Brenda Dickson's Jill always seemed a bit GRANDIOSE for the workplace.  And her favorite line was always, "What do YOU want?  Can't you sheee that I'm bisshy?"  (while polishing her nails)  

 

I will always be grateful to Deven Green for exposing me to some of Brenda Dickson’s more outlandish idiosyncrasies

The Paley Center Archives has a screen test of Brenda and the following actors, so obviously an audition for the role of Brad.

Baker, David L.
Cheyne, Hank
Diamont, Don
Eckholdt, Steven
Kayser, Allan J.
Wilson, Robert

 

Also a 1974 TV Guide profiles the actors of the NBC series 'Chase'. One of them, Craig Gardener talks about having a semi regular role on Y&R. I suspect this might be Jill's boyfriend who was mentioned in a 1973 synopsis posted way back. I can't recall the character's name offhand.

Allan J. Kayser played the role of Bubba (Mamas grandson) on Mama's Family 1986-1990. He must have tested for Y&R before he won his role on MF.

 

Photo Craig Gardener who may have played Brent circa 1973/74:

Does somebody know when TV starts sending Y&R in widescreen?

 

Y&R's first HD episode aired on June 22, 2001 I believe and was simulcast in Fullscreen SD and Widescreen HD until 2012-2013. Unfortunately HD recordings of the early 2000s are close to impossible to get as owning the proper equipment to record them at the time was too cost-prohibitive for the average soap watcher.

Months ago I told @vetsoapfan I would post scans of Trish Stewart's Starlog interview. I finally am.

 

(there is only brief mention of Y&R, but Y&R was her best known show so I thought I could post them here)

Thanks for posting that.

Yikes, I remember Salvage 1.

It seems an odd show for Andy Griffith to be involved with but it seems he really wanted to be back with a weekly series. I think he had another flop 'The Yeagers[  around this time also. It took him a few years to get a hit with Matlock.

So what happened with Trish Stewart?

Even though Salvage 1 bombed, it would have got her name out there.

Joel Higgins fresh off the soaps also, went on to more success. Of course, it was easier for him as most series were built around men.

Did Trish actively pursue more work or quickly decide to give up?

A few years later she came back yo Y&R, much heavier. Had she been ill or no longer cared trying to be Hollywood slim.

So many questions...

I wonder why Trish left acting ? Someone said she was heavier because of post pregnancy weight, but i have no idea if that's true. Joel Higgins had several flops series till he hit pay dirt with Silver Spoons with Ricky Schroder & Erin Gray.

I uploaded the following to the vault:

January 12, 1990 episode

August 2, 1990 (short clip)

August 15, 1990 episode

October 18, 1990 episode

 

 

I'm wondering if anyone has these episodes? I ordered DVDs of these, but they were duplicates of other episodes or I was a sent an entirely different show, sigh. I'm hoping someone has these or anything else to help fill out that year. 

March 12, 1990

April 26 - May 3, 1990

May 30 - June 4, 1990

October 8-9, 1990

December 19-20, 1990

Wow - new eps from '90 are very rare, thank you so much!!  Ugh sorry to hear about those dupes... I actually had noticed that you had uploaded 3/12/90 to the Vault and removed it... now it makes sense.

Just watched 1/12/90 and every story was on point.

A great 1996 scene was uploaded to you tube.. 

 

 

After learning Dina did not left town (because of Katherine) and wants John back, Jill wants to cancel her divorce with her husband.

 

Also uploaded another rare scene from 1996.. so clearly mentioning Patty was a way to bring her back? I wonder why the story dropped 

 

Mary shows to Christine some Paul's photos from his childhood and tells her Paul has a sister, named Patty. Shocked, Christine asks Paul why he never told her about his sister.
