Ben Platt on Befriending Beanie Feldstein at 14

  • Variety
For Variety’s latest issue, we asked Ben Platt to write a tribute to Beanie Feldstein, one of 50 people to make our New Power of New York list. For the full list, click here.

I have been basking in the glow of Beanie Feldstein since I was 14 years old. We became instant best friends on the first day of freshman year, our shared seventh-period lunch setting us on a predestined path of lifelong love. Beanie’s unique brand of magic has been apparent to everyone from the start, even in our inaugural joint performance of “Guys and Dolls” at school in which she more than rose to the occasion portraying soprano ingénue Sarah Brown, when we all know that Beanie, a world-class comedian and belter, has Adelaide in her veins.

Beanie’s power takes many forms: unending benevolence and warmth, undeniable charisma and effervescence, and the deepest possible well of compassion and empathy.

Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (‘B&B’) joins an elite Daytime Emmys club by achieving this rare triple crown

Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (‘B&B’) joins an elite Daytime Emmys club by achieving this rare triple crown
This year Jacqueline MacInnes Wood earned a Daytime Emmy nomination for Best Actress for her role as Steffy Forrester on “The Bold and the Beautiful.” It’s her fourth nomination overall but her first as a leading lady, which puts her in elite company. It makes her only the fifth woman to achieve the triple crown of nominations as a younger, supporting and lead actress. But she still hasn’t won. Is this her year?

MacInnes Wood achieved all of her nominations in the span of just seven years. She picked up a pair of Best Younger Actress bids (2012-2013), which she lost to Christel Khalil (“The Young and the Restless”) and Kristen Alderson (“General Hospital”), respectively. When she returned to the Emmy lineup in 2018 she had aged out of the younger category (the cutoff is 26), so she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress, but lost to Camryn Grimes (“Y

Morgan transplant: Should ‘Days’ alum Billy Flynn replace Bryan Craig on ‘General Hospital’? [Poll]

Morgan transplant: Should ‘Days’ alum Billy Flynn replace Bryan Craig on ‘General Hospital’? [Poll]
Should “General Hospital” recast the presumed-dead Morgan Corinthos with a recent “Days of Our Lives” alum? There are no official reported plans to resurrect the character as of this writing, but a Twitter exchange prompted speculation about the possibility of Billy Flynn moving from Salem to Port Charles to pick up where Bryan Craig left off. What do you think? Scroll down to vote in our poll at the very bottom of this post.

Mob scion Morgan was born on-screen on “Gh” in 2003, the son of crime boss Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and Carly Corinthos (currently played by Laura Wright). He was portrayed by a few different child and teen actors over the years before he was rapidly aged into young adulthood with the casting of Craig in 2013. Craig stayed with the show until 2016, and ended up winning two Daytime Emmys for Best Younger Actor (2016-2017), thanks in large part

Will former ‘General Hospital’ star Chloe Lanier win back-to-back Daytime Emmys like Sarah Brown and Julie Berman

Will former ‘General Hospital’ star Chloe Lanier win back-to-back Daytime Emmys like Sarah Brown and Julie Berman
Chloe Lanier exited “General Hospital” last fall, but she might not be done with the soap just yet, at least not at the Daytime Emmys. She won Best Younger Actress last year for her role as the scheming Nelle Benson, and she’s pre-nominated again for that performance. Will she win again for her conniving ways? “Gh” is the most awarded soap in this category’s history with nine victories, and Lanier would be the third from the show to win back-to-back.

Sarah Brown was the first consecutive winner for “Gh,” prevailing in 1997 and 1998 for playing Carly Benson, who turned out to be Nelle’s adoptive sister. Brown won a third Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in 2000 when she aged out of the younger category (the cutoff is 26), and she left “Gh” shortly thereafter. The role of Carly was then played by Tamara Braun (2001-2005) and Jennifer Bransford (2005). Then Laura Wright

Facebook Rolls Out Fact-Checking Operation In The UK; Partners With Charity Full Fact

  • Deadline
Facebook is rolling out a fact-checking operation in the UK and has partnered with fact-checking charity Full Fact.

This comes a couple of years after the social media site launched the plan in the U.S.

Fact Check will review and rate the accuracy of content on the platform and will flag posts, links and videos that have been marked as false to users.

It also comes two months after politicians from nine countries slammed Mark Zuckerberg’s decision not to appear in front of a British parliamentary hearing to answer questions on fake news and misinformation – a session that included a surprising reference to Casablanca and a bizarre tale of how a bikini-searching photo app lead to Facebook’s latest privacy woes.

Laura Wright Reveals Why She Originally Turned Down the Role of Carly on General Hospital (Exclusive)

When Laura Wright joined the cast of General Hospital in 2005 as Carly Corinthos, she knew that the role was the perfect fit for her, but it almost didn't happen! “At first, I turned it down,” the actress confided to Soaps In Depth, “because I didn’t want to leave the East Coast, and I was nervous about moving my family.” At the time, Wright was living on the East Coast and starring as Cassie on the CBS sudser, Guiding Light, a role she’d been playing since 1997. “When my friend asked why I was so nervous to say yes, I told her I was afraid to leave Gl. It’s been my family. It’s a part of me. Then she asked me if I thought I could do this part and I said, ‘Oh hell yeah. I was made to do the role!’ That was my answer. After playing
