Soap Opera Digest - - ROUNDUP -

Heather Tom (Katie, B&B)

“I’d known Don [Di­a­mont, Bill] on Y&R since I was a kid [when he was Brad and she was Vic­to­ria], so to be play­ing op­po­site him as a love in­ter­est on B&B, I was amazed at how funny he was when we first started work­ing to­gether again — al­though that could have been be­cause I was older and I got a lot more of his jokes [laughs].”

Wayne Brady (Reese, B&B)

“I can de­scribe work­ing with Hunter Tylo [Tay­lor] in one word: Fierce! Hav­ing grown up watch­ing B&B, it was sur­real that I ac­tu­ally had the op­por­tu­nity to act op­po­site her in scenes. She was ev­ery­thing I could have ever an­tic­i­pated and so much more.”

Tracey E. Breg­man (Lau­ren, Y&R)

“About Chris­tian [Leblanc, Michael], I couldn’t be­lieve some­one so funny could be such a bril­liant dra­matic ac­tor.”

La­mon Archey (Eli, DAYS)

“Let’s say Kris­tian

[Al­fonso, Hope]. She’s been such a strong char­ac­ter on the show for so many years that I was a lit­tle in­tim­i­dated. I was like, ‘Oh, God, this is Kris­tian!’ She was very, very sweet and very wel­com­ing and warm, which a lot of the times, it won’t al­ways be like that. You get peo­ple who have been on the show for years and they kind of have their noses up in the air and she wasn’t like that at all. She was so lov­ing.”

Bry­ton James (Devon, Y&R)

“Kristoff [St. John, Neil, l.] was pro­fes­sional and gen­uine. He made me feel com­fort­able and loved from day one.”

Lisa Locicero (Olivia, GH)

“I first met Mau­rice [Be­nard, Sonny] when I au­di­tioned to play Kate and my first im­pres­sion of him was that he was as hand­some and as in­tense as he was on TV — and also that he smelled good.”

Gilles Marini (Ted, DAYS)

“My first im­pres­sion of Kris­tian, be­sides the fact that she’s dropdead gor­geous? I think she’s sweet. Ex­tremely pro­fes­sional in the sense that there’s not one word that Kris­tian doesn’t think about. The truth is, she helps me so much. I can’t even start on how much she helps me, this woman. There’s no rea­son she does it at all, it’s just be­cause she is that way.”

James Pa­trick Stu­art (Valentin, GH)

“My first im­pres­sion of Michelle [Stafford, Nina] is that she was in­cred­i­bly beau­ti­ful and in­cred­i­bly tal­ented.

And I was right!”
