COMMENTS FROM THE PANEL:
Connie Passalacqua Hayman (Marlena De Lacroix): You might think his Bo Buchanan is all Mr. Grave and Serious as the gruff police chief today, but when he first came on to OLTL in 1979, his Bo was all charm, an irresistible man to a long series of leading ladies (and the ladies at ABC Daytime who adored Woods). A daytime original who has always been underrated as an actor.

COMMENTS FROM CO-STARS/CO-WORKERS/INDUSTRY:
Patsy Pease: (worked with Woods on DAYS OF OUR LIVES) Diligent and earnest about quality work. He makes it easy to focus because he is extremely present and always "in the moment".

  3. I can't say if he's underrated, but he's listed above Stephen Nichols, Vincent Irizarry, Nic Coster, Scott Bryce,Rick Hearst, Gerry Anthony, et al? I have one word to say about that: ridiculous.

  4. Kellye, I disagree, he has managed to make intersting after 30 odd years, that is "greatness".

  5. He should not be this high up and i'm a fan. Peter Simon can act rings around Bob Woods and that he is higher than A Martinez well you must not have been watching the same tv shows as me.
