Signey Coleman will finally appear back on The Young and the Restless on the August 13th and 16th episodes of the number one daytime drama.  Coleman’s beloved and angelic Hope Wilson, mother of evil Adam, will return to the show in a series of flashbacks and dream sequences to help explain away why Adam became such a heinous individual! 

Below is an interesting excerpt from her new interview with TV Guide Magazine’s, Michael Logan.  Coleman was asked about the fact that she had a different Adam to play with on her recent stint, since when she was killed-off .  

Remember,  Chris Engen, who left under controversy when he would not film some uncomfortable scenes, played Coleman’s on-screen son back then,  and since then has been replaced by Michael Muhney. 

Coleman on knowing about Engen’s exit and Muhney coming into the role of Adam and what surrounded the abrupt casting chage: “ I knew about it. Chris has remained a friend of mine. All I can say is that I’m very sorry about what happened. Chris is a dynamic actor — no getting around it — and his commitment is 110 percent but we all have to do what makes us happy and what feels right. I was all for him working through it and keeping the job, and I was very disheartened that it turned out the way it did. But Michael is wonderful in the role. I stepped into Cyntha Watros’s shoes as Annie Dutton on Guiding Light so I know how hard it is to be a replacement. We had a lot of meaty material and it was great chomping into it with Michael. And he’s so handsome! He could be Mark Harmon’s  brother. I worked with Mark on Chicago Hope and had some very intimate, up close and personal scenes with him so I know what I’m talking about! [Laughs]”

In addition, the actress also discusses the creation of her new web series which will also star, and involve former GL and AMC star, Beth Ehlers, titled River Ridge.

Batten former boss, Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) called Susan and said about the role: , “Okay, there’s this character named Flora Gardens.”  To which Susan responded, “Does she have teeth?”   After the two shared a laugh, Susan said “yes’ to the role.

OLTL fans will remember Luna’s torrid relationship with Max Holden (James DePaiva).

The actress/writer/producer reported that she was a ‘still very nervous’ acting on soap again (she last appeared on One Life in 2012), but said once she got into the rhythm of the shooting and delivering the lines it was all good.

So, looking forward to seeing Susan on GH? Comment below. But first, take a moment to stroll down memory lane in this clip from OLTL, when Max proposes to Luna.

Peter Bergman Signs 5-Year Deal with The Young and the Restless

Some of the hottest news on Daytime Emmy night was the reveal that 23-time Daytime Emmy nominee, and 3-time Emmy-winner, Peter Bergman is staying put at The Young and the Restless for quite some time to come, in fact, at least five more years.

Bergman, who plays Genoa City staple, Jack Abbott, has inked a new five-year deal to stay with the CBS daytime drama series, which is a significant contract in the world of soaps.  The usual contact for actors is somewhere between one and four years, with thirteen-week or twenty-six-week cycle, if the show were to not pick up an actors option.

While Y&R has been renewed thus far through the 2024 TV season, it would seem this move to ensure Bergman is sticking around as the show moves past its 50th year on the air, is a vote of confidence by Sony Pictures Television and CBS that the top-rated daytime drama will live on.

Deadline first reported the contract news.  Peter joined Y&R back in 1989, after first successful soap foray on All My Children as Dr, Cliff Warner.

So, what do you think about Peter signing on for five more years at Y&R? Comment below.
