TV Guide Magazine: Soap fans love those rare friendships between characters of vastly different generations — Lila [Anna Lee] and Brenda [Vanessa Marcil] on General Hospital, Myrtle [Eileen Herlie] and Bianca [Eden Riegel] on All My Children, Nancy [Helen Wagner] and Katie [Terri Colombino] on As the World Turns. And then, most memorably, there was you and Frances Reid — the rebel biker and the donut-making granny! You two had a very special bond dating back to your whippersnapper days in the '80s. Why isn't this more common on soaps?
Reckell: It's so true. Bo and Mrs. H! I loved our scenes together. It would be great if we mixed it up more on the show these days. I don't see the kids on our show hardly at all anymore. And that's a shame because, you're right, the audience eats that up. But we do have Suzanne Rogers [Maggie] picking up the torch from Frances and working with the younger ones. It's good to see her step up and become our matriarch. She's the one with the history now.
The actor also opened up on filming upcoming scenes with saying goodbye to the beloved character.
