Well, CRAP! Summer is gone and they never bothered to un-retconn Maggie as her mother. Or did I miss a major plot point? There have been many days when I've fallen asleep watching. At least if they'd done away with that little bit of revised history garbage, we could be relatively certain she'd never come back. Now, who knows....
I thought about this and if she wasn't Maggie's daughter that meant the real baby is out there somewhere. And we'd go through this again! So I'm ok with leaving it.
Excellent point! Summer can join Melissa and Sarah in Maggie's Forgotten Children's Club. Of course, we should be so lucky. Mags will be crying and reminiscing over her insta-daughter for months. ^o)

I like the idea of a lot of people working together. Not the DiMera Kiriakas fued though. Everything we're hearing about the new team sounds like a retread of other stories Dena's told.

Hoping we get some newer stuff leaking out soon

And who wants to see more Victor and Maggie?

And there's two Dimeras left and Chad is barely one to begin with so is it going to be Andre and Kate arguing with Victor and Maggie and victor's assorted hangers-on?
Only two Dimeras left until a thought-to-be-deceased family member shows up unexpectedly and shocks the entire town of Salem, but no one more so than Andre. ;)

Is Roman going to get his lady back? :wub2:
I would need Wayne Northrop to be back in the role before that happens.
I agree about needing Wayne back, but I have to admit that the flirtation between JT's Roman and Anna during her last stint was pretty damn cute. Anna had interactions with Chris back in the day, so it could work.

Of course, this is largely because Leann is priceless and could create chemistry with a cinder block. ;)

Nice anvil with Theresa threatening to kill Summer. I guess that's probably how Summer will exit. And Maggie will cry. And cry. And cry. And cry. And cry...

I think we're very, very lucky to have Freddie Smith back on contract. His portrayal of Sonny is so appealing. BUT, I want to see additional, deeper layers to the character now that he's free of Will. Sadly, I don't think the current writers have that capability.

This was Alex before he turned to the darkside working for Stefano. He was such a douche, but always tempered with enough humor to make the character ... lovable! QR was talented enough to create chemistry with everyone, but I particularly loved him with Leann Hunley and Jane Windsor (Emma).

I always thought Lanna Saunders was so beautiful.

Casting call for 3 roles in 2017...
Jul 26 2016, 10:31 AM
It's funny that they usually say they want a strong actor for the U-5's but for the contract roles the main criteria listed is "gorgeous."
Lol! And as we've seen, being a "strong actor" isn't necessarily a qualifier for securing a contract role. I'll refrain from naming any names. ;)

This casting call thread reminded me there was a call for a male double a while back. Anyone have that one? It was for a male, dark hair. Should air somewhat soonish or in the fall.

Was it this one?
Interview Dates: Week of 4/18
Shoot/Start Date: 5/4
Pay Rate: SAG/AFTRA U5 scale + 10%
Info: Seeking an actor who will be mistaken for another actor from behind. Caucasian male 32-46, with brown to dark brown, MEDIUM length, straight hair. You must be 6'0 tall, around 205 lbs and muscular. His jacket is a 46 regular. Please do not submit unless you fit these specs.
Edit To Add that I found it on Jason's post at http://daytimeroyaltyonline.com/topic/9280213/1/
46 regular is a very large guy and doesn't fit anyone currently in the cast.

Sean Douglas is a big guy. Could Vargas be getting out of prison? Pretty please... :pray:

Tanna :wub:
I truly hope against hope that Leann is put on contract this time and HEAVILY featured in storyline. She's just too good to languish as a supporting player. At the very least, this had better be more than just a quick guest shot!

Hell, I'd say put LK on recurring, since Kate is so played out, and give LH a contract.

I'm excited to see Anna coming back. I've been waiting for the news of her return ever since TP basically spoiled it a few months ago. LH is looking gorgeous.

Did she and Andre ever mix it up or was she only ever with Tony?

Oh yeah, she mixed it up with Andre way back in the day. In fact, she was sleeping with Andre when he was masquerading as Tony during the Salem Slasher storyline. Renee was killed because she immediately knew he wasn't Tony, but Anna was clueless, even when she was having sex with him. :blulaugh:

Ken Corday interview. Leann Hunley return. Other spoilers.

It will be good to see Anna again. I wonder if she and Andre will recognize each other. :poof:
If we're going to see Anna I want to see Tony...
A while back, Thaao responded to a Tweet asking if we'd see Tony again by saying "soon." So unless he was blowing smoke, which he has been known to do, we may get a Tony/Anna redux.

Maybe Anna will return and realize that Andre is really a mentally ill Tony. :shrug:

I still can't stomach Andre because he's a cold-blooded serial killer who should not be walking free because of a "gubernatorial pardon." GMAFB

Congratulations, Patrika!!

"Theresa is asleep on the couch dreaming about her last encounter with Emma where Emma asked if she was sure she wasn't too tired to take Tate to the park."

Every time I see these references to Emma I think about Shane's late wife, the fabulous uber-bitch Emma Donovan Marshall.
Hey, that's it. Maybe Emma isn't really dead and she kidnapped Tate just like she did to his Uncle Andrew all those years ago! :drunk:

I was not a fan of the Max character, but I recently caught a few scenes of Darrin Brooks on B&B, and he was really appealing. I also find him quite handsome. I think I could handle him returning as Max someday.

I can't believe they hire people and don't know what to do with them. Why is it even allowed?
Could this be the way Josh Griffith operates? We know he was on set a lot, watching the actors work. Maybe he was waiting to get inspired by the actors to craft stories for them?
If he was so observant of these actors, then why is Vivian still playing CIARA? She is not improving at all and needs to be replaced. Her scenes with Chad are torture to watch, and even with Hope or Chase she is no better. How much time are they going to give her?? She ruins every scene she is in IMO.
When Vivian was hired, she should have been shown scenes of Lauren Boles' portrayal of Ciara, and told to conceptualize what she would be like as a 17-year-old. What would this engaging, crafty, "wise beyond her years" little girl have grown up to be like? It also wouldn't have hurt for her to watch some of Kristian's early scenes as Hope. Her acting was still raw, but she played Hope with gusto and appeal.

Acting is about creating energy and REacting to your scene partners. VJ just hasn't been able to do that. I was willing to cut her some slack, but she's not improving.

What is it with ABC actors and not being able to stick on this show?
I personally thought Melissa Archer stuck just fine. She just seemed like she belonged. It was that awful story they stuck her in that ruined it.
I agree! Melissa was a great addition to the cast. The writers just failed to create any substantial backstory for Serena and didn't integrate her into the cast well. Let's face it, they could have played out the same story of Serena's affair with Eric in Africa, the ridiculous elephant, the blood diamonds, etc., and the character could have still have had other ties to the canvas. If she had been Sarah Horton (as a "bad girl" no less), there would be all that history in her family, and once that ludicrous storyline wrapped, there would be more to do with her. Plus as a legacy character, her affair with Eric and the triangle with Nicole would have had higher stakes, and we may have CARED more.

Talented actors like Melissa Archer will continue to be wasted as long as we have a revolving door of writers who have absolutely no creative vision whatsoever.

John-Paul Lavoisier OUT at Days!
Sarah Joy Brown, Melissa Archer, now JPL. The show has taken some decent actors who were big on ABC soaps and not made use of their talents at all. :shrug:
