If ever there was a video that spells out the hard work, tenacity, passion and love for the genre, and the caliber of talent performing in the soaps, it is this video just released by Hulu and The Online Network called, “One Hundred Pages A Day”.

In a touching and revealing segment promoting the rebirth of All My Children and One Life to Live, several actors from AMC including: Thorsten Kaye (Zach), Francesca James (Evelyn) and Julia Barr (Brooke), Jordi Vilasuso (Griffin), Darnell Williams (Jesse) and executive producer Ginger Smith, fill the viewers in on the rigors of a day in the life of an actor on a soap opera!  From the pace of it, to learning the lines each day and more!

Cady McClain (Dixie, AMC) said it best when she related: “I feel the actors on daytime are really excellent.  It’s such a great opportunity for people to see how these actors can be.  And the the genre isn’t a silly genre,  it’s actually a really valid form of storytelling where actors are doing really amazing work.”

Watch “One Hundred Pages A Day” and let us know what you think of it? And what you know to be true about the hard work in front of the camera and behind-the-scenes that the actors in this medium go through to deliver the performances you love each and every day!

Loved that!!! It’s true it’s a very hard and fast paced shooting schedule and these people have to be on their game and know their stuff… and that’s also why some actors/actresses stand out with stellar work because they do so well in that genre and they immerse themselves in their characters and they know those characters so well and when the writing fits the character and when the writing and the stories are great… it’s why we are such fans!!! We get caught up in it with them and we see them so often… they become friends or almost… Read more »

I hope more and more people, viewer, critics and executives, see this video to understand the tremendous work the daytime community does. The pace these people keep is unheard of in nighttime and film work. I truly admire everyone associated with daytime drama production.

just want to say thank you for all your hard work .I believe these actors don’t get the respect and the credit they deserve because everyone has to do so much knit picking in a storyline it is what it is learn to calm down and just enjoy the soaps

Their hard work shows, All My Children is fabulous, I think I like this one better than the older one on ABC. Eat your heart out ABC! I watch the episodes 2 or 3 times a day, it’s that good. So glad it’s back on.

I loved watching the take behind the scenes. The actors truly show how hard they work and how much work it is to get the lines right. I thank all of you for your dedication and for you abilities to help make hard work pay off. Best of luck to to the show, the actors and the writers like Agnes Nixon. With love, a fan and friend always. Carle Wells!

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
