Many of Frances Reid’s cast mates have released their thoughts on the passing of DAYS matriarch and legend, Frances Reid (Alice Horton).  Peter Reckell and Kristian Alfonso ( Bo and Hope) are said to be taking the news very hard. The duo worked so closely with Frances over many years.  Reckell, in particular had a wonderful on and off screen relationship with Reid.  Bo and Mrs. H, always were best buds.  Below is what some of the cast had to say this afternoon, starting with Reckell.

Peter Reckell:

“She was, has been, and always will be an inspiration to me – both as an actor and as a person. We will miss her.”

Suzanne Rogers:

“Since my mom lived on the east coast I always felt that Frances was my California mom. She always put me in my place but only in a nice, constructive way. We discussed everything from politics to religion. I miss those conversations. The hardest part about all this is not being able to talk to her again.”

Deidre Hall:

Frances Reid, although the consummate actors actor, was far from the donut baking, apron clad wife of Tom Horton most of America knew and loved. She  was a saucy, wildly outspoken and politically incorrect woman. Frances was never shy about speaking her mind openly and passionately- even as we counted down to tape. She called it like she saw it, whether she was taking on the union, or critiquing your hairstyle- mincing her words was never an option. She earned the respect and admiration of her friends and peers with her candid approach to life, work, and philosophy. 

Whether you loved or feared her, you always respected her- and if you had the courage, she was a magnificent teacher, mentor, friend. I feel a strong sense of personal loss as Frances makes her way to Heaven, and know that we shall not look upon her like again.

Peggy McKay:

“She was honest, spunky, and had such a wonderful sense of humor. She was so present, so there. One of the things I really admired about her was her support for her fellow actors.  She provided a strong voice for our union. She was a great, great woman.”

 

Leann Hunley:

“One thing I remember about her was that she was full of useful tips for her costars. I remember her telling me that as an actress it was very important to take at least a 20 minute nap during the day, but it was just as equally important not to mess up our hair and make-up. She was able to teach me a little trick of how to sleep completely still so when I woke up from my nap I didn’t have a hair or eyelash out of place! I love her, she was just lovely.”

 

James Reynolds:

“Frances was always a source of joy and inspiration to me. Her professionalism always inspired me to be better. Her joy and interest in life was such a pleasure to be around. I miss our conversations on politics and life. What a wonderful person.”

 

Louis Sorel:

“Frances Reid was a force of nature, part scamp, highly intelligent, funny, and spirited. We were blessed with her smile and compassion. What a lovely spirit we have to cherish.”
