Eric Close the visitor

After the show Dark Skies, Eric Close (ex-Sawyer Walker) refinds the trouble and worrying universe of the aliens in the mini-series Taken, currently in production. Eric is in all the cases well surrounded, since the producer of this fifty years retrospective of alien presence on Earth is Steven Spielberg himself ! Eric plays John, one of these mysterious visitors who may secretly populate our planet. To discover on the American channel Sci-Fi Channel in December 2002...

Less chance on the other hand for Vincent Irizarry (ex-Dr. Scott Clark), at the ceremony of the Daytime Emmy awards on last 17 May (see the News of April). Nominated in the category of outstanding lead actor in a soap for his character of Dr. David Hayward in All My Children, Vincent was preceded by Peter Bergman (Jack Abbott in The Young and the Restless). Only former member of the cast of Santa Barbara to win an award : Crystal Chappell (ex-Jane Kingsley), in the category of outstanding supporting actress for her character of Olivia Spencer Lewis in Guiding Light. We will try to do better next year !
