GH: John Reilly has passed

Recommended Posts

Sad news. He played Sean with a lot of humor and the right touch of gruffness, taking a supporting, one-note character and making him a touchstone for many viewers. He and Sharon Wyatt were so so good together. 


I'm sorry that his ATWT work, which was apparently terrific (so much so that viewers could not accept the return of the former actor to the role), is all lost to time.

Sad news.


Sean was such a great character.  I always loved the special relationship he had with Felicia.  I was sad when they wrote Sean and Tiffany off the show.

Sad to hear this.


My first experience with him was as Alistair on Passions but now that I've watched more of him as Sean, I could see how good he really was.

 I only really know him as Alistair on Passions,  and while the character was a comic book character during his run, Reilly at least made the most out of him.

    • Have been scrolling through a site with random old Australian TV listings and discovered that ATWT aired in primetime in Sydney on Ch 7 in 1974! It's from Thursday Nov 28th at 8.30pm, This is the blurb... Carol returns home and asks Tom to give up Natalie Bannon's case. Grant and Joyce have a showdown and Grant decides not to divorce her until she has fully recovered. So it seems not to far behind the US storylines. Quite frankly I'm surprised that Oz execs would take to a daytime soap that had been running for nearly 20 years and expect viewers to be interested. Meanwhile the same channel was airing DOOL, Y&R and GH during the day. The Melbourne listings for the same evening do not have ATWT in the schedule, in fact the entire schedule was different. So it looks like ATWT was Sydney only exclusive. Wonder if it was nightly and how long it lasted?
    • Ahem, did we know that Tanner Novlan (Dr. Finn Without Personality) is married to actress Kayla Ewell who starred on B&B from 2004-2005 as Caitlin Ramirez (daughter of Sydney Penny and Lorenzo Lamas) who was Thomas' first teen love!?   We now go back to your regular scheduled programming in session...
    • I love me some Lauren but had to laugh at her lecturing Sally and Summer on women treating women well. Send them an ice cream sundae why don’t you Lauren?
