Ah, Those Days of Being Locked in a Cage ...

I interviewed Don Diamont (Brad, The Young and the Restless) yesterday for an upcoming column, and the subject got onto YouTube and how they have a plethora of scenes from YR from way back when. I mentioned that I had stumbled upon one of the scenes from when Brad's crazy ex-wife, Lisa, kidnapped him and locked him in a cage.

I told him how funny those were to watch and asked if they were laughing and having fun with it while they were filming. Here was his reply:

“Those days were not fun. The actress who played Lisa was about as nutty as her character. It was not a pleasant working experience at all. I didn’t really speak to her.”

Damn, huh? Thank goodness he got out of that cage and she ran away. I told him, "I guess that answers my next question about whether it would be fun to bring the character of Lisa back, since she got away without a trace and without punishment."

His answer, of course was a solid: "NO!"

Here is a link to one of those scenes, if you'd like to take a walk down memory lane:

It's Confirmed: Tom Pelphrey Is Back ...

... if only for a little while. Fan favorite Tom Pelphrey, who plays Jonathan on Guiding Light, will be back for a three-episode story arc. His airdates are scheduled for July 31 through Aug. 2. I won't say why he's back, but he will get to see his mom, Reva (Kim Zimmer).

His return will coincide with the release of the book Guiding Light: Jonathan's Story, which chronicles what Jonathan and baby Sarah have been doing since they left Springfield.

My hope is that this return whets Tom's appetite to come back for more romance, danger and intrigue on GL. Fingers crossed!
