I like Kim/Reva. But no character should be front and center all the time. Jeva's played out love story. Plus those awful scfi/supernatural stories did her no favors.

Yep. I gotta agree with you on that. Clone Reva, stepping through the painting that looked just like Olivia, time travel, being Amish ... OY!

A book is just that. A book. One persons perceptions and recollections. People mentioned in the book will always have different recollections and dispute the book. Take it for what it is. The truth is usually somewhere in the middle. 

Well, that's well said.

I love Kim Zimmer and Reva Shayne. I cannot beleieve that Reva has been gone for 10 years. I wish she could have crossed over to BB or YR.

She's been doing some theatre. She & Robert even ended up in the same play without knowing about it ahead of time.

GL Find your Light Feb 2007 youtube

 

In her book Zimmer said that this was the best,  most quality experience between her & Wheeler & that she was amazed at what a hard worker Wheeler was, etc. She said they had some good talks.

The name of the project, which is how I found it, is GL Find Your Light, and someone here thought I would find it in Feb. 2007, which is where it was. It was connected to the anniversary. I believe there's more up but this is suitable for an example of the inspiring work they did.

Donna, these are just browser search strings. If you want to post a YouTube link go to YouTube, search for the episode and if you find it post the YouTube URL.

Someone near and dear to me has just told me today that Kim Zimmer is one of her very favorite cryers! Goes along with that line about crying at the drop of a pin.

Was Holly tarnished beyond redemption?

I have to start off saying that I have always enjoyed the Holly character.  She is neither a hero nor a vixen, she falls somewhere in the grey area in between.  Holly Norris was simply a complex character.  She was ambitious, strong, and yet slightly neurotic.   Whereas characters like Reva wore their feelings openly Holly kept her feelings closely guarded, a pool of deep still waters.  The scene from 1979 where her husband Roger Thorpe rapes Holly has become a memorable piece of Guiding Light history.  One of those iconic markers that even if it was before your time (like me) you know about it and have watched the amazing acting between Maureen Garrett and Michael Zaslow.  But it was the late 90s when the character of Holly really took a beating, a beating she never fully recovered from.  It all began with the sudden romance between Holly and Fletcher Reade that would lead to their marriage in 1995.  Months after they married Holly learned she was pregnant which left them both shocked, yet happy.  They also learned that their unborn child would be born with Downs Syndrome.  Though Holly thought of having an abortion she decided against it and later gave birth to daughter Meg.  Later they learned that Meg was born with a hole in her heart and needed surgery.  Holly and Fletcher remained happily married until 1997 when Holly decided to let Roger back in her life.  Roger and Holly’s closeness didn’t go unnoticed by Fletcher, who after seeing Roger give Holly a “grandmother’s” ring, asked Holly point-blank if something was going on between them.  After Fletcher caught Holly and Roger in an embrace, devastated, Fletcher left town with Meg in tow.   Holly fell into a deep depression and turned to alcohol for comfort.  Holly’s brother Ken,  who’d been in an institution for decades, noticed she had a drinking problem and didn’t want to watch his sister destroy herself.  Sadly, Holly let it slip that Jeffery Morgan, not Buzz Cooper, was Rocky’s father which ultimately led to the death of Jenna Bradshaw.  Though it appeared as if Holly was getting her life together, several strange occurrences began to happen in Springfield.  Harley Cooper was given a gift basket that contained a poisoned apple and Vanessa Reardon found herself bit by a poisonous spider. When each instance came with a nursery rhyme, it became clear that Springfield had a “Nursery Rhyme Stalker” who was targeting Springfield mothers ... Soon it was revealed that Holly was the Nursery Rhyme Stalker.  But this was not before she had kidnapped most of the children in Springfield including: Kevin and Jason Marler (her grandchildren), Susan LeMay, Rocky, Marina, and Henry “Coop” Cooper, Shayne Lewis, Lizzie Spaulding, Tammy Layne and Roger Joshua Jessup and held them against their will.  Thankfully when Fletcher heard that Holly was the Nursery Rhyme Stalker he returned to Springfield and convinced a judge that it was his actions that caused Holly to go off the deep end.  FLASHFORWARD to 2004 and Holly learned of Roger’s death from a man named Sebastian Hulce who claimed he was Roger’s son.   Sebastian asked Holly to take a trip to Santo Domingo to celebrate Roger’s life.  They stopped in the same hotel Roger kidnapped her years ago and even saw a waiter that resembled Roger.  But Sebastian then held Holly captive; he was dying and needed Holly to contact Ed for the cure.  After a long (and awful) storyline Sebastian freed his But Sebastian then held Holly captive; he was dying and needed Holly to contact Ed for the cure.  After a long (and awful) storyline Sebastian freed his hostages, yet Holly stayed behind to bid him farewell. Alone, Sebastian made a convincing plea for why he and Holly should be together but Holly resisted. She really had no interest in Sebastian. She was constantly conflicted by her emotions regarding Roger, torn between love and hate.  They were at their core toxic, but so very beautiful to watch.  When asked if there were any storylines she didn’t like, it is no wonder that Maureen Garrett answers with the “Nursery Rhyme Stalker” and falling in a Stockholm syndrome type of love with her kidnapper Sebastian Hulce.  They were both awful storylines.  One “tarnished” Holly Norris and the other was so out of character for Holly it was hard to watch. (The actor who played Sebastian was very talented. However, at one point in the story, he forced himself onto Holly for a kiss.)

Donna, there are transatlantic flights shorter than that post. Could you please, for the umpteenth time, not copy and paste huge walls of text into threads??? Nobody is going to read that. We've tried being nice, but I think everyone is well and truly fed up. Stop apologizing if you're not going to stop this nonsense.
