Soaps.com’s January Interviews
Up close with the actors.
Soaps.com’s January interviews with the stars of Daytime television had them dishing on cancellations, scandals, possible affairs, a popular recast, and Daytime’s newest bad girl…
In our Darnell Williams Interview the former “All My Children” star shared with Lori, “I think pretty much everybody was satisfied with the way the Hubbards were able to wrap up.” Read the above link to find out what he said about this year’s Tribute to Pine Valley, and the actor’s new role on “The Young and the Restless.”
During our James Reynolds Interview, the “Days of our Lives” actor explained Abe’s mayoral campaign tactics to Hollie. “I think he is just engaging in the rough and tumble of politics and there may be a little ethical blurring but the truth of the matter, he knows that EJ is going to do this and in some ways he is stopping EJ and even look at it as the ultimate practical joke.” We also discussed his nomination for a NAACP Award for Outstanding Actor in a Daytime Drama, and plans for a possible film project on the horizon.
Hollie chatted with another “DOOL” actor, Kate Mansi (Abby), who shared insight into her character such as the cat fight with Melanie (Molly Burnett), Jack and Abby’s relationship, and Abby’s feelings toward a certain married man in town. “For Abigail it is a real attraction, a real possibility for her to be with him [Austin, Patrick Muldoon] because what initially attracted her to him is the way he is a strong man, he is a good husband, he is loyal, he loves his wife.” Read more in an interview with DOOL’s Kate Mansi.
Lori spoke with Jen Lilley, "General Hospital's" fill-in for Maxie. She shares her initial reaction to taking over for Kirsten Storms as Maxie. "I grew up watching her on "Zenon," so I felt a lot of pressure. Jill Farren Phelps [former executive producer] sat me down in the office and said "I don't want to add any more pressure on you, but just so you know, it's the most critical time in history for our show and the most critical time in this character's life. So, I really need you to pull this off." Read more in Jen Lilley's Interview with Soaps.com.
Former "All My Children star, Melissa Claire Egan migrated over to "The Young And The Restless" and told Candace all about her Genoa City character. "I know some people hate her, and I totally get it, but if you’re going to do it, overdo it. Annie was fun because you never knew what she was going to do because she was kind of nuts, and Chelsea’s fun because you never know what she’s going to do because she’s a con artist." She talks about the initial offer to play Chelsea, and gives us the scoop on what to expect from Chelsea and her mother, coming up. It's all in an exclusive interview with Melissa Claire Egan.
