Why give a role to someone like Martha when they could give it to some talentless underwear model? :hmmph:

It really IS a heartbreaker! I think of her early years on ATWT and the way she made you care about this "poor little rich girl" and how she made Rose a COMPLETELY different person! It's a crime that she's out of work!

Nelson, I know this is satire, but you should be hung by the b***s for even suggesting JER return to Days.

Ahh, just messing with you. Nice job!!!

It is a shame that some of the actors leave a soap and are hired the next day. And then you have real talents like Julia Barr, Martha Byrne, and Martha Madison and nothing. Or even Renee Elise Goldberry.

I know with Julia Barr and Martha Byrne - price has to be a big thing. but it is still sad that there is no place for them in the soap world.

And you know that age plays in there with both of them too. The writers just don't want to write for characters that age anymore.

Martha would make a spectacular replacement for Beth Ehlers at GL but I doubt she would work for P&G again.

Classic Soap Fan

What's funny is that Martha Byrne is *younger* than Beth Ehlers. Byrne is only 38 (will be 39 in Dec.) while Ehlers just turned 40. Byrne is also actually a full year younger than Noelle Beck. One thing to keep in mind about hiring is that some performers don't even try for another soap once they leave their long running roles (at least not right away). REG, I believe, has been very busy with stage work. I think she's currently on Broadway as part of the final cast of Rent. Some performers simply change course with their lives and start on entirely different careers. Maybe Byrne hasn't actively sought out another role and is focusing on her music career. Just because *we* think they should be on another show doesn't always necessarily mean *they* want to be on another show. Just playing devil's advocate and throwing that out there. lol
