Rumor is he is leaving Days

it is not a rumor it has been confirmed

okey dokey

This might be premature but I always knew Billy would move to bigger things. He is so good on DAYS that I had thought when he first started that he would be gone soon. Glad he’s been with us all this time. I am happy for him no matter which way he wants to take his career.

I’ll miss Billy on Days; however, I am happy that he is doing well.

after Michael Muhney.. before… after… currently… Billy Flynn IS

ALL that I want to dream about

oy I’ve reserved my passion

looked after him … prepare your nest young man… you have all the instinct to walk this path.

I’ve read the “rumour mill ” on line as well… that he may well be on his way OUT

how disturbing is that NOW ? my heart be still

just as I’ve read on line… ie: Eileen Davidson… that @DAYS asked “sony” for the opportunity to work with her again… and @Sony said no…. this I read.. after she announced her departure from Y&R. which is nothing more than posting… other than.. will we ever see her back on daytime ? so it goes

Billy Flynn and Eileen Davidson… just mega watt power house’

I love you

Not sure about the premise; would have to read more about it if/when it comes out. LOVE Blly, though, and am disappointed he left Days. One of my favorite actors on there.

With his looks/talent not surprising he already has other projects in the works.

Plain and simple, Billy Flynn is a star!

Not yet! Work on that stage presence first–and get some more experience under your belt. The movie could be a useful, learning tool for you, but stay on Days and hone your talent also.

He’s gone from Days, Nancy. He’s “already left the building” even though his scenes are still airing.

“Star” is in the eyes of the beholder. I agree with Jamesj. Billy has the looks and the talent and he “shines bright.”

Hey Rebecca,
I haven’t been watching Days (or GH) so I didn’t know he had “already left the building.”
“Star” has to be proved by the audiences’ reaction and by the finesse demonstrated. My perception dictates caution.
I wish him much guarded good luck.

Hi again, Nancy; I could be wrong but I don’t think James meant that Billy was “literally” a star as in a well-know celebrated movie star, or TV star for that matter. I think it was just his expression as if to say, he’s a “star” in his (james’ eyes). Just his own proclamation!

Got it! 🙂

In the words of Sly Stone: “Everybody Is A Star…” 🙂

“You don’t have to be a star, Baby, to be in my show!”

I just hope that “my show” doesn’t get cancelled… 🙂

Take care, Friend!

And, again, Rebecca, you get me! Obviously, Mr. Flynn is a soap star, which is inherently laudable. But I characterize him as “star material,” as having “star qualities.” And that star can shine in more than one medium.

Nancy, thank you for your reply. I know we agree that it is sad to see Mr. Flynn leave DOOL. Maybe we can enjoy his talents in other projects soon. Best to you, Friend!

And to you!

Go, boys!

The Young and the Restless and General Hospital Actress and Writer, Meg Bennett, Passes Away at 75

Meg Bennett, who had played Julia Newman and later became a writer for the top-rated daytime drama, The Young and the Restless has died at the age of 75.  The news comes from her family who shared that she lost her battle to cancer back on April 11th.

Daytime fans remember fondly, Meg’s portrayal of Victor’s (Eric Braeden)first wife. Bennett joined the show in 1980, after her first soap stint for two years in the role of Liza Walton on Search for Tomorrow.

Impressed by her story notes, the late Bill Bell, then head writer of Y&R, had Meg doing double duty acting and writing on the show from 1983-1987. When he decided to write off the character of Julia, he also wanted Meg to stick around as a writer.  Not only did this begin a whole other daytime career for Bennett, but she was not done playing Julia either. Throughout the decades, Julia would still come back to Genoa City for a visit. Most recently, Y&R fans saw Julia in 2018, and again in 2020.

Bennett also appeared on Santa Barbara and was a writer on that show as well from 1991-1993. She played the role of Megan Richardson. It was next that Meg had her longest writing stint coming to ABC’s General Hospital. Meg wrote for GH from 1993-2011.

In 1995, Bennett won her first Daytime Emmy for writing and her personal life changed after falling in love with nine-time Daytime Emmy winner, former GH head writer, Bob Guza Jr. In addition, GH also utilized Bennett for her acting skill when she was cast as the villainess Allegra Montenegro.  Meg and Bog Guza were officially married in 2004 and purchased a home once owned by Boris Karloff and Gregory Peck.

Additionally, Meg wrote for The Bold and the Beautiful 1987-1989 and later served as a executive story consultant to Brad Bell from 2002-2004.  She also wrote for Sunset Beach, Generations and GH: Night Shift throughout her writing career. She went on to win five WGA Awards for GH and Santa Barbara.

Meg is survived by her husband of 19 years, Robert Guza Jr., two stepdaughters, four grandchildren, a brother and a sister.
