The Gina Tognoni Interview – One Life to Live

It is always hard to say goodbye…and this week on One Life to Live, the first of the early exits that viewers have known about for some time is coming to fruition.  It affects one of Llanview’s most famous cliques and families, the fabulous Cramer women.  First up, two-time Daytime Emmy winner Gina Tognoni bids farewell to Llanview as Kelly heads off to London with her man Joey Buchanan in tow to reunite with her son, Zane.  Today’s episode signals the dwindling down of some of the key members of the cast with Gina first, and Robin Strasser (Dorian) set to exit tomorrow.

On-Air On-Soaps had the opportunity to speak with Gina in this exclusive interview to get her thoughts on the end of her run as Kelly Cramer, a role that started her soap career.  Gina also acknowledges that her second time around was not as easy finding Kelly’s groove, and is having a difficult time like many of you, processing the upcoming network television loss of One Life.

And while one door closes another one, as they say, always opens.  Gina is ready to spread her wings either on a hit primetime show or a hit daytime soap.  You will learn which ones strike her fancy and what daytime bad boy she would love to be paired with. Now, while Gina has wrapped OLTL, she still feels there is more work that she wants to do to bring the fans closer to their Llanview favorites.  That is why Gina is spearheading the efforts for a very special upcoming benefit concert for the American Red Cross in October that is a must-attend for all soap fans.  We will fill you in on all the details!

So what makes Gina Tognoni so special to us, and we hope to you?  She has heart, she has depth, she has guts, she is a fighter, and she is a master communicator.  And with that, we bring you this farewell interview with Gina!  Spoiler: You might need a hankie or two.

Looking at the photographic images of your final day on the set of One Life to Live, they brought in a cake, and you cried a bit, and you were with Michael Easton (John).  How did you feel during those final moments in Llanview?

GINA:

That was on June 24th, and it was not a heavy day as far as material.  There were a few scenes with Michael, and I cannot tell you how happy I was to have my final day with him.  I am such a big fan of his.  I think he has one of the most generous awesome souls to work with, and I didn’t get to work enough with him. But I was always happy to see him on the script, because that meant we would be working together. That was always a really positive thing.  I did not get to see Robin Strasser (Dorian) very much that day, but I know she was wrapping up as well.  In fact, she was wrapping up right around the same time I was, but I was not able to connect with her that much and neither was Kassie DePaiva (Blair) around that much.  So the Cramer women stuff happened a week or so before I taped my last scenes.  So we did get some time to bond together, but you know what?  I was thinking about it today.  It is so hard to put into words everything that I feel, but One Life to Live was just a great place to work.  It was a great group of people and everyone wanted this show to succeed, and it so sad that it is going away as we know it.  And as far as what it does online, that is yet to be seen.  But as far as the years and what they have put together as a team at a television studio, this was something really special.

MICHAEL:

What about the remarkable team at One Life to Live made it even that more a special place to work for you, especially being a part of the A-list cast?

GINA:

Everybody seemed to have each other’s back and that was sort of the energy there. Nobody was really hurtful to one another.  If anyone did say or do anything that was hurtful, everybody would be able to talk to one another.  It was a terrific environment, and as an actor I was able to always kind of do my best, be who I am, and not feel like I have to put on any airs or anything.  So that is why in the picture you saw, I was getting so choked up in the end.  I was extremely grateful to spend 18 months there this past go-around.  It was not long enough in many ways, and there were so many things about Kelly I wanted to see developed.  I think a lot of the development of Kelly and her coming back on the canvas happened when unfortunately there was so much going on in Llanview.  It is what it is.  There were many things going on that the fans loved about Llanview, and Kelly was one of them. They integrated me into the 18 months I was on the show in lots of different ways and it had its high points! There was finding her mother’s killer, Joey coming back in town, and hooking up with McBain, and in each one of these events people were kind of getting to know Kelly again.  When I left the show before I was a young woman, then I came back as a full on woman.  The one thing about Kelly’s energy was that it was quirky and goofy and naïve at times.  But as a woman, it is very hard to play those qualities and still be a mother, and a responsible editor at The Sun, and someone who you take relatively seriously as a love interest.

MICHAEL:

I think fans at times, had a difficult time trying to invest in Kelly, as she would be paired with certain people for a while or be in certain storylines, and then things were dropped.  And you are one helluva actress!  So I think people were waiting for a story to take hold and take off big-time.  Now at the end of your run, Kelly is consumed with getting back to her son Zane, who is in London!

GINA:

I think Ron Carlivati (OLTL, head writer) was trying to find this balance with her.  We needed to talk more about Kelly’s son, Zane, and we were starting to do that.  At the end of my run they decided to push the Zane angle.  Some fans liked that, and some fans thought, “Oh please… Give me a break.”  So there was a little bit of criticism to that, and I get it.  But I just think the bigger picture was we had to get to know Kelly, and over the last 18 months, I think there was some positive and negative about that.

MICHAEL:

I think it looked a bit manic; that after wanting to get back together with her true love Joey for so long, and she did, that now suddenly she has this overwhelming need to get back to her child in London, pronto!  Were those scenes hard to play or pull off, because quickly her agenda became getting to Zane?

GINA:

First of all, you have to make it work, and I think I did.  Yes, it was like we got to scene A without getting to Scene B, and we jumped from A to C, and it was disjointed.  I can’t “un-joint” words, but I can try to make it come from an emotional place.  I know we never really explored why all of a sudden she needed to go see Zane.  Can the audience believe it?  Yes, that is plausible, but it leaves you questioning, “Where did that come from?”  And of course, we never saw it answered because it was time to go.  Yes, it is hard and can be difficult, and it has made me very sensitive to what the viewers are being fed when you have been doing this for awhile.

MICHAEL:

I want to go back to our discussion at the Moving Down the Block Party in February 2010, when OLTL moved into AMC’s old digs.  You had recently returned to the show, and when I asked you who would you like to play Kelly’s love interest, you told me you wanted to be paired with Michael Easton.  You wanted to see Kelly and McBain.  You obviously must have been elated when it actually did happen!

