Last weekend in Los Angeles, fans from all over the world and across the United States gathered together for The Young and the Restless Fan Club Weekend 2015. Y&R holds their annual gathering where fans can get up-close and personal with their favorites every two years, making it extra special for those who await the big event.

An Oxboard was the star of the show, along with the handsome men and beautiful women which comprise the talented A-list cast! Hilarity ensued when cast members: Amelia Heinle, Melissa Ordway, Christian LeBlanc, and even the one and only Jess Walton, attempted to balance themselves and move around the ballroom in front of enthusiastic and adoring fans on the personal transporter!

Major kudos goes to Cathy Tomas, the hard working fan club president of the number one soap opera, for making sure all the details were worked out and the fans were happy along with Y&R producers: Matt Olsen, Jimmy Freeman, and series publicist Matt Kane.

This year, Y&R decided to forego the traditional Q&A, and instead revealed a new format where actors took to the podium in groups designated by their storylines or families on the show. After everyone did a little shtick, welcomed the packed-house in the ballroom, and got the fans pumped up, they later took to their individual autograph tables so everyone could get a picture, and of course … a John Hancock… and a selfie!

I’ve been going to the Fan Expo/Comic Con for years since it was just a Star Trek convention. Was lucky enough to see William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy before Spock went to join the universe. Great lineup. Will be going again this fall. Last year met Robert Wise who at the time was the creep on Y&R as well as other sci-fi. He was very nice. Some day would like to go to the Star Trek convention in Las Vegas. What a lineup they had this year.

Natasha Henstridge To Play Opposite GH’s Departing Vinessa Antoine in DIGGSTOWN

More casting news from the upcoming Canadian legal drama series, Diggstown which will star General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) in the central role of Marcie Diggs.

As fans know, Antoine will be exiting GH in the role of Jordan as she begins filming the CBC series.

However, Antoine is getting a co-star on her new show, in none other than Natasha Henstridge.  The actress has previously appeared in CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Secret Circle.

 

According to Deadline, in Diggstown, Natasha will play Colleen MacDonald, a single, no-nonsense, openly gay director of legal aid now headquartered in Halifax after being blacklisted by the legal community in Toronto. She hopes to one day work her way back home.

As for the premise of the new series, Diggstown is set in the gritty arena of legal aid.  It centers on Marcie Diggs (Antoine), a star lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.  The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice as they work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias.”

Antoine is the first black actress to be cast as a dramatic series lead on iconic Canadian Broadcasting Company, CBC.

So, what do you think of the premise of Diggstown?  Sounds intriguing to us! Comment below.

GH’s Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford Deliver The Power Performance of The Week!

A grieving mother and sister found themselves stuck in a revenge plot gone haywire, that provided the backdrop in which two accomplished actresses; Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) were able to shine on episodes of General Hospital.

Although Peter’s kidnapping went on far too long, and fans on social media have their own viewpoints as to what they think of Mr. August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey), the final week of taking Peter hostage to torment him as payback for his part in Nathan’s death; gave Gati and Stafford scenes from the comedic, to the emotional, to the cray-cray, and more..

On Thursday’s episode, Nina is trying to talk down Liesl from torching the place, but Liesl is becoming more unhinged and more grief-stricken.  She says to Nina, “I lost my son.  I gave Nathan up to protect him.  I spent my life not even daring to gaze in his direction for fear that Cesar would take him.  I never wanted my son to be like him, and now my beautiful boy is buried in the ground, while the other son is still breathing!  So, I must finish this my way, Nina  …  with or without you!”

Pleading, an emotional Nina responds: “Aunt Liesl, you are not the only one who lost time with Nathan.  I did, too.  I missed him growing up.  I missed his childhood, and seeing the incredible man he turned into.  I feel his absence and I feel the loss every second of every day.  I hate Faison, and I will for the rest of my life, and I hate Anna (Finola Hughes) just like you did, but that does not justify what I have done… being an accomplice in this crazy revenge.  None of that is going to bring my brother back.”   Nina goes on to say:  “I knew J would not want his mother grieving alone. This isn’t grief anymore … this is madness.”

Obrecht with rage and sadness in her eyes says, “The brightest souls like my Nathan are extinguished.”  And from there, as viewers know by now, Liesl sets the fire, which sets the stage for Nina’s rescue, and the Friday cliffhanger of Finn (Michael Easton) having to decide whether to go in the burning building and get Peter out, or not.

Later on the pier, a stoic, but grief-stricken Liesl is arrested.  She spitefully tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), “Tell Anna something for me: ‘Now we are even!”‘

Earlier in the week, we saw how Kathleen Gati navigated the comedic yet dramatic moments as she had to knock Franco (Roger Howarth) out, while she was trying to get back to Spoon Island, as he realized Obrecht was the guilty party who took Peter.

Gati has made Obrecht, this one-of-a-kind character, come to life, no matter what the circumstances the writers put her in.  And as for Michelle Stafford, when Nina spoke of her brother and the loss she continues to feel, it was one of the most on-the-money moments for anyone who has lost a sibling that they looked to.

So, even through some of the absurdity of the circumstances, and as they were portraying two women trying to figure their way out of the mess they created,  Gati and Stafford never faltered as they committed to the material, and delivered this week’s Power Performance of the Week.
