I am so excited to see that Molly will return to ATWT ...now I am wondering how and when and why...and when will Carly return!
I wasn't a big fan of her when she left. i wasn't to keen on how quick she moved on after Jake. But, then again I was an "Another World" reject. so i don't think i would have been to happy if she had taken longer to move on. So hopefully they won't make her as whimpy like she was when she left.
I think the show realized they made a big mistake having her move on so quickly after Jake.I was so disappointed when they dropped the Molly/Holden/Lily/Dusty quad in 2004 and she ended up leaving. I hope they revisit that with Damian in the place of Dusty.I'm very happy that she is coming back! The recast was terrible so welcome back Lesli!
I'm surprised she'll be doing double duty on ATWT and B&B simultaneously, in different roles.... One can imagine that she could even be competing against herself during next year's award season ,if both shows cook up good enough storylines for her to play ...Though I imagine it might be odd for some viewers to see her as Felicia (B&B) and then later in the day ( or earlier) as Molly (ATWT), I bet the producers have worked it out so she doesn't necessarily air of both shows every day ...and whenever her storyline reaches a pivotal moment on one show, her storyline on the other show doesn't also pay off, on the same day...It's gotta be a win-win for both shows, why do it otherwise?
I think it was SOD but I could be wrong that said Chris Goutman and Brad Bell talked first before even bringing the idea up to Lesli. So I have to think the shows feel it is beneficial to both as well as to Lesli. I know she had suggested a return in the past but it didn't happen. As I understand it, she hasn't been getting a lot of airtime on B&B.I'd love to think the others are on board on trying to do what they can to help save ATWT. For the genre to lose another soap would not be good. ATWT seems to be revisiting what worked in the past and it is getting viewers excited again. There were ups and downs with the character of Molly and hopefully they can recreate the ups. I'm far more excited about a former ATWT cast member returning that hearing about another ABC reject joining the cast.
yeah i also read about how G.& B. spoke before the deal was done in SOD.But one way or another , I'd hardly call the new additions "ABC rejects"....Those who know the genre are a force to be reckoned with ( Jon L. is especially good - but then he also has great material to work with and gets to work with almost everyone) ...I never saw Santa Barbara and rarely watched GH , but bet all the recent additions are glad to be working in NYC ( brooklyn, close enough) and on ATWT. The ratings don't reflect the quality of the show. Much better than GH , from what little I have watched, acting and writing wise...
she's hardly on B&B. you see her,maybee two or three times a month. i've never liked her as Felicia. She was WAY too wrapped up in her parent's marriage there(but it is soaps) and they never gave the character good stories.it will be great to have her back as Molly though,someone for Carly to have around.
