The Thorsten Kaye Interview – The Bold and the Beautiful

Courtesy/CBS

In the soap shocker of 2013, The Bold and the Beautiful pulled off one of the biggest casting replacements in the history of soapdom, when they announced that very popular soap opera leading man, Thorsten Kaye, has been cast as the new Ridge Forrester!  As BOLD fans know, Ridge was last played for 25 years by Ronn Moss, who departed the series on his own accord well over a year ago.  In story, Ridge was last seen in Paris after Brooke and Ridge’s honeymoon went bust!

Kaye, who has been so beloved in the role of rugged business man Zach Slater on All My Children for nearly a decade, surprised everyone when he signed a contract to appear as the new Ridge, while the state of the second season of the online revival of AMC was still in a state of flux.  With things though heading south, it would turn out to be a wise move for Kaye, since All My Children was for all intent and purposes canceled again, leaving him open to new opportunities and a primo role on the most-watched soap opera in the world … B&B!

On-Air On-Soaps chatted with Thorsten to get his outlook on: taking over the role of Ridge, how the character may have changed since he was away, what it was like working with his new leading lady, Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) for the first time, and his own bold move of agreeing to join the cast of the soap opera, without knowing the part he would be playing!  Imagine his surprise, when Kaye found out he was the new Ridge Forrester!  Viewers will first see Thorsten on the Friday, December 13th episode of the CBS soap opera.  Here’s what Thorsten shared with us on his new daytime adventure!

MICHAEL:

How did this come about that you landed on The Bold and the Beautiful?  Did you have a meeting with executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell?  We heard you actually did not know you were signing on to play Ridge!  Is that true?

THORSTEN:

We did not really have a meeting.  I got a call from my agent that there was interest from The Bold and the Beautiful.  I said, “O.K. Let me know what it is.”  My agent said, “Brad Bell would like to call you at home.”  I said, “Alright, well I’m here.”   So he called and said the coolest thing and obviously, you want to start out the right way and he is a smart man.  Brad called and said, “Look, I know the puck is about to drop at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, so I know we don’t have a lot of time.”  So obviously, Brad did his research and found out I was a hockey fan and the big game was about to start, so I was already in! (Laughs)  We talked about travel and what it would mean, and being away from my family, and all that kind of stuff, and how many days and how long.  We never really talked about the character.  I don’t know if it’s because he did not want to say, or I am so conceited that I think I could do anything! (Laughs)  But it just never came up.  So then a couple days later when we got a deal together, and decided we would try this for awhile, I then said, “So Brad, what do you need?  What do you want me to do?”  Brad said, “You’re going to be the replacement for Ridge.”   I said, “That’s great, that mean’s nothing to me.”  But then, he went on to say the name, “Ronn Moss”.  I have met Ronn before, and now I think we may be in a little bit of trouble, I said.  That is not an easy thing to do! (Laughs) They obviously have decided to go completely in a different direction with the character.

MICHAEL:

You are so beloved by the fans of All My Children!  Did you make the decision to join B&B, because you were seeing the writing on the wall that things weren’t working out for a second season of AMC online?

THORSTEN:

Photo Credit: Sue Coflin/Max Photos

I have to tell you, if All My Children had worked out, we wouldn’t be having this conversation.  We were taping AMC a half hour from my house in Connecticut.  It was never about not wanting to be on All My Children, or wanting to be on The Bold and the Beautiful.  There comes a time in your life where it’s not really about you anymore.  Ten years ago, my first daughter was born, and then you try to maintain, and it’s kind of like working out.  I am just trying to maintain, and it’s the same thing with my career at this point.   If I can just get by, and not hurt anybody .and my kids can eat and go to a good school, then I am fine.  But it was the only choice I had, because All My Children wasn’t there. They kept talking about being there and coming back, but they weren’t, and they kept saying they were, but try to tell that to the gas company … they don’t buy it.  They just want their bills paid every month.

MICHAEL:

With all the issues that plagued the first season of AMC’s revival online, did you expect All My Children to be canceled a second heartbreaking time?  (First on television by ABC, and second by the production company Prospect Park, who resurrected the show online.)

THORSTEN:

I am not sure what I expected.  There are so many good people over there.  I am not sure what happened between when we took a break, and when Oprah wanted the next 20 or 40  episodes, and how people were now starting to figure out Hulu, and the computer and how to use it, and a DVD player to get there.  They were just getting to that point when Prospect Park decided not to do the show anymore.  So I am not sure what happened.  It makes me sad; there are a lot of good people out of work.

MICHAEL:

When you started becoming the new Ridge Forrester, did the show give you carte blanche?  Was it an open slate?  Could you inherently make the character different than Ronn Moss’s Ridge?

