Better Together!


Kristoff St. John (Neil) and Victoria Rowell (ex-Drucilla) were once magical together on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS. Now the dynamic duo is working together on a series of original films about the tight-knit Chandler family for the UP network. Their next, A Baby For Christmas, premieres Sunday, December 13, at 7 p.m. EST and will move their characters' romance forward. "I was more than surprised," St. John admits of learning that he'd be reunited with Rowell in the films. "It had been so long since we took the stage together."

In the last film, UP's ratings juggernaut Marry Us For Christmas, Rowell's character, Stephanie Chandler, was scrambling to plan her daughter's (Malinda Williams) wedding while trying to maintain the family's treasured holiday traditions. This year, she's got a pregnant daughter to look out for, a new romance of her own to balance, and a continued desire to keep their holiday on track. "She's competing with everyone else's lives and new interests and circumstances," Rowell previews, "and also dealing with the digital age... she doesn't like that."

Live tweet with the stars during the premiere at @victoriarowell and @kristoffstjohn1. For more details on the film and the actors' reunion, check out their exclusive joint interview in ABC Soaps In Depth on sale now, and in the next issue of CBS Soaps In Depth on sale Monday, November 30!

Harmon Still With B&B


THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL debuted a new opening which didn't include Winsor Harmon (Thorne). And although the actor took to Twitter to post: "I want to thank everyone for 17 beautiful years playing Thorne. I love you all. Thank you for the amazing run. B&B you'll forever B a part of me," we hear Harmon remains on recurring status with the soap.

So you haven't seen the last of Thorne... he'll likely pop up out of the Forrester Basement every so often!

"MAJOR" Role For Rikaart!


Greg Rikaart (Kevin, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) did a little moonlighting recently with a role on TNT's law series MAJOR CRIMES. He debuts tonight in the show's regular time slot at 9:00 p.m. ET as Bobby G. Monroe, an anti-death penalty attorney who is defending Slider, the young man awaiting trial for the murder of Alice Herrera.

"Unlike Kevin, [Bobby] has a very clear moral compass and has very black and white ideas about right and wrong," Rikaart tells Soaps In Depth. "It's been really fun to play a departure from Kevin who has moral and ethical fluidity to him."

The Emmy-winner had been in to read for a role during a previous season of MAJOR CRIMES, but while that one didn't work out, producers kept Rikaart in mind and felt he was right for the role of Bobby. "It's extremely flattering," he says. "I've never just been offered a role in my life [without specifically reading for it]. It's pretty cool."

For now, Rikaart is set for four episodes. Might we see more of Bobby? "That I don't know," the actor responds. "My character doesn't go away or die or anything like that."

Thanks to some fortuitous timing and cooperative scheduling between the two shows, Rikaart was able to complete his primetime role without having to take any time away from Genoa City. "It's been a great year for Kevin at Y&R," the actor says. "I had a busy year and have been heavily involved in a bunch of different stories. I'm incredibly grateful."

Nathaniel Marston Passes Away

Nathaniel Marston (Eddie, AS THE WORLD TURNS; Al, ONE LIFE TO LIVE) has passed away at the age of 40 from injuries suffered during an automobile accident. His mother, Elizabeth Jackson, broke the news on Facebook.

"Dear family and friends," she wrote, "it is with a heavy heart that I share this devastating news. My beloved and cherished son, Nathaniel Marston, who was putting up the good fight until last night, was not able to continue due to the traumatic and devastating nature of his injuries. Nathaniel passed away peacefully as I held him in my arms."

If Marston had survived the surgeries, his quality of life would have drastically changed. "He would have required a ventilator and would never have been able to utter one more word and would have been sentenced to life as a quadriplegic," Jackson wrote. "A condition that Nate would never have been able to tolerate. By God's love and mercy, Nathaniel was spared this living hell and has traveled on to be with God, his cherished grandmother Mary Jackson, grandfather John Jackson and my sister, his Aunt Nora."

Memorial services are planned for New York City, Kauai, Hawaii, and Gerlach, Nevada. Our thoughts are with his loved ones as this difficult time.

Rowell's Lawsuit Is Dismissed -- For Now

RowellLawsuitPic.jpg A federal judge yesterday dismissed a lawsuit filed by Victoria Rowell (ex-Drucilla, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) against CBS, Sony Pictures Entertainment and the soap's producers. Rowell claimed that Y&R refused to rehire her in retaliation for her public complaints about the lack of diversity at the soap both in front of the camera and behind the scenes. The defendants filed a motion back in May for the case to be dismissed based on their contention that casting decisions are protected by the First Amendment -- and that Rowell never actually applied for or auditioned for a Y&R role after exiting the show in 2007.

