BIGGEST WASTE OF TALENT|
TAYLOR MILLER (SALLY EWING, ANOTHER WORLD)
She was brought on with much fanfare. Big things were promised to Taylor Miller, who, after a stint doing night-time TV in California, returned to daytime to take over the role of ANOTHER WORLD's Sally Frame. Once a popular, well-defined character with a strong story line, Sally Ewing floated around Bay City without direction. Most days, there wasn't any reason for her to be there. And Taylor Miller, who had wowed audiences as ALL MY CHILDREN's Nina Cortlandt, was forced to act in scenes and say lines that lacked substance and meaning. Finally, after a year of making do in the meager role, Taylor chose not to renew her contract. As for Sally, she was killed off following a suspicious car accident. ANOTHER WORLD squandered not only a fine actress's talent, but it also lost a once viable character. What a waste.
