My one and only favorite Diane Jenkins was way back when Alex Donnelley was Diane. Her and Jack would heat up the screen and I still remember her with him in a parked car making out and Y & R would play the John Couger Melencamp song “A little diddy bout Jack & Diane Two American kids doing the best they can”. Oh gosh I wish I could remember the name of that song. That Diane was a model for Jabot and Ashley & her hated each other. JMO but I think she was the best Diane they ever had… Read more »

@Nikki….And don’t forget about the other half of that naughty equation, Terry Lester as Jack Abbott!!!! He played that delicious bad boy to the hilt!!!!! Just as with Alex Donnelly, nothing can touch the original! (Although I have always liked Susan Walters….she was especially suited to her role as Lorna Forbes!)

OMG your so right Shay. Was there anybody that didn’t have a crush on Terry Lester. That’s one of the reasons it took me years to get use to this settled down Jack. He was always a playboy, dating the models and getting poor old John Abbott upset with him. If I had a dime for every time John told Jack to grow up or he had to grow up, I’d be a rich woman by now.

Oh yes, Nikki! TL was my first soap crush….even at a tender age, I always went for those mercurial blond types! Although I only saw him during the summer months, that brief time certainly cemented him in my mind as the one and only Jack Abbott! After his departure from Y&R, I really didn’t watch the show anymore, yet I always kept up with its happenings, thus when I heard that PB was permanently taking over the role of Jack, I knew that despite liking him just fine as AMC’s good guy Dr. Cliff Warner (opposite his lovely Nina….) he… Read more »

Susan Walters has been a favorite of mine since LOVING. She was awesome on that daytime drama. I like to imagine what would have happened had LVOING caught fire and continued to this day. Lorna Forbes would be an Erica Kane or Viki Lord legacy character with such history. I also liked her as Y&R’s Diane Jenkins. And remember her as Priscilla Presely and on NBC’s buzzed-about 1990s nurses soap NIGHTENGALES? She is amazingly beautiful and a fine actor. Am always happy to see her on screen wherever she pops up!

Susan was sheer perfection as Loving’s determined debutante, Lorna Forbes!!! Always well-attired, classy and impeccably groomed…..how I miss her sort of gorgeous GG that was such a soap staple during daytime’s heyday!
