I have an acquaintance that u5-ed on Amc, AW, ATWT, OLTL, etc that had worked with Eplin on AW. Several women and a few men accused him of cornering them in a particular wardrobe closet  hoping they would"help this out".

Curious who the men were....I was one who was upset when he joined ATWT.  He and LK did make a great couple though...

She said that GA would come to her dressing room door and stand there buck naked, making her feel cornered and threatened, and that he would make offensive comments which made her feel degraded. To me, this goes way beyond the "boys will be boys" scenario. He should have been fired.

WOW!!

IDK about the nudity, but I do know, or at least suspect, that GA's bullying toward JE is what killed Phillip and Beth's romance -- with the upside being that she was then paired w/ Vincent Irizarry's Lujack.  (She did leave GL, later, but John Bolger was Phillip by then.). But, on the plus side, it appears as if all that is now water the bridge, as JE or VI recently posted a photo online that had all three -- JE, VI and GA -- on the DAYS set.

 

 

How I loved Beth and Phillip story/romance. And maybe GA promised JE he'd keep his clothes on if she let him visit the set.

Not to take away from that but I was just thinking how he ended up pretty much destroying Molly as a character as after his exit everything given to her was terrible, aside from her 2010 return, which I thought was surprisingly strong.

 

I remember that 2004 went uncharacteristically completely downhill for Molly, and then we got the godawful Christina Chambers of Sunset Beach and Spyder Games infamy as a Molly recast and that was it. I recall the actress playing Nikki Munson at the time should have been playing Molly instead as she sounded and looked like Lesli Kay and could actually act.

Would someone be able to verify the relationship between Jef Hamlin and Rick Hamlin for me?

 

Since Jef was a love interest for Emily and I think Rick was paired with Susan for a second at some point, I've always assumed that Rick is Jef's father. But as it turns out, I can't seem to find this anywhere.

 

Another question: The character profiles on Soapcentral (which, I am aware, contain a lot of errors) state that Jessica Griffin and Tucker Foster used to date. However, as far as I'm aware, Tucker left the canvas in 1985, while Jessica didn't come in until 1986/1987 (I've read '87 in various places, but I'm pretty sure she was brought in during the Douglas Cummings storyline in '86). If they were never on the screen together, was it a part of Jessica's backstory? Or is it a Soapcentral error?

 

Thanks in advance!

Too bad about Eplin...a sexy guy doing unsexy behavior.

 

I can also think of a lot people who would have been happy to have GA appear at their door naked, but if he was trying to be an ass..I can see he and O'Leary being assholes together in their younger days..I wonder why Krista was left unscathed..I think she knew how to handle them, and Evans was an only kid right???

If I recall right I think Rick was actually Jef's uncle but I'd have to go back over some notes of mine. 

 

Not sure about Tucker and Jessica, may have been part of Jessica's backstory in the same fashion that Shannon had been "best friends" with Karen Haines.

Rick was Jef's father. There was conflict between them as Jef had not made the life choices Rick wanted him to make.

Thanks for clarifying Carl! I remember for the longest they were in complete opposite orbits and the connection was hazy by the time they both left town at the start of 1996.

Henderson Forsythe was 64 in that 81 ep and Linda Dano was 38 so quite an age difference.

 

Meanwhile real life couple Larry Bryggman was 43 and Jacquie Shultz was 25.

 

Funny how some  people looked older back then. I imagine a 43 yr old in todays soaps would have a much more youthful appearance than Larry B.

Honestly, aside from Breck Jamison's running in motion, that dream sequence wasn't that awful.  And even the running in motion could have been avoided if they had instead intercut his running on the beach with Frannie facing off against the thugs.
