There will be another new character on the canvas on CBS’ The Young and the Restless with casting news on Monday, that Madison Thompson had nabbed the new role of Jordan- a worldly young woman who will prove that there’s more than meets the eye.

According to Deadline, Madison starts work at CBS Television City on Tuesday, with her first episode set to air in late October.

If Thompson looks familiar she was recently seen in season 3 of Netflix’s hit drama, Ozark.   On that series, she played Erin, the 17-year-old daughter of Helen Pierce (Janet McTeer) who joined her mother as she moved to the Ozarks to help oversee the Byrdes’ operations.

The young actress has also been seen on on ABC’s Kevin (Probably) Saves the World.

Not only is Thompson an actress, but a freshmen at USC.

So, who do you think “Jordan” will be involved with in Genoa City as played by Madison Thompson? Comment below.

Oh god, another new character. Enough is enough with the newbies. Bring back Tricia Cast as Nina Webster please.

Johnny…EXACTLY!!!!! To me, at this point, Y&R constantly adding new characters to the canvas is getting WAY OUT OF HAND!!!!! And, dude…it’s like I’ve been saying FOREVER…BRING TRICIA CAST BACK TO Y&R ALREADY!!!!!

Have a good one.

I can’t see her being paired up with anyone who’s in her age bracket unless they bring Lily’s son Charlie back. Other than that, I really don’t see her doing much with this storyline that the writers have written for her.

Hmmmm–I like that idea. This girl has the look of Elvis Presley’s granddaughter.
And, speaking of Lily, she told Amanda that she was shocked finding out she was Hilary’s sister. Really? Same face!! Oh, gee—-what a shock!! These idiosyncrasies drive me nuts.

Hi there! what a splendid way to describe a way of treating viewers as well as characters in the show: idiosyncrasies– idiots, for short!

I’m hoping she is Tessa daughter or sister. If anyone is need of a storyline it is Tessa.

Plsssss do not put her anywhere near Theo. The only person that should be near that clown is a airline agent to get him a tic outta town
Put her with Mariah and Tessa( is she must stay around) or better yet get Noah and Fenn back where they belong and beef up the young set since Vic, Jack and Nikki are really showing their age and wont be on set as often due to covid.
Make her a full out vixen to jazz up this sleepy town. Genoa citys very weak on drama these days.

Thank you. Wellsaid. My sentiments exactly. Theo is a stooge. A unit!!

Celia…my sentiments as well. In the beginning, I found Theo to be kind of intriguing. But, lately…Theo has been creeping me out. Beyond yikes and yuck.

Celia…have a good one.

Hi, Jay—so good to hear from you, my friend. Survived the rudiments of Covid, I see—-LOL.
I never did take to Theo. I still think he’s an imposter. Ciao–stay well.

We still haven’t seen Courtney Hope’s first appearance, so we don’t know if she is becoming a new character or if Sally Spectra II is coming to Genoa City. Maybe “Jordan” will be connected with this story line. Seems that Noah will return from his West Coast trip shortly since his mom is going to need more medical procedures.

And Madison did a really good job on Ozark, so looking forward to some new energy on this show. Super tired of the very boring writing and terrible storylines that these talented actors have to recite! We need some energy and mystery since COVID regulations are preventing the full-blown romance scenes.

Wow. First they cast Moses Winters, now this newbie? Hope they can write for them as GC is SO boring these days.

And yet you will not bring back the veterans they could help set up story bring characters back and then bring in new characters that are related etc etc etc Why?? Of course we need new generations but you have to care about them you have to make us know them!! Why is this so hard to understand ? Doug Davidson 42 years with this show bring him back then create family friends around him I just do not understand the ignorance of this writing team ! Nate his father was Paul’s best friend story there Chance he was involved with Paul I just don’t get the ignorance do they want the show to tank ?? Ok said enough !!

Kay, I am right there with you…Y&R is no more and like I said CBS/SONY, WAKE UP…

You can throw all the new characters you want at viewers it still doesn’t change the low ratings and poor writing. Covid-19 exposed your true weakness in the ratings game.

Y&R is in a slump right now, so new blood might help. And I’m always glad when The YOUNG & the Restless adds any character who is under 40! We have enough grandparents on the show!

I think this Jordan is the “older” girl that Faith has been sneaking around to be with.
I don’t understand why at this point when everything is fine with her mom, etc. that she is acting out and seemingly so unhappy. Another new teen angst SL I guess.

Ooh, l guessed right! Jordan may fool Sharon but I hope Nick knows she’s too good too be true.

GH’s Dominic Zamprogna Opens Up on Concerns that Dante Was A-Goner: “There’s Any Number of Ways Comas Can Go”

When Detective Dante Falconeri was shot by a Pikeman henchman, and Jason (Steve Burton) was revealed alive and well, it put actor Dominic Zamprogna in a coma, and a bad one in soap terms, at that. For awhile there, it was touch and go for Dante.

The good news is Dante pulled through and is now back to his old self, and just in time for Dominic Zamprogna’s 15th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, which is June 22nd.

Dominic spoke to Soap Opera Digest on his milestone, and reflected back on the fan response from earlier this year when it may have appeared he was exiting the show for a second time.


Zamprogna shared, “It’s nice to hear you say that people were worried about me – when I went into Frank’s (Valentini, EP, GH) office and he told me I was going into a coma, I started to worry about me (laughs)!”

From working on GH for a decade and a half now, Zamprogna has seen his fair share of comas, and in fact, his then on-screen wife, Lulu Spencer Falconeri was written off the show having never awakened from her coma.

