Watching Margo's rape storyline for the first time. I'm blown away by this story.

For fans of As The World Turns, not sure if you were aware but in the Netherlands ATWT has a huge following (they were two years behind the US broadcast). A three weeks ago the last episode aired but they invited some of the cast members for a fan farewell event in February. Cast members in attendance included Trent Dawson (Henry Coleman), Terri Conn (Katie Snyder), Austin Peck (Brad Snyder), Grayson McCouch (Dusty Donovan), Jon Hensley (Holden Snyder) and Martha Byrne (ex-Lily Snyder).

If interested, there lot of the clips are posted on Youtube from the event. I'd say the highlight of the event was Martha Byrne (Lily) singing to Jon Hensley (Holden) - and they kiss.

Bitches be crazy! Haters are gonna hate!

One of my favorite scenes bc of Julia & the score that sets the mood.

"A coma, Barbara!? Come up w/ something a little more original. How about a hole opened up & James fell into the center of the earth" :lol: :lol:

"Paul saved James? Right, & I suppose Santa has a toyshop up at the North Pole, huh?" :lol: :lol:

Julia cracks me up!

This is the conclusion of the boathouse s/l leading to the quicksand. Interesting fact is that the quicksand was just water & oatmeal.

I LOVED the Julia & Carly scenes. Soooo soapy! :popcorn: :popcorn:

My rendition of the original closing theme for As the World Turns.

Yes, Paul's birth took place off screen and came out when James appeared in 1980. Barbara reappeared in Oakdale in 1978 and was portrayed as a heroine from 1980-85. I never quite bought her character change, which occurred when she was a thorn in the Brian-Shannon relationship and tried to seduce Tom from Margo to pay Margo back for her affair w/ James.

I don't have cable, so I've been catching up with season 1 Homeland on DVD, and I was happy to see Trent Dawson (Henry Coleman) appear in the episode titled Representative Brody. He's just in one short scene, but he's central to it and he's working with Claire Danes and Mandy Patinkin. Nice to see him on such a prestigious show.

Hey there everyone..I just thought I'd bump up this thread to say that I love(d) ATWT and I miss it terribly! It's the only soap I've ever watched. I love Tamara Tunie! She is/was Jessica. I loved her & Duncan until they messed that up then I hated him after that. Tamara's an amazing actress. I also loved Tom & Margo as well (Ellen & Scott's Tom & Margo) I hated that they re-casted Jessica though, but I understand why they did.

Any older ATWT fans who have a favorite actor/actress in either original or recast character?

Alison: Jessica Dunphy or Marnie Schulenburg
Betsy: Meg Ryan or Lindsay Frost
Bonnie: Napiera Danielle Groves or Chauntee Schuler
Brad: Nick Kokotakis, John Loprieno or Austin Peck
Caleb: Michael David Morrison or Graham Winton
Casey: Zach Roerig or Billy Magnussen
Connor: Allyson Rice-Taylor or Susan Batten
Craig: Scott Bryce, Hunt Block, Jeffrey Meek or Jon Lindstrom
Dusty: Brian Bloom or Grayson McCouch
Emily: Melanie Smith or Kelley Menighan Hensley
Frannie: Julianne Moore or Mary Ellen Stuart
Jennifer: Kim Onasch or Jennifer Ferrin
Jessica: Tamara Tunie or Joanna Rhinehart
Lily: Lucy Deakins, Martha Byrne, Heather Rattray or Noelle Beck
Lucy: Peyton List or Spencer Grammer
Margo: Margaret Colin, Hillary B. Smith, Ellen Dolan or Glynnis O'Connor
Meg: Jennifer Ashe or Marie Wilson
Nikki: Jordana Brewster or McKenzie Satterthwaite
Paul: Andrew Kavovit, Scott Holroyd or Roger Howarth
Rosanna: Yvonne Perry or Cady McClain
Sabrina: Julianne Moore or Claire Beckham
Samantha: Brooke Alexander or Sherri Alexander
Sierra: Finn Carter or Mary Beth Evans
Tom: Justin Deas, Gregg Marx or Scott Holmes
For me it's as follows:

Tamara Tunie (because as they say there's nothing better than the original)

Bonnie (definitely Napiera (she & Tamara had the most natural chemistry)

Fans of As The World Turns, I'm getting ready to post an extensive cast list spanning the 54 years it was on the air at SON Community. There is a list of "Questionable characters" over in the thread. If anyone knows if any of those characters were never seen on the show, please let me know here or there(if you belong). I'm Slick Jones there, Nigel Pennysmith here. I appreciate anyone's help with this endeavor, as I have hundreds of cast members I'll be putting up. Thanks for your time.

