Quote aussieoi: Question: Do you ever get to come up with plot or storyline?

Jess Walton: I have! The Cane storyline, actually.

MTS: It's yours?

Jess Walton: I came up with the storyline that she [Katherine] had stolen Phillip. Phillip wasn't really dead, she had stolen that baby. That's how we came up with Cane and that whole thing! I read it to the Producer at the time who said OH MY GOD I LOVE IT SO MUCH she pitched it immediately and she came back an hour later saying everybody loved it! And that's how the whole Cane thing came to be.


It was a brilliant idea! Ms Walton is a very talented writer! Bravo!
Cane is such a creep..

Quote aussieoi: Jess runs through her favorite men to work with.

Peter -- Familiar with his rhythm.

Eric -- He made it so safe to cry with him. He was great. Jill & Victor had a love story once.

Devon -- She loves to work with him. So soulful, she just stares into his eyes. He's so right there with her.

Daniel Goddard -- She had this amazing AMAZING connection with him, from the moment they met, they have this sympatico, he reminds Jess of her own son's energy.

Doug Davidson & Christian -- They always make her laugh.

Greg -- She loves Greg!

Jerry Douglass - They laughed the whole time.

Jeanne Cooper, she is so iconoclastic, both Jess & MTS miss her a lot.


I can see all this happening...I find myself looking into Devon's eyes also when he is on screen. BJ is a very good dramatic actor.

Crying with EB...I don't remember Jill every crying with Victor.

Quote Soap Fan: Jess didn't say a single thing about Billy Miller , David Tom are Thom Beiz? They all played her on screen sons too WOW.


TB and DT are not currently on the show so I can see her not mentioning them. But to omit BM...makes you wonder...and I know I shouldn't type this but I will anyways...makes you wonder if that is why Billy and Jill never get scenes because she prefers to work with DG. Well, I hope her love of working with BJ means more airtime for them together. I would love that. Devon needs a mother like figure to interfere in his business the way that we know Dru would have. I think that would make a big difference in his story.

Quote Lady53:
Quote Ona34: Michael Mulhney said on twitter that he had to thank Sharon Case for coming up with the character of Adam.. She pitched the idea to MAB and she loved it. Then MAB decided to write a s/l for Sharon and Adam and SC had made a request that she wanted more screen time. Therefore Adam was created. SC verified it.


Yeah I saw that too, but MAB wasn't even around when Hope had Victor Adam Newman in 1995 and as we all know characters on soaps have kids all the time and we rarely see them then in most cases not at all after they start school. Then boom they show up in their late teens or after college to take their rightful place in the fabric of the family they were born into. So Adam was bound to become a part of GC and the Newman family and for the first year and a half he didn't even interact with Sharon. So I don't believe Sharon came up with the CHARACTER, confirmation on her part or not. JMHO


Adam was not bound to become a part of the show...I cite Keemo Abbot and Scotty Baldwin as exhibit A and B. I won't rule out that Sharon was the catalyst that brought Adam on as an adult because it took them a while to have alot of story together. Many writers will introduce a character with one story before introducing them to where they are intended. Of course I am playing devil's advocate to my own opinion by saying that MAB was not the best at this.

No MM thanked Sharon for talking him into coming back after he left the soap. The writers wanted him back and he wasnt going to come back but Sharon helped them convince him to return. MM and SC pitched Shadam to MAB and she ran with it.


When did he leave the show?

Loved Cane when he first showed up, if Jess Walton is responsible for "THAT" Cane, they need to hire her to write....the crap they've changed up regarding Cane has totally destroyed him. %(

Remember when he faked his death and left the country. And Victor pushed the empty coffin out of the plain onto the runway. He wasnt coming back after that. But SC and TPTB talked him into it. When he came back he was on a beach in a sun chair with sun glasses a hat and flowery shirt on. My eyes were on him but I believe Skye was there also.

So it was Jess who came up with the idea that the son who was killed in a car crash and buried years ago should come back looking nothing like himself, speaking in a different voice, and with an Australian accent. Every storyline involving this character from the time he was first introduced has been ridiculous. Furthermore the actor who plays him has no more emotion than the chair I'm sitting on. If I were Jess I sure wouldn't want to take credit for this. And, it really bothered me that when Jill started crying at Katherine's funeral it was Cane who comforted her, not her son Billy.
