      James Scott on EJ DiMera and the Tale of Two Taylors

      (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — During a stop in New York City at the NBC Experience Store within 30 Rockefeller Plaza (NBC's corporate headquarters), while promoting the new coffee book "Days of our Lives 45 Years: A Celebration in Photos," cast and crew members from the show sat down with Soap Opera Network to discuss their characters, their lives and much more. In our first interview, actor James Scott (EJ DiMera) talks about the Taylor switch (see Livingston OUT! Braun IN!) and why his character is so bad!

      English born actor James Scott joined the cast of NBC's "Days of our Lives" in the contract role of EJ DiMera in May 2006. Since then, he's seen his character go from a seemingly harmless, but definitely womanizing, race car driver to a corporate lawyer and for the most part as the dastardly evil son of Stefano DiMera (Joseph Mascolo). So how does his portrayer see the character right now? "He can be a little bit bad at times," said Scott. "He's just really an insecure guy for the most part who doesn't deal very well with many situations." One could argue that he's in for a big situation when EJ starts playing with fire with wife Nicole's (Arianne Zucker) sister, Taylor Walker. "EJ has just met this girl [Taylor] and he feels something for her," the actor shared. "I don't think he quite knows exactly what it is, but he feels drawn towards her in a way. I think you'll have to wait and see exactly what happens. It is a good story."

      Natalia Livingston, who had been portraying the role of Taylor on the soap since the characters debut in late January, was fired recently after the show decided to take the character into a different direction. Said direction included the casting of actress Tamara Braun, who portrayed the role of Ava Vitali (who ironically was one of Nicole's few friends) in 2008, to take over from the departing Livingston beginning in late April. So how does Scott think the change will affect the current storyline? "I have to say I think it'll be surprisingly seamless. I had worked with Tamara, but not a tremendous amount. Obviously, Tamara and Natalia are very different actors. It has been a big transition in the story," said Scott. But what insight can he share into the decision to change actors? "I don't know why they decided to make the switch. From what I was told, they were taking the character in a new direction. I don't know what that direction is, but we'll have to see. I really enjoyed working with Natalia. I don't really understand why they switched the two actors around. I'm sure they had their reasons and at some point we'll see."

        IMDb

        NBC’s “Days of our Lives” has cast newcomer Bren Foster in the contract role of Quinn, a character previously known as Fletcher in a recent casting call according to Soap Opera Digest. The character is described as being a “charming businessman with an edge. He can be clean cut or not. He is sexy, mysterious and savvy, has an easy way with the ladies but can be formidable if crossed.” The World Tae Kwon Do Champion’s first airdate will be in May and he’ll share his first scenes with Nadia Bjorlin‘s Chloe Lane.

        Prior to joining “DAYS,” Foster is probably best known for his roles in the Australian soap “Home and Away” and drama “Sea Patrol.” He recently completed work on two American films, one called “War Flowers” where he played the role of John Ellis, a confederate sergeant alongside actors Christina Ricci and Tom Berenger, and “Bad to the Bone” where he portrays the title character Donnor ‘Bone’ Mason. He appeared regularly in the short lived National Geographic series “Fight Scene,” which delved into the world of mixed martial arts, fighting back and special ops.

        Foster was born in London and moved to Australia when he was three years old. He started his acting career while in high school.



        'Y&R's' Joshua Morrow Talks Lawsuits and his Desire for an Addiction Storyline for Nicholas Newman

        (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — In an interview with Soap Opera Network, "The Young and the Restless" star Joshua Morrow (Nicholas Newman) took the time to talk about the outcome of the arbitration storyline set to air on the Tuesday, March 8 episode of the CBS soap, but he also sheds light on which storyline he'd like to tackle at some point in the future.

        Morrow, who joined "Y&R" in June 1994, has found his character dealing with the rape of his high school sweetheart (Sharon, Sharon Case), the death of his adopted daughter (Cassie, Camryn Grimes), a divorce from two wives (Sharon and Phyllis, Michelle Stafford) and multiple kids, but what storyline has Morrow not played on "The Young and the Restless," but wishes he could act out in the future? "I guess something along the addiction phase. I don't think that Nick has ever really had a problem. He seems to have a wandering eye with the ladies, so one could definitely describe that as an addiction, but something addictive. I think that would be kind of fun just to see Nick fall apart a little bit. I'm always interested in the people who get to bare their sole like that on air, so I think that would be kind of cool."

