Yes, granted Justin did bring up his late wife Adrienne to play up as to Victor felt about her & when Justin told Victor as to who he was marrying, but still, a day ago or two days ago, when Bonnie learned of Victor’s plight, she reacted as if she was Adrienne, & then a day later mourned as if she was Adrienne & then August 18 2023 episode, when Just broke down & him turning on the waterworks & Bonnie took him into her, she brought him into her as if was she was Adrienne, my question is why?
I agree that Bonnie’s responses were more Adrienne like. I actually think that was Judy Evans playing Judy Evans and Wally Kurth playing Wally Kurth. No acting here at all. That was just the actors true heart feelings over no longer having John Aniston on set. There were even a few lines about Victor, that were actually more like what I’ve heard about JA.
That’s also one of the drawbacks I have been referring to. The actors are playing themselves & not playing their characters at all. We need to start to see the characters actions, not the actors. This soap is fiction, it’s up to the actors to play the characters, to play up not giving in to what they don’t see coming. Like, when it came to the sexual harassment that Sonny faced, what we saw was Freddie giving in to what he taped, no resistance whatsoever, we need to see more resistance out of the characters, not allowing the actors to give into what they tape. I can see the character of Justin turning on the waterworks, because Victor was more of a father to him, so I can see the character breaking the way he did. Look at Rikaart’s Leo, he allows his character to have guilt & remorse & hating what Leo is doing to Gwen, but yet, he continues to do it. That’s what we need to see more of. The guilt & remorse & trying everything to not to give into what.
