On AW didn't Anne Heche and Paul Michael Valley not get along? I thought I have read something about that yet Vicky and Ryan were hot as hell onscreen!

Did some people not like Jensen Buchanan nearer to the end of the show's run? I know she had a lot of contract perks like her schedule, being flown by helicopter to and from the studio, etc.? Wasn't she blamed for someone being written off of the show because she resigned her contract at one point?

I miss AW! Were there any other instances of actor fueds on the show in the later years? I always had the impression from interviews that for the most part they all were a close cast.*0

Speaking of Philece Sampler, she wasn't Thaao Penghlis's favorite on Days.*0

In regards to Jensen Buchanan: I just remember one time that she was having 'contract negotiations' and when she finally signed they let someone else go (I think Carmen Duncan as Iris) and it upset some people because they blamed it on having to offset Jensen's contract. I have no idea if this was true or not, but it had a lot of press at the time.

In regards to Philece Sampler: I loved her on DAYS but she was not Donna Love. She just did not fit or seem comfortable in that role. It doesn't surprise me that Anne Heche didn't like her.....side note...wasn't Anne Heche going out with David Forsyth shortly after joining the show (when his character was involved with Philece's onscreen)? Maybe that had something to do with it.*0

Wait, Jensen Buchanan was flown to and from the ANOTHER WORLD studios? Really? Uh...don't get me wrong, I hate NYC traffic as much as the next guy...but Jensen, honey? That's a little - how shall I put this - ridiculous.*0

She had moved to Connecticut, I believe, and she wanted to be flown in if she was going to stay on the show.

They should have recast Vicky/Marley after she left in 1994. Between the money paid to her and the money JFP burnt through it's a wonder they even had sets in those last few years.*0

Thanks, Carl, for the explanation. I still think it's absurd of her to have made such a demand, though. :-)

Unless, it was one of those "Oh, they'll never agree to this (and I'll be free to turn down their offer)!" demands that actually backfired (for her) when the show actually agreed to it.

It might have been. When AW asked Sandra Ferguson back in early 1998, she made big demands because she didn't want to return and assumed they would turn her down. To her surprise they agreed to the demands.*0

They agreed (to SF's demands, as well as to JB's), because they were desperate. Pure and simple. If ANOTHER WORLD had been in better shape, then maybe - maybe - they would've walked away. However, their ratings were in the toilet, so in their minds, it was worth whatever money it would cost to meet such demands if the end result was granting the show a momentary stay of execution. It's just unfortunate that no one bothered to focus on the show's real problem - meaning, the awful writing - until it was too damn late.*0

True. I think in 1998 it was a little more understandable than in 1994, but both were not great ratings years for AW. Of course the last time the show had ratings growth, 95-96, Vicky wasn't even around that much.

I guess AW/P&G/NBC just kept on trying because they assumed a big revamp would always work, either through laziness, or because of the Lemay revamp which had been successful. The most desperate had to be, "Hey, let's have Michael Malone import his bible to a show that is nothing like AW and rip off a few of his own OLTL stories while he's at it."*0

What's your source on this? Not that it surprises me- Sampler was rumored to be quite unpopular on the DAYS set, ultimately leading to her being killed off.

In 94 and 98 they had some good possible replacements Like Noelle Beck in 94/98 and Ellen Wheeler in 94. Seeing EW playing Vicky Again Would have been fun*0

Heard That Jackie Courtney and George Reinholt Used To Make Fun Of Actors Acting On AW & That Led To Their Dismissals.

Also Heard GR Was Diva at OLTL thats why he only lasted two years and was replaced
