Is Brad's job just to do whatever his aunt tells him and also be Britt's GBF while having no love life or sex life of his own?

R4 Basically, I don't know why they haven't brought Lucas back I thought the last actor was cute. Though honestly I've always felt Lucas should be more of a flamboyant gay. I don't remember his biological mother, but his biological aunts include both Tiffany Hill and both Olivia St. John and Ava Jerome. His adopted mother is Bobbie Spencer and his adopted sister is Carly. Even his father Julian is quite dramatic. He should be a much, much more interesting character.

Really stupid that Lucas and Brad haven’t been in this never ending Wiley drama. Instead we get dopey Michael trying to take down Sonny.

Who are they planning on pairing Spinelli with? Maxie has Austin. Sam has Dante. Those would have been the two most obvious ones. I guess that leaves Britt but Cody seems to be warming to her. He still seems to be attracted to Maxie, so I guess Nurse Amy's size wouldn't be a problem for him. Plus, unlike Maxie, I'd say Amy is fat but still attractive, like Blanche's daughter on Golden Girls. He also seems like the kind of guy that would go for a tranny, so if Chet leaves I guess he could date Terry. I have honestly been surprised that there hasn't been more of an reaction to that story. I know its been very chaste but still, soapfans usually react to such things.

R24 Played by two actors who had great screen charisma as well with everyone they worked with. The other unnecessary screen death was of Liz Foster on "Y&R". Juliana McCarthy objected to the mess of the Jill paternity story from the start, and was told they'd recast if she didn't come back. Legacy characters deserve better, even if they weren't there during the early years like Alan and John.

Boy, NuNuJordan sure is pretty but she makes the previous actress look like Dame Judi Dench. Her scenes with Mo were painful.

by Anonymousreply 40June 14, 2022 7:35 PM

I totally agree about NuNuJordan. Huge miscast. Her acting teacher is Holly Gagnier (NuJennifer Smith) who is also Nicholas Chavez and Avery Pohl's acting teacher. Holly is not going to be able to make lemonade out of this lemon, there's nothing to work with. She needs to go back to modeling.

Why is Frank so stubborn about admitting when he's wrong? He seems to dig his heels in and keep miscasts just out of spite to the audience. All storylines involving Nik fall flat because Marcus is a one note dead behind the eyes amateur. The new cop that looks like a kid needs to go too.

NuTrina can act and is basically acceptable when she's not using the baby voice. No chemistry with Spencer though and even less with new cop. Whose bright idea was the Trina/Cop pairing? That person needs to be fired along with whomever put Austin/Maxie together.

Cody actor needs to look into a keto diet and get to the gym. Then I shall reassess the situation with him. Frank told JPS he needed to lose weight when he first came on the show, why hasn't he told this guy to cut back on the carbs?

I predict Nina buys out Carly's half of the MC. Her conversation with Olivia about having a right to be there because that's where Crimson is seemed to be setting that up. Or maybe a Nina-Ava consortium, which would be even more fun.

I've never watched GL in my life but I came a across a YT clip of Cynthia Watros as Annie recently and got sucked into a rabbit hole of watching quite a few episodes from 97/98. She really was good and very pretty too. I also didn't find Snarly as irritating as she is on GH.

Why can't these soap "stars" such as MB, LW and SB understand that insisting their characters ALWAYS WIN and be on the screen EVERY DAY and involved in EVERY storyline does not endear them to most people. I could tolerate LW and MB if their guarantees were 2 or 3 times a week instead of every friggin day. Also, why don't those two ever go on vacation? They need a month or so off like Genie and Finola take in the summer, it would give the viewers a well deserved respite.

It's also not interesting to most fans.

I'm an oldtimer soap fan and remember a few interviews where one of my favorites, Beverlee McKinsey, talked about that. It doesn't work when an actor always wants to "win" a scene or be the victor in the story. To sustain a long term story, even the alpha male in a story has to have ups and downs.

GH doesn't really write for the long term, and it doesn't do fan service well these days either. It's just "let's shit out a bunch of words on the page to get us through the next 30 days."

I think y'all are wrong about LW. I don't think she insists her character win anything. If you've followed anything in LW's career you can see that lady is down for anything. It's boring for most actors when their characters win all the time, but it's easy to play. This means they can get in and get out and not have to put any effort into what they're doing. Not too many actors would allow the two former, and better actresses who played the roll, to come back for that Carly special

I don't think that had anything to do with Laura Wright and everything to do with the writing. And to be honest, sometimes lightning doesn't always strike twice with actors and roles.

