I'm glad this happened on a Friday so that the show and participants have plenty of time to decide what to do before going back to live or zoom episodes. I was so looking forward to Kamala being on for most of the show, but instead we only got a few minutes. I totally understand the reasoning, but I wish we had more to time with her.
Today w/ Goutman was Locher as he should be for all interviews. Smooth, professional and respectful.
Lots of insights and questions into Goutman's acting, directing and producing career. Edge of Night, Another World and All My Children were all discussed...before getting to ATWT.
Locher even dared to ask Goutman about Martha Byrne ! I was shocked that a company man would go there...but of course thrilled. Basically Goutman answered that he wished it had not gone down the way it did and he knew what a loss losing Martha was. That if he had to do it over again he would have done it differently. He said if Mickey Dwyer Dobbin had still be there working with him, it would likely have ended differently. The interview is worth the watch just to hear him answer this question. I so wonder if Martha was at home watching...
He also revealed a silver lining that resulted: Noelle Beck was the one who got Julianne Moore to return at the end -- they were friends. So if Noelle had not been playing Lily, we likely would not have had Julianne's lovely farewell return.
