Ready For Primetime!

ABC Soaps In Depth - - Ins & Outs -

Kath­leen Gati (Obrecht) and Jon Lind­strom (Kevin) haven’t been seen much in Port Charles as of late, but the ac­tors have been hard at work on primetime pro­jects!

Gati has re­turned to The CW’s AR­ROW, repris­ing the role she played in the 2012 pi­lot — Oliver’s dot­ing child­hood nanny, Raisa. “My char­ac­ter is the po­lar op­po­site of Obrecht,” she re­ports. “Raisa is this warm, kind, lov­ing per­son who just wants to em­brace and nanny ev­ery­body. It’s dif­fer­ent.”

Also dif­fer­ent is hav­ing hours to shoot a scene — rather than min­utes, like at GH! “I get to take my time, think about things and try dif­fer­ent ways,” Gati chuck­les. “But af­ter six hours of get­ting dif­fer­ent an­gles, I said to Stephen Amell (Ar­row), ‘By now, in the soap, we would have done seven episodes!’

“I wasn’t be­ing sar­cas­tic!” she adds.

As for whether Obrecht will sur­vive her feud with Finn, Gati doesn’t know but says, “I will con­tinue to re­cur on GH as long as they want me to.”

Lind­strom, mean­while, re­cently taped an up­com­ing episode of NCIS: LOS AN­GE­LES. “Your own trailer, and they bring you break­fast,” the ac­tor quipped on In­sta­gram. “I love this biz.”

NCIS: LOS AN­GE­LES kicks off a new sea­son on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 1, at 9:30 EST, with Lind­strom set to ap­pear in the fourth episode, “Moun­te­bank.” AR­ROW re­turns to The CW on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 12, at 9 p.m. EST, but at press time, Gati’s air dates were un­avail­able.

While AR­ROW is bring­ing back Gati (left) as “the po­lar op­po­site of Obrecht,” Lind­strom is vis­it­ing LOS AN­GE­LES.

Lucci re­mem­bers her late AMC co-star as a “great guy.”
