As previously reported, NBC's "Days of our Lives" began searching for a "legitimate" native Australian actor to portray the new 13-week minimum contract role of Finn, a doctor doing his residency in Salem, specifically looking to gain skills as a surgeon, under the guidance of Dr. Daniel Jonas (Shawn Christian). In partnership with Australia's Arena TV, a division of Foxtel, the daytime drama series announced today that it has narrowed its search down to three finalists: Sydney actor Alexander Bruszt, Sydney actor/musician Andrew Steel and Gold Coast actor Tom Dalzell, who is already Los Angeles based.

With a cryptic message written on a piece of paper gripped tight within her dead cold hands, Courtney Sloan (Kelli Goss) ended her lively run on CBS' "The Young and the Restless" on Monday, April 6 as close friends, and those that loved her, mourned their loss. Courtney's murder was just another in a growing line of deadly twists in the Abbott cabin crew storyline. As fiancé Noah Newman (Robert Adamson) tried everything in his power to resuscitate her, the young man was forced to come to grips with the reality that his happy path to wedded bliss had been derailed.
Remember in 1998 when Carly (then played by Sarah Brown) stepped away from Michael's stroller for the tiniest of moments which led to his kidnapping by the hands of Tony Jones, who previously was led to believe Michael was his before Carly proclaimed the child to have been fathered by Jason? Fast forward to 2015, we find Sonny (Maurice Benard), seemingly in the Tony role, being kept away from his child by an all grown up Michael (Chad Duell), who tells his adopted father, "Step away from the stroller now" in this week's promo for ABC's "General Hospital."
If a year ago someone bet me that a modern-day soap opera would not only put their African-American characters in a front burner storyline that was deeply entrenched in social issues, which had nothing to do with the color of one's skin, race or ethnicity, I'd owe that person plenty of money right about now.
When news first hit the web in August 2012 of Duke Lavery being very much alive on ABC's "General Hospital," it not only became a trending topic in the United States on Twitter, but also worldwide. Nearly three years later, it looks like the character will be heading back to the grave as portrayer Ian Buchanan is said to have recently learned that the writers have plans to off the character once more. It would be a huge mistake on their part as it would defeat the entire purpose of resurrecting the character in the first place.
