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.

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… Read more »

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!

“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!

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.
