Ever heard the rumor that working on a soap opera is one of the toughest acting jobs out there? Well, according to some industry insiders like “Days of our Lives'” casting director Marnie Saitta, “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” John McCook (Eric Forrester), “General Hospital’s” Anthony Geary, and “The Young and the Restless’” Max Ehrich (Fenmore Baldwin), daytime gigs are some of the toughest jobs to land — and keep, as well!

I had a chance to meet with the producers to discuss the character and the show, and it just seemed like a good fit," added Jenkins, who noted that the conversation he had with producers on the character helped give him something to dig into before the cameras began to roll.
