Beautifully said! I agree totally! Gabi is obnoxious to watch! She over acts aaaallll the time! Calm it down some and it would be a little more believable. Sami is the best!

Personally, I love Gabi and I'm loving this turn for her character. Not understanding why so many people are trying to say she's not Sami...that's not what the subject of this post is saying. It's saying the greatest character SINCE Sami Brady. Anywho, while I think there have been greater characters than Gabi since Sami, I have to say that Gabi is one of the characters I'm most excited to watch now.

Yeah, I can think of other actresses like ED/Kristen, KM/Abby and others that IMO, are much better than Sami. No offense to AS, she just played the character she was hired to play. I thought her character improved a lot there toward the end, when she and Kate became friends, the Sami character seemed to mature and settle down a bit.

Totally 100% agree with you.

IMO. Jen Lilly is one great performer. I fist saw her as a stand in for Kiersten Storms on GH. Then a fabulous staring role as the old testaments Queen Esther. I just started watcing DOOL after 30 years, and have totally enjoyed catching up. Jen made it so much more of a pleasure. Sorry to see her leave. I will be looking forward to seeing her in upcoming projects.

Jen Lilly is another reason today’s show was so touching. In spite of everything that Brady & Eve put her through, she was still caring and gracious with them. Her scenes with Brady and with JJ were priceless. :cry:

I'm pleased that the writers are changing Gabi. Characters seeking vengeance are usually more interesting than characters seeking affection from uninterested men.

I'm also watching Claire. I think that this actress will grow into villain roles (perhaps like OLTL's Dorian). She has a very expressive face and a firm jaw.

And I'm sorry that Jenn Lilly wasn't used more. Theresa was more interesting this time around.

I am proud of you, Camila! Let Gabi get them! :twisted:


I tend to gravitate towards the characters that actually aren't perfect, don't' act like they're perfect, and don't get treated like they're perfect To me, they have more depth, bring more drama and you want to love to hate/hate to love them. Sami and Theresa have been my favourites over the last *cough* 25 years or so because of this.

Camila is fabulous in her role, and the way she plays Gabi is terrific. I really hope the writers do her justice though. I can easily see this becoming another "poor Abigail" story.

I totally agree I think CB is better as a bad girl...and I always love characters that are split in the middle characters that are real to themselves. Oh and trust me this is already a poor perfect precious Abigail story.
