Here is the new Fenmore Baldwin of Genoa City! When last seen, Fen was played by little Robbie Tucker, and now when Fen comes home after being tucked away in Canada, he will be a bonafide teenager!

Soap Opera Digest broke the news today that High School Musical 3:  Senior Year star, Max Ehrich has been cast in the role and fans should look for Fen’s arrival on the June 11th episode!

So, do you think that Max looks like a cross between Christian LeBlanc (Michael) and Tracey E Bregman (Lauren)?  Let us know! And, if you are looking forward to Fenmore mixing it up with his folks and Summer Newman as the days get hotter in GC!

Ehrich seems to be a handsome young man and his look as Fenmoire seems to fit what one might expect from Michael and Lauren’s progeny. What is more important, however, is strong story, convincing portrayal, and honest relationships. I hope that si the case here. Y&R rapidly ages its young people as much as Newmans swap wives and/or marry or bring people back form the dead.

The teens do not watch soaps in the summer anymore why the need for this rapid aging whatever they are smoking over there change the brand.

Lew, you know what my husband told me to quit biching about Y&R and just quit watching if it makes me that miserable. I sit down and watched three episodes the other night and did nothing but scream so he is right, so I guess MAB wins she lost a viewer. I will get my fix from GH!!!

I for one am not looking forward to the addition of teenage Fenmore and Summer.

As a teenager myself, I have no desire to watch other teenagers be horny with one another on my screen (which is why I don’t watch B&B either). I prefer WELL WRITTEN adult stories (something that Y&R is lacking in of itself).

Teenage stories generally just don’t interest me. The ones that actually do are a result of the heavy involvement of adults in said storyline.

You know it’s funny David. When I was a teenager I did not like teen storylines either (and still don’t). I agree with your comment.

I completely agree with what some of you are saying. If all you do is bitch about it (like my mother did for years), stop watching it and you’ll be much happier! My mother sure is! I find the teen aging hilarious, but I’m willing to roll with it. Why not. So when is Chloe’s daughter going to be 18? Next year? XP

Soap Smarts: How Daytime Dramas Are Using Ingenuity To Get Back Into Production During COVID-19

Daytime dramas seldom get the credit they deserve, and now they should be getting further credit for being the first back into production as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage on, and trying to implement new ways to keep their trademarks love scenes, intimate moments and two-person scenes somehow looking in tact; even though it will be far from how it was done in the past.

In the story from the Associated Press The Bold and the Beautiful EP, and head writer, Brad Bell – who’s soap was the first one back into the studio – commented on how the show is utilizing mannequins, or real-life significant others to help pull off close contact love scenes and how it is rather groundbreaking. “We feel almost like television pioneers all these years later because we’re the first ones out, blazing new ways of producing the shows with the current safety standards, and we’re getting the job done. It’s very exciting.”

When B&B scripts written pre-coronavirus were reviewed in preparation for shooting during the pandemic now, originally all the cinches and smooches were cut. But Bell found a solution whereby a remote actor recites lines as their on-camera scene partner responds in a “low, intimate voice” and engages in “beautiful, yearning eye contact” with an off-camera doll.

As far as the soapy embrace or lip-lock, B&B cast member Katrina Bowden (Flo) has had her husband and musician Ben Jorgensen stand in for her on-screen love interest, Darin Brooks (Wyatt) since returning to taping new episodes.

Days of our Lives EP Ken Corday noted to AP:  The “learning curve” is steep. Before the pandemic, “we were producing eight, one-hour episodes a week. That’s basically 40 or 50 scenes a day.  That’s going to be basically impossible to reopen, so to speak, at that pace. We’re going to have to be more careful. So will there be five shows a week, or more? Yet to be determined.  It will certainly cost more.”

B&B and now Y&R which heads back into production next week, and the others soaps, will be using the company called Reel Health, which launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to serve the entertainment industry, and hires medically trained workers to monitor sets and enforce protocols developed by a company epidemiologist and in accordance with industry and government standards,

Alicia Rodis, a veteran intimacy coordinator who helped the actors guild develop guidelines for taping scenes of romance and simulated sex. shared: “Finding ways to put romance on the screen is inevitable and necessary.  At the end of the day, intimacy isn’t going anywhere. Physical intimacy is a part of the human experience. And we’re going to have to find a way to be able to continue to tell these stories, even in extraordinary circumstances.”

So, what do you think of how soaps are tackling taping episodes in the new normal to give their fans a sense of all that they love from their favorite daytime dramas during COVID-19? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
