Bill Bell was a genius when it came to soap writing…i watched Days when under his pen,,,,he had character driven stories about relationships and family that were well written and he didnt have to depend on the done to death(pun) bring them back from the dead to move a story…or far out plots like weather machines or devil possession to attract an audienc

audience…at Y&R when the show needed revamping due to loss of so many actors who played the Brooks family he had the gift of bringing in two new families like the Abbot and Newmans who were just as interesting and maybe even better…good thing that show had its original creator and writer at the helm who knew what he was doing.

Mr. Bell was a wonderful man, I always used to call him “Mr. Bell” and he would say “Call me Bill.” How much we miss a genius of daytime.

General Hospital

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
