Fan letters, Passions' scrapbook, & Reckell's and Evans' efforts

Dear Gathering 2001 attendees,

Due to the recent events in New York, the Roosevelt Hotel has lowered their room rates for the period of our event.   Anyone who reserved a room at the Roosevelt Hotel through the club will receive a $100 per night discount off of their confirmed rate.  The reduced club rates will now be as follows:

Single or Double Occupancy - $159.00 plus tax per night.
Triple Occupancy - $179.00 plus tax per night.
Quad Occupancy - $199.00 plus tax per night.

As a fundraising weekend to benefit families of victims of the September 11th attack, we will be holding a silent auction at the Gathering this year.  Auction items will include studio tours, scripts and show memorabilia from both Guiding Light and As The World Turns. Actors from As The World Turns will be joining us in this fundraiser on both days.   We invite you to redirect your hotel savings into bids and merchandise purchases, such that we can make a huge difference in the lives of so many suffering the loss of their loved ones.    Please note that we will be accepting payment by cash and check only for the auctions, no credit cards please.  We look forward to seeing you very soon.


Tim Frendak, Guiding Light Fan Club   

Your Letters!

"I am so pleased to see that Laura Spencer (Genie Francis) is not one of those anorexic actresses. She looks beautiful but normal. What does she weigh (just to give hope to the rest of us) and how tall is she?"  Connie

Genie Francis looks wonderful.  She is a role model for us all. She is 5'5" tall, but her weight is unavailable.  Besides, what the scale says isn't what really matters. What matters is how we feel about ourselves. How we carry ourselves, and how we look and feel in our clothes. Female bodybuilder Cory Everson weighs over 150 lbs, but wears a size 8!  It's all in the muscle tone.  :o)

"Several of us have a question. Do you have any information about the latest buzz concerning Stuart Damon leaving General Hospital?? Thanks for taking the time to respond!" Garden

I do not have any personal knowledge about Stuart Damon considering leaving General Hospital.  As is the standard practice of ABC Daytime, the show will not comment on contract status.  In my heart of hearts, I do hope that he continues on with the show, as he has always contributed a great deal in his portrayal of Alan Quartermaine. If he is considering leaving, it could be because the show has not provided him with an intriguing enough story for the actor in him to sink his teeth into in a long while. 

"I heard a lot of rumors that Joie Lenz and Paul Anthony Stewart are dating in real life. Is this true? Hope to hear from you. Thanks. chelet

Rumors are only rumors in this case. According to the spokesperson for Proctor & Gamble, Joie Lenz and Paul Anthony Stewart are not a couple, nor have they ever been.

"Is it true that JR was recast and Jesse (McCartney)is not playing him now, or wasn't that official yet???"  Jessica


"hey where do u get ur info omg im soooooo MADD that Jesse McCartney is leaving i feel as tho i want to cry he's so talented n i luv him in AMC and DreamStreet but this makes me soooooooo MADD i feel like crying im not kiddin so i was jw where do u get ur info??" Jaclyn

Both Jessica and Jaclyn are among quite a number of Jesse McCartney (JR, AMC) fans who wrote in response to my post on the "All My Children" Message Boards at Turtle-Run.com regarding his being recast. It saddens me to report that yes, Jesse is leaving and another actor named Jonathan Bennett will be assuming the role.  Turtle Run receives casting information directly from the horses' mouth, or in this case, from the ABC network publicity executives who handle "All My Children."  One of TRO's frequent AMC posters and community participants, Claudine, posted the following on the AMC message boards at Turtle Run.  According to Claudine, who received it from the Dream Street mailing list, this message was posted by Ginger, Jesse's real-life mom.

"As of last week, the writers of All My Children decided to 'age' the character Jesse used to play, 'J.R.,' to about 17-18 years old. They have already recast the role and the new boy will begin to play the role from this point forward. Jesse played "J.R.", Adam Chandler, Jr., for the past 3 years, since he was 11 years old. Having grown quite fond of all the cast and crew at All My Children, Jesse just wants to say he will miss them very much and had a wonderful time and substantial growing experience as an actor while he was there. He credits all the warm support of the his fellow actors at AMC and the faith of the writers who wrote for him, and directors who worked with him, for the opportunities he was given which lead to the support and nomination for the Best Young Actor Emmy in 2000. Jesse hopes you all enjoyed watching while he was J.R. and wishes the best of luck to the new boy who will play the role, as Jesse himself was one of the boys who was cast to "age" J.R. in the past. "

Turtle-Run wishes Jesse McCartney all the best. He is a very talented young man and will go far in the entertainment industry, whether he chooses to focus on his music (Dream Street), continue his acting career, or both! 

"Is it true Jesse McCartney is being recast? If he is, AMC will lose ALOT of young viewers, like me." Megan

I would hope that Megan and everyone will give the new kid a chance. He will have pretty big shoes to fill, but let's not judge his work before he has the opportunity to prove himself.  I hope that everyone continues to tune in. The first airdate for Jonathan Bennett as JR has not yet been set.  Stay tuned to Turtle-Run's Top of the Week casting section for the latest.

"I noticed that your spoilers rarely mention Cassie and Richard.  Why? Thanks for always keeping us up to date on storylines.  Love your website.  Mary

Thanks so much for the kind words.  No particular reason why we have not offered Sneak Peeks about Cassie and Richard.  We work with material generated by Procter & Gamble for Guiding Light, and if they don't send any info about Cassie and Richard, we don't know what's in store for them. But I thank you for bringing it to my attention, and I will try to dig up some dish on your favorite couple in the future.  In fact, be sure to check Turtle-Run's Guiding Light Sneakier Peeks for the week of October 15. There's something there that may be of interest! ;o)

Lots of NBC News....

Online Scrapbook Of Passions Super-Couple Sheridan Crane And Luis Lopez-Fitzgerald 

(Shuis fans be advised. The following article contains scoopage!)

NBC Daytime, in partnership with SoapCity.com, will provide viewers with an exclusive opportunity to look inside a special scrapbook that chronicles the romantic history of  "Passions" super-couple Sheridan Crane (McKenzie Westmore) and Luis Lopez-Fitzgerald (Galen Gering), online at NBC.com. The "Passions" bonus launches on Thursday, October 11.

The "Sheridan and Luis Scrapbook" is the latest in a series of online

bonuses designed to take the audience "Beyond The Scenes" of "Passions." Through the use of a specially designed icon that reads "Passions bonus: Log on to nbc.com/passions," viewers are notified on-air that a special feature is available online. The NBC Daytime online "bonuses" are designed to enhance viewer enjoyment of Passions (and Days of our Lives) with information that will not be revealed during the broadcast of the daytime drama.

Beginning October 11, viewers who log onto nbc.com/passions will get an intimate look at the relationship between Sheridan Crane and Luis Lopez-Fitzgerald, two star-crossed lovers who were tragically separated when Sheridan was recently lost at sea. In the "Passions" episode airing on October 11, Luis, who believes Sheridan to be dead, is presented with a scrapbook that was compiled by his younger brother Miguel and his girlfriend Charity. Though Miguel and Charity intended the scrapbook to be a wedding present, it is now a memorial of Sheridan and Luis's love.

Immediately following the broadcast, online visitors to NBC.com/passions will be able to click through the pages of the scrapbook and view exclusive letters that Sheridan and Luis had written to each other as well as other highlights of their relationship.

The "Sheridan and Luis Scrapbook" bonus will be available to visitors of NBC.com for several weeks to allow fans to relive the couple's romance, while they will wait patiently to see if fate will bring Sheridan and Luis back together on-air.
