    She’s doing great! Even better than I had imagined when I suggested her (in an old recasting Taylor ideas thread)just based on her looks.

    She has the voice, the mannerisms, the personality. Really all like Hunter.

    Imo this is about as smooth as a recast can get.

      KA also has had wonderful scenes with JMW.
      That's true but not quite like this...I feel like she comes off very Disney like...and yes her and Steffy are fine but I just wasn't feeling the connection between her and Brooke the first and only time so far.

        I am ok if Taylor and Brooke don’t have major chemistry this time but it may take time . They may have to have several encounters to see how they really play off each other. True KA and TK had instant chemistry but I think sometimes it takes a while,

          KA is a great recast but I'm just not a fan of the personality switch...I mean can you imagine Taylor right now standing up to Bill the way OG Taylor did when she first found him in her house with Steffy?...calm and rational is good but come on I also like to be entertained...I see NuTaylor being punked by Quinn the same way Donna was and that's just not true to form to Taylor imo.

            Personally, I think being understanding to Sheila is actually smart. Certainly more clever than being confrontational- we all know how Sheila would react to that. Plus, this way Taylor gets to see much clearer what Sheila is up to. Good for everyone.
            I am sure this new version of Taylor will hold her own in a fight with Brooke . She is sweet and bubbly, but she doesn´t come across naive or like an airhead to me. I can imagine her acting rather deliberate in a fight, which IMO is preferably to angry shrieking 🙂.
            ITA, I couldn’t stand the bitter Taylor, not HT’s fault, it was the crap writing Bell jr. was giving her. She was really acting like a nut job. The 90s Taylor was sweet and kind and confident . So I’m glad to see that version re-emerging.

              Seems to be that 90's version but sweeter imo more like Donna than Taylor...I never thought Taylor acted nutty except for when they had her supposedly shoot Bill imo they went too far...I never thought she acted anymore nuttier than Brooke when she is being bitter and fussing at Quinn imo

                Well turning her into sloppy drunk, driving drunk, hallucinating about Brooke after she had Jack, and having her take up with Phoebe’s boyfriend was not the writing of Taylor in the 90s. Bell jr wrote that downward spiral of Taylor and I quit watching.

              I think the new Tylor is a good addition to the cast, but her wig is really getting in the way of her performance. The actress seems uncomfortable with it, too, and it seems to inhibit her work. Can't the stylists just use the actress's real hair, either cut or color it like old Taylor's, and leave it at that. As is, I find myself watching the wig, as if it were its own character, every time Taylor's onscreen. It's very distracting. Please somebody remedy this now so we can engage naturally with the actress's performance.

                Me too!!! And I believe she has way more chemistry with Ridge than Brooke does. I hope the writers see the writing on the wall and just let Bridge die for good. The ship has sailed on that couple IMO. I always loved HT but KA is amazing in the role of Taylor.

                  I've liked Krista since she played Billie on Days, and I think she does a good job. But yes, the excessive sweetness does seem phony to me, too. Despite having the mannerisms of HT down pat, this Taylor still feels like a totally different character from the Taylor I remember, and she feels like a stranger.

                    Exactly I totally agree it's the excessively sweet act that I don't care for...I like the actress and feel she has the mannerisms down but not quite the personality imo...I wish they would tone down the phony too sweet act with this Taylor and then she will start to feel more familiar instead of like a whole new character...the only thing that's a breath of fresh air is having Taylor back on screen besides the phony personality switch.

                      I love nuTaylor, and she has great chemistry with TK’s Ridge unlike Brooke.

I'm trying to get used to this version of Taylor but I need her to stop being so nice to Sheila! I mean she shot her and took her away from her family and I don't know why they are making her overly sweet and understanding of Sheila Carter...I know she's a psychiatrist but come on! some anger and resentment would be more believable and understandable imo.
                        I agree. I've had the same thoughts about her. This new Taylor is too sweet and too perfect and angelic. I want to see some fire and grit in her like we did with HT's Taylor. She is coming off as wanting to be the kind understanding therapist to everyone.

                          I'm happy that the Taylor character is back. Wished it had happened sooner, but she's here now. Will always have love for Hunter Tylo. Think KA is going a good job in the role. Not sure what some were expecting. Usually when a soap recast a role, they're taking the character in another direction. Don't know if that the case, only time will tell. While KA does look similiar to HT, you can't expect a carbon copy of the character. That's not fair to KA. She deserves a chance and time to make the role of Dr. Taylor Hayes her own. Question is: will Bell be fair to KA's Taylor? Or will he continue to show his Logan bias and throw everyone not named Logan under the bus? Can't outshine his pets is Bell's rule.

                            I get where you are coming from but if the character keeps with this phony overly sweet act Taylor won't be outshining anybody....I mean it's going to get very corny after awhile...I love Taylor but this fairytale princess act needs to go...I can't imagine this version of Taylor being able to really handle any kind of confrontation from anybody I feel like she would probably run and cry to Ridge or Steffy about it instead of handling it...I need to see some fire and grit from this Taylor because this version is not it and the Wig is definitely not doing any favors it makes her look like a joke...I feel like this is a brand new character not someone with a 30 year history on the show.

                              Sorry I disagree with the personality part...Og Taylor never quite came off this sweet imo...she had a little more grit to her personality and also her voice wasn't quite as soft... Hunters portrayal was more gritty and real...I just didn't like the way they did Hunter the last time she was on and I'm pretty sure that's why she turned the role down this time...I also felt like she was also mistreated by the characters also and I guess that's why you probably don't see her really interacting with anyone besides her family on the show...I think the mistreatment from Hope banning her from the family went too far imo that really didn't sit right with me.

                                I see what you’re saying. HT’s was edgier? Maybe? But I think it’s good for Taylor to be really soft right now after she was so high strung the last time she was around. I think eventually her tougher side will come out.

                                I think Hope and Taylor mended fences about all that because Taylor was at the memorial for Beth and they got along.
