Robin Mattson takes the way of the studios again

Robin Mattson again on the American televisions : the ex-Gina DeMott Capwell of Santa Barbara joined the soap The Bold and the Beautiful since last September 29. She is there Sugar, a disturbed and psychopath prison guard, who sows terror within the famous Forrester family. For the moment in contract for a few weeks, Robin could see the duration of her role increasing if the public likes her character.

Robin had not played for television since her departure of All my Children in May 2000 (see the News of April 2000).

A plays there Bobby Mazariegos, lover of profiler Candice DeLong's, who offers his assistance to her to track a dangerous serial-killer who threatens her best friend.

In theatres in the Etats-Unis Homage
Robin Wright delayed

The Singing Detective, the movie by Keith Gordon with Robin Wright Penn, will have known many torments. Acclaimed at the time of cinema festivals in the United States, it has however knew many hypothetical release dates in the theatres throughout the year (see the News of February), before finally making its official release on the American screens this October 17. The film is announced like a cult movie, and not only because it includes Robin !

This end of year 2003 will also see the release of Virgin, written and directed by Deborah Kampmeier and produced by Robin herself. Robin will be the sister of Jessie, a girl who thinks of being pregnant by the action of God.

Lastly, among Robin's projects (in more of those we already spoke in the News of June), is Empire Falls, a TV movie for the cabled channel HBO, that she has just begun to shoot. Robin is there Grace Roby, the daughter of a restaurant manager in a small town in Maine.

Peter MacLean
(1936-2003)

With a little late, I made a point of paying homage on this page to the actor Peter MacLean, deceased on last May 28 in Los Angeles. Among very many roles for television and cinema, Peter MacLean had played two characters in Santa Barbara : the first Mr. Abernathy   (owner of the stables where Ted and Jake work) and the minister who marries Kelly and Jeffrey in 1987.

Santa Barbara digest

Julio and Kelly

They had been ousted, but here are back to the control of Santa Barbara, Bridget and Jerry Dobson, the creators of the show. That occurs of course in Hollywood. The couple plans to comfort the new Kelly, played by Carrington Garland, victim of a big disappointment, thanks to a beautiful love-story with a crooner. Who could be Julio Iglesias or, failing this, Engelbert Humperdink.
(Note : Role finally played by Chard Hayward)
