Leslie Stewart was atrocious, and I didn't care much for the actress' portrayal of either.Question: Does anyone like the combination of actress/character of Leslie Stewart? I just find the actress/character cheesy...not sure if it's the actress and/or character.
I remember really disliking actress/character Patricia (Swellen's mom). Then I saw her in a moving part in an hour-long series drama (don't remember which one) from I guess the 80's. I watched because of curiosity about the actress, from only knowing her as Swellen's mom. And she was excellent, touching and believable.
So, is it at times difficult to separate the person from the role? I would say not if you're familiar with the person's work and abilities. For a one-off on an unknown actor/actress, I think it's more difficult.
I kept thinking, with all the other women JR could and did have, why did he want that awful white haired woman so badly? On a sex appeal rating of 0 to 1o, I'd say Leslie Stewart comes in at somewhere between 0 and 1.Leslie Stewart, ugh. She came from a town named Boresville.
Even Peter Richards in the storyline of his affair with Sue Ellen? I found seeing a woman of that age with a kid Peter's age somewhat perverse. I really don't know what they were thinking. I don't know who they thought that would appeal to. It wouldn't have been quite so perverse looking if the actor had at least looked a little older. Still, Peter thinking that Sue Ellen would leave JR and marry Peter, move into that tiny little apartment with him and start a family with him showed how far gone Peter was - completely delusional.all these characters were perfect, but some actors played really badly
