ABC Soaps In Depth - - Feature Interview -

Hav­ing spent years hold­ing his own op­po­site Ju­dith Chap­man (ex-Ginny, GEN­ERAL HOS­PI­TAL) as his out­ra­geous mom, Glo­ria, on Y&R, Rikaart was re­lieved that he could like­wise trade quips with DAYS’ Vi­vian, leg­endary vet­eran Louise Sorel (Ju­dith, ONE LIFE TO LIVE). “She was just fan­tas­tic! It wasn’t all that dis­sim­i­lar from work­ing with Ju­dith,” Rikaart en­thuses. “They’re both th­ese larger than life, re­ally pow­er­ful ac­tresses with ex­ten­sive theater back­grounds and just a com­mand about them.” Rikaart says that he was grate­ful that his first day in Salem was spent shar­ing scenes with Sorel. “It was a great way to break the ice com­ing onto a new set,” he re­flects, “be­cause it felt some­what fa­mil­iar.”

Sorel “re­ally re­minded me of Ju­dith,” says lucky Rikaart, who’s worked with both.