And for the record I'm not some big Laura Wright fan, I could take her or leave her, but I just don't think she is an ego maniac who is making demands. She just seems like one of these people who knows how lucky she is to have been employed steadily for 30 years doing what she loves.

R126 Which is so weird because Michelle couldn't stand Maura when they worked together on Y&R and the majority of the time they were both on GH, yet they're friends now lol same for Michelle and Laura, they were more so cordial until Michelle didn't want to have anything to do with her either, now they're on good terms again. When Michelle left, except for James Patrick Stuart, Marcus, Cynthia and maybe a few more, she acted like she was done with them (especially Frank, which she still seems to be lol) there were rumors that Michelle's bipolar and would have outbursts on set (along with her trying to "groom" younger female co-stars, whatever that meant lol it could've meant towards her religion) so that may explain it

by Anonymousreply 161July 5, 2022 9:17 AM

R140 Yes Cynthia was incredible as Annie while Laura was more tolerable as Cassie lol.

The whole "Sonny/Carly/Jason must always win was actually established by previous headwriters, such as Guza (Sonny/Jason his two favorites, though Carly was third; Sarah J. Brown was Carly when he first started as hw) and Elizabeth Korte (Carly is her favorite). Former hw Michele Val Jean voiced her concerns about that, saying how it hindered story for them to always win, yet that's how it was established and Brian Frons made it a point for them to always win too. Guza and Tamara Braun had many disagreements (as did Jill and Tamara) so if you notice during Tamara's years as Carly, Guza was passive aggressive in his writing, so her Carly suffered a lot. Charles Pratt was co-headwriter then and he's friends with Tamara, so his writing for Carly was more favorable (along with Korte, who was a scriptwriter under them; she loves the character irrespective of the actress) however Guza would make it a point to have Carly lose a lot. When Carly had her breakdown in 2005 that story was already planned months down the line with the intention of Tamara still being in the role, however she got into a screaming match with Jill shortly before quitting, forcing the recast of Jennifer Bransford (while Jill waited for Laura to be available from GL; Tamara was asked to stay at least six more months, then Sarah was asked to reprise Carly for the same amount of time, both refused). So it wasn't originally the actors insisting they're characters win, it was designated to them, and they became used to it. When Frons stepped down as head of daytime programming, Mo and Steve took that "we must always win" mentality with them, which didn't sit well with Ron (and Steve's travel schedule didn't sit well with Frank) which is why Steve quit in 2012, and why Maurice led the revolt to Ron being fired three years later.

by Anonymousreply 162July 5, 2022 9:41 AM

R146 That was Ron's idea lol. He wanted Jennifer Bransford back too, yet she refused, which angered Frank. At that time Laura didn't really have much say so since Frank prevented her from being fired a little over two years prior to that.

by Anonymousreply 163July 5, 2022 9:46 AM

R148 She wasn't too comfortable with either one being hired lol however she didn't get either one fired. Sarah initially had a conversation with Jill about coming back, although it was made clear not as Carly. Sarah never signed a contract for the nearly two years she was on, and from the beginning she had problems getting along with Wolf, Guza and other writers, resulting in her quitting to join Bold & Beautiful. Tamara's case is different in the sense that she was in talks with Frank behind the scenes to return as Carly for LW was planning to quit and join Young & Restless. When that didn't occur, Frank hired her as Kim, and the "rumor" is that he hired Wes Ramsey after Laura felt she was being "replaced" by Tamara (Steve had just returned, and ABC wanted a "return to narrative" for GH that fall, so Laura felt that was a slight to her with Tamara returning). Kim bombed and her issues with Frank & the writers caused Frank to not renew her contract.

by Anonymousreply 164July 5, 2022 9:57 AM

For R162 I meant their characters not they're lol. For R163 I meant that Laura didn't have say so in the Carly's anniversary show episode, and as others mentioned, her demands aren't necessarily about story, except for that one instance where she was unhappy in her pairing with Shawn, expressing her desire for Carly to be with Patrick or Johnny (pretty much anyone except Shawn) though that's the story Guza intended; Wolf/Altman broke them up and started her off with Johnny, then Ron broke them up in favor of Carly/Todd. Laura's demands are more minimal, such as her parking space (which Maura mistakenly parked in when she first arrived; Laura let her know that was her spot, which Maura kindly apologized for since she didn't know) and her insistence on taking Jane Elliott's dressing room when she quit lol so those (along with Wes being hired of course) are more of demands, unlike how Maurice and Steve used to tank scenes and try to get actors fired (which they admitted was wrong).

Stafford is also very good friends with Finola. This past Christmas there was a video of JPS and FH singing and dancing at a Christmas party at Michelle's house with Christain Le Blanc. Finola and Staff did a short lived tv series together in the 90s, Pacific Palisades, and have been friends ever since. Finola very quietly got divorced last year.

