    I have no idea about her range as an actress. I agree that she seems to play the same 'type' no matter who hires her, but what if that's the fault of the casting department and not the actress? They may have typecast her and we'd never know it. "We need an Andrea Evans type for this role."

    She may be just crying out to play Lady Macbeth, but no one will hire her to play it.

    Well, maybe not. :D

    Yeah......we'll go with with Evans being forced to play characters the same! Lol! I was gonna say Jessica Tuck, but I remembered how her stint on DOOL was so screwed up and now she's exiting GH after a bizarre tenure. Jensen Buchanan comes to mind......but she won't be doing ANYTHING for the next year....(ahem....).....

    I'm a big fan. I especially loved his version of Mason Capwell.

    They are hinting around on General Hospital that they may cast two roles for men in the 65-70 range--the unseen father of Dr. Finn and Detective Chase; and Dr. Jeff Webber (most famously played by Richard Dean Anderson) for a plot arc involving his daughter Liz Webber. I stand by my wish for Stephen Schnetzer as Jeff Webber, but Lane Davies would be an interesting choice, as well. GH's Alexis (played by Nancy Lee Grahn, who was SB's Julia) has been lamenting the fact that she always falls for the wrong men; if they were to bring Davies in as Jeff or as Finn and Chase's father, they'd be foolish not to have him do some scenes with her. I'm typically skeptical of soaps trying to reunite old couples in new roles that way (it generally fails to make lightning strike the same place twice), but for a short-term thing, it might be fun to watch.
