is trouble brewing at pentonville?

The In Depth Story: When Nelle landed in Pentonville a year ago, she was all on her own in the clink. But that’s not the case anymore. Back in June, the bored blonde was thrilled to run into villainous Ryan in the infirmary — and he was quite intrigued by her! These two are formidable all on their own, and while Ryan wants to get back to Ava, they both have revenge on the brain. And in spite of the serial killer’s massive ego, Jon Lindstrom believes his character would easily team up with Nelle to exact payback on those who wronged them — and not just because they’ve bonded over both having had their kidneys stolen! “Nelle and Ryan are very powerful and convincing people!” “If it served his purposes, you…

heather tom is headed for trouble!

The In Depth Story: The gig doesn’t start until late September, and while it’s still unknown how it might affect her presence on the soap during that time period, Tom’s confident she can make it work. “B&B has been amazing about working out the schedule for me,” she tells Soaps In Depth. “It’s been great, and it’s all been really informative. I’m learning so much!” Tom, once ONE LIFE TO LIVE’s Kelly, isn’t the first Daytime Emmy winner to take a foray into directing. GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Kimberly McCullough (ex-Robin) completed the Walt Disney Television Directing Program several years ago after exiting her soap, and has gone on to helm shows like THE CONNERS, THE BOLD TYPE, ONE DAY AT A TIME and PRETTY LITTLE LIARS.
