Syfy Renews Victor Webster Vehicle 'Continuum'

Great news for fans of Syfy's back-from-the-future series Continuum. The action drama starring Days of Our Lives grad Victor Webster  and Rachel Nichols has been picked up for a 13-episode second season, according to TVLine

During its first season, Continuum averaged 1.4 million total viewers, with 540K landing in the 18-49 demo (where it ranked No. 10 among all cable fare in its time slot).


Bree Williamson Takes Shelter on Syfy’s Haven

Former One Life to Live star Bree Williamson is joining one of my favorite Syfy series, Haven. After spending years playing a character in need of therapy on OLTL, Williamson will portray Haven’s resident shrink, Claire. TV Line confirmed the news, revealed by Haven story editors Lilla and Nora Zuckerman, in an interview with the Wormhole Riders’ podcast. 

ATWT Grad Jennifer Ferrin Joins Syfy Pilot Rewind

Syfy has cast former As the World Turns star Jennifer Ferrin in the two-hour pilot Rewind. According to Deadline, Ferrin joins Keisha Castle-Hughes, Robbie Jones and Keon Mohajeri in the time travel based vehicle about “a team of military field operatives and civilian scientists who must use untested technology to travel back in time to alter past events in order to change the future and avoid a devastating terrorist attack.”

Since leaving ATWT, Ferrin has appeared in such primetime series as Life in Mars, Royal Pains, The Good, Fringe, White Collar, Nurse Jackie and The Cape.

DC EXCLUSIVE: Terri Ivens Dishes NOH8, Big Snakes and How She'd Bring Simone Back Before The All My Children Finale

While the recently-returned and not-quite-dead Dixie Cooney (Cady McClain) may be the one, great love of Tad Martin's (Michael E. Knight) life on All My Children, many fans would argue the former cad had his raunchiest romps with Simone Torres! 

I recently caught up with the hilarious, gorgeous Terri Ivens, who played silly, sex bomb Simone from 2001–2006, to chat about her upcoming spread for the NOH8 Campaign, big snakes, reality series, SyFy movie monsters (She's starring with fellow soap alum Rib Hillis in the upcoming Piranhaconda) and the unique manner in which she'd like to see Simone pay Tad one last visit before All My Children wraps this Sept. 23.

Daytime Confidential: What made you want to be part of the NOH8 Campaign?

Terri Ivens: My love for @cosmopaulitan and @jasonspitzer79 on Twitter. Shameless plug here: Follow me @terriivens[Laughs]! I believe our decisions are made based in love or fear. Many times when things are unfamiliar to us, we react in fear, whether it’s the instant we see a spider or someone cuts us off on the road. I choose to be one percent better in my choices everyday. Even if I fall short, I’ll be over 100 percent wiser next year! NOH8 is exactly that. No fear, no hate, just love.

DC: What was it like working with that giant snake during the NOH8 photo shoot?

TI: You mean the enormous albino python? It scared the bystanders out of the studio [Laughs]!! It was calmly explained to me, if anything went wrong, I’d be the last one to know!  Seriously though, Jules [Sylvester], the owner of, is the leader in movie-making creatures from big scorpions/spiders to snakes. It was an amazing experience to survive.
