According to SOD; Rylan will now bring her Abby Newman back to the canvas on recurring basis though. T he popular actress will start taping new episodes in January.

So will Abby and Carmine (Marco Dapper) have a future?  Is Abby coming back for some Newman drama?

So far not impressed in the least with the new regime. The sets for Avery and Victor are a nice change but the stories seem to be all over the place.

For the love of God, let this be the LAST wedding for Victor and Nikki.

Hearing Marcy Rylan is coming back may keep me watching, she was a breath of fresh air in a stale old show.

JFP trademark is look and special effects, not story. This has still been proven right again.

Exactly. JFP destroys every soap she goes to. She destroyed Another World which eventually led to their demise and ruined OLTL when she was at the helm there. She was the reason the impeccable Robin Strasser left OLTL in 2001 because of JFP. Thank god, I don’t watch the Y&R. LOL.

She should never have been let go. She is one of the freshest actresses to be seen on this soap in ages. Now, if you would only do something about keeping “Daniel” in town. He deserved to have a storyline also.

I agree with everything you said, Diane.

I was also really starting to like Jennifer Landon paired with Michael Graziadei, but it is too bad they let her go.

Daniel was exciting with Amber and I found that his scenes were Lily made her as part of a couple enjoyable. I just want to fall asleep when Crystal and Daniel Goddard share scenes together. To me, they are boring. Now when she had lunch with Leslie the other day, I enjoyed her scenes.

Fantastic news. I know I’m in the minority, but I am really enjoying the show. It’s more serious and relatable. It’s not perfect but I am very happy with the improvements. Abby being fired and not even written off, was the one big mistake. Happy they are correcting.

I am so happy for the character of Abby being back and so so SO happy for Marcy Rylan and her little family (two little boys like me) that she will have a job, albeit recurring. Marcy is such a sweet woman and she never should have been let go in the first place.

I think they realize that Abby was an important character and getting rid of her was an error in judgement I am grateful they are willing to correct. If gives me hope that they will do what is in the best interest of the show, over their own egos.

Well, thank god Phelps and Griffin realized what a mistake it was letting her go.

Now, if they would only send Fen to Canada or wherever the hell Scottie is supposed to be and put Summer into a coma I would be really thrilled.

Good news! She’s a great actress. Too bad she’s no longer on contract, maybe one day.

I like it too. It’s just Classic Story telling. I love that Chloe is getting a decent story. I’m excited about the new additions to the show

Can only agree it IS “fantastic” that Marcy is the one bringing back the Abby we all love. She was made for that role. She makes Abby entertaining, but not irritating.

Not every actress can carry off that spoiled brat, diva personality without making you hate them. 😉

PLEASE put her on contract!!!

We need to give it time. It is much better than the crap we had with MAB and I think the new regime is trying to provide what has been missing from Y&R for some time now – Telliing a tale and watching it unravel.

Oh, and I am glad Marcy is back!

YESSSSSSSSSS! Abby is a huge part of the show-she is connected to almost everyone! And Marcy Rylan is to die for adorable!. Can’t wait, bring Carmine with her! He is so FINE he hurts my eyes! (but in a good way!, ha)

So glad she is back. She was my favorite on Guiding light and has been my favorite on here. She helps to make the show more interesting. Love her. Phyllis needs to go and give Abby a contract. Can’t stand Phyllis.

Love that she’s back. Y&R needs a spark.

Letting Marcy go was a huge mistake! She was adorable and had finally evolved her once cartoon character into a well grounded character. Now lets see what she can do with a good writer for a change!

Not to mention they have story left to tell. What happened to all her shares of Newman stock? There’s definitely more there.

I am delighted ! The teen age new comers have been tres boring – except NewNoah is getting interesting. Abby was a brat but an amusing brat.

I’m VERY glad she’s back. So far, this is the only good decision made by the horrid JFP. The show is stinking up the screen as badly if not worse than it did under MAB. Not something I thought was possible.
Why TPTB insist on recycling failed producers like JFP who have killed other soaps instead of investing in people who actually love the genre more than their own egos is beyond me.

At least getting Marcy back is ONE step in the right direction. I’ve been unable to watch this trainwreck of a show. When she’s back, then so will I be.

YAY!!!!!

I’m in the minority here, because I do not like Abby, and was thrilled when she was writen out.

I also like what JFP has contributed to the show so far. I am very pleased with the Sharon/Adam/Chelsea storyline, and I love Avery and Nick. I do miss Daniel, Lucy and Daisy however, so I would love to see them return.

