On stage...

Marj Dusay quickly forgiven

Last year in the soap All My Children, Vanessa Bennett Courtlandt, the character played by Marj Dusay, killed Paolo Caselli, played by Joseph Barbara. Would we have to expect after that for resentment between the two actors ? Not at all, since they have both agreed to reunite on the shooting of the film Pride and Loyalty which has begun a few weeks ago in the United States. It is the fourth film of Marj Dusay (3rd Pamela Conrad) since her departure from Santa Barbara in 1988 and her furtive reappearance in 1991...

Signy Coleman plays the secret agents

She had already played the partner of Byers, Frohike and Langly in two episodes of The X-Files. It was normal that she could be found in The Lone Gunmen, the spin-off of  X-Files, centered around these three whimsical characters of the show. Signy Coleman (Celeste DiNapoli in Santa Barbara) will play again the character of Suzanne Modeski in several episodes of the show which has begun on last 04 March on Fox.

Variation on a same topic

If the show Cursed - aired since October 2000 on NBC - has changed of name during the season to become The Weber Show, John O' Hurley (2nd Stephen Slade in Santa Barbara) has well kept his semi-recurring role of Bill Erlicht.

Téa Leoni goes to New York

The ex-Lisa DiNapoli in Santa Barbara will begin soon the shooting of the new Woody Allen movie... in New York (what more surprising for Woody Allen ?!) ! For the moment, and as usually, Allen left filtered neither the subject nor the title of the film, but it is even known that Téa has the honor to play the wife of the character played by Woody Allen himself ! At their sides one also finds Debra Messing (Will & Grace), Tiffani-Amber Thiessen (Saved by the Bell, Beverly Hills 90210) and Treat Williams. The release is planned for the next autumn in the United States and in France.

On scene In project
Stephen Nichols on scene

Passed from Santa Barbara (where he played Dr. Skyler Gates at the end of 1992) to General Hospital in 1996, Stephen Nichols did not have much time these last years to devote himself to his great passion : theatre. The thing is repaired thanks to the complicity of two other actors of the soap, John Ingle (Edward) and Leslie Charleson (Monica), who has celebrated at the beginning of March the opening of the festival of the arts of Los Angeles Media and Education Center. The occasion for many soap actors to go up on scene and to play some great scenes of the theatrical repertory, Stephen Nichols first. There is one for who one does not worry about the possible reconversion !...

Tamlyn Tomita plays the household breaker !

It is only spring and already the American networks work on the new shows of the season 2001-2002. Tamlyn Tomita (Ming Li in Santa Barbara) could become one of the main characters of a show conceived by John Herzfeld for CBS. In this project without title for the moment, Tamlyn would play a young nurse with who falls in love a famous doctor of sports (Angus MacFadyen). His wife, played by Lauren Holly (Picket Fences, Chicago Hope), then calls upon the service of a private investigator to prove that her husband betrays her.

This new show would be the occasion for Tamlyn Tomita to possibly know success again, after the relative commercial failure of her cinematographic career since the cancellation of the show Burning Zone in 1997.