GINA:

I loved the scenes with the two of them in the Minute Man Hotel.  You talk about brilliant writing?  It was great!  You put two people in the same room who should not be doing something like that, and then you watch it and can go, “Hey, wait a minute. That does kind of work.”  The only reason I thought Kelly and McBain were so great together is they both have a checkered past.  They have such a deep availability emotionally, and there are lots of positives there, and that was me saying, “Hey guys, that could work.”  I am telling you, Michael Easton is a lovely person to work with.  But I think they wanted to hang Kelly’s hat with Joey.  And that is tough, because you are filling Nathan Fillion’s (Ex-Joey) shoes, and that does not in anyway take away from Tom Degnan and what he brought to the role.  We were uphill in a lot of areas, and in my experience in doing soaps, at times I felt like I had to keep my mouth shut, because I needed them to find it as much as me.  It was a very tight line to walk.  I am not there to write, I am there to act.

MICHAEL:

I think perhaps, it was difficult for you as Kelly to be come anchored. You had so many people coming and going in and out of the show, and so many old and new characters they needed to write for, and then Tom Degnan appears as the new Joey, who nobody had seen before in the role.

GINA:

Problem number one: I think nobody knew this Joey, so it gave Tom Degnan an uphill battle.  Tom did a great job and I really dug him.  I loved Tom and working with Robin and Kassie.  I also loved watching Bree Williamson (Jessica) who is adorable and really fun to watch, and Florencia Lozano (Tea) is just a little firecracker, but I think we really had not found Kelly’s voice yet, and I will say that as an actress, because it is a process.  I think we would have found it if we had more time.  I said that to Ron Carlivati, “I think we needed more time.”  And he sort of agreed with me.

MICHAEL:

I thought Trevor St. John (Todd now Victor Jr.) and you could have made an exciting couple there for a while.  When the two of you were working at The Sun together, I thought the sparks would really start to fly, but then …it fizzled.

GINA:

Talk about your heavy-hitters!  I know!  But then, “boom” no manifestation.  Working with Trevor was fabulous and really fun.  I think he takes chances.  It is hard to do daytime because there is so little rehearsal and we move so fast.  Trevor really goes for it, and he really makes a choice.  He gives you a lot to react off of.  Kassie DePaiva was fun energy, and Robin Strasser will work a scene from every angle you can possibly think of. So every single one of these people at One Life, including all the actors, and Ron and Frank Valentini, our executive producer, were doing their best trying to keep this thing going, and that is what I take from the show.  Not necessarily that we did not quite find my voice.  When I walked away, and it was my last time, I had some sadness.  I did not come back so I could win more Emmys.  I mean, yes, you want to keep accomplishing things in your life, but I wanted to come back and really give Kelly a wonderful voice. Trying to be in the process of finding that, and then having the show cancelled, was a real heartbreaker!

MICHAEL:

How did you get the news that One Life to Live was cancelled?  Were you at the studio that day when ABC Daytime President Brian Frons gave his bi-coastal video conference with the bad news to both OLTL and AMC?

GINA:

No, I was off that day.  I was in between episodes, and my agent texted me and she said, “Oh my goodness.  I just heard.  I will call you in five minutes.”  And I am like, “Oh man.”  And I am thinking, “I can’t imagine it’s just All My Children, because she wouldn’t be texting like this.”  I just could not quite believe it; to have both shows cancelled at once!  It is like this big gaping hole.  I am sorry, it really is, and it just does not make any sense.  It made sense to someone, because someone pulled the plug.  Daytime has been so good to me. I have invested more than a few years in it.  I have had nurses come up to me who I know, and whether it is in a nursing home or whatever it is, and they tell me for people who are watching daytime, it brightens their day.  I know, I have seen it.  We were a part of that, and to see that deteriorate is sad.

What does this mean for you in terms of the future, and if you fit into the picture when OLTL moves online?  Since you were written off early, did you not receive a proposal from Prospect Park like the other actors?

GINA:

I really don’t know where I fit within this new Prospect Park venture.  I also don’t know what will happen with any other perspective daytime jobs.  We will see.  Yes, I have spoken to other shows since the cancellation of OLTL.  I am flattered and we will see where that all leads.  At the moment, I am in New Jersey with my husband.  I love the east coast and it’s my home.  There is quite a bit of acting opportunity here in the Northeast, which I am extremely excited about.  There are over 22 shows being produced in New York over the next year; including pilots and existing shows.  So there is so much going on and I am excited about the new chapter in my life.  I have no idea of what is coming around the corner.  So you talk about having faith?  This is when I truly have to have faith in the process.  And, it is not the easiest thing to do every day.  I am here to say, it is possible.  It is about taking a moment and trying not to act out of fear or scarcity.  You have to remember, you have been taking care of yourself this far and you will get yourself to the next place.  But, it is about staying centered, relaxed, and grateful.

MICHAEL:

When you look at the different network primetime shows, is there somewhere you can see yourself fitting in?  And, what would you like to play?

GINA:

I absolutely would love to play a role on The Good Wife and Blue Bloods.  I would love to play a detective or an investigative reporter.  I like the police procedural aspect of those shows.  I really dig it!

MICHAEL:

What about the four remaining network daytime soap operas?   Is there one you sort of fancy and could see yourself on?

GINA:

© JPI Studios

I would say Y&R has always been the most glam, well-done soap.  I think Maria Arena Bell (Y&R executive producer and head writer) is terrific.  I am also a fan of B&B.  I think it is an adorable show and it’s out there, and it does not try to be more than it is.  I think Brad Bell (B&B executive producer and head writer) is really neat, too.  I would love to play opposite Billy Miller (Billy Abbott, Y&R)!  I think he is so adorable and vivacious.  I have known him from various events we have both been at.  He is really cool and I dig him.  I think he is a great young talent.  So I think it would be really fun to run around with him on Y&R.  I gotta tell you, CBS is a great place. It would be hilarious if we could bring Dinah from Guiding Light to Genoa City!  Wouldn’t that be interesting?  And can they do that?  And if not, maybe have me come on as a distant cousin of Dinah.

MICHAEL:

Where are those two Daytime Emmys that you won as Dinah on Guiding Light housed?

