Our Performers of the Week are Bold’s Courtney Hope (Sally) and Heather Tom (Katie)!
Courtney and Heather added to their Emmy reels this week as Sally found out that she only has a month to live. The way that Courtney portrayed Sally’s devastation and denial mixed with Heather’s emotional pleas from Katie made for a powerful set of scenes. As the storyline continues, we know that these two incredible actresses are going to slay us all!
Our Honorable Mentions are:
Days of Our Lives’ Mary Beth Evans (Kayla)
I may be just a tad biased, but Mary Beth Evans is one of the greatest actresses in daytime television! Her ability to make you feel exactly what Kayla is feeling is a gift. And this week, when she found herself in the familiar situation of helping “Steve” after he was wounded, had her reeling. She had to lie to the man who loves her and then deal with Stefano’s rudeness as he paraded as Steve. She took the opportunity to lay into him about his behavior and treatment of his loved ones. And even Stefano was a bit shaken by her words. We cannot wait to see what happens after she learns the truth about his identity this week!
General Hospital’s Finola Hughes (Anna) and Michael Easton (Finn)
Finola and Michael showed out this week as Anna and Peter battled over Peter! Finola’s raw emotion as Anna, while she did everything to protect the child that was left behind, was incredible. And equally matching her power was Finn’s need to protect her and his daughter from the danger that Peter brought with him. Hughes and Easton are certainly a powerful onscreen duo!