THORSTEN:

Courtesy/CBS

I think I got hired because of what I have done in the past, and not what I could do in the future.  They were obviously going a different direction, and if they had a choice, Ronn Moss would be doing this role, but that wasn’t an option anymore, as I understand.  So they had to get somebody else.  So as a producer you think, “Well, we could get someone who is really good-looking and sensitive, and can bring what Ronn brought to the role, or do something completely different.”  I think the jury is still out on that.  I have not aired in the U.S. yet.  But, you have got to bring the tools that you have to the stage.  And we don’t really get paid to be chameleons in this industry.  I think people hire you because of what you have done before.  I don’t think they would hire Arnold Schwarzenegger to be the new head of The Smurfs, although that would be funny!  (Laughs)  As an audience, you want to know what you are getting yourself into when you spend $12-$15 bucks at a movie.  You want to make sure Bruce Willis doesn’t get killed in the first five minutes.

MICHAEL:

What happened when you became part of the cast and signed on the dotted line?  Did you chat with your new leading lady, the series superstar, Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke)?  Had you met Katherine, previously?

THORSTEN:

I had never met her before!  She is a classy lady, but she and John McCook (Eric Forrester) actually called me at home before I started working on B&B.  He said, “We are really looking forward to having you, and it’s a real cool group, and it’s going to be a lot of fun.”  And Kelly did the same, but she did say that she doesn’t think just anyone can play the role of Ridge, which I am not sure what that means, but we will see if she changes her mind on that.  It has got to be hard for her.  She has been with the same guy on-screen for 25 years, and they are very good friends off-screen.  Ronn is a good guy and something didn’t work out.  He did not get fired or anything … if he had, this would be a different conversation.  I don’t know if it had happened that way, if I would have taken a part like that, because it never ends well, for anybody.  But he decided it was time to move, and he had this conversation with Kelly, and I don’t know too much about the behind the scenes stuff.  But, we will see.  This is a completely different play now.  I can not recreate what they had, so we have to come up with something new.   Whether it’s better or not, that is not up to me.  I am just going to show up and do what I can.  This is the other thing:  I walk into the studio and one of the producers says: “Kelly is sweet and pretty, but don’t be nervous.  She has chemistry with anybody” And I go, “Oh, I don’t really know how to take that?”  (Laughs)

MICHAEL:

So, for the long time audience of The Bold and the Beautiful, it might take an adjustment period, because here comes in an Irish Ridge Forrester!  Will you use your natural accent?  Or, are you changing that for the character?

THORSTEN:

You can pull that stuff off such as …. changing accents in a movie … but the thing about daytime, and I say this when I get to teach class … you have to bring as much of you to the role as you can, because otherwise, you can’t maintain it.  You can’t pretend to be somebody completely different.  You have to make the role a part of you.  In a movie, there is a beginning, middle, and an end.  You can create something.  Here in soaps, because the writing is so fast, I kind of have to bring me to it.  All the parts I play are very similar.  I am not going to lie to you.

MICHAEL:

Did you watch any old clips on You Tube of Ridge and Brooke’s star-crossed romance to prepare for taking over the part?  Or, more notably, did you check out Ronn Moss in the role?

THORSTEN:

I don’t see the upside of that.  You can see how much better looking this dude is, and then you got to go to work.  That is like playing for the Red Wings and saying, “I am going to watch Gordie Howe videos.”  It’s a different thing.  It’s a different game.  It’s something that somebody wanted.  At the end of the day, this is the entertainment business.  If we can find a way as a group, and it’s not up to me, to keep entertaining people, then we are in good shape.  If it’s not entertaining, that it doesn’t matter who is playing the role.

MICHAEL:

When Ridge comes back into the picture, will he have a chip on his shoulder?  After all on-screen in story, things did not end well for Ridge and Brooke after they got married and went on their honeymoon! 

THORSTEN:

Photo Credit: Gilles Toucas

I am playing it that he has chip on his shoulder, because I am playing it! (Laughs) I don’t know if a chip on his shoulder is the right thing.  There has been some stuff in his past that I was not part of, that I am aware of, that wasn’t dealt with.  Like everything, there is Ridge’s story, Brooke’s story, and then there is the truth. And whether we are going to get to that or not, I don’t know.  But, I think both those people come into it with unresolved issues, and that is always fun for soaps. Unfortunately during that time, Katherine was busy with other members of the cast!  It is heightened reality, but I got to tell you, the set up is good.

MICHAEL:

Fans are looking forward to seeing two very strong leading men go head to head with each other!  Namely, you and Don Diamont (Bill)!  Have you taped scenes already with him?

THORSTEN:

Yes, I have. It’s fun working with him.  I think the dynamic he has with Ronn was different, and that is all I am going to say about that.

MICHAEL:

B&B has also recast the role of Ridge’s son RJ!  Have you had scenes with him and we understand he will be somewhat older, but not 30! (Laughs)

THORSTEN:

Courtesy/CBS

I have had scenes with him.  RJ is not one of those kids who are going to return after he is 23-years-old after going up to get the skis, or whatever the story is.  He is still quite young, and again, it’s a sense of family and what it means.  Can you swallow your pride and get past the problems that you created, that she created, and can you get back that family unit?  Or, is it better to start all over somewhere else … and is it better for the kid?

MICHAEL:

Soap viewers have loved you for all of your tough romantic leading guy characters. That being said, could B&B be planning on making you, as Ridge, an out and out villain to stir the pot?

