ALL: You couldn’t imagine THEM playing THAT story

This is for characters played by multiple actors over the years. What are stories that would have seemed insane or unbelievable played by another actor/actress in the role (but worked with the actor at the time)?

 

For some reason, I just can’t see Susan Flannery’s middle-aged Laura screwing Mark Valley’s Jack in a psych facility on DAYS. Might be just me LOL.

I can’t imagine Tamara Braun’s Carly seducing Tony.  I can see Laura Wright’s version doing it, but not TB.

 

I also cannot imagine David Lewis playing the 1990’s era Edward Quartermaine, especially the story with the Ward family.  Ingle played the sorrow and romance side better.  But I did love David Lewis.

 Jack Abbott playing the romance with Luan and discovering he's Keemo's dad would have had a whole different flavor with Terry Lester in the role.

I didn't realize but Peter Bergman is actually 3 years younger than Lester.

I can't see Terry Lester playing out any of Jack's 1990s storylines.

Yes. I've never seen the 1970s episodes where Flannery played Laura, but just the notion of Susan Flannery playing the mom of Melissa Reeves' character has always made me laugh. I can't exactly see the family resemblance! 

 

Speaking of the Horton women, I can't imagine Marci Miller's Abby having an affair with EJ or lying about sleeping with Austin.

I’ve been watching older episodes, and it would have been fascinating to see DL’s gruffer Edward in the Ward story.

Nope, not just you, lol.  For that matter, I can't see Matthew Ashford's Jack sleeping with Susan Flannery's OR Jaime Lyn Bauer's Laura under ANY circumstances.

I can't imagine SJB's Carly married to Jax.  TB's Carly yes, but not SJB's.  I can't remember if SJB's Carly and Jax ever really interacted though.

Definitely can't see James Franco's Franco playing him like an insufferable clown the way that RH does.

 

DOOL

Can't see Kyle Brandt's Philip playing the scheming little villain like JKJ does.

 

AW

Can't see Beverlee McKinsey's Iris sleeping with younger men Michael and Evan the way Carmen Duncan's did. Especially considering that BM's Iris was mortified when Elena started sleeping with Dennis.

Can not see ED playing Kristen like this whining, simpering victim she is now or playing out tru luv forever with Brady even though they did have good chemistry

WN's Roman with Isabella (I know John wasn't Roman but I could never imagine any incarnation of Roman going for someone like her)

GH

MW's Kate doing any of that looney DID stuff KSu did

Agree 100%.

 

Didn’t Marj’s version of Alexandra Spaulding become a drug kingpin?  I cannot fathom Beverlee playing that.

 

I also cannot imagine Liz Keifer playing out some of the more villainous turns from the earlier versions of Blake.  The stuff with Phillip and even the earlier stuff with Eleni.  Sherry would have had a hard time hiding her true feelings about having twins with different fathers.  I can only imagine her trying to act that.


I accepted a lot from Mark Valley that I never would have from Matt.  He was a good actor and incredibly attractive, had a little of Matt’s sarcasm but was nothing like the OG Jack.  But I liked him!