GINA:

They are in my office in my home.  That office is where I do a lot of my thinking and a lot of my quiet time.  I think and look at them.  And let me tell you something, I wish I could drag them along to every audition. (Laughs)  So I would go in and say, “OK, before we start, here they are and let me act around them.” (Laughs) They are such a reminder of what hard work and being honest can manifest for you.  Those were the most awesome storylines on Guiding Light. Those were issues that were emotional and people could connect to them, and they were earned.  It reminded me of what good soap can be.  If it is written on the page that is one thing, but you have got to play it.  In 2004 when I joined Guiding Light, I actually asked my mother, “Well, should I do this?  Should I move back to New York?”  And she said, “Absolutely.  Don’t think twice.”  And I remember thinking, “Oh, I don’t know.  I am out here in L.A….”  And for one minute I was regretting it, but I was so wrong.  It was the best and richest experience I have ever had in daytime.  I loved working with Rob Bogue (Ex-Mallet, GL).  He was so funny and joyous.  I look back at it now and realize what an awesome time that was.  It is so funny that we don’t realize how great things were sometimes, until we look back and have some distance from them.  There is one thing I can say and that is, appreciate every moment that you are in.

MICHAEL:

You left early from Guiding Light, too!

© JPI Studios

GINA:

Yes.  I took off to Bosnia in a Helicopter!  Now I could not figure out how I would get to Bosnia in a Helicopter? (Laughs)  That was a little strange.  At Guiding Light, my contract was up, and it was my first exit storyline, and it was very similar to OLTL.  The difference was at One Life, I actually had the desire to stay till the very end.

MICHAEL:

So to clarify; at One Life your contract was up and the show decided to have you exit at this point.  Did you want to stay on?

GINA:

They needed to shut things down, and start to have people exit story, but I would have been open to staying on and be with my friends and the audience.  But it was time to go. And for them it was a financial thing, and it was tough being the first to go.  I felt sad.  Now Guiding Light was a little hairier.  It was right at the end, and my contract was up and things were unclear, and it was time to go.  And the fact that we were in Peapack at that time, and things were kind of going south, and the wheels were coming off, and as much as I admire the people that I was working for and with; it was time to go.  OLTL, that was sad… that was sad.

MICHAEL:

And while there is sadness, you are putting some of your incredible Gina T. energy into a very special and big benefit coming up with lots of soap stars.  Fill me in!

GINA:

Courtesy/AmericanRedCross

It’s the American Red Cross benefit, The Rock Show for Charity on October 8th in New York City.  People can get tickets online at www.rockshowforcharity.org.  Tickets are approximately $ 115.00, and a portion of the proceeds goes to the American Red Cross Relief Fund.  The benefit will be a concert like we have had for the last three years, where Bradley Cole (Ex-Jeffrey, GL) leads the band. Then, we will have incredible performers from OLTL including: David Gregory (Ford), Kristen Alderson (Starr), Kelley Missal (Dani), Josh Kelly (Cutter) and Kim Zimmer (Echo) who will all sing. We will also have auction items that will be going up September 1st online through eBay.  People can bid on some very cool things, like a vintage twenty-year-old jacket that Bob Woods (Bo, OLTL) wore around 1985.  It is a fabulous leather jacket! There will be a signed script from the entire cast of OLTL, and signed cowboy hats, and Todd Manning Sun newspapers, too.  Those proceeds from the eBay auction will go 100% to the American Red Cross Relief fund.

MICHAEL:

Why did you decide to get involved with this benefit?

GINA:

I am the bridge between Bradley, the American Red Cross, and One Life to Live. Since I worked at OLTL, I had available resources and the talent, and Bradley got the band.  So I am the middle guy or the facilitator, if you will.  And believe me, I have asked myself many times, how did I fall into this?  But because it’s for a good cause and it’s a chance for everyone to say goodbye, I said to myself, “Why not?  Lets see if we can do it.”  We did the event last year and it had a really great turnout, and I think this year will even be  bigger!

MICHAEL:

Where is the event going to be held?

GINA:

This year we have it at the historical Soho Playhouse, and it’s about a 200-seat theatre.  So it is set-up for a really great show.  We are going to rock it out, and I am not going to sing, but I may do a little back-up. (Laughs)  We will leave the singing to Kristen and Kelley and Kim.  But, I am going to be the host introducing the folks along with Kristen. There is a bar downstairs and people can get their drinks and bring them into the seating area. We really want to get people out, so we can say goodbye to them.

MICHAEL:

So if fans come to The Rock Show for Charity, there will definitely be an opportunity for people to say goodbye for now to cast members of One Life to Live, and get some “face” time with them?

GINA:

You are definitely going to get one-on-one time with the actors.  You can definitely get things signed.  We want to see everyone we can.

MICHAEL:

How was the One Life to Live Fan Club Weekend a few weeks ago?  And, “The Ladies Night Out” event that you were a part of?

GINA:

That was very nice, and you know they had it sold out to over 140 people!  That whole thing was great.  Hundreds of people showed up.  It was really well done and I was really impressed.  Your heart just broke going, “Why can’t we have this every year?”  It was special with this being the end of OLTL’s run on ABC.

MICHAEL:

So many fans have been broken hearted, and rightfully so, in losing their favorite characters and actors on both All My Children and One Life to Live. What were people saying to you at the fan club events?  What sentiments did they share with you, and in the end how did it make you feel?   It seems like all of us in the industry are being emotionally affected by the changes, just as much as the loyal fans.

GINA:

Courtesy/ABC

People were saying to me, “You have brought such joy to my life.  You are terrific.”   “I loved your strength, whether it be playing Dinah or Kelly.”  “Thank you for making me laugh.” “I love the Cramer girls and just the way you all loved one another.” “It reminded me of the relationship I had with my mother and my sister.” “I don’t know what I am going to do now without this hour of television.  I have been out of work for more than two years and I need to find a job, but at 2PM I could just take a moment as I loved OLTL”.  It never stopped… the amount of love was so overwhelming.  The next day, I was drained and yet uplifted.  I poured out my heart when the fans came to me, and I gave them my love and support, and told them to hang in there and that, “You are going to see us again.  I don’t know where or when, but you are going to see us all again.”  Just feeling that and being able to share that with the fans was an awesome experience. You felt so uplifted that day, and the next day, I felt such sadness.  It is because it is an ending of a very large cycle in all of our lives.  It’s very scary, and yet at the same time you have to try and find some peace within it… and that is not always instant and can take some time, but it is there.  So I am going through it, just as much as everyone else is.

