So Long Springfield Las Vegas- The GL final cast frontier!

Crystal Chappell, Jessica LecciaThe final stop on The So Long Springfield tour was this past weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Rio Allsuites Hotel and Casino. This bittersweet fan event was also the end of the long series of goodbyes from the cast of Guiding Light.

The soap went off the air this past September and the GL heavy hitters were there in full force including Justin Deas ( Buzz) who never attends such functions.   The six-time Daytime Emmy winner was accompanied by his son, Joe.  Speaking of Emmy winners, four-time Daytime Emmy winner Kim Zimmer (Reva) along with her on-screen love Robert Newman (Josh) wowed the crowd.

And those gals from Venice formerly known as Otalia, Crystal Chappell and Jessica Leccia also made the trip to Sin City!  Jeff Branson(Shayne) and his mom attended, as did GL stalwart Frank Dicopolous (Frank) and Ron Raines (Alan)and Gina Tognoni (Dinah) with new hair color and do.  Me thinks’ its for her return as Kelly Cramer on One Life!  Check out the pics!

I was at the Vegas extravaganza also. Funny how you mentioned the heavy hitters and neglected Bradley Cole and Tom Phelphrey. From where I was sitting, seems the fans wanted Jeffrey and Reva to ride into the sunset together despite the pathetic ending that was offered as the show came to a close. Kim and Brad looked awfully good sitting together for the evening show. The concert was a delight and almost all the actors in attendance were warm and welcoming. It was an experience that was surreal. On one hand they were like old friends and on the other they were polite and engaging strangers. I want to thank Kim, Tom, and Bradley for sticking around after the end of the show to sign autographs, pose for even more pictures, and answer more questions. They are the stuff that my G.L. dreams were made of!

Y&R, AMC and GL Alum, Jeff Branson Featured In New AppleTV+ Drama, ‘For All Mankind’

Daytime Emmy winner, Jeff Branson is featured in a new drama coming your way on the new AppleTV+ platform.  Branson takes on the role of famous astronaut Neil Armstrong in For All Mankind.

At the epicenter of the story is NASA and the Soviet space program as they square off in the space race of the 1970s.  But this has a twist, America has lost the race and tensions boil over between the two nations.

The main focus in the series is the lives of the astronauts and the personal and professional relationships they encounter. For All Mankind presents an aspirational world where NASA and the space program remained a priority and a focal point of our hopes and dreams.

Branson is fondly remembered in soapland for his performances as Ronan Malloy on The Young and the Restless, Jonathan Randall on All My Children, and Shayne Lewis on Guiding Light.

For All Mankind is created by Emmy Award winner Ronald D. Moore (Outlander, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica), Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi.

In addition to Branson the cast includes: Joel Kinnaman, Michael Dorman, Wrenn Schmidt, Shantel VanSanten, Sarah Jones and Jodi Balfour. General Hospital’s Jason David (Aiden Spencer) also appears in the series.
