Why was Cutter (Josh Kelly) featured in this vidoe? Could it be possible that he could be related to one of the two Todds since he said that people remind him of Todd, or is the show just pulling our chain and just asked him a question about Todd randomly?

I’d prefer it’ to be Trevor’s, because I don’t like invalidating eight years of a character’s history over this. Plus, I just prefer Trevor’s portrayal.

I also think it will be Trevor’s. They’re setting it up too much that it looks like it’s Roger, for it to be really be Roger.

The really Todd said something on the show today, that was so much what the Todd (2) was missing. He said, “You mean this guy sit-up a love shakle with Martie and no body question it, come on that should had been you first hint” Trevor playing Todd got me to stop watching OLTL and I have been watching it when Vickie and Joe was together, but he was taking away the way I viewed Todd, for me he did not fill or improve the character of Todd Manning . I did get Treavor a year before I stop watching.… Read more »

I sooooooo want it to be Trevor!!! He’s so talented and I love him with Florencia and his kids. I want RH to be a baddy who will go away. Sorry RH fans TSJ is just too great!

Todd Manning is the baddy. That’s why Trevor’s character is the impostor. Learn Todd’s history. Why do you TSJ fans NEED TSJ to have the name Todd when you don’t want him to play the character the way he was meant to be played?

we didn’t get to hear a comment from erika slezak – as Todd’s sister she knows him better than anyone AND what he’s capable of! I would have liked to hear from her which actor she prefers working with as her brother Todd and what she thinks of both actors.

Soap Smarts: How Daytime Dramas Are Using Ingenuity To Get Back Into Production During COVID-19

Daytime dramas seldom get the credit they deserve, and now they should be getting further credit for being the first back into production as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage on, and trying to implement new ways to keep their trademarks love scenes, intimate moments and two-person scenes somehow looking in tact; even though it will be far from how it was done in the past.

In the story from the Associated Press The Bold and the Beautiful EP, and head writer, Brad Bell – who’s soap was the first one back into the studio – commented on how the show is utilizing mannequins, or real-life significant others to help pull off close contact love scenes and how it is rather groundbreaking. “We feel almost like television pioneers all these years later because we’re the first ones out, blazing new ways of producing the shows with the current safety standards, and we’re getting the job done. It’s very exciting.”

When B&B scripts written pre-coronavirus were reviewed in preparation for shooting during the pandemic now, originally all the cinches and smooches were cut. But Bell found a solution whereby a remote actor recites lines as their on-camera scene partner responds in a “low, intimate voice” and engages in “beautiful, yearning eye contact” with an off-camera doll.

As far as the soapy embrace or lip-lock, B&B cast member Katrina Bowden (Flo) has had her husband and musician Ben Jorgensen stand in for her on-screen love interest, Darin Brooks (Wyatt) since returning to taping new episodes.

Days of our Lives EP Ken Corday noted to AP:  The “learning curve” is steep. Before the pandemic, “we were producing eight, one-hour episodes a week. That’s basically 40 or 50 scenes a day.  That’s going to be basically impossible to reopen, so to speak, at that pace. We’re going to have to be more careful. So will there be five shows a week, or more? Yet to be determined.  It will certainly cost more.”

B&B and now Y&R which heads back into production next week, and the others soaps, will be using the company called Reel Health, which launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to serve the entertainment industry, and hires medically trained workers to monitor sets and enforce protocols developed by a company epidemiologist and in accordance with industry and government standards,

Alicia Rodis, a veteran intimacy coordinator who helped the actors guild develop guidelines for taping scenes of romance and simulated sex. shared: “Finding ways to put romance on the screen is inevitable and necessary.  At the end of the day, intimacy isn’t going anywhere. Physical intimacy is a part of the human experience. And we’re going to have to find a way to be able to continue to tell these stories, even in extraordinary circumstances.”

So, what do you think of how soaps are tackling taping episodes in the new normal to give their fans a sense of all that they love from their favorite daytime dramas during COVID-19? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
