Bold is adding a new family to
shake up the Forrester-LoganSpencer clans. Meet the Fullers –
mom Quinn and her son Wyatt,
who’ll arrive in LA (towards
the end of 2014 on SA screens)
with some big secrets. Quinn’s
played by Rena Sofer (who’s
been on Loving, Heroes and 24),
while her son Wyatt’s played by
Darin Brooks, who’s best known
for playing Max Brady on rival
soapie Days Of Our Lives.
Shock exits!
Some big-name stars are leaving their soap homes.
She’s played Bold’s Dr Taylor Hayes Forrester for almost 20 years
but Hunter Tylo won’t be sticking around, confirming that she’s
off contract. While B&B says they’re still in contract negotiations,
Hunter says the negotiations are over and that she’s looking for
other roles. “I’m moving forward, opening up to the thousands of
acting roles available,” she said on Facebook. Also departing Bold
is Taylor’s TV daughter Steffy – actress Jacqueline MacInnes Wood
is taking a break but will be back. Another shocker is Young & The
Restless’s Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), who’s quit the soapie after 16
years, only saying, “It’s been one of the greatest rides of my life.”
STATESIDE SOAPS
Bold Eric’s uneasy when Brooke asks him to pretend to be her
babydaddy, while Bridget and Rick tease Brooke for sucking
up to Eric, unaware of what’s really going on. Liam tells Steffy
about the miscarriage, Taylor helps her grief-stricken daughter,
and Donna’s the piggy-in-the-middle between her sisters.
Days EJ and Sami have reason to celebrate, and John’s revenge
plans need a rethink. Will tries to save Nick but only manages to
get into trouble himself, and Hope reasons that the only way to
catch a criminal is to think like a criminal.
Y&R Paul warns Carmine, the doctored paternity test becomes
a problem for Nick, and Cane tries to fix things with Jill. Avery’s
not pleased that Dylan’s having a baby with Chelsea, and Victor
bullies Victoria when it comes to Adam. p

important men in movie history –
Steven Spielberg. Stevie’s film
kicks off in the middle of the
American Civil War, where we
find our hero in serious trouble.
His men are dying on the battlefield and his cabinet’s falling
apart while they argue over
whether or not slaves should be
kept. What follows is gripping
drama that actually happened…
more or less. You know how
Hollywood likes to bend the
truth a tad. And while we
know how things turned out in
the end (you know, John Wilkes
Booth shooting the prez and all),
that shouldn’t stop you from
watching this flick.
Why it’s hot: where do we begin?
Firstly, it’s a Spielberg film. And

And what about the cast? Sally

that’s a pretty talented bunch.
And they’re led by the incredible
Daniel Day Lewis. He’s mindblowingly good as Honest Abe,

Zombies rise from their graves in the United

the opportunity for a huge payday. He’s going
to drive everyone in town to a safe house and
charge them for the service. And that’s when
the bumbling fool’s plans go awry, not least
because the safe house is full of cops.
Why it’s hot: this is like Piranha 3DD – off-centre
but brilliant. It’s low-budget Brit humour at its
living-dead best. The comedy is cheesy and the
plot is holier than Swiss cheese, but it works
oh-so well, especially if you’re a sucker for dry
British gangster humour.

