ATWT:Judi Evans Joins The Cast


Recommended Posts

  • Members

Jamey Giddens didn't get his wish. Judi Evans (ex-Adrienne/Bonnie, DAYS;ex-Beth, GL) is returning to daytime tv just not with Wally Kurth over at Days of Our Lives. According to Soap Opera Digest, Evans took a role on As the World Turns. No word on who she'll be playing but look for the daytime vet to debut late August.

Judi is talented and it is good that she is back in the soap business. I still am not watching ATWT. I don't mind Adrianne not going back to Days. Justin should not be tied down. He can be a love interest for Carly.

Maybe a Sierra recast? It was said that Mary Beth Evans was returning, but the money was instead used for Cady McClain. Maybe Evans is a cheap recast. Shame though that we have her and Lynn Herring joining the cast. Both are great, like most of the cast, but that show is unwatchable.

It is shocking that ATWT can have such a talented cast, yet the show is unwatchable. It is junk. JP and Goutman are worse than hacks.

I have to wonder why...does Judi Evans even live in NY anymore?

I hope it's not a Sierra recast---I loved MBE in that role. I doubt it's anything long-term either though. It's probably something totally random like being the-really-dead-Riley's mother for like two episodes.

Will they recast Adrienne on DAYS?

Well since her role an ATWT is only for a couple months according to welovesoaps.com the show could just say she's taking care of the kids or is helping Jack/Steve with something. Or the show could just break them up.

I like Judi Evans but why do they continue hiring newbies. They need to write for their vets like Tom, Margo, Susan, Bob, Kim, Barbara and Lucinda.

I agree! Why keep adding new characters for short-term stints when they have characters that are never used?! I don't care about newbies, I want to see the characters I know and love!

    • The Rauch version seemed abruptly truncated in comparison to the full one—like the video and audio weren't actually edited at all for that, they just deleted a whole portion—but with a little money put in upfront to it could have worked.  So many memorable scenes in the early '90s had included that theme as background and/or picked up the next day and segued into that opening...even the brief hint of that music evokes memories for me.  Not to mention, they would have saved money in the long run without having to update cast photos or keep paying for new openings. I doubt you could prove a connection with ratings, but I actually think it's interesting that Y&R has remained the highest rated for so long and DAYS is (was?) one of the last soaps, while both stuck with their original theme songs.  And each theme became part of broader pop culture in some unexpected ways over the years: Mary J Blige, Close Encounters, etc.  Who's to say that kind of free publicity didn't help keep those shows on casual viewers' minds at some point?  But it's also a case of the chicken and the egg - a mainstream entertainment project would probably not give that kind of shout-out to a soap or its theme music if both weren't so familiar to people.
    • Yes to all of this. I mean I wouldn’t have mind seeing Nate find success and media attention with his Ask MD website or whatever but the switch to a media executive was the worst. 
    • Honestly, as long as they don't do the shaky cam stuff, I've been thinking it's bad enough now to lean into the Peapack model. Film at a real courthouse on the weekend instead of making a set, a real park instead of Chancellor park....
    • Jon Michael Reed in an Afternoon TV review of GL criticized the 75-81 theme as looking and sounding like a Tampax commercial.
    • RHOM What a chaotic but absolutely great show. Miami just gets better with every episode.  I've always loved Las Cubanas, but they have gotten very mean-girl-clique. Alexia has always been such a great RH, but last season's success has gone to her head. She is disdainful of Adriana (who, though hard to like by some, was 100% in the right( and lowkey threatened by Nicole. Larsa is, too. I can't believe Larsa is swanning around, photographing her feet in lucite heels, thinking that qualifies as work and that this makes her superior to a full-time anesthesiologist. Bringing in the lawyers could have been so contrived (which it was), but it was so breezy and the lawyers were in on the joke of it all.  I can't believe I once found Lenny hot. Those were gaslighting, threatening words the Peacock mics picked up. No wonder those sweet kids are acting out. They are confused and probably feel lowkey abandoned by their father for this new hoe.
