Irises: The Unofficial Beverlee McKinsey and Carmen Duncan Home Page


Of Interest to All Iris Fans

The Another World Home Page: This is the best soap opera website I have ever seen, and there is quite a bit about Iris. Be sure to check out Iris's character profile; several vintage Beverlee clips in the audio section; and even a list of the names Iris' maid, Louise, gave to her plants in the miscellaneous section.

The Another World Picture Gallery: Includes a number of rare pictures of both Beverlee and Carmen as Iris.

P&G Classic Soaps AOL Video Channel: Classic P&G soap episodes from the late 1970s and early 1980s available for download online, including the first 70 episodes of Texas ("starring Beverlee McKinsey") with more apparently being added on a regular basis.

The World of Soap Themes: Vintage opening and closing sequences of virtually every daytime drama to air in the past fifty years, including Another World. You can catch a glimpse of Carmen in Iris' Snowflake Ball costume in the early 1990s opening, and don't miss the original Texas opening sequence, featuring the voiceover, "Texas, starring Beverlee McKinsey!" Also, if you subscribe to the premium membership, be sure to check out Carmen's heartbreaking performance at Mac's funeral on Another World.

Miscellaneous Links

The Gynaecological Oncology Fund: The organization where Carmen now works as fundraising manager.

Marj Dusay's Official Website: I figured this site wouldn't be complete without some mention of Marj, who replaced Beverlee on Guiding Light . :) Marj is so fabulous that I might have gone ahead and included her in this site as well, making it a trio, if there were not already page(s) devoted to her on the net.

The Official Ilene Kristen Website: Another website I created, about the marvelous Ilene Kristen, who plays Roxy on One Life to Live and who played Delia on Ryan's Hope - perhaps the only other character in daytime to ever be written (and portrayed) as being as realistically neurotic as Iris. When Ilene and Beverlee once presented a daytime Emmy together, Afternoon TV Magazine wrote, "Super witches Iris Bancroft and Delia Ryan (Beverlee McKinsey and Ilene Kristen) paired as presenters - what a combination!"
