AS THE WORLD TURNS
AS THE WORLD TURNS celebrated its 30th anniversary in 1986 and brought back many former cast members for the occaision. Viewers were delighted to see such stars as Rosemary Prinz (Penny Hughes), James Douglas (Grant Colman) and Marie Masters (Susan Stewart) reunited. On the show, the family gathered to celebrate the 50th wedding anniversary of Chris and Nancy Hughes (Don MacLaughlin and Helen Wagner). We didn't know then how important this plot device would be because Don MacLaughlin died a few months later, and these anniversary episodes gave ATWT's veteran viewers a chance to reminisce with characters they've known for a lifetime. The entire affair was handled with ATWT's characteristic warmth and class.
