It also helped that the writing seemed tailored for each of the actresses playing Gina. For example,I can't picture Robin Mattson playing the material Linda Gibboney played as Gina and vice versa. No way could I see Linda's Gina with Keith.
Exactly. He also doesn't help his cause by not doing his homework and getting things wrong. He doesn't have to be a hard-hitting soap journalist, but it's not hard to read up on shows and their actors/characters.
Does anybody know if either Marcy Walker or A Martinez were approached by other soaps or prime time to jump ship at the peak of their popularity and were there real threats to them jumping ship or were they pretty much untouchable as far as SB goes?
I mean, yes, by 1991 the writing was on the wall that this couple is no longer secure but what about 3-4 years prior to that?
I have to tell you that my transition from Gina 1 to Gina 2 has gone pretty smoothly. By the end of Linda's tenure I started imagining her as Robin, even trying to picture what Robin's gesticulation and general acting would be and many of Linda's scenes. This is sort of a unique experience for me because usually I get caught off guard with an actor or actress changes, but in this case, after so many years of knowing, and rewatching this time around I was prepared much better!
