For DL Edge of Night Fans, Fall of '81 episodes of Gavin Wylie looking especially hot now on-line

It's the story arc where Gavin played by Mark Arnold is on the run from cops for the murder of Sky Whitney's bald-headed butler, Gunther. During this period where he's on the run, Gavin/ Mark is unshaven so he's sporting facial hair which looks sexy on him imho. The hair on his head is longer than usual for his character since he's not getting haircuts and he's often either shirtless or wearing one mostly unbuttoned showing a nice swatch of chest hair in his sternum area.

MrEdge80s youtube channel is uploading episodes daily in chronological order from that period you can watch. These MrEdge80s uploads even include this message-Tapes courtesy of Mark Arnold.

How fun! I envy you getting to watch these episodes.

I was glued to my set during the Sky Whitney saga. One of the Top 5 best stories Edge ever did!

Just wait to you get to the episode where Raven says, "Nevermore." But that won't be until about March 1982.

Mark Arnold went on to play hero Joe Perkins on Santa Barbara for about four months (Nov 1984 to early March 1985).

Also you might enjoy this uploaded by MrEdge80s,tape courtesy of Mark Arnold.

It's a 1982 episode of Philadelphia's's KYW Channel 3 local talk show, 'People Are Talking' hosted by Maury Povich with Edge of Night co-stars Mark Arnold and Lori Loughlin as guests. Mark's parents even make an appearance in the studio audience since they live in the area. FYI, Mark grew up in the Philly suburbs.

My first boyfriend in 1986 looked exactly like Mark Arnold. So dreamy!

God I thought Gunther was SO HOT !

R5, Gunther was hot. The actor that played him, David Froman, died back in 2010 at the age of 71.

Show didn't realize how much Gunther added to the story until they killed him off. So, they bad to bring him back as a never before mentioned twin brother, Bruno.

But Sky insisted Bruno go by the name Gunther and everything was back to the way it was before.

Who looked better in a Speedo? Gavin/ Mark or GL's Kelly Nelson (John Wesley Shipp)

No doubt JWS carried off the Speedo better.

Yeah, sorry, JWS was the King of Daytime Speedos.

Humm, Larry certain can give JWS some competition.

now this thread is a reason to love DL... yet another The Edge of Night thread. This topic pops up every once in a while and they are a hoot.

Man, Mark Arnold in a speedo - very, very nice.

I used to watch the last few years of this show when I was in college - and have been recently watching the episodes in chronological order on YouTube.

Back then I had a thing for the actor who played Schuyler Whitney because I thought he had a hot ass.

gunther was sort of a latino telly savalas

LOL, I remember the Larry Lau Speedo shots too.

I still say JWS was better, but I'm pretty sure Larry's pictures were in my spank bank, along with several others, plus International Male catalogs. LOL

Larkin Malloy in his Edge days was super sexy.

I could just drool over him for hours. I probably did.

by Anonymousreply 18September 14, 2023 5:59 PM

He was hot on EON but became weirdly not so hot on GL.

[quote]He was hot on EON but became weirdly not so hot on GL.

Very, very true.

I've often wondered about. I was so turned on by Sky Whitney and so turned off by Kyle Sampson. I wanted to like Kyle Sampson but just couldn't warm up to him.

Maybe its because Sky was written to Larkin's strengths while Kyle was not. Definitely not.

But Larkin clearly felt the same way since he bolted the moment his GL contract was up.

R1 I bet they were saving that 'nevermore' for just the right moment; what was it, do you recall?

I agree on Sky /Jefferson Brown being a top story -- of all soaps.

I preferred Gavin to Kelly or Preacher; the hottest guy was Chris Jarrett, Damian Tyler. That hair; that chest, those arms that face.

Raven banned Gavin and Jodie and others in the theater storyline from using the theater, saying they could return Nevermore.

I think the actor who plays Rafe on Days was on this show.

by Anonymousreply 24September 14, 2023 10:06 PM

R24 He was not. I think you're thinking of Mark Arnold, who sort of looks a bit like Galen Gering who plays Rafe (and was on Passions).

[quote]I think the actor who plays Rafe on Days was on this show.

Galen Gering?

He would have been 13 when Edge was canceled in 1984.

What role do you think he played on Edge of Night?

by Anonymousreply 26September 14, 2023 10:09 PM

Gary Coleman was on EDGE.
