Odds and Ends Five

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.

Christopher “Chip” Mayer died on July 23, 2011. Mayer came up through the soap world playing T.J. Daniels on Santa Barbara from 1987-1988. He was also married for 2 years¬† in the mid-1980s to Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott on The Young and the Restless). However, his best known role was as part of the pair of scab cousins (Coy and Vance Duke)¬† who tried to replace Bo and Luke during a contract dispute. Turned out The Dukes of Hazzard only worked with the originals.

Real Royalty in the form of Princess Theodora of Greece and Denmark appeared on The Bold and the Beautiful as Bill Spencer Jr.’s secretary in late 2011. Her Royal Highness has appeared in other TV and movie productions.

In 1986, General Hospital used Charleston, South Carolina, to double the small town of Laurelton.

In 1994, All My Children taped the Edmund and Maria’s wedding in Garden City, New York.

The Bold and the Beautiful aired a special episode with a collection of 20 real-life veterans from all wars. One of them was Jonathan Khan. Khan was in a military police unit. He works as an extra on other soaps. You’ll see him as a doctor on General Hospital and a paramedic on Days of Our Lives.

The Bold and the Beautiful went HD on September 7, 2011. Their makeup head, Christine Lai-Johnson, was asked about changes she had made because of the switch. Basically she said the fact that television screens were larger alone had already brought on most of the changes because pancake makeup was too obvious, but they were working on a lighter, more natural look especially on the men. Read the rest of it on the Oct. 18, 2011 issue of Soap Opera Digest.

Eric Forrester’s 1990 wedding to Brooke Logan, complete with hot air balloon and horse riding, was shot in and around Palm Springs, California on The Bold and the Beautiful.
