"I love Priscilla," states Executive Producer Aaron Spelling. "She was in SUNSET BEACH for us, and we brought her on this show. But our first choice was Lourdes. Unfortunately, she had another commitment [at the time]. Priscilla knew that. When we found out that [Benedicto] became available, we jumped, and we're thrilled to have her.
"I was actually doing another pilot, so I tested for both [pilots] at the same time," explains Benedicto. "That pilot didn't go, and I was lucky to have been asked to come in. It's the most flattering thing."
Garita's fellow ex-BEACHer, Jason George (ex-Michael), will be receiving a lot more airtime on the serial. "Jason George is going to have a much bigger role on the show [after the pilot]," Spelling confirms. "He becomes one of Casper's best friends on the show, and he will also have a romance."
7.29.00 - August 8th issue of Soap Opera Digest:
Ingo Rademacher may not wind up missing the work, but he will definitely miss the excitement of daytime. "I almost got into a fight at the [ABC] Emmy party," he affirms, referring to a much-talked-about altercation with AMC's Josh Duhamel (Leo) over Duhamel's girlfriend. "She walked by and I said, 'I think you're really cute. I know you're here with your boyfriend; I don't want to cause any problems.' I would've said the same thing if he was there. I wasn't making a pass at her. Five minutes later, he came by: 'You were looking at her all night and then when I leave for a second, you go over.' I said, 'I was just being friendly.' Then he started shoving me. I was like, 'Don't touch me and walk away. You're out of line.' I slammed him once, he fell down and I had three guys on me: Michael Saucedo [Juan, GH], Don Jeffcoat [Joey, OLTL] and Mark Consuelos [Mateo, AMC]. It felt like high school."
Duhamel fires back, "This whole story is ridiculous. I didn't even know who the guy was. I'm not a jealous guy, but when somebody shows that much disrespect to you... It all started at the Soap Digest Awards and I never said anything. I let it go. But then we were at the [Emmy] after-party and he was doing it again. I got up for a second, and he walked up to her. As soon as I came back, he left. I just walked up to him and said, 'Listen man, if you want to talk to her, go ahead, I don't care.' He goes, 'What are you talking about?' If the guy [says] he pushed me over and I fell, that's bull."
Bygones, concludes Duhamel. "It's over with. I wish him the best of luck."
