I don’t think Hollywood could support a medium that tells a 40+ year story anymore.” Those currently being interview by the author include Erika Slezak (ex-Viki), Robin Strasser (ex-Dorian), Robert S. Woods (ex-Bo), Hillary B. Smith (ex-Nora), Ilene Kristen (ex-Roxy), Kassie DePaiva (ex-Blair), Michael Storm (ex-Dr. Wolek), Judith Light (ex-Karen), Nathan Fillion (ex-Joey) and many more.
