Former Another World co-stars Alice Barrett and Stephen Schnetzer, who played beloved couple Frankie Frame and Cass Winthrop on the classic NBC soap, reunite on the Monday, April 13 episode of The Following, airing at 9 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
In the episode, titled "Flesh & Blood," the FBI closes in on a suspect whom they believe to be the culprit behind the latest murders, but Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) believes the killer is still out there, leading him to dig deeper into dangerous territory. Meanwhile, Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) undergoes evaluation in the days leading up to his execution and a new threat tries to cover his tracks.
Schenetzer is playing Dr. Malcom Tower and Barrett is playing Jan Tower. Dr. Tower is Gwen's (Zuleikha Robinson) boss, and Jan is his wife. Gwen schedules a dinner with Ryan and the Powers so Ryan can meet her boss.
"It was in every way an enjoyable experience, especially since working with Stephen was, as they say, like riding a bike," Barrett tells Serial Scoop. "We were comfortable with each other, our gracious hosts on set, Kevin and Zuleikha, and the crew immediately."
The actress enjoyed working with The Following lead Kevin Bacon, who started his career on the daytime soap operas Search for Tomorrow and Guiding Light.
"Kevin was surprisingly talkative, given how much work he has to do every day" Barrett shares. "We talked a lot about soaps, as Kevin started his career on Guiding Light. We joked about our soap niches. If I remember correctly, Kevin's was 'teenage drunk,' Stephen's was of course, 'Cassanova' and mine I think might have been most original, 'psychic private investigator.' "
Barrett would love to work with Schnetzer again.
"I can only say that nothing would make me happier than to work with Stephen again on a regular basis," she says. "I think we do it well."