THORSTEN:

Well, there is always fine line.  What’s a villain?  A villain is somebody who does bad things and doesn’t really think they are bad.  We have all done that.  I am not saying Ridge is going to be a villain, but I do think he will stand by what he feels is right, and sadly, in those situations, someone always get hurts.

MICHAEL:

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

You are married to two-time Daytime Emmy Award winning actress Susan Haskell (Ex-Marty, OLTL) and the two of you share children together.  What was Susan’s reaction to the fact that you would be leaving Connecticut and flying to Los Angles to tape B&B a lot?

THORSTEN:

Well, it wasn’t, “Oh, by the way, I am leaving!”  Susan was part of this discussion from the very first phone call, and the kids get it.  But luckily and sadly, the kids miss me when I am not here, and I miss them, and we have to figure all this out.   I don’t know what’s going to happen in three or four years!  And once they start airing this stuff, it may not be my decision, anyway.  If it doesn’t work, it doesn’t work, and I get it.

MICHAEL:

You know it’s a different time we are living in.  Now, soap operas are giving actors contracts and jobs, even if they don’t live in Los Angeles or New York, and flying them in as part of their deals.  Recent examples are: Steve Burton (Dylan) who lives in Nashville, but flies in to tape episodes of Y&R, and many of the actors who lived in Los Angeles. who were flown to Connecticut to tape the reboots of AMC and One Life to Live.  

THORSTEN:

It is an interesting time.  You have to chase work a little more.  It’s also that people look for different things.  It’s funny to me when people say it’s the economy, and we can’t pay you what your supposed to be paid, but when I take my kids to the movie theatre, it’s still $65, and so that hasn’t change.  If you can’t pay actors to do the job they have done in the past, and the salary they have worked toward and that you should be earning now, if you can’t pay them that, then you can’t charge the same for the product.

MICHAEL:

Courtesy/ABC

Did either of your former All My Children leading ladies, Alicia Minshew (Ex-Kendall) or Paula Garces (Ex-Lea), say anything to you once they heard you took a role on B&B?

THORSTEN:

I think my leading ladies want to run away from me as fast as they can! (Laughs)  Katherine Kelly Lang has actually moved and changed her telephone number! (Laughs) Alicia is married to one of my best friends, and it’s a business, and this was never meant to hurt anybody, and Alicia knows that, and so does everybody at All My Children.  It’s about feeding my family first.  Listen, I wish we were still doing All My Children, and I could just drive to work and be home by 5PM and put these kids to bed, but as you said, it’s a different world we live in.

MICHAEL:

When you look at your body of work as Ian on Port Charles, Patrick on One Life to Live, and Zach on All My Children, are there any storylines or moments, where you were proud of your performance?  Actors are very often critical of their work, so this may be a hard question to answer.

THORSTEN:

Courtesy/ABC

You know what?  I am critical and for good reason.  I think all actors should be. Otherwise, you are not going to be any better.  You just read the good reviews and throw the other ones out.  I think every show I have been on had moments where people did great work, and if you were lucky, you would be a part of that.  Was there one storyline where I thought I did a great job?   I am looking at my shelf and I don’t see any Emmys, so my answer would be “No!”  If you can’t find that thirty second scene that is going to make you smile and connect with somebody, then don’t be an actor, because it’s not all going to be Hamlet!  And I have to tell you, I have done that show, and it wasn’t all that great, either!  I can’t blame the writer on that one!  (Laughs)

MICHAEL:

You also have an on-screen half brother now … in the form of Winsor Harmon (Thorne Forrester)!  Have you had the chance to work with Winsor?  He is a lot of fun!

THORSTEN:

Yes!  Winsor has been to my house before.   Now, let’s talk about that accent!  He must be my brother from Southern Italy! (Laughs)  They are all great people over at B&B.  I can’t say a bad thing … I mean, not yet.  But ask me in a couple of months, and I might have something to say on that!

MICHAEL:

Finally, any nerves about how the audience will receive you when you debut as the new Ridge Forrester?

THORSTEN:

Courtesy/CBS

I didn’t until just now! (Laughs)  Television is different than live theatre.  In the theatre … you can’t help but have nerves about it, because you can feel the energy of the audience.  I am not going to watch my debut on The Bold and the Beautiful, because I can find a thousand reasons why I don’t like it.  I have moved on from that already.  I am working on new material for the coming weeks.  This is a very different way to approach the part.  I think the role of Ridge is very important to the show.  It’s a small cast and playing him differently may not work in the makeup of it, but I can’t pretend to be Ronn Moss, I am not.  I can’t do what he can do.  I can’t bring what he brought to it.  That would be like him playing Zach Slater … it’s very different.  And that does not mean, it’s better or worse, it’s just different.

OMG!!! i have been a huge fan of thorsten since he first started on oltl – he is such an extraordinary actor & so passionate about his work – i have no doubt he will be a big hit on b&b and i will be right in front of my tv cheering him on….
every interview of his that i have read he comes across as such a real down to earth kind of guy – he seems to tell it like it is, in other words he keeps it real……..

thank you michael for another excellent interview!

