Soap Opera Weekly: Has anybody at GL taken you under his or her wing? Lawrence St. Victor: When I first started, everybody was a big help: Tom (Pelphrey, Jonathan), Stephanie (Gatschet, Tammy). I asked them a lot of questions. Weekly: So your co-stars told you about Remy's history? St. Victor: Yes, especially Yvonna (Wright, who plays Remy's sister, Mel). And I did a lot of research on my own, online. Weekly: Have you met with any police officers as part of your research? St. Victor: My best friend's father is a cop. Being in Manhattan, I also observe how police officers move, how they walk. Weekly: Tell us a little about your background and how you landed the part. St. Victor: I live in upstate New York. I went to SUNY-Purchase. Right out of school I got the gig. I actually did a reading for something [else]. They liked it, and a year later they gave me a call. It's been a blessing ever since. Weekly: What are your thoughts on the rapid aging of Remy's niece, Leah? St. Victor: It's funny. It works. There's so much [more] you can do with an adolescent. Remy's in the police academy and Tammy's in college, so Leah gives the young adolescent perspective. I hope the fans can understand the story and let go of the aging thing. Weekly: Do you have any hopes for the Bauers? St. Victor: They're going through some tough times right now, but I hope all will be well and, if not, that's more good story. They were a strong family at one point. I hope they can find the structure again. Weekly: Whose side does Remy take in the Rick/Mel rift? St. Victor: Remy likes Rick a lot, and knows Mel can be hard on [him]. They have such a good relationship. They've been through a lot, and Remy doesn't want to see them break up. Weekly: Have you experienced Michael O'Leary's (Rick) famous wit? St. Victor: Yes. He's brilliant. To play off that, it's just great. Weekly: What do you find special about GL? St. Victor: Oh, the people! The talent. I watch Kim Zimmer (Reva) and I'm in awe. Weekly: What was your first meeting with Kim like? St. Victor: Actually, it was in L.A., after she won the Emmy. We were sitting at the table and started talking. Weekly: In your spare time you're a comic book fan? St. Victor: I'm a comic fanatic! Superman every day. Sometimes I like Batman; I go back and forth. Once a month I buy everything I want to buy, and I don't care how much I spend. Weekly: What else do you do for fun? St. Victor: I love being with my family, my girlfriend. Any time I get to see them and my grandparents, that's fun for me. Weekly: When do you think Remy will get a love interest? St. Victor: I'm thinking soon. Remy's been in heavy pursuit of Tammy. He's trying to get some love! Weekly: What about fellow cop Marina? St. Victor: They're kind of best friends now. A romantic interest? Remy's a free dude...anything goes!
