It’s going to be odd to see Sofia and Malcolm interact, considering that Shemar Moore was not portraying the character when he was reintroduced and married to Sofia several years ago. I’m also curious about what happened to Moses, considering that we never see him on screen and he’s rarely ever mentioned. The same thing happens on B&B with Brooke and Nick’s son (who was carried by Taylor) Jack. Soaps seem to forget about the children of certain characters when it’s convenient for story purposes. As for Neil’s romances with Sofia and Leslie, they never clicked. Dru will always be… Read more »

It will be great seeing the ladies. These episodes will make Kristoff’s passing more real since I’m still in the “I can’t believe it stage.” Even if the all the returnees weren’t attending , and the show wasn’t having remembrance episodes, Kristoff’s death is still a final reality because God has made the ultimate call which none of us can rescind.

Who or what they were is zero to me, as too many others.

I appreciate the care taken to honor Mr. St. John’s passing and his character of Neil Winters. Of course, the people in his life, including these women, should be included and would be expected. But I expect to see Moses or understand is absence. Y&R at various time has played fast and loose with its characters. Neil Winters suffered that fate too when he went dark and rogue, and seemed to get involved in these romances that went nowhere fast. I mean no disrespect to the actors. They are very good. It was misguided storytelling. Dru was his forever and… Read more »

I dont understand an appearance of Julia Pace Mitchell who only had a one time thing with Neil, producing Moses. I would rather have seen Nia Peoples who portrayed his second wife Karen Taylor, although she left him for sleeping with Devon’s mother. Neil certainly had his problems with the ladies. I understand Moses will return, being played by the same little actor. I don’t even remember the last actor to play Malcolm, as far as I am concerned it will always be Shemar Moore. That leads me to my next question of whether or not they will bring up… Read more »

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?
