Guiding Light: Actor Appearances
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 DOOL and 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.
