All My Children’s Debbi Morgan (Angie Hubbard) had made soap headlines over the last several weeks with the news that as soon as she ends her network television run as fan favorite, Dr Angie Hubbard, she is departing to Genoa City and joining the cast of The Young and the Restless.

Now shrouded in secrecy as to what exactly Emmy-winner Morgan’s new role will be, she took to her official website to clear up any rumors that she is heading to the number one soap as a the new Drucilla Winters, which till now has always been played to the hilt by Victoria Rowell.  Below is Morgan’s statement on the matter:

Debbi Morgan: “I’m very excited about joining Y&R, and already have relationships with the actors over there.   And after playing Dr. Angie Hubbard on and off for over twenty-five year, I am ready  to step into a new pair of shoes. As we get closer to my joining the show, which won’t be until September, I will fill you in on who and what my new character is. But for those who have speculated about the possibility of my taking over the role of the ex- ‘Drucilla Winters’, played by the wonderfully talented Victoria Rowell, I can tell you absolutely not!…No way…No how! Ms. Rowell has put her stamp on the role of Drucilla, and I know her fans would be outraged to see me, or any other actress, come in and try to take her place. I wouldn’t even attempt to go there. As far as I’m concerned, Victoria Rowell is simply irreplaceable as ‘Drucilla.”

But I am terribly excited about the role I will be playing and I can only hope that my devoted fans who have followed my career as “Angie” all these years, as well as many other roles I have played outside of daytime will take this new journey with along with me!”

Thank God, the powers-that-be are giving Morgan a new role and no having her be a recast! So now that we know Morgan is not Dru, could Rowell be on her way back, too?

Congratulations are in order this Sunday to Lauralee Bell who is celebrating her 35th anniversary with The Young and the Restless.  Hard to believe, it’s been 35 years since the perils of a young Cricket became front and center and those young love stories with Danny (Michael Damian), Phillip (Thom Bierdz) and eventually, Paul ( Doug Davidson).

As Cricket matured, so to was the decision to now call the character by her birth name, Christine.  After all, she became quite the legal eagle! For over three and a half decades with time-off in between, Lauralee has shared memorable storylines with the amazing Tricia Cast, and the late Jeanne Cooper as Nina and Katherine, and let’s not forget Michael Baldwin, played by Christian LeBlanc, to name just a few/

In a few tweets on Sunday, Lauralee acknowledged the day stating: “We all couldn’t do what we love to do without the viewers so thanks to them!”  She followed that up with a tweet filled with photos of herself and her co-stars throughout the years ,and some self-effacing humor stating: “Wasn’t going to post for YR anniversary, because I’m not one to put attention on me but no denying these people have made my life better. Thanks to crew & fans and my hope for Cricket is to smile the way she used to & chill whenever possible”

As viewers know, Lauralee is the daughter of Y&R creators, the late, great Bill Bell and his wife, Lee Phillip Bell.  We are sure Bill is smiling today for Lauralee and proud of this accomplishment.

Share your congrats for Lauralee on this milestone via the comment section below.  Then let us know your most memorable or favorite Cricket/Christine moment on the CBS Daytime drama series.

GH’s Vinessa Antoine Lands Primetime Series Will Make Canadian TV History!

Fantastic news for General Hospital favorite, Vinessa Antoine (Jordan)! The talented actress had landed the leading role in the primetime Canadian series, Diggstown!

The legal drama is scheduled to air this fall.  In Diggstown, Antoine will play Marcie Diggs, a top corporate lawyer who decides to dedicate herself to a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

This casting news will make Vinessa a part of Canadian TV history as the first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.

Antoine spoke to the Toronto Star about her starring role, “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system. And when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of color, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.”

However as suspected, and according to the Toronto Star: “General Hospital fans will not be happy to learn that Antoine, who has been with the show since 2014, will no longer be a series regular when she starts shooting Diggstown in August.”

So, excited to hear Vinessa has been cast in a leading primetime series?  Comment below!

In a statement, Gareth Neame expressed: “When the television series drew to a close it was our dream to bring the millions of global fans a movie and now, after getting many stars aligned, we are shortly to go into production.  Julian’s script charms, thrills and entertains and in Brian Percival’s hands we aim to deliver everything that one would hope for as Downton comes to the big screen.”

Focus Features chairman, Peter Kujawski, shared: “Since the series ended, fans of Downton have long been waiting for the Crawley family’s next chapter. We’re thrilled to join this incredible group of filmmakers, actors and craftspeople, led by Julian Fellowes and Gareth Neame, in bringing back the world of Downton to the big screen.”

Downton Abbey ran for six seasons on PBS  and received 15 Primetime Emmy awards and 69 nominations.
