Oh, please let me be the one to send the board into a tizzy....Lisa was played by Anne Sayre (the brilliant NY stage performer who portrayed Mitzi for years on ATWT. And she did a good Lisa impression - her odd cadences, delivery and missed words/flubbed lines included!) According to the credits, Gregg Marx was supposed to play Tom but there were technical issues so Trent read his part (and Casey's - again due to tech issues.) 

 

I thought you weren't posting here anymore, but thank you for answering my questions. I didn't expect Eileen to participate, to be honest, and I just hope she is living comfortably and at peace. Anne Sayre is a fine actress. As for Tom, I'm sure Trent was fine. It's not as if he had anything to do at the end anyway.

Margaret Reed played Susan. I was hoping Marie Masters would've been there. I was hoping for Scott Bryce to be there but Wiggins filled in and the fans were thrilled to see him. 

 

Alan said the response to the reunion was received well that they were planning on future ATWT reunions for charity.

That's nice to hear. I hope Marie is doing alright. 

 

I'd really like to see the casts get some original scripts to play, like Big Finish does with shows like Dark Shadows. I guess that is not likely given P&G.

Me too on both counts. Liz, Don, Kathryn and Larry were all there. There was an opening, mid bumper with Dan Region and closing credits with a new 🌎 and the first theme music playing in the background...lol.

It's so lovely of them to do this for fans when we need the comfort of soaps more than ever, especially considering Larry's bad blood with the show. P&G and so many others in soapland did not care about what soaps meant to people. 

 

I hope Irna was somewhere watching, at least (likely with a long list of complaints...). This is what she created ATWT for.

'Twas an hour delightfully spent.

 

It was awesome. 

 

I actually enjoyed the interaction after the script more than the reading itself. It was interesting to see some of the actors meeting for the first time, finding out who had met whom before, despite the different eras. 

 

No doubt a lot of work and schedule rearranging went into making this happen. Kudos to everyone involved.

I remember hearing Kathleen Widdoes was in a play or something? I'm not 100 % sure on that. 

 

I was left with the impression that every character on the canvas was represented on the final episode.

The script itself is pretty bad but that's great that the actors could still find a way to entertain. They are pros so I would expect nothing less.

Melanie Smith had forgotten she had met Michael Park at a MB gathering....lol

 

Yvonne Perry giving glowing reviews of Maura acting and mentioning it wasn't this Mike...refering to Mark Collier(who looked so hot) to which Alan said let me move you together to do introduce yourself or something like that...lol. 

 

The stories of Benjamin...Colleen admitting they weren't that close but more to do with his demons.....

 

Douglas Marland love along with director Paul Lammers.

 

Wiggins saying his favorite storyline was Bob stalker. What a brilliant writer Doug was.

 

How Renee Props was such a good actress and underappreciated.

 

His blowup with a backstage crew member who the actors didn't like.

That would be awesome but not with the writers from the last 12 years though.

It was an hour for the script. Yes hearing it again didn't make it any better. Awful script and an hour of open chat after the reading. It lasted two hours.

The more I read about how P&G operated, their machinations, the more I begin to understand why Phillips may have been the way she was. She, not had quite a few character flaws but knowing how the industry treats women today, could you imagine how bad it must have been back then? There must have been many bitter pills to swallow.

Absolutely. She had her flaws, but she had a very tough road, both for her gender and for the battle she fought against the corporate suffocation and censorship that ultimately consumed and killed the genre. 

 

I agree that no one who was at the show in its later years should be writing scripts (maybe Richard and Carolyn Culliton...).

Irna wouldn't tell the suits what she really wanted to do..and would gradually introduce those things in her scripts.  By the time, the suits figured it out..fans were already hooked so the suits would leave her alone.