I am looking forward to Thorsten as the New Ridge. I was a Ronn Moss fan for years but he chose to leave B&B. So they had to recast Ridge. Whoever has a problem with it too bad. The show must go on. Ronn moved on. So why can’t B&B too? I heard some are upset with this Recast. Well many were very upset when Ronn chose to leave B&B & leave his fans high & dry too. What did he expect us to be all happy because he left after watching for 25 years & then no more Ridge or Bridge. I am looking forward to seeing Bridge again I hope they reunite.

There are so many reasons to love TK. He has always been true-blue loyal about AMC and I’m sure if there had been an AMC to return to, he’d be there. I remember Eric Nelsen (AJ) and Alicia tweeting support and good wishes when his B&B hiring was announced so the fact that she understands why he’s making this move doesn’t surprise me at all. As he says, they’re close in real life, which has always made the Zach and Kendall pairing extra special, IMO. As the new Ridge, I wish him well on B&B. He’s such a good actor that I’m sure he’ll be fine. But it sounds like being away from his family may be as big an issue for him as whether or not the B&B fans accept him. I hope everything works out for him and his family and that the role challenges him and allows him to grow as an actor by playing something different and working with people he’d never worked with before. Thanks for the interview, Michael.

Oh TK you naughty boy you just confirmed what CBS has been denying for months that the golden boy Steve Burton got a fly in deal that ABC would not do for him! Priceless! Love that man he always speaks his mind. KKL & DD are going to be forced to step up their game or they will look even more foolish then they do now we have an actor on the set now.

I don’t know why CBS wouldn’t confirm this. I’m a GH fan and his “fly in” deal and 2-3 day shooting schedule was confirmed months ago. Didn’t Burton confirm it in an interview before he started on Y&R?

What a huge improvement. I never understood Brooke and Taylor fighting over an over sized Ken doll. I will tune in just to see Thorston who was also excellent as Patrick on OLTL.

I am really happy and excited for Thorston Kaye in this new chapter of his career and a new chapter of B & B. I’ve been watching B & B since it began and feel the pang of this change, but at the same time am open to it. I watched him today as I caught up on episodes and he is wonderful. Ridge WILL be different, and that’s exciting. Thorston is engaging to watch, I love his accent and I think he will bring a new facet to Ridge Forrestor we’ve not seen before, and that is compelling. I wish everyone who has left, and those who are staying ALL of the best. I’m looking forward to seeing what Mr. Kaye will bring to the show.

Love the “new and improved” Ridge. Enjoyed seeing Dollar Bill and Ridge “engaging” in their battle for the love of the Logan gals. How this quad ends up will be interesting……….would like to see it as “surprising” to all four. As much as Brooke wants Katie to go back to Bill, Bill wants Brooke, Katie is betrayed by the two most important people in her live, Ridge comes back to reunite his family………………may “slowly” find that the Logan he yearns for is “little sis”. Hope the writer’s can draft this love story so carefully that we see these two falling for each other without knowing it……………..would that not be a surprise. Tried of the Liam/Hope/Wyatt story……………………….need to MOVE on. Get Eric a galfriend, put Pam with the security guard, get Donna a boyfriend, …………………..maybe Thorne, I really miss Sally and her group………………..Mr. Kaye has made this show interesting to watch. He is a better Ridge…………one that be the “prince charming” that was lacking in the old Ridge.

If Bold and Beautiful try and make the character Ridge Forrester out to be a Sodom and Gomorite” I guarantee “They will be off the Air so fast”, it will make their head swim!!!” Many of your fans are Christians!!!

HE IS MORE NATURALLY BETTER LOOKING. R.M. WAS TOO PUT ON. HAVE YOU
LOOKED INTO T. K.’s EYES WHEN HE TALKS? HE IS SO CONCERNED AND TRUE
WITH HIS FEELINGS. FORGET R.M. HE’S NOT THERE ANYMORE. GIVE T.K. A

I totally agree! TK is beautiful in all ways – physically and sensually. I love his voice it is so alluring. I hated Moss and the way he played Ridge. I also don’t like it that Moss’ wife has been talking trash about Thorsten. She sounds like a bitter B****.

I agree with you both Mary & Traci! TK is sexy and a better Ridge!

Love Thorsten Kaye as Ridge on B&B. He is a softer version, great to look at and very convincing with his scenes with Katie. Hope they end up together.

I don’t want Katie hurt anymore. I also want Katie to become a serious business woman and never let Bill have that company back. I want her to become the business woman of the year and take it to the max. HT is an excellent actress and they need to write for her to showcase more of ther talents. The girl has what it takes. Now all she needs is the writers to bring it on.

