Guiding Light takes place in the fictional Midwestern town of Springfield. In its early years the stories centered on the middle class Bauer family, but later the wealthy Spauldings, Chamberlains, and Lewises, along with the working class Reardons and others, took their own places of prominence, though the Bauers remained the heart of the show.

When long-time cast member Charita Bauer died in 1985, it took a year of persistent audience demands to write an off-screen death for her character Bert, in 1986. When Michael Zaslow left after developing ALS, the audience did not like the actor who was cast as his replacement. Roger Thorpe was written off in 1997, but audience demands persisted for a proper tribute, especially after Zaslow's well-publicized death in 1998. Roger Thorpe was finally killed off in 2005, off-screen. Soap legend Mary Stuart, who joined the show in 1996, died in 2002. In 2006, her character, Meta Bauer, was sent on a vacation to Nova Scotia.

You look radiant.
Thank you. I was out taking a ride on Buzz's sow.

Grant's portrayal of Phillip over the years was great. I am still holding my breath for the day he come's back to Guiding Light. I know that GL cut a lot of the best cast members last year, but I hope they didn't cut out us fans of the best actors who portrayed not only Phillip Spaulding, but Ross Marler and the cutting back of Rick Bauer, Holly and Blake. Please come back Phillip- I have been a fan of Guiding Light since before you and Rick came back from boarding school and Rick changed his name. Grant, you are greatly missed, as is the character you portrayed, it is not just my hope, but that of my mother's and sister's that you come back soon. You are fondly missed, and we can't wait till you walk into the board room of Spaulding, unannounced and get into it with Allen. The story line for your return could be the best GL has had in years.
