Sean Kanan's Current Visit to The Bold and the Beautiful Has Come to an End!

Photo Credit: Kathy Hutchins

Yesterday, the talented Sean Kanan, who has been able to take the very dark Deacon Sharpe from soap to soap announced via his twitter page that his time as Deacon on The Bold and the Beautiful is over, even though to viewers he just recently started airing!  So what does this mean for Deacon’s impact on the story with Hope and Liam and Bill’s machinations?

Kanan tweeted, “I want to thank all of you for your support. Returning to Bold was a great experience. Apparently Deacon’s time there has come to an end.”

No final airdate has been announced for Kanan, but were soapers hoping his stay on the show would be more long term?  Let us know your thoughts!

No place for him on B&B anymore.

From what the grapevine says, HE was hoping to stay longer too but a certain co-star vetoed that for whatever personal reasons.
I personally never cared for Deacon and don’t know why he is so popular on either show but I do admit that seeing Hope revisit that history is a bit titillating (although it highlights how ridiculous the SORAS is).

i read that too & tptb & tiic should not have gone along with that co-star……………what a waste of talent!!

Sure wish they could resurrect AJ Quartermaine and give him the role. Back in the day, he was fantastic as AJ.

So, I just read some gossip online & people are saying KKL wants SK out because she’s desperate to be part of a supercouple. If it’s true, I’ll say to that, it’s not about you KKL! Get a grip. She’s “Brooke” & that’s great but seriously, she’s dictating storyline now? …Not that great!

Everything over the last 20 some years of actors on this show who are involved with KKL & RM characters die. They are like watching paint dry he strokes her like a puppy dog NAUSEATING!!!!

don’t think stars should be able to OUT themselves on twitter. it gives away the storyline to the fans. not right

I agree. With the Internet, a lot of stories are ruined. Like when we found out Eileeen was leaving Y&R. As soon as I heard that, I knew Ash and Tuck wouldn’t reconcile.

Exactly, Mo. And you don’t feel invested in watching that particular storyline either, if you know someone is leaving! I love suspense & wondering every day what will happen next. I don’t like spoilers. Remember cliffhanger Fridays everyone? Now ABC shows the promos for GH & ruins everything (for me, that is)

Barbara

I completely agree. Besides the horrible writing, the other thing that I think is really killing the soaps is the rampant leaking of upcoming plots and their outcomes along with the coming/goings of actors on the shows. It is difficult to stay interested and anticipate an episode when we know the outcome in advance.

Other shows do things differently. This past season on “Celebrity Apprentice”, one episode was edited to give the impression that Aubrey O’Day walked off the show (which the next episode revealed was not the case). The day after, O’Day tweeted something to the effect that she stayed after that episode. O’Day’s tweet was removed within a matter of hours!! Other shows jealously guard against leaks.

One time I actually met a contestant on one of those reality game/show things (something like “The Bachelor” but can’t remember the title; the show flopped) before it aired. She said little to nothing about the show other than it was filmed in the Western US. She told me that there was a multi-million dollar penalty clause for disclosing info about it. I know that there would other issues (union rules, etc.) but couldn’t the soaps do something to shut down this flow of information? It would make it harder for sites like this to readily get “juicy” information but would make the shows more interesting.

The absolute WORST example of this: ATWT quit filming in June 2010 with the final episode airing in mid September 2010. Sometime in July, almost 2 months before everything had aired, the PRODUCER Chris Goutman gave an iinterview telling everything that was going to happen in the end!!!! I thought what he did was unforgiveable (maybe not as unforgiveable as the hack job that he and the writers did to that show but still bad!).

Mo

Barbara, agree–that thing about CA was bad. I couldn’t understand why Aubrey would post that. Let it play out on air so people would watch. Duh!

Part of these twits, I guess, is so the actors can let peeps know they’re available for jobs, but isn’t that what agents are for? They can advertise actors’ availability to the casting people without outing storylines.

I really hope Brad rethinks things on B&B. We’ve been overloaded with the the triangle of the next generation foreva. I don’t mind seeing it, but let’s have some other storylines. I still think he’s missing the boat not having Felicia and Thorne in story. Poor Thorne has to woo Taylor OFF CAMERA. He didn’t even get to appear when he sent her that chocolate fountain. And Thomas makes some quip about learning his lesson after being relegated to the basement. I thought, what about Thorne? He lives down there!

Instead of the revolving door between Y&R and Bold & The Beautiful, why doesn’t he just talk to GH, and see if they can figure out some way to bring AJ back from the dead? I always enjoyed his version of that character. You’re never really dead on a soap opera, so figure out a way to bring him back.

That would be fantastic.

WHAT???!!!!! He’s only been on a couple days, but he scenes have been great and I can see so much potential for story, long term story. Does he even come into contact with Amber?

The whole dealyo with Bill blackmailing the warden into releasing Deacon is so stupid. Wardens don’t have control over when inmates are released. They follow court orders. If the warden knowingly released an inmate early, they would be punished. It would have been better for Bill to blackmail the governor who could pardon Deacon.

