Could he be a Rick recast? He does look like Justin Torkildsen, the actor that portrayed Rick and the actor paired the most w/ Frantz. Kyle Lowder needs to be fired from B&B and take acting lessons from his wife Ari Zucker, who’s actually a decent actress compared to Lowder. Or maybe he’s a Thomas recast? Online rumors say 1 of Ridge and Tay’s children gets killed off yet again. They shouldn’t kill off any more of Tay’s children. They should kill off 1 of Brooke’s children, and that should be Rick since Kyle Lowder has destroyed the character. Also,… Read more »

He’s suppose to play a guy naed Liam Cooper so he’s obviusly not playing Rick, Thomas, Eric Sharpe or any other actor already on the show or ex character. I think it would be cruel to kill of Taylor’s or Brooke’s children, Taylor has already lost 1 child and Brooke lost her brother 2 years ago and recently her mother and she has already lost children thru miscarriages. I think Kyle Lowder is a great actor and he has great chemistry with KKL, Brooke is really close to Rick and always has been, I think it’d destroy her to lose… Read more »

When I wrote that, Michael fairman did not update his article yet. When Fairman originally wrote this article, no details of the character’s name were released yet. Clifton will last on B&B if his character is paired w/ Amber since Brad bell can only write for Amber.

Tallulah, you’re the idiot! Open your eyes and read. Michael fairman did not update this entry when I first wrote. The first article did not specify Clifton’s character’s name. Why don’t you read my reply to Merima. And Kyle Lowder is and always will be a crappy actor and his “acting” will forever live in infamy in Talk Soup. LOL!

The internet is obviously a place for speaking your mind frankly. However, it’s disappointing that MF on air on soaps allows people to write insults and does not publish rebuttals to those insults. It was the same thing during the kish mess. My opinions abt the kish actors whining and bitterness was very unpopular on this board. Yet no one could refute the logic of my arguments regarding their firings. People were personally attacking me and calling me names, w/c is fine. I don’t care abt someone calling me names when I don’t even know these people personally. However, if… Read more »

That’s ok. It’s your board so what you say, goes. I’m glad (for lack of a more precise word) that what you wrote is directed at the entire board, even if it’s in reply to my comment. Things were much worse during the kish brouhaha. Being in entertainment, it makes people fair game, and if people think the critiques of soap actors, writers, exec producers, directors, shows, TPTB, etc are harsh here, they should read the other boards, w/c are a lot more intense.

I really hope he isn’t paired with Amber, I don’t even want to see her on B&B. I wish they’d just kill that idiot off.

Chanda: majority of the Forresters hated Amber when she left town. Ridge, Brooke, Stephanie, Bridget, Thomas and Rick hated her for trapping Ridge and Bridget in a pit at Big Bear and taping their icky kiss. Yes that storyline actually happened and they even went on a remote for that crap. So, it would actually be realistic if a murder mystery happened around Amber’s onscreen, there’s no way she can be revived, hallelujah death. They could even make Taylor the killer. Tay could have hit the booze again and blamed Amber for Tay’s second “death” and separation from Ridge and… Read more »

All My Children and Guiding Light Vet, Gil Rogers Passes Away

Gil Rogers, who played one of the all-time most dastardly villains in soaps on All My Children and was the on-screen father to the one and only Reva Shayne (Kim Zimmer) on Guiding Light, has died at age 87.

News came via his daughter, Amanda Rogers on her Facebook page, relating that Gil passed away on March 2nd.

The actor had played Tad (Michael E. Knight) and Jenny’s (Kim Delaney) father, Ray Gardner on All My Children from 1977-1978 making multiple appearance though 2001, then later as Hawk Shayne on Guiding Light from 1985-1992 making multiple appearance through 2009.

Gil also appeared on Another World, Search for Tomorrow and The Doctors.

In her post, Amanda wrote: “Gil Rogers died this morning. As you all know, my dad was awesome. He was my best friend, confidant, mentor and just an awesome dad. He came to pick me and  Charlotte Whitaker Zdanowski up at clubs at 2AM in our teens to keep us safe, and drank bourbon with me every day since moving out here 2 years ago. He was welcoming and kind, funny and gregarious, a shameless flirt and a fierce protector. He loved his dinners with grandkids and endured animated movies and discussions about pokemon. And I miss him so terribly already. He died in his sleep, without pain or fear. I am so grateful to have had such a great father and to have spent these past 2 years with him every day.”

Check out this vintage scene below from All My Children where Ray played by Rogers blows up the Martin house.

Chris Harrison In First Interview Since ‘Bachelor’ Controversy Says He Wants To Be Back as Host; But GMA’s Michael Strahan Says Apology was a “Surface Response”

Thursday’s Good Morning America featured the highly-publicized first interview with ‘Bachelor’ franchise host and executive producer, Chris Harrison, since he stepped away from the show following his controversial remarks on current Bachelor contestant Rachel Kirkconnell, amid the airing of a season that has seen the first-ever Black male lead of the reality series, Matt James.

Speaking with GMA co-host, Michael Strahan, Harrison spoke of remarks he made during his interview with ex-Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay on Extra that sparked the firestorm.

Harrison admitted the words he spoke to Lindsey were “in a manner that perpetuates racism,” adding “I am an imperfect man I made a mistake and I own that. I believe that mistake doesn’t reflect who I am or what I stand for.”

 

The incident began when photos surfaced on social media of Kirkconnell at an Old South-themed party that she attended back in 2018, along with allegations she “liked” many Instagram posts that were racist in nature, and what many viewed as Harrison coming to her defense in this time of what he then called “cancel culture”.

On GMA, Chris expressed: “Antebellum parties are not OK,  Past, present, future, knowing what that represents is unacceptable.”

He also apologized to Lindsay, who had to shut down her Instagram account because of viral vitriol being sent her way over the incident with Harrison, adding this message to the public, “Anyone who is throwing hate towards Rachel Lindsay, please stop. It’s unacceptable.”

As to how he is trying to make amends, Harrison shared: “I made a mistake and I own that, Racism, oppression, these are big dynamic problems and they take serious work. I am committed to that work.”  The longtime Bachelor host then announced he is working with race educator Dr. Eric Dyson who has taught him about the idea of “counsel, not cancel”.

Chris says he plans to be back hosting the reality-dating series, expressing:  “I plan to be back. I want to be back.  This interview is not the finish line. There is much more work to be done.”

Following the exclusive, Michael Strahan described his conversation with Chris Harrison stating: “His apology is his apology, but it felt like it got nothing more than a surface response on any of this. Obviously, he is the man who wants to clearly stay on the show, but only time will tell if there is any meaning behind his words.”

So, what do you think of Chris Harrison’s responses during his first interview since the controversy? Should he return to hosting The Bachelor franchise? Comment below. But first check out his GMA exclusive.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