I was at the OLTL fan club weekend. When presented with difficult decision on whos line to wait on first from the talented cast….we chose Gina’s. She is so down to earth and seemed genuinely appreciative of our thoughts and comments. I agree that the writers never knew how to develop her character since her return. During Heather Tom’s run as Kelly, the writers trampled on her so much that very little was left to like. I was so looking forward to Gina’s strength to bring the real Kelly back, but the decision to not have her story involve Kevin… Read more »

I love her for different reasons, not as much as Kelly but my beloved GL as Dinah. She torn the hell out that part and 2 Emmys prove it. I hope she pops on a soap again, she is to strong of an actress not be written in the correct way. Ron C. didn’t know how to write Kelly and it showed and its so sad. I could tell from reading the article she has a big warm spot for Dinah and GL…that tickle me pink and rainbow! I would love it, if P&G would allow Gina go to Y&R… Read more »

Michael thanks for this interview with Gina. She’s an amazing actress and a beautiful and warm person, so down to earth and real. She’s right that the writing for Kelly was never developed as they didn’t know which direction to take her or who to put her with but she still gave it her all in every scene. I can tell she was frustrated by the writing as much as I was but as she says, she is there to act not write. I loved her as Dinah so much and she just delivered so many powerful scenes so I… Read more »

If Prospect Park has any sense they will rehire you (if you’d do it) to bring Zane to Llanview. Hey, I don’t even care if they have to make him another “hunk” to make it work for ratings.
Hey could get involved with ? Dani or someone, but def. bring Kellly (Gina) back!

The way she’s talking about YR/Billy Miller it sounds like she wants the role of Victoria Newman. uuuuum, no thank you. Victoria is already taken. And I will only support the ‘Villy’ pairing with the currents actors in the role. Besides, with their fanbase, I sure hope MAB is thinking the same thing. She can’t afford pissing off more fans.

That’s nice she wants to be on Y&R but sorry that was all a bit too much. As someone else said the role of Victoria opposite Billy Miller is already taken and those two together are the best couple in years. I wish Gina good luck in the future.

Thanks for the interview! I enjoyed Gina equally as Dinah and Kelly, and wish her continued success. I don’t think she necessarily wants the role of Victoria; but she’s very obvious about wanting Billy Miller, and who wouldn’t? I’ll admit, though, that I find it irksome that she’s being so vocal about getting onto the show and into story with BM when he’s in a very popular pairing that fans (including me!) are dying to see reunited. I definitely appreciate that it’s her career she’s concerned with, but it still disappointed me a little to read that.

Ok, I dug him it’s cool, who talks like this 16 year olds? We do not need anymore new characters on Y&R And I beleive she turned down the role of Victoria way back when.

Thank you Gina for that wonderful interview. I think its great that you were (just thinking) about the idea of coming to the Y@R. I know you would be an excellent match for Victoria. I know you didnt mean you wanted to replace her. It would make good competition. Thanks again. Look forward to seeing you wherever that might be.

I guess no one will ever accuse Gina of holding back and not saying what she really feels. She wants what she wants and if it blows up other stories, so be it. Love her. Wasn’t crazy about Kelly. Best wishes for future success. Watch your back Amelia Heinle. :O

Glad Gina got her wish about Kelly and McBain. They had amazing chemistry too bad it was short lived. I actually wanted Kelly to marry McBain and have his baby but oh well

Days Of Our Lives

Kassie DePaiva, Nathan Purdee & Taylor Purdee Talk ‘Killian & The Comeback Kids’, One Life to Live & Eve’s Reign of Terror on DAYS

It’s ‘all in the family’ + a dear friend that makes the film Killian and the Comeback Kids something that soap fans will want to see. In it, daytime veterans, Kassie DePaiva (Ex-GL, OLTL, GH and Days) and Nathan Purdee (Ex-Y&R and OLTL) are featured in the new movie directed, written and starring Nathan’s talented son, Taylor.

One Life to Live fans will get a kick out of that Kassie and Nathan play a married couple in the film.  In story, a millennial (Taylor A. Purdee) comes home to live with his parents in a depressed rural town after getting a college degree in the big city. The film illustrates the issues facing many of America’s youth today, which could not be more apropos for the times we are living with many children moving back in with their parents. However, the movie shares an uplifting message filled with original music from Taylor’s folk-rock band, The Cumberland Kids.

Michael Fairman TV chatted with Kassie, Nathan and Taylor to get the inside scoop on: collaborating together on this project, revisiting Llanview with some memories and thoughts on the cancellation of the beloved soap, plus Kassie’s last turn on Days of our Lives as an unhinged Eve Donovan – a performance that just may garner attention come Daytime Emmy time next year.

This conversation was filled with candor, humor, and a parent’s love for their child. Killian and the Comeback Kid is playing in selected theatres and dates including tonight Friday, September 25th in Atlanta, and October 2nd in Chicago. For more movie info go to the film’s website here And now here’s what Kassie, Nathan and Taylor shared.

I was really intrigued by the film. Taylor, how did you lure your dad to be in the movie?

TAYLOR:  Oh my gosh, it was the craziest negation ever.

I bet! (Laughs)

TAYLOR:  When I was a kid, Roberta, my mom, made me promise to always write him roles.  So, it was kind of obligatory.

KASSIE:  That is so funny!

TAYLOR:  It’s true.

Had you met Kassie before, or was this the first time? 

TAYLOR:  I knew Kassie from when my dad and her were doing One Life to Live together.   Five years before I was filming this movie, Nathan texted me, “Hey!  Kassie and Jim (DePaiva) are right by your dorm room.  You should go see them!”  So, catching up as an adult was so nice.  I had a non-parentally controlled grown-up hang-out with her.

Photo: KarmicReleaseLTD

What was the journey this film, Killian and the Comeback Kids, went on as far as from the writing of it, to production, to its completion?