Odd. all the hoopla for his return and poof, he’s gone. Too bad.

A COUPLE DAYS IS REDICULOUS !WHY BOTHER?/ HE COULD HAVE HAD A REAL IMPACT ON HOPE;S STORY AND BORING BROOKE, PLUS WE COULD SEE BILL HAVE SOME MORE FUN AS THE BAD GUY

Misfire, B&B. So much potential for Deacon’s return, in the person of Sean Kanan or another actor. He makes Brooke and others uncomfortable. He has a daughter and geez! If characters can rerturn from the dead and other such nonsense, then a man whose life has been a total con could give some riveting story in connecting with his now grown daughter. Or maybe he would turn tables on Bill Spencer and cause “the new Victor Newman” to take a fall or redirect his life and attentions or let go some of his vendettas (until the refire). There may be fireworks ahead for all we know, but again, this seems a waste of talent and another example of big announcements with little payoff.

Brad Bell is clueless. Sadly, this all part of a bigger problem that the soap has been going through for nearly a year–plots start, stop, and are all together dropped. There was Thorne and Taylor taking over FC, Rick and Amber taking over FC, Rick and Amber reminiscing and reuniting–all hinted at in interviews and subsequently killed before they even blossomed into a full-fledged storyline. Instead the entire show–every last conversation, even foreplay scenes between couples–has been given to the endlessly maddening Hope-Liam-Steffy triangle Don’t even get me started on the vanishing Marones–a HUGE mistake. Lesley-Anne Down is amazing, ageless, and beautiful–she deserved better.

Thank you Tom someone finally said something about LD she is gorgeous and a nice lady not to even give her a send off or JW was heartless, but Brad Bell has a long history of screwing over actors Crystal Chappell watch your back.

We all LOVE to see Deacon Sharpe, on Y&R or on B&B — PLEASE don’t take him away from us. I love to see the crossovers between the 2 shows. Don’t take the SEXY, SUAVE Deacon Sharpe away from us yet again!! He is a great actor as both the villain and the good guy,so give him a permanent, constant story line . We long term watchers appreciate the familiar faces and hate it when new faces come along, that’s what makes Y&R so great and the cross-overs to the B&B — PLEASE keep Deacon Sharpe!!

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

An ABC rep told Soap Opera Digest that the role of Jordan is being recast.

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!

Lauralee Bell On Her 35th Anniversary With Y&R: “My Hope For Cricket Is To Smile The Way She Used To & Chill Whenever Possible.”

Congratulations are in order this Sunday to Lauralee Bell who is celebrating her 35th anniversary with The Young and the Restless.  Hard to believe, it’s been 35 years since the perils of a young Cricket became front and center and those young love stories with Danny (Michael Damian), Phillip (Thom Bierdz) and eventually, Paul ( Doug Davidson).

As Cricket matured, so to was the decision to now call the character by her birth name, Christine.  After all, she became quite the legal eagle! For over three and a half decades with time-off in between, Lauralee has shared memorable storylines with the amazing Tricia Cast, and the late Jeanne Cooper as Nina and Katherine, and let’s not forget Michael Baldwin, played by Christian LeBlanc, to name just a few/

In a few tweets on Sunday, Lauralee acknowledged the day stating: “We all couldn’t do what we love to do without the viewers so thanks to them!”  She followed that up with a tweet filled with photos of herself and her co-stars throughout the years ,and some self-effacing humor stating: “Wasn’t going to post for YR anniversary, because I’m not one to put attention on me but no denying these people have made my life better. Thanks to crew & fans and my hope for Cricket is to smile the way she used to & chill whenever possible”

As viewers know, Lauralee is the daughter of Y&R creators, the late, great Bill Bell and his wife, Lee Phillip Bell.  We are sure Bill is smiling today for Lauralee and proud of this accomplishment.

Share your congrats for Lauralee on this milestone via the comment section below.  Then let us know your most memorable or favorite Cricket/Christine moment on the CBS Daytime drama series.

GH’s Vinessa Antoine Lands Primetime Series Will Make Canadian TV History!

Fantastic news for General Hospital favorite, Vinessa Antoine (Jordan)! The talented actress had landed the leading role in the primetime Canadian series, Diggstown!

The legal drama is scheduled to air this fall.  In Diggstown, Antoine will play Marcie Diggs, a top corporate lawyer who decides to dedicate herself to a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

This casting news will make Vinessa a part of Canadian TV history as the first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.

Antoine spoke to the Toronto Star about her starring role, “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system. And when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of color, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.”

However as suspected, and according to the Toronto Star: “General Hospital fans will not be happy to learn that Antoine, who has been with the show since 2014, will no longer be a series regular when she starts shooting Diggstown in August.”

So, excited to hear Vinessa has been cast in a leading primetime series?  Comment below!
