On-Air On-Soaps attended Thursday night’s Daytime Emmy Nominee Reception 2010 at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills.  Many nominees for Sunday night’s telecast where present, and we caught up with some of daytime’s brightest throughout the party and on the red carpet.  Here is what they had to say:

Scott Clifton nominated for Younger Actor as Schuyler Joplin on One Life to Live, a show he is no longer on, had this to say when we complemented him on his reel, “It’s so funny. I was not happy at all with my choice, because I had to choose my reel the day I got let-go from One Life to Live. So, I kind of just had to choose, and I went “Eeny meeny, miny, moe.”  The stuff I felt really good about was the material  in 2010.  You know, Scott Evans and Brett Claywell were let-go the same day I was. However, I did like the storyline though with Stacy and Kim, and Farah, and that I got to interact with those people.  It’s kind of self serving, and was great for me, and everyone else was having to wait around for awhile for their part of the story to play out. (Laughs)”   Clifton then commented on his new role on B&B that debuts in July! “I auditioned like everybody else, and when I auditioned I went, “Oh my Gosh. I know who you are!” and there was Brad Bell… who was nice and gracious. Then I did that read, and then did a chemistry read with Jacqueline Macinnes Wood (Steffy), and then they told me I had the job   I can tell you my character is not a bad guy, and his name is Liam Cooper.  He is a tech guy and computer nerd.  I don’t know much about this character, but I know Brad Bell had plans for him.”

GH Lead Actress  nominee, and now star of B&B, Sarah Brown, was getting revved up for Emmy night Vegas-style ! “I am a little nervous I will be honest.  It’s an interesting feeling knowing the decision has been made, so there is no reason to be nervous, and there is no way I can change those results,  (as the winners was chosen at that time a few months ago).  Wait till you see what I am wearing to the Emmys its gorgeous, that is all I am going to say!”

Stacy Haiduk fresh off  being not resigned by The Young and the Restless, and getting a new gig in September on Days of our Lives, talked about the shocking off-camera twist that leaves Emily and Patty out of the Genoa City bigger picture.  “I was really disappointment and saddened, but I said to myself to stay positive because I know my work will stand.  I always hope you do good work and they love you. I did not know they were going to wrap up Emily’s storyline, and it was a shock when I found out.  It was like somebody throwing cold water in your face.  My husband was upset.  He does not like seeing his wife get hurt, and it was hard for him, and he is my rock.  Michael Muhney just said, “ I told ya you get another job.”  It’s all good, you will see me over at DAYS as a Prison Warden!  I don’t know anymore about the character at this point.”

Shawn Christian of Days of our Lives, was excited for his fellow castmate, Crystal Chappell’s, Lead Actress nod, and working with her on Venice! “I don’t know what Crystal has up her sleeve, but  I am actually really excited to work on this project with her.  I see how hard she works on the Venice everyday.  That woman works tirelessly and I am go glad to be in it.   And it would be amazing if Crystal won the Emmy.  I saw the reels and she had a profound moment in it.”

AMC’s, Ricky Paull Goldin, a nominee for Supporting Actor chatted about the diversity and the competition in his category. “From my experience long doesn’t always win, (laughs) but I love Billy Miller, and it’s a hard category to get a nomination in.  That is what I have been told a million times, and I guess that is true.  I will tell you what… when you are an actor who cares about your craft, whatever happens; it was nice to get the nominated. ”

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.

Chadwick Boseman, ‘Black Panther’ Star and the Original Reggie On AMC, Dies At 43

In just heartbreaking news in an already dismal 2020, one of the brightest motion picture stars, Chadwick Boseman has died at the age of 43.

Boseman was battling colon cancer for the last four years of his life.  According to his rep, Boseman was diagnosed in 2016 with stage 3 colon cancer and his battle continued as it progressed to stage 4

Chadwick passed away with his wife and family by his side in his home.   In a shocking revelation, all of the movie performances in the last four years he has filmed were done in between chemotherapy and countless surgery.

Boseman is best known for his groundbreaking role as King T’Challa  in Black Panther.   His performance was the first ever Marvel Studio movie headlined by a black actor.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award.   He first appeared as the character in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Most recently, Chadwick appeared in the Spike Lee’s Vietnam War drama Da 5 Bloods, and this year he’s due to appear opposite Viola Davis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the film adaptation of the August Wilson play.  The actor starred in other films, including playing James Brown in Get On Up and Jackie Robinson in 42,  and the lead role in Marshall.

However, Boseman actually got his start on All My Children when he was the original actor cast in the role of Reggie Porter.  He appeared on the soap for only one week before the role was recast with none other than Michael B. Jordan, and their paths could eventually cross years later on multiple film projects.

In an interview in 2019, Boseman revealed what led him to be fired from All My Children stating:  “When I got it (the part), I was like, ‘This is not part of my manifesto. This is not part of what I want to do. How can I make it work?’ Because with a soap opera, you don’t know the full scope of what’s gonna happen — you don’t know where they’re gonna take the character, because they don’t always know where the character is going. And because of that, there’s possibly room for me to adjust this and change it and make it so it’s stereotypical on the page but not on the screen.”

For Boseman had issues with how Reggie was portrayed and how it was written with racial stereotypes.  In story, Reggie was a young gang member who was adopted by Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her husband, Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey). “I remember going home and thinking, ‘Do I say something to them about this? Do I just do it?’ And I couldn’t just do it. “I had to voice my opinions and put my stamp on it. And the good thing about it was, it changed it a little bit for Michael B. Jordan.”  Apparently the producers told Boseman he was too much trouble but took some of his suggestions on the role moving forward.
