Tim, I'm with you on this one, too. I honestly think people are just pissed off about the cuts and these actors had the audacity of taking a job.
And, again, although I might not agree with THEM, there are people who like Melanie and Dr. Dan. This actress from AW probably still has her fans, possibly those former DAys viewers who also watched AW. (I did, but i just can't recall her name. I quit watching AW in the early 80's). Same with the John Callahan thing. Same with Tamera Braun. Same with the Passions guys.
And, after all, Bo, the new psychic, is a vet. :D And, what is a vet, anyway? Wouldn't the actors of these new characters (sans the Passion brothers) be considered vets?
When you look at it, here are the characters introduced in 1994, or before, which would be almost 15 years ago: (gotta love Jason47!)
Rank. Actor (Character) Tenure
1. Frances Reid (Alice Horton) 43 Years
3. Suzanne Rogers (Maggie Horton) 34 Years, 1 Month (contract)
5. Deidre Hall (Marlena Evans) 28 Years, 1 Month (contract)
6. Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie Williams) 26 Years, 9 Months
7. James Reynolds (Abe Carver) 25 Years, 10 Months (contract)
8. Bill Hayes (Doug Williams) 23 Years, 5 Months
9. Drake Hogestyn (John Black) 22 Years, 10 Months (contract)
10. Peggy McCay (Caroline Brady) 22 Years, 9 Months (contract)
13. John Aniston (Victor Kiriakis) 21 Years, 10 Months
14. Peter Reckell (Bo Brady) 19 Years (contract)
15. Kristian Alfonso (Hope Brady) 18 Years, 9 Months (contract)
16. Ron Leath (Henderson) 18 Years, 1 Month
20. Alison Sweeney (Sami Brady) 15 Years, 10 Months (contract)
21. Renee Jones (Lexie Carver) 15 Years, 4 Months (contract)
22. Bryan Dattilo (Lucas Roberts) 14 Years, 9 Months (contract)
Look at all these names who STILL show up on the show. Of these, look at the ones who have a contract currently. (Yes, I included the DH's in this)
The ones who have been on between 10-14 years:
25. Lauren Koslow (Kate Roberts) 12 Years, 10 Months
29. Josh Taylor (Roman Brady) 11 Years, 1 Month
31. Thaao Penghlis (Tony/Andre DiMera) 10 Years, 4 Months
33. Joseph Mascolo (Stefano DiMera) 9 Years, 7 Months
34. Josh Taylor (Chris Kositchek) 9 Years, 1 Month
Of all these, the latest rankings for November show that Kristian Alfonso and Peter Reckell were in the Top 10. For 2008:
1. Peter Reckell (Bo Brady) 150
4. Kristian Alfonso (Hope Brady) 140
*. Drake Hogestyn (John Black) 140
6. Deidre Hall (Marlena Evans Black-127/Samantha Evans-2) 127
*. Alison Sweeney (Sami Brady-119/Young Colleen Brady-1) 119
It might not be everyone's dream, but it's not like NO vets have been to the forefront this year.
