Macdonald Carey (ex-tom)?
“The same. Great giver of advice. When I had been on the show a very short period of time and was beginning to feel my oats as an actress and disagreeing with the script and disagreeing with the director and in general behaving like an idiot, he was very kind to me. He took me aside and said that I was never going to get anywhere behaving in that fashion and that I should perhaps choose my words more carefully and catch more flies with honey than vinegar. It only took about three decades for that to sink in! But he was absolutely right, of course. He seemed to enjoy what he was doing. Before I came to DAYS, I had worked on GH, where the whole tone was serious, this was life and death, and never a smile was cracked by the producers. The whole atmosphere on the DAYS set was always so up, so professionally delightful. I mean, you can do drama and still be happy onstage. I felt like I had fallen into a new reality that was exciting and was also, dare I say it, fun.”
