While looking for Guiding Light information, I sometimes find things that I think are of interest relating to other soaps. This collection of Odds and Ends related to various soaps that someone may want to know some time. Look for another odds and ends post soon.
One of the things I like to share are the locations where soaps were actually shot. Although the name Esperanza Resort was a bit spot on for the Hope-Liam-Thomas-Steffy storyline on The Bold and the Beautiful, turns out it really was the name of the place. The resort is in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and rooms start at $500 a night. Find a photo and information in the Jan. 28, 2013 issue of CBS Soaps in Depth.
Ronn Moss is interviewed about leaving his iconic role of Ridge Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful in the October 29, 2012 issue of Soap Opera Digest.
Get a report on Dayzee and Marcus Forrester’s wedding from The Bold and the Beautiful complete with photos and the full words for vows in the Jan. 28, 2013 issue of CBS Soaps in Depth.
Scott Bryce (the first and best Craig Montgomery on As the World Turns) has been busy on both sides of the camera since he left the show for the second time. Most recently he’s produced two episodes based on Civil War stories for Connecticut Public Television’s Young American Heroes series. His episodes are “The Elisha Stockwell Story” and “The Sybil Ludington Story.” If you’d like to see them be sure to tell your own PBS station. Find the full list in the Q&A in the Oct. 29, 2012 issue of Soap Opera Digest.

Just because if there was a Western/Sci Fi soap it would be Firefly. (OK because I’m doing this and I love it.)
Joshua Morrow (Nick Newman) welcomed former General Hospital star Steve Burton with an Entertainment Tonight video. Especially watch for the portico where Caroline II first showed up on The Bold and the Beautiful in the infamous all the guys with their tongues hanging out scene and see them watching Y&R in wardrobe toward the end of the video.
CBS Daytime recently tweeted a lovely photo of Villy.
