B&B's deVry Goes Rogue!


THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's William deVry (ex-Storm) is literally back in action this week as his storyline kicks off on the CW's NIKITA. Speaking to Soaps In Depth from the set using his best Irish accent, deVry provided the deets about his new villainous character, Patrick Miller. "I'm playing a guardian. He's the keeper of secrets and a very important pawn in the game of espionage," the actor confides.

In the recurring role -- "It looks like I'm doing six episodes and counting," he shares -- deVry will have the opportunity to strut his stuff like never before. "I was introduced in the last episode, but the story really starts this Friday with a big reveal. And a lot of action right away," he says of the mid-season finale airing this Friday, December 2, at 8 p.m. EST "I'm doing all my own stunts, running, knife fights, gun shooting, and blowing 'em up!" NIKITA will return to the CW on Friday, January 6.

In the meantime, deVry is also currently starring as the head of an inept government spy agency in the Canadian sit-com INSECURITY. The primetime series is now in its second season, but fans can catch up with the 2-DVD set. When he wraps his current projects, the actor is headed to HBO's THE TRANSPORTER where he's been tapped for yet another intriguing role. "It's a corrupt CIA agent," deVry laughs. "I've been going from playing a smart ass to a bad ass."

Interview: It's A Gypsy Life For Newman!


In the two years since GUIDING LIGHT ended, Robert Newman (Josh) has had a successful run in theater, traveling across the country performing in productions of beloved musicals like Annie, Man Of La Mancha and, earlier this year, Curtains. "Life goes on, and as a by-product, careers go on," the actor tells Soaps In Depth with a laugh. "Most of my time in the past couple of years since GL has been on stage. That's where I love to be. I've had a great run of some outstanding roles, and they've all been successful."

In his latest project, Newman is starring opposite Broadway star Tovah Feldshuh in Gypsy at the Bristol Riverside Theatre in Bristol, PA. "Gypsy is a musical that's been around forever. Tovah is the leading character, Mama Rose. She's the ultimate stage mother. She drives her two daughters' careers to the point where they end up walking away from her," explains Newman, who plays Herbie. "He signs on as the girls' agent/manager, and he's also pursuing Rose and looking to settle down with her, marry and have a family."

Interview: Silbermann Heads To The Derby!


AS THE WORLD TURNS fan favorite Jake Silbermann (Noah) has a lot invested in the new Off-Broadway play Derby Day, which opens this week at the Clurman Theatre. His new theater company, The Camisade Theatre, is presenting the dark comedy as their first production! "We're flying by the seat of our pants," Silbermann tells Soaps In Depth. "I'm producing this as well as acting in it, and forming a theater company in the process. It's been a little difficult."

Set in a luxury box at the Oaklawn Racetrack in Hot Springs, Ark., Derby Day tells the story of the Ballard brothers, and how a day of drinking at the racetrack and revealing family secrets might just tear them apart forever. "They are "celebrating" the death of their abusive father, whose presence is looming throughout the entire show," explains Silbermann, who plays ex-con Johnny. "He's had such an impact on these three mens' lives, and we see this cycle of violence and how it goes from generation to generation."

The dark comedy does have a bright spot, however. "These three guys are just trying to do well with their lives. They hate themselves, they love each other, they hate each other. They've got a lot of history that they're not really equipped to deal with," he continues. "There are moments in the play that have me cracking up. A drama really becomes a dark comedy when it has a certain amount of laughs, and we cover that. It's a really funny, but sad, play."

While Silbermann knows what to do on the stage, the behind-the-scenes work was a new animal for the actor. "Malcolm Madera is another actor in the play who is co-producing this as well. We were naïve enough to think it would be an easy thing," he says with a chuckle. "We worked on a play together last year and became good friends. He knows the writer, Samuel Brett Williams, and we approached him to commission something for us. We were describing what we wanted, and he said, 'I actually have something written that seems right up your alley.' As soon as I finished reading it, I said 'We are going to do this play.'" The three men went on to found the Camisade Theatre Company.

Derby Day begins previews on Wednesday, November 30, and officially opens on Friday, December 1. The show will run through Saturday, December 17. For the full performance schedule or to purchase tickets, visit For more information on the play and Camisade Theatre Company, visit

Pelphrey Heads To Broadway!


