to be one of the most misogynistic ad campaigns ever.

    • Most networks were thinking about getting out of soaps at that time and Passion was the first that went, then Guiding Light and As The World Turns, then of course One Life To Live and All My Children. The truth is that General Hospital was next to go if they hadn't seen that the replacements weren't doing well (I think NBC ultimately ended up giving up Passions time slot to affliaties, but I might be wrong) and that's what's so far kept the remaining soaps on air. They know if they lift them off at this point they'll not only get replacements doing worse, but also likely affect the rest of the remaining daytime line up negatively. I assume they've figured the remaining soaps DO have a unique audience that won't tune in unless there's a soap on air.

    • Well I definitely applaud them. Yes, they could have done much much better at least with one of them storylines. But the messages were never lost on me. I was more than touched by Stuart and Lily. @j swift what did you feel about Spike storyline? I remember being so happy they were giving that to one of Erica’s grandchildren.    Stuart portrayal was like a combination of many different types of disorders imo. He represented to me a lot of the fredo Corleone’s of the world. He was so relatable, I saw so many people I knew in him.  I saw some of myself in Stuart, he inspired me, gave me hope too. I’m sure Agnes could have done a better job at giving him a clear illness, I’m fine with the way things played out though. I have a cousin who is kinda special needs(not sure if that’s the right term, my apologies if it isn’t) and he has went on to have many relationships and have children. I don’t believe he’s capable of taking care of himself or the children, but he has them.   I do agree with you, about these missed opportunities, especially with Lily and Jonathan. Do you think every social issue or Character driven storyline is soapy enough, to be told?!     Are you guys excited to hear Wisner Washam new interview?   
    • I strongly doubt  Valentini,  Van Etten and O'Conner know who Conner is. Conner was a fairly obscure character to begin with.
    • Speaking of passions, How exactly did that show get cancelled. I know it was dead last but it did well in the demos they want.
