News that came first out of Soap Opera Digest late today has that Camyrn Grimes was on the set today at CBS and The Young and the Restless taping new scenes!

According to SOD, “Grimes first show will air on Monday, July 8.  Specifics are being kept under wraps but it is more than just a one-day visit. Grimes originated the role of Nick  and Sharon’s daughter in 1997 and played the part until the character’s shocking death in 2005, the effects of which are still felt in storyline today. The actress has made several guest appearances since then!”

So does the re-appearance of Grimes mean Nick (Joshua Morrow) is visited by Cassie’s ghost yet again, over his guilt that he lied to everyone about being the bio-dad to Summer?   Or, is something else at work here for Grimes?  A new role?   Let us know your thoughts!

I wouldn’t mind her coming on as a brand new character. Someone who looks just like Cassie. That would be such a mindscrew for the Newmans. I can’t wait either way. Her death is still such a huge part of this show 7 years later. That says how important she was to Y&R. Welcome back Camryn!

I have been very vocal on this since the role of Cassie was done in by her death. This is and always will be the biggest mistake Y and R ever made in their history and thats saying something when u look at some of their collasal blunders. The story could have been just ad big if they had let her live and deal with the consequences and continue to battle life as a teenager. I eelcome tjis fine young actress back in sny capacity to let her shine and make up for their stupidity. All os us love C.G.

She is dead let her stay dead you cannot bring back someone from the grave after 7 years..If they want a Cassie look alike fine but don’t let her be connected with the Newmans..Give it a rest Y and R.

Well, if she isn’t coming back as a ghost– then the ever popular twin who didn’t know they were a twin scenario would be the way to go. All they have to do is come up with flimsy reason why Sharon didn’t remember giving birth to twins– and viola– she has a new role on the show, without bringing back Cassie from the grave.

All the replies show how much she is missed seven years later, this should show TPTB at Y snd R what a mistake it was, even if they never admit it.

Cassie’s death was a pivotal moment (and the last great storyline this show ever had). Bringing her back as a twin would only cheapen the impact of her death.

richard
Guest

I definitely agree, that story was absolutely amazing y&r played every beat of her death, it was tough for me to watch bc she grew up in that role, but I’m suspecting this is gonna be the start of nick and sharon finding their way back together. And a twin would cheapen Cassie’s death.

I think they should definitely bring her back. can’t wait to see what storyline they have in mind for her. please don’t let it be something really stupid.

Let Cassie have twin…as much as I loathe doppelganger stories, anything to put CM back on canvas & doing double time with Sharon Case & Josh Morrow. It would be wonderful if Sharon being so young had twins and Primrose orchestra the black market baby and sold it at the hospital with a lackey working for her, neither Sharon & Doris knew Sharon ever had twins…great story for a part of Cassie to return as young adult to be important facet to the Newman family.

Don’t bring her back as a ghost, PLEASE bring her back for the real Cassie. Don’t listen to all these stupid people telling you not too. You did it with Taylor on B&B and it worked just fine, it could have been the same thing with Cassie all these years. Nick needs her now more than ever. People when actors are killed off its cause they want to leave, but thinks change and I have seen them bring them back from the weirdest death ever. So I’m all for Cassie coming back and CAN’T WAIT!!!!

I’d rather we find Cassie has a twin than have another ghost hang around. I love John Abbott but NOT as a perpetual ghost. If they do bring Cassie back to life, or as a twin, she must stick around to make the ret-con worth it. Bringing Phillip Chancellor III back to life was a big waste of time.

She can be someone else since Cassie would not age, being dead, and Camryn obviously will.

Three possible solutions…1-yes they could bring her back as Cassie’s twin, it would lame and predictable. 2-Cassie could have been taken by her bio dad who has a grudge against Sharon and has brainwashed her all these years to hate Sharon & Nick. She is a doppelerganger who looks like Cassie that both Sharon & Ncik will bound over and get back together.

I burned out on doppelganger stories but I would welcome one here and Cassie had a twin…use the history blame on Primrose. Sharon was young and her & Doris didn’t know thing about twins. Gosh CG grew up on YR and it would be exciting to see her back somehow or someway.

I liked Cassie and Grimes. However, I am thinking this could be a HUGE mistake. If Grimes is briefly returning for a few “ghost” scenes (ala John Abbott) with Nick and/or Sharon, that is fine. However, if Grimes is playing the “not dead” Cassie, a twin, or simply a Cassie look-a-like, I’m betting it will flop. The writers over the past few years have attempted this several times: Phillip II faked “his” death so he could live as a gay man in Australia; the hammy actor hired by Jack and Sharon who looked exactly like John Abbott. These situations were… Read more »

I wasn’t watching when Cassie died however everytime Sharon and Nick are together at her death it brings tears to my eyes. If she could be alive that would be great. I’m still furious for ABC GH killing off Jake Jason/Liz’s son.

How could she come back as Cassie’s twin if Cassie’s younger sister Summer (born two or three years after Cassie’s death) has now been made 18 years of age? If Summer is 18 now and Cassie was about 16 or 17 when she died that would make Cassie THIRTY years old by now and what would that make Sharon and Nick – 50?! That just shows that when SORAS backfires, it backfires disastrously and makes the whole show laughably poor quality.

Beacon
Guest

Sorry, I meant to say OVER thirty, not thirty.
Actually, if Cassie was 15 when she died and Summer was born 1 and a half years later, and Summer is suddenly SORASed to 18, that would make Cassie 34 and a Hal f years of age, which would make Sharon 50 years old, since she was 16 when she had Cassie.

