Back in May, I posted my wish list of actors who I was hoping would make a return to Guiding Light before September 18th. (At the time, we knew Ed and Holly were coming back, so I didn’t add them to the list.)
I went back to compare my list to who’s coming to say goodbye to GL, and two of the ten are returning: Melissa Hayden (Bridget) and the amazing Lisa Brown (Nola).
We’re also slated to see Jay Hammer (Fletcher) and Morgan Englund (Dylan) in the last week.
(Okay, it seems TOTALLY obvious to me what may happen in the last week, and why some of these folks are coming back, but I’ll keep my mouth shut for spoiler’s sake.)
Considering time and budget limitations, I think GL has really done a great job of selecting key, important characters to come back for one last visit.
Ed and Holly were on my “must” list, and I am pleasantly surprised about Nola, though I think it would have been magnificent if Quinton could have also returned. (It would have gone a long way towards erasing the memory of their breakup.)
I still think a visit from India would have been magnificent, and so easy to work into the story. And of course, the biggest absence in the collective heart of GL fans is the absence of Ross Marler.
