‘House Of Cards’ Posts 4th Of July Message From New POTUS Claire Underwood Played By Robin Wright

Courtesy/Netflix

On a perfectly timed day to get people intrigued into the sixth and final season of the Netflix hit series, House of Cards, the streaming service tweeted a video message teasing its season expected to bow later this year.

In it, Robin Wright stars as the President of the United States, Claire Underwood, who simply states:  “Happy Independence Day…to me.”  That is followed by the hashtag cleverly stating #MyTurn.

Production of the Netflix drama began earlier this year, while Season 5 came to a conclusion with Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) stepping down as POTUS and Claire taking his place.

As the events unfolded off-screen since the season 5 finale: due to the sexual assault allegations against Spacey from several men, and one from actor Anthony Rapp, that promted the series to fire Spacey for good.  The future of the final season was up in the air, until it was decided to move forward with Robin Wright at its epicenter.

Wright will be joined by a great line-up of castmates including: Greg Kinnear, Diane Lane,Patricia Clarkson, Constance Zimmer, Derek Cecil, Campbell Scott and more.

Watch the presidential message below. Then let us know, are you excited to see the new season of House of Cards featuring soap alum, former Santa Barbara star, Robin Wright as POTUS?  Comment below.

Off and on I’d tune into House Of Cards, but I never cared for it. Anyways- great to see a woman president even if by fiction.

Sadly I think the show should have ended once it was revealed to the world what a disgusting and perverted and predatory man Kevin Spacey was. In general, all the talk will be about how better or worse the show is without Kevin or ROBIN/Clare VS Kevin/Frank.

If Clare wasn’t made a true irredeemable character with that murderast season, I could move past Kevin Spacey being on the show to Robin Wright’s Clare showing how “women do it different. Do it better”. Sadly, Clare is as selfish, as power hungry, indefensible, pyschopathic, and murderous as Frank ever was.

The series needs to end with Clare being led out in handcuffs otherwise it just goes to prove a true point:

Whether male or female, once real power is out in either their hands “IT WILL CORRUPT AND IT WILL DESTROY ALL THOSE AROUND IT AND HOLDING IT”

The best House of Cards is the British version from a few years ago with Ian Richardson. Really good as only the Brits do it. I really liked Robin Wright as Buttercup in “Princess Bride,” one of my favorite movies. She plays a “strong” woman in it as well. But not as evil, or conniving. Coincidentally several of other actors from the film will be coming to my annual sci-fi comic show that I go to every year. Like Vizzine “inconceivable.” And Wesley. Sounds like needed fun.

Marci Miller Final DAYS Episode Airs Today As She Shares Heartfelt Goodbye: “Thanks For The Sweet Ride, Abby”

In two years time, Marci Miller became a household name in the daytime arena as one of the brightest talents to grace the soap opera genre in a very long time.

Now today on Monday November 19th, viewers of Days of our Lives are watching her final episode as she wraps up her run as Abigail Deveraux on the NBC soap opera.

And what a run it was! Earning her a Daytime Emmy nomination for Lead Actress this year, and a possible nomination next year, Miller was heralded for her gut-wrenching performances in the DID storyline (Dissociative Identity Disorder) where she played Abby’s alters, Dr. Laura and Gabby.  Not to mention her complex love story with Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn).

On key episodes today, Miller’s Abby goes toe to toe with a vindictive Gabi (Camila Banus) who gloats how Abby ended up back in a sanitarium … thanks to her!

Miller made the decision to leave DAYS and pursue a career in feature film and primetime TV roles

In an Instagram post, Miller shared:”This is a picture of me 2 yrs ago, painting my nails (and a dear friend’s while I’m at it) for a screen test the next morning to play a woman named Abigail Deveraux Dimera on Days of Our Lives. Who would’ve thought?! This morning I sit in the same exact spot knowing that today, my last episode will air as this beloved character. I reflect, and am grateful. I am better for having been a part of it all. Knowing I’ve laid her in a pair of loving and capable hands does me good. Thanks for the sweet ride, Abby. My heart is full today. Xx #Days #Milly#Chabby”

So, send your well-wishes to Marci here as we give her a standing ovation for an incredible job well-done for her portrayal of Abby et al.  Will you miss Marci? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Soaps Lift Boycott Threat Of Daytime Emmys

In a key move to allow those performers in front of the camera and behind the scenes crew and creatives to be acknowledged for their accomplishments this calendar year, the four daytime dramas collectively have decided to lift their threatened boycott and participate in the upcoming 46th annual Daytime Emmy competition.

This comes after the four network soaps (Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful, and The Young and the Restless) banded together after being unsatisfied with snafu’s coming out of the 45th annual Daytime Emmy Awards earlier this year in April, and a list of grievances and concerns they asked to be addressed by the organization that administers the Emmy contest.

Then, following an internal investigation by NATAS by the law firm of Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth of Washington, DC, the results which were released on November 8th, and being in receipt of their findings, the soaps decided to move forward while still having concerns they want addressed.

In a statement from the group, a spokesperson related to Deadline, who broke the story late Friday: “As a group, we are not in agreement with all of the conclusions that NATAS reached.  However, in the spirit of working with NATAS and the TV Academy on improving the integrity of the Daytime Emmys, we have lifted our boycott. We look forward to meeting with NATAS to discuss their findings and our concerns in greater detail.”

On Saturday, someone close to the situation said to Michael Fairman TV: “Our participation doesn’t mean we accept their proposal moving forward, we still have major issues that we will be discussing with the Chair and President (of NATAS), but as a collective whole, we don’t want to penalize our actors for NATAS’ mis-management.”

The 46th Annual Daytime Emmy submissions began earlier this week on November 12th, with the Daytime Emmys slated to be handed out in early May of 2019.

So, are you glad that the network soaps have lifted their threatened boycott so that your favorite performers, whose performances you have loved over the last 11 months can be acknowledged for their talents and hard work? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
