Anna Holbrook and Agim Kaba Guest in The Best Installment of Far From The Bay This Summer


Now here's a Far From The Bay installment I can get crazy excited about! Another World veteran Anna Holbrook, alongside As The World Turns hunk Agim Kaba guest star as the relatives of Peter Garrett's (Kristos Andrews) adoptive mother Claire (Marie Wilson). Check out the amazing chemistry between relatively new actor Andrews and these soap vets. Boy is going places!

All summer long, we've followed an amnesiac Peter's journey, bumping into familar faces from other web series and sudsers, and while that's all been cute, I have to admit that I'm ready for Peter to head back to The Bay, so the show can pick up with some of those juicy stories featuring Days of Our Lives legend Mary Beth Evans as Sara Garrett and her deliciously dysfunctional children— that's the small, interwoven story I fell in love with.

I still need to know whatever happened to the Carl Hutchins lookalike dude who was blackmailing the eldest Garrett son Brian (Dylan Bruce)? What about Marly's (Martha Madison) explosive relationship with Sara, or her marriage? These are questions I am hoping will be answered in Season 2 of The Bay.

The Bay creator Gregori Martin is definitely one of my webisoap heroes. Seriously, the man works harder than anyone else in the game, but I am itching to see him tighten his narrative, focus on fewer characters and guest stars, less exposition about the past and really make things pop off for the sudsy, addictive Garretts in the present day. I have total faith that he can accomplish this!

Until the next season of The Bay, however, it looks like the last few installments of Far From The Bay are finally about to set it off. Check the latest webisode after the jump!

    Wow — this is really good stuff! FAR FROM THE BAY has gotten better and better each week and this week does not disappoint! Anna Holbrook, who I love on Another World, is awesome (and looks terrific too!). So glad to see her back onscreen. And Agim…I hope we get to see him again!

    I agree with alstonboy. Kristos is definitely sponge worthy! Wish he was on the network soaps. Many in his age bracket could learn. He would definitely get the emmy nod, IMO. Enjoyed Anna and Agim! Love seeing them back on my screen.

    I’m enjoying Far From the Bay.

    I’ve enjoyed all the guest stars. Michael O’Leary, Ilene Kristen, Tonja Walker, Anna Holbrook and Agim Kaba.

    I do wonder how the California people are reacting to Peter’s disappearance, and I think there should maybe have been some of that going on concurrently with Pete’s New York search for Claire.

    How’s Sara taking Pete’s disappearance, for example? How about his sister Marly? Aren’t they searching around for him, worried?

    It would have been nice during one of these glimpses into Pete’s search for Claire, if his California family was tormented by the way he left and the way he feels like Sara’s a stranger. I mean, it isn’t just affecting Peter. It’s affecting Sara too, and the rest of Pete’s family.

    Oh, Kristos is absolutely easy on the eyes, but his performances have been great, too! I love the originality of the way this story is being played. Step by step we get closer to the answers. And Anna looks fantastic!

    I am guess any of these ex-soapsters who are appearing on the web soaps would love the opportunity to be part of AMC or OLTL once they go to the web. Even if I lose some favorites, I’d be excited to hear if Anna Holbrook or Agim Kaba were joining the cast.

    I never really liked Jamie Lynn Bauer as Laura Horton on Days. Anna Holbrook, who looks a lot like Jamie, would be fantastic in the part IMO. She was my favorite one of the crazy Frame family on Another World.

    soap armageddon, Anna in my opinion is much prettier than Jamie Lynn. But she is way too young to play Laura by 20 yrs. But then she was a little young to be playing Sharlene as well. But I would be willing to sacrifice the decades to see her on my screen again in any role. I can not believe noone has ever picked her up.
