As part of his efforts to bring an oral history of “” to page via the upcoming book “Llanview in the Afternoon: An Oral History of ‘,'” entertainment writer has been posting numerous interviews and snippets of interviews from his time speaking with writers, producers, cast and crew members as they told of their experiences working on the ABC drama series. One such interview/story was posted earlier today on the books official Facebook page, which highlighted a moment in the life of (ex-Renee Buchanan).

“I hadn’t worked in about six months, I think, and I came in to do these five or six lovely scenes with Bob Woods [Bo Buchanan] at Asa’s [] grave. They were wonderfully written, and we had a beautiful time shooting them,” says Elliott, who last appeared on the soap in August 2011. “I left and I thought, ‘I don’t really want any more.’ I was kind of dreading being called back in for one last hurrah for some big crowd scene where Renee would have maybe one line, because I didn’t want to come back again. I felt like I had been able to say goodbye in the most beautiful way.”

    Patricia Eliot is a marvelous actress;her scene with Bo after Asa’s death was so moving. I am really sad to think of never seeing Rene again. Certainly no one else but Ms Eliot is Rene Buchanen.

      Her name and her character name are RIGHT THERE in the article, one half inch from where you typed your comments. You managed to misspell Elliott, Buchanan and Reneé. That’s impressive. I recommend going back to school so you avoid humiliating your children by your white trashy illiteracy.
