I miss Cynthia Watros as Kelly on GH..
Dixie (she always acts Dixie/stereotyped) is not cutting it for me, she just could not replace Cynthia Watros..
I will tune in just see Cynthia Watros, it looks good .. I might even like it!!

You are nuts, Cady is way better in the role of Kelly. Cynthia was miscast, but Cynthia was great on Guiding Light as Nurse Annie.

There’s no way in hell Cynthia was miscast. She was magnificent as Kelly. Tortured, vulnerable, the works. Get a clue.

I’ve always loved Cady, but I think that Cynthia Watros brought a vulnerability to Kelly that just seems to be missing from Cady’s performance here. I blame the wonderful Jon Lindstrom for this – Cady’s just too damn happy to play the tortured Kelly!

I hope this does really well for Cynthia. She’s s tremendous actress and deserves prime time success!

I wish she was still Kelly on Y&R. Cady MacLaine is miscast in the role and isn’t bringing it. They should have created a new character for her instead I think.

Kudos to Cynthia on her new adventure <3

I love Cynthia Watros, best of luck to her on her new show. I loved crazy Annie Dutton on Guiding Light, Cynthia is a wonderful actress. Cady Mcclain what can you say, I love her as Kelly Andrews. Sorry to say this Lainey, but Cynthia was not right, for the role as Kelly. Cady is rocking it, She also is a terrific actress. Actually both of them are wonderful ladies, they sure can act. I prefer Cady, in the role of Kelly.

Maybe different but sounds like a reworking of Switched At Birth where a young girl learns she wasnt raised by her real mother and had to integrate into the family she never knew she had…only difference is that S.A.B. involved two girls and both had to make the adjustment…so, been there, done that…ill pass!!!

I miss her as kelly Cady McClain isn’t cutting it and I love Cady! She was so good as Rosanna on ATWT.

I liked Cynthia as Kelly, too.
Not hating Cady as Kelly, but just
not connecting with her, either.
Since Cynthia left, the character
of Kelly just seems kind of pointless

Cady McClain is attractive, talented, sweet, and so.

In my opinion, she was a better replacement of Cynthia Watros than someone else was.

I like her as the new Kelly on Y&R. Jack Abbott finally has a woman who is hot and wants to be with him.

I still think by all intents & purposes JFP wanted to cast her as the Nu-Phyllis but for whatever reason they thought Stafford was coming back. I did prefer her take on the Kelly character but I blame the writers more then the actress they just did a total 180 on the character. As they are doing with Billy and brother Jack neither has any edge anymore they are just bland.

Y&R should change to black lipstick.

I liked her as Annie Dutton on GL. I even liked her as Kelly Andrews on Y&R.

But, I think that she fits perfectly well for the role of Elizabeth Stevens on “Finding Carter”.

How Great is Cynthia Watros on her new show. She is amazing. Watching Finding Carter just for her.

GL Alum Nia Long Set to Play Michael Jackson’s Mother, Katherine Jackson, in Upcoming Biopic

Since her early days on Guiding Light, actress Nia Long (ex-Kat Speakes from 1991-1994), has made quite a name for herself with a list of credits that are very impressive. Now, Long can yet another when she has signed on to portray Katherine Jackson, the matriarch of the Jackson clan and mother to superstar Michael Jackson.

Michael, the title of the upcoming biopic from Lionsgate and Universal Pictures is said to be working towards an April 18, 2025 release date. Director Antoine Fuqua is set behind the camera.

In a statement on the casting of Long, Michael producer Graham King expressed: “Beyond Nia’s incredible talent, I was deeply moved by her connection to the material and her commitment to honoring Katherine and the love she had for her son. Nia has delivered iconic performances throughout her career. I’ve been a fan for a long time because her characters stay with you. I’m excited to now work alongside her as she pours all of that into Katherine Jackson: a woman who was the glue, the rock, and the heart of the Jackson family during its best and its most turbulent times.”

Long echoed the sentiments of King, sharing: “Katherine Jackson is an incredible pillar of strength and grace for the entire Jackson family. As a mother, she was selfless and endured forces beyond her control yet still managed to help build a legacy beyond measure. I am honored to bring her voice to the screen and share Michael Jackson’s story with audiences everywhere.”

Nia will be in great acting company for the film that includes Best Actor Oscar nominee Coleman Domingo who will play Katherine’s husband and Michael’s father, Joe Jackson.
