|Caroline (Peggy McCay) and Shawn (Frank Parker) Brady.|
McCay was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award earlier this year for her brilliant work during the Will and Sonny wedding episode, and continues to amaze as Caroline struggles with a neurodegenerative disease similar to Alzheimer's.
On Wednesday's episode, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) called Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) worried about the condition Caroline was in.
"It's not my time," Caroline told her late husband, Shawn, who appeared to her in a mirror at the old mansion. "My kids, they need me, they need me."
When Kayla arrived with Victor (John Aniston), Caroline broke her heart when she didn't recognize her daughter. All the actors involved in that sequence did a masterful job, including McCay.
There are many beloved performers from the past who have been overlooked for the Lifetime Achievement award by NATAS and the Daytime Emmys, and it's time to correct that, starting with McCay, who is still performing at the top of her game sixty-four years after her first daytime role.
