I can't believe that John Aniston story. JER really did have a short fuse for that kind of thing. He did seem to not like JA, MA, and TP. I wonder what Matt and Thaoo did to get on his bad side. Drake seemed to indicate that breaking the actor/character line or questioning what JER wrote was what did it so I'm guessing Matt and Thaoo must have done something like that to get the treatment they did.
I can. John Aniston, Thaao Penghlis, Matthew Ashford, notice a pattern here? And not just in the 90s but in 2003-2006 as well.
Oh, I know. I just can't believe he turned on John because of something like that and the fact that he basically eliminated Victor as an active member of the canvas that quickly was pretty surprising to me. That's what stunned me. I know all about those he disliked.

JER lived in his own world. He knew the actors as their characters and it seems like anything that broke that divide angered him because it made it difficult to write for them after that. Hence why Drake felt it was smart to stay as close to character as possible when he was around back then.
