Forbes March exit from ATWT in revealing new interview with TV Guide Canada!

forbesMain.jpgWow, in a tell-all exit interview with TV Guide Canada’s Nelson Branco, ATWT’s Forbes March details the decisions that have led to his departure from Oakdale and the Nuke’s orbit.  Seems the gay storyline involving the threesome is stalled and not going to move forward.  Forbes discusses his frustration over the situation with his self-effacing humor, plus discusses his favorite role as OLTL’s Nash and much more.  Here is an excerpt!

TVG: Telenext/P&G is infamous for pussyfooting around their gay storyline — was that frustrating as an actor?

FM: Yeah, it was odd. Their gay characters aren’t very gay! [Laughs]. If someone turned on the soap for the first time, I think it would take them a while to figure out Mason was gay. Let’s face it — Luke and Noah are two J. Crew guys, two of the nicest and most wholesome gay boys you’ll ever meet. World Turns needs someone like American Idol’s Adam Lambert. Because I was completely taken with Adam, I went into my World Turns’ audition with black leather pants, rock-star jewelry and snakeskin boots! I pulled all of that out for the audition to give them ideas. The looks on their faces? A resounding, “Nooo!” Mason is supposed to be a gay indie moviemaker but they ended up dressing him like freakin’ Indiana Jones! Nuke is about as gay as Bill Cosby! [Laughs] Throw a wrench in there, people. World Turns needs an extroverted, effeminate gay man on that show. Give Mason eyeshadow! But they didn’t like that. The only input they accepted from me was Mason’s endless scarf collection
