|The 30th Daytime Emmy awards|
Nancy faces Eileen and Kim
There will have sport challenges at the 30th Daytime Emmy awards on next May 16. The ceremony, which rewards every year the daytime soap-operas teams, will indeed see facing three former stars of Santa Barbara in the very coveted category of the best outstanding lead actress : I named Nancy Lee Grahn (for General Hospital), Eileen Davidson (for The Young and the Restless) and Kim Zimmer (for Guiding Light).
Eileen Davidson has already declared that she will miss the delivery of the trophy, because her childbirth to come is planned for the day after the ceremony (see the News of December) ! She will thus stay at home, in Los Angeles, to follow the event on television.
No question of making here some favouritism for a particular actress, but all real Santa Barbara fan has inevitably his preference... Results on May 16 on ABC. And let the best one gain (good luck Nancy !)... ;-)
|On the American television||Santa Barbara digest|
Just like Ally Walker (see the News of December), the big return of Julia Campbell (ex-Courtney Capwell) on American television will have not taken place this season. Her project of show, The Funkhousers (see the News of September), whose pilot has however been shot, did not seduced the television networks and thus will not see the day.
To note in the bad news chapter, the cancellation last February of the new show of Ian Abercrombie (ex-Philip), Birds of Prey, after only 13 episodes (see the News of September).
heading making the history of a setting
Capwell boathouse is one of the most beautiful settings of Santa
Barbara : it arrived in n°400 in March 1986. It was used as a
place for acting for Kirk and Gina to try to murder Eden. Kirk and Gina
carefully repeat the murder but the events turn badly, Gina does not
have the courage to kill Eden. She falls into the basin and drowns
herself. Eden manages to escape, wounded, and leaves by car (she has an
accident and loses her child). In the following episodes, Cruz will
begin his investigations. Then, the hangar will be used as an ornament
setting for scenes between Ted and Hayley for example.

Tomita fights against danger
If she fights againt danger in her regular roles in 24 and JAG since this re-opening 2002 (see the News of December), Tamlyn Tomita (ex-Ming Li) does it also in her roles on cinema. She will be in the heart of the action of Gaijin 2, awaited on the American screens this year, in which she plays the main role, that of Maria Yamashita Salinas. Between two appearances in her TV shows, Tamlyn finished at the beginning of this year the shooting of The Day After Tomorrow, big action-movie directed by the specialist of the kind, Roland Emmerich. In the role of Janet, she shares the action with Dennis Quaid, straid in a world threatened by a general return to the glacial era. Release envisaged in May 2004 in the United States...
