I was hoping to attend this casting, however, I could not get out of my scheduled work shift.

This is probably a good idea for fledgling actors…and quite a baptism by fire given the time constraints of a soap schedule. But I hope it’s not also a trigger for a show (especially GENERAL HOSPITAL) to add more unnecessary characters. I feel that Y&R made that mistake with Stitch, Luca, probably more I can’t recall. And don’t get me started on GH’S transgressions in this area: Jordan, Andre, Valentin, Nurse Amy, Aaron, Parker, T.J., Claudette, Officer (!) Valerie, Claudette’s daughter…enough already!

I agree Soaphound. Or they could go the opposite way, such as B&B, who hire wonderful talent, and don’t take advantage of that talent. In my opinion, one example would be the terrifically talented actor who plays Maya’s dad. Ioved when Maya’s family was introduced and getting all that air time. At least it took us away from the world of Wyatt, Steffie, and Liam, if only for a little while

B&B’s Annika Noelle Shares Her Heartache on Pregnancy Loss

In a very well-written and touching essay written by The Bold and the Beautiful’s Annika Noelle (Hope), herself, the actress shares with the readers details of two miscarriages that she had not publicly revealed until this time.

In her story for Glamour entitled, “Losing a Child in the Limelight”, Noelle shares the heartache and pain of losing a child while filming the demands of a soap opera, and especially Hope’s storyline which for months featured so much emotion and so many tears after the baby loss storyline on-air she was the vehicle in which to tell the tale.

However in real life, Noelle was going through something as well.  Annika reveals how she and her fiancé found out she was pregnant, and then 10 weeks later she lost the baby.  When they tried again, she lost the baby at 8 weeks.

In an excerpt, Annika expressed about keeping her pain private while working on the soap: “Fans and news articles speculated whether I was pregnant or just gained weight during quarantine. And once again the storyline called for ceaseless tears when I felt like I had no more to give. I guess looking back at it now, I was scared to jinx anything. I didn’t want people to know and have things not work out. And yet I wish I had because I would have given anything to have the understanding and support of the cast and crew. I felt so alone. The secret was isolating, yet the shame was debilitating. I felt like I had failed at something that should be easy. But as time marched on, I was surprised by a new feeling bubbling underneath the sorrow: an ancestral rage toward the burden of womanhood. And as I slowly began to open up about my loss to a select few, I was shocked by how many people had experienced it as well.”

In the end, Annika shares: “Anyone who follows me on social media can tell you I’m a deeply private person. But if there is one thing I’ve gained from my loss, it is a voice I’m no longer afraid to use.”

Make sure to read Annika’s moving article in full, then let us know in the comment section what you thought of it.
