Soaps.com: What was your reaction to your Daytime Emmy nomination? How did you when you found out?
Emily: At first, I hadn't heard anything and had only heard that Jeanne (Cooper, Katherine) and Christian (LeBlanc, Michael) had been nominated so I didn't need to worry about being nervous or anxious and continued with my day. I was at work when an hour later I got the call in my dressing room that I had made the nomination so it was a nice surprise to find out after thinking I hadn't!
Soaps.com: What are your thoughts on the nominations for co-cast members (Jeanne Cooper, Katherine; Christian LeBlanc, Michael; and Bryton, Devon Hamilton)?
Emily: It's wonderful to see these fine actors nominated again, and so very well deserved!
Soaps.com: What was your reaction to Y&R not being nominated for Outstanding Drama Series.
Emily: Honestly, perhaps a little surprised, but we have had great previous years and I am sure that we will have more nominations in the future...
Emily: I think this storyline has been wonderful. Every relationship and character needs a shake-up and we definitely got that. I felt so satisfied after being able to perform such great material with these actors, and it put my character in a place of such vulnerability. That's always wonderful to play... The headaches were only a sign of their connectedness, and her headaches were finally relieved after she knew that her husband was okay.
Soaps.com: Can you give any hints on what's ahead for Jana? In particular some are wondering if she will become more involved with Daniel and his art storyline.
Emily: At this point I am not too sure, but the two of them definitely have a great friendship, which is fun to see evolve. Mischief and trouble might lie ahead for these two in the future though!
Soaps.com: Do you have any outside projects on the go?
Emily: At the moment, no. I'm focusing on the show, and will probably be doing another play this summer which I will keep everybody posted on.
Soaps.com wishes Emily the very best of luck at the Daytime Emmys in June. She is a brilliant actress and a joy to watch on Y&R!
