Patricia Barry, Best Known For Her Roles On DAYS and AMC, Dead At 93

Another memorable performer known for her work in the daytime community as well as countless motion pictures and primetime TV shows has passed away.

News today out of The Hollywood Reporter has that actress Patricia Barry, who played Addie Horton on Days of our Lives (1971-74) and the evil Peg “Cobra” English on All My Children (1980-1981) has died at the age of 93.  Barry also appeared on Guiding Light as the scheming Miss Sally Gleason (1984-1987) and in the 90’s on ABC’s Loving as the matriarch of the upper-crust Aldens, Isabelle.

But it was her role as Doug Williams (Bill Hayes) wife on Days, and the mother of Hope (Kristian Alfonso), that gained her notoriety.  Of course, her other daughter was Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes), who soon would fall in love with her mother’s husband.  On AMC, Peg was Brooke English’s (Julia Barr) mother who was later revealed to be a leader of drug cartel!

One of the earliest members of Women in Film and a former president of the nonprofit advocacy organization, Barry’s publicist announced that Patricia had died peacefully Tuesday at her home in Los Angeles.

Survivors include her daughters Miranda Barry, a former executive in charge of global Sesame Street productions, and Stephanie; son-in-law Mark; grandchildren Alixanne and Hailey; and godchildren Tracy and Stephen.  Memorial services are planned for early 2017 in Los Angeles and New York.

I have very fond memories of Patricia Barry’s wonderful performances in feature films, episodic television and as the terrible “Cobra” of All My Children. What a great and varied career. May she rest in peace.

Sad to hear of her passing. I also thought she was on “For Richer, For Poorer” or “Lovers and Friends”; maybe both. Anyone know for sure?

Our Mom will be there to welcome her into Heaven. She followed the ‘soaps’ every day and knew the stars history and could tell you all about the ‘character’ they played even if they had been on other shows over the years. Patricia Barry was one of her favorites. May she rest in peace.

I was really young but I remember her as miss sally on Guiding Light. I remember her being with H.B. and I think she was with him for his money. And I think H.B. and Alexandra were romantically involved around the same time if I’m not mistaken.

Soap Opera Royaly! I remember her from AMC when I was a kid, they don’t write me like that anymore!
I saw her in a a restaurant in New York City in the early 80s I assumed she was with her family. She was gracious as fans approached her. This was a very nice place but she was polite and kind to those rude fans! The mater d got rid of them! It was the last time me or my mother every interrupted a celebrity!

Another beloved daytime legend has passed away. Beyond sad. In 1981, I became such a big fan of Patricia Barry when I first noticed her playing Peg/”Cobra” aka Brooke’s mother on AMC. Rest In Peace, Miss Patricia. You will be truly missed. Amen.

Peace.

Loved her on AMC but love her more on old TV shows like Wagon Train, Murder She Wrote, Gunsmoke (B&W version) and others. She was a Grand Dame.

I remember her as Cobra on AMC. She was going to kill Brooke. Fantastic writing of that story line. I also remember her on GL, with H.B. Lewis. I saw her on an old Perry Mason episode and on Threes Company. She was a snobby church lady that was friends with Pastor Snow, Chrissy’s father. She played all rolls fantastically!

All My Children and ‘The Bay’ Star Eric Nelsen in the Cast of ‘Yellowstone’ Prequel ‘1883’

On Thursday, the full cast was announced for the highly-anticipated Yellowstone prequel that will bow on Paramount+ beginning on December 19th.

The Taylor Sheridan drama tells the tale of the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America. It is a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land — Montana.

According to Deadline, in the cast is none other than The Bay’s Daytime Emmy-winner, Eric Nelsen (Daniel Garrett), who was also part of the cast of Prospect Park’s reboot of All My Children as AJ Chandler.

In 1883, look for Nelsen to take on the role of Ennis, a young, handsome cowboy who agrees to help escort a group of inexperienced men, women and children north to find a home.

The series also stars: Billy Bob Thornton, Faith Hill, Gratiela Brancusi, Sam Elliott, Stephanie Nur, and Tim McGraw to name but a few.

So, will you be checking out Eric in 1883? Comment below.

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