This coming spring, the final days of The Wizard Of Oz star Judy Garland will be played out night after night on a New York stage, and Tom Pelphrey (Jonathan, GUIDING LIGHT; Mick, AS THE WORLD TURNS) will be a part of it! The Emmy-winning actor has joined the American cast of London's West End hit, End Of The Rainbow, which will make its Broadway debut in April. Pelphrey will play Mickey Deans, Garland's much-younger fifth husband.

Set in London in December 1968, Rainbow stars Tracie Bennett as Garland, who is about to make yet another comeback with a 5-week run at a West End theater. While Garland hopes that the shows will help her hold on to her star power, she struggles with strained personal relationships and a drug addiction that will ultimately lead to a fatal overdose six months later. Bennett received an Olivier Award nomination -- London's version of the Tony Awards -- for her run in the musical drama earlier this year.

While Pelphrey has been a part of many New York City plays in the past, this will mark his Broadway debut. End Of The Rainbow will have a pre-Broadway run at The Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis from January 28 through March 11, and previews will begin at the Belasco Theater in Manhattan on March 19.

That's Madam Martha To You!


Martha Byrne (Lily/Rose, AS THE WORLD TURNS) makes her debut in the third season premiere of Web soap ANACOSTIA, and her fans might be a little surprised by her new role!

"I play the head madam of a brothel," she chuckles. "I'm in charge of the girls. And I think the opening five minutes of the show are probably one of the most fun experiences I've ever had as an actor."

Byrne credits the show's creator Anthony Anderson for creating the role of Alexis Jordan and giving her such juicy material to play. "I think some of the Lily fans might be taken aback by it," she allows, "but I'm an actor, and I have to do things that are challenging or edgy."

The daytime vet will appear in a half-dozen episodes throughout the course of ANACOSTIA's third season, but taped all of her scenes over the course of a weekend. "I hadn't worked that hard in a really long time," Byrne confesses. "The heavy drama stuff is really draining. It's been a long time since I've had those kind of scenes that take a lot out of you physically and emotionally. I missed that."

You can learn more about ANACOSTIA over at the show's official Web site (and catch up on the first two seasons!), and watch Byrne's debut in the series' third season premiere at the show's Vimeo page. But be warned, there is some adult content! "They can definitely get away with a lot edgier material on ANACOSTIA than I'd ever seen on television," Byrne marvels. "You can swear and you can say things that I was surprised you can say!"

Accountant Steals From ATWT Star!


Oakdale's favorite attorney, Tamara Tunie (Jessica, AS THE WORLD TURNS), has found herself in the middle of a real-life nightmare. New York accountant Joseph Cilibrasi, who acted as the star's business manager for over a decade, admitted on November 10 that he'd stolen over $1 million from Tunie, the Kansas City Symphony's music director and other clients.

According to the Associated Press, Cilibrasi used the stolen money on lavish vacations, as well as to finance his own entertainment investments, including backing Broadway shows such as Legally Blonde: The Musical, Spring Awakening, and films including See You In September, which Tunie directed. Cilibrasi admitted in court that he secretly opened a credit card in Tunie's name, obtained his own card on the account by falsely listing himself as her husband, and wrote checks to himself from her accounts without her permission. "I stole over $1.4 million from Ms. Tunie Generet by converting funds from her [business accounts] to my personal use," he stated, using Tunie's married name. (Her husband is jazz singer Gregory Generet.)

Cilibrasi is due for sentencing on January 4, and is facing from 2 1/2 to 7 1/2 years in prison.

Tunie -- who continues to appear as medical examiner Melinda Warner on NBC's LAW & ORDER: SVU and returns to soaps on Friday, November 18, with a gig on DAYS OF OUR LIVES -- has yet to publicly comment on the situation.

B&B Honors Our Nation's Vets!


THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Dayzee may focus most of her attention on the homeless community, but in a very special episode airing Friday, November 11, she's opening her heart to the United States Armed Forces! The philanthropic restaurateur will be hosting a luncheon at Dayzee's Cafe along with Oliver, Hope, Marcus and Thomas -- and the soap cast 20 real-life war heroes to take part in the special Veterans Day show! Men and women from all branches of the United States Armed Forces and from wars spanning from "The Battle of the Bulge" of World War II to the current war in Afghanistan will appear.

