Daytime fans will always know they saw Alec Baldwin first!  When he first hit our screens in the early 80’s on NBC’s The Doctors as Billy Aldrich, viewers knew this guy had the “It” factor.

After The Doctors ended, Baldwin was cast a few years later as disturbed preacher, Joshua Rush, the son of Lilliame Clements (Julie Harris) and brother to Valene (Joan Van Ark) on CBS primetime soap, Knots Landing.

In a piece in PEOPLE, Baldwin recalls his days on the soaps fondly.  He also appeared on CBS’ Dallas.  Alec participated in this interview to promote the upcoming The Story of Soaps two-hour special set to air on ABC on May 18th.

Recalling his time at Seaview Circle in the cul-de-sac on Knots, Baldwin shared: “They had a very good cast. They had a very talented cast.  That changes everything when you go to work. You don’t care if it’s a soap, if you’re working with somebody who’s great, everything goes up. I loved it.”

As to playing the manipulative Joshua, Alec shared:  “When I play that kind of character, I want to give it everything I can so when the hero kills me or thwarts me in the end, it’s more satisfying for the audience,. You really want that guy to get it.”

He’s a horrible human being (and not at all related to his politics; just him personally).
