Closest turnover time between recasts

Recommended Posts

Its really not that uncommon for recasts to take over the next day. As mentioned, the quickest would be AMC's Babe who changed actresses mid episode

That was interesting. I know it's not particularly uncommon, I was just curious about other instances.

In 1986, when Marley and Jake were married on Another World, Ellen Wheeler played Marley in the scene where she threw the wedding bouquet. This was her last scene as she and Tom Eplin were leaving the show. The bouquet was caught by Rhonda Lewin who briefly played Marley's identical twin Victoria before Anne Heche took over the roles in 1987. Wheeler and Lewin never appeared together on the show.

Teah Ive seen some of Lewin as Vicky on YT & OMFG, WTF was that?

Maybe thats why people over looked Anne being 18 when she started as Vicky cause she was so good in the role

I believe Mike Roy #1 was in bed with Erica, and when they came backeded* from the commercial break, it was Mike Roy #2.

*peaceful protest against people who continue to type "casted"

I'm pretty sure that Cassie (Laura Wright) was having a conversation with Josh in a parking garage--in a car, I think--and Nicole Forester continued the scene the next day, on GL.

That is exactly what happened

I don't think any recast can beat Mark Valley/Steve Wilder as Jack Deveraux recast on Days... the transition happened in the SAME scene.. no commercial break or anything. Camera was on Mark Valley in the shower with Jennifer, camera cuts away to Jennifer, and then cuts back to Jack played by a new actor!

My sister, a HUGE DAYS fan at the time, was so upset at this scene!! She had a huge crush on Mark Valley and even though she knew it was choice to leave, wanted him to have a decent sendoff. Nothing personal against Steve Wilder, but he was definitely one of the worst recasts I've ever seen (and needless to say, sis did not like his take on Jack at all). I think he lasted only a few months before Jack, Jen and Abby were written off (and this is when Stephanie Cameron was still playing Jen).

No loss, as Lewin was cast at the worst time on AW. She was a horrible Vicky. It wasn't just her, though, as Lauri Landry as Nicole Love should never have happened, either.

I can't even remember -- it was 11 (!) years ago when SN started re-running AW. I watched from the start but idr if there was any Rhonda Lewin Vicki? I don't think there was? I think it was only Anne Heche Vicki and she was surprisingly green at the start, and it took a while for her to get better (though she did get better.)

Yup and Laura and Nicole actually did those scenes with Robert Newman on the same day. They even sat next to each other and talked in the makeup room.

How long was Rhonda Lewin on the show before Anne Heche came on?

I was wondering about this-I am curious to know if they filmed this on the same day with both Alexa and Amanda on set, the next day, or what? Does anyone know?
