Soap Opera Network‘s coverage of the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards red carpet continues, this time with “General Hospital’s” Maura West (Ava Jerome), who opted for a silver gown for the night’s event.

Soap Opera Network: Beautiful gown! You’re like a statue! Who’s the designer?

I don’t know. My fabulous costume designer let me borrow this from “General Hospital.”

Lucky! So can you take me through your day? What did you do leading up to the red carpet?

I’ve got five children, so I wake up at like 5:45 with at least two of them in my bed with me. And then I have my coffee, got my hair blown out and then went home and had a Miller Lite.

Awesome! That’s good before the red carpet to take the edge off!

It was really kind of a natural day. I also went for a swim early.

So no snags getting ready? It was pretty smooth?

Yes. And my husband drove me.

Is there anyone in particular you’re rooting for tonight?

Obviously Jane Elliot (Tracy Quartermaine, “GH”). She’s my personal standout. Not only is she an extraordinary actress, but she’s an exceptional human being. I’m sure you’ve heard so many people say this tonight, but it’s true what they say: She’s just a really special person, and she was so kind to me when I arrived at the show. And of course, Kristen Alderson [Kiki Jerome, "GH"], my little girl. And my lover, Bryan Craig [Morgan Corinthos]! Can’t forget him. They’re all so lovely.

    Maura West is a class act, always has been and always will be. I loved her as Carly on “As the World Turn”, Diane on “The Young and the Restless”, and now as Ava Jerome on “General Hospital”. Her acting style is very much Old Hollywood; i see Greta Garbo, Katherine Hepburn and Grace Kelly all wrapped up into one bundle that is the Miller Light drinking gal, Maura West! I look forward to her Ava storyline for years to come, and whatever other projects she may take under her belt! That gown is also stunning! Giving me Old Hollywood!

    Maura West looked just beautiful. She is my favourite on GH. I loved her on Y&R. Great actress. She deserves an Emmy.
