COMMENTS FROM THE PANEL:
Connie Passalacqua Hayman (Marlena De Lacroix): His Mason Capwell on SANTA BARBARA was a daytime classic. Part Shakespearean hero (that diction), part primary representative of the weirdness and personal eccentricities of Bridget and Jerome Dobson (who created and wrote the show), Lane was never less than divine as Mason. He and Nancy Grahn as the ultra intelligent, ever battling Mason and Julia were among the best daytime couples ever.
Alan Carter: Even when the show was dreadful, and it often was, Lane Davies brought magic to the screen as the snotty, snooty Capwell heir.
Patrick Erwin: Davies brought Mason Capwell, one of the smartest, most complex characters ever to grace our TV screens, to life. His strong, uncompromising take on Mason made SB must-see.
COMMENTS FROM CO-STARS/CO-WORKERS/INDUSTRY:
Louise Sorel: (worked with Davies on SANTA BARBARA) Lane Davies and I worked on SANTA BARBARA and I also played Gertrude to his Hamlet. He has always been a theater person and devoted to his craft, as well as a wonderful, funny talent and sweet human. We spent time studying French in the South of France. He's very special.
