I just read the nominating rules for the Cineplex Legends Award. Number 2 states that one must be a Canadian citizen or resident in order to nominate a candidate. This process is tied in with a contest, which is probably the reason. That disqualifies US fans.

David Selby and Susan Sullivan have another, much stronger connection - Falcon Crest. David Selby played Richard Channing, and Susan Sullivan played Maggie Giobertti. Their characters fell in love and eventually married, only to have Maggie catch her wedding ring in the drain at the bottom of the pool, causing her to drown. This occurred right after their wedding. It's nice to see them doing something together again.

And Susan Sullivan was in Dharma and Greg with Mitch Ryan, the first Burke Devlin on Dark Shadows.

The Cineplex Vote section for the Legends Award is not taking in my vote: something is wrong. So, here's wishing the very best for our beloved JONATHAN FRID (Rest in Harmony) that he will be Inducted in the Canadian Hall of Fame this year 2014. His an amazing Major talent in Theatre-Stage and of course TV. God Bless.
