According to Soap Opera Digest, “Her first scenes will be with Daniel Goddard (Cane) and Christel Khalil (Lily).”  Just what Hillary Curtis will be up to when she mixes it up with the Genoa City crowd, remains to be seen.

She will probably be Tyler’s ex. I would love to see her with Tyler or Noah. Looking forward to her coming to the show.

Too many new faces. Why are they not focusing on the core families? Y&R is losing its core.

Actually I don’t care. All the new characters being brought in take story away from the core characters. Enough already. I want the writers to focus on the characters that I have been watching for years. I’m not interested in new characters

She’s gorgeous. I want her for Noah

I honestly would only care if she turns out to be a love interest for Devon. It would mean that the writers are actually invested in him, otherwise I don’t care.

Am liking a strong present of A-A characters, YR always was unique and diversity in their minority casts but last regime had great A-A actors but lousy stories.

Can she be a new love inerest for Adam? I love Shadam but Adam and Sharon need a break so they can get their crap together. In the mean time I don’t want Adam involved with that nasty con who is punishing him by keeping him from knowing about his baby. Let Adam hook up with the new beauty in GC.

I’m so tired of all these newbie characters, I really don’t care about them, even if they die. The death of Dylan & Leslie/Tyler Dad’s made me laugh. Death means nothing if we don’t know the characters or the characters associated with them for a long period of time. Why don’t they start up a new soap if they want a new cast?

Just what we needed — another new character from the writers that brought us Adriana, Detective Chavez, Mason, Tyler, and Dylan.

I think JFP has made sure Y£R makes excellent casting choices lately. They are doing all the right things to stay on top with a relevant audience unlike when the Bell’s were in charge. They have finally stopped catering to the oldest sector of viewers and developed a story young people are interested in seeing so they will finally get a better percentage of the key demo watching. I love the fact that every generation and great diversity is showcased. The show is at the top of its game!

Vince

The Oldest sector make up the majority of the viewers. They made a gigantic mistake with the recast of Kyle. The previous Kyle was great. The new one is ugly and creepy.

So, how long have you been working for CBS?

Last thing we need is more new characters.

Problem for me is that I don’t care about Leslie, Tyler, Gus, etc. They are too new to have major story built around them. Frankly, Redaric Williams is not that great an actor. Typical JFP move to go for a pretty face without substance. Force feeding the audience a character or story just doesn’t always work.

I feel bad for Kristoff St. John. The last few years he has been saddled with poor story and now some mediocre talent to share scenes. Neil has been an integral part of Y&R for decades. Why can’t they get him better story?

I welcome new characters IF they are intergrated well with core and legacy characters AND they have solid story. It takes time to find the love. I hope producers/writers have a long-range bible and stick to it. Surely Bill Bell had ideas he left his children (although I amnot sure his daughter-in-law adhered to it!).

Why can’t the writers come up with good stories for the charaters they already have? Just another charater with a lousy story line!! Getting to the point of not caring, which if enough start to feel like me that could spell the death of Y&R.

Totally agree with you!

Y&R needs to endear the fans with the recent loss of Jeanne Cooper. Focus on core family members and stop bringing all the new characters in. I FF through all scenes with Dylan, he does not work on this show. JFP will never let him go however.

Jaymes

I think Rose will turn out to be Drucilla. Gus probably was her father. We were never told of Drucilla father. We were told of how the Abbotsford maid, Mamie wasDru’s mother’s sister. I think Dru ended up in Chicago after falling over the cliff with her
in Genaoa citylost. I think when Neil and Lesley go looking for Rose, I think Neil will see that it it Dru. It will turn out Dru and Lesley are sister’s. The character of Dru is needed to callPhyllis out on her sh#t.

CASEY
CASEY

huh? We met Dru and Olivia’s father. This girl is way too young to be Dru. She looks younger than Lily.
Anyway, I don’t care for new characters.

Bryan

I am over all the ” new faces” that have no relevance to Y&R. JFP and the writers don’t have a clue about Y&R tradition and the core characters that are Y&R. The story lines right now are BORING or just lame!
Too much focus on the “teenagers” and their immature story llines … It’s like the Hollywood Heights of daytime TV.
Y&R will never be the same without the legendary Jeanne Cooper! If there is not some much needed improvement in the near future, I see Y&R signing off the air for good.