Stacey Durkett, a former member of the Military Police, is one of the vets featured, and she says it was an honor to be included. "We would not have this country, and it would not be the way that it is if we did not have veterans to fight for us and to support for us," she tells Soaps In Depth of the importance of bringing awareness to viewers about what she and her fellow vets have done for the nation. "I'm all for peace as well, but I still do think you need the security of somebody protecting your country. And if I had to do it again, I'd do it again in a heartbeat. It makes me very proud."

As an added something special for the episode, country singer Beau Davidson makes a return appearance to the soap, and will serenade the men and women with new single, "Blessed." "We're right at the anniversary of 9/11, so it kind of came out of that," the musician says about the inspiration for the song. "I have to give [B&B headwriter and executive producer] Brad Bell a lot of credit for incorporating someone like me to premiere things like this."

Interview: ATWT's Bruce Lays Down The Law!


The holidays are coming early for Dylan Bruce (Chris, AS THE WORLD TURNS; Brian, THE BAY) this year! The actor stars in Love's Christmas Journey, a Hallmark Channel Original Movie premiering tomorrow night, Saturday, November 5, at 8 p.m. EST.

The four-hour -- set your DVRs accordingly! -- film also stars daytime vets Greg Vaughn (ex-Lucky, GENERAL HOSPITAL; ex-Diego, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS), Natalie Hall (Colby, ALL MY CHILDREN) and Charles Shaughnessy (ex-Shane, DAYS OF OUR LIVES), along with Academy Award nominees JoBeth Williams (Brandy, GUIDING LIGHT; Carrie, SOMERSET), Sean Astin and Ernest Borgnine. "It's a Western that takes place in the late 1800's," explains Bruce, who plays Deputy Michael Strode in the film, the latest installment in Hallmark's series of films based on the Janette Oke book series Love Comes Softly. "Greg's character goes missing. Natalie plays his sister. She comes to town and a romance blossoms between our characters."

Bruce was quite impressed with Hall's ability to juggle filming Journey as well as taping the final weeks of AMC on ABC last summer. "She was doing double-duty. I don't know how she did it," he marvels. "She's a sweetheart."

Aside from Love's Christmas Journey, Bruce is hard at work filming Season 2 of THE BAY (, where he plays Brian. Will his marriage to Zoey go off without a hitch? "Brian's stubborn," Bruce maintains. "He's going to make it happen."

While Bruce has gone on to work regularly in Hollywood post-ATWT, he fondly recalls his time as the offspring of iconic characters Bob and Kim, who were played by fan favorites Don Hastings and Kathryn Hays. "I miss them both a lot," he shares." Don is great and so hysterically funny. You don't think he'd be that way because he played the patriarch but he is. Kathryn is a sweetheart. I'd get all time the time from her [Kim's signature line], 'Listen, kiddo!' I think she added them herself if they weren't always in the script. She'd put them in anyway!"

Y&R's Walton: Learned Is A "Trouper"


Beginning next week, Emmy winner Michael Learned (ex-Shirley, GENERAL HOSPITAL) -- best known for her run as matriarch Olivia on THE WALTONS -- will temporarily step in for Daytime Emmy winner Jeanne Cooper as Katherine on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS. (As previously reported, Cooper had to take a brief medical leave.)

"Michael's doing a wonderful job, but Jeanne is Jeanne," says co-star Jess Walton (Jill). "Michael knows that she's just filling in for Jeanne. Nobody's asking her to be her, anyway. It's just a 'the part is being played by temporarily' situation. Michael's wonderful, but Jeanne is irreplaceable."

While Cooper's Katherine is indeed one-of-a-kind, Walton says that Learned is doing an admirable job. "She's very easy to work with. The woman knows what she's doing, obviously," she raves. "She's a trouper."

Walton has been in touch with Cooper by telephone, and reports that Genoa City's grande dame is on the road to recovery. "The last time I spoke with her she was doing much better," shares Walton, adding that she's been giving Cooper periodic reports on Learned. "I told her that I'd call her and let her know how 'Ma Walton' is doing."

Learned will make her Y&R debut on Thursday, November 10.
