If ever there was a video that spells out the hard work, tenacity, passion and love for the genre, and the caliber of talent performing in the soaps, it is this video just released by Hulu and The Online Network called, “One Hundred Pages A Day”.

In a touching and revealing segment promoting the rebirth of All My Children and One Life to Live, several actors from AMC including: Thorsten Kaye (Zach), Francesca James (Evelyn) and Julia Barr (Brooke), Jordi Vilasuso (Griffin), Darnell Williams (Jesse) and executive producer Ginger Smith, fill the viewers in on the rigors of a day in the life of an actor on a soap opera!  From the pace of it, to learning the lines each day and more!

Cady McClain (Dixie, AMC) said it best when she related: “I feel the actors on daytime are really excellent.  It’s such a great opportunity for people to see how these actors can be.  And the the genre isn’t a silly genre,  it’s actually a really valid form of storytelling where actors are doing really amazing work.”

Watch “One Hundred Pages A Day” and let us know what you think of it? And what you know to be true about the hard work in front of the camera and behind-the-scenes that the actors in this medium go through to deliver the performances you love each and every day!

And thanks to all of them for their hard work and years and years of entertainment!

Loved that!!! It’s true it’s a very hard and fast paced shooting schedule and these people have to be on their game and know their stuff… and that’s also why some actors/actresses stand out with stellar work because they do so well in that genre and they immerse themselves in their characters and they know those characters so well and when the writing fits the character and when the writing and the stories are great… it’s why we are such fans!!! We get caught up in it with them and we see them so often… they become friends or almost family.

Yes I agree!

thank you for all hard work

Hard work and convincing storytelling.. Just love em all.

I hope more and more people, viewer, critics and executives, see this video to understand the tremendous work the daytime community does. The pace these people keep is unheard of in nighttime and film work. I truly admire everyone associated with daytime drama production.

i always knew daytime actors were the hardest working actors and they are never really given the credit that they deserve……………


Can not tell you how much I love and appreciate their work!!! Wonderful!

It is really isn’t easy memorizing a hundred pages a day..(WOW)! I couldn’t do it. I give the actors a lot for their hard work!

I watched All My Children since the beginning and the actors and actress are brilliant sometimes the storylines were very poor but I continued to watch because I loved the characters on the show.They work very hard much harder than any Hollywood movie star could handle or imagine

just want to say thank you for all your hard work .I believe these actors don’t get the respect and the credit they deserve because everyone has to do so much knit picking in a storyline it is what it is learn to calm down and just enjoy the soaps

Their hard work shows, All My Children is fabulous, I think I like this one better than the older one on ABC. Eat your heart out ABC! I watch the episodes 2 or 3 times a day, it’s that good. So glad it’s back on.

I love this! it gives us a general idea on what goes on behind the scenes..I also love it when the director tells Jessie and angie more w/feeling!

I wish Dixie would eat some pancakes!

This behind the scene of AMC on HULU is so cool!! WOW. I have such respect for these actors.100 pages a day!! WOW. You are all truly amazing beyond words

I loved watching the take behind the scenes. The actors truly show how hard they work and how much work it is to get the lines right. I thank all of you for your dedication and for you abilities to help make hard work pay off. Best of luck to to the show, the actors and the writers like Agnes Nixon. With love, a fan and friend always. Carle Wells!

Billy Miller Memorial Scholarship Endowment Created at His Alma Mater to Help Others ‘Realize Their Dreams’

Two months since three-time Daytime Emmy-winning actor, Billy Miller passed away, the beloved All My Children (ex-Richie), General Hospital (ex-Jason/Drew) and The Young and the Restless (ex-Billy) star, will now have a permanent scholarship endowment in his honor at the University of Texas at Austin which was Miller’s alma mater.

Through the scholarship, it will be able to help radio/television and film undergraduate students with financial need. Billy’s family and friends have established this permanent scholarship in his memory, naming it the William Jon Miller II “Billy Miller” Memorial Scholarship. They hope the endowment will be a legacy to his life and love of acting.

Before becoming soap-famous, Billy graduated from the the university’s department of Radio-Television-Film (RTF) at the Moody College of Communication. On its official website, they shared the news of this special memorial scholarship and how Miller died at the age of 43 after surrendering his life to bipolar depression, which he struggled with his whole life.

Megan Hubbell, Billy’s sister, expressed, “We want something positive to be held in his name in perpetuity through the University he loved. He would be honored to know that even in death, he can help someone else realize their dreams.”

She added how she hoped her immensely talented brother will be remembered: “I hope BJ (as Billy was known by to his friends and family) is remembered for the kind-hearted, silly, funny, goofy, generous, beautiful soul that he was His megawatt smile, deep belly laugh and gorgeous mug were gifts on screen, but his true self was a bright light that will be carried with us forever.”

According to Miller’s family, Billy had his picks of schools and UT was his first choice. When he first came to the university, Billy started in the zoology program before switching to radio-television-film, where he felt he belonged. Miller was one of just 20 students at the time accepted into the department’s prestigious production-sequence program.

“BJ was extremely proud to be a Texas Longhorn and always remembered his time there fondly,” Hubbell said. “The time he spent at UT allowed him the space to explore who he wanted to be and what he wanted to accomplish.”

In honoring her brother’s work and strength to persevere in the often heartbreaking world of entertainment, Megan related: “I always admired the guts it took to go after a dream in Hollywood that so many people tried to discourage. He heard, ‘You’ll never make it’ more times than I care to count, but he used those comments as fuel and said, ‘Watch me.’”

Miller’s roles went far beyond those on daytime soap operas, as throughout his career he played major parts in primetime’s Suits, Ray Donovan and Castle to name but a few.

In his death, Billy’s family is encouraging people to take stock of their own mental health. “BJ would want anyone struggling with intrusive thoughts to seek professional help,” Hubbell said. “Do not suffer in silence or try to muscle through on your own. Mental health is vitally important and shouldn’t be spoken about in silos behind closed doors but rather in open forums with open arms. Shame has no place in the discussion to seek help.”
