10 Best Soap Opera Newbies of 2013



No. 10: Robert Scott Wilson, All My Children

All My Children's casting department won the showcase showdown when they found The Price is Right model Robert Scott Wilson for the role of Petey, err, Pete Cortlandt. Wilson brought charisma, charm, maturity and one killer bod to the part of Palmer (the late James Mitchell) and Opal's (Jill Larson) son.

Not even Wilson could save Pete's insipid relationship with virginal Celia (Jordan Lane Price) on the internet soap. However, the digital sparks Wilson and fellow outstanding newbie Brooke Newton created when Pete and Colby were sexing up our second screens, had us needing to download an app for cooling down our laptops, tablets and smartphones.

Forget The NSA or PRISM, Todd is Watching Llanview on One Life to Live


Matthew (Robert Gorrie) dropped by Bo (Robert S. Woods) and Nora’s (Hillary B. Smith) with his laundry, and to share a meal. What he didn’t realize is the meal was a set up for him to spend time with Destiny (Laura Harrier). Matthew didn’t seem too happy when Destiny showed up at the door. The two started arguing about Drew. 
 
Matthew called David (Tuc Watkins) to come by as reinforcements. David didn’t want to, because he was going to show Dorian (Robin Strasser) moves “he learned on the internet.” When he hung up with Matthew, David asked Dorian to come with him. All of a sudden, the family dinner got a whole lot bigger.

Why did I feel bad for Matthew? He’s a deadbeat dad, but yet, I still felt empathy for the situation his parents keep putting him in.

Todd (Roger Howarth) dropped by Shelter to visit Blair (Kassie DePaiva), who didn’t have time for him. However, he insisted he had something he needed to show her.
