Very popular female soap stars in front of the camera, who are also going behind the camera and directing episodes of the soap they work on, another daytime drama, or outside projects is always rewarding to see for fans of the genre.

Former B&B icon Susan Flannery (Ex-Stephanie) directed episodes of B&B during her 25 years with the series.  Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS) has directed episodes of Days of our Lives and General Hospital, while Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH) is directing primetime television projects, while also returning for story arcs to her soap home.

Today, five-time Daytime Emmy winning actress Heather Tom (Katie Logan Spencer) announced via Instagram that she was indeed directing her first full episode of B&B!  Heather related her excitement with a picture of the top of today’s script which names her as the director.  She added: “I’m directing my first full show for The Bold and the Beautiful CBS today- wish me luck!”

B&B cast member and a multiple Daytime Emmy winner himself, Scott Clifton (Liam) took to Twitter adding: ” So psyched I’m in this episode. Congrats, @BBheathertom!”

So, excited to see Heather’s episode come January?

What do you think about these great soap actresses also directing behind the camera?

Good for her. B&B hasn’t written for her in at least a year, so it’s good that she’s channeling her creative energy in another direction.

Disagree. Tell me, are you just insulting female actors who want to direct as frivolous, or actors in general? Did you think Ron Howard, Kevin Costner, Mel Gibson, Clint Eastwood, George Clooney and Ben Affleck were all frivolous & being “silly” when they were nominated/won Academy Awards for their directing efforts? All directors start at the beginning, and they should be commended for going out of their comfort zone to try something else. Paramount had an actual directors program in their STAR TREK series that many actors participated in. That’s how Jonathan Frakes made the transition from actor to director.… Read more »

General Hospital

Nancy Lee Grahn Debuted 25 Years Ago Today as General Hospital’s Alexis Davis

Back on September 26th, 1996, (25 years ago today!) the new character of Alexis Davis made her debut on ABC’s General Hospital, and brought to the iconic soap opera, the talents of Nancy Lee Grahn.

Grahn, had already made a name for herself with her captivating portrayal of lawyer Julia Wainwright Capwell on Santa Barbara for which she won a Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy in 1989, in a tie with AMC’s Debbi Morgan.

Back in April, General Hospital, marked this milestone with a special episode for Grahn, that could be remembered come next year’s Emmys.

Alexis, or shall we call her “Natasha”, was introduced on GH as the daughter of Mikkos Cassadine and his mistress, whose throat was slit by Helena Cassadine, which has played into Alexis’ story for many years to come.  At the time of her entrance to the show, Wendy Riche was GH’s executive producer.

Through the years, viewers have witnessed Grahn’s portrayal of: a tough legal eagle, an honest depiction of a woman battling the bottle, failed romances, while all the time being a loving and faithful mother to her three daughters, Sam, Molly, and Kristina.

Nancy won her second Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy, this time for her role as Alexis in 2012, and has been a multi-nominee in the Lead Actress category for her performances on the ABC daytime drama series.

Kate Grahn, Nancy’s daughter took to social media within the last few hours since we posted this story to share a video on how thankful she and her mom are to GH fans and Nancy’s time on the show which afforded her the ability to have and raise Kate.  Check that out below.

Here’s to Nancy for giving us 25 years of her on-screen work as Alexis!

Congratulate Nancy and tell us your favorite Alexis Davis moments via the comment section.
