NBC’s daytime series “Passions” reunites. The cast all came together for a Passions Fan Festival coordinated by Tray Burch and sponsored by Dave and Buster’s. You may remember the show blazing onto the scene back in July of 1999, ending in 2008. The show was very much ahead of it’s time as far as the written storylines, the technology that was used on the show and the editing. All is what the new shows today are simply being caught up on.
The Passions Fan Festival, took place at the Hollywood & Highland center. The event allowed fans to meet and greet with the cast. It was great watching everyone come together, some for the very first time since the show ended. The event started with the fans on one side of the room and stars on the other side of the room, but facing each other in mirror form. It was the coolest thing ever as fans got to watch the stars reaction as the stars got to watch fans reaction to the on screen Passions presentation. After the presentation, there was a Q&A followed by fan giveaway.
We got a chance to catch up with the stars of Passions. Taylor Anne Ramsey who played Kay Bennett told us “It feels so great seeing everyone, it feels like it’s a high school reunion. Ramsey was the original Kay Bennett and took to social media to reveal why she left the show.
When catching up with the cast members, when asked if Passions was to ever comeback would they sign on, everyone said they would. Despite that everyone has been keeping busy starting with McKenzie Westmore (who played Sheridan Crane) who has been hosting Syfy’s “FaceOff” and has her own make up cosmetics being released soon. Chrystee Pharris ( played Simone Russell) who is currently in the play “The Cause, My Soul in Winston-Salem”, was just on OWN’s “Green Leaf”, starred in TV One’s “Media”, and travels around to host motivational speaking engagements, Donn Swaby has a new film “The Two Professors”, Lindsay Hartley has been keeping busy and will be producing a film slated for a release next year, Juliet Mills has her new projects being released next year as well. All has been keeping extremely busy.
Fans has since launched a petition with a hashtag #BringPassionsBack. We hope to see the show come back, you can sign the petition by clicking here
