Guiding Light: Rumors, Rumors, Rumors



Boy oh boy. The Guiding Light rumors just keep coming. First there were rumors of Ricky Paull Goldin leaving, which turned out be true. Late last week TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco reported rumors that Marcy Rylan may be considering leaving. Now comes rumors reported widely on message boards accross the internet that ABC is interested in snapping up Beth Ehlers whose contract expires in May. On top of all this it is being strongly rumored that Guiding Light has been renewed.

Assuming that the renewal rumors are true the question is quickly becoming "How many big names will be left"?

I wouldn't be surprised about Beth Ehlers, and I would love to see her on OLTL (the only ABC soap I watch). I've been a GL fan for years, but what they've done to my Harley (my favorite character on the show) is disastrous! Sad

Bring Kevin back to OLTL (Dan Gauthier hopefully) and bring Beth to OLTL as Kelly. Although, if the writing for OLTL doesn't improve quickly, she may be jumping from the frying pan into the fire!

I'm really concerned about the Marcy Rylan possibility. Dinah, Mallet, and Lizzie were what got me hooked on this show. Dinah and Mallet are in the crapper so if Lizzie leaves and there is no more Bizzie I'm not sure what incentive there would be for me to watch other than the site and the podcast. lol

From a soap fan perspective I agree with you Luke and hope Marcy stays, but from an industry observer perspective she'd be crazy to stay! That girl has star potential written right across her perky little nose! I caught her in one of those endless Bring It On sequels on the Family Channel a weekend or so and she was the best thing about the movie!

Ellen Wheeler and David Kreizman have to go now!!!!!!!!

If all the talented actors leave who will be left on the show?

Maybe all of these actors are hating the way the show is filmed. I know it gives me a headache. I saw it briefly this morning and had to change the channel because I felt like I was a little too close to Marina. The camera was practically up her nose. It is very distracting. Perhaps, the cast doesn't like the changes.

Marcy has tonnes of potential. She just keeps improving. I rarely tape GL anymore. I did for a period of time when Luke and Lisa were loving it so I wanted to watch to see if all the hype was worth it. There is some stellar acting and then on the other hand some very underpar actors.

I'm worried that soaps aren't going to be able to pay for all their stars Sad. Without good acting it doesn't matter about the sets and storylines.

If Beth Ehlers leaves maybe GL could pick up Martha Bryne since both soaps are P&G shows? I don't mean to sound ageist but there aren't a lot of leading lady roles out there for actresses such her who have in the industry as long as she has.

However, if Ehlers leaves and should Chappell decided not go past her current year contract (I think that it is) GL could afford to bring in MB and give her a front burner s/l.

Geez, RPG, Beth Ehlers, and Marcy Rylan are my favorite GLers, and they may ALL be gone? Yikes. I only hope that BE moves to AMC and gets with the new Jake Martin.

I was wondering when BE's contract was up since I've been hearing rumors about her leaving. If ABC wants her, it would be so funny if she went to AMC. Ricky and Beth reunited on another show? Wow! I wonder what that would be like...

I would hate to see Marcy leave (I love her Lizzy) but if Beth Ehlers goes I won't shed a tear. I think it would be liberating for GL to be rid of Harley Cooper. I know that may be an unpopular opinion but that is how I honestly feel.
