In one of the more touching of all the statements issued today by cast mates and professional acquaintances, and long time friends and fans of Jeanne Cooper,  it was The Young and the Restless, Doug Davidson (Paul Williams) who put it all in perfect perspective with words that make you understand just who Jeanne Cooper was as a person,a  friend,  and a cast mate.

Doug Davidson: “She was one of a kind and she held my hand for 35 years. She helped me be a better actor, husband, parent, and friend. My life was so enriched  having known her. She was such a loving, kind soul. With Jeanne, there was no judgment, no rules. She loved you for you. She always had time for you and was so gracious with her love. For me, she was a personal giant, an sublime example of how to behave on planet Earth. I will miss her more than I can describe. I will say with certainty, that Heaven just got a hell of a lot more interesting! ….God’s speed, my dear friend. I love you.”

Doug your words where so profound and beautiful!
I was lucky enough to get to meet Jeanne Cooper at The Day Time Emmy Awards in Las Vegas a few years ago and thought she was such a wonderful human being. I would of loved to been able to talk with her longer…. As crazy as this sounds, I’ve been watching Y & R since 1979 and feel I know all the long time actors. Even tho I do not, Y & R has been a part of my life for so long now, I feel I’ve lost my Great Aunt or Grandmother.
Jeanne Cooper you will be missed and Y & R will not be the same without you!
God Speed!

A lovely love letter from Doug to Jeanne….she was so much more than a co worker to him & many others…a mentor, an advisor, a true friend, a member of a ‘special” family….her loss will be felt by everyone….she was a true legend as an actress, but more than that a great lady as a human being….Rest in peace Jeanne Cooper….you were one of a kind….♥~

‘The Masked Singer’ Runner-up, Ex- AMC’s Jesse McCartney, Recalls Working With David Canary

If you caught the finale of The Masked Singer this week, you know that “The Turtle” was revealed to be none other than former All My Children star and recording artist, Jesse McCartney.

While McCartney came in as the runner-up, losing out to Kandi Burress, he spoke to Digital Journal about his latest single, “Friends’ and recalled his time working with the one and only David Canary (Ex-Stuart/Adam) on the now defunct ABC daytime drama series.

As a young JR Chandler from 1998-2001, that put him sharing on-screen time with Canary, who played his father.  Jesse remembers all of the lines of dialogue thrown at him at a young age was not fun.

When speaking of his time with Canary, McCartney shared: “He was one of the sweetest guys on the planet and he was such a kind soul. He played my father, Adam Chandler, and not only was he the star of the show but he played his own twin brother, Stuart. He had double the lines of any character on the show, and in my three years on the show, he never messed up a line even once. There was a time when David helped me when I was having a moment and I struggled with remembering my lines, so as a result, the soap world for me is very sentimental.”
