She is about the only person right now that I’d tune in to see. She was always great on the show!

There is a God! Tricia Cast is so solid in her role of Nina, has been since her youth. There are some actors and characters in daytime drama who may not be front and center, but there presence and engagement in stories is so valuable and necessary. In this case, Nina’s return strengthens the Chancellor family’s presence in Genoa City in addition to Devon Winters.

This is a pretty major announcement that we can all get excited about:) And just in time to become a grandmother!!!
Can we bring Daniel back too? He could get connected with Sally Spectra???

Hey don’t start counting booties yet. Abby may not get pregnant right away and Iam old fashioned enough to want to see them get married first.

I hope it’s not just for a fleeting moment like they are doing with Gloria. I have loved Nina since day one it will be a welcome change from all of this Adam business. I have a feeling, maybe I am wrong, that Sharon is marrying Rey to mask her feelings for Adam, and poor Rey will get screwed at the last minute. I hope I am wrong because I like them together. And don’t even get me started on Elena. She just annoys me Nina is definitely the welcome change that is needed now. Now we just need grandma… Read more »

You are entirely right about Sharon’s reason for wanting to marry Rey all of a sudden. Though I am not crazy about their relationship, no chemistry, they act like brother and sister. Her reason is obvious. She’s got the hots for Adam and I am sure he’ll crash the wedding, if it even gets that far.
I do not care for Elena either with her whiney, simpering stuff, it’s adding ten years to her life, OMG!

SO delighted to hear this. Tricia Cast was her first favourite actress/character since I first started watching Y&R. It was the storyline of the ending of David Kimball when I first started watching the show – and wasn’t even blown away by her performance.

She has always been a favorite of mine. She is so natural and plays perfectly with anyone she is up against on screen. So glad she is returning

I have absolutely no idea who that woman is.
But- it’s always good to have new stories
and characters returning creat new stories.

Maybe you should look up her history, than you’ll have an idea who she’s about when she gets there. I can take her or leave her, not her biggest fan.

Violent, I agree…I am in the minority but I have never been a Nina fan.

Now. If we could get rid of Cricket so she could be with Paul again, and would love to see her other son Ronan. He and Phyllis sure heated things up when he was there last time.

Yes, agree! Bring back Danny too and finally put her and Danny back together where they belong. Mab was setting up a great quad love story i think before she got fired , also with Chris trying to finally get Phyliss sent to jail for the hit and run years before. Would love to see those 5 in scenes together and toss Lauren and Michael in too! For old times sakes!

Yayyyy
Have her and Chance move into the Chancellor mansion and grace their presence in the home that once belonged to the legendary Kay!
..having those little criminals Kevin and Chloe feels disrespectful to her memory! At the least have them move into the smaller wing and get Chloe hot for Chance again. Her and Kevin are odd together. Throw Jill and Abby ( portrayed again by Emme Rylan) and we have the Chancellor clan 2.0

Was Nina a good girl or a bad girl?

Both. She got herself into plenty of mischief but has a heart of gold.

If I remember correctly, she started off bad and changed into good.

Bringing back Judith Chapman (Gloria) and Tricia Cast are some of the few remaining options that actually could revive my interest in Y&R. I hope that the writers have the talent (and freedom) to write something decent for both of them and the producers have enough horse sense to keep both women around and not give them a drive by appearance. I hope we don’t get two measly episodes where Nina pops into town, chats with Chance for 10 minutes, spends 5 minutes recalling old times with Cricket and then flies out. When written properly, Nina is a compelling character… Read more »

All My Children and Guiding Light Vet, Gil Rogers Passes Away

Gil Rogers, who played one of the all-time most dastardly villains in soaps on All My Children and was the on-screen father to the one and only Reva Shayne (Kim Zimmer) on Guiding Light, has died at age 87.

News came via his daughter, Amanda Rogers on her Facebook page, relating that Gil passed away on March 2nd.

The actor had played Tad (Michael E. Knight) and Jenny’s (Kim Delaney) father, Ray Gardner on All My Children from 1977-1978 making multiple appearance though 2001, then later as Hawk Shayne on Guiding Light from 1985-1992 making multiple appearance through 2009.

Gil also appeared on Another World, Search for Tomorrow and The Doctors.

In her post, Amanda wrote: “Gil Rogers died this morning. As you all know, my dad was awesome. He was my best friend, confidant, mentor and just an awesome dad. He came to pick me and  Charlotte Whitaker Zdanowski up at clubs at 2AM in our teens to keep us safe, and drank bourbon with me every day since moving out here 2 years ago. He was welcoming and kind, funny and gregarious, a shameless flirt and a fierce protector. He loved his dinners with grandkids and endured animated movies and discussions about pokemon. And I miss him so terribly already. He died in his sleep, without pain or fear. I am so grateful to have had such a great father and to have spent these past 2 years with him every day.”

Check out this vintage scene below from All My Children where Ray played by Rogers blows up the Martin house.

Now share your remembrances of Gil’s performances and along with condolences for his family in the comment section.

Chris Harrison In First Interview Since ‘Bachelor’ Controversy Says He Wants To Be Back as Host; But GMA’s Michael Strahan Says Apology was a “Surface Response”

Thursday’s Good Morning America featured the highly-publicized first interview with ‘Bachelor’ franchise host and executive producer, Chris Harrison, since he stepped away from the show following his controversial remarks on current Bachelor contestant Rachel Kirkconnell, amid the airing of a season that has seen the first-ever Black male lead of the reality series, Matt James.

Speaking with GMA co-host, Michael Strahan, Harrison spoke of remarks he made during his interview with ex-Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay on Extra that sparked the firestorm.

Harrison admitted the words he spoke to Lindsey were “in a manner that perpetuates racism,” adding “I am an imperfect man I made a mistake and I own that. I believe that mistake doesn’t reflect who I am or what I stand for.”

 

The incident began when photos surfaced on social media of Kirkconnell at an Old South-themed party that she attended back in 2018, along with allegations she “liked” many Instagram posts that were racist in nature, and what many viewed as Harrison coming to her defense in this time of what he then called “cancel culture”.

On GMA, Chris expressed: “Antebellum parties are not OK,  Past, present, future, knowing what that represents is unacceptable.”

He also apologized to Lindsay, who had to shut down her Instagram account because of viral vitriol being sent her way over the incident with Harrison, adding this message to the public, “Anyone who is throwing hate towards Rachel Lindsay, please stop. It’s unacceptable.”

As to how he is trying to make amends, Harrison shared: “I made a mistake and I own that, Racism, oppression, these are big dynamic problems and they take serious work. I am committed to that work.”  The longtime Bachelor host then announced he is working with race educator Dr. Eric Dyson who has taught him about the idea of “counsel, not cancel”.

Chris says he plans to be back hosting the reality-dating series, expressing:  “I plan to be back. I want to be back.  This interview is not the finish line. There is much more work to be done.”

Following the exclusive, Michael Strahan described his conversation with Chris Harrison stating: “His apology is his apology, but it felt like it got nothing more than a surface response on any of this. Obviously, he is the man who wants to clearly stay on the show, but only time will tell if there is any meaning behind his words.”

So, what do you think of Chris Harrison’s responses during his first interview since the controversy? Should he return to hosting The Bachelor franchise? Comment below. But first check out his GMA exclusive.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
