Lawrence Saint-Victor (Remy Boudreau) answered a round up question in the Oct. 21, 2013 issue of Soap Opera Digest about his first love scene. This was the Inside the Light episode where Alan Spaulding had supposedly come up with a magic, temporary memory eraser based on a novel by Henry “Coop” Cooper. There were several unlikely new couples of various kinds chemistry tested during the episode. My favorite was that Alan and Beth assumed they were father and daughter, this was when Alan wanted her to marry him. Then afterward it never happened.
“My [first] love scene on camera might be one of the most uncomfortable love scenes in daytime history. It was [on Guiding Light] in an episode where it was our first time experimenting heavily with the single-camera thing. It was a stand-alone episode where a lot of people lose their memory, and Remy and Lizzie, played by Emme Rylan [Lizzie Spaulding], wake up and they don’t know who each other is, but they’re in the bathroom and she wakes up with her head on his leg while his pants are down. There were no covers, no beds. I’m not going to tell who said this, but a producer on set that day was like, ‘This isn’t lovemaking, you’re *******’ and we’re like, ‘Oh, snap [laughs].’ And then, my grandma and little cousins were watching [when the episode aired]! They didn’t know what was coming up, and then it was like – BOOM!”

Terrell Tilford (David Grant #3, brother to Gilly, son of hospital administrator Charles, friend to Bridget, coupled with Vicky Spaulding) read a feature about his new role on The Young and the Restless in the June 9, 2014 issue of Soap Opera Digest.

Jane Elliot (Carrie Marler, Ross’ beloved wife who went crazy) got a wardrobe revamp by former Guiding Light and current General Hospital costume designer Shawn Reeves. He said that in New York there is a whole range of clothing stores for a range of types and styles, but not so in LA. “In LA, it’s a little more specific. Obviously, the weather is more conducive to wearing lighter clothes. It’s a different look. So when it comes to a character like Tracy, that kind of person doesn’t really exist in Los Angeles anymore, so buying clothes for her is a little more challenging because the stores just don’t really carry her type of stuff, and if they do, it’s just prohibitively expensive and I can’t afford it in my budget. So it’s easier for me to go to one of the wonderful fabric stores in LA, buy the appropriate fabric and havee Maki, my stiticher, make these beautiful clothes for me. She made some wonderful new jackets for Tracy and other new pieces for her closet.” Read the rest of the story in the Oct. 14, 2013 issue of Soap Opera Digest.

Daniel Cosgrove (Bill Lewis #4, part of the wonderful Bizzie pairing) was the subject of a feature article about his new role on Days of Our Lives in the March 3, 2014 issue of Soap Opera Digest.

And we had three or four years where we were apart and together, apart and together – and doing evil things together! Because she was evil when she came on the show too….She was exactly like [our daughter] Dinah. And very good at it, too. We had great fun upsetting everybody!”  Find more in CBS Soaps in Depth.

And a new video that would be funny (who isn’t frustrated by the fact that women’s Halloween costumes in the VAST majority of stores would be more at home in a sex shop than a candy aisle), except for the completely pointless and needless foul language that keeps pulling you out of the storyline.

Not a lot of what he’s doing now will be unfamiliar to those who regularly read these round ups, but it’s a nice article with photos and the best news is it sounds like we haven’t seen the last of Steamboat after all. He’s also excited about the Soap Classics release, so hopefully he will join a tweet along soon.

My family members have heard so much about him because he’s always supportive and normal and real and always gives me wonderful advice. They all know that I think he’s awesome and I don’t think they believe me because Alan is such a jerk on the show! People are always shocked when I tell them how sweet he is.”
