All was festive and congratulatory on Wednesday, January 28, 2004 at stage 41 over at CBS Television City in Los Angeles.  The cast and crew of The Young And The Restless celebrated Jeanne Cooper's (Katherine) 30th Anniversary with the show. 

As the longest-running cast member on Y&R, Cooper has has achieved quite a list of accomplishments, including five Daytime Emmy nominations.

In 1989, she received a Soap Opera Digest Award and the Soap Opera Digest Editor’s Award.  In a notable distinction, this May, Cooper will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Daytime Emmy Awards.

Cooper earned her very first Emmy nomination in 1961 for an episode of Ben Casey and received a star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1993. Her recurring role on L.A. Law, playing the mother to her real-life son, Corbin Bernsen, earned her another Emmy nomination for Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series in 1987. Bernsen recently joined his mother on Y&R, making several guest appearances as a priest.

Cooper will always be included in the daytime record books for her groundbreaking on-air face lift surgery.  In 1984, Cooper’s real-life facelift was televised on Y&R as her character underwent the surgery at the same time.

Past Blast

All My Children's Walt Willey opens up about being a stand up comic

All My Children may be off the air, but one of it’s most, charming, debonair, drop dead gorgeous, and hilariously funny stars, none other than Walt Willey (Jackson Montgomery), is out on the road again doing his stand up comedy act.  On Sunday, May 18, Willey hits the Detroit area, starring for one night at Comedy Castle in Royal Oak, MI.  

Soapdom’s Laurie Bedigian caught up with Willey over the weekend via email and asked a few questions about his comedic roots, his love of acting, his comedy heroes and more.  Plus, he shares a bit about what the audience can expect on show night.  All I can say is the subject of sex may be involved.  Say what?  I’ll let Willey clear that one up for you.  LOL
