in memoriam

When longtime GH makeup artist Donna Messina passed away on December 6, not only was it a sad day in the soap’s makeup and hair department, but from the production offices to the crew on the set to the actors’ dressing rooms, everyone was affected. Weeks later, there was still a sadness throughout the studio. Messina had been nominated for a whopping 12 Daytime Emmy Awards, winning half of those (more than almost any actor on the soap). And more importantly, she had the love and respect of the cast, the producers — everyone with whom she came into contact. That being the case, Soaps In Depth has heard from many of the stars who have sat in her makeup chair, as well as her last three executive producers, all of…

The In Depth Story: Since leaving the soap last summer upon his contract’s expiration, Zamprogna (who returned for GH dad Maurice Benard’s anniversary episode in November) has made it clear that he’s willing to appear on a recurring basis if he’s available.

In the meantime, onscreen wife Emme Rylan is hoping that Lulu will face a few more challenges before a possible Dante return. “There are so many things they can do right now,” she declares. “Lulu really misses him.

what’s the deal with shiloh?

IN That’s Coby Ryan McLaughlin playing Shiloh, who introduced himself as Drew’s old friend, Hank, before he was revealed to be the selfhelp guru behind Kristina’s Dawn Of Day group… who also has a strange connection to Sam’s past! Fans of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS may have recognized the actor as Ashley’s helperturned-blackmailer, Andrew, from his stint on the CBS soap back in the fall. The GH newcomer also boasts a healthy list of primetime credits, including a run on PARENTHOOD during its final season and a recurring role on the crime drama GRACELAND. In addition, the multi-talented performer is half of the musical duo The Cowboy Killers. If we know anything about soaps — and we do! — we have a hunch that viewers will discover more about Shiloh/Hank and…

On Instagram, he shared that he “just asked this beautiful girl to spend the…
