ANOTHER WORLD:

Rhonda Lewin as Vicky after Ellen Wheeler departed..... 

David Canary as Steve Frame. He should have been a different character. Nothing against David.

Eric Scott Woods as Evan Frame.

Brian Krause as Matthew Cory.

Christine Tucci as Amanda Cory.

 

Also thought the guy on OLTL that took over the role of Seth seemed too old for the part. Steve Harris?

But I thought she was good as an Amanda recast. She and Mark Pinter (Grant) had stellar chemistry.

ATWT:Claire Beckman as Sabrina, Roger Howarth as Paul, Jason Kincaed as Tom Hughes, Lonnie McCullough as Linc Lafferty

DAYS: CR as Belle and VJ as Ciara, 

EON Kerrie Emerson as Jody Travis. Should have just written out Jody, KE should have just been a new character

DYN Karen Cellini as Amanda , Robin Strand as Adam in the movie

RH all the Mary's after Kate Mulgrew...sorry, KM EMBODIED Mary Ryan Fenelli

PAS...Most of the cast...

ATWT:Claire Beckman as Sabrina,  Lonnie McCullough as Linc Lafferty

 

GL... John Bolger as Philip. 

 

Claire Beckman was a bad recast because she wasn't Mary Ellen Staurt….I guess Marland forgot that Frannie and Sabrina were twins. I like Lonnie as Linc…he was totally opposite of blonde muscled previous Linc..but I thought Lonnie was a better actor.

 

John Bolger was another one who was totally different from the previous actor. It took a long time to get use to his Phillip. The whole 4 musketeers went out the window though with him as Phillip. I don't recall but did he work with Mary Kay Adams? I believe he did.

Peter Bergman's version of Jack is weepy and whiney. I wish Terry Lester would have stayed.

I never cared for PB Jack. His version of Jack was totally different from TL. TL left because he felt Y&R had become the Laura Lee Bell Show…..and I tend to agree with him. Cricket was on 24/7 and she wasn't that great of an actress. I believe TL objections were ignored so he left.  I loved Gregg Marx on ATWT but never saw him on Days. PB was totally miscast as Jack. The casting directors should have continued with the search for a better Jack.

When Mark Pinter was on Y&R, he mentioned in a SOD interview that he auditioned for Jack in 1989 but lost to Peter Bergman. I wonder how Mark Pinter would've been received as Jack.

I can't believe John Bolger is already 62.:huh:

I like MP as an actor but probably would have been the same as PB. Jack's personality changed when Lester left the role and PB took over. PB played a totally different character.

Vivienne Giovanni as Ciara

Going back, Louann Gideon as Liza on SFT. She was horrible, including the southern accent

Jayne Bensten as Nicole Travis/EON.  The worst decision Erwin Nicholson ever made, pressured by ABC.  They should have retired the character.

Kassie DePaiva as Blair.  Beyond insulting and racist to replace a Eurasian actress with a southern white girl.  Never worked.  I always hated Blair after that. Love KD though.  She was sorely miscast as Eve as well

I respectfully disagree with both. I loved Jayne as Nicole. I ran into her one day on the Upper West Side about a year after she had left and I asked her why she left. She said it was getting to be like a 9 to 5, which I did not get, but she really cool otherwise.

Yes, the re-casting of Blair was jarring, but Kassie ruled as Blair. I did love Mia as Blair also.

A lot... For example:

On DAYS:
-Guy Wilson as Will Horton was awful and has destroyed the character. 
-JP Lavosier as Philip Kiriakis. Why they don't has brought back Jay Kenneth Johnson?

On SANTA BARBARA:
-Eileen Davidson as Kelly Capwell. Firing Carrington Garland and replacing her with Eileen Davidson was a terrible decision. 
-John Novak as Keith Timmons. 
-Terry Leser as Mason Capwell. 
-Paul Burke as CC Capwell. 
-Margaret Michael as Santa Andrade.

Have you seen JKJ lately? He has bloated up and has a long *&^%% goatee. He has since joined the band ZZ Top.:D

He was terrible.

@frequentsoapfan Seeing that clip makes me cringe all over again.  Passions was one bad soap. I had forgotten that Blair Redford was on Passions…to pass him off as a latino is comical.

Especially as he was replacing the uber hunky and never clothed Adrian Bellani...

And they made Miguel a holier than thou hypocritical Catholic against magic. They already had ruined Fox with a recast and killed him off. Then we lost hot Miguel.

Could you tell us more about Impert? I've only seen photos.

 

Geoffrey Scott as Billy Lewis on GL is always going to be top of my list, because I loved Billy and I tuned in one day and he was being played by this impostor with a fake accent and absolutely zero chemistry with Maeve Kinkead or anyone in his family. I know Jordan Clarke put GL through a lot but at the time I had no idea of this and I was just angry. He just SUCKED. He wasn't any better on Dark Shadows. Then Billy was packed off to jail. It seems like on GL poor recasts ended in lengthy prison sentences.