TAYLOR:  Well, the front half was surprisingly quick.  I think writing it through to having it finished was about 18 months, and there were about 6 months of, “how’s it going to come out,” and then, we thought we knew what was going to happen, and we were all getting ready for it to hit in movie theatres in the spring when the world ended, and that’s how we got here three years later.

Nathan, tell me about the role you play; because Kassie and you are husband and wife in the film.

NATHAN: Well, yeah, you kind of covered it! (Laughs)  I play her husband, and she plays my wife, and I appreciated the casting situation.  It’s interesting how Taylor chose Kassie because he did say that he wanted someone who was close to his mom’s personality.  I couldn’t think of anybody else other than Kassie because the only difference is Kassie is taller, but they both are such loving, caring people.  They always want to mother you and make sure you’re fed, and you’re safe, and you’re happy, and neither one of them knows the word, “no,” when it comes to the people who they’re taking care of.  I love Kassie anyway, so good for me.

KASSIE:  Yeah, they cut our love scene, and I don’t know what that’s about. (Laughs)

Kassie, what do you remember from when you first met Nathan?  You were at One Life, right?

KASSIE:  No, when I first met Nathan, we were in San Antonio, and we were doing an appearance.  I met Bobbie Eakes (Ex-Krystal, AMC and Macy, B&B) for the first time then too, but I was on The Guiding Light, and I was singing, and Nathan was there.  Nathan and I sat beside each other.  I honestly felt like I had known Nathan my entire life.  We were drinking margaritas and talking, talking, talking, talking, talking, talking.

NATHAN:  Yep!

KASSIE:  Nathan and my husband, Jim are very good friends.  I have to say, Nathan was so lovely when I was going through my cancer journey.  He came to see me every week, sometimes twice a week when I was in the hospital, and he would come up, and he would hang out with Jim.  I will never, ever forget how lovely he was (it makes me tear up right now) to be there with support for my husband and myself as we went through that.  So, when Nathan asked me to be his wife in the film, I thought, “Well, hey, you practically live with me now, so that sounds good.”

So, Taylor, how did they do on-screen as husband and wife?

TAYLOR:  They’re fantastic.  We’ve only had one test screening, but one of the most consistent things audiences tell me is that they’re not just great together, but they each have such a quiet, brooding depth to them that you can’t help but imagine the back-story that they’re not talking about

KASSIE:  That’ll be the sequel!

TAYLOR:  Killian and the Comeback Kids 2: They Comeback Kids Comeback.

KASSIE:  They’ll come back again!

NATHAN:  Thanks for planting that seed in his head, Kassie.

TAYLOR:  It was important for me to try to synthesize a mixed-race couple.  So, it was really great to be able to have them, not just be so great together, but there was also the issue of we had to have a little girl who looked like she could not just be my sister, but also both of their daughter.  Creating a family from scratch was great because Nathan and Kassie already had the rapport.

Did you watch them on One Life to Live together? 

TAYLOR:  Yeah!  I was in school most of the time, but I would go to set, and over the last 10 years, friends would send me YouTube clips from the show because for some reason none of the soaps are streaming.  There’s not like a soap Netflix!  It kind of needs to happen!  Soaps, they’re epic; there are decades worth of episodes and shows.

In this film, music is the backdrop.  It’s your music and your band that is featured?

TAYLOR:  Yeah, my best friend growing up and I were staring to write folk music around the time when I was deciding what script I wanted to make into a film.  We wrote the soundtrack, all the music that people sing, and the underscore, which was surprisingly the most fun part of it all.

Kassie what did you think of Taylor’s music?

 ASSIE:  I think it’s wonderful.   I love music. It’s totally in the heart of me, and I just think that this movie is so timely. Kids these days are having to deal with not knowing what their future is going to be.  In the film, my son comes home, and he is trying to find himself, and he throws himself into his art and his music.  I just think there are a lot of people right now who are going through that.  I think it is extremely relatable, even more so than when you wrote it, Taylor.  I think people are looking for some type of connection, and I think this little movie is a good start.  It’s about people pulling together, and it’s got a strong rooting factor, and you want people to succeed, and it is great.  It takes you on a really nice journey.

You have some dates coming up where the film will play in a movie theatre- one is on September 25th in Atlanta and then another one on October 2nd in Chicago.  Taylor, how do you feel about making appearances for the film during the pandemic? You’re going with masks on? 

TAYLOR:  Oh yeah.  We will be in a bubble; we are just getting into a car and sticking together.  I and John Donchak, who plays opposite me through the whole film, are going to all of those dates, and my co-songwriter, who also appears in the film, will be in Atlanta, if not at both premieres.

NATHAN:  And let me add, please, they’re going against my wishes as a parent, but he is 28- years-old, so all I can say is that we are hoping for the best because we want him to be safe.  He is very determined and passionate about it, so he’s got our support.

Taylor, in your story, why does Killian come home and live with his parents? 

TAYLOR: His plan at the time is that he has just graduated from a pricey university, and he is supposed to go off with his bandmate on a modest music tour.  He comes home to get his stuff and see his parents after graduating, but his bandmate drops out, and so the plan falls apart, and that’s how he gets stuck in this town and everything is just kind of falling apart. The plan that he had for his life after college gets pulled out right out from under him.

Nathan, when Kassie and you were on One Life for years, you weren’t there when it ended, as you had already left the show.  How did you feel upon learning it had been canceled by ABC?

NATHAN:  I was so disconnected by that time.  I just knew it was ending, and it wasn’t the first soap to go.  I saw it happening when the other shows started being canceled due to, I could be wrong about this, but I put the blame on reality TV.  By that point I had moved on in my personal and private life.  I was doing a lot of theatre then, traveling back and forth from North Carolina, really trying to keep busy, and fighting off the depression of not working full-time.  I missed Jim and Kassie the most, but I was thrilled that I could bump into them at any time and visit with them.  I kept in touch with Hillary B. Smith (Ex-Nora) and Bob Woods (Ex-Bo) and also, Timothy Stickney (Ex-RJ); in fact, Timothy Stickney’s wife did Taylor’s hair for the film.

