Soap Vet Gone Too Soon

Veteran soap actor Anthony Addabbo, who starred as Jim Lemay on GL, Tony/Jonny Carerra on B&B, Jeff Peters on Dallas, Jason Craig on Generations, & Dimitri Marick on All My Children, has died at the age of 56 according to soapoperadigest.com

Several stars spoke out in the wake of his death. Former co-star Beth Chamberlin (Beth, GL) responded to some tweets saying: 

"So Tragic. So much life ahead of him. I can't believe it. His poor wife and son. So, so sad. Shocked." 

"So sad. I can't believe Anthony is gone. This is just wrong." 

On Instagram Tracey Bregman, another former co-star posted a picture of Anthony and said: 

"So saddened at the passing of my friend and coworker from @boldandbeautifulcbs #rush #turk Too soon #anthonyaddabbo way too soon" 

Kristoff St. John said: 

"Anthony Addabo was a wonderful man, friend, artist. I worked with him for 2 years on the NBC Generations. He was truly a professional, with a wild side that made you laugh. I remember doing a personal appearance with Tony and I just stood by watching all of the girls try to rip his clothes off. I was jealous until I realized I didn't want to be naked in public. Tony was missing half his T-shirt and hat. May you rest in heaven dear brother Tony. Save me a place. Love you. #anthonyaddabbo #LoveUBrutha #RIP"

Winsor Harmon took to his Facebook page saying: 

"Today we lost a damn good man a father and great actor. Here's to you TA. We shared many glasses of Vino Rosso together brother. I'll never forget how excited you were to land B&B. By the way you still owe me that lobster dinner. I'll collect next time I see ya. We will miss you my dear friend. RIP. I know you're walking the streets of Gold bringing joy to the Angels as you did here on earth. God Bless you man. Love and miss you brother."

Could Guiding Light Alum Stephanie Gatschet Be Looking to Return to Daytime?

I stumbled upon something interesting while scrolling through Instagram last night. It was a comment posted in response to a General Hospital video. The video was reposted by actress Laura Wright (Carly, GH; ex-Cassie,GL). The response came from actress Stephanie Gatschet.

You may recall that in addition to playing Madison North on All My Children, Gatschet played Cassie's daughter, Tammy, on Guiding Light.

Gatschet's comment to Wright was "I miss creating melodrama...keep an eye out for a good role for little ol' me. I wanna play!"  (Check out the screenshot below)



So could Gatschet be eyeing a return to daytime? How cool would it be to see her starring opposite Laura Wright again?

Gatschet most recently starred in the web series Misguided.
