Our Performers of the Week are The Young and the Restless’ Cait Fairbanks and Camryn Grimes!
These ladies are amazing on and off the screen! Our hearts broke as it seems like this could be the end of Teriah for now. Mariah pleaded for forgiveness from Tessa for her betrayal and was finally honest with her about hiding the fact that her life was falling apart. Tessa was hurt to learn that Mariah felt like she couldn’t confide in her about her problems and decided to do so with someone else.
For fans, Cait and Camryn’s performances were both equally devastating and hopeful. As much as it hurts to see these characters ripped apart, it is honestly fantastic to see this couple being written for like any other soap couple!
Our Honorable Mentions is Days of Our Lives’ Kristian Alfonso
Hope is back!!! (Hopefully!) After the brain chip removal surgery, Hope was overwhelmed with the weight of what had happened to her. She learned that the essence of Princess Gina had been in control of her body for almost a year and a half and that as Gina she had almost killed her beloved cousin Jennifer. Kristian’s performance was a stand out for the week as Hope had to work to understand what she - and her loved ones - had been through and all the time that she had lost. It was also really amazing as a fan to see Kristian in some incredible scenes alongside Melissa Reeves and Mary Beth Evans. That’s a trio that we will never tire of seeing together!
