The soap opera writers' discussion

Recommended Posts

Joseph Gallison appeared on Where the Heart Is after he had left One Life to Live.

 

I have also read that Where the Heart Is wanted Carol Roux to play a role on the show.    I suspect that the producers and writers wanted to pair them romantically again.   Ms. Roux declined the role, and she later returned as Missy, on Another World-Somerset this time.

As far as I can see, she never acted again (at least in TV or film) after she left Somerset. I would love to see her work as Missy on AW, which I'm sure was wiped long ago. I think the only show I've ever actually seen her in was Bonanza, when she did a guest spot in 1970.

A few years ago Roux did a short film that was available on youtube, but for the life of me I cannot recall the title.

 

You can see her as Missy in the 1968 wedding of Lenore and Walter, which is still up on YT.

Carol Roux came from an interesting background. She grew up in foster homes, had a long-distance romance for a time with musician Rick Coonce of the Grass Roots, owned a cat she named Missy after her AW character, and married and divorced a professional dancer. 

 

I read in a "where are they now" column from 1978 that a fellow actor from Somerset (who was not mentioned by name) acknowledged that Ms. Roux was a good actress but caused trouble on the set, supposedly because she couldn't cope with the schedule. "Every day, Carol would come up with some real or imaginary illness and create problems." I wonder if she was bipolar. From reading her interviews, she seemed like a sweet girl who wouldn't set out to do things like hold up production out of malice. But who knows?

Did the character of Missy appear on the first episodes of Another World, or was she introduced in the early weeks or months after the show's premiere?

 

 

According to the AWHP , Missy arrived on May 8, 1964.

I was watching a clip of GH's closing credits from 1983 or so. I was surprised to see Guza's and Pratt's names in the writing staff. I want to say Anne Howard Bailey was HW at that time, but don't hold me to it.
