Interviews

Fans of “General Hospital’s” Kimberly McCullough (Robin Scorpio) have no doubt been thrilled to see the actress front and center on the canvas as of late, but the sad cat has officially been let out of the bag: She’ll soon be departing Port Charles! But just how will Anna’s (Finola Hughes) daughter be exiting the canvas? Read on to find out!
Robert Adamson may best be known as “The Young and the Restless’” Noah Newman, but what many fans might not know is that the actor is also a talented director. He’s made several short films — and he even met his real life flame, Linsey Godfrey (Caroline Spencer, “The Bold and the Beautiful”), after casting her in one of his recent projects! Soap Opera Network caught up with Adamson, who gave us the scoop on his films, love life, “Y&R” and more!
The New Year is bringing a fresh start to many, but it looks like it’ll be the same ol’ same ol’ dysfunction for “Days of our Lives’” Sami (Alison Sweeney) and EJ (James Scott) — and that’s exactly how their portrayers and their fans seem to want it! Soap Opera Network sat down with the popular pair to get their take on their alter ego’s dysfunctional relationship, what goes into their incredibly passionate and controversial fight scenes, how Abigail (Kate Mansi) could be a threat to their future, and more!
“General Hospital’s” Drew Cheetwood (Milo Giambetti) and Derk Cheetwood (Max Giambetti) might jokingly want fans to view them as super ninjas ready to dropkick anyone and anything at the drop of a hat, but when Soap Opera Network “mob”nobbed with the brothers for a feature interview, they proved that they’re much cooler than dropkicking ninjas — and then some!
The last few weeks have been anything but easy for “Days of our Lives” Eric, who lost his position as a priest after an explosive sex tape scandal stunned the town of Salem. And according to his portrayer, Greg Vaughan, the character is in for an uphill battle with no end in sight. But it is a soap opera, after all, so you can bet there’s going to be a love twist within the darkness that currently encapsulates the former priest’s life! Read on to get Vaughan’s take on the weeks ahead and whether or not he thinks a romantic relationship between Eric and Nicole (Arianne Zucker) is in the cards for next year!
Multiple Emmy-nominee Thorsten Kaye won the hearts of soap opera audiences with his strong portrayal of “All My Children’s” Zach Slater, “One Life to Live’s” Patrick Thornhart and “Port Charles’” Ian Thornhart, but can the actor strike gold again as Ronn Moss’ replacement in the role of “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Ridge Forrester? It won’t be the first time an actor has walked into the shoes of a major character whose previous portrayer is very much loved in the role, but then again, these aren’t just any old shoes to fill! Soap Opera Network caught up with Ridge’s onscreen dad, John McCook (Eric Forrester), who’s not only been working with Kaye as Ridge since day one, but who’s also quite familiar with the father/son dynamic the two characters have established over the years. Read on to get his take on the bold recasting choice, how he views Kaye’s approach to the role and what’s in store for Eric and Ridge in the weeks ahead!
Ever walk into a room and get a resounding boo? “General Hospital’s” Parry Shen (Brad Cooper) sure has, but the New York native took it in stride. When several people at this year’s "GH" Fan Club weekend shouted their disapproval upon Shen’s arrival to the event, he laughed it off and took it as par for the course.
It’s been exactly one year since Argentinian actor Ignacio Serricchio first aired as “The Young and the Restless’” Alejandro “Alex” Chavez, and there are a few things fans of the show have learned about the actor in that year: He’s incredibly talented, he’s incredibly sexy, and he’s incredibly kind. But when Soap Opera Network recently caught up with him at one of his stand-up comedy performances (yes, he does stand-up comedy), we learned that he’s much more talented, sexy and kind than anyone even imagines. And we’ve got the quotes to prove it!
Poor Abigail has been living the single life since the Chad/Cameron debacles on “Days of our Lives,” but her portrayer, Kate Mansi, says that won’t last for long! In fact, during a recent interview with Soap Opera Network, the gracious actress revealed a few details regarding her alter ego’s future love life as well as some insight into what makes Abigail tick. Read on to find out what’s in store!
During a recent “Days of our Lives" fan event, actor Drake Hogestyn (John Black) told Soap Opera Network that he’d signed a new contract with the sudser, but that’s not all the actor revealed! He’s got a pretty good idea of upcoming story for his alter ego, and he assured us that loyal viewers just might get exactly what they wish for when it comes to the popular pairing of John and Marlena (Deidre Hall).
Longtime viewers of “Days of our Lives” have seen Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) live up to his last name on more than one occasion. The recovering addict has experienced a lot of misery in his life — both of others’ doing, as well as his own — which has led him down some pretty dark paths in recent years. But when Soap Opera Network caught up with Martsolf to discuss his alter ego’s weeks ahead, the Pennsylvania native revealed that Kristen’s betrayal has sent Brady reeling — and this time, the CEO’s dark descent into addiction, depression and self-destruction might take him so far down, he won’t be able to get back up!
If you’ve been enjoying the dynamic between “Days of our Lives” Theresa (Jen Lilley), Shane (Charles Shaughnessy) and Kimberly (Patsy Pease), you’re not the only one! Shaughnessy and Pease shared their thoughts on the parent/daughter relationship with Soap Opera Network last week, and Lilley is now weighing in on the dramatic storyline!
As we previously reported, “Days of our Lives’” Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis) revealed to Soap Opera Network that Guy Wilson will replace Chandler Massey onscreen in the role of Will Horton beginning in January 2014. And now, we have the details of the transition, including Smith’s thoughts on the controversial super-quick recast and how Wilson is fitting into the role.
