As everyone knows by now, we have always been a huge fan of the work of Renée Elise Goldsberry starting back to 2003 and her beginnings on One Life to Live in her twice Daytime Emmy-nominated performances as Evangeline Williamson.

Since OLT, Goldsberry’s career has found her on-stage in the smash musical Hamilton, then in feature film and TV series including: Waves, Altered Carbon, The Good Wife, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, The House with a Clock in Its Walls, Documentary Now, The Get Down and Evil. 

Deadline has recently released their New Hollywood Podcast and Goldsberry was a guest on the most recent episode.  While she fielded questions from the hosts about her life pre and post-Hamilton, the topic of her time on the soaps was bantered about,  Renée stood proud with the daytime community and their talent and unbelievable work ethic and how they are not given the credit they deserve.

When talking about One Life to Live, Goldsberry stated: “I learned my acting chops on that show, because we have so much work. I just think the best actors in the world are on daytime television ”

In explaining to the hosts how soaps are shot and the pace in which the actor’s are asked to perform, she related: “We take three months to film an hour and a half movie, but soap actors. shoot six hours of television a week. They’re just really talented. The stories are so broad, and they always have to continue to defend their character and some kind of really crazy situations.”

I have some really, really good friends who are still in that medium, killing the game… I still see my friends on those shows, and I watch them, and I’m super proud.”

lol,
she really still is in the coma ReRon left her in.
if she would stop and think for just a minute, she might awaken from the coma.
she might actually support ‘the best actors in the world’ instead of standing on their backs.
putting this one in a coma, was probably rerons best work EVER!!!
–;)–
expecting her to wake up on Days, on finale day.

I lost interest in OLTL when they killed her character off. I think Renee always supported her daytime colleagues while on and off the show. I do believe TPTB of soap entertainment made it difficult for her to be truly recognized for her amazing talents as they held onto their longtime favorites. She may have been in a supportive role but she exhibited lead actress talent.

Renee did an absolutely super job as Evangeline Williamson. I loved her and the character. I was so sad when Evangeline died. I am very pleased for her as her career continues to grow.

I am very pleased that Renee takes such pride in her soap opera roots. I couldn’t agree with her more. “I just think the best actors in the world are on daytime television.” And she worked with the very best of the best. Every single day, I miss our beloved One Life to Live.

I don’t completely disagree. But, there are exceptions to the statement (Ramsey).

I always enjoyed watching her on One Life and get excited any time I get to see her in other places.

I was designing a publication a week ago and working on the movie pages putting in a photo and hey – isnt that Renee? yep it was!

That night I watched the latest episode of CBS Evil and hey – that voice sounds like Renee, and then there she was! She was on the next episode too.
