  1. I noticed you mentioned that Ferrante leaked his audition tape. It was actually Myles Forster as was reported and shared on multiple other Soaps News outlets. I can’t imagine that is looked too fondly on by the networks or Soaps and think it unfair that it was attributed to Ferrante. May want to fact check that, and set the record straight.

    Hoping they expand Ferrante’s stay in Salem after having seen him in other roles.

      Thank you Nic C., I actually did know that, and I didn’t realize the way I wrote it implied that Ferrante leaked it. Will correct.