California District Judge John Kronstadt dismissed six causes of action against Sony, with leave to amend if Rowell can prove a more viable retaliation claim. For more on this story, see Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter.

Marston Scheduled For Another Surgery Today


According to his mother, Elizabeth Jackson, Nathaniel Marston (Eddie, AS THE WORLD TURNS; Al/Michael, ONE LIFE TO LIVE) is scheduled for another surgery later today, pending the results of a brain scan. There is a fluid build-up in his skull due to the brain shearing injury, and his doctors want to alleviate the pressure by drilling two small holes in his skull. Yet because Marston has been much more alert the past few days than he had been, "[the doctors] will perform a brain scan on Wednesday prior to surgery to see if the fluid has begun to dissipate on its own," wrote Jackson. "If, in fact, the fluid is dissipating on its own, surgery will be cancelled... So let's continue to pray that this surgery will not be necessary."

Jackson went on to detail several other "miracles" that the family has been given in the days since her son's accident, starting with how having been thrown from the cab of his pickup truck actually saved Marston's life. "Had he stayed inside, he would have been taken out in a million pieces," she explained. "The truck looks like it went through a crusher. This did not happen, and Nathaniel does not have a visible cut or bruise on his face, hands or feet. He has a few minor abrasions on his legs. How does this happen to a man who went through a windshield? God's will and love, that's how."

Brandon Beemer Back To DAYS!


Jason Cook recently returned to DAYS OF OUR LIVES as Shawn, but look for Brandon Beemer (ex-Owen, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) to reclaim the part in early 2016! (Cook had revealed in a radio interview that he only signed on for about two months.) As for Beemer, he attended the DAYS 50th anniversary bash over the weekend, and was also photographed on the set during Monday's cake-cutting ceremony. "So happy to be back!" he shared on Twitter.

In other DAYS casting news, Real Andrews (Walker, AS THE WORLD TURNS; ex-Taggert, GENERAL HOSPITAL) revealed on Instagram that he has been cast in a role on the NBC soap. "I am back," he captioned a photo that included the DAYS logo. "Thanks for all the support. Stay tuned for details."

Gaskill Is CASTLE Bound!


For "Cool Boys," the Monday, November 9, episode of ABC's CASTLE, Brian Gaskill is playing a character more in line with AS THE WORLD TURNS' psycho B.J. as opposed to his roles as THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Oscar or GUIDING LIGHT's Dylan. He's appearing as a dangerous man who heads up a heist crew. "He has a big scene with both Nathan Fillion [Joey, ONE LIFE TO LIVE] and Adam Baldwin [THE LAST SHIP], who is returning as Detective Ethan Slaughter [from season four], that you do not want to miss," previews showrunner Terence Paul Winter.

For Gaskill, reuniting with Fillion, whom he'd met while they were both soap stars, was an intriguing prospect. "I'd done stuff back with him in the 90s for ABC Daytime," Gaskill reveals. "He was Joey [on ONE LIFE TO LIVE] when I was Bobby [on ALL MY CHILDREN]."

However, Winter says their interaction on CASTLE might leave an even bigger impression. "I think it's something that people will be YouTubing and watching over and over and over again," he suggests. "I don't want to risk spoiling it by saying more, but it's wonderful!"

During the week leading up to shooting, Gaskill enjoyed spending time on set. "You know, when you're on the air eight seasons, you're not just successful, you're probably good people," he surmises of the CASTLE crew. "Not only were the costume people great, but also, they immediately sent me down to production where they were shooting and brought me to set to meet with the hair and makeup people. I don't think I've ever been on the primetime show where they took that kind of time with a guest star. It was great."

Tune in to catch him at 10:00 p.m. EST. For more about the episode, don't miss the CASTLE Primetime Preview feature in next week's ABC issue of Soaps In Depth.

Billy Says Bye Bye To Y&R!


THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS has confirmed that Burgess Jenkins is exiting as Billy. "It's been a terrific time," the actor said in a statement, "but after a lot of thought I have made the difficult decision to leave Y&R.

"Commuting back and forth from the East Coast where my home and family are based has been challenging," he added. "I've had a great ride in Genoa City and I will miss our talented cast and crew tremendously. I would like to thank all of the amazing fans for their support, [executive producer] Jill Farren Phelps and [headwriter] Chuck Pratt for their excellent leadership and everyone at Sony and CBS for this opportunity."

Rumors are currently swirling that Jason Thompson, who recently announced his plans to exit as GENERAL HOSPITAL's Patrick, is being eyed as the new Billy Abbott, but at this time Y&R has not revealed whether or not they plan to recast the role. Stay tuned!