“There’s any number of ways comas can go,” said the popular GH star. “People joke, ‘Oh, you’ve got easy work.’ And it’s like, ‘Yeah, as long as it’s an on-screen coma! I don’t want to be in an off-screen coma, because then I’m not on the show!” But honestly, that means the world because we all care what people think about us, you know? And if people are happy to have me around, it feels good, obviously. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t.”

So, are you glad that Dante is still alive and kicking? Did you think the show might write-off Dante after he was shot a few months back? Is it time, as Dominic head towards his 20th anniversary with the soap opera, for the powers-that-be to bring Lulu out of her coma? Should Dante and Sam (Kelly Monaco) eventually tie the knot?

Y&R’s Joshua Morrow Reveals on Losing the Role of B&B’s Dylan: “I Was Meant to Play Nick. Not Getting Dylan was the Greatest ‘Failure’ of My Life.”

Can you imagine that if things had turned out differently, The Young and the Restless’ Joshua Morrow (Nick Newman) would not be celebrating his 30th anniversary on the top-rated soap opera, but instead might be welcoming his son to the cast of The Bold and the Beautiful alongside of him?

In several interesting twists, Morrow, who this Friday, June 21st, celebrates his 30th anniversary on the show as Nick Newman (standalone episode and all) spoke about his original audition for CBS daytime that had him going up for the part of B&B’s Dylan Shaw, a Forrester Creations intern. As the behind the scenes story goes, that part when to Dylan Neal.

Joshua spoke to Soap Hub on his humble daytime beginnings, recalling, “B&B was a long, drawn out, multi-week thing where I had to audition like three times, and then, I had to go in for producers, and then, there was a screentest. He added, “It was demolishing. I was like, super cocky, and I was like, ‘Oh, everybody loves me.'”

From all indications, it was that audition for Dylan that led him to his prized Genoa City role of Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) and Victor’s (Eric Braeden) son. As Morrow remembered it, shortly after meeting with series Bill Bell (then co-creator and EP and head writer. plus then executive producer Ed Scott, and Heather Tom (ex-Victoria, Y&R, then Katie, B&B), he was hired to play Nick.

At from that moment on as Morrow explained it, “It was kismet. I was meant to play Nick. Not getting Dylan was the greatest ‘failure’ of my life.”  Now in the summer of 2024, Joshua’s son, Crew Morrow, has landed his first soap opera role as the new Will Spencer on The Bold and the Beautiful, the son of Katie (the aforementioned Tom), and Don Diamont (Bill).

While father and son will be on opposing but sister soap operas, might a cross over from Nick to Los Angeles be the ticket, so Joshua can finally say he was on B&B and someone share a scene or two or three with his on-screen son? Ya, never know in soapland.

So, what do you think about Joshua losing the role of B&B’s Dylan to Dylan Neal which set up him becoming a cast member at Y&R? Comment below.

Arianne Zucker Reflects Back on the ‘Access Hollywood’ Tape with Donald Trump, and Speaks to Her Exit from Days of our Lives

It’s been eight years, but somehow seems like ages ago, that Arianne Zucker was thrust into the mainstream public limelight, unfortunately not for her work as Nicole on Days of our Lives, but for the Access Hollywood taped that surfaced when former president Donald Trump  and current Republican nominee, visited the set of the (then) NBC soap opera, and met Zucker.

The tape captured a hot mic moment between Trump and then ‘Access’ host Billy Bush inside of their bus which featured lewd remarks about Zucker between the two men.

Speaking on the moment, Zucker opened about it on Rachel Uchitel’s Miss Understood podcast, where the video version of the interview is now on Uchitel’s You Tube Channel. Back in 2005, Arianne was the scene partner with Trump in his Apprentice/Days of our Lives crossover appearance, because her character of Nicole was at the time a gold-digger.

Zucker shared of her on set experience with Trump from 2005, “I had a great experience. He was lovely, and I had no idea anything behind the scenes was happening. So, it never affected me.” Next in October 2016, Arianne says she it got a call from her manager at the time when the Access Hollywood tapes came to light and that is when she first heard about the situation.

The actress and life coach reflected back, “Everybody has spoken poorly about somebody in their lifetime. I don’t care who you are, everybody has, it’s just people get caught on camera doing it. Unfortunately, that happens all the time. And if you’ve ever gone to a fraternity party, these things happen. So (when she later read the taped comments) I’m going, ‘sounds like something my fraternity guys I know would say.’ But I just didn’t see it in the way that people were seeing it.’”

Expressing why she never made an official comment when the press were asking for one, Arianne revealed, “I didn’t make a comment though, because I was in fear of losing my job. So I didn’t say anything.”  She added, “I felt attacked by the media because I knew all they wanted. I mean, the biggest thing was to get Trump off the ballot. I was like, that is not my job.”

Later, Arianne explained she felt she received no protection from the situation. “I got no apology from my place of employment. I really got no apology from NBC. I felt I had no protection. ”

DAYS fans are counting down and not happily that about six weeks from now, on July 29th, when Zucker makes her on-screen exit from Days of our Lives. After being fired for standing up to Corday Productions for on set sexual harassment and discrimination charges, the actress formally filed a lawsuit she has brought against her former employer which includes charges of wrongful termination.

Zucker said on her upcoming departure from DAYS, “I will not say how I leave the show. I do respect that we don’t want to share that. We want the fans to be excited and enticed.” However, Arianne confirmed that the character of Nicole is not ‘killed-off”.

So, what do you think of Arianne’s comments reflecting back on the Access Hollywood tapes media frenzy with Donald Trump, and her upcoming exit from DAYS? Weigh-in. But first, check out Ari on Rachel’s podcast below.
