    I don't remember the last two at all. Back then it was almost one big happy family.

    Only Jill from this cast, although I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that Kay joined the show shortly after its debut.

    While there are still characters from the original cast, NONE of the current actors were on the show when it debuted on March 26, 1973. Jeanne Cooper, who debuted in November 1973, is the only actor who can be considered an "original" cast member.

    We are in total agreement on this issue. Jess Walton did not play the original character of Jill. Brenda Dickson was the first actress to play Jill and did it so well that the character gained notoriety quickly. Brenda even had reddish hair and I often wondered if she could be Phyllis' mother. They are so much alike!