Y&R's Kyle Goes Recurring!


THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS has confirmed that Lachlan Buchanan (Kyle) has been bumped to recurring status. The actor entered the scene on February 25 during the "Who Killed Austin?" storyline. Unfortunately, the big reveal that Summer and Kyle were not siblings — which would have been meaty material for Buchanan to play — was revealed off-camera before he was cast in the role. The Summer/Kyle romance re-ignited following Austin's untimely demise, but then the couple shifted to the backburner in favor of other stories.

Time will tell whether Buchanan's recurring status means he'll appear somewhat often, infrequently or if the character will simply vacate the story canvas. Y&R reminds that the show does not comment on the contract status of its cast members.

She Did It!


Congratulations to THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) for completing this weekend's Ironman Triathlon in Kona, HA with a time of fifteen hours and fifty-seven minutes!

Lang swam 2.4 miles, biked 112 miles and ran a full marathon (that's 26.2 miles) on Saturday. (Wow! We're exhausted just writing that!) The actress took to social media after the race and said it was magic to her ears to hear "Katherine Kelly Lang, you are an Ironman!" announced over the loudspeakers when she crossed the finish line. This is the first full Ironman competition Lang has ever competed in. "The theme of this race was [the Hawaiian word] ONIPA'A — [which means] perseverance and strength to move forward," she noted on Instagram. "And that is exactly what I did ... Thank you to all who supported me through this experience!"

Chloe's Back!


On today's episode of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, Elizabeth Hendrickson will be reprising her role as Chloe, who is returning to Genoa City to face Adam — the man who was responsible for the hit-and-run of her little girl, Delia. Since it's been over a year since the character has been on the canvas, Soaps In Depth is here to provide you with a refresher on the storyline that sent the beauty out of the town in the first place!

Two years ago, Chloe found herself in the middle of every parent's nightmare — the death of her child. After donating Delia's corneas to baby Connor (who was on the verge of going blind), the grieving mom grew emotionally attached to Chelsea's baby, even kidnapping Connor and flying off to Paris! Thankfully, Chelsea and Victor managed to rescue Connor and convince Chloe to take a step back from the emotional ledge. Alas, that mental stability was only temporary.

Back in Genoa City, the fashionista began to fantasize about re-creating Delia by becoming impregnated by her ex — and Delia's dad — Billy. Realizing that Chloe had gone off the deep end, her family and friends held an intervention. Although she was annoyed by their good intentions, Chloe eventually agreed to seek therapy... in California! Before leaving, though, she had good-bye sex with her soon-to-be ex, Kevin and then stole Billy's sperm!

Chloe snuck back into town in October 2014 for the anniversary of her daughter's tragic death. While she'd hoped for her visit to go unnoticed, she encountered Kevin at the roadside memorial devoted to Delia. There, she took the opportunity to apologize for how she'd treated him. He promised to keep her Genoa City stopover a secret... unaware that Chloe had an even greater secret — a baby bump that she kept hidden as she flew back to her new home in California!

Julianne Moore & John Stamos In A New Soap?


When CBS late night talk show host James Corden had two of daytime television's most famous graduates -- Julianne Moore and John Stamos -- as guests on the October 5 episode of THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH JAMES CORDEN, the comedian acted out a hysterical sketch with the actress who played AS THE WORLD TURNS' Frannie and Sabrina, and the man who broke plenty of hearts as GENERAL HOSPITAL's Blackie. But what made the bit even funnier is that the dialogue of the break-up scene were all lyrics from Taylor Swift songs!

All About ATWT Legend's ANACOSTIA Role!


When the Web series ANACOSTIA returns this fall, two-time Emmy winner Elizabeth Hubbard (Lucinda, AS THE WORLD TURNS) will join the cast in the custom-made role of Eva Montgomery. In making her Web series debut, Hubbard will be reunited with her ATWT daughter, Martha Byrne (Lily), who plays ANACOSTIA's Alexis. (This year, Byrne won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Performer In A New Approaches Drama Series for her role.)

Series creator, writer and star Anthony Anderson tells Soaps In Depth that daytime legend Hubbard was "absolutely" someone he's had on his wish list for the show. "Martha and I had spoken about this idea back in 2011 when she came on board," Anderson explains. "It was just a matter of the right role and opportunity and now we have it. It's going to be amazing. This character is a handful!"

Along with Anderson, Byrne wrote the story arc for Hubbard's character -- and will make her directorial debut in the scenes featuring Eva and Alexis. "We are keeping some of it a secret, but I will say this much: Eva is a woman determined to get what she wants by any means necessary," teases Anderson. "There is a point in the story where her actions are even called into question by those around her. It's going to be a joy seeing her in this role, and I think the fans will see her in a whole new light."

