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 seems like a natch that JPL will be taking over the role of Dillon.

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

OLTL Alum Renee Elise Goldsberry On Performing Her Showstopper “Satisfied” In ‘Hamilton’ Premiering On Disney+ Today

We loved her as Evangeline Williamson on One Life to Live, and the Broadway world loved her in her Tony Award-winning role as Angelica Schuyler in the musical Hamilton, which today bows on the filmed version on Disney+.  Of course, we are talking about the fabulous Renee Elise Goldsberry who has talent abounds.

In Hamilton, Goldsberry performs a showstopper “Satisfied” as Angelica makes the ultimate sacrifice giving up the man she loves Hamilton played by Lin-Manuel Miranda) to her sister for her sister, Eliza’s (Phillipa Soo) happiness.

Now taking the version of this memorable moment in the theatre and bringing it to life on film also makes for an exciting performance and piece of creative work.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times out today, Renee talks about executing this number in the show just right: “There are things that are technically challenging about that number: on top of the words, there’s the movement and the fact that we’re doing the previous number in reverse the whole time. It was a lot of things to juggle, but that was never hard, that was all intellectual. Even the rap was relatively easy. The most challenging part to sing is that final toast.This is an extremely well-written song. Every word is crafted to analytically take this woman on an emotional, life-altering decision for these three lives. That decision was such a monumentally painful and beautiful thing to do that by the time I’d get to that moment in which she makes that decision, I was so devastated that it was hard to sing that toast. She’s conflicted because, clearly, she wants to stay around this guy, she recognizes his brilliance, but she gets that Eliza is the one. So I imagine this woman having to give this toast to this community, in spite of the pain she felt.I was always worried that somehow or another, I wouldn’t be able to live up to the brilliance of the end of that song because emotionally, I was just trying to manage it. It took me maybe until Broadway to feel OK about it.”

When asked how she felt about seeing “Satisfied” in the movie version of Hamilton available everywhere Friday on Disney+, Goldsberry added: :Seeing it from the audience’s point of view for the first time, I realized there was a whole ‘nother level of storytelling that was going on, separate from me. I mean, Howell Binkley’s lighting design!  And Andy Blankenbuehler’s brilliant choreography, which I could always only see in my peripheral vision. It’s a huge number with the entire company onstage just killing it and basically turning back time with their bodies, and I’m standing in the middle, talking out like a deer in the headlights to the audience about a burst of things that I have to grapple with immediately. I’m very grateful that he made my job much easier.”

Watch a clip of Renee’s performance in the film version of Hamilton below.

Now, let us know if you are planning to watch the highly-anticipated Hamilton over the fourth of July weekend via the comment section and if you are excited to see Renee in her award-winning winning in it?

The fact that The Bold and the Beautiful is the first daytime drama to get one new episode completed is a step forward amidst the spike in COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County and the state of California.
