If Megan was born 1963, explain as to how the character of Megan was born 2 years before Days Of Our Lives came on? On this show’s message board at SoapSheKnows, it was brought up that Megan was born 60 years ago when this show is 58?May 30, 2023 at 8:17 am #59713mommytutuParticipant
You aren’t seriously asking this question? Many actors and characters were born before the show came on. Doug, Julie, John, Marlena, Steve, Kayla, Abe, Paulina, Hope, Bo, the list goes on.May 30, 2023 at 5:25 pm #59714
This goes to when they had covered the story on Gwen. I get as to why it was needed, because Gwen thought her family knew of her, she never knew that her family never knew of her, but what I’m getting at is that they gave the illusion that the character came first, before the actor was old enough & they had hired her to play the character. That needs to stop. Like when Tamara had supposedly told Marlena, her sorority sister that her daughter, Lani was never Abe’s, but it was first put out there by her mother & her sister 30 years later. That’s what I’m getting at. You tell me as to how Doug was born before Days came on in 1965, given that when Doug was in prison with Bill Horton, he wasn’t playing Doug was he, when he & Bill were inmates. Julie, when the first actress played the role, that was when she was arrested for shoplifting. What I’m getting at is that when Bill Hayes entered the show, they hired him to play the role. Then when it came to Greg Rikaart’s Leo, he had put it out there as to what he had learned, GR broke the fourth wall, by putting it out there as to what the actor had read, there’s no story as to how the character knew, now was there. The same with Zack Tinker, & the same with Colton Little, they allowed their characters to be willing to what was coming, it’s up to the characters to put up a fight. When they had Freddie & Eric, having a verbal smackdown, it was shear brilliance, it was like Alexis & Krystal, now we see none of that, we don’t see any one putting up a hell of a fight, now do we? These writers are allowing the characters to take it. That needs to stop.May 31, 2023 at 8:28 am #59717mommytutuParticipant
Sorry, but I am completely confused by the point you’re trying to make.May 31, 2023 at 3:29 pm #59720
What I’m getting at is this: When the writers create a character, & there’s a casting call for who hires the actors & see their talents when they try out & once they find the perfect performer & that they are hired to play the character. That doesn’t happen here at all.
In the case that I’m putting out there is this: They gave the illusion that the character of Gwen existed before the actress was old enough & hired to play the character of Jana on Young & The Restless.
Second case: With Colin Bedford. with that character name being a mash-up of Colin Firth, & Robert Redford, you tell me as to how anyone would believe that he was in Spain with his sister & their parents before the writers had created the characters, before the actors were hired to play those characters?
Then with Abe being who he is to Nicole, the baby-daddy story had to have him to play second fiddle to that?
Then with Justin & Maggie: Is Alex that much of a juvenile, that he had go crying to his daddy to have daddy fight his battles for him? This one is just a side-note.
