The incomproable Kim Zimmer and Robert Newman, soaps beloved Reva and Josh from Guiding Light, sailed the high seas recently on the Soap Cruise with TV Guide Canada’s Nelson Branco and the threesome had a heart to heart about all things past, present, and future with their legendary soap careers, mourning GL and moving on, and what’s the next arc in their professional lives. The interview is a must-read for long time GL fans. Here are a few excerpts!

Kim and Robert on if they have been able to mourn the death of GL and move on…

Zimmer: “These So Long Springfield events have been a blessing because we’ve been allowed to personally say goodbye to our fans. In a way, [soap event producer] Mike Gold has kept Reva and Josh alive. But to answer your question, I am ready to put GL to bed. At this point, we’ve said all our goodbyes. Now I’m waiting for the phone to ring. I’m ready to embark on the next chapter of my life and career. The only problem with these reunion events is all our old feelings return, which can stunt and delay our mourning process a bit. However, it’s been great for me because I’m writing my autobiography. Fans will come up to me and remind me of certain moments I had forgotten about, so it’s been beneficial for my memoirs.

Newman: “I think I’ve already completed the mourning process. Sure, I miss the actors, crew, and fans, but luckily, through these fan events, I’m still able to stay in direct contact with all of them. As for mourning Josh and the show, I have come to terms with the loss. As GL was fading, I was in a different place than my co-stars because I was starring in a musical, Sessions. After we taped GL’s last show, I still had a job to go to the next day.”

Kim and Robert if they would have preferred a different ending to the GL finale for Reva and Josh.

Zimmer: “Our fast-forward wasn’t as bad as the rest of the storylines. But you’re right — the journey is the destination and the fast-forward was kind of lazy. The viewers deserved to see Josh and Reva work through their issues before their reconciliation happened.”

Newman: “We always said to each other that there would never be a wedding No. 4!”

Zimmer: “I think they would have reunited but they wouldn’t marry again. Reva and Josh would have spent the rest of their lives together — maybe more as friends and companions.”
