— Will B&B’s Thorne be recast? Winsor Harmon tweeted over the weekend that the soap’s exec producer and head writer Brad Bell has decided to recast Thorne. Harmon last appeared as Thorne in September 2016. The role was originated by Clayton Norcross in 1987, who played the role for two years. Jeff Trachta took over the role in 1989 and stayed until 1996; with Harmon taking over the role in December 1996.
— Update Sept. 25 at 3:30pm: B&B has recast Thorne Forrester. GH vet Ingo Rademacher (ex-Jax) is will first air as the new Thorne in mid-to-late November. TV Insider broke the news this afternoon with an exclusive interview with Rademacher where the actor revealed he and the CBS soap were originally in talks to have him appear as the Forrester Estate Manager (the role which instead went to Francisco San Martin), “Brad Bell had a change of heart and wanted to give me a full-time, contract role,” according to his manager.
As for replacing Harmon, Rademacher had this to say: “You can’t try to be someone else, but I certainly hope to play Thorne as well as Winsor did. He’s really one of the nicest and most gracious people I’ve ever met. He tweeted over this past weekend that his role was being recast and I read the comments and a lot of people weren’t happy. There was a lot of support for Winsor, and rightly so. I said to my wife, “Wow, I feel kind of bad about this.” I mean, I know it’s the way things go in daytime, but this is a new experience for me. I’ve never stepped into a role that was previously played by someone else. I hope the fans aren’t too upset about this.” Check out the full interview here.
— Daytime Confidential reports that Tamara Braun is in talks to return to General Hospital — but not as Carly, the role she played from 2001 to 2005 — which is now being played by Laura Wright. This wouldn’t be the first time that a former Carly appeared on GH as another character. Sarah Brown (who originated the role in 1996) played Claudia Zacchara from 2008 until late 2009. Brown, Braun & Wright all played Carly during the show’s special 51st-anniversary episode in 2014.
DC is also reporting that Barbara Bloom has joined the GH writing staff. Bloom has previously held executive positions, both at the network level (ABC, CBS) and show level (One Life to Live and Port Charles) and even held a head writer stint at Port Charles. In 2003, Bloom was hired by CBS to serve for its Daytime division and later steered the network away from soaps, first with Let’s Make A Deal (which replaced Guiding Light in 2009), and then helped developed The Talk (which replaced As the World Turns in 2010).
