Soaps.com: How did you come about auditioning for the role of Jack?

Andrew: My manager, Colette/CP Talent Management submitted my photo and resume and we got an appointment from Julie Madison at OLTL.

Soaps.com: How did the audition go?

Andrew: When I got the audition script from OLTL, I wasn’t sure who I was auditioning for (they didn’t say it was for Jack), so I just practiced and did my best.

Soaps.com: Have you watched any past episodes of Carmen as Jack to get a feel for your character or are the writers planning to take Jack in a new direction?

Andrew: When I found out I got the part of Jack Manning, I was pretty excited. I looked up his character and I’m excited to take on the role.

Soaps.com: Can you give fans a look into what’s ahead for Jack based on the scenes you’ve already done?

Andrew: I have only taped two episodes (so far) they have been fun, stay tuned!
