Cruise with Winsor Harmon!
JCR: Are you friends with any of the other soap stars that are coming? (Cameron Mathison and Alicia Minshew from AMC, Tyler Christopher from GH, Don Diamont and Christian LeBlanc from Y&R, Austin Peck from ATWT, Julie Pinson and Brandon Beemer from DOOL.)
(As Julie listed the other soap stars coming along for the ride, Winsor replied after each name with comments like "Yep", "Know him", "Hung out with him", "Dated her", etc.)
WH: I have a friendship with every one of them.
JCR: I see that the cruise ship has casino gambling. Are you much of a gambler?
WH: That could get me in trouble. (He explained that Black Jack is his game and has won some money on various trips to Vegas. He became excited when he recalled "�one time in Monte Carlo, Ronn (Moss) and I rolled a 21 Red and walked away with three grand�")
JCR: Will your wife be able to come along?
WH: That's still up in the air. I don't pressure her to come along on work trips, if you can call a going on a cruise "work"! It can get kind of difficult. One time we were in Italy and she was pushed out of the way and practically run over. It really got to her.
(Windsor and his wife of seven years, Deanna Eve, have a nine year-old daughter and three year-old son.)
JCR: Are you bummed that you won't be on the location shoot to Australia?
WH: Not really. That's a pretty short trip and will be a tough shoot for those guys. It's much better when you go for 2 weeks. Plus, I've not been to Australia and I'd rather not see it that way for the first time.
JCR: Congratulations on the upcoming 20th anniversary celebration of Bold and the Beautiful. I know you're the 3rd actor to play Thorne, right?
WH: Thank you! And yes, I'm the 3rd. I've been at it for 12 years.
JCR: I understand that you sing, too. Have you considered having Thorne sing again?
WH: Brad (Bell) came to me about that. But that was Jeff Trachta's thing; I thought we should leave that with him.
JCR: Soaps.com reader's need to know�how do you feel about Thorne's breakup with Taylor?
WH: It was the right decision. He had to put his daughter first, he's one of those characters who does the right thing.
JCR: Who do YOU think Thorne should be with?
WH: Well, there are only two women that he hasn't been with! Ashley and Donna. And I've heard through the grapevine that (Donna!) might be happening.
JCR: Thorne was perfect with Darla. We were shocked when they killed her off. I didn't see that one coming.
WH: I don't think she did either!
JCR: Do you have any brothers in real life?
WH: Yep. I have a younger brother who recently moved just two blocks away from us.
JCR: Aren't you glad that he isn't like Ridge?
Thank you Winsor for taking the time to talk to Soaps.com fans. For those of you who are tempted to pack a bag and come along for all the fun, you can get more information on the Carnival Soap Star Cruise at Soap Cruise 2007
Soaps.com is green with envy for the lucky soap fans that are planning to set sail in November on a Carnival Cruise in the Caribbean with all of our favorite stars!
Bold and the Beautiful Editor, Julie Clark Robinson, may not be reaching for her passport but she did have a lovely conversation the other day with Winsor Harmon about his upcoming voyage. Here’s a peak at how he feels about his trip!
JCR: Have you ever taken a cruise before?
WH: I’ve never been on a cruise ship in my life. I have seen Titanic several times, though.
(Winsor jokes a little about being nervous about being in the middle of the ocean on a ship. Julie points out that it’s not like they’ll be traveling between New York and London, they’ll be in the middle a bunch of tiny islands off of Florida! Winsor jokes, “I’ll be able to see shore, right?”)
JCR: What are you most looking forward to on this cruise?
WH: The time off.
JCR: Between the meet and greet & photograph sessions, cocktail parties and various activities, you KNOW that the fans won’t be able to get enough of you � they will all be the biggest of soap fans, I’m sure. What are your feelings about that?
WH: I’m looking forward to it. It’s always interesting to hear what the fans have to say.
JCR: Ronn Moss (Ridge) is coming along, too. Do you think you two will hang out together when you’re not meeting fans, or will you each do your own thing?
WH: We’ll hang out together, for sure.
