APRIL, THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL
FLYNN, ONE LIFE TO LIVE
ROSE, AS THE WORLD TURNS
What happens when you put three able actors into three twin roles? Triple the irritation, we're sorry to say.
B&B's April (Adrienne Frantz), the trashy rocker with a cornpone drawl, only served to remind us how much we missed diluted look-alike Amber's original sass. OLTL's Trevor St. John (Walker/Todd) was on his way to success in a part that no one thought was recastable, but went too far with flamboyant Flynn, who flounced about like SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE's Dieter from SPROCKETS. And ATWT's Rose, whose spunkiness and flair once helped Martha Byrne win a second Emmy, became so gratingly indecisive that we had to wonder what all the romantic fuss over her was about.
But the twin triumvirate's biggest victims were Amber, Walker and Lily, who sacrificed a bit of themselves so we could see double - and just ended up making everyone a little nauseated.
