Crystal Chappell named Entertainer of the Year!

Crystal Chappell - Nov 19, 2009Days of our Lives and Venice star, Crystal Chappell is racking up all sorts of year end awards.  So many, that I don’t know where she could put them all if they were tangible property.   But in this new interview out today from TV Guide Canada’s Nelson Branco, the popular TV website has named Chappell; Entertainer of the Year, and while Crystal talks about Otalia, Venice and DAYS and her extraordinary year, there are some other fun quotes below!

Chappell on if she has shed Olivia’s skin and become Carly again:  “I do. I’m totally settled in as Carly now. In the beginning, there was a brief adjustment because I had to re-acquaint myself with the old way of shooting a soap again. That took a few weeks. Now that we’re heavy into Carly’s story, I feel like I know who she is again. And I’ve thrown some of Olivia into Carly whenever I can. I like that Carly’s darker. She’s a good person, but she’s no longer a victim and not scared to fight back.”

Chappell confirming if she is now an Olivia and Carly hybrid:  “Yes. Back in July, I remember when Gary was pitching me this story, he kept mentioning Bette Davis. Any producer who draws on black-and-white film is a friend of mine because they are well-constructed and classic stories! I love that Carly’s a murderess, an adulteress, and a thief — and that she has no remorse. I love it because Carly’s the perfect soap character [laughs]!”

Chappell on if she will submit herself this year of Lead Actress contention at the Emmys: ” I am. I haven’t looked at my material [with a fresh eye] yet, but I’m pretty sure I’ll be submitting the GL graveyard scenes where Olivia tells Natalia she loves her.  I don’t think I have the material on DAYS yet to submit my name for Emmy consideration. What I filmed this past week as Carly is really dramatic but that won’t air until February. There’s a lot of juicy stuff coming up for Carly. More than likely, I will only submit my GL work. Alison Sweeney and Ari Zucker delivered such unforgettable performances this past year that I think it’s their year to be recognized.”

She most definitely has to submit herself, or however they do it for a defunct show. Here’s hoping she gets a chance for another Emmy.
