ATWT Opinion Article
Re-Cast, Re-Cast, Re-Cast
All right everyone, I am officially annoyed. (You're probably
wondering whatís bugging me this time.) What was the point of re-casting so
many characters lately if theyíre going to be leaving the show so quickly. Maddie Coleman (Kelly Barrett) and Lucy Montgomery (Sarah Glendening) joined
the show around December 22, 2008, and I have to say I was very, very
receptive to them. I had wanted Lucy to come back so much, I thought it was
about time for her to stir things up. I have to say I was hoping Peyton List
would come back, because to me she just is Lucy, and no one could even
compare to her. When Spencer Grammer came on the show, I immediately wanted
her off because I didnít buy her idea of who Lucy had become; everything
about Lucy became some sort of a joke. So when I found out that Sara Glendening was coming, I told myself it was time that I gave someone a
chance, and to be honest I didnít have to try. I immediately liked Sara as
Lucy. I could see that Lucy had grown up a lot, and I was looking forward to
the opportunity to see how she dealt with other people besides Johnny. Iím
soo annoyed that they cut her off the show, even if her character was not
supposed to stick around....come on ATWT, you could have extended her
contract. (See, I do give the show props!)
Now letís talk about Maddie Coleman. Even now Iím not too sure what
to think of this actress or how she plays Maddie. I guess I see her in the
role, but then, I donít know, something doesnít fit. Since the moment she
came into town, she has only had eyes on getting Casey back. That was her
only intention in coming to Oakdale....what like there was nothing else for
her to do, just fawn over him. I think they could have explored a wide range
of things for her to do, but instead they did nothing.
Jade....enough said! I tried, people. I tried soo hard to
like her, but I just canít. Please someone tell me why sheís on the show and
why I should like this actress...cuz I have nothing. I think they should
have brought the original actress back, because I donít buy the new Jade. I
do think itís cool that we're going to see Jade with her father Derek, and
thereís a lot to explore there.
I canít believe Iím saying this, but.....I LOVE The New Craig. I
love everything about him. I never thought I would like any re-cast of
Craig, because no one compared to Hunt Block. Jon Lindstrom is amazing. He
blew me away from the first time he appeared on my television screen. I love
the way he portrays pure evil and humor; thereís really a nice balance.
His cunning smile, and the way he jokes with everyone... I LOVE HIM....I just
have to say it one more time I LOVE HIM. Itís really hard for me to
explain, but itís like he portrays Craig a lot like Hunt Block, and I
applaud him for that. The last re-cast Craig (Jeffrey Meek) just tried to
change Craig too much for anyone to handle, and I welcomed his departure.
Please keep Jon around for a long time!
Well, this is just my opinion