Kassie, how do you feel years later about the cancellation of One Life to Live?

KASSIE:  I still miss it.  I loved it. The hard part about this show in particular being canceled is –one – that there wasn’t closure on it.  It kind of happened randomly, and there was still a lot more story to tell.  They kept it going on General Hospital, where they’ll bring some characters there.  So, it’s still in peoples’ minds. The second part is the friendships and the family connections that you’ve made over the many years that you’re there. Nothing lasts forever, that’s for sure, but as you were saying, there’s no streaming of these shows, but if you catch an episode on YouTube, One Life to Live, truly stands alone.  It just has great stories, great characters, and there is connection there that is very real.

Kassie, your last go-around at DAYS was just epic.  Did you guys see it?

TAYLOR:  I did see pieces of some of it.  I caught some of the “super villain”!

Photo: JPI

Eve went in guns blazing, evil as all get out, but so heartbreaking at the same time while she was torturing Ben (Rob Scott Wilson).  What did you think about all of that, Kassie?

KASSIE:  I was really hesitant to watch it because I remembered how “super villain” I was.  I remember getting on the plane, and Jimmy said, “How was it?” and I said, “I’ll probably never work again a day in my life. I’m like this (evil laughs) muah-ha-ha, muah-ha-ha kind of character.”  I mean, you hated what Eve was doing, and you were supposed to, but I think that they did a great job with production values, and it was reasonable what she was doing because she was going off the edge. It’s great to be able to sink your teeth into something that is so out-there and completely different from your own life.  I mean, it was exhausting.  Every day, I would come home and just be like, “Oh my God, give me a cocktail.” Eve had justification for her revenge, even as wrong as it was, and she needed to be heard, and she needed closure, and she made a bunch of wrong moves, and did a bunch of bad, bad, bad things, and now, she is probably in a mental institution somewhere, so…

You and I were on set of DAYS and I was going to interview you.  If I recall, at that point, you did not even know what the story arc was.

KASSIE:  No, I didn’t. When I arrived and looked at the script, I’m like, “Well, who blew up that wedding?”  Then, all of the sudden, “Oh, no!  I blew up the wedding.  This is bad!  I probably am not going to be coming back on this show again.”  I look at story and go, “Uh-oh.  There’s a shut door.”  I like open doors and open windows.

Photo: JPI

Taylor, what is your project? Are you continuing to write?  What do you see in the future for yourself?

TAYLOR:  This is my life for me.  The next thing that I think we are releasing is actually something that I made before this because everything is backwards, which is a documentary (very different) about Central American politics, which I’m hoping is out next year.  In terms of new scripts, everybody is a bit torn.  I kind of want to do a biopic of Lee Grant, or I want to do a blues/punk version of something inspired by The Shining.

Well, those are very polar opposite!

TAYLOR:  Yeah, aren’t they?

NATHAN:  Now you see what I’m living with. (Laughs)

Photo: IMDB

Nathan, you must be proud of Taylor, and it must be very cool to see your son have these multi-faceted talents.

NATHAN:  Of course, I’m proud of him and it’s great, but it’s strange because watching Taylor develop into the person he has developed into and continues to, made me realize that I hadn’t had the type of courage he has.  I had my dreams and certain things that I was very courageous about in my life.  I certainly don’t see him doing some things the way I did them, because he has more common sense than I do when it comes to life choices. His courage just blows my mind.  Most of my closest friends are professional musicians, and many of them, if I were to namedrop, you would know who they are, and they’ve had successful careers, and I’ve always looked up to them and admired them, but I was never that guy.  I just wanted to be a musician because I knew them and we were friends, but I didn’t have the discipline to do what they did, and I certainly didn’t have the God-given talent.  I play a little bit of keyboard and a little bit of saxophone myself, but I have to play one song 757 times before I even start to feel comfortable with it, and Taylor can sit down and start strumming on his guitar, and the next thing you know, he’s written a whole song.  It just blows my mind how creative and talented he is.  He has been surrounded by creative and talented people all of his life. He has absorbed a lot from the different people and the different opportunities he’s had, and I look at him sometimes, and I even say it to my wife, “Who is this kid?”  I like to share this story.  We went to see Taylor do Hamlet.  I’m guessing he was 15 or 16-years-old at the time. I’m watching him doing Hamlet, and I’m sitting in the chair, and I’m crying because I’m thinking to myself, “Oh, my God, he is so good!”  I told Taylor, “I would not tackle Hamlet on a football field, yet alone on stage.”  It made me realize that we had a force to be reckoned with.  He’s pretty amazing.  The bad news for him is that I always tell him the truth, and I lied to him once, and he called me out on it, and I promised that I would never lie to him again.  So, be careful what you ask me because I will tell you the truth from this point on.

Photo: KarmicReleaseLTD

KASSIE:  Taylor was also the director of this film, which I mean, “What the hell!”  This guy is doing everything.  He was deciding on the shots, he was deciding on the lighting, he was deciding this and that, he was editing the script, I’m like, “Holy cannoli!”  He’s like, “No, I want her to wear that shirt; I want her to do this.”  You would do the scene, and he’d come over and talk to you a little bit.  I mean, he was just awesome; Taylor brought so much insight to my character because I’m like, “What’s my relationship, and who are all of these kids?  Are we a loving family?”  We did it very quickly, too.  Taylor, look at what you’ve accomplished, and it is such a beautiful piece of art!

TAYLOR:  From a more functional standpoint as a director, one of the really great things about having the two of them was that Kassie came in half-way through filming, and we’d been working with the young actor/musicians a lot.  Some of them, it was their first big job, but pretty much all of them had worked before.  On Kassie’s first day, they didn’t know what they were in for.  She just rolled onto set, and all of the sudden, the stakes and bar of how to be an actor just changed.  From that point on, when Kassie and Nathan started to work with the band, we knew those were going to be fun days because there was going to be acting involved.  Everyone else just had to come up to their level, which was great for me because it gave me so much more to edit with.

Taylor, who are your musical influences?   

