Let me say first, I am beginning to enjoy Rey and Lola. But,is it really necessary to bring his wife on now? We barely know anything about Rey and his story with Sharon is just beginning. So, another newcomer is introduced? Before i am slammed, I like newbies and i know they are necessary for the continuation of a show. But, not at rapid fire and again, not at the expense of established characters.

They are much cheaper than a character that has been on scene for 41 years. No offence to Doug D. but the budget is driving these exits.

I think the idea to introduce Ray’s wife now could possibly be due to Abby and others interest in Ray’s background, and the fued with his brother Arturo.Methinks something happened with this woman and the two brothers.Maybe she was with Arturo first and Rey interferred, or Arturo came between Rey and his wife.I remember Rey asking Arturo if he’d told Abby what he’d done. I like both these men,and hate to find out,one is really a dog!

Noemi Gonzalez/Mia is very pretty and so far it’s hard to picture her as Rey’s wife..
Looking forward to the New stories.
I am a fan of the Rosales family, they are new and refreshing.
It didn’t mention how long ‘Mia’ will be with Y&R..
Is she a short stint or long time?

Enough already. Slow down the build up until we leave all of them!

Enough with the newbies, Mal Young needs to be fired, send the sob back to the UK. He is killing Y&R. I do like Lola, she is my favorite new character. Get rid of Nate and the boring Tessa. Bring back Nina Webster and Sheila Carter. Amen. You

They are determined to shove Rey, etc. down our throats. NO. THANK. YOU. I am not interested in Rey, Arturo, Lolo, their background, sibling rivalry, or exes. I’ll be tuning out after Eileen’s exit.

Looks like we got a Telenova going on here! Hopefully she can give Arturo and Rey acting lessons!

One of the best writers in the industry Douglas Marland always said be slow introducing new characters so the audience can care about them don’t make characters that people love and have been on the show a long time do stupid stuff that’s out of character. I am shocked that MY has been given free reign but I believe the Bells sold their rights. Doug was on recurring since Jan I think he got kicked to the curb because of social media I could have written for him I think he got a raw deal

whynot

Let’s just call this what it is: Y&R is no longer a predominantly rich, WHITE person show, and many people can’t handle it. There is no way that Paul Williams, Cristine, Nina, or Sheila (for the 800th time) were EVER more interesting than the new characters. NEVER. The reactions are more offensive than the show. OK. let’s see Billy and Syphilis MORE instead; that’s really an improvement. Let’s see Grandpa Mumbles cross his arms as a substitute for acting and watch him yell at Nikki and Jack MORE. GMAFB.

I love this comment. If soaps have any chance of surviving (which seems unlikely) they have to feature more than rich, white people. Yes, a lot of new characters are being introduced quickly — but Y&R is pretty far behind in the diversity game so it has a lot of ground to make up.

I love Mia in TY&TR. I don’t care what the nationality of the actor is as long as they can act. I don’t think Arturo or Tessa can act or bring anything to the show. Phyllis can act but please give her a better storyline. I don’t like her BULLY storyline.

I COMPLETELY AGREE! Phyllis is such a billy that is never made accountable for her actions. Tessa is boring and Mia is an embarrassment to all latinas.

Mia Rosales needs to be fired. She is a terrible actress.

‘Edge of Night’ Mainstay Forrest Compton Dies Following Complications From COVID-19

Sad news to report this Monday.  The longtime star of CBS’ and then ABC’s The Edge of Night, Forrest Compton. has passed away due to complications from COVID-19. Forrest died on Sunday at the age of 94.

His death was reported and confirmed by Compton’s friends and an article in the Shelter Island Reporter.

As Edge of Night and longtime daytime fans know, Forrest played Monticello’s district attorney, Mike Karr.  He played this key role from 1971 until the show’s cancellation in 1984.  The show was originally titled “The Edge of Night” and eventually just became “Edge of Night”.   The soap which was steeped in murder mysteries ran on CBS from 1956–1975 and on ABC from 1975–1984,   In addition, Forrest along with his on-screen wife, Ann Flood (Nancy Karr) were one of the most popular duos in daytime.

Not only did Compton appear on EON, but he also had soap roles on As the World Turns, One Life to Live and All My Children.   In primetime, Forrest was best known for his role on Gomer Pyle: USMC opposite  Jim Nabors and Frank Sutton as Lieutenant Colonel Edward Gray.

In a heartwarming story where fan meets actor and helps him out (according to the Shelter Island Reporter) Compton was only slated to appear in two episodes a week for the next 13 weeks on The Edge of Night, when he needed an apartment in New York City near the studio, so when he heard about a one-bedroom on East 72nd he went to see Al, the super.  Forrest later learned that Al was such a devotee of  The Edge of Night that he locked his office door every day at 2 p.m. to watch uninterrupted. When Forrest mentioned that he had just been hired to play Mike Karr, the super said, “You’re getting that apartment.”’

Sharon Gabet who starred as Raven on Edge of Night, posted on Facebook, a tribute and remembrance of her former co-star: “Woody, as he was affectionately known to all of us on The Edge of Night, was a master professional, hilarious, smart, kind and gentle. I spoke with him a couple years ago on his birthday and he was active and happy in his retirement. Rest in peace, Woody, and give hugs and kisses to Larkin, Lois, Dennis, Nick, Joel, Irving and all the other EDGE alumni up there.  THE story about Woody. He was on EON when they were LIVE. It was brutal, but Woody was one of the best “straight face” men in the business. So he is doing a scene with Nancy his wife (the glorious Ann Flood – another “straight face” master). He walks in the kitchen and sits down and his line was supposed to be “Gee, it’s hard to get up in the morning.” as Nancy gave him his coffee. Instead, Mike Karr says on national TV, “Gee it’s hard to get IT up in the morning, Nancy.” There was pandemonium among the crew during the commercial break as you can imagine.”

Now below, watch the opening title sequence fro the The Edge of Night over the years, many of which feature Forrest as Mike Karr at the very opening or at the end as one of the series most well-known and beloved characters.
