AMC Legend Passes Away


The daytime world has lost one of its true legends. David Canary (Adam/Stuart, ALL MY CHILDREN) passed away of natural causes at the age of 77 on November 16 at The Greens at Cannondale in Wilton, Connecticut.

Canary had a career that spanned stage and screen, but daytime audiences remember him best as Pine Valley twins Adam and Stuart Chandler, roles he played for over a quarter of a century. Over those years, the actor earned 16 Daytime Emmy nominations and took home five for Outstanding Actor.

A private funeral service is being held for immediate family, but a memorial tribute is planned for a date yet to be determined. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations be made to the David Canary Memorial Fund at the Alzheimer's Association. You can find that link by clicking here.

Our thoughts are with his friends and family at this difficult time.

GH Star's New Movie!


Ryan Paevey (Nathan) is doing a little moonlighting from GENERAL HOSPITAL in the upcoming Hallmark Channel movie Unleashing Mr. Darcy! Naturally the actor will be playing another dashing romantic lead, but this time instead of a cop, Paevey will be portraying a billionaire dog breeder!

Based on the book by Teri Wilson, Unleashing Mr. Darcy is the story of a young woman who thinks the only companion she needs is her dog, but then she meets the charming dog breeder Donovan Darcy. Will he be the man to change her mind?

Actress Frances Fisher (Suzette, GUIDING LIGHT) posted a photo of herself and on-screen "nephew" Paevey on Twitter, and the author herself has taken to social media herself to sing the actor's praises. "Wait until you see Mr. Darcy in his tuxedo!" Wilson tweeted. "Oh my gosh, melt."

The film was shooting in Canada last week, and seems likely to air around Valentine's Day, which would be appropriate. And if you need any more incentive to check it out, author Wilson also tweeted: "I'm watching them shoot the wet Mr. Darcy scene, in which he climbs out of the pool. (Just about every woman on set has thanked me for writing it.) So things are going pretty great here..."

Thompson Says Good-Bye To GH


While we still don't know the airdate for the episode in which Jason will bid farewell to Port Charles, portrayer Jason Thompson has revealed that last Friday, November 20, was his last day on the GENERAL HOSPITAL set.

"Yesterday morning. Nov 20th. 5:55 am," he posted on Instagram alongside a video of a peaceful sunrise. "It was my birthday and also my last day of playing Patrick Drake on GH after 10 years. It was a long, emotional, exhausting, thrilling at time overwhelming day, and I am so grateful for every one of those moments.

"Change can be exciting and scary all at once," he continued. "Shake it up... see what comes out. Thank you for the birthday wishes. Thank you for the well wishes. See you soon."

Whether we'll see him soon on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS if the rumor he's the new Billy Abbott pans out, or if we'll see him on another soap or primetime series, only time will tell. One thing's for sure, we'll let you know what's next for the actor as soon as we know!

Cassadine Island Chaos!


You have to give it to Helena Cassadine: The woman knows how to entertain guests. Sure, she could have provided some snacks and beverages for Jason, Nikolas, Sam and Elizabeth, given how far they'd come to see her. But she was dressed for the occasion in those cute pajamas, and she certainly put on quite a show.

Pressed for answers, Helena warned Jason that he might not like everything he was about to hear, but he was determined to have answers. And with each word Helena spoke, you could see Liz and Nikolas cringing in fear that his not-so-beloved granny might reveal their complicity in keeping Jason in the dark about his identity!

Helena took great pleasure in taunting her guests. And of course, this being Helena, she got in more catty remarks than the BIG BROTHER Zingbot. "If your taste runs to the insipid," she quipped to Jason, "it's easy to see how you could fall for Elizabeth all over again." And lest you think Sam got off easy, Helena cursed her! That's right, the old broad broke out the word-for-word curse she'd placed on Luke and Laura back in the day!

By hour's end, Helena's guests had become bored with her party tricks and demanded that she cough up answers. Elizabeth reminded everyone that Helena had done the whole mind-wipe thing before with Lucky. And so, as the episode closed, we were left with one big question hanging in the air: Did Helena know how to restore Jason's memory? Actually make that two questions, because we were also left wondering if, even if she could, she actually would!

In other news, Morgan took Kiki to a remote (read: cellphone unfriendly) cabin where he worked hard to prevent her from finding out what was going on with Franco back in Port Charles. What Morgan didn't know was that Nina had convinced her brother to check into the facts surrounding Carly's accident. Armed with proof that Kiki, not Franco, had caused the accident, the hunt was on for her and Morgan. And as Morgan's behavior became increasingly erratic -- he even suggested they might spend the winter there -- Kiki began to suspect all might not be right in their world. That was definitely confirmed when a sound outside prompted the tempermental hunk to grab a gun and vow to protect Kiki! Epiphany took Sonny to the gym for a therapy session and some tough love.

So as we head into the weekend, let's do some wild speculation, shall we? Do you think Helena might be able to restore Jason's memory? Do you think she will? Sound off below with your comments about this week's episodes and remember to join us at @soapsindepthabc at 3 p.m. EST as we live-tweet each episode!

The Evolution Of Dillon


In his desperation to win Lulu away from Dante, Dillon blew up his entire life. Now he's lost the girl, the movie and his mojo. In the new issue of Soaps In Depth, portrayer Robert Palmer Watkins considers where his character can go from here.

"Dillon's very up in the air," Watkins teases. "He's just not inspired to do the movie anymore, because it was basically about Lulu and now that's all in shambles. We finally had a love scene and Lulu cut it off. If that story is over, I hope they let Dillon be single for a while. If he was that in love with Lulu, he needs some time to get over her... But at the same time, love stories are interesting!"

While Dillon "definitely feels guilty" about playing the sizzle reel that exposed Valerie and Dante's affair, Watkins isn't complaining. "It's been a shift in his character," he explains. "He's no longer just the good guy, which I'm enjoying. You don't just want to play the good guy, all the time. That gets boring, so I'm glad he was the one who did it. We'll see what happens..."
