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….♥~

Jessica Tuck Returns This Week To General Hospital

There will be a Cassandra Pierce sighting in Port Charles, which means one of the best actresses we know, Jessica Tuck, will be back on your screens this week on ABC’s General Hospital.

Tuck, who became soap-famous for her role as Megan on One Life to Live from 1988-1992 and then went on to primetime television roles returns to the canvas as the evil Cassandra, a role she debuted on GH back in 2017.  Viewers last saw her pop during Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha’s (Sofia Matteson)vacation.

But this time look for Tuck to mix-it up with GH icon Genie Francis (Laura) in some major showdown scenes, when she holds the mayor and Curtis (Donnell Turner) at gunpoint on the Haunted Star.  Will these two be able to get the on-the-run villainess locked up for good? Don’t necessarily count on it.

Of course, a man who both Cassandra and Laura have an interest in bringing down, Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) plays heavy into the story. But will Cassandra do a double-cross of a double-cross? Who else may get a dose of something potentially lethal that she has been concocting?

Jessica told Soap Opera Digest that when she found out she would be working with Genie Francis; “I was like Woo-hoo! Hot diggity!  I mean, like many people, I have been a fan of hers forever and ever and ever.  It was fun to meet the person behind the character I’ve gotten to know.”

ABC and of course, her current series Transparent, as well as producer Ryan Murphy with whom she first worked with as Marilyn Miglin in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, a role which earned Judith a Primetime Emmy nomination.  Light will next be seen in Murphy’s Netflix series, The Politician with Bette Midler and Ben Platt.

Judith expressed to all that helped her have a successful career: “The fact is, if you were not in my life, the dream of this little girl sitting alone in her room in Trenton, N.J., reading plays and acting out Shakespeare passages, would never have come to pass. All of you have made and are continuing to make the powerful difference in my life and the lives of so many others  So, I say to all of you with deep and profound gratitude, thank you.  You remind me of who we all really and truly are. We are each other’s star.”