TAYLOR:  That’s a really good question.  My musical obsession for the last few years has been this guy, named Josh Ritter, who is kind of a singer/songwriter/folk guy.  My real-life band, The Cumberland Kids, is named after one of his songs.  Also, Weird Al Yankovic, has been a massive inspiration for me and my songwriting partners.

So, your vibe is this folk-rock.

TAYLOR:  Yeah, that’s what I’m writing mostly.  My listening is kind of all over the place, but definitely that is what I’m writing.

Kassie, who do you like listening to?

KASSIE:  It all depends on what cocktail I have in my hand.

Photo: JPI

NATHAN:  Let me chime in on that too! I like jazz, blues, and country music, but imagine what my house was like because I have a lot of instruments here, always with the hope that Taylor would at least become interested in music.  I have congas, bass guitar, keyboards, you name it, and for a while, he wasn’t interested at all, and one day, I woke up and he was playing an acoustic guitar.  Then, the next thing I know, he is writing and singing folk music.  I’m thinking, “Wait a minute!” It was an important lesson for me that just because you want something for your children, doesn’t mean that is what they want for themselves.  We never pushed acting on Taylor.  He chose it on his own.  It’s exciting for me mostly because it was his choice.

KASSIE:  He’s a natural.

And speaking of that, Taylor, in the trailer nothing came across forced or pushed.  Obviously, we are all talking you up here, not that you need it.

NATHAN:  I’ll tell you this, Michael.  During the shoot, Taylor insisted on calling me “Nathan”, and I had a problem with it, but he basically told me to get over it because it’s his set, his movie, and while we are shooting, I’m “Nathan”, and he’ll call me dad later.  I’m still struggling with that but he was the boss.

TAYLOR:  It’s hard to walk that line and not make it weird for your crew, you know?

NATHAN:  I get it.

Photo: KarmicReleaseLTD

KASSIE:  It’s weird for me because when he would go, “Robbie is going to do this, and Nathan is going to do that,” I’d go, “Who are Robbie and Nathan?  Aren’t they your mom and dad?”

TAYLOR:  While I was writing the script I called him over, and I said, “Dad, I wrote you a really good role, and I think we are actually going to do this.  I’m giving you a once in a lifetime chance to name your own character.  Do you want to name him after a Greek hero, or one of your siblings?”  He didn’t take his chance.  So, you know what?  It’s “Nathan” now.  It’s easier for everybody.  We don’t have to break the method acting fourth wall.  (Laughs)

Do you think you would work with Nathan and Kassie again? (Laughs)

TAYLOR:  Oh, my God, are you kidding?

NATHAN:  That’s my contract: Kassie has got to be in it.  So, let me say this about Kassie, you had mentioned something about how much she has been working, and I look at Kassie as the James Brown of daytimes soaps.  She is the hardest working woman in daytime television. 

Photo: JPI

She is pretty spectacular. Kassie started on Guiding Light, had a long career on One Life, and then went to General Hospital, then to Days of our Lives.  It’s been amazing that we have been able to see her have a comeback in more ways that one.

KASSIE:  Nathan has jumped from soap to soap as well, and when you’ve done it, you just think it’s over.  It’s not like your regular acting profession jobs when you go out and you know you’re going to audition for twenty-five things and get one role for a short amount of time.  When you go in day in and day out and are creating all of this stuff on a soap opera, and then it ends, you go, “Well, now what am I supposed to do?”  I haven’t been on a set in 6 months, and I feel like I won’t ever work again.  Soaps are just a totally different head trip and so it can be really hard.

Nathan, do you have a favorite Hank Gannon moment from One Life to Live?

NATHAN:  Oh wow.  Man, there were so many of them.  I can tell you the funniest, to me, maybe not so funny to Hillary B. Smith though.  I think it was during a live show. This was during the time when I had a lot of dialogue.  But this particular day, I had one line, and the line was to Hillary and it was, “How are you feeling?” and her response was, “Well, I’m feeling the way I always feel, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah”.  So, during the entire day, I’d see Hillary, and I’d say, “Hey, how you feeling?”  Maybe nineteen times before we started shooting, “Hey, how you feeling?” and she’d had about enough of it.  So, fast forward to “5, 4,3,2,1 action”, and now, I say, “How you doing?”  If you could see the look in her eyes, it is like, “I will kill you.”  So, she says, “You know how I’m doing.  I’m doing what I’m always doing,” so she could get her line out.  So, once again, she saved Nathan’s ass with that.  One stupid line … and I blew it.  I just remember that one because I just know Hilary wanted to strangle me.  She probably still wants to.

And on that note (laughs) I wanted to thank you all so much for this. I hope you find success with this little gem of a film, Taylor.

So what did you think of the comments made by Kassie, Nathan and Taylor on their film?  What did you think of Kassie’s recent performance on DAYS?

General Hospital

GH’s Chloe Lanier Talks On Nelle’s Twisted Plots, Her Co-Stars & That Cliffhanger “Ending”

Recently on ABC’s General Hospital, Chloe Lanier’s Nelle Benson created even more havoc for Carly (Laura Wright), Michael (Chad Duell), Julian (William deVry), Brook Lynn (Briana Lane), and of course, her son, Wiley.

However, is Nelle really gone after her ‘fall,’ which has left her MIA and Carly believing she is responsible for her sister’s ‘death’? But as we know with Nelle, she keeps secretly planning her next move and loves to slowly torture those who she believes have wronged her. There is also the ongoing mystery of just who is Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) daughter, especially since Nelle has the other half of the necklace so near and dear to Nina; leaving viewers pondering if it could mean they are mother and child, or is this all a red-herring?

One thing is for sure, Daytime Emmy winner, Chloe Lanier brings it each and every time she returns to GH. She gives always give the storylines a much needed injection of drama, drama and more drama. No one is quite like Lanier in the soaps either; she can play tough, vulnerable, manipulative, and street smart, like nobody’s business.

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Chloe to get her answers to some of our burning questions for her and her portrayal of naughty Nelle, and how one of her co-stars helped her through a very difficult time in her life.  Here’s what she had to say about it all.

Courtesy/ABC

What did you think of the courtroom antics of Nelle during the custody hearing for Wiley?

