Val­ley Boy

ABC Soaps In Depth - - In Depth -

Back when James Pa­trick Stu­art (Valentin) ap­peared on PA­CIFIC PALISADES, he got to work with liv­ing le­gend Joan Collins (of DY­NASTY fame)… al­though they quickly hit a bump in the road! “Joan is re­ally nice, but suf­fers no fools,” Stu­art

shares with a laugh. “She ac­tu­ally liked me enor­mously… un­til the mo­ment she stopped talk­ing to me forever.” The trou­ble started when Collins tried to make small talk with a young Stu­art, who’d grown up in Hol­ly­wood and the San Fer­nando Val­ley with his Bri­tish dad, folk rocker Chad Stu­art. “I was play­ing an English char­ac­ter, so she said, ‘Mas­ter Stu­art, where are you from?’” he re­counts. “I said, ‘I’m from En­cino… Where are you from?’ She goes, ‘I’m from Lon­don, you twit!’ and never spoke to me again. She had no in­ter­est in me what­so­ever af­ter that. What can you do?”

Stu­art once faked an

accent for Collins.
