Great news for daytime fans and in particular those of  CBS’s top sudser, The Young and the Restless!  Daytime Emmy winner, Jess Walton (Jill) whose contract had been up with the series, has decided to stay put!

A major factor in Jess’s decision to stay was the shows’ willingness to work with the actress during her move from California to Oregon, but according to her Facebook page, all has been worked out!

Walton stated, “The show has been very accommodating to me during this move to Oregon and I love them for it!”

We can’t imagine Y&R without Walton’s Jill, and glad we will see more of this amazing talent in the future!

Yes, yes, yes!

Now get “Jill” a man. Y&R screwed up royally by letting Tristan Rogers go. Colin and Jill were so good!

I like Jess Walton. But Brenda Dickson was good and , to some extent, even better than Walton. But I wouldn’t imagine Dickson on Y&R today. The most recent picture I’ve seen from her made her look like a transsexual.

Yes, please give Jill a story that has her front and center and VITAL. Walton imbues Jill with more depth than writers give her or character credit for!

Congratulations. I love me some JILL and Jess Walton, who happens to be one of the greatest soap recasts of all time. Note to MAB: Utilize your core cast. Debbie Morgan, Darnell Williams, Genie Francis et al are all great actors, but Y&R is historically (before you) a classic slow-moving melodrama, and it takes years and even decades to build strong characters with strong ties to the show. Stop the stunt casting, and stop forcing plot-driven dribble down our throats. Focus on the lives and antics of Victor, Nikki, Jill and all their children, etc, and the ratings will follow.

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Mark Lawson Shares Heartfelt Sentiments As He Exits General Hospital

General Hospital fans knew Monday’s episode would bring with it who might have survived the explosion at the Floating Rib, and who might still be in peril or who did not make out.

This afternoon as viewers were learning the fate of several characters including Dustin, who was proposing to Lulu (Emme Rylan) as the bomb went off, his portrayer, Mark Lawson took to his Instagram to announce his exit from the series.

Mark expressed: “Actors know this moment is bittersweet.  Job well done, but leaving a set full of like-minded, inspired people. Playing Dustin was a joy. Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”

Check out Mark’s post below.

So, are you sad that Dustin is no longer on the canvas in Port Charles? Will you miss Mark in the role? Comment below.