Cape Town-born
Justin Gabriel’s put SA firmly on the
WWE radar. And he’s coming home.
WWE SmackDown
Wednesdays e.tv 20:30
ocal is most definitely lekker, thanks to
one of the coolest guys around: 32-yearold South African WWE Superstar, Justin
Gabriel. He’s been sweating in WWE rings
for four years already, but you wouldn’t
know it when we call him up at the WWE
HQ in Connecticut, USA – he sounds like he’s still in Cape
Town and answers the phone with a “Hey, what’s up, bru?”
L
You’ve been wrestling for 13 years. Do you think that
you’ve established yourself in the WWE? Dude, if you
asked me that last year, I’d have said yes. It’s a different
“We’re tough,” says Justin.
“But the injuries are sore!”
12 June 2013 tvplus
story now – I’ve had a couple of injures that kept me out
the ring. And not competing means less screentime. But
there’s a lot for me to still do in my career, so I’ve got time.
You’re a second-generation wrestler – your dad wrestled
in SA under the name The Pink Panther… I thought about
following his lead with a name, but being in the ring, you
play a version of yourself and you just evolve.
So when did you decide that wrestling was your dream
job? I was about nine – I played the WWE Royal Rumble
game on Sega and told my mom, “Ma, this is my future.”
And what’s your earliest wrestling memory? Wow…
probably going to the events with my dad. I got to sit in
the front row and watch it all live. I also met Hulk Hogan
as a kid and I didn’t know who he was. Later on I was, like,
“Hey, I met that guy!”
www.facebook.com/tvplus
So was Hulk Hogan
one of your wrestling
heroes? Yes, but my dad
came first. Then it was the
old-school pros, like “The
American Dream” Dusty
Rhodes, “Mr Perfect” Curt
Hennig… the guys that set
the standard in the industry.
You said that you’ve had
a couple of injuries. Which
was the worst? I think the
big thing is that I haven’t had
surgery, you know? Two years
ago, at WrestleMania, I was in
a pre-show match and tore all
the ligaments in my left arm.
Bru, it was ridiculously sore
but I didn’t have surgery. I let
it heal naturally, and while
it’s fine now – I can do all my
moves and workout and all
that – it’s not the same.
A match at WrestleMania’s
obviously a big deal… Ja,
totally. Every wrestler wants
to be there, to wrestle on the
big stage. My perfect match
would be at WrestleMania…
something extreme, like a
Tables, Ladders, Chairs match
where I can flip and fly and
jump and show off my skills.
You’ll be home at the end
of July when the WWE tours
SA. What kind of reception
are you expecting? It’s been
about three years since I was
www.twitter.com/tvplus
home and I’m really
excited. I think
the fans are
going to be
awesome for
all the guys and
we’re amped to put on
shows for them. I’m looking
forward to seeing my family
and friends and being home.
It’s a long time off (fingers
crossed), but do you have
any retirement plans? I don’t
think that far ahead, but I’ll
definitely be moving to Cape
Town. I’ll probably just chill
there on Clifton Beach, hey.
People think that WWE’s fake.
Ja, that’s a big misconception.
It’s theatrical, yes – it’s like a
sport soap opera. But the
fact is that it’s dangerous.
Bru, when we get injured, it’s
sore. We tell fans not to copy
our moves at home, school…
wherever… for a reason.
Lastly, have you ever been
in the ring with someone
and wondered “why me?”
Definitely. The one that sticks
out is Randy Orton. He’s the
complete wrestler and he can
be vicious. One minute he’s
all cool and stuff, then he
snaps and you’re in trouble.
Randy’s dangerous – everything that he does is methodical and calculated. p

Steely-eyed Jeffrey Donovan and his castmates
return for their sixth and penultimate season of
Michael Westen action. And guess what? They’re
up to their eyeballs in spy drama. It starts off with
Michael searching Miami for Anson, a bomb
threat and Fiona being arrested and interrogated.
And that’s just in the first episode!
Why it’s hot: Season 6 was confirmed a month
after season 4 aired in the US – clearly the fans,
producers and big wigs had a lot of faith in the
cast, writers and director. And they were right –
the spy drama keeps you tuning back in, there’s
enough action to keep James Bond happy and
there are a lot of pretty people looking good
for the cameras. All in all, a kick-ass show.

