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 »

Ingo Rademacher Speaks Out On His Dismissal From GH Sharing: “I Was Hoping to Play Jax For Another 10 or 25 Years and Unfortunately, That’s Not Going to Happen”

For the first time since he was fired for not adhering to General Hospital’s and Disney/ABC’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate, Ingo Rademacher (Ex-Jax), addressed his exit from the soap opera via an “official video” message on his Instagram account.

Ingo expressed: “I’m sorry that I didn’t put out this video earlier, but this is about thanking you guys, the fans of the show and also the GH crew and cast. I was on the show for 25 years. They were like my family a lot of the people there. I was hoping to play Jax for another 10 or 25 years and unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. I want to thank you guys for sticking with Jax for 25 years and I’m sorry that I’m not there anymore to play Jax, which is still something that I am trying to process  … it’s just kind of crazy.”

Rademacher also took aim at his former co-star, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) for announcing on Twitter that he was no longer on the show, before he had a chance to do so, which he says was a huge disappointment to him given that they worked together for 25 years.

He went on to say how he appreciated all the positive comments from the fans adding, “A lot of you come on there to say that you’re vaccinated but stand for medical freedom, I love hearing that, because I believe it should be a choice.”  Ingo continued to express his view, “I don’t agree with vaccine mandates or corporations ever being able to mandate a vaccine to keep your job.”

The actor closed with another nod to the viewers of GH adding, “Thank you so much for supporting me for 25 years. I will have more news later on, but for now, just wanted to thank all of you amazing fans. Thank you.”

You can watch Rademacher’s full statement via his IG post below.  Then, let us know what you thought of Ingo’s long-awaited exit message in the comment section.

I’ve been thrown in the middle of a current storyline and I think Felicia’s part in it gives it some color. Stay tuned!”

Earlier in the week on Tuesday via Twitter, Kristina expressed: “Tomorrow I head back to work on General Hospital! Lucky me. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of that family once again. Here we go. More to come. Felicia Scorpio rides again.”

‘Dr. Oz Show’ Taken Off the Air in NY and PA Due to Senate Run; Daphne Oz ‘The Good Dish’ to Fill Time Slot

In light of his announcement that he will be running as a republican senate candidate in the state of Pennsylvania, Dr Oz’s daytime talk and medical show, The Dr. Oz Show, is being taken off the air in key markets in New York and Pennsylvania, according to the Fox Station Group.

According to Deadline’s sources, Fox TV Stations proceeded with pulling the Sony Pictures TV-distributed syndicated series because of the prospect of being forced to give other political candidates running in Pennsylvania equal time, expressing that it “would be a nightmare for us, there was no way we were going to be able to do that.”

In its place, look for Dr. Oz’s daughter, Daphne Oz, to be the fill-in with her show.

Starting on January 18th, Daphne’s The Good Dish, will take over the time slot during the duration of her father’s political campaign.  This potentially could go all the way through November of 2022, if Oz remains in the race through election day.

Last fall, Fox TV Stations renewed The Dr. Oz Show for two more years which gave it life through 2023.

So, do you think more stations will go bye-bye and have The Dr. Oz show pulled? What do you think of daughter Daphne’s series as the fill-in? Comment below.
