'One Life to Live' alum Forbes March is a 'Gentleman Farmer'
After years spent modeling in Europe and New York, March (ex-Nash, One Life to Live; ex-Scott, All My Children); ex-Mason, As the World Turns) worked in film and television, becoming known for a recurring role on the popular soap One Life to Live. He discovered Sullivan County on a family camping trip and returned for the fly-fishing whenever he needed to decompress from his acting gigs. Eventually, he bought a house in Jeffersonville and took refuge there when the recession hit along with his Italian wife, Vanessa, and their two kids, Marina, 15, and Peter, 8.

According to a court order filed Friday, the children must return to Los Angeles, and their mother will keep their passports. A hearing at the L.A. Superior Court – where Rutherford, Hermes, Helena and Giersch or his representative are required to be present – is scheduled for June 15.

Acting roles accumulate for young local thespian, Connor Kalopsis
Less than two months after filming ended for the pilot for a new television show, The Grinder, starring Rob Lowe and former child star Fred Savage, Fox Broadcasting has ordered the series to start next fall.

“It’s amazing,” said Kalopsis (Chase, Days of our Lives), the 11-year-old son of former London city councillor Nancy Branscombe and businessperson Ken Kalopsis.

“When you’re filming, you don’t think it will ever get picked up because you don’t want to get your hopes up. I’m just so happy.”

Actress Karla Mosley on the response to her 'Bold and the Beautiful' story
"The best responses are from people who tell me that I’m telling their story. Also from fans who say their hearts have opened to the transgender community or that they are thinking about things they never have before. There are Trans artists who have paved the way for many years before me and continue to do so. If I am in any way a part of increased awareness, love and rights for people – then I’ve done my job."

Former 'The Young and the Restless' head writer and executive producer Maria Arena Bell named new inductee to Newport Harbor Hall of Fame
Bell offered advice for current aspiring writers who attend her alma mater.

"The most important thing is to read, watch great television and films and observe everyone around you," Bell said. "It's so much the role of the writer to take in everything and distill it into something that has power that people can relate to. Enjoy your time at Harbor, you may write about it later!"

Jonathan Jackson's 'Nashville' experience gives the actor’s band a boost'
“There’s the hesitancy some people have toward actors who do music or musicians who act,” Jackson says. “There’s a stigma there, but we’ve used that from the beginning. It’s made us fighters. We have to go out and prove ourselves. It’s given a little underlying punk edge to the band.”

Jordana Brewster on Chocolate Pizza, ‘Uplifting Podcasts,’ and Being Well
"I think my views have shifted from like, graduate from college, get the next job — very material goals — to less materialistic things. I think since having a kid I've become less stressed and crazy and type A, which I think is a really good thing. I just realized that you kind of need to be happy, so make yourself happy."