I want to say I love the New Ridge. He has soul, such a love in his eyes and you can feel it in his heart! I would truly like to see him and Katie come together and remain one of the greatest loves on BB. He is very good looking and manly. Katie has come to herself, let her finally have the man in her life, send someone else too Brooke, it’s time for her to become someone else besides a Forrester! As for Eric I believe he is the most fascinating man on TV, find a beautiful, mature woman that will remain for life. Come on let somebody remain happy, lol

Traci

I have watched B&B since day one and I must say that I have always hated the character of Ridge Forrester. I hated the way Ronn Moss played him – so egotistical, arrogant, just plain mean. Not too mention that he always forgave Brooke on all of her scandals, all Brooke had to do was look at him with those big eyes, shed a fake tear, then seduce him. I absolutely love Thorsten! This is the first time I have even heard of him as I only watch Y&R and B&B, never any other soap. I love the new Ridge and Thorsten is SO GORGEOUS. If TK reads this I want him to know I love the way he plays Ridge. Ridge is so sweet now – nothing like the way Moss played him.

Linda

I love Thorsten Kaye in the role of Ridge. There is just one word to describe him and that is SEXY! He has beautiful eyes and very expressive. I also love him with Katie (Heather Tom). They have so much chemistry together. I don’t see the same chemistry with Brooke (KKL). Please writers don’t mess it up. Keep him with Katie. Don’t put Ridge back with Brooke. We’ve already seen that done for the past 25 years. Time to make Katie and Ridge the new couple on B&B.

Cindy
Cindy

I so agree with Linda!… I hope the writers please keep Katie and this Ridge together.. The chemistry is there! I think also the writers did a good job by letting us know that Ridge had been away and had a life changing revelation about himself so TK will own that role of the new Ridge ……

I was so upset when Ron Moss left. But I wanted to give Thorsten K a fair chance. Turns out he’s better than Moss could ever be. So sexy and that voice. Oh that voice. I’ve been watching B&B since the beginning and I know Thorsten K will only make the show 100% better. How could it not.

Like the Ron Moss look better. He had the look of a fashion house ceo. Thorsten does NOT look the part. Too scruffy looking. Need to have a cleaner look. It’s a LA Fashion House with beautiful looking people. He is not a good looking guy for this show. It’s only my opinion but he is not the type of man I would want to see on tv every day. Sorry.

Interviews

Knots Landing’s Joan Van Ark, Michele Lee & Donna Mills Share Backstage Memories, Watch Back Classic Scenes & Remember the Cul-De-Sac On Its 40th Anniversary

The primetime soap that lasted longer than them all was not Dallas, Dynasty or Falcon Crest, but Knots Landing! The series about the lives of the people of the cul-de-sac at Seaview Circle in Southern California ran on CBS from December 27th, 1979 till May 13, 1993.

Throughout Knots’ run, the show centered on the lives of female characters; most notably Joan Van Ark as Valene Ewing, Michele Lee as Karen Fairgate MacKenzie and Donna Mills as Abby Cunningham Ewing (yes, there were several other married names too!).

What made Knots Landing so special was its more ‘grounded in reality’ storylines (than over-the-top on the other primetime soaps), while also delivering the soapy goodness and those riveting cliffhangers and those gut-wrenching performances that had millions of fans tuning in every week on Thursday nights.

Who can ever forger the 3-year story arc of Val having her twins taken from her at birth, or Sid’s death that left Karen a grieving widow, or the moment we saw Abby’s other side as mother lioness with her children, trying to deal with her daughter Olivia’s drug problem.  These were only some of the unforgettable moments and portrayals by these three women.

To commemorate Knots Landing’s 40th anniversary. Michael Fairman sat down with Joan, Michele and Donna at Donna Mills’ home for this very special deep-dive conversation for his You Tube channel, The Michael Fairman Channel.

Sean Kanan, Tristan Rogers & Timothy Woodward Jr. Talk On The Making Of New Digital Drama ‘Studio City’ & Respect For Soaps

Just as we closed out 2019, the world of digital dramas saw the debut of a riveting new show, Studio City.  The series initial season can be binged watched in its entirety on Amazon Prime, which follows the life of Hollywood actor Sam Stevens and the cast of “Hearts on Fire“, America’s number two daytime drama, as they navigate the chaotic world of soap operas and their own messy personal lives.

Studio City was co-created, executive produced, and stars longtime daytime favorite, Sean Kanan (Ex-AJ, General Hospital, Ex-Deacon, B&B).  In it, Kanan plays Sam, who plays a doctor on the soap-within-the show, and whose life off the set provides the back-drop for much of the drama and heart and soul of the series.

Kanan has surrounded himself with quite the acting company which includes: Carolyn Hennesy (Diane, GH), Sarah Brown (Ex-Carly and Claudia, GH, Julia, ATWT, Madison, DAYS and Agnes, B&B), Patrika Darbo (Ex-Nancy, DAYS and Ex-Shirley, B&B), Scott Turner Schofield (Ex-Nick, B&B) and the one and only, Tristan Rogers (Robert, GH, Colin, Y&R).   In addition, feature film director, Timothy Woodward Jr. (who turns out to be a soap fan and appreciates the genre), is the man behind the camera directing the story and the cast through the ups, downs, laughs and tears of the story in Studio City,

Michael Fairman TV chatted with Kanan, Tristan Rogers, and Woodward to find out: how Studio City all came together, what their hopes are for it in the future, and about the tears (those who have watched the series have shed in episode 6) and pivotal moments portrayed by Sean, Tristan, and Patrika Darbo that have helped create a buzz for the show.  Check out what these gents had to share below.

