Genie Francis off-contract: update post #106

Thanks for the explanation.

I realize that Wes Ramsey was on Guiding Light for 8 years,

but still ...
it sure seems like he was hired at GH because he is LW's boyfriend.
I went back and found the interview because I didn't want to misquote him. WR said he and FV got along really well and both hoped they'd work together if the right part came along. It happened a couple of months later, he auditioned and got the part.

So, the role wasn't just handed to him but I'm sure the fact that he's LW's boyfriend helped.

Is that a reference to Laura Wright's boyfriend Wes Ramsey (he plays Peter August) being a recent hire -- who was on contract as soon as he was hired?

In WR's interview in S O D when he joined GH, he said he met FV at the parking lot one day by accident, when he dropped off LW. FV liked him and asked him if he wanted to join the show.

Y&R: January Discussion
I was a big JT/Victoria fan in 2006-7 but they got boring after they got married. It was probably the writing but IMO they lost the spark and the chemistry after Brad was out of the picture.

They definitely have that back now, though! I know Thad is not staying so I'm going to enjoy it for as long as I can. :wub:
