Wow that is insane that the show is taping 5 to 6 weeks in advance....is it not usually more like 3 to 4 weeks in advance?
A few years ago, DOOL re-configured their taping schedules (to save $$$) and much of the program is taped way in advance. That often explains why certain actors are heavily played and others are missing. There are probably a few experts out there with inside info, but I recall the actors saying that they loved the new schedules since they often had 1-2 week breaks, which were a nice trade-off for the long hours on "tape days". I also recall hearing that they rarely rehearse lines onstage and do re-takes only when its a major messup. (And frankly, with the extremely short scenes we get in 2009, very few probably require re-shoots).

Holy smoke! I seriously can't tell if that is Nadia or Lindsay. I never realized they were so similar!
Thanks for sharing!

It's weird. It looks like Lindsay with Nadia's hair. I can't believe Nadia would ever cover up the girls so thorougly...so I'm going with Lindsay. :lol:

^LOL! That's a way to figure it out! No boobs and track suit = Lindsay.

Although if LH got new boobs, maybe they could write it as Arianna is Chloe's long lost twin sister! :) Maybe that is why Brady is attracted to her...she reminds him of Chloe. :)

Love Salem at Christmastime. On a side note, I hope that's not Lindsey Hartley's outfit for actual scenes. That sweatsuit is hideous!
Isn't that Nadia Bjorlin?
Yes it is. Drew what you smoking? LOL
It's Lindsay (Nadia said it was on her twitter).
Thank you! Amello, you just worry about what you're smoking over there. And go comment today's episode bitch! :wave:

I wish they would bring fired couples back for Christmas time, but guess it's too much asked for Corday. I'd love to see John&Marlena and Steve&Kayla joining the celebration. Doug and Julie will most probably be there anyways.

I don't think you can blame Corday for that. I doubt most actors would return for just a few episodes like that.

Just bumping this thread to say that the Christmas episode was taped a few days ago (confirmed by Alison Sweeney and Crystal Chappell on Twitter) and Crystal just revealed that her sons are at the studio today taping holiday scenes at the hospital.

Looks like the annual reading of the Christmas Story will continue this year. :)

Wow, that's much earlier than normal. They used to tape it immediately before the Thanksgiving break.

Yeah, it's crazy how far ahead they are with the taping schedule. That's why the show looks like shit these days. They don't pay attention to the quality. They just rush it along to try and stay ahead of the schedule.

Wonder who will get the honor of reading the story this year? Someone somewhere mentioned Lucas, but that was just speculation.
Doug and Julie are definitely supposed to be coming back.

Probably Dr. Sperm.

You would think taping so far in advance gives everyone more time to edit the show and make it look great. Unfortunately, that doesn't always happen.

I expect Chloe to read the story this year, given she's connected to Daniel and had that long stay at the hospital this year.

Just thought of something. You don't think they'll give Melanie and Mia an honorary ball on the Horton Christmas tree do you?

Dreaming of a Melanie-free Days

I don't know about Mia, but Melanie I can definitely see, since Maggie has repeatedly said she "adores" her and she's romantically involved with Nathan--at least, that's the impression I get but I haven't watched in a little while and I often FF Melanie anyway.
