    Guiding Light: Actor Appearances

    Thursday, March 22 2007


    Pelphrey has a new role (Soaps.com)
    Tom Pelphrey (Jonathan Randall) has spread his wings since leaving the cast of Guiding Light . You can catch the Emmy winning actor in a new role on Numbers. He will portray Mike Daley, a sinister computer geek exploiting his talents in the name of darker powers. Previews have already indicated that Pelphrey makes a remarkable transformation from his role as GL's tortured prodigal son to psycho nerdy misfit. Tune in to see if you can recognize the change. It will air on CBS Friday March 30th at 10:00 PM.


    Scott Bailey as Sandy Foster (CBS)
    Since Jonathan saw Tammy push Sandy Foster off a cliff, we haven't heard much from his portrayer, Scott Bailey. Now you have the chance to catch him in MyNetworkTV's new telenovela Saints and Sinners. The modern Romeo and Juliet story features Bailey as the heir of a hotel chain in romantic conflict with his family when he falls for the daughter of a rival. The show also features talent from Passions. In a recent interview, Bailey reminisced about his days in Springfield saying that 'I miss the fans of Guiding Light . They're unbelievably warm, even though I played a psycho. They still sometimes come up and go "Hey, Sandy!" and hug me. I hope that some of them watch me on Saints & Sinners, and that they really like it.' For the full interview, including his affectionate recollections of Kim Zimmer and Robert Newman, visit here.

    In other news, if you are in New Jersey this April, you may want to check out the Second Annual Stars That Shine Casino Night, Karaoke and Bartending Soap Opera Event to benefit the Central Jersey Chapter Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

    I can't wait to see Tom on Numb3rs!! It is gonna be kinda weird seeing him on a different show playing a diffrent character, cause I'm so use to seeing him as Jonathan! But he is an amazing actor and I'm sure he is going to do a fantastic job!!!

    I can't wait to see Tom Pelphrey on Numbers. Of course, I know a part of me will be holding my breath in hopes that Tammy will show up and they'll be reunited!

    Well, I think its wonderful that Tom is going to be on numbers, but I also think Tom's charactor Johnathan Randall should come back and baby Sarah. AND JOSH AND CASSIE come on now everyone knows it's should be Josh and Reva. It just makes me sick seeing J and C togeather. Something needs to happen and J and R get back togeather! AND I think they're gonna let Alan sleep FOREVER!!!!

    Don't you think its time to let Cassie go....What is this??? Reva get older and she is throwen to the curb, by the producer because they want a younger woman for Josh, Well if it had to be that why not a totally new woman, why her sister, that is really disturbing to me, that in the real world we believe that its wrong. But its O.K. to show it on T.V. And if Alan Michael is leaving the soap, then he
    should be the one responsiable for Alan shooting.