When MS left GH a DLer/GH insider posted that Roger H. had demanded Nina and Franco be broken up after his wife was visiting the set one day and MS got up in his wife's face and started yelling. MS had also recruited the Sasha, Willow and old Jordan to help promote her skin care line. I'm sure the Xenu sales pitch was strong too. That's one of their tactics, telling young actors starting out that xenu's teachings will help them be more successful.

It is also a xenu tactic to be over friendly and ingratiating so that's what Marcus is doing, everyone's instant best friend. See also: Tom Cruise. Too bad people are falling for it. Scienos are either being over the top charming and friendly or screaming in your face. I wonder if he will convert Nicholas .Chavez.

The fact that Tamara was paired with zombie Billy Miller didn't help matters. Why TPTB let him go on for several years refusing to act or engage is baffling.

I come across as some big fan of LW, but I'm not. I just think that what she asks for seems more reasonable for someone with her tenure on the show, as opposed to some of the other demands that certain others make. I'm sure that she's not paid anywhere near what Mo or Steve made and she is essentially the leading lady of the show. I think someone said that Stafford was making more than LW and that Maura West is making a comparable salary to LW. If she wants Jane Elliot's dressing room, let her have it. If the guy she's fucking needs a job to keep his health insurance up, then find him a spot.

I think Billy Miller get a raw raw raw deal and was pissed about things that went down. Quite frankly he should have never been Jason in the first place. I think he should have been Dylan. Frank is an odd producer. I've read that was a tense situation on set while he was still there.

Frank is a mathematician, not a visionary. If he can hire 5 beloved vets from other soaps at a certain price, for a certain time, he will. He doesn't care how they are written for, or if the audience hates them. It's a numbers game. He didn't keep Ramsey because of Laura Wright, he kept him because he had a contract and wouldn't waste the money. He did the same thing at OLTL with Crystal Hunt. She was universally reviled as Stacy Morasco (The Morasco Fiasco, anyone?), but he kept her on canvas until her time was up.

BM got screwed but his behavior in response to the injustice affected innocent people such as Tamara and was highly unprofessional. I've been screwed over in my career but had I responded by not giving a shit about my work I would have been out on my ass pronto. I'm sure they would have been happy to let BM out of his contract but he wanted a paycheck AND to display his anger. I've read here on DL that FV didn't want to take SB back but Mo went over his head to ABC execs who ordered Frank to take SB back. Things aren't as loving between FV and Mo (and SB) as they appear. I think FV just plays the game fawning over and acquiescing to Mo since Mo has ABC on his side. FV was probably thrilled to have an excuse to get rid of SB recently.

LW didn't just get her boyfriend a job so he could have health insurance, he got a long four year contract that was extended to an even longer four and half years. Recurring would have also qualified him for insurance until he found employment elsewhere. One year of that character/villain would have been sufficient. Also, these contract soap actors can be let go at I believe 16 week intervals, so there were many opportunities in 4.5 years to send him packing. LW's clout kept him there long past his expiration date. Same goes for BM and his zombie acting, why didn't they let him go at any of the designated 16 week cycles? FV had no problem abruptly sending the Shiloh actor packing despite him having a contract.

Pairing Tamara w/William de Vries made no sense at all. She should have been paired with Burton. It originally seemed the direction they'd go in. Kim was still in love with (who we now knew to be) Drew. Drew was married to Sam who should have been in love with both Drew and Jason, (she knew them as the same person until the undead one showed up). Sam would stay with Drew out of obligation. Kim would fall for Jason because of his strong resemblance to the Drew she had a child with. Jason would be drawn to Kim for various reasons, but mostly because he hadn't gotten laid in 5 years! They could have gotten two years of really great storyline out of that love quadruple. The best pairing would have eventually been the two identical twin brothers who hated each other but eventually grew respect and friendship, (Lucky/Nicholas 2.0). Perhaps that was the original plan? Boy did they fuck it up!

And I’m surprised they haven’t figured out a way to get Carly and Austin together because she had great chemistry with his Todd, and even his Franco.

Carly was almost killed off in 2001 (while Tamara was playing her) when then headwriter Megan McTavish wanted her gone since she couldn't stand the character; then ep Jill was in agreement, for Felicia Minei-Behr blocked her from hiring Gina Tognoni or Robin Christopher as Carly when Sarah quit, leading to the casting call which led to Tamara being hired somewhat by default. Maurice felt the character was essential to the canvas so he contacted ABC and was able to stop them from killing her off.
