Jon Michael Reed reported in his newspaper column that Will Patton was offered a contract but turned it down because he was starting to get film roles and didnít want to be tied down to one part.

I never understood the love for Travis Sentell. Rod Arrants was one of the most unimaginative actors in daytime. He and the character were one-note and boring. Patton was a much better actor. He and Sherry Mathis were good together, and I can see why the writers went with the opposite of Travis. She and David Forsythís Hogan also had a lot of chemistry. Hogan was different and than Travis, too. But Sherry left and was replaced by the awful Louann Gideon,l - that was essentially end of Liza.

    I never understood what the writers had in mind for Liza Sentell and Kentucky Bluebird...He was such a complete opposite from Travis. Kentucky flew in on the canvas, and just disappeared....was it... more

        I enjoyed the soap opera roles of Rod Arrants. (I saw him in both Lovers and Friends and Search for Tomorrow.) I never cared for Sherry Mathis. I know that she was beloved by a group of fans, but I... more

      I liked this era . But Kentucky and Liza was not working and she went or him very soon after Travis was killed too.

        Kentucky was probably meant to be a big new character, but the audience probably did not accept him - so, as the writers changed, his character left. Speaking of Search for Tomorrow, I really wanted... more

          Rhonda Sue....well...we didn't need her to re-create her Lurlene Harper character from "Texas"...Her "out there" personality just did not mesh well with Henderson. Rhonda Sue was OK in small doses,... more

            I never viewed the character of Lurlene Harper, so the presence of this actress was similar to a breath of fresh air to me. And, since Search for Tomorrow was probably higher rated that Texas,... more

            Olympia getting dumped from the show was probably the best thing that happened to her career. If she were bound to the show she wouldn't have been able to do movies and we all know how that turned... more
