Would love to see Mr. Bryggman back in daytime drama. My thought… in s short-term but meaty role as someone from Victor’s past, a cousin or business associate or competitor. Mr. Bryggman and Eric Braeden could really spar, I suppose.

Loved watching both of these actors on ATWT and AW. I don’t watch BLACKLIST nut may just to see them. I feel that way every time I hear a soap actor is going to be on a show; I’ll tune in just for them. Soap actors are the best!

Dorothy was great as Gwen on AW before AMC. She on Larry should be dynamite together!

I’ve always loved Dorothy Lyman as Naomi on Mama’s Family, even catch it on MeTV channel when I see it on.

I know Carol Burnett loved her on All My Children and got her from AMC to be on Mama’s Family. I’ve never seen Dorothy Lyman as Opal, I’ll have to see if her scenes are on youtube.

As someone who watched ATWT in the 1970s, I vividly recall two major storylines from that time involving John Dixon:

1) John and some woman were trying to kidnap a baby — don’t ask me who or why — and the characters devised their plan and had a few trial runs in a grocery store before they actually did the deed.

2) Kim was married to John, and she wanted to leave John, I believe, to be with Dan. But John didn’t want to let her go. He fell down a flight of stairs (a scene that was shown repeatedly in slo-mo) and was severely injured. Out of guilt and a sense of duty, Kim felt compelled to stay with John to help him recuperate. And I believe John intentionally prolonged his recovery to stay with Kim.

I remember these storylines being high drama and, even back then, Mr. Bryggman being a great actor!

I have loved both these actors over the years. Who could ever forget John Dixon. The brains of the doctor, but the evilness of the man. I was so glad that he ended up with Lucinda, what a pair!

Ripa went on to to tell her co-host: “A gentleman of, I mean, Ryan, you two would have loved each other. He would say the funniest things and we were all going through our brains about all of the funny, like the funny ‘Callahan-isms’ over the years.

His daughter and my daughter are good friends, they’re the same age and I just want everyone to know, Eva and Kaya, that we are thinking of you and we are just so sad and so devastated.