Just as soaps tweak their sets
and wardrobes and give their
lead characters a hot new look
to keep up with the times, we
at tvplus also need to make

feedback on various platforms
and pondered all the inputs.
And just like the big reveal on
a reality show, this is our first
revamped edition. We now
offer even better value for your
money with more stories, loads
of behind-the-scenes exclusives
and the most comprehensive
and up-to-date TV guides you’ll
find anywhere. Have a look at
our handy guide on the right
to tell you where you can now
find all your favourites. We

the show! Drop us an email

EDITOR’S LETTER
It’s fresh. It’s funky. And it adds
a whole lot of va-va-voom to
the only TV mag in South Africa.
With a new look and loads of
added content, we welcome you
to our exciting new-look tvplus,
packed with more stories, trivia
and spoilers than ever before.
Here’s what to look out for…

And all of your favourite regular sections are still there – from our
Hollywood correspondent Margaret Gardiner’s glamorous red-carpet
exclusive interviews (page 11), to behind-the-scenes and informative
set visits (pages 8 and 9) and Q&As where we get your favourite TV

SEEKING SOOKIE
Please tell me, tvplus: when will we see season 6 of True
Blood? KAZ, WESTERN CAPE
The good news first: True Blood 6 will be back on M-Net Series
in July. With more Sookie and Eric and blood, this season will
continue with the usual vampy sexiness. However, judging by
the trailers we’ve seen over the last couple of weeks, this season
could very likely be the final nail in the True Blood coffin. Critics
have already blasted the upcoming season, claiming the show has
reached a new low and has become too over-the-top and ridiculous.
Let’s just hope that new showrunner Brian Buckner will be able to
save Sookie and the gang before the series bleeds out.

Hi tvplus, what happened
to the Dr Mol Show and

TANYA COLEMAN, DURBAN Many viewers were caught
off-guard when Dr Michael
Mol suddenly made way for
a new doctor, comedian Dr
Riaad Moosa. Not only did
the show change doctors,
it also changed names to
Medicine’s no

for Dr Moosa
Doctor’s Orders. But don’t
worry: these changes won’t
affect the content. You’ll
still get your weekly dose of
health tips in much the same
way as previous episodes. So
where is Dr Mol exactly? The
SABC says that he’s focusing
on a number of business
ventures outside of TV that are
keeping him busy. We can’t
wait to see what Dr Mol’s got
up his sleeve.

HIT REVERSE
While SORAS is mostly used to make
characters older, there are a few rare cases
where it’s used in reverse. All My Children’s
Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) has been made
younger no less than three times. When
the show premiered in 1970, Erica’s birth
year was 1954. But in 1993, writers changed
it to 1956. Writers again decided to make
Erica more youthful in 2002 and she’s now
known to have been born in 1962.
GRIPPING VIEWING IS WHAT COUNTS
But, as the saying goes, age is only a
number. And whether these numbers add
up or not (they don’t – we’ve checked), we
shouldn’t be too fazed about it. As long as
we get our usual dose of daily drama, we’re
happy with our characters – regardless of
how they’ve aged.
SORAS IN SA… SOMETIMES
Local SORAS cases are few and far
between. Here are two examples…
tThere aren’t many kids on 7de Laan
to start with, but they’ve managed
to SORAS Nadia (Simoné Nortmann).
She was four years old when we
first heard of her in 2009, but now, in
2013, she’s back in Hillside and she’s a
rebellious 16-year-old.
tMuvhango recently SORASed Busi
(Omuhle Gela) and Vusi (Raphael
Griffiths), who’ve gone from kids
to teenagers overnight. These new
characters are because additional
cast members were needed for the
soapie to transition to air five days
a week, instead of four. p

Age defying
TWEAK THE TEEN
So why do US soapies SORAS their kids so
often? Firstly, it’s much easier getting an
older kid to learn lines than a six-year-old,
although there are exceptions like Days’
Ciara Brady, who’s played by 10-year-old
Lauren Boles. But more importantly,
teenagers can bring more drama and
steamy romance to a storyline. It can go
too far though and leave fans scratching
their heads. Take Y&R’s Billy Abbott (Billy
Miller) as an example. Born in 1993, the
youngster quickly morphed into a teen
and in 1999 he was 15 years old. Do the
math. Billy Miller, by the way, is 33.
