I like Judi Evans a lot, but my favorite role she played will always be Adrienne on DAYS. Don’t get me wrong at the time I liked her as Beth. That said I loved Beth Chamberlain. When I think of Beth I think of Beth Chamberlain because she made the role her own and that’s who I prefer as Beth. It’s a shame that Vincent Irizzary didn’t get the chance to work with her as Nick. Coincidentally I also prefer Nick to Lujack!

I’ve said that multiple times, though I’m guessing she doesn’t want to relocate to LA. Maybe they can figure out a way to have her fly out to LA and film her scenes, and then return to the East Coast, though COVID makes that much travel a bit challenging. I would LOVE for Beth and Peter be together!!! (I love both Beths, BTW – Judi in NYC with Phillip was fantastic but Beth C definitely matured the role of Beth Raines)

I really loved how their love story was built slowly and believably, from a friendship which drew on their strengths, helping and encouraging each other. Whenever I hear “Almost Paradise,” I think of Lujack and Beth on the beach! ♥️

All My Children and Guiding Light Vet, Gil Rogers Passes Away

Gil Rogers, who played one of the all-time most dastardly villains in soaps on All My Children and was the on-screen father to the one and only Reva Shayne (Kim Zimmer) on Guiding Light, has died at age 87.

News came via his daughter, Amanda Rogers on her Facebook page, relating that Gil passed away on March 2nd.

The actor had played Tad (Michael E. Knight) and Jenny’s (Kim Delaney) father, Ray Gardner on All My Children from 1977-1978 making multiple appearance though 2001, then later as Hawk Shayne on Guiding Light from 1985-1992 making multiple appearance through 2009.

Gil also appeared on Another World, Search for Tomorrow and The Doctors.

In her post, Amanda wrote: “Gil Rogers died this morning. As you all know, my dad was awesome. He was my best friend, confidant, mentor and just an awesome dad. He came to pick me and  Charlotte Whitaker Zdanowski up at clubs at 2AM in our teens to keep us safe, and drank bourbon with me every day since moving out here 2 years ago. He was welcoming and kind, funny and gregarious, a shameless flirt and a fierce protector. He loved his dinners with grandkids and endured animated movies and discussions about pokemon. And I miss him so terribly already. He died in his sleep, without pain or fear. I am so grateful to have had such a great father and to have spent these past 2 years with him every day.”

Check out this vintage scene below from All My Children where Ray played by Rogers blows up the Martin house.

Now share your remembrances of Gil’s performances and along with condolences for his family in the comment section.