CHLOE:  I mean, showing up in a wedding dress was her first mistake. Then antagonizing everyone in the room was probably her second. But she’s so wounded—so broken from her childhood. She doesn’t have the proper emotional tools to combat her self-destructive behavior.

Which showdown or confrontation between Nelle and Michael stands out to you?

CHLOE:  I particularly loved the scenes where Nelle, nine months pregnant, leaves Michael in the rigged car, hoping it would explode. It’s rare that you’re given comedic material on a soap, so that was particularly exciting for me. Also, Chad’s reactions always make me laugh. He’s great.

Photo: ABC

What is it like working with Chad Duell as feuding exes and parents of Wiley? 

CHLOE:  Chad is so easy to work with. He’s been doing the show for so long and is very technically gifted. The writers graced us with some meaty material that we were able to sink our teeth into.

Photo: JPI

What does Nelle think of Willow (Katelyn MacMullen)? She really hates her, huh?

CHLOE: I don’t believe she hates her. She’s envious. Willow is the exact opposite and oftentimes we’re afraid of what we don’t understand. Particularly someone like Nelle, who was raised by a con artist and taught to exploit and manipulate anyone she comes across. So when she sees someone so pure, so innocent, she immediately distrusts her because that behavior is so far outside the lines of how she operates.

What was it like taping the fight scenes between Carly and Nelle, where Nelle “Plummets” to her death?  

CHLOE:  Shout out to Amanda Hall and Heather Bonomo, our amazing stunt doubles for those scenes. They were fantastic.

Courtesy/ABC

When you and Laura Wright get the scripts; where Carly and Nelle are having a huge showdown, are you thrilled about getting the chance to play the emotional beats of those moments? What if it’s a fight scene?

CHLOE:  Those scenes were such a joy, because we got to explore some of the deep roots of Nelle’s trauma, and Carly explicitly said, “I believe you love your son.” That, for me, was important.  Because despite all of her failings, she truly did love her son—in her own warped, off kilter, way.

Photo: Paul Smith

Nelle has really been blackmailing Julian, until he turned the tables on her on the pier?  What has it been like acting opposite Will deVry in those scenes?

CHLOE:  I love Will. He and I actually have the same acting coach, so our prep and how we’re working is from a similar place. What I love about Will is the confidence he has in his stillness. He’s lovely on camera, so connected.

Photo: ABC

Nelle has the other half of the necklace belonging to Nina.  What do you think if it turns out that Nelle is Nina’s daughter?  It is quite possible, tho, that she is not, and it’s all a red herring. How has it been working with Cynthia Watros?

CHLOE:  Cynthia is one of the kindest human beings I’ve ever met, truly. We haven’t known each other for long, but earlier this year, and not many people know this other than my close friends, I was having glaring mental health issues stemming from unresolved trauma. I was going going going for so long that I couldn’t run away from it anymore. I had never dealt with any of it. She saw it and could tell I was silently struggling and reached out. You don’t forget kindness like that. So I’m very grateful for Cynthia—and of course, therapy. I would be flattered if they decided to make Nelle Nina’s daughter.

Photo:ABC

What do you think about how the writers have kept finding ways to have plot points that get all the other characters in trouble and make it look like they did something to Nelle, but she ultimately has her own diabolical plans for them with her actions? She is pretty smart!

CHLOE:  Nelle is the perfect victim, and her love language is sabotage. She’s also a narcissist, so she’s always going to think she’s the smartest person in the room. She’s basically a walking version of Taylor Swift’s song, Look What You Made Me Do. I love that the writers gifted me the opportunity work with almost everyone on the show. Josh (Swickard) and I always had a great time together. And Maurice (Benard)—god he’s hilarious. I would have loved to work with Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan) more though. I love watching her work. She’s going to have an amazing career.

Photo: ABC

Do you think Nelle can ever be redeemed at this point?

CHLOE:  Redemption is a weird one for me, because I don’t believe that people are inherently good or bad. We’re all human. We all have flaws, make mistakes, have regrets, experience shame. We have the ability to grow and we learn from our past. Nelle has done and felt all of those things, to a degree, but continued to do the same thing over and over again while expecting a different result. A character either has to change or they die. So, I’ll say this—if Nelle is alive out there somewhere, I hope she’s going to therapy.

Photo: JPI

What has been the hardest scene for you to play emotionally in the time you have been playing Nelle?

CHLOE:  Probably the scene with the newborn, where Nelle runs into Brad on the side of the road. I had never held a newborn baby before, so I was TERRIFIED. I realized I was the only thing in that moment keeping that baby alive…a very bizarre and life altering feeling, I’ll say.

So, have you enjoyed Chloe’s performances? Do you think Nelle is plotting from afar?  What would you like to see happen in the storylines with  baby Wiley, Nina’s child, and more? Comment below.

Days Of Our Lives

Chandler Massey & Freddie Smith Discuss Their Departure From DAYS, New Beginnings & WilSon’s Journey

This week, Days of our Lives viewers saw the highly-anticipated exit off the canvas, for now,  of Daytime Emmy-winners, Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith as Will and Sonny.

Tuesday marked their final airshow, while the actors found out they were being written-out of the show and had filmed their last six episodes over seven months ago, because at that time and before the pandemic, DAYS was taping far in advance of air.

Now with this leg of their journey complete as the popular Salem duo, Chandler and Freddie are embarking on new chapters of their lives, as Chandler details his move to Atlanta and Freddie in a few weeks to Florida.  But as they discuss in this very special conversation with Michael Fairman on You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, they are not stopping acting either.

During this “farewell for now” interview with Michael, the two actors open up about their final scripts, their last tape day, how both characters helped many individuals come out and come to terms with who they are via watching Will’s coming out story, Will and Sonny’s on-screen relationship and more.

In addition, Freddie discusses what happened when he auditioned for the role of Sonny and what he thinks helped land him the gig; Chandler shares a story about a fan that is very moving, and that his biggest regret was not getting to play the wedding scenes between Will and Sonny (Guy Wilson at that time had stepped into the role of Will).   The duo also reveal their favorite and least favorite storylines they were involved in, and much more.

Watch the full interview below.

So, what do you think about what Freddie and Chandler had to share during our conversation? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
