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!

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.

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!

All My Children Alum Cornelius Smith Jr. Joins the Cast of Apple TV+ Limited Series, ‘Five Days At Memorial’

Daytime fans remember him fondly as the son of Jesse (Darnell Williams) and Angie Hubbard (Debbi Morgan), Frankie, on All My Children.  And now, actor Cornelius Smith Jr., is set to join a major limited series based on the acclaimed nonfiction book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Sheri Fink, about the the first five days following Hurricane Katrina made landfall entitled Five Days at Memorial.

Written by John Ridley and Carlton Cruse, Smith will play a doctor, (something he is very familiar with playing since Frankie Hubbard was a doctor in Pine Valley!) named Dr. Bryant King, an internist and one of the few doctors of color at the hospital, who finds himself very much in the middle of the crisis.  He will headline the show alongside Vera Farmiga and Adepero Oduye.
