Soap opera stars celebrated ‘May the 4th Be With You Day’ – aka ‘Star Wars Day’- in a variety of ways. ‘B&B’ Pierson Fode [Thomas Forrester], ‘GH’ Nicolas Bechtal [Spencer Cassadine] and ‘DOOL’ Alison Sweeney [Sami Brady] were among the stars who shared photos with fans.
Pierson Fode shared a funny photo-shopped pic with Instagram followers. Dressed in a black jacket, jeans, leather boots and sporting dark shade, a scruffy looking Pierson is holding a lightsaber and standing in front of several Jedi Knights. “May the Fode be with you!” Pierson joked.
Standing in front of a bigger than life portrait of Darth Vader in battle on the side of a wall outside the Fox Studios you can barely make out Nicolas Bechtal! The pint-sized actor, dressed in a black t-shirt and jeans in the photo, Nicolas wrote, “May the 4th be with you #starwars.”
Promoting her new book ‘Opportunity Knocks,’ Alison Sweeney took a little time out of her busy day to pose with R2D2 and CP3O at the ‘Rachael Ray Show.’ The actress, author and director wrote on Instagram, “Happy #maythe4thbewithyou day!!! #starwars #wbw #rachaelray #opportunityknocks.”
‘Days of Our Lives’ star Tamara Braun [Ava Vitale] got in on the fun of ‘May the 4th be with You Day’ too. The ‘GH’ alum [Carly Corinthos] photo-shopped a couple of lightsabers into a photo of herself with singer/songwriter Robert Dobbs and wrote, “May the 4th be with you @iamrobertdobbs! Use the force for good and please follow @PERdashMISSION #perdashmission #starwars #jedi #dogood #begood #whatsyourmission #startyourmission.”
The cutest and smallest celebrant of ‘Star Wars Day’ was ‘The Young and the Restless’ Jessica Collins [Avery Bailey Clark] three-month-old daughter Jemma. The Daytime Emmy winning actress dressed her daughter up as R2D2 and posted the photo on Instagram. Jessica had a surprise in store for everyone on ‘May the 4th be with You Day’ – she married long-time love Michael Collins in what appears to be a secret ceremony!
