The Bold and the Beautiful’s Maya (Karla Mosley) has gotten an on-screen younger sister in the form of actress Reign Edwards, who started work today on  the CBS Daytime soap opera!  And today also happens to be the 18th birthday for the actress … what a great way to celebrate!

Reign plays the contract role of Nicole Avant, and will debut sometime in January!

According to a chit chat with Soap Opera Digest, Reign revealed this about the character of Nicole: “I think Nicole is going to bring something pretty cool to the table for everybody. She’s Maya’s little sister, so they’re going to have some similarities but they’ll also have their differences, too. You’ll really get to see that.”

So will Reign be a little troublemaker like her big sis Maya? How will she play into the current storylines on the canvas? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

I’m no fan of her big sis, but if she had plenty of differences from Maya, I could come to like her. We’ll see.

Put her in a love triangle with Ally and Oliver…i read a lot of BBs fans love triangles…lol

Oh yeah, because 3 years of the Hope/Liam/Steffy madness and a year and half of Hope/Liam/Wyatt isn’t nearly enough to satisfy us. Especially since decades of Brooke/Ridge/Taylor didn’t precede the kiddie squad. Good lord, enough with the love triangles! But that seems like all Brad Bell knows what to write about.

I see her being put in Aly’s orbit and she might cause some trouble for Caroline (to help her big sister).

B&B put out a casting call for what sounded like RJ Forrester, so either they will pair them up, or this sounds like a rival for Aly, so we’ll be seeing a Nicole/Oliver/Aly triangle….she’s very pretty!!!!! uggh guess this means Maya is sticking around…..they need to get rid of her and bring back Kimberly Fairchild or Amber!!! I loved Rick and Kimberly back in the day!!!!!

Well if Maya is in the Rick/Caroline age bracket, then Nicole is in the Aly/Oliver/Ivy/Liam/Wyatt bracket.

With Hope supposedly exiting the series, it could be a Aly/Oliver diversion and then later a new direction for Wyatt or Liam.

Hoping she’s trouble. We need a good new young villainess to stir it up. And I am glad Maya’s family will be explored and expanded. She’s got a checkered past and I’m glad they are allowing cast members of color to grow beyond the token role and be real and vibrant (not always sainted or sexless) characters. Y&R has been better at this for years, but B&B I don’t think has ever been able to get it right before.

I was hoping for less Maya, not more and not her family. I wish they had explored more with her ex, but that turned up to be a big dud.

Jimmy

Yes! I agree! Why would they hire Ricky Paul Goldin, a great actor with a past on daytime, as Maya’s ex for only two or three episodes?! They should have factored him in to current stories and kept him around. Terrible wasted opportunity.

Jimmy

Yes, this is exactly what we need, another Avant. Seriously, I don’t know when Maya became such a gold digger, but I’ve just about had it with her. I really hope her sister isn’t like her at all, or at least a milder version of her.

But to be honest, the last thing B&B needs right now is a new character, especially when Thorne, Taylor, Steffy, Thomas, Bridget, Nick, Jackie, Owen, and many others are on the sidelines. I would take the Marones back over Maya and her sister any day.

Patty

I soooooo agree Jimmy. They should be using core characters more including a new Hope, not a new character connected to Maya who needs to shut up! The show is only a half hour. Don’t need so see more Maya/sister scenes, LOL

Looking forward to seeing this beautiful young lady in her BB debut, hopefully she’s given some good material to work with. She might not have a fair shot, as you can tell by some of the comments, no matter what type of material they give her.

Carla

Good point Penny. It all depends on the material she is given. I do agree with the other comments, I have had enough of My a, but I am looking forward to her sister checking in.

Melissa

I want to see Maya and her sister, this is a good thing to see more young diverse characters on the show It’s set in LA for goodness sakes.

keller

Totally agree! A lot of those comments sound personal, almost as if they don’t understand someone is writing Maya the actresses material.

let hope go(should’ve been gone long ago!) I agree bring back the marones! funny how quin’s character gets to stay after crime incidents with liam and ivy had that been a diverse character they would have been gone by now!! ridge talks smack about maya but he’s done more bed hopping than a rabbit on crack!! hope they don’t make nicole’s character from only down and out begginings like dayzee and maya!! where’s marcus and justin? and steffie? c’mon writers! !!!

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir ‘Nothing General About It’ Goes Nationwide Today

Today is the day! After months of fans eagerly awaiting the nationwide release of two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) moving and insightful memoir, it’s finally available in book stores and online everywhere.

According to the publisher HarperCollins: The memoir Nothing General About It, looks back to Maurice’s youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH.

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.  A shocking, riveting, and utterly candid memoir of love, adversity, and ultimately hope, Nothing General About It offers insights and advice for everyone trying to cope with mental illness, and is a motivational story that offers lessons in perseverance—of the importance of believing in and fighting for yourself through the darkest times.  Nothing General About It includes a 16-page insert featuring approximately 50 photographs.”

Popstar! TV Serves Up A Twist For Daytime Emmy Digital Drama Series Competition With ‘Evil Touch’ & ‘Death Squad’

This year the 47th annual Daytime Emmys competition features a crowded and mostly dramatic field of contenders in the burgeoning Outstanding Digital Drama Series category.  Over the years, this category has featured digital series that feature notable stars past or present from your favorite daytime dramas over the years from The Bay to After Forever.

Now comes two offerings and contenders from Associated Television International that are certainly not the usual suspects one would come to expect when voting for the different series in the running … for they have a significant horror-genre, superhero, or even one might say CW-type series bent to them. Both series have made it through into the Daytime Emmy blue ribbon round of voting.

Both Evil Touch and Death Squad are the series that are competing in the Outstanding Digital Drama Series and Outstanding Directing Team for a Digital Drama Series categories.  The shows both are seen exclusively on Popstar! TV – the only independent digital network producing original dramas.

But wait! When delving into the cast of Evil Touch we found some familiar faces to daytime!  Featured in it are: Daniel Covin (Ex-Hunter – Prospect Park’s All My Children reboot), Alicia Leigh Willis (Ex- Courtney, General Hospital, and Erik Fellows (Ex- Days and currently Damian in The Bay ).

Evil Touch is a horror -genre fish-out-of-water story with a demonic possession angle. It begins with a group of students from a small American college on a religious studies tour with their professor when they become stranded in the middle of nowhere. Seeking help in the village, they soon discover that there is something very strange and menacing about this place and its inhabitants. Before they know it, they find themselves captives and they learn that the villagers aren’t the only threat.

As for Death Squad that is in-line with some of the recent popular zombie series  ( i.e. Walking Dead) that have become so popular these days.  In it, members of a team of private contractors, all former soldiers who served together in Iraq are hired by a shadowy businessman to go into a former Soviet bio-weapons lab that has been re-purposed for advanced research and development. The team has few details when they enter the facility and begin searching for the lead scientist. Viewers quickly learn that something went very wrong in the lab, and as it turns out, it’s biggest threat is that most of the lab workers have been turned into the living dead.

Clearly, these two shows are vastly different from the love stories, familial dramas and relationship-driven types of fare that often compete in the digital drama categories at the Daytime Emmys.  Since they both have made into the blue-ribbon round; is it further proof that daytime and digital television is getting on-board with the horror genre, too?
