0 January 13th, 2010 Erica and Ryan on AMC– Not a Cougar storyline and not long term!



More news out today from yesterday’s attendees from the press at the Television Critics Association tour in Pasadena, California.   On the panel from AMC included its main stars, Susan Lucci and Cameron Mathison who opened up on Erica’s “Cougar” storyline in which she has now been to bed with Pine Valley’s younger leading stud.   Lucci stated, “I think in the beginning, the press thought it was a cougar storyline. I didn’t know what to expect.  I don’t think the audience believes in it as a long-term relationship, but I don’t think the characters necessarily do either, but it’s a genuine feeling for each other. So it is different from the expected.”

Lucci’s co-star Cameron Mathison pointed out,  “I had a story meeting, and the first thing they said was ‘It’s not a cougar story. We’ve been mutually going at this. She’s not taking advantage of me. I love it. I’m crazy about it. I think it’s different. It’s often a slightly older man and a younger woman in the relationship. In this particular situation it’s reversed and it’s also shocking. I mean, why not? I think there should be a sense of equanimity like that.  I have some people who are absolutely crazy about it. They see how much sense it makes. They love the two of them together. I hear that a lot. And then there are fans that cannot see Ryan with anyone other than Greenlee, and then you know, Erica maybe with Jack.”
