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.

Head writer Doug Marland originally planned to have the character Jackie Marler shot in cold blood by her schizophrenic sister-in-law Carrie Marler. When Jane Elliot was fired, Marland killed Jackie off in a plane crash, and had to scrap a long-term murder trial in which Carrie's split personalities would be revealed on the stand. A few years later, when Marland was writing for As the World Turns (1956), he got to adapt the Carrie story into the saga of Royce Keller, the man with the split personalities who went on trial for killing his sister, Neal.

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.
