  1. I love Don Hastings and have for many years. I miss seeing him and the other veteran actors being involved in current stories. I know it may be a matter of economics, but it's still a waste and it's a shame they cut short the one story line he has had recently. He is a very talented man and is another unfortunate victim of the times. I think this is the first interview I have ever heard of him. Now isn't that a shame?

  2. Thank you gMatt! I too find it strange that the soap press has virtually ignored this intelligent and funny living legend. Stay tuned for the full transcribed interviews coming up here.
