If you had the power to take any soap character from recent history and transplant them onto any other show, who would you pick and what soap would they go on, what type of story would you want them to have?
In her book, Kim Zimmer mentioned that she had been approached by Bradley Bell to bring Reva over to B&B after GL ended, frankly I’m having a difficult time figuring out what Reva would do on that show; her glamorous days are behind her and plus Bell has a habit of taking name actors and leaving them out to dry on that show.
Anyway, my picks:
Alexis from “GH” would to me fit perfectly at Y&R; I think that NLG would have natural chemistry with most of the cast. I can Imagine a legal eagle like Alexis getting involved in numerous great cases in GC. Romantically she’d be a great match for Jack; she could perhaps be introduced as a hot shot lawyer Victor hires to bring down Jack, and in the process finds herself falling for him? I think Alexis and Phyliss could become bitter enemies. I think she’d fit perfectly with their cast. And frankly after years of being stuck with the likes of Steve burton and Maurice Bernard, Grahn could use a challenge.
I would have loved to see AW’s Felicia Gallant move over to another soap, I think she would have naturally fit over at B&B. She was glamarous and a romance novelist, something, I would think fits naturally in the world of fashion. She could have been involved with Sally Spectra and perhaps may have formed a bitter rivarly with Stephanie Forrester.
Hmmm who else? I always thought it was a waste that David Hayward never showed up on GH to try and win back Anna. or for that matter that Aiden Devane wasn’t brought over to GH to interact with his Devane family members. Also, Adien Turner, to me would have been a better fit at GH than at AMC. he would have naturally fit in. They need a few cops over there anyway.
What are your choices? and feel free to comment on mine, tell me if they suck or if they rock. but please be gentle with me.
bump! nobody has any suggestions?
Have David Canary (as Adam Chandler) head to Genoa City…Have him go head-to-head with Eric Braeden. The scenes would by eplosive. And have Adam bring his wife, Brooke (Julia Barr), with him. The very idea of seeing Brooke tango with Phyllis has me hoping this could happen.
I love your idea Morgan, I always thought that Julia Barr would be perfect on Y&R and adding David Canary to the mix makes perfect sense to me.
Here’s another one I thought of:
I always thought that Lynn Herring’s Lucy Coe would have been a natural fit at “One Life To Live”. Her quirky personality and ability to do both comedy and drama would have fit perfectly with people like Robin Strasser, Tuc Watkins, Kassie De Pavia and Roger Howarth. I could have easily seen Lucy taken in by the likes of Todd and used like yeterday’s trash; which urges her to seek out some sort of vengence. Her dark side could have come out as she got in over her head trying to seek revenge. i could easily have seen her involved with David Vickers; perhaps a love/hate thing. She would have been a great fit.
