I liked that style of storytelling...some characters organically wouldn't know one another.  Victor encouraged Nina to pursue Ryan so he and Victoria didnt interact...I recall that.  Nikki and Nina had one scene in the late 90s after Victoria's baby Eve died where Nina expressed sympathy..and Nikki eyed nina leaving and asked Victoria if Nina was causing trouble..and Victoria said not at all.  And I do recall before Nina left in early 2000...her and Sharon interacted a lot since their kids went to Walnut Grove..and Nina was a supportive big sister to both Mackenzie and Megan Dennison.  Had nina stayed, she probably would have interacted with others.  She also was tested with Ashley's step brother Rafael and advised Cole on how to handle the Victoria/Ashley situation.

 

Agnes Nixon did that to a certain extent on AMC...but not as blatant as Bill Bell did.

 

Marland overdid the character interactions..some of which didnt make sense...and I did notice got better with that in the later years of his tenure in ATWT.

She would have been a good re-cast for Roberta Leighton (Casey Reed).

 

I like the way your mind works.

Just imagine if Casey became involved with Jack...oh the complications that could spring from that!

She does capture the spirit of Nikki, while watching I still felt it was Nikki, even if Melody would have done some things differently. I think especially her need to have Kay at the event felt pretty close to the way Melody would have played it.

There was another scene in 2011 when Nina and Nikki were both staying at Katherine house and when Paul came to see Nina I think Nikki walked down the stairs but we should all assume that they interacted okay with each other cause they were both living at Kay's 

 

I loved when Nina slapped Phyllis back in 2012, they needed to show Phyllis that she ain't the only bad girl that can throw down

I’m guessing Melody was just sick that day?

she does sound like her and does look like Roberta.

Robin filled in for Melody for quite a spell.

Maybe 4-5 weeks?

She definitely was playing Nikki when she went to Jabot and asked Jack to donate to the charity. That was the first interaction between Jack and Nikki

Thanks! 
for some reason I always thought they had a temp Nikki, in Melody's earlier days, so I'm glad this confirmed it. They also had a temp Jack for Terry Lester sometime in 1985 right?

Brett Porter subbed for Terry Lester at least twice as I recall. He was a poor replacement IMO, but Terry's shoes were hard to fill.

Thanks, thought that was right. 
It's amazing to think how many of the actors were probably "temp cast" in the 80's and we probably don't know or some just don't remember...I'm still amazed they had a different Lorie in that 1978 episode.

Getting back to unusual interactions. Just read a synopsis from Nov 1983 which stated Paul comforted Ashley over her troubles with Dina. Would have never even thought these two had much interaction back then, especially not outside of a professional or group social setting.

Interesting I only read about them meeting at Jack and Patty's wedding and it seemed like there was a hint that they might be tested for a pair but I've never heard of Paul/Ashley interacting like that
