We Love Soaps,Newcomb on 50 Greatest Soap Actress countdown!

As many know yesterday We Love Soaps revealed its number one actress in its Top 50 countdown of the Greatest Soap Actresses of All Time, in which The Bold and the Beautiful’s, Susan Flannery ( Stephanie) took the top spot.  So On-Air On-Soaps asked the website’s editor-in-chief, (and brainchild of the list), Roger Newcomb to give us his thoughts exclusively on why he decided to put together the countdown and engage a panel of experts for his concept,  as well as his personal thoughts on the final five!   Newcomb and his site truly have cornered the market on being the official soap historical society!  Who doesn’t love that?

Newcomb on why came up with the 50 Greatest Actress  list: “We decided to do the 50 Greatest Actresses countdown because many of us were drawn into daytime as children by some of these performers.  Several of them have never won Emmys and we thought this would be a great way to bring attention to all the talented women daytime has been blessed with over the years.  No single panelist picked their Top 5 in the exact order they finished but two of 14 people had the same five actresses.”

Newcomb on his feelings on the final five actresses who earned the top spots:  “As for the Top 5, I love them all.  Susan Flannery has been wowing daytime audiences since 1996.  Kim Zimmer gave my favorite performance of all time – the “Slut of Springfield” scene.  Erika Slezak has made the same role interesting for 39 years which is not easy.  I started my personal list with the great Beverlee McKinsey.  And Robin Strasser is the most dedicated actress I’ve ever seen.  It’s a shame that many of their classic performances, espcially Strasser and McKinsey on Another World and Flannery on Days of Our Lives, seem to be lost forever.”

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.

General Hospital fans knew Monday’s episode would bring with it who might have survived the explosion at the Floating Rib, and who might still be in peril or who did not make out.

This afternoon as viewers were learning the fate of several characters including Dustin, who was proposing to Lulu (Emme Rylan) as the bomb went off, his portrayer, Mark Lawson took to his Instagram to announce his exit from the series.

Mark expressed: “Actors know this moment is bittersweet.  Job well done, but leaving a set full of like-minded, inspired people. Playing Dustin was a joy. Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”

Check out Mark’s post below.