Jaymes

I know they usethis storyline all the time on this show, they should go a pass and haven’t it turn out Dylan was the baby Nikki had years ago.

Yes yes yes…i am very happy about YnR finally shoving things up… They know that the younger viewers are the ones that can increase thier rates…. Umm glad that they are going to get an actress that can bring it like Dru and the previous Lily… Dont get more wrong…I like Kristel… but she doesn’t really portray a very good black woman…. Maybe this lovely young lady will be Rose… or the X who Broke Tylers heart…With his sexy delicious self…I can’t wait.. Ive watched 4040 yrs and black American wants to see our characters portray us!!

First of all, something was lost in the translation above. The newbie that has been cast has a totally different name and is not being cast as “Rose.” So, Rose could very well be Dru and I sincerely hope so. I also hope it is Victoria Rowell. No one can play that part as well as she. We need a strong African-American woman in the mix again. I am sick of Lily. She fought to be Cane, has two beautiful children with him and is drooling over Tyler. Get over it before you lose your husband. Please bring Dru back.

Sorry – I meant “she fought to be with Cane…

I don’t hate the new characters ( yet) , just want them to be better actors. Sometimes painful to watch. Hang in there everyone, gotta get better right?

Some kind of way she will tie into Neil. Lost daughter? Something with Rose? It was a little emphasis when they met.

Marci Miller Final DAYS Episode Airs Today As She Shares Heartfelt Goodbye: “Thanks For The Sweet Ride, Abby”

On key episodes today, Miller’s Abby goes toe to toe with a vindictive Gabi (Camila Banus) who gloats how Abby ended up back in a sanitarium … thanks to her!

Miller made the decision to leave DAYS and pursue a career in feature film and primetime TV roles

In an Instagram post, Miller shared:”This is a picture of me 2 yrs ago, painting my nails (and a dear friend’s while I’m at it) for a screen test the next morning to play a woman named Abigail Deveraux Dimera on Days of Our Lives. Who would’ve thought?! This morning I sit in the same exact spot knowing that today, my last episode will air as this beloved character. I reflect, and am grateful. I am better for having been a part of it all. Knowing I’ve laid her in a pair of loving and capable hands does me good. Thanks for the sweet ride, Abby. My heart is full today. Xx #Days #Milly#Chabby”

So, send your well-wishes to Marci here as we give her a standing ovation for an incredible job well-done for her portrayal of Abby et al.  Will you miss Marci? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Soaps Lift Boycott Threat Of Daytime Emmys

In a key move to allow those performers in front of the camera and behind the scenes crew and creatives to be acknowledged for their accomplishments this calendar year, the four daytime dramas collectively have decided to lift their threatened boycott and participate in the upcoming 46th annual Daytime Emmy competition.

This comes after the four network soaps (Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful, and The Young and the Restless) banded together after being unsatisfied with snafu’s coming out of the 45th annual Daytime Emmy Awards earlier this year in April, and a list of grievances and concerns they asked to be addressed by the organization that administers the Emmy contest.

Then, following an internal investigation by NATAS by the law firm of Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth of Washington, DC, the results which were released on November 8th, and being in receipt of their findings, the soaps decided to move forward while still having concerns they want addressed.

In a statement from the group, a spokesperson related to Deadline, who broke the story late Friday: “As a group, we are not in agreement with all of the conclusions that NATAS reached.  However, in the spirit of working with NATAS and the TV Academy on improving the integrity of the Daytime Emmys, we have lifted our boycott. We look forward to meeting with NATAS to discuss their findings and our concerns in greater detail.”

On Saturday, someone close to the situation said to Michael Fairman TV: “Our participation doesn’t mean we accept their proposal moving forward, we still have major issues that we will be discussing with the Chair and President (of NATAS), but as a collective whole, we don’t want to penalize our actors for NATAS’ mis-management.”

The 46th Annual Daytime Emmy submissions began earlier this week on November 12th, with the Daytime Emmys slated to be handed out in early May of 2019.

So, are you glad that the network soaps have lifted their threatened boycott so that your favorite performers, whose performances you have loved over the last 11 months can be acknowledged for their talents and hard work? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
