Jon Lindstrom (ex-Dr. Mark Mccormick) and Thaao Penghlis (ex-Dr. Micah
Deangelis) did not shine at the 46th Daytime Emmy awards (see below), it may be
different for Robin Wright.
The ex-Kelly Capwell is indeed nominated in the category best actress in a drama series at the Emmy Awards, for her role of Claire Underwood in the series House of Cards.
For the results, it will be necessary to be a little patient : the ceremony will be held Sunday, September 22.

|The Facebook homages of the former Santa Barbara members to Jed Allan||
Jed Allan walked on today. Along the way in his fantastic acting career, he played Eden's father - C.C. Capwell - on Santa Barbara. His gift was a formidable blend of professionalism and inspiration - a perennial rock in his preparation and a force of nature once the cameras rolled. He was also generous and kind and funny and fierce, and God knows he was beloved by those lucky enough to share a stage with him. I count it one of the great blessings of my career that I got to be one of those, and one of the great blessings of my life that I got to be his friend.
Jed was the finest actor - power and heart, humor and range to spare - and an even better man. He was about family. Protecting his own, and building it in the casts he graced. It was magic to work with him - his rock solid professionalism giving way to inspired energy once the cameras rolled. I join the millions of hearts who simply want to say : well done, good sir. In our dreams you are dancing through the stars tonight with your beloved Toby - now and forever.
|Homage : Jed Allan (1935-2019)||
Allan's career is impressive : since his debut in 1951, he has played in
dozens of films and series until the last few years. The audience discovered
him in the show Lassie in the late 1960s, before becoming a
star of the daytime soaps with the character of Don Craig whom he played
from 1977 to 1985 in Days of our Lives. In January 1986, he is
called to replace Charles Bateman in Santa Barbara and thus
becomes the new face of C.C. Capwell, whom he played until the last episode
of the show. A role that has marked the fans, C.C. having become, despite
his many face changes, inseparable from that Jed's.
|Homage to Eden and Cruz in Soap Opera Digest||
latest issue of the American magazine Soap Opera Digest offers on

Inside : a poll that makes appear that Eden and Cruz is the defunct soap couple that the viewers miss the most, and especially a two pages-tribute in photos devoted to the couple.