You do know the math, I’ll give you that… But you should also know by now that age is so irrelevant and is “just another number” when it comes to soap operas! Jussayin 😉 #BringCGback

Y&r needs to check their facts for those of us that have been watching
Show since the70’s .when nick got the paternity test thee first time, there is no way he would have hurt Sharon anymore . Phyllis would have been fine going back to jack. Please don’t think you y&r fans picked up on every detail. Making jack the dad is clearly for ratings at adding Sharon to be there for all his confidential info is ludicrous . Please give your longstanding fans some credit. We remember everything.

Ala, I see your point but I’m a longtime viewer since it debut and always said Summer was Jack’s bio dad. As for Cassie, Nick not hurting Sharon he has many times example Grace anyone. I think by that point their marriage was in trouble and when Phyllis announced she was pregnant I feel Nick found a way to relieve the pain of losing Cassie. I love CG she has grown up on YR and I say bring on the twin, this is putting Shick in the same atmosphere which I personally would love…JM & SC still have it. Think… Read more »

I have been a Y&R fan since 1975! Yes, thirty plus years!! Cassie coming back would be the best. I named my second child after Cassandra ( Kassie) who used to be with Paul Williams. Then when they introduced Sharon & Nick’s daughter as Cassie I couldn’t believe it especially because my own daughter has the exact gorgeous red hair! My heart goes out to Jeanne’s (Catherine’s) family and cast members! She will be dearly missed by this long time fan!! Love this show after all these years!! It my daily me time to watch in the evening:) can’t wait… Read more »

The ghost route is currently being used by John, which I am fine with if they can’t find a realistic way to bring him back.

So, yes the twin route is the best. Keep in mind Josh has only been writing since Oct, and we’ve had no real “out there” stories by him.

I am okay with him NOT playing it safe on this one. Let him write something to get her back on screen.

All My Children and Guiding Light Vet, Gil Rogers Passes Away

Gil Rogers, who played one of the all-time most dastardly villains in soaps on All My Children and was the on-screen father to the one and only Reva Shayne (Kim Zimmer) on Guiding Light, has died at age 87.

News came via his daughter, Amanda Rogers on her Facebook page, relating that Gil passed away on March 2nd.

The actor had played Tad (Michael E. Knight) and Jenny’s (Kim Delaney) father, Ray Gardner on All My Children from 1977-1978 making multiple appearance though 2001, then later as Hawk Shayne on Guiding Light from 1985-1992 making multiple appearance through 2009.

Gil also appeared on Another World, Search for Tomorrow and The Doctors.

In her post, Amanda wrote: “Gil Rogers died this morning. As you all know, my dad was awesome. He was my best friend, confidant, mentor and just an awesome dad. He came to pick me and  Charlotte Whitaker Zdanowski up at clubs at 2AM in our teens to keep us safe, and drank bourbon with me every day since moving out here 2 years ago. He was welcoming and kind, funny and gregarious, a shameless flirt and a fierce protector. He loved his dinners with grandkids and endured animated movies and discussions about pokemon. And I miss him so terribly already. He died in his sleep, without pain or fear. I am so grateful to have had such a great father and to have spent these past 2 years with him every day.”

Check out this vintage scene below from All My Children where Ray played by Rogers blows up the Martin house.

Now share your remembrances of Gil’s performances and along with condolences for his family in the comment section.

Chris Harrison In First Interview Since ‘Bachelor’ Controversy Says He Wants To Be Back as Host; But GMA’s Michael Strahan Says Apology was a “Surface Response”

Thursday’s Good Morning America featured the highly-publicized first interview with ‘Bachelor’ franchise host and executive producer, Chris Harrison, since he stepped away from the show following his controversial remarks on current Bachelor contestant Rachel Kirkconnell, amid the airing of a season that has seen the first-ever Black male lead of the reality series, Matt James.

Speaking with GMA co-host, Michael Strahan, Harrison spoke of remarks he made during his interview with ex-Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay on Extra that sparked the firestorm.

Harrison admitted the words he spoke to Lindsey were “in a manner that perpetuates racism,” adding “I am an imperfect man I made a mistake and I own that. I believe that mistake doesn’t reflect who I am or what I stand for.”

 

The incident began when photos surfaced on social media of Kirkconnell at an Old South-themed party that she attended back in 2018, along with allegations she “liked” many Instagram posts that were racist in nature, and what many viewed as Harrison coming to her defense in this time of what he then called “cancel culture”.

On GMA, Chris expressed: “Antebellum parties are not OK,  Past, present, future, knowing what that represents is unacceptable.”

He also apologized to Lindsay, who had to shut down her Instagram account because of viral vitriol being sent her way over the incident with Harrison, adding this message to the public, “Anyone who is throwing hate towards Rachel Lindsay, please stop. It’s unacceptable.”

As to how he is trying to make amends, Harrison shared: “I made a mistake and I own that, Racism, oppression, these are big dynamic problems and they take serious work. I am committed to that work.”  The longtime Bachelor host then announced he is working with race educator Dr. Eric Dyson who has taught him about the idea of “counsel, not cancel”.

Chris says he plans to be back hosting the reality-dating series, expressing:  “I plan to be back. I want to be back.  This interview is not the finish line. There is much more work to be done.”

Following the exclusive, Michael Strahan described his conversation with Chris Harrison stating: “His apology is his apology, but it felt like it got nothing more than a surface response on any of this. Obviously, he is the man who wants to clearly stay on the show, but only time will tell if there is any meaning behind his words.”

So, what do you think of Chris Harrison’s responses during his first interview since the controversy? Should he return to hosting The Bachelor franchise? Comment below. But first check out his GMA exclusive.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
