I’m so upset they keep giving that damn Emmy to Tom Pelphrey! Also, who picked out that picture of Caitlin Van Zandt. It makes her look like a serial killer. Log in to Reply Regan Cellura August 11, 2008 No offense to the 5 chosen but Kirsten Storms is a HUGE oversight IMO. Log in to Reply Mark August 11, 2008 @ Regan: It’s only New York based actors. Kirsten Storms is on General Hospital and don’t they film that show in Hollywood? So glad to see Van Hansis on this list. Now all TBTB at ATWT need to do is to give him some airtime! I think he only had like 3 minutes last week. Log in to Reply Regan Cellura August 11, 2008 Ahhhh…sorry didn’t realize it was only NY based. LOL… I’m still ticked off at Kirsten’s being left off the emmy nom list. Log in to Reply Luke Kerr August 11, 2008 I did think it was interesting that no AMC actors made the list though. Log in to Reply season1217 August 11, 2008 Yeah, Luke you’re right. What about Cornelius Smith Jr., he is under 30, right? Log in to Reply elvara August 11, 2008 These 5 choices are a joke. And to answer the poll question- None. They are all annoying. Log in to Reply season1217 August 11, 2008 Van Hansis is a joke?!?! Then may I ask, elvara, what would be your 5 choices for actors under 30 that are on NY based soaps? Log in to Reply elbugten August 11, 2008 Did they mean the actor you tune in every day to watch or the actor who has the most potential to be a break out star (as in “watch out for this one, they’re going to go far”? IMO, those are two different things. JP is one of my favorite characters/actors on OLTL and one of the many reasons I watch, but Kristen Alderson is a triple threat, as she can sing, dance and act and has been doing so since infancy. She may be cutting her teeth on OLTL but someday, I feel she’ll be on Broadway, in movies or primetime. Edited to add: I just read the article, I guess they mean the star you tune in to watch. In that case, my vote goes to JP. But you’re right, it’s odd that no stars from AMC made the list, although who’s in their under 30 crowd? Chrishell Stouse? Log in to Reply feminist09 August 11, 2008 What about the guy who plays Frankie Hubbard on AMC and Tika Sumpter on OLTL. Thay are good actors!! Log in to Reply elvara August 11, 2008 season1217, I didn’t know I had to justify my comment…Yes I happen to believe that Van Hansis is one of the most overrated actor on daytime. I find him ordinary and boring as he!!. JMHO As for naming other actors, I don’t have any one. I haven’t been impress. I do think that Billy Miller(ex- Richie Novak AMC) who is under 30, was great. I’ll follow him to Y&R. Log in to Reply daysfan65 August 11, 2008 I watch GL everyday simply to see Caitlin (who I voted for) and Marcy Rylan. I kept saying I might tune out, but continue to watch for these two. I think all these actors and actresses are hugely talented and I enjoy them all! Log in to Reply terrifictam August 12, 2008 I voted for Kirsten Alderson. I definitely see her in Broadways or a Primetime tv show in the future. I love watching her on OLTL. JPL is great to watch but I don’t really ever see him leaving OLTL. I don’t really watch GL but when I do I love Marcy and Caitlin. How can you not love VAN??? He’s incredible. He needs a meatier front burner storyline. He’s shown the chops now let him use them. Log in to Reply sole-starrandcole August 15, 2008 I think the choices were right on! Kristen is an amazing talented actress and has a very bright future ahead of her. Also, JP is one of my favorites as well, and would have an outstanding career outside of OLTL(but I hope Kristen and JP stay at OLTL for a long time, it just wouldn’t be the same)!
