ATWT’s Julie Pinson (Janet) spoke to We Love Soaps at the Broadway Cares Flea Market event. In the interview Julie discusses Janet’s future, meatballs, and her feelings on her character on the CBS soap as opposed to when she appeared on DAYS and Port Charles. Here a few excerpts:

We Love Soaps: You have seen more relaxed and comfortable on this show than I have perceived you to be on other shows. Is that just me or is that true?

Julie Pinson: I think on AS THE WORLD TURNS they’ve given me a lot more rope. They’ve let me run with Janet and do whatever I want with her. They’ve allowed me to put more of myself in her. She’s not the victim like she was on DAYS OF OUR LIVES. They kept putting Billie with super couples. You can’t put her in between super couples. Billie is never going to win that way. She’s never going to win with Patch and Kayla. She’s never going to win with Bo and Hope. They never gave her her own guy. So it was boring for me to play. I was just Chelsea’s mom. So now I’m a mom again on this show but I have so much more of a life. I’m not just a mother, I’m a lover, I’m a wife, I’m independent, I’m a chef, a talk show host once in awhile. The writing on AS THE WORLD TURNS is so great, there’s really not much I can do to mess it up. It’s already so good.

We Love Soaps: What would you like to see happen for Janet in the future?

Julie Pinson: Well, without giving anything away, let me just say that as you know on soap operas it’s rare for you to stay with one person for a very long time. So if Janet were to split with Jack, if that were possible, it would be nice for her to go along the lines of a Craig or a Dusty. To mix it up a little bit, to have some fun with some different guys!

As the World Turns Cast To Perform Virtual Reading Of Final Episode

In a once-in-a soap-lifetime event during the Covid-19 pandemic, the cast of As the World Turns will reunite for one night online for a virtual reading of the CBS daytime drama’s final episode that aired back 10 years ago this past September,

This livestream event is for a good cause and is brought to you by former ATWT cast member, Trent Dawson’s (Ex-Henry) theatre group The Katonah Classic Stage.  Dawson is the artistic director there.

Over 26 veteran cast members from ATWT, including Larry Bryggman, Don Hastings, Kathryn Hays, Elizabeth Hubbard, Michael Park and more are set to participate in the reading plus some surprise guests.

The show will be streamed  n The Locher Room YouTube channel, 0n Wednesday night, October 28th at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST, where fans will also  have the opportunity to comment and ask questions of the cast,

The event is asking for a $15 donation to be able to see it and you can click here for more info!

Working with Katonah Classic Stage (KCS), a professional, nonprofit theatre group an hour north from New York City, Dawson is hoping this event will help those in need.  KCS has access to outdoor performance space that can provide a safer, more  socially-distant experience for the artists and the audience. The fundraiser not only  applies to salaries, but to health care as well; without employment most artists are ineligible for health coverage during a time when such insurance is critically important.

So what do you think of getting these beloved stars from ATWT together for a good cause to relive and read the script of the final episode from Oakdale? Comment below.
