Lisa and Bonnie chat about Allie (Soaps.com)

Recently, I had the chance to catch up with Eileen Fulton (Lisa) and learned she will appear in a new-old movie (more about that in a bit) and a more extensive role coming on As The World Turns.

Read on to find out more about Eileen’s future roles.

Kristi: “What can you tell us about the new movie ‘The Drum Beats Twice’?”

Eileen: “Well, it’s really an old movie, I did it about 4 years ago, but it’s just now releasing. I had a great time doing it because I played an old, drunk mother! It takes place back in the 60s. I loved working with Amy Redford, it was great fun to know her; she’s a wonderful person.”

Kristi: “Are there any anecdotes you can tell us about?”

Eileen: “This was an interesting experience for me: we were filming in this old house in West Milford and one night there were 6 of us at the dinner table. We had a traditional meal of steak, mashed potatoes and peas, I think. Anyway, suddenly the lights went off. So, we held hands and got out of the house. When the lights came back on we went back inside and the table was the same except there were six missing steaks! (Eileen laughs) The owner’s dog was sitting in the corner, licking his chops. He had eaten all of them!”

Kristi: “You’re fall cabaret show is coming up. What can you tell us about that?”

Eileen: “They will hear some very good [musical] arrangements! I think I’ll have a trio with me [piano, base, drums] for the fall shows and at Christmas, I’ll have a quartet, including winds [instruments like the clarinet and flute]. On September 16 and 17, I’ll perform at the Metropolitan Room at 7 PM and on September 18, I’ll perform at 9:30 PM.”
