COMMENTS FROM THE PANEL:
Connie Passalacqua Hayman (Marlena De Lacroix): Always supremely watchable (and sometimes a hoot) as Asa on OLTL. Asa was a total daytime original, and Carey's acting had real endurance. Watch him in his old movies such as Calamity Jane and Mister Roberts.
Patrick Erwin: An engaging, talented actor whose strength made us care about Asa long after his many bad deeds and fleeting marriages stopped surprising us.
Roger Newcomb: A real legend who made a lasting impact on ONE LIFE TO LIVE and the whole entertainment industry. Despite all his film success, my favorite non-soap role from Carey was his guest appearance on ALL IN THE FAMILY, where he played Archie's macho friend Steve who turned out to be gay.