One Life to Live Alum Jonathan Groff Wins First Tony Award For ‘Merrily We Roll Along’

Finally, in his third Tony Award nomination, the multi-talented Jonathan Groff, was named the Tony winner in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical for his work in the Broadway revival of Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along at the 77th annual Tony Awards broadcast on CBS.

In one of the hotly contested categories of the night, Groff bested Brody Grant for The Outsiders, Dorian Harewood for The Notebook, Brian d’Arcy James for Days of Wine and Roses, and Oscar and Olivier Award winner Eddie Redmayne for Cabaret at the Kit Kat Club.

Many thought Groff should have won a Tony back in 2007 for his performance in the original Broadway cast of Spring Awakening, but ‘Merrily’ was the ticket to victory.

One Life to Live fans may remember Groff played the teenager Henry Mackler back in 2007, in what was to be a long arc of a storyline involving a school shooting, but his role as cut short after 11 episodes, due to the real-life Virginia Tech school shooting in April of 2007.

Delivering the most emotional and heartfelt acceptance speech Tony night, Jonathan began. “I grew up in a house surrounded by cornfields in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. I was raised by my parents, Jim and Julie Groff, and my brother David, and the three of them were sitting right there. Thank you for letting me dress up like Mary Poppins when I was three. Thank you for letting me act out scenes from I Love Lucy on my 10th birthday. Thank you for always allowing my freak flag to fly without ever making me feel weird about it.”

He added, “Even if they didn’t always understand me “my family knew the lifesaving power of fanning the flame of a young person’s passions without judgment. I walked through life with an open heart because you let me know that I could. Thank you to all of my teachers back in Pennsylvania, especially Sue Fisher, who told me I could do this for a living.”

Speaking to how Broadway has impacted his life, Groff further teared-up and expressed, “I moved to New York exactly 20 years ago this year and I got a job waiting tables and became a volunteer for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids. All I wanted was to be a part of this community. A thank you to everyone involved in Spring Awakening who not only made that dream come true, but also inspired me to come out of the closet when I was 23. I’m now 39 and musical theater is still saving my soul.”

“Maria Friedman, thank you for letting me be your Franklin Shepherd in this production of Merrily and allowing me the chance to accept respect and express both the lightest and darkest parts of myself,” Groff continued. “Daniel Radcliffe and Lindsay Mendez, you are more than old friends, you are soul mates, and I’m looking forward to watching each other change for the rest of our lives. Thank you to every member of the extraordinary cast for lifting this Merrily into the spiritual stratosphere.”

Groff concluded with, “And finally, I just want to say that when I was a kid in Pennsylvania, I used to record the Tony Awards on a VHS tape and watch the performances over and over again. And to actually be able to be a part of making theater in this city and just as much to be able to watch the work of this incredible, incredible community, has been the greatest gift and pleasure of my life. I thank you and thank you so much for this honor.”

Days Of Our Lives

Jonah Robinson Joins the Cast of Days of our Lives as Dr. Mark Greene

If you caught last Wednesday’s June 12th episode of Days of our Lives, a new doctor came running into Horton Town Square shirtless; much to the delight and then eventual chagrin of Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart).

Enter actor Jonah Robinson who is now on the Peacock streaming soap opera in the recurring role of Dr. Mark Greene. We meet Mark when Leo tries to hit on him, only to have Mark clarify to Leo he is straight, shocking Leo that his gaydar could have been so off.

Later, Mark is at University Hospital and stepping in for Chanel’s (Raven Bowens) doctor who was called away for the day and he assures Chanel and Johnny (Carson Boatman) that their unborn baby has a strong heartbeat, and at the moment is doing fine.

During the conversation, Mark reveals he is the big brother to his little sister, Felicity (Kennedy Garcia), with whom Chanel loves when she comes to the bake shop.  There was also a little ‘wink-wink’ moment, when Johnny recalls that the doctor on the hit NBC medical drama, ER, was named Dr. Mark Greene (Anthony Edwards), to which Salem’s Mark Greene, says he was named after.

Taking to his Instagram, Robinson shared, “Meet Dr. Mark Greene. So excited to be joining @dayspeacock. It’s an honor to be @kennedyjean04 @louis_tomeo ‘s big brother.”

So, it looks like there are 3 Greene siblings.  Will we eventually meet the parents?

Before Days of our Lives, Jonah was seen on Peacock’s Daisy Jones and the Six, and has appeared in independent movies and musical theatre productions throughout his career.

Do you hope DAYS expands Jonah’s role as the Greene family becomes more entrenched in story? What are you first impressions? Comment below.
