The Young and the Restless - The Best Trio in Daytime - Jason Thompson, Peter bergman & Gina Tognoni!
Forgive me if I seem partial in any way! Daytime have some really great actors and actresses. In soap history some of the best has great the soap opera genre with their talents but currently I'd like to acknowledge the work of the newest trio in daytime Peter Bergman [Jack], Gina Tognoni [Phyllis] and Jason Thompson [Patrick].
Our opinion may not matter to some people but when you have great actors you should acknowledge them. Like the old saying says 'give unto to Caesar what is due unto Caesar' and that's exactly what we are doing. Bergman, Thompson, and Tognoni over the years of working in daytime soap operas have given their best in whatever storylines they're given. And in our opinion and record they are still one of daytime's best!
Their work this week on 'The Young and the Restless' has proven why they should be recognized. Watching Jack reel from learning the truth of his brother's affair with his wife was just heartbreaking. It was good material but our hearts could not have been broken if Bergman didn't deliver the way he did. We acknowledge how on top of his game he was, he delivered those raw emotion as we watch Jack display utter disgust learning the truth. And then the aftermath of the reveal could not have been better, seeing Jack vow revenge was worth it!
Then there is Thompson who from 'General Hospital' to 'Y&R' keep showing viewers why he's worth watching. That fight between Jack and Billy was soooo good - it had me on the edge of my seat. I was just waiting to hear Billy declare to Jack "I slept with your wife" but it wasn't so. Again, Thompson showed us why he is one of daytime's finest actors.
And how could ever not acknowledge this stalwart - Gina Togoni! From 'One Life to Live' to 'Guiding Light' and now 'The Young and the Restless', Tognoni kept delivering top notch performances. Walking away with a daytime Emmy two times for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series was certainly deserving. Tognoni this week had me crying eye water literally as she begged Jack to forgive her. Do we see another Daytime Emmy coming up? She certainly deserves after those gut-wrenching performances.
This is certainly the trio to be watching now! They all proved why they are daytime's best delivering top notch, A class, gut-wrenching, heartbreaking, emotional performances all throughout one week. Thumbs up to Tognoni, Thompson and Bergman!
