Soaps.com reporters speak with various soap stars, weekly. They discuss everything under the sun. This time around, they gave up who they think is the most memorable actor or character they've worked with thus far.
Chris Engen (Adam Newman, The Young and the Restless) names most memorable as "Eric Braeden – he is a challenge to work with but it is really rewarding.”
Emily O’Brien, (Jana Hawkes Fisher, Y&R) says, “Judith Chapman. I never know what she is going to say or do.”
Michael Graziadei (Daniel Romalotti, Y&R) said, “I love working with Michelle Stafford.”
Kate Linder (Esther Valentine, Y&R) opened up briefly about Jeanne Cooper. “She’s amazing.”
Brandon Beemer (Owen Knight, Bold and the Beautiful) pipes up. “I always loved working with Peter Reckell on Days of Our Lives. I loved working with him and Kristian Alfonso. And then over here (at B&B)…you know, I’ll just stick to Days because I don’t want to piss anyone off on this side.”
Kamar de los Reyes (One Life to Live's Antonio Vega)…He tells her, "I've worked with so many great people on One Life to Live that for me to single out just one person wouldn't be fair. I think for me, the greatest time in my acting career was when I did "Blade to the Heat". I have yet to experience that type of creative high."
Murray Bartlett (Cyrus FLoey, Guiding Light) "I enjoy working with all the actors on GL, but I especially loved working with Beth Ehlers (Harley) who became a great friend, and will always have a soft spot for the amazing Marj Dusay (Alexandra Spaulding). She is legendary as far as I'm concerned."
Arianne Zuker (Nicole Kiriakis, Days) surprised us by saying, "He’s not really an actor, but Donald Trump! He was on our show. That was really flippin hysterical. It was great. He was really funny and the most exciting part was I got spoofed on SNL. I was the good spoof, so really they were spoofing Donald Trump on it. Amy Poehler played Nicole on the show. I was so excited. It was great. That’s a memorable moment I think."
Kristian Alfonso (Hope Brady, Days), tells us, "That’s one of the reasons I love Hope so much also, because she’s involved with everybody. Especially when I was doing the Princess Gina character, I think I worked with every character on the show, which was great because it challenged me because it forced me to work with different people and receive different things. I have to say I love working with everyone. I love working with Frances Reid. I love working with Frances. You know, Peter. It goes without saying. Joseph Mascolo is fantastic. Working with Mary Beth and Stephen. Seriously, I love working with everybody.
Lindze Letherman (General Hospital's ex-Georgie)gave Soaps.com a list! "Maurcie (Benard), Steve (Burton), John (Ingle), John J. York (Mac) and said that everyone was so fabulous. Then she listed "Ric Hearst (Rick) and paused to really emphasize Jane Elliot (Tracy Quartermaine. "She was really something to me." She went on to say, "The talent that is on that show is ridiculous. I love and miss everyone and they all brought something so different and taught me something different."
Texas Battle (Marcus, B&B) says, "Samuel Jackson on “Coach Carter” Sam is one of those guys, he’s loud but then again he means well and he just gives it to you straight. He’s the one who actually taught me, that if you know the scene, the lines will come. Just know the scene and what’s going on in the scene and everything else natural will come to you. It was my first job and working with him so I was just so worried about the lines all the time. I learned a lot over the five years that I’ve been in this business. He definitely helped me out a lot. We still talk to this day actually. I talk to him once or twice a month just to see how he’s doing and just to let him know he’s always been an influence on me and my career."
Kathy Brier (Marcie, OLTL) gave her memorable as,"Roscoe Borne who played Mitch Laurence."
