I can’t wait until Friday. These are a real treat each weekend. I’ve kept up with Van Harris’s projects over the years, but it will be good to hear the latest for all of them. And then Alan’s questions are perfect for discussion (e.g., do you remember your first day).

These reunion interviews are great. When can we expect to have Larry Bryggman, Elizabeth Hubbard, Kathryn Hayes, Eileen Fulton, Marie Masters, Patricia Bruder, or Kathleen Widdoes participating? I appreciate the actors who are showing up but, to be candid, the actors who spent decades on the show likely can offer more interest observations than someone like Chando or Kaba, who were on the show less than 5 years in the “dying decade.” My favorite interview so far was the first one with Don Hastings and Martha Byrne.

I totally agree. So happy I still get to see Maura West on General Hospital. Such a wonderful actress.

What about Kim Zimmer. She brought Reva Shaye Lewis to life. What a character.
I first started listening to on the radio when I was a young girl and continued from 1st to last tv showing.

I also listened to GL on the radio, and remember them referring to Billy in the playpen, and later after he grew up, they called him Ed, Dr.Ed Bauer.
I also listened to a lot of others. Do you remember Lorenzo Jones, Portia Faces Life, When A Girl Marries,Backstage Wife, to name a few? Those were the days. Fifteen minutes each, all day

Enjoyed the conversation even with some technical issues. Would love to know the actor that Van said had his script on the floor as a prompt for his lines. The others wanted to know who it was, and Van said he’d tell them after. Like everyone, they love gossip. It’s almost like it wasn’t ten years ago, and they could pick up where they left off with ATWT. The thing I love the most about these is when they are trying to remember something (like the coffee shop Java), then one person remembers and they are all excited. And everyone… Read more »

Do you remember seeing Don Hastings as a very young man on Edge Of Night? Seems to me he played Mike Carr’s first wife’s brother. Memory not so good, was a long time ago. Would also love seeing old episodes of Edge, great show, shades of Perry Mason.

I only watched the opening and closing of The Edge of Night in the ’60s. I loved the dramatic music and the announcer. I don’t think these episodes exist anymore … what a shame. There is a montage of the openings through the years on this website; it was fascinating to hear the music and changes through the years.

I watched The Secret Storm with my mother in the ’60s. I started watching The Edge of Night in the late ’70s, and watched it until the end.

Amanda Seyfried Scores Oscar Nomination for ‘Mank’; Opens Up About Her Bad Times on As the World Turns

Monday morning, Amanda Seyfried (Ex-Lucy, ATWT) landed her first ever Academy Award nomination in the Best Supporting Actress category for her performance in Mank in the role of Marion Davies. The film also led the way for the 93rd annual Oscars with the most nods for any film with 10.

The Oscar ceremonies will air live on ABC on Sunday, April 25th.  You can view all the nominations here.

In a recent interview with SiriusXM host, Jess Cagle on his Jess Cagle Show, he asked the talented actress about her start on As the World Turns, to which Amanda replied, “It was really exciting, and really heartbreaking. They were mean – whoever was in charge there.  I was 15 years old, like fire me in a nicer way.  I clearly wasn’t making the cut.  I was terrified. It wasn’t a warm environment – and not that anyone was being mean to me to my face, but these people were coming to work and doing their thing and leaving, and I was 15, and I was bad, and they sent my character off to South America.  They didn’t tell me that, they just didn’t invite me back.  I heard it through the actors playing my parents talking about where Lucy had gone – she had gone back to Montega. Then, Peyton List came on and resurrected my role for three years, and Peyton List is still my friend.”

 

Cagle then asked Amanda if her time in Oakdale soured her on continuing to be an actress, to which the now Oscar nom replied: “No, it didn’t.  It actually made me double-down at that point. This is what I want to do.  This is where I need to be.  I want that back, let’s get me another job, and I kept on auditioning and I got another job on another soap opera.”

The other role Amanda is referring to is her time as Joni Stafford on All My Children, where she often shared scenes with Michael. B. Jordan, then Reggie.

You can watch the exchange between Cagle and Seyfried sent to us by soap fan G.T. Lem below.

Now, share your thoughts on Amanda’s Oscar nomination and her remarks on her time as a young actress on ATWT in the comment section.

FYI – Actress Amanda Seyfried discusses her time on “As The World Turns” saying it wasn’t a warm environment and the person in charge (who later fired her) was “mean”
