Soaps.com’s red carpet interviews include stars of Days of our Lives, General Hospital and Young and the Restless stars.

Soaps.com was on the red carpet Sunday May 5 for the 46th Annual Daytime Emmys. The red carpet is long, and full of venues all vying for the attention of the soap stars, which means that we can’t talk to every single actor. In fact, unfortunately for us and for our readers, by chance, we missed out on all of the Bold and the Beautiful actors. It’s the luck of the draw. We were happy to speak with the actors from Days of our Lives, General Hospital and Young and the Restless about current pop culture, the actors’ music jams, which roles they covet, and what kind of storylines or superpowers they’d enjoy their characters to have and more. Check out the video footage below of the stars before the ceremony began.

Carolyn Hennesy (Diane Miller, General Hospital) teased Kristyn Burtt that there is a court case coming on General Hospital soon and Diane Miller will be involved. Beth Maitland (Traci Abbott, Young and the Restless) talked about how she got ready and with whom, and how this nomination was “a gift from above.” Kassie DePaiva (Eve Donovan, Days of our Lives) opened up about getting Daytime Emmy ready and then wished that her character Eve would be happy. She also opened up about some fans hoping Eve will jump off a bridge. Eric Martsolf (Brady Black, Days of our Lives) and his wife Lisa Kouchak talk about what happened when she went to get her hair done before the Emmys. Martsolf asked, “Have you seen the movie Risky Business?”
