Eileen Davidson does round trips


Some soap-opera actresses have two houses : it is the case of Eileen Davidson (ex-Kelly Capwell) who, for several years, does regularly round trips between The Young and the Restless and Days of our Lives.
After having left the first one in May 2012 (see the News of 05/09/2012), she had joined the second soap a few weeks later, before leaving it again in July 2013 (see the News of 08/05/2013). Since then, she appeared in a episodic way in both soaps, every time the time of one or a few episodes.
Now today the actress confirmed her official return in
The Young and the Restless on CBS for a long-term contract. She will resume the part of Ashley Abbott in early September, after her last appearance in Days of our Lives to be aired on NBC.

Also let us specify that Eileen Davidson was nominated in the outstanding lead actress category for Days of our Lives at the next Daytime Emmy awards ceremony, which will be held on June 22 at the Beverly Hilton. It will be also the first time for thirty years that the ceremony will not be broadcast on the American television.

Homage : Phyllis Frelich (1944-2014)


In 1988, she was Sister Sarah, the deaf-mute sister who helped Mason Capwell to find the real murderer of Dr. Mark McCormick at the Goletta convent. Phyllis Frelich died on Thursday, April 10.
Born of deaf parents, in the middle of a
family of ten children also all deaf, Phyllis Frelich had succeeded in becoming a talented and recognized actress in spite of her handicap. In 1980, she explodes in the play Children of a Lesser God, which will then be adapted to the cinema with Marlee Matlin. From then on, she will not stop playing anymore, between theater, cinema and television, and will even found the theater company The National Theater of the Deaf.
Married for a while to set designer Robert Steinberg, she was a mother of two children, both able to hear.
