NEW: Venice Interviews with Crystal Chappell & Jessica Leccia and Galen Gering & Eric Martsolf Now Available!

Courtesy/OpenBookProds

Missing Venice the Series as much as we are?  Now the series V-Shop has three new video interviews available to fans of the series!

First, On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman sat down with series star, and creator/writer/producer Crystal Chappell, and co-star Jessica Leccia for a very candid interview after a long day of shooting on the set of Venice season 3.   During  the video interview, Chappell and Leccia talk about Gina and Ani’s relationship and the complexities that develop within their story.  Will they finally get back together in season four?  Well, only Chappell knows for sure!

In addition to the long-awaited Chappell and Leccia interview, there is also a brand new interview posted with Days of our Lives stars, Galen Gering and Eric Martsolf, who on Venice, play rivals, Owen and Van!  The two discuss with Fairman the twists and turns in their on-screen relationship, and of course, there are plenty of laughs during the interview, too!

There is also a new one-on-one chat with Annika Noelle, the young actress who came in and took the place of Gina Tognoni in the key role of Sami.  Annika talks with Michael about how she ended up being cast on Venice, and the opportunity she was given to play the darker side of  Sami and the  journey the character takes in season three.

The videos are available for a limited time via download purchase, and you can find them in the Venice V-Shop under the VTS Season 3 Special Features Icon.

Let me get this straight….we now have to purchase a download to watch a behind the scenes interview??? Did I read this correctly? I know the online soaps need funds but this is seriously tacky.

I agree Robbyrob. They are asking people to pay for what are essentially marketing/promo videos. They saw a demand when people started asking for the interviews after hearing about them. Then they decided to try to capitalize off of the perceived demand. I think it is absolutely ridiculous. When you try to monetize everything, there will be backlash. People only have so much money to spend to support a webseries. Venice has subscriptions, sponsorships, merchandise, music, etc. That is plenty of opportunity to make money off the fans. Enough is enough.

I would happily pay to watch the CC and JL interview but it doesn’t seem to be in the VShop any more. Does anyone know where I can watch it?

Nancy Lee Grahn Debuted 25 Years Ago Today as General Hospital’s Alexis Davis

Back on September 26th, 1996, (25 years ago today!) the new character of Alexis Davis made her debut on ABC’s General Hospital, and brought to the iconic soap opera, the talents of Nancy Lee Grahn.

Grahn, had already made a name for herself with her captivating portrayal of lawyer Julia Wainwright Capwell on Santa Barbara for which she won a Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy in 1989, in a tie with AMC’s Debbi Morgan.

Back in April, General Hospital, marked this milestone with a special episode for Grahn, that could be remembered come next year’s Emmys.

Alexis, or shall we call her “Natasha”, was introduced on GH as the daughter of Mikkos Cassadine and his mistress, whose throat was slit by Helena Cassadine, which has played into Alexis’ story for many years to come.  At the time of her entrance to the show, Wendy Riche was GH’s executive producer.

Through the years, viewers have witnessed Grahn’s portrayal of: a tough legal eagle, an honest depiction of a woman battling the bottle, failed romances, while all the time being a loving and faithful mother to her three daughters, Sam, Molly, and Kristina.

Nancy won her second Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy, this time for her role as Alexis in 2012, and has been a multi-nominee in the Lead Actress category for her performances on the ABC daytime drama series.

Kate Grahn, Nancy’s daughter took to social media within the last few hours since we posted this story to share a video on how thankful she and her mom are to GH fans and Nancy’s time on the show which afforded her the ability to have and raise Kate.  Check that out below.

Here’s to Nancy for giving us 25 years of her on-screen work as Alexis!

Congratulate Nancy and tell us your favorite Alexis Davis moments via the comment section.