Y&R Actor Will Crack You Up!


If you saw Ignacio Serricchio's (ex-Alex, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS; ex-Diego, GENERAL HOSPITAL) side-splitting turn as Edmundo, the faux gay wedding planner on The Wedding Ringer, then you got a hint about just how funny the actor can be.

Currently, he's in Atlanta preparing to give fans even more evidence of his comedic chops with his role on the new BET series, ZOE EVER AFTER. In the sitcom, the ex-wife (actress/singer Brandy Norwood) of a famous boxer (Dorian Missick, SOUTHLAND) juggles motherhood, dating, and her start-up cosmetics business. "I play Miguel," Serricchio reveals. "He's a contractor that Zoe's ex hires — they own a lot of property, so he's the go-to guy to fix everything."

Might having the handsome hunk underfoot be an unwelcome distraction for the struggling woman, or just the distraction she needs? Viewers will have to wait until the January premiere of the romantic comedy to find out. For more details, check out Serricchio's Keeping Track feature in an upcoming issue of Soaps In Depth.

On THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, Marisa Ramirez did her best as cosmetic executive Carmen Mesta to try to straighten out the troubles at Newman Enterprises' Beauty Of Nature. Now she's working to eliminate a big problem in the city where her current show, CBS' BLUE BLOODS, is produced.

"Trying to provide affordable and safe housing in New York City is not easy," she says.

Amongst those teams is a seven-member one from BLUE BLOODS, The Bricks & Sticks Chicks, which the actress is a part of.

"We have a make-up artist, someone from the wardrobe department, our script supervisor, and also myself and fellow castmembers Amy Carlson (Josie, ANOTHER WORLD), Vanessa Ray (Teri, AS THE WORLD TURNS) and Abigail Hawk," Ramirez says proudly. "I've gotta get some steel-toed shoes! We have no idea what we'll actually be doing, but we are excited and looking forward to it."

Emmy-nominated actress Jean Carol, who played Harley and Frank's irrepressible mom, Nadine, on GUIDING LIGHT, can be seen now in the feature film Promoted as an upscale and entitled socialite. The movie's premise deals with three junior account executives who are pitted against each other as they try to climb their way to the top of the corporate ladder at an advertising agency.

"I love my character's name — Eliza Fox," Carol enthusiastically shares with Soaps In Depth. "She's the mother of the main gal in the movie — Marissa, who is played by Justine Wachsberger (Twilight). Eliza is very entitled and unaware of what's going on with her kids. She's very snobby and thinks she can buy her way through life."

One of Marissa's competitors is Cody Longo (ex-Nicky, DAYS OF OUR LIVES). "He's a sweet kid," says Carol, who shares that Promoted is available now on Google Play, Amazon, ITunes and Vudu and also on DISH Network.

How does the actress feel about all the different platforms on which today's content can be viewed? "For actors, the big pro is that there are more opportunities," says Carol. "A former acting teacher of mine, Richard Lawson (Lucas, ALL MY CHILDREN), says that now Hollywood is a second option and that [actors] can go out and create their own stuff!"

Gaston Moves In!


Who could forget Jesse Katsopolis, aka the front man for Jesse & The Rippers and the beloved uncle of the adorable, motherless children on ABC's long-running comedy, FULL HOUSE? Certainly not Justin Gaston (ex-Ben, DAYS OF OUR LIVES), who grew up watching the show in syndication. Now, he's starring as the iconic character's portrayer, John Stamos (ex-Blackie, GENERAL HOSPITAL), in the Lifetime original movie, The Unauthorized Full House Story, airing Saturday, August 22, at 8:00 p.m. EST.

"I was a fan of the show — the writing was really good — and I thought that other stuff like the hair and the catchphrases made Uncle Jesse a lovable character," Gaston relates. "Even though in the beginning, he was a really rough, biker/musician, the way he interacted with the girls [showed] his sweet, soft side, which was really funny."

While on screen, Jesse found love with Rebecca (played by UnREAL's Stephanie Bennett in the film), behind the scenes, Stamos' love life played out famously in the media. It's a situation that Gaston, who is now wed to THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Melissa Ordway (Abby), can relate to. "It's about the cast's rise to fame," he says of the movie, "while dealing with their personal lives and juggling the success of the show at the same time."

More than anything, the film is about the friendships, both on camera and behind it, and the memories they created. "It's really positive and well done," Gaston suggests. "If you were a fan of FULL HOUSE, you'll really enjoy this."
