Y&R: Popular Character Recast (Confirmed)

It would be. But so many are "stop whining about Heather Tom" (not on here, but a few ...) lol. We whine and want her back because she actually embodied the role and gave incredible performances. Over a decade and I STILL want her back. That should honestly say a lot.

 

Heinle has been checked out since she debuted and that hasn't changed. I see a "well, I'm used to her" ... no, you shouldn't just "be used to her" ... and I lol'd seeing people think she did such an amazing job. I just find her dull as a dishrag. She has some OK moments but Victoria as written just isn't what I want Victoria to be. Victoria should be fierce. Not a crying doormat. Heinle seems to have forgotten how to be tough and fierce. She's good for some roles (she'd be great as crying doormat Katie! See, Tom even elevates Katie just because of her acting choices). But then again, some folks prefer quiet, "understated" actresses like Heinle and Marci Miller to more "scenery chewing" Tom and Kate Mansi. But I look at Tom and Mansi as actually, you know, investing and making an effort. Heinle and Marci Miller bore me to tears. I've found them similar. (Though Miller was far more checked in and did try, just wasn't my preferred choice for Abby; the writing didn't help, of course; the writing improved instantly when Mansi came back). I'd probably greatly enjoy Marci Miller on a Lifetime or Hallmark movie or in a primetime role. But I think soap acting does involve a tiny bit of scenery chewing from time to time, I guess. It's all about "selling it" ...

 

And I don't care if Heinle won an Emmy. So did Natalia Livingston and Grandma Boring from AMC. It's not a high mark anymore ...

 

I mean, I never disliked Heinle on any other soap ... she just isn't Victoria to me. Was I wrong in thinking she was more 'alive' in her other roles? I really do feel she's been checked out. More so after Miller exited. IDK. She's just never worked for me.

 

It seems so obvious that Heather is better as Victoria and Heinle would be more suited for Katie on B&B. But at least Tom earns some Emmy's for B&B so there's that. I bet Heinle would have been dumped years ago if she were playing Katie ... just saying ...

Sorry Kman101 I understand you don't like Amelia and I see you making references to other actors or characters from other soaps,  who I do not know. I mainly have watched Y&R and don't really know these other characters or actors you mentioned.  

 

I do get what you are saying of course.

NP....I tend to do the same myself. LOL...

 

I know a lot of actors in soaps but not familiar with some or characters on others.

 

I did however watch back in the old days,  popular s/l's on other soaps other than Y&R...... Jessie and Angie, AMC....Jenny and Greg AMC, Luke and Laura GH (years ago), ATWT had a few back in the day as well (which was great writing back then) 

 

I was big on Dynasty years back. Loved the catfights. LOL
