Odds and Ends 46

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.

Check out a long profile in the March 23, 2015 issue of Soap Opera Digest about the uneven SORAS-ing of soap kids across the show. The profile features the SORASed kids of General Hospital, Days of Our Lives, The Bold and the Beautiful, and The Young and the Restless.

Check out the photos from the gala that was held in honor of Days of Our Lives 50th Anniversary in the November 30, 2015 issue of Soap Opera Digest. There are all sorts of cast members past and present, many of whom were on other soaps as well.

In the spring 2016 “season” of Castle an episode is going to reunite the star of the show Nathan Fillion (who got his big start as Joey on One Life to Live) with several other former OLTLers. Look for Kassie DePalva (Blair), Tuc Watkins (David), and Darlene Vogel (Melanie). Read more about it in the November 30, 2015 issue of Soap Opera Digest.

The 2015 The Bold and the Beautiful fan meet and greet was held on the actual sets this year which seems utterly amazing. See photos and read more in the October 5, 2015 issue of CBS Soaps in Depth.

Tom Lind (Spencer Publication’s pilot Michael, The Bold and the Beautiful) is now recurring in the role. However, his first time on the soap was as the pilot that crashed Thomas and Brooke (Boinkberry story). That pilot died, but Lind returned. He’s quoted as saying “Um, I saw the episode that had a memorial for my character. Isn’t he dead? But someone at the show told me, ‘In soap operas twins aren’t uncommon.'” Read more in the November 2, 2015 issue of CBS Soaps in Depth.

Camryn Grimes (Cassie Newman now Mariah on The Young and the Restless) made her first TV appearance on the military drama JAG.  Read about in the November 2, 2015 issue of CBS Soaps in Depth. Her birthday is January 7.

See photos of behind the scenes (and on screen dresses) from General Hospital‘s 2015 Nurse’s Ball in the May 25, 2015 issue of May 25, 2015 issue of Soap Opera Digest.

Kristen Alderson (ex-Starr/Kiki, GH) confirmed on Twitter that she and Chad Duell (Michael, GH) who were a long time real life couple have split. I’m sorry that they did, but kudos to them having been such a prominent social media couple letting fans know and not just leave them hanging.