        While the the dynamics are completely different, what does the actor think viewers, who might be going through a similar situation, be able to take from the arbitration storyline taking place between Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) and his kids? "I think first and foremost that honesty must prevail. Victor has proven to be incapable of being honest to his children, which is very peculiar because the character is written where he always cares about his family. He's willing to do anything, but he sure makes some very questionable decisions about being forthright with them. I guess honesty and some compromise," said Morrow. "With Nick and Victor you've got two very headstrong people who don't really seem to want to bend on this. Once Nick joined this thing it became pretty serious and it carried a lot of weight to this lawsuit. I guess things like this happen in real life where the children are after their father's legacy and trying to carve out their own niche financially, but it is tough for me to think that children could go this far with their parent. It is a television show. It is dramatized to a very serious degree. I can't imagine families acting like this."

          Debbi Morgan Contributes to 'Saving Our Daughters' Series

          (Soap Opera Network) — “All My Children’s” Debbi Morgan gets personal for a very good cause.

          Curtis J. Benjamin helms the “Saving Our Daughters” book series which features thoughts, stories and letters from renowned and predominantly African-America female psychologists, executives, entertainers, entrepreneurs as well as everyday mothers and in some cases fathers. Self esteem, superiority and inferiority surrounding skin color, and eating disorders are a few subjects touched on in the “Saving Our Daughter” series. “Saving Our Daughters” strives to touch the lives of young females, African American or not, facing these complicated issues. The 5th Edition of the series, which was released on February 15, takes on the most relevant current issue facing teens today: Bullying. “All My Children’s” Debbi Morgan joins writer Maya Angelou, singers Janet Jackson and Tiffany Evans, actresses Alfre Woodard and Anika Noni Rose to name a few to share personal letters and personal stories of bullying in “Saving Our Daughters: Who Will Save the Little Girl?” in hopes of helping the many female youths facing bullying as we speak. Morgan also received the distinction of sharing the cover of the latest edition of the series.

          The following is Morgan’s powerful contribution to the Foreword of “Saving Our Daughters: Who Will Save the Little Girl?”:

          To Whom It May Concern:

          I was very small when I was a teenage girl and was picked on and bullied constantly. My teenage years were actually the lowest point of my life, and sometimes I just wanted to die. I began to have this constant fear whenever I had to go to school or whenever I knew I might come in contact with these bullying girls. Now as an adult looking back I would tell “my teenage self” and present this quote to all teen girls facing this trauma…

          It is your birthright to be treated with dignity and self-respect, but whatever we fear is what we attract… whatever we project and perceive is what manifests in our lives.

          Bullies are threatened by fearless, confident girls…Consider your birthright, dig deep, find that self-confidence and fearlessness within…and bullies be gone.

          Sincerely,

          ~ Actress Debbi Morgan

          In related news, Morgan is not only contributing to books, she’s also in the middle of completing a fictional book with the interesting title “My Ass Turned 50 … And I Lost My Mind!” We’ll keep you updated on that production as details become available. As for Morgan’s “AMC” alter-ego, after a slow reintroduction (starting later today, March 8) into Pine Valley over the next few weeks, look for Dr. Angie Hubbard’s dramatic story to kick into high gear as the month comes to a close.

            With Victor and Adam both no-shows to the arbitration ruling, Michael calls Heather and tells her to find his clients and get them there immediately. Heather discovers that Victor is talking to the District Attorney Walsh and tells him that he needs to get to the arbitration. Victor informs her that he will be there. Alone, Victor gives his account of the events surrounding Skye’s death, pointing out that he heard both Sharon and her heated exchange of words, then later hearing what appeared to be Sharon trying to save Skye from falling into the volcano. DA Walsh is instantly skeptical as to why Victor has come forward all of a sudden. Victor points out he doesn’t want to see an innocent woman go to jail.

            Sharon questions Nick’s odd behavior when she tells him about Adam’s strange behavior. Nick quickly plays it off and the two head to the arbitration.

She then lets slip about Victor trying to get Sharon off the hook for Skye's death.

Malcolm arrives and handing her the bouquet she was going to have for their wedding, proposes to her again, as Neil watches on.

            At the arbitration, Victor lights into his children for their actions and how he would rather let his billion dollar company he solely created crumble to the ground than give them any part of it.
