All I can say is that Swan's very right-wing leanings date a LONG time so it is not a late-life switch on his parts. I knew about them twenty years ago and I am just a random soapwatcher.

 

Swan and Reed dated over 30 years ago. I was referring to them. I'm going to go on ahead and admit that, unless I see documented proof, I don't believe that Carter and Swan were in a romantic relationship. Just call me a 'Doubting Thomasina'.

Emmy Award-winning actor Nicolas Coster will be my guest in The Locher Room on Wednesday, May 19th at 3 p.m. EST / 12 p.m. PST. In his new memoir, Another Whole Afternoon, Nicolas shares his reflections from a London kid's transition from a British privileged life to becoming an American: from cowboy to factory worker, from movie actor to Presidential Guard, on Broadway to daytime soap opera fame and prime-time TV star. A turbulent but rewarding love life! All in search of creative expression. Along the way introducing disabled scuba divers and fellow celebrities to the wonders of the great undersea world. Truly harrowing Atlantic crossings as well as tranquil tropical splendors...these memories reflect an adventurous life many would envy. Daytime television fans will recognize Nicolas from his popular roles on As the World Turns (Edward Grimaldi), Another World (Robert Delaney) and Santa Barbara (Lionel Lockridge) to name a small number of those roles. In his 70-year career, Nicolas has appeared in over a dozen soap operas, countless primetime television shows and scores of stage and screen productions. This memoir "Another Whole Afternoon" is his first behind the scenes retelling of his life in front of the camera and his adventures beyond it.

One, I hadn't realized Costner was still alive, or had written a previous book. Hopefully Locher can get some good stories from him. But FCOL, couldn't he get the name of his ATWT character straight? It's Eduardo Grimaldi. Attention to detail counts.

DD, I stand corrected. I hadn't heard about her 2019 Las Vegas troubles--and, looking on the web a few minutes ago, they sound pretty sad. I also deleted my Facebook (and, earlier than that, my "FB friendship" with Michael Swan) in Spring 2019, so... somehow I missed reading about her troubles. I'm kind of surprised the current soap websites (I regularly peruse Daytime Confidential) never posted anything about it (as they have about other former soap stars' legal troubles) unless I missed that, too. (YIKES! LOL)

 

Unless Finn or Michael came forward and said they're no longer together, I don't think most people would have any idea whether or not they'd broken up.

 

DramatistDreamer, just for the heck of it, I just googled "Michael Swan Finn Carter" and this turned up first on the list. It's from Finn Carter's Instagram account back in December 23, 2015. She commented on the post  "Photo by Michael Swan 12. 10. 15" Who really knows what kind of relationship they had (just hot sex--and don't talk politics?!) or for how long, but I feel like this supports what I posted about seeing on Swan's FB a few years ago. https://www.instagram.com/p/_p76MLimn9/?hl=en

Shrugs. She and Scott Bryce used to have dinner whenever he went to L.A. for work. They weren't dating. Finn, like LF do portraits of friends and family, perhaps Swan too. Who really knows? It's cryptic.

Promo for Search For Tomorrow and As The World Turns from 1981. 

 

 

Ah, a promo for the infamous "John rapes Dee" only kinda sorta not.  And totally agree with you, this group Annie, Brad, Dee, John, were morose and depressing and CONSTANTLY on..and I was glad when the Dobson's spun John off into enemies with James (while keeping Dee in the mix but only on the side.) Days and days would be full of weird Brad looking longlingly at Dee and Dee doing the same and being yelled at by John and David..David angry all the time, Ellen looking worried, Nancy and Chris pulled out of moth balls for walk ons...

Yikes at the audio/video syncing issues but it's nice to see an episode where Nella is actually working as a nurse, further proof that she was NOT a candy striper, lol.

Too bad there are almost no episodes on YT of Nella in the nursing program with Meg.

That scene with the nurse who refuses to care for Hank because he is the partner of an AIDS patient is a reminder of where society was where HIV and AIDS were concerned--the prejudice. There also seems to be a hint of homophobia in the nurse's stance as well. Also a reminder, perhaps that while we judge the characterization of Hank and his relationships from able millennium perspective, the reality of what it took to get this story onto daytime television, on perhaps the most conservative network at the time is a whole other matter.

Gosh, I'm sorry that a week or two ago I posted a mis-rememberance of what Nella Franklin's job was back in 1988-89. I never insisted that she was a candy striper and personally never asked for proof. While I respect your wealth of knowledge about ATWT, I'm not sure a "LOL" about my saying she was a candy striper was necessary.

Not to wade into any arguments but I'm not sure the comments were directed at any one person - I may have also referred to Nella as a candy striper in the past, because as mentioned above, there are huge gaps in episodes and I have some vague memories of her in that role.

Iconic moment. And the guard in the back? Such a delayed over-arm reaction. But you can tell Colleen Zenk was having a BALL!

 

LOL. Right? What was he doing? It's hard to believe a courtroom would have a big window like that. Especially one so flimsy.
