Winsor Harmon (Thorne) who had not gotten to play a major story of his own for several years, has been taken off contract from The Bold and the Beautiful. According to a show spokesperson and CBS Soaps In Depth:  “Winsor Harmon is now on recurring status. It was a mutually agreed upon transition which will allow Winsor to pursue other projects while allowing B&B to have him remain as Thorne Forrester.”

The blood bath has officially begun. Harmon’s the first sacrificial lamb to Frantz’s altar. Frantz hasn’t encountered a storyline she couldn’t chew and shriek her way through, and once B&B becomes the Amber show, more actors will be axed, just like B&B axed Barbara Crampton, Kimberlin Brown, Tracey Bregman, Paul Satterfield, Paul Williams, Marissa Tate, Andrea Evans and the actors that potrayed Grant, Carmen and Mary/Erica to make more storylines for Amber or to redeem Amber. I wouldn’t be surprised if Brad bell axes Aaron Spears, Rick Hearst, Sarah Brown, Texas Battle, Heather Tom, Don Diamont and eventually Alley Mills for more storylines to revolve around Amber.

This isnt AF’s fault. Thorne hasnt had a real story in years. Its better this way. He can find other jobs other than just being a prop.

It may or may not be Frantz’s “fault”. However, history has shown that Brad Bell has fired many actors for the expansion of Amber’s role on B&B. He stated in many interviews in the past during Frant’z first, awful run as storyline hogging Amber that actors were fired/characters were written out to focus on Amber and the younger set (w/c revolved around Amber). Crampton, Buchanan, Kimberlin Brown, Bregman, Williams, Satterfield were all axed to focus on Amber. Despite fan clamoring, Marissa tate’s Becky was killed off so that Amber would get custody of Lil’ Eric (w/c meant more storylines for Frantz). Andrea Evans was written off the show by making Tawney the scapegoat in the baby switch, w/c redeemed Amber and made Frantz stick around instead of being written off the show. Same w/ the actress that portrayed Carmen (I don’t remember her name, but she was the Latina actress that got preggers w/ Sean Kanan’s baby). Anyways, she was fired and her character was killed off while battling w/ Amber on a roof so Amber would have more drama again regarding Lil’ Eric. When Kimberlin Brown’s Sheila returned, her storyline revolved around Amber and making Mary/Erica become Rick’s wife. Those actresses were fired when their characters were written out because Amber had to be the heroine in yet a new arc. So the likelihood of actors from B&B being fired for more storylines for Frantz has a precedent. Thorne is a legacy character that has been on the canvas since day 1. They could have created many storylines for Thorne, even w/ a new actor in the role. How many single father storylines are written well on daytime? Alexandra (they should have named her Thora IMO) is sure to be a troubled teen since her mother Darla was killed and run over by her ex-aunt/almost step-mother Taylor, w/c was covered up by her and her own grandmother Stephanie. Those would be interesting storylines over Amber’s Saga yet again. But it’s not surprising that he is put on recurring while the likes of Frantz gets a contract since Brad bell loves writing for Amber/Frantz.

Winsor Harmon is the only reason I began watching this show. I stayed with it throught all of Brad Bell’s god awful story lines these past few years because Winsor is my favorite actor. I watched for a chance to possibly see him on screen. Now that he’s leaving, so am I. I’m finished with this show. I know that he’s filming two movies this year and I am very happy for him and look forward to seeing him in them. I read where he’s in pre-production now for one of them. Good luck Winsor, I wish you happiness and success.

Natasha Henstridge To Play Opposite GH’s Departing Vinessa Antoine in DIGGSTOWN

More casting news from the upcoming Canadian legal drama series, Diggstown which will star General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) in the central role of Marcie Diggs.

As fans know, Antoine will be exiting GH in the role of Jordan as she begins filming the CBC series.

However, Antoine is getting a co-star on her new show, in none other than Natasha Henstridge.  The actress has previously appeared in CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Secret Circle.

 

According to Deadline, in Diggstown, Natasha will play Colleen MacDonald, a single, no-nonsense, openly gay director of legal aid now headquartered in Halifax after being blacklisted by the legal community in Toronto. She hopes to one day work her way back home.

As for the premise of the new series, Diggstown is set in the gritty arena of legal aid.  It centers on Marcie Diggs (Antoine), a star lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.  The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice as they work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias.”

Antoine is the first black actress to be cast as a dramatic series lead on iconic Canadian Broadcasting Company, CBC.

So, what do you think of the premise of Diggstown?  Sounds intriguing to us! Comment below.
