Get­ting Dra­matic

CBS Soaps In Depth - - Sound Off -

Daniel Hall (Scott) spent most of his child­hood do­ing mu­si­cal theater. Yet when he de­cided to pur­sue act­ing pro­fes­sion­ally, he opted to gear his stud­ies more to­ward drama at the Univer­sity Of Michi­gan. “I stud­ied Shake­speare and the clas­sics, and was more in­ter­ested in do­ing films and TV than mu­si­cal theater,” he says, and with good rea­son. “I guess I find that type of ma­te­rial more re­al­is­tic than break­ing into song ev­ery five sec­onds!” In fact, that’s what at­tracted Hall to Y&R. “There are a lot of times when soaps can be larger than life, but I think [ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer] Mal Young is re­ally look­ing for some­thing that’s more based in re­al­ity than, say, a show like PASSIONS was. I re­ally like that as­pect of it, be­cause I’m more of an hour-drama kind of guy!”

These days, Hall is all about keep­ing it real.
