Q:Why did Grace Bennett leave Harmony?A: She left town with David Hastings, who convinced her that he was her first, forgotten husband.

A shocked Grace looked forward to reuniting with her real family.
Q: My friend says another actress originally played Rebecca. That's not true, is it? A: Your friend is correct. Back in 2000, BRADY BUNCH alum Maureen McCormick (ex Marcia) was cast as Rebecca, but she only aired in a handful of episodes. Andrea Evans assumed the role and made it her own when Rebecca "returned to town" in 2001.
Q: How many kids does Julian have? A: Four: Fox, Fancy and another daughter (with Ivy) and Endora (with Tabitha). He raised Ethan, believing he was his first son with Ivy. However, he learned Sam is Ethan's father in 2001. He currently thinks that he fathered Theresa's son, Little Ethan, but she recently found out that Ethan is the boy's dad. And in summer 2006, he learned that Chad, the boy he thought he had with Eve, is actually his half brother, not his son. Phew!Q: Is Endora played by twins? No. Although most TV tykes are played by alternating twins in scenes, Nicole Cox portrays the little witch solo.

Q: Didn't PASSIONS have another living doll after Timmy died?A: Actually, two more arrived in 2002, the same year PASSIONS lost actor Josh Ryan Evans and his beloved character Timmy. With Tabitha (and fans) in mourning, Zombie Charity created Cracked Connie (Kacie Borrowman) to fill the void. When the evil character didn’t take off with fans, Connie created her own boy toy, Cecil (Arturo Gil). Fans still weren't interested, many believing Timmy's magic was irreplaceable, so the dolls ultimately skipped town.
