Comings and Goings

April 2013

The Bold and the Beautiful

Hunter Tylo (Taylor Hayes Forrester)

Coming!  Look for Hunter Tylo to return to The Bold and the Beautiful for a 3 week stint starting April 25, 2014.  This time round Taylor will come face to face with Ali. Taylor was involved in Darla’s accidental death but since Ali shredded Taylor’s wedding dress when she was about to become her step mother it will be interesting to see how these scenes play out.  Does Ali blame Taylor for Darla’s death?

January 2013

The Bold and the Beautiful

Hunter Tylo (Taylor Hayes Forrester)

Coming!  Though rumors are circulating that Huter Tylo is in talks with The Bold and the Beautiful about returning on a more permanent basis, they are supposedly untrue.  What Taylor fans do have to look forward to is the scenes that Hunter Tylo filmed for The Bold and the Beautiful before Christmas.  Look for a February 28, 2014 airdate.  The scenes are said to involve Taylor remembering her involvement in Darla Forrester’s death.

Schae Harrison (Darla Einstein Forrester)

 Coming! Also returning to The Bold and the Beautiful for a guest series of episodes is Schae Harrison.  Harrison portrayed Darla, Thorne’s wife and Aly’s mother.  She died in 2006 in a hit and run accident – the hit and run driver was Taylor Hayes Forrester (see above!) .  Darla is said to “appearing” to her daughter Aly over three episodes airing on March 18 and 25 and April 7, 2014.  Could these guest stints be foreshadowing of a bigger story line dealing with Taylor being responsible for Aly’s mother’s death?  Or just an opportunity for some flashback time for long time fans?

Days of our Lives

Drake Hogestyn (John Black)

Coming! For months fans have been speculating that Drake Hogestyn had been let go from Days of our Lives.  John Black has not been seen on our screens for many months.  But the news is good.  Drake Hogestyn has been filming at Days of our Lives!  The not so good news is that we won’t see him onscreen until early 2014 since Days of our Lives tapes so far in advance of air dates.

The Bold and the Beautiful

Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester)

Camila Banus (Gabi Hernandez)

Going! Like Chandler Massey, Camila Banus has announced she will be leaving Days of our Lives later this year to pursue other acting projects.  Were it not for the news that the character of Will Horton was being recast you could almost speculate that the young parents would be leaving Salem together.  Will Gabi be recast?  And if not, what of baby Arianna?

RUMOR:  Latest news is that Michelle Stafford may be headed to General Hospital?  If this is true, will her Y&R fans follow?

Jen Lilley  (?)

Coming! Jen Lilley has been reporting for work at Days of our Lives for over a month! Her character’s name has not been revealed as yet.  She is reportedly NOT a recast, but a new character with ties to those already in Salem…that’s enough to end speculation that Jen Lilley is a Belle Black re-cast.  Lilley replaced Kristen Storms (ex-Belle Black DAYS) as Maxie over on GH while Storms was ill.  Who do you think Lilley will be?  You can find out when she first airs – sometime in June – assuming the details aren’t leaked first.

Patrika Darbo (Nancy Wesley)

Going!  Look for nancy Wesly to head out of town soon.

Drake Hogestyn (John Black)

Going?  Drake Hogestyn is leaving Salem at the end of this week!  Poor John doesn’t know who to trust anymore.  Marlena has known about his son sleeping with Kristen for over a month and not filled him in.  This week he learns part of Marlena’s motive was purely selfish – While Kristen is sleeping with Brady, she’s not doing his father! John is confused and doesn’t know where he stands trust-wise with his family and leaves town to think…How long will John (Drake) be gone?  Hopefully, not too long.  John and Marlena are finally involved in a storyline of their own – lets hope there’s more story to tell there….

Patrika Darbo (Nancy Wesley)

Coming!  Patrika Darbo returns to Days of our Lives as Nancy Wesley mid-late january 2013.  Her return is no doubt related to her onscreen daughter, Chloe Lane’s return in early January 2013.  Will there be any mention of Chloe’s dad, Craig or her little sister?

Peggy McCay (Caroline Brady)

Caroline Brady returns on November 29, 2012.  Is her clinical trial for Alzheimer’s treatment over?  If she returns to Salem, what about youngest son, Bo, who went to Califormia with her?

Alison Sweeney (Sami Brady)

Ali Sweeney has signed for another 12 months as Sami Brady!  Alison also celebrates 20 years portraying Sami Brady on January 6, 2013.  Because of Days taping schedule that episode is already in the can!

Eileen Davidson (Kristen Blake, Susan Banks etc)

Coming!  A great time for Kristen and Susan to return.  Will Davidson take on multiple roles or will she be focusing on only one character this time round.  Susan is a logical return given EJ’s paternity “issues” but Kristen could pssibly add some excitement to John and Marlena’s lives.Read more>>
