    So happy for Jeff! He’s too talented not to have been picked up for something new. Y&R’s loss.


    CeeCee replied

    Oh, yes, Caroline. I wish ‘Ronan’ would go to Port Charles, collect ‘Phyllis’ and both make a run for Genoa City. They were so hoooot together.


  2. Beth says:

    Jeff is a very nice guy and a very talented actor. I wish him all the best. Nice to see a Daytime alum doing well on Primetime!

    Jeff Branson knows how to ACT! This new TV show is lucky to have him, and daytime TV should regret letting Branson slip through its fingers…


  4. fginaspy says:

    Cool! I wish Supergirl was available on Hulu. I do not get the major networks or cable.


  5. Lillian says:

    He reminds me so much of actor Michael Shannon.

    Supergirl’s a cute show. Glad to hear he’ll be on it.


  8. Charday says:

    I’ll never forget him in the movie, “I Spit on Your Grave” (2010 remake). His character died in the most awful way imaginable.

    I’m so proud of you Jeff. I’m an positive you will rock this roll. Just don’t forget about us little people. Love you. Linda
