Soaps.com welcomes Matthew Morrison. Morrison stars as Adam Munson on the riveting soap opera, As the World Turns! After only a month portraying Adam, his role will come to an end on November 26, 2006. During an e-mail interview, Morrison reveals what it has been like working on the set, and he shares with us, some of what he has planned after he leaves As the World Turns.
Misti: Your role as Adam on As the World Turns was short-lived, can you tell your fans why you're leaving the show so soon?
Matthew: I was originally contracted short term on the show, and then they decided they wanted the character to keep going and asked me to stay, unfortunately, I had conflicts with other projects that I'm involved with.
Misti: What are your plans after you leave As the World Turns? Do you have any other television appearances lined up?
Matthew: I'm working on a couple of workshops of upcoming Broadway shows, and also shooting a film starring Steve Carell. I'm in a film called "Music and Lyrics By," coming out this Christmas, starring Hugh Grant and Drew Berrymore.
Misti: Do you have any plans for future appearances on As the World Turns?
Matthew: Not at the moment, but if I was free, and they asked, I would love to do it again. I loved working with the people on that show. We became friends in the short amount of time that I was there.
Misti: Many fans believe there is a relationship in the works for Adam and Jade, would you care to elaborate on that?
Matthew: I think that the anticipation is more fun!!!! Sorry!!!
Misti: No need for an apology. It will just keep us guessing. *Smiles*
Misti: Who has been the funniest co-worker on the set and why?
Matthew: Well, Zach (Casey) is a big goof-ball, love that guy. Also, Jen (Gwen) and Jesse (Will) and I would sit around and crack jokes.
Misti: Since you've been on the soap, have you had any bloopers, and do you care to share your funniest blooper moment with your fans?
Matthew: One day I came in and had three scenes given to me that I'd never seen before. I was frustrated, but other people seemed to be having some fun watching me mess up every other line! I think we wasted so much tape on me that day. (Laughter from Misti)
Misti: What did you do before you became an actor?
Matthew: I've been acting and singing since I was in 5th grade. I've been very lucky to always be able to support myself acting. Actually, while I was studying at NYU, I had a job at the GAP.
Misti: What do you think you would be doing now if you weren't an actor?
Matthew: If I weren't an actor, I would be an OB/GYN. My father is a midwife, and I've always been fascinated with child birth. Being able to help someone bring a life into the world is incredible. I've actually helped deliver two babies!
Misti: Would you like to leave a farewell message for your fans?
Matthew: Thanks for all of the positive feedback that I've gotten. Hope it was as fun for you as it was for me!