Classic Soap Fan

Betsy von Furstenberg, who played Lisa McColl for a couple of years in the early 80s during the absence of Eileen Fulton, has died.


Betsy von Furstenberg, a glamorous German-born baroness who made her debut in the movies and on the Broadway stage in the early 1950s as a teenager and later reinvented herself as a television actress, writer and philanthropist, died on April 21 at her home in Manhattan. She was 83.

The cause was complications of Alzheimer’s disease, said her son, Glyn Vincent.

Born in a castle in Westphalia, Ms. von Furstenberg left Germany with her parents for New York before World War II. She was tutored by the choreographer Anton Dolin when she was 4 and performed with American Ballet Theater when she was 7.

While attending the Hewitt School in Manhattan, she began modeling at 14 and embarked with her mother on a globe-girdling career that led to a role in an Italian film called “Women Without Names,” about post-World War II internees. That projected her onto the cover of Look magazine, photographed by Stanley Kubrick, for an article titled “Working Debutante.”

In 1951, she made her Broadway debut in Philip Barry’s “Second Threshold,” which earned her a spot on the cover of Life magazine (accompanied by a photograph inside of her stage-door mother) as “the most promising young actress of the year.” Brooks Atkinson wrote in The New York Times, more guardedly, that her part, like those of the rest of the supporting cast, was “agreeably played.”

She went on to star or co-star in “Oh, Men! Oh, Women!,” “The Chalk Garden,” “Nature’s Way,” “Mary, Mary” and, in 1970, Neil Simon’s “The Gingerbread Lady,” for which Walter Kerr of The Times lauded her “brusque, dry, exquisitely enameled performance as a fading beauty.”

Ms. von Furstenberg also appeared on television, on “Alfred Hitchcock Presents,” “Have Gun — Will Travel” and “Playhouse 90,” among other series; on variety shows like Ed Sullivan’s “Toast of the Town” and “The Johnny Carson Show”; and on the soap opera “As the World Turns.”

“She often played mischievous, flirty or rebellious young women,” her son said, “and was noted in the society columns for her naughty behavior offstage as well.”

Elizabeth Caroline Maria Agatha Felicitas Therese Freiin von Furstenberg-Hedringen was born in Arnsberg, Germany, near Cologne, on Aug. 16, 1931. Her father, Franz-Egon, was a count. Her mother, the former Elizabeth Foster-Johnson, an American from Memphis whom the count met on a vacation, was devoted to her daughter’s career.

Besides her son, Ms. von Furstenberg is survived by a daughter, Gay Caroline Gerry; two grandchildren; and a half brother, Count Egon von Furstenberg. Her first marriage, to Guy Vincent, ended in divorce; her second, to John J. Reynolds, lasted until his death in 1994.

She continued to perform onstage into the 1980s and was active in supporting the Theater for the New City and Young Concert Artists.

She also began writing, contributing articles and columns to various publications and, in 1988, publishing a novel, “Mirror, Mirror,” about an heiress who befriends her servant’s daughter and pursues love and ambition among Europe’s glitterati.

In an essay on the front of the Arts & Leisure section of The Times in September 1972, Ms. von Furstenberg wrote that all the world was theater, even for actors offstage.

“For myself, even when I’m working and have an audience to look forward to every night, I still find I perform better at home when there’s an eye — preferably approving — to mark my progress as a cook, mother, flower arranger, etc.,” she explained.

“One of the most frustrating drawbacks of being an actor-parent,” she wrote, “is to have your children accuse you of acting when you’re being perfectly sincere.”[/spoiler]

Just wanted to add that I watched an episode of Dr. Kildare on dvd today and saw Kathryn Hays playing a blind woman who is content to stay in her home and only went somewhere on someone's arm to guide her.Her father who had been out of her life for years shows up . She has a chance to get her sight restored but refuses because she had cornea transplants before but failed. In the end her father wills her his before he dies.
Kathryn really gave an emmy deserving performance.
The episode was An Island is a Peacock ( season 2 1962)it also guest starred Leonard Nimoy
