The Bold and the Beautiful’s Scott Clifton (Liam) is up in the Younger Actor category for the fifth time at this Sunday night’s38h Annual Daytime Emmy Awards!  Now as he is finally over 25, this is the final year he will compete in this category.  And with a stellar reel, could Clifton finally end his curse and win the gold?  Well, TV Guide Canada’s, Nelson Branco chatted with Clifton about Emmy hell, if he would ever reprise his first soap role of Dillon Quartermaine on GH, and having to say goodbye to his former stomping grounds at One Life to Live, now that it has been canceled.  Here are a few interesting moments from the interview!

Clifton on his choice of Emmy reel in this year’s race: “I liked the scenes I ended up competing with because last year, when I was nominated as Schuyler on One Life, I felt that my episode was too actor-y, shticky, and over the top – and I ended up paying for that.  My reel last year was very sarcastic, with one real moment where I got to be emotional. This year, I tried to go in the opposite direction. I wanted something more intimate, small, subtle and internalized. We’ll see what happens.”

Clifton if now that GH is being re-set and an offer would come to reprise the role of Dillon Quartermaine, would he go: “I don’t think I would go back,” he asserts. “Certainly, (not) as long as I am on B&B. If I were fired, and needed work, yes, I would come back to GH if they wanted me. But I don’t feel any desire to return to GH because I feel proud of what I was able to do over there at that point in my career. At this point, it would be hard and confusing for me to reprise Dillon at this stage. I’m having way too much fun here on B&B as Liam. Having said that, I think GH is a great show to work on but I prefer B&B, which may be selfish.”

Clifton on the cancellation of One Life to Live where he played Schuyler Joplin: All My Children was one thing, but it was really shocking that One Life was cancelled. It was like ‘holy shit’! It’s tragic, because there are so many people on that show that are like family to me. And I’m not just talking about the cast, but the crew as well. But I’m trying to put a positive spin on the situation because I’m so psyched for actors like John Paul Lavoisier and Bree Williamson to go into prime-time TV and movies. I know they’ll get work and make it big. But watching a soap opera get cancelled is so much more impactful than any other medium because of the longevity.”

So, I take he hasn’t heard the very credible rumors that JPL is a) headed to GH and b) going to be taking over the role of DQ.

After JPL’s controversial (yet politically-correct) responses to OLTL’s cancellation, and both he and Farrah Fath announcing that they were headed to LA, there was a lot of talk that he might have begun negotiations with Frons (his golf buddy) to join GH. Then there was the announcement that he was leaving months before the cancellation, and Garin Wolf declaring, “Sometimes they come back” and the revival of the Quartermaines, followed by Ravenbeauty claiming that 2-3 OLTL cast members will be joining GH. Given SC and JPL’s similar acting style and sense of humor, and SC’s apparent aversion to returning, it… Read more »

Anne Heche ‘Not Expected to Survive’; Suffered Severe Brain Injury From Fiery Crash

In just heartbreaking news, Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World), is not expected to survive after days in the hospital following being severely burned in a fiery car crash when her vehicle struck a home in Mar Vista, California last Friday.

According to family and friends of the motion picture and television star in a statement, “Unfortunately, due to her accident, Anne Heche suffered a severe anoxic brain injury and remains in a coma, in critical condition. She is not expected to survive. It has long been her choice to donate her organs and she is being kept on life support to determine if any are viable.”  Deadline notes, the actress will be taken off life-support.

The statement went on to say, “We want to thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers for Anne’s recovery and thank the dedicated staff and wonderful nurses that cared for Anne at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills hospital.  More than her extraordinary talent, she saw spreading kindness and joy as her life’s work — especially moving the needle for acceptance of who you love. She will be remembered for her courageous honesty and dearly missed for her light.”

There are plans for Heche to get an Honor Walk, which is a hero’s goodbye donor patients receive by hospital staff as they are wheeled into the operating room in their final journey.

Heche will be featured on Lifetime’s Girl in Room 13, set to premiere this fall in September. Lifetime’s Executive VP  and head of programming, Amy Winter, revealed earlier this week at the TCA press tour, “As many of you know, Anne remains in critical condition and all of us here at Lifetime are deeply concerned for her and everyone affected. This project is important to Anne, along with each and every one of us. We all sought to make a film that would bring attention to this appalling issue of human sex trafficking.”

In addition, TMZ had reported that following toxicology reports, Cocaine was found in Heche’s system following the crash. They also found fentanyl. However,  sources say fentanyl can often be used as a pain medication in hospitals, so there is no confirmation that it was in Anne’s system at the time of the crash.

Anne was an amazing actress with such a tortured life.  We send thoughts and prayers to all her loved ones during this difficult time.  Share your thoughts on the latest update on Anne in the comment section below.
