REST IN PEACE, PEGGY...YOUR SEVEN DECADES OF ACTING LEAVE AN UNFORGETTABLE LEGACY FOR ALL YOUR FANS...THANKS FOR SPENDING THE LAST HALF OF YOUR CAREER IN SALEM...MA BRADY WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN...I'M SURE FRANK'S BEEN WAITING TO DANCE AN IRISH JIG WITH YOU UP THERE...
 
 
Farewell Caroline & Grandpa Shawn:
 

Young Peggy has a striking resemblance to Lexi Ainsworth. Lexi would be a good SORAS for Sydney DiMera.

Sad news.  I loved her on DAYS.  Especially her complicated relationship with Victor and the story about Bo being their son due to an affair.

 

I miss those multigenerational aspects of soaps.

From 1969, Peggy as Iris Fairchild on GH.  This was the first role I remember seeing her play.

May she rest in peace. 

 

This is so sad. It makes me thankful that we still have the chance to appreciate the presence of veteran actors like Bill and Susan Hayes.

 

When all our beloved vets are gone, daytime TV is going to be a stark place.

I will never regard today's "stars" like Roger Howarth, Maurice Bernard, Steve Burton, Farah Fath, etc., with the same reverence as the legendary actors like McCay who graced our screen for decades.

Wow, what a huge loss for Days. In the last 25 years they've lost almost all the heads of their major families: Macdonald Carey, Frances Reid, Joseph Mascolo, Frank Parker, and now Peggy McCay. Hard to believe John Aniston is the only one left of that generation.

And most of them passed in just the last few years, sad how we have lost some of the best.

How sadly ironic that Ms. McCay passed away so soon after Frank Parker. So many older soap vets are leaving us now. So sad.

 

May Peggy McCay RIP.

 

On a sort of morbid note, I wonder if Days will now kill off Caroline off screen as it killed off Shawn Sr.?

End of an era. She really helped to invest Daytime with feeling and intelligence, thanks to her authentic acting.

Hang in there John Aniston. Ditto John Clarke, even though we haven't seen you since 2004. 

 

Sad to think how many of the veteran Lifetime Achievement Award recipients at the 2004 Emmys are no longer with us...

It's especially sad that all the while we're losing our elder soap actors/stars, the industry as a whole is doing nothing to amplify and preserve/restore their work.

At times, it's as though today's soaps would rather we forget about the history and the great stories and performances that so many have enjoyed over previous decades of daytime soap history.

 

R.I.P. Ms. McCay, may your talent/work never be forgotten.

    • Well I definitely applaud them. Yes, they could have done much much better at least with one of them storylines. But the messages were never lost on me. I was more than touched by Stuart and Lily. @j swift what did you feel about Spike storyline? I remember being so happy they were giving that to one of Erica’s grandchildren.    Stuart portrayal was like a combination of many different types of disorders imo. He represented to me a lot of the fredo Corleone’s of the world. He was so relatable, I saw so many people I knew in him.  I saw some of myself in Stuart, he inspired me, gave me hope too. I’m sure Agnes could have done a better job at giving him a clear illness, I’m fine with the way things played out though. I have a cousin who is kinda special needs(not sure if that’s the right term, my apologies if it isn’t) and he has went on to have many relationships and have children. I don’t believe he’s capable of taking care of himself or the children, but he has them.   I do agree with you, about these missed opportunities, especially with Lily and Jonathan. Do you think every social issue or Character driven storyline is soapy enough, to be told?!     Are you guys excited to hear Wisner Washam new interview?   
    • I strongly doubt  Valentini,  Van Etten and O'Conner know who Conner is. Conner was a fairly obscure character to begin with.
    • Speaking of passions, How exactly did that show get cancelled. I know it was dead last but it did well in the demos they want.
    • I don't feel sorry for Kenya because she strikes me as very self-aware and she knows that her role on the show is being an antagonist and she is more than happy to earn her paycheck by stirring s**t. She knows what she is here for and she is happy playing the part and I am fine with that since she seems to be. But I continue to be fascinated by the number of times Kenya has been subsequently proven absolutely right on things that were hotly debated - and generally against her - in the fandom.  
    • I mean, not to be snarky, but Days has been NBC's only soap for twenty years so it is kind of easy to be their "favorite soap".
