First Scene Saturday: Ned and Monica



I never got how Auntie Monica didn't recognize her Nephew Ned. Didn't Tracy ever share a photo or two over Christmas eggnog? How could Monica not know that the boy-toy she slept with was her nephew? 

It was a storyline that did take some risks and paid off with some really good fallout. Kurt McKinney initiated the role and passed it on to Wally Kurth. During the Dorman trial, Ned had to go on the stand and admit in court to the affair. If you ask me, I can see Kurt's boyish Ned with Monica, but definitely not Wally's. It was kind of uncomfortable to watch the court scene. 

What do you think will happen when and if Olivia finds out? (I am so crossing my fingers that this happens someday. Are you listening writers?) NOTE: A NIV fan on Twitter told me he already told her when they started dating! I don't remember that but it happened! 

NOTE from Karen:  THIS Was the times--LOL. Women had affairs left and right on soaps. Younger men? Who cared?

  1. Not a great actor, but awfully good looking. He and Monica had chemistry too. Guess Tracy didn't believe in showing pictures. Didn't make sense because the Q mansion has photos all over the place. I agree that a young Wally's Ned would not have worked with Monica.

  6. Ah the good ol days. :)

    "If you ask me, I can see Kurt's boyish Ned with Monica, but definitely not Wally's. It was kind of uncomfortable to watch the court scene."

    Yeah I couldn't see it then, with young Wally and Monica, but as they are older now, I can see it. :) I can feel the chemistry now with them.

    "THIS Was the times--LOL. Women had affairs left and right on soaps. Younger men? Who cared?"

    Hahahaha. Yeah who cares! :)

  7. Why did they recast Kurt McKinney? Nothing against Wally Kurth who clearly remade the role into his own, Kurt and Leslie Charleston had chemistry. A reminder what a fun character Monica used to be. I still laugh remembering that scene where Alan and Monica are in marriage counseling and the counselor gives them foam clubs and they beat each other silly.