Sean, in the stellar cast are many daytime notables including: Carolyn Hennesy, Sarah Brown, Patrika Darbo and Tristan. Did you reach out to them individually… and tell them what you had cooking with Studio City?

SEAN:  (Laughs) Did I reach out to them?  I had to beg them.  When you do a project like this, nobody is getting rich yet.  This really was a favor and a labor of love.  Patrika and I have really worked on more projects together than I can count.  Carolyn was on my radio show.  There was nobody else I wanted for their parts then Carolyn, Patrika, and Sarah. The idea of Tristan came a little bit later because I had written the character, but the character was actually very different.  He was actually a homeless guy.  He was a guy who had been a doctor and had been strung out on Vicodin, and had had a mishap in the operating room, and lost his license and then became homeless, but he was sort of this homeless sage poet who was giving Sam these bits of wisdom.  Ultimately, through meetings and compromises, it evolved into what it is now, and then, once that happened, I was like, “There’s no reason Tristan can’t play that,” and everyone signed on after a lot of coaxing, but they all did it for me.  I’m so grateful for that because it wouldn’t be what it is without those wonderful people in the series.

TRISTAN:  What happened was he said, “Will you do this part?”  I said, “Yeah.”  Sight unseen.  I figured Sean is an actor with relatively good taste (laughs) so he’s not going to give me a piece of s**t to do.  (Laughs)   Then, he sends me over some copy, and the copy is really good.   So, we set the week up, and that week turned out to be three weeks from hell for me because of my schedule!  I was doing General Hospital.  Then, I had Young and the Restless come in on top of that.  Then, I was doing The Bay, and somewhere in all of this I was doing Studio City.  So, I’m trying to figure out how I am going to do all of this.  In the meantime, Studio City said, “No, we’ve got to do it at a particular time because of the location.  We can’t get it at any other time, but these times…”  I said, “Okay,” and I’m thinking to myself, “God, how the hell am I going to make this work,” because I wanted to do everything, and I didn’t want to have to cancel anything.  I wanted to do it all because all of the projects were so good.  The Young and the Restless project was just an absolute joy to do working with Jess Walton (Jill).  We got Y&R all done in one day   So, I liked that.  After I finished that, was the day I started Studio City, and we were shooting  in a high rise where Sean and his wife Michele were living at the time.  They shot in a vacant apartment next door.  Right away, I was totally impressed with what was going on.  The level of production was really high.  I got the dialogue as I walked on set, and I had to sit down quietly because it was about a page and a half monologue, and I had to think, “Okay, what am I going to do with this guy?  How am I going to play him?”  Timothy Woodward is just fantastic.  He came along, we had a chat together, and he sort of said, “What are you going to do?” and I told him how I was going to play it, and he said, “Okay, go.”  We got it all in one take.  Bang.  I love that.

SEAN:  There was a lot to do obviously, but we shot Studio City over five days.  We literally shot this at almost a soap opera pace.   I don’t think too many other actors; except for daytime actors could have pulled this off.  So, we were really blessed to have a bunch of pros.

TIMOTHY: Every one of them were extremely talented in their roles.  Patrika blew my socks off.  Tristan did what he did, I mean, he’s amazing.  Sarah was great.  Carolyn Hennesy was great   I do a lot of feature stuff, and you know, we are shooting only 4 or 5 pages a day.  Sometimes 6.  So, it’s not often that I am handing someone a 7-page scene and saying, “Hey, go,” especially the day before, and they’re nailing it every single time and being able to deliver every single time, and hitting their marks, which makes the editing process so good.  They’re able to do it, especially when you keep the writing grounded on the side of it that’s about behind the show, but it still has dramatic moments.  You’re giving the actors a lot to chew on, but they all performed the material so well.

Tristan, in story, you play Sean and Sarah Brown’s step-father. There is a major scene in episode 6 between Patrika and Sean where Sam learns about his biological father, and then there is a scene with you and Sean in the aftermath of that.

TRISTAN:  Yes, they are my adopted kids.   Sam is going through a low part in his life, and my character has to kind of sit him down and go, “Listen, kid.  You’re a good guy.  Don’t ever be told that you’re not a good guy.  You’re my son, and I love you, and there’s not a day that goes past that I don’t love you.”  When you’re on the set at the time, it was an extremely emotional scene.  Very, very emotional, and the fact that we got it right the first time, made the intensity better.  If I had had to go back and do that again, it would have been slightly different. That’s the way I work.”

Photo: Studio City

Had you worked with Sarah Brown before; given you both have worked on General Hospital in your careers?

TRISTAN:  Never.  That was a great thing.  I had two scenes with her, and I loved them both, and I thought she was terrific,  What Sean and Timothy have done is  put together a really interesting bunch of people to totally dig and are part of the daytime scene, who are totally familiar with it, and know what it is all about, and make it different.  The only other show I can compare this to is GH: Night Shift.   We were never allowed to develop it, but that was where we were at.  I think we are making the same kind of broad steps here that we were doing back then.  Hopefully, we are given more of a chance to develop the concept of it. 

