It’s always great to hear and see what former As the World Turns favorite Van Hansis (Ex-Luke) is up to, and today a new video interview was posted with the talented star, who is nominated for an ISA Award for his leading role in EastSiders, at the Celeb Interview You Tube Channel!

During the interview, Van discusses how he got his start acting, discusses the challenges of being a professional actor, and also fills us in on a new project of his that sounds extremely intriguing called MsGuidance!  Van will not only have a role in the production, but is also producing a project for the first time.  He reveals he hopes to shoot the first three episodes in July.

Van revealed what is at the center of MsGuidance’s story:  “It’s about a woman who attended this performing arts boarding school, and she was an actor, and she went to Julliard.  Everything was supposed to go well for her.  She was pretty, she was talented, she was smart, but she has a huge sense of entitlement, and was unwilling to work her way to the top, because in her own mind she was already there.   She was just waiting for the rest of the world to acknowledge that. So, ten years later after a nervous breakdown on the New York stage, she returns to the performing arts boarding school she went to in her youth to become the interim guidance counselor.  However, listening to the dreams of the young artists makes her realize she is not quite done with the theatre and acting.”

Final Season of ‘EastSiders’ Starring Kit Williamson and Van Hansis Gets Premiere Date on Netflix

The fourth and final season of the much heralded LGBTQ series, EastSiders now has a premiere date of December 1st on Netflix, and fans of the show will see how things will play out for the Silver Lake duo of Cal  and Thom, who have gone through quite a lot in their relationship over the last three seasons.

EastSiders stars series creator, Kit Williamson (Cal) along with As the World Turns favorite, Van Hansis (Thom).  The last six-episodes that comprise season four will tackle questions such as… what does commitment really look like in a long-term relationship? And what unique challenges does a “gay marriage” present?

In story, Cal and Thom are back home in Los Angeles following season three’s cross-country road trip.  The guys are still trying to figure out if they are just best friends with benefits, or more, or less, than that.

Elsewhere, Douglas (Willam Belli) and Quincy (Stephen Guarino) are engaged to be married, but with very different ideas about what a gay wedding should be. Hillary (Brianna Brown) and Ian (John Halbach) are cohabiting peacefully; and Jeremy (Matthew McKelligon) and Derrick (Leith M. Burke) have taken a huge step in their relationship by fostering a child.

Deadline broke the news of the premiere date and the many special guest stars from primetime and more to look forward to this season.
