OLTL Tribute Thread

Weren't their lawsuits because of the way JFP treated pregnant actresses? For every actor who's a JFP supporter, there's another who can't stand her. I remember Marcy Walker having some choice words for JFP during MW's time at GL.

 

Kari Wuhrer sued GH/ABC for being fired due to her pregnancy under JFP's watch. That case was settled out of court, IIRC.

 

I didn't know that MW said anything negative about JFP while on GL. They had such success together on SB, so GL must have been a bad experience.

I believe Marcy Walker felt that JFP had uses her (Mw) to keep her job as EP.

 

I thought JFP did a lot of damage to OLTL during her tenure: the women became hysterical and desperate for men. The women were os dumbed down but Erika Slezak thought she was wonderful.

I know so little about the later Tony Lords that I didn't even know who Viki was talking with (I thought it was Brad Vernon). At least it's a rare nice family moment.

Now, Tony Lord is one character I wish OLTL had brought back from the dead.

 

I wish the show had done a storyline where Viki decided to pen her memoirs.  If only because I know we would've had SOME flashbacks.

OMG, Chip Lucia was a HORRIBLE and BAFFLING recast in the role of Tony Lord.

He was the third, right? And I guess the last. 

 

Was Pat's only story after his death the rivalry with Dorian?

Lucia was the fourth (after George Reinholt, Jimmy Jontz, and Philip McHale).

 

Jontz only appeared briefly after GR departed. TPTB said at the time that they wanted a "WOW!" actor to replace GR, but it quickly became apparent JJ was not it. PM was not particularly great either, alas, but CL was the worst by far. The show should have known better than to attempt replacing GR.

 

Pat was kidnapped by the psycho Kyle (seen in this new clip talking to Ed), but as the Tonys came and went, and particularly after the character died, she did not get much story focus. Courtney had no chemistry with any of the replacement actors. Her best chemistry was with Tom Fuccello who played her husband Paul Kendall, but the show decided not to go there. She was tested with Michael Zaslow when he first arrived, and had great sparks, but ABC mysteriously decided to dump her and David was then paired with Jenny Vernon.

Thanks. I didn't know about Jontz. I guess he was the Ken Kenitzer of his day. 

 

It's a shame they didn't try harder with Tony.

A pity that didn't pan out. This might have been a mess, continuity-wise, but I'm now trying to imagine Zaslow as Tony #4 (with at least some of David's backstory).
