She comes to Genoa City claiming to be Dullans wife who has no memory of her…Joe hired her to keep Dullan away from Avery but…never mind thats the Jake/Hayden/Ric/Liz story over at GH…lol

Notice, Y&R and GH both have identity stories that could come to the forefront in May. [Adam and Jason]

Although I think she’s a beautiful actress and I loved her on G. Light, I don’t get it. We just lost Courtney & Austin. We haven’t seen Mark Harding since New Year’s, so if we lost the people we love due to cut-back’s why are we bringing someone else aboard?

suOO, you constantly say you like new characters and that you grow tired of the veteran characters. You seem to thrive on change.
Now please know I don’t mean this as an insult or dig at all, but could you have ADHD?

She was woefully miscast as Marah on GL (and got stuck with some awful storylines) but I did always think she could act. I sort of wondered what had happened to her; it’s been more than a decade and I don’t recall seeing any news of her—guest shots on nighttime, parts in movies, anything. There was a rumor a few years ago that she was going to replace Vail Bloom as why-can’t-I-think-of-Paul’s-daughter’s-name-right-now, but nothing came of it.

Didn’t watch GL at all, but it seems like people really like her. Maybe her stint will turn into longer than just 2 days if she makes a good impression. My guess is that she’ll be working with Victor or maybe even Jack for Jabot’s new fragrance. She could even have something to do with Cane taking over Chancellor.

I’m kinda bummed out. I always wanted and pictured her on Gh as Sarah Webber. I mean Elizabeth don’t have no family she’s always in other people drama what better to actually have a purpose.

I have a funny feeling that she”ll portray a recast Chloe, find out that “Gabriel” is really Adam with a new face and after exposing him to the world, try to kill him herself!

It said she’ll play a new character, not a recast!

This is out of context…..but, am I wrong in assuming that Hillary is putting on an act? I mean, she really cares what happens to Neil and is still in love with Devon? Regardless, I hope she and Devon are on their way out.
Also, for once, I agree with Victor….ugh! He is right about not telling Leslie anything….as far as Victor is concerned, she is the enemy.

Cicely Tyson Recalls Her Time On ‘Guiding Light’ & Her Mother’s Obsession With Soaps In Final Interview on ‘Live with Kelly & Ryan’

The world is mourning the loss of legendary actress Cicely Tyson who died on Thursday at the age of 96.   On Wednesday, Tyson had taped what would be the final interview of her life with Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest for the morning show, Live with Kelly and Ryan.

Today on Friday, the show aired Tyson’s interview which was filled with so many moments made all the more poignant by her passing yesterday.

As soap fans know, Cicely was the first black actress to appear on the soaps, and on Guiding Light, back in 1966 in the role of Martha Frazier.  The character was married to Dr. Jim Frazier played first by Billy Dee Williams and then James Earl Jones.  Tyson’s role was eventually taken over by Ruby Dee.

 

During her interview with Kelly and Ryan, the hosts asked the Oscar-nominated actress and icon, best known for her roles in Sounder, The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman, Roots, and A Trip to Bountiful about her time on Guiding Light.  Cicely revealed that her mother was a huge fan of Guiding Light and the daytime soaps, and was obsessed with the characters and what was going to happen next.  As it turns out, according to the interview, Tyson’s mother’s favorite role of her daughter was Martha on Guiding Light.

Watch the clip from the interview below.

Guiding Light Alum, Michelle Forbes, Lands Role In ABC Hit Drama, ‘Big Sky’

David E, Kelley’s new drama, Big Sky has been a captivating hit series for ABC in its freshmen offering.  Former One Life to Live star, Ryan Phillippe (Ex-Billy Douglas), who was one of the leads of the series, was seemingly killed-off early on and the show has had more shocking twists and turns in the crime thriller.

For those who don’t know, Big Sky, follows private detective Cassie Dewell (Kylie Bunbury) and ex-cop Jenny Hoyt (Katheryn Winnick) who join forces to search for two sisters who have been kidnapped by a truck driver on a remote highway in Montana. But when they discover that these are not the only girls who have disappeared in the area, they must race against the clock to stop the killer before another woman is taken. After a winter break, Big Sky returned with new episodes this week.

Now, another soap alum has been added to the cast in the back-half of the first season.  Enter Michelle Forbes (Ex-Sonia/Solita, Guiding Light).  Michelle will take on the role of a mother named Margaret.

According to Deadline on Forbes’ Margaret: “She seems to be the picture-perfect ranch wife who knows her place, likes to bake and loves all of her children equally, but scratch the surface and there’s real steel beneath.”

So excited to see Michelle on Big Sky? Did you love her as Sonia/Solita on Guiding Light? Comment below.
