Since leaving Pine Valley in the mid-80s, Darnell Williams, ex-Jesse, has had a full career in television. He has guest-starred on several prime-time shows including the now-cancelled "Hunter" and "Promised Land", as well as hits like "ER" and the "Law & Order" franchise. Then, in 2007 he landed the role of "Griggs" on Guiding Light. It has been rumored that Williams may reprise the much-loved role of Jesse Hubbard on AMC. We will have to wait and see if that happens!
Charles Parnell, Derek, was recently replaced on-screen by Jerome Preston Bates. Parnell has been working on a film called "We Pedal Uphill". He plays the part of Horton.
Susan Pratt's Barbara was a character we all loved to hate in Pine Valley. Her verbal sparring sessions with Erica were on-par with the verbal battles between Erica and Brooke over the years. In addition to her role on All My Children, Susan has starred on daytime favorites Guiding Light and As The World Turns.
Ronald Guttman, ex-Alexander, has been very busy since leaving Pine Valley in the spring. The Satin Slayer was sentenced to jail, but the actor has had several roles since then. Guttman is currently starring in the film "August Rush" opposite Robin Williams and Keri Russell. He is also set to appear in "The Funeral Party" and "Tickling Leo". Will his evil Alexander return to Pine Valley some time in the future? We'll just have to wait and see!
