    Congratulations, Mark Teschner! I couldn’t agree more that he is an amazing casting director. He really hit the bullseye with the new Dillon & Kiki replacement. He found excellent child actors who could play young Patricia, Luke & Bobbie Spencer while holding their own against GH heavyweights Tony Geary & Laura Wright (talk about a risky episode). And, IMO, the additions of Curtis, Andre & Jordan have blended quite seamlessly into the cast. Incorporating established actors with new talent is not easy. Time and again, Teschner proves that he can spot the right person for the role.

    Even when casting is spot on, the writers need to take notice of an actor’s strengths. Teschner isn’t responsible for storylines. But, I do think he picks actors who can go a lot of different ways, giving the writers more to work with. He’s not perfect. Shari Belafonte is not the best replacement for Mayor Lomax IMO. Time has not smoothed over that portrayal. But, I’m convinced getting Rebecca Budig for Hayden Barnes resulted in a more complex character than they planned because she does sympathetic ambiguity so well.

    Mark Teschner USED to be a great casting director–not so much in the last few years.

    Yes, Ken Corday won an Emmy for Killing Will. THAT was the episode KC and his musical team submitted and won for!

    This would have slipped under the radar, if Days facebook leaker hadn’t publicized it yesterday. Oops!

    We now know that Ken Corday and his musical team created original music for Killing Will – and that Days paid for a real 43-piece orchestra to play it!

    Now, put that together with the fact that Days decided NOT to pay for Will’s in-laws to attend his funeral, and you have an awkward fact for those who like to think that all the anti-gay messaging so evident in the Kill Will Daysaster was accidental:

    Days paid for new and orchestra-played music to accompany the gruesome murder of their gay legacy maximally-back-burned character! And then they DIDN’T pay for his in-laws to attend his funeral.

    Conclusion: they knew exactly what they were doing, and the anti-gay messaging was totally deliberate and planned. (This has of course been obvious to a great many from the beginning because of the sheer number of anti-gay and anti-gay family strikes since Corday employed Griffley. This latest revelation just adds another ugly fact to the gaynocide evidence pile).

    Yes that sucks royally and I hope that gets changed. I view these awards as our ‘reward f’or fans’ continued support and viewing of the soaps. It’s a major disappointment( to put it mildly) grrr not to see it aired anymore. Personally my position now is if it can’t be aired for the fans to see ,why should we care who wins what anymore?
