Odds and Ends 41

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.

Have reality shows learned what soaps have forgotten about excitement, glamor, and polish?

Beau Kazer who played Brock Reynolds on The Young and the Restless have passed on. Brock was the son of Kay Chancellor and one of her pre-Phillip Chancellor husbands aka the guy who really built or inherited everything that Kay slapped the Chancellor name on after she married him. Brock played heavily in the Kay-Phillip-Jill triangle including a short unconsummated marriage to Jill Foster Abbott. He was also the long lost father of Mac (Billy Abbott’s first love). Brock was often referred to as doing things like working with Habitat Humanity and returned periodically, most recently surrounding Kay’s death.

Heather Tom (Katie Logan Spencer on The Bold and the Beautiful) hosted this year’s Leading Ladies of Daytime Luncheon attended by Emmy nominated and previously nominated lead actress Emmy contenders. See photos in the Aug. 11, 2014 issue of CBS Soaps in Depth.

There is an interview with Michele Val Jean, a script writer for The Bold and the Beautiful. She talks about how she got started as a soap writer. She has previously worked on Santa Barbara, General Hospital, Port Charles, and Night Shift. Jean talks about the difficulty of finding writers who can do soaps (I’d suggest it’s in part because of they fishing in a limited pool), but it’s very interesting to read her take and the difficulty of writing soaps. Find it in the June 30, 2014 issue of Soap Opera Digest.

She has changed her hair color appearing with it both as a blond and brunette. Find a photo of the brunette version in the Aug. 11, 2014 issue of CBS Soaps in Depth.

In case in comes up again Sully aka Sullivan was one of Dylan’s men on The Young and the Restless. Sullivan was wounded during an attack and tried to push his weapon to Dylan. The movement caused Sullivan to be hit again and he died. This was part of Dylan’s PTS flashback backstory. Read a slightly longer version in the Aug. 11, 2014 issue of CBS Soaps in Depth.

Duncan Hursley grandson of General Hospital co-creator Frank Hursley (but not of co-creater Doris Hursley) only reunited with his grandfather in his later years. Hursley is an experienced actor and had previously put in a cameo for the 7,000th episode back in 1990. Reaching out to the show in 2013 led to this longer role. He played a mechanic with the characters of Patrick and Sam. Hursley also donated a framed photo of Frank and Doris Hursley since they didn’t still have one for display on the show. See a photo and more information in the June 30, 2014 issue of Soap Opera Digest.