What can you say about working with Timothy? He obviously loves the soaps too!

TRISTAN:  He’s a good guy.  I mean, they couldn’t have gotten a better person to do the directing and put that side of it together.  He was the perfect choice: having an understanding of the background of daytime and basically liking it for what it is.  He was ideal!

Photo: Studio City

Timothy, you were a fan of The Bold and the Beautiful, correct? How did you come into Sean’s orbit?

TIMOTHY:  Yes … when Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) was with dad, Eric (John McCook), or something right before that. (Laughs)  That’s how long ago that was.  I started telling Sean all that stuff, and he sent this cookbook to my mom, and then, he called me.  We stayed in contact and started talking about a few things, and then he contacted me about being in the book he was doing, Success Factor X, and he wanted me to be in the book, so I said okay.  So, we just stayed in contact, and then, I called him about another project. Later, Sean said he had an idea for a show and he’s been working on it for a while, and said, “Here’s the idea.  What do you think?”  I said, “I think it’s something that I could be interested in,” (because I’d always watched soaps back in the day, and it’s something that my mom is a huge fan of) and you know, I could get down with doing it.”  So, we kind of met, shook hands, and said, “Let’s make it happen.”

Did you tell your mom you were working with Sean Kanan?

TIMOTHY:  I did!  She loved it.  Sean actually sent her a video to her phone wishing her a merry Christmas last year.

SEAN:  This guy is a feature-film director. Tim was like, “I think that would be a really interesting challenge.  I’d like to do a digital series,” and then it comes to pass that this sort of tough-guy film director from North Carolina, is a total closet soap freak! (Laughs)

Timothy, in Studio City, when Patrika Darbo has this very emotional monologue about what happened to her and about Sam’s father.  Sean also delivered a powerful performance in the scenes, just through his reactions to her heartbreaking story. I just thought the way he played it was so moving.  You obviously did a great job directing that scene.

TIMOTHY: I said, “Sean, I’m seeing behind the camera.  I’m telling you man, you’re telling so much with your eyes.  You don’t have to say anything.  Don’t tell her it’s okay during the scene,” because his initial reaction was, “It’s my mom.  I want to tell her it’s alright.”  I was like, “No.  Don’t.  I don’t want you to do anything.  You need to absorb this; you need to be in that moment of where you just don’t even know what to say.   You feel for her, but you also have this self-inflicted pain yourself, and you just need to listen.  Just listen to her.  Zone out of everything else and listen to her.”  That’s what he did, and he did it really well.

SEAN:  I remember that Patrika was incredibly generous because once we got her take; she was willing to go through all of that pain again so that my reactions would be as informed as it was.  Honestly I would like to tell you that it was me reaching into my big bag of actor tricks, but all I had to do was shut up and listen.  How can you not be moved by hearing that?  So, I just sort of shut up, didn’t have to hit my mark because I was sitting, and listened, and she did all of the driving on that, and she was just terrific and Timothy captured it beautifully.

Sean, when you envisioned the part of Sam for yourself; were you pleased about how it came across on screen?

SEAN:  Listen, the character is very close to who I am.  This guy is sort of a heightened version of me, but I am very much playing myself in this.  I’m playing myself in some situations that I have never had to deal with.  I was like, “If this is going to succeed or fail, it’s going to happen with me being my most authentic self, and it’s not someone else’s idea of who I am.  I’m going to show you who I am in this.”

Photo: Studio City

Trans actor, Scott Turner Schofield also appears in Studio City.  In part of his story, you are tackling a timely social issue of the plight of African-American trans individuals who are being murdered.  How did you come to the decision to include this arc in the series?

SEAN:  I felt it was important that we told a story that was LGBTQ and trans-centric.  I wanted Scott to be a character on the show that everybody knew was trans.  I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself, but maybe the character Scott plays is going to have a conflict with production and say, “Listen, I’ve got to be a trans character on the show because I need to sort of be a beacon to all of those people out there.  I’m living that life off-camera. ”  When you see him in his group and everything, and I think he is going to kind of stand up for himself, and that’s going to probably alter his story.  I thought it was important to be like, “My character knows he’s trans.  He’s my buddy who happens to be trans,” you know what I mean…. rather than it being this huge big thing.”

Was the goal to get Studio City released right at the end of 2019 to quality for Daytime Emmy consideration in the Digital Drama categories? 

TIMOTHY:  It was definitely something we think could get more eyeballs on the show, more attention to it if you will, in order to get it to the next level.  So, I think that’s important. Do this and get it even bigger … make more episodes and make them longer.  Sean keeps saying this series, is a love letter to soaps, and that’s what he told me he wanted to do.  You know what Sean is talking about.  There is somewhat of a disrespect level in our industry of, “Well, he’s on a soap,” and these people are so talented.  I mean, some of these daytime soaps have better ratings than a lot of the primetime shows.  You just read mainstream media or something about soaps, and you may think, “What?  There’s nobody watching it,” and then, you start looking at ratings and two and a half million viewers during an episode?  This is every day.  That’s a fan base.  There are dedicated people watching it.

