Do you think they would have worked well together had he stayed?

I thought they had chemistry, but Ava is also different since Kiki was killed and her experience with Ryan, which makes for a different type of couple.

They had plenty of chemistry. My issue was with how they played it back then - sappy Ava talking about her childhood dreams of being a princess. That's not who Ava is and depicting her in a normal relationship as a quasi-good person doesn't work. But the chemistry is there with both Niks.

I just can't see Ava/Nik working with TC in the role. I never saw TC as an engaging leading man. I have seen even the most wooden actors up their game with her (*coughMarkColliercough*)....but I can't see his Nik becoming emotionally connected to Ava.

I do wonder where Ava's story would've gone if the Nik story hadn't fallen through. Would she have still drugged Morgan because she was over-involved in Kiki's life? Or would she have come back all about Nik? If there's no drugging, there's no fire, there's no Griffin (oh, if only....) and possibly no Ryan.

Oddly enough, I thought the only pairing he ever had that worked was with Natalia Livingston's Emily. I could see chemistry between them from their first scene (and it spilled over into real life for awhile).

I do wonder how long the character of Jill would’ve lasted on Y&R had Brenda Dickson stayed. She still looks great, but her style of acting and the quality of it I can’t even see lasting into the 90s. I either see her being written out or having a vastly different trajectory.

I do wonder if Dickson would have toned down the acting... because she was told to camp it up by producers.. which went against what Bell wanted.

I do think Jill vs Nina would have gone vastly different had Dickson stayed in the part.  I don't think Kay/Jill would have teamed up against Nina had Dickson stayed in the part.

At the same time, Jill vs Kay changed once Jess Walton took over.  Dickson was more controlled/sarcastic in her interactions with Kay.. with Kay acting angry.   Once Jess walton took over.. Jill became more intense and likely to get physical.

To echo others, I can’t imagine Michelle Stafford playing anything Cynthia Watros is currently playing as Nina on GH, *especially* the Sonny relationship. CW is totally credible in soft, emotional scenes with Phyllis and Lenny as well as baby Wiley in ways that MS could *never* pull off.

Stafford has it in her to play emotion and empathy but she’s soooo self-conscious in scenes whereas CW is far more grounded. CW has done her best with a poorly conceived character and has made her watchable.

Has anyone heard anything about TC lately?  Since that arrest?  I hope he is doing better.  I heard his wife was very well off so he doesn't need to work, but I hope he is getting help.

I was wondering the same thing. I haven't heard anything.
