Rumour On stage
Marcy Walker ready to go ?

Would Marcy Walker be ready to leave All my Children ? It is at least the rumour which runs in the small world of American soap-opera. With all her discretion, the ex-Eden Capwell of Santa Barbara plays there Liza Colby Chandler for almost ten years, after a first passage in the same role between 1981 and 1984.

The actress does not wish to comment at this day, not more than the network ABC which refused to confirm or cancel the rumour. Bad sign ?...

They are shooting...

Michael Brainard works doubly since the beginning of this year : the ex-second Ted Capwell of Santa Barbara indeed finished the shooting of two movies for the cinema. Toi and Poochie tells the story made of misery and disenchantment of an immigrant young person in the United States. The Untitled Onion Movie, lighter, is a film of satirical sketches on the American society, starring also Tom Wright (ex-Vic Boswell). Wouldn't Michael be a little non-patriotic ?

The actor Corbin Bernsen joined together his mother, Jeanne Cooper and a some of her partners of The Young and the Restless, of which Eileen Davidson, to the credits of his next movie, 3 Day Test. A story of family conflicts three days before Christmas. The ex-4th Kelly Capwell of Santa Barbara will make her first appearance on a cinema screen for fifteen years.

The TV movie Tales of a Fly on the Wall joins together, sixteen years after Santa Barbara, Warren Burton (ex-Major Phillip Hamilton) and Brian Tochi (his faithful servant Kai). And not by chance, since it is Brian Tochi himself, as scenario writer and director of this fiction, who chose Warren Burton to appear in the credits as the narrator. The TV movie, which should be aired on the American television this year, is a tale about bad curiosity.

The book of the month
Jed Allan on paper pages

Please, Spell the Name Right ! It is the heartfelt cry of Jed Allan, in cover... of his autobiography to be released this month in the United States ! A title-jobe in reference to the bad recurring orthography of his surname in "Allen" in the press. Co-writted by Rusty Fischer, the book recalls Jed's rich and impassioned career, from Lassie to Santa Barbara, lingering also on the great events which marked his private life, from the birth of his sons to the death of his wife Toby in 2001 (see the News of August 2001). A book to devour urgently...
