Missing Daytime Emmy winner Jeff Branson from his roles as Ronan Malloy on The Young and the Restless or Shayne Lewis on Guiding Light?

Well, tomorrow night, Branson is co-starring in a new Lifetime movie entitled Zoe Gone which airs at 8PMEST on Lifetime!

According to CBS Soaps In Depth, who spoke with the talented Branson,”It ‘s about Jennifer, a 16-year-old girl who has a baby (Zoe) with the support of her boyfriend, but the pressure is too much for him and he runs away. Her mother is a divorcée who’s got a boyfriend, which is where I come in.  He’s the guy who wanted the woman, but not necessarily the child, but took on the role of helping to raise her anyway. But when his gal becomes a grandmother, that wasn’t in his plan. There are some moments of him not understanding and lashing out a bit.”

Later Baby Zoe goes missing! “That kicks in the young lady’s maternal instincts,” Branson relates. “Then the storyline becomes about finding the baby and Jennifer proving to herself the mother that she can be.”

There is more on the horizon for Branson with upcoming roles in Perception and NCIS, but the question remains, will Y&R ever bring back Jeff to Genoa City?  He might make a good on-screen romantic partner for Cady McClain’s upcoming recast of Kelly!  Thoughts?  Comment below!

Whew! That was a close one. For a moment there I was scared I was going to read that Ronan was coming back to Genoa City to help Jack grieve over Ol’ Red.

And the tremendous love between she and Jack. Yawn.

Id love for Ronan to come back and have a relationship with New Kelly or Hilary. I never like him with that Phyllis. He was a great . Thanks for the article and news on the show he will be in. I think Chloe was excellent with Chance or Ronan also. To bad she is leaving she is a sweet and sad for her she lost Dee Dee.

Love the actor but his character on Y&R was badly handled– so unless they can define the character better, give him a solid story with some legs Ronan is better off canvas than on. I could see them bringing him back for a short stint as a means to usher Chloe off the show. She could run off with him, leaving Kevin and all her sad memories behind. But I highly doubt either a long or short stint is in the cards. I think Ronan and his family, Nina and Chance are a thing of the past, or until new… Read more »

Mary, I agree w/everything you wrote regarding Nina and her sons. Also I think Cady could have replaced Phyllis but replacing Kelly tells me she’s taking that status Phyllis had. Cady is such a winning actress.

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Sits Down with Maurice Benard on ‘State of Mind’

Om his latest episode of his You Tube series, State of Mind, General Hospital’s Maurice Benard (Sonny Cortinhos) welcomes his co-star Cynthia Watros (Nina Reeves) for a highly-anticipated conversation and episode.

GH fans have watched for months on-air as Nina and an amnesiac Sonny aka “Mike” fell for each other, while everyone in Port Charles thought Sonny was dead, and Nina kept that secret in her vendetta against Carly.

Now, the two powerhouse performers have an intimate chat about Watros’ career highlights, raising twins, and working with each other in their often controversial storyline.

Daytime audiences first saw Watros as Annie Dutton on Guiding Light in which she won a Lead Actress Daytime Emmy – a performance which Benard recalls seeing with Cynthia acting up a storm in scenes on a courtroom witness stand that blew him away.

On her start on soaps, Cynthia shared that: “Soaps are amazing,” because not only do they help you make decisions really quickly, but that as an actor, it also taught her about lighting and finding her mark.

Cynthia related that she had made the heart-wrenching decision to leave New York and the role of GL’s Annie Dutton, because she wanted to go to L.A to work, which eventually landed her the role in the second season of ABC’s hit drama, Lost.

Throughout this State of Mind, Maurice and Cynthia touch on themes of depression, anxiety, and for Watros, raising her two teenaged girls, during this Covid-19 world we have all been living though.

When it came time to discuss working together on GH, Benard expressed that Cynthia has been a “a gem” to work with, after he had initial reservations about the storyline GH was set to tell.

In return, Watros shared that she has loved the storyline adding: “I love the complexity of it and how it’s not neat and clean since that’s how we are as people, we all make mistakes, and we are not all perfect.” And in working in scenes with Maurice, Cynthia expressed that he is “a rock’ who grounds everyone he works with.

Watch the entire conversation between Maurice and Cynthia on the latest State of Mind below. 

Then, let us know if you enjoyed the chat between the two, and if you are rooting for more Nina and Sonny, or are you still Team Carson via the comment section.