SEAN:  It always bothers me when I see that; treating soaps like that because we work really hard, and there’s a lot of talented people involved with it.  It doesn’t always need to always be that whenever you see soap operas represented in “main series” projects, that they’re kind of the butt of a joke.  I was like, “That’s not going to happen because that’s not what they’re about.”

Photo: Studio City

Sean, you make things happen for yourself doing various projects whether it be: stand-up comedy, acting, books, etc and are one of the hardest working guys I know. Why do you think you have continually come back around, and in front of the daytime soap community all of these years?

SEAN:  I envy guys who have been on daytime consistently for 10, 15, 20 years, and there are times that I wish I were there and doing that, but I don’t necessarily know that if I were that guy that I would have had the wherewithal to write the books I have written.  I think I may have gotten comfortable, and you know, God bless.  I am in no way disparaging that because there is a lot to be said for that longevity on a series. I feel like on daytime I have always been kind of a hired guy.  I get brought in, I get let go, I get brought in, I get let go.  I never sort of maintained a sense of terra firma.  I always felt that it was probably going to be temporary, and I’d better figure out what else I’m going to do, which has given me opportunities that I have created to do projects that I am really passionate about like this one.

‘The Bachelor’ Peter Weber Opens Up About Hannah Brown, Hannah Ann & Being Emotional In Front Of The Camera

While viewers watched how the emotional conversation that they “had to have” came to its conclusion (or did it, even?) on Monday’s episode of The Bachelor between Peter Weber and the women he fell for in her season of The Bachelorette, Hannah Brown, several other new “storylines”kicked off” such as”champagne-gate” between contestants Kelsey and Hannah Ann, and then the social media ‘Bachelor Natio’n frenzy over a shot included in the episode featuring a bottle of maple syrup popping up out of nowhere (later explained to be a supply that contestant Mykenna was going to use when having some alone time with Peter, presumably).

But while it looks for now that Peter is going to try to move past his lingering feelings for Hannah B. and be all-in to find love with one of the women in the running on his season of “The Bachelor”, Michael Fairman TV along with several members of the media spoke with Weber at the ABC Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour on some subjects we wall wanted to know his answers to.  Check them out below.

When asked if he watched back the premiere episode and what went down with his chat with Hannah Brown, Peter told us: “The Hannah stuff wasn’t easy for me to watch.  It wasn’t easy as a viewer.  You go on hiatus, like a lull, and then you relive it as it airs back.  So, that wasn’t easy, but you’ll see what that all means. I think you kind of see that there were true, genuine feelings that were still there in that episode, and it left me really confused.”

As to if he was prepared to be seen as so open and vulnerable in the process of finding love while having cameras on him all the time, Weber expressed: Yeah, that was one thing I took from Hannah.  I remember the beginning of her season, that first night, that first speech, it was all about being vulnerable, raw, and open with us, and I made that a big theme of mine, and I wanted to set that theme early on with the women.  You’re going to see me be that the entire time.”

Knowing the intensity and spotlight it puts on him, Weber says he was all-in for being The Bachelor this season: “I was so excited.  What an amazing opportunity, and I knew it worked.  So, why would I say no.”

There is obviously a major stunning moment that the series is pushing that happens in the finale that appears to potentially change the course of Peter’s quest for love, or confuses it. Weber would only tease that:  “I tell everyone that is was the most beautiful experience (being on  “The Bachelor”) but the hardest of my entire life.  That last week, was the hardest week of my entire life.  It literally doesn’t stop until the last second … just a lot of unexpected stuff that I couldn’t predict, but I took it, and I feel like I’m stronger coming out at the end, but it was hard.  If I told you, then I’d give it away! I didn’t expect what happened to happen.”

Weber also weighed-in on if he feels his love life coming out of the series is set, sharing: “You guys will definitely enjoy this journey and feel it.  I can’t comment on that right now.”

Pilot Peter revealed that he has also apparently gone back to work at Delta: “I went back to work like a week after I finished filming (The Bachelor). I never actually took a leave.  It’s really nice being a pilot because the schedule is really flexible.  So, I just ended up dropping my trips and having friends pick up trips.  So, I’m really lucky that it all worked out.”

Over the course of filming, Peter was involved in a freak accident that will be shown that leaves him with a scar on his forehead: “I think it’s badass.  (Laughs) Listen, it was a freak accident, and it is what it is.  I wasn’t going to let it keep me down or bum me out too much.  I was in the middle of this whole journey, and you know, it’ll fade.  I didn’t lose my eye, so that’s like the biggest thing.”

Photo: ABC

Many are comparing Peter’s like of two women named Hannah! Both from the south and both had competed in beauty pageants, Hannah Brown and this season’s Hannah Ann, to which Weber played up the irony: ” I know!  Lots of Hannahs!   A lot of girls from Alabama.  That was a big theme, too.  I feel like I don’t have type now, but maybe I do.”

Do you think Hannah Ann is a frontrunner for that final rose of Peter’s “champagne-gate” and all?  What do you think will happen come the ending of the season as teased by Weber and what you have seen thus far in the first couple of episodes of the new season of the reality-competition series?
