I chatted with Jake about the storyline a couple of weeks ago. You can read that article here. We also spoke about his fellow actors and how his life has changed since joining the show in June.
Kristi: "Being such a new character on the Oakdale canvas, what has it been like to be thrust right to the front burner?"
Jake: "Everybody has been very supportive and the feedback (from the fans) has been good so I just kind of feel like I've been joined up with this storyline going all the way back to Van's storyline last summer (that is when Luke came out to his family). It's really great to be such a strong part of this great storyline."
Kristi: "Noah has been polarized a bit and spends most of his time with Luke and Maddie. Will Noah start branching out to other members of the community soon?"
Jake: "I have started working with some more of the other actors in the show. I've been working more with the (entire) Snyder families and have some scenes coming up with Dusty."
Kristi: "Which cast member would you say you look up to the most and why?"
(Kristi's note #1: I think Jake's a little bit of a politician! I'm kidding him, of course. With all the great actors on the show it would be difficult to single anyone out!)
Kristi: "Who is the funniest co-worker on the set and what do they do that perks everyone up?"
Jake: (chuckles) "Van is the silliest, he's a real character. There are a lot of funny people on the set, but Van. . .(I think) it's the impressions of the other actors or just people who are standing around (that makes him funny)."
Kristi: "We hear that days on the set can be long (and sometimes boring). What do you do to pass the time?"
Jake: "I love to go over the work, to run lines with the other actors. Personally I love to go down to the floor early and watch a few scenes before me, just to get the physicality of the acting back."
Kristi: "Being fairly new to ATWT, have you participated in any fan events?"
Jake: "Yes, and they have been great. [The fans] are very passionate about the shows and the storylines, and that really means the world to any actor. It's great to know how they care. I wasn't expecting this at all, I thought it would come down the line, but they have been really quick to embrace Noah. I hope you all keep enjoying the character and I love hearing feedback from the fans."
(Kristi's note #2: You can contact Jake through the show by clicking here.)
Kristi: "To all the actors who are just getting into the business, do you have any advice for them?"
Jake: "No matter what, if what you do is coming from a real place that is the goal. Just find something inside yourself that you can relate to the character. If you find the part of any role that comes from your heart, you'll make that part yours."
Thank you, Jake, for speaking to Soaps.com. We love hearing news from the set and wish you lots of luck with the role of Noah.
