Love Ali Sweeney and James Scott and I want them to be together in a loving relationship raising their children. James Scott and Ali Sweeney are awesome actors and they are the reason I love Days. I also like Molly and Mark and wish they were together.

I want Sami and Rafe together in a loving relationship without Ej always interfering. I would love for Sydney to be Ej and Nicoles that way it should of always been. Danloe is another great couple. Along with Bo and Hope. These are the couple I would love to see in a loving family relationship SAFE,BOPE and Danloe my 3 favorite couples. Ej and Sami should never be a couple. People he lie and manipulate and do other things should be a couple. There is no love there just people who hurt each other all the time. That isn’t love… Read more »

I have watched a lot of soaps for a lot of years and few couples can compare with Ejami or even come close and they haven’t even officially been a couple yet. Imagine how good it would be if they were. Now that’s what I want to see, the reason I came back to days, and what I have been waiting for – Ejami. There is unlimited sl potential and off the charts chemistry with Sami and EJ.

Favorite Flawed Heroine: Kristian Alfonso (Hope Brady) Sami is not a heroine and never has been and never will be! I love her…but that’s like a joke to actual heroines…lol!!! Nah, Sami doesn’t belong there AT ALL!!! She’s done so much stuff and so much just nasty and horrible stuff, she’s my very ultimate favorite, and that’s like a disgrace and joke to Sami fans to even have her there. LOL!!! Girl, is no heroine at all! She’s definitely a “flawed” baddie way more than heroine! Heroine and Sami doesn’t even go in the same sentence. And that’s one thing… Read more »

I agree and don’t understand why they keep trying to make us believe that Sami is a heroine and Rafe a hero it’s like trying to stick a square peg into a round hole it just doesn’t fit. How do you call someone who won awards for best villian a heroine? LOL!

Guest

I agree Sami is a grey character character (and it is rare on soaps) she is an “anti-heroine” like Jack Deveraux was an “anti-hero” they are baddies with deep down a good heart but certainly not “heroes” like soaps want to also have ..and IMO because of their ulti-dimensioned persona they are much more interesting and fascinating. However if Sami has to mature a bit (i agree with that) give her a career, some girlfriends and above all show us ON SCREEN that she loves her kids, more Sami scenes with her children otherwise we can’t buy her speech about… Read more »

I came back to Days because of Crystal Chappell. Her amazing acting skills brought Days in a whole new light for me. Her with Peter are just yummy and absolutely amazing to watch. I love Peter and Crystal together and I think Bo and Carly are the best could Days has ever had!

Love Love Love Crystal Chappell. I started back watching DOOL because of her return. Seeing her and Peter Reckell together again has definitely ignited my CarBo love. After all those years apart, Bo & Carly still have such amazing chemistry. They are what I’ve always considered a “real” supercouple should be like.They compliment each other so perfectly. BTW I’m glad I’m not the only one that thought Crystal looked like Madonna especially during the whole Princess and the Pea fantasy. That’s when I first noticed it.

Lara

lol IMO Sami Brady is not, was never a heroine. But that’s just me.

I voted for Carly. Now that’s a flawed heroine who does not look down on other people. Human.

My 2nd favorite heroine on that list would be Hope. Her holier than thou attitude ever since she first debuted, however, is what’s keeping her from being 1st on the list, for me.

Liesbeth

-I agree, I don’t see Sami as a heroine at all. She’s a ‘badass” just like EJ; they’re mirror images of each other. The storylines of the spring, summer and fall 2010 have been really difficult to digest, but I haven’t given up hope on these 2. That must mean something, right?! So: EJami all the way!

-Also voted for Carly in the “heroine” department. I rather like her.

I voted EJAMI because even when you think you can’t root for them, they still light up the screen together and make everyone else in the room disappear. Get your **** together writers!

Judi Evans is my flawed fave heroine!! I, have been a fan of Judi`s since she first appeared on (GL), and DOOL quickly became my fave soap.

Of course that means that J&A are my absolute fave couple. They have such great chemistry and history together, I just hope the writers of Days, will realize this soon, and give them the airtime and storyline they sooooooooo deserve. Bringing on some of their kids would be great, too.

How is Hope even an option for “flawed” heroine? All of Salem thinks she’s little miss perfect and can do no wrong, no flaws. Even when she tries to kill her husband three times, it’s okay and not her fault.

Michele S

Hope is to busy going around being selfrightious telling everyone how they should act who they should be with all the while she is mugginh men and trying to killher husband! Thats no flawed heroine to me. At least Carly admits her flaws and trys to understand and see things from their perspective before she sits and judges them.!!

I HAVE WATCHED DAYS OF OUR LIVES FOR A VERY LONG TIME AND I AM VERY
DISSAPOINTED OF HOW THE WRITERS HAVE CHOSEN TO PULL BO AND HOPE
APART AGAIN. THEY ARE THE NUMBER ONE COUPLE IN DAYTIME HISTORY AND I WANT THEM BACK TOGETHER AGAIN AND I HOPE HOW SOON CARLY GETS
SHIPPED FROM DAYS AND NEVER COMES BACK. I WILL NEVER WATCH DAYS
AGAIN IF BO AND HOPE ARE NOT REUNITED.

Galen Gering & Ali Sweeney are the best duo on Days….they are the most romantic couple Days has had in years…beautiful, romantic, passionate and love their humor! They are so good together and their chemistry explodes on the screen….SAFE all the way!

Julia
Guest
Julia

Humor what humor in this pairing ?
It is the problem actually with them, they have no internal conflict, there is nothing “special” there is no humor no witty banter, Sami behaves totally out of character in this pairing. If they wanted a girl for a character like Rafe they could have bring back Carrie Brady but Sami is not the character we were many to love or love to hate with this new couple. And when you are a Sami fan first you can’t root for a cutie cooker couple like that, it is simple to understand.

Judy T
Guest
Judy T

Fortunately, I disagree….we are all entitled to our opinons. Sami & Rafe are opposites and that is why they work …. they complete one another …. with them there is pure chemistry and passion……. at one point Sami & EJ went well with the story, but her character is no longer that person…. she has the same rashness and illogical mindset, but she has endured much and the death of a child scars the soul….she has matured. Rafe understands her and loves her unconditionally. EJ may “love” her, but he had to lie and manipulate her to make her love… Read more »

Hello, Judy T. You’re right, everyone’s entitled to their opinions regarding who belongs with whom, which (non) couple has more chemistry and so on. Personally, I don’t feel Safe- AT ALL- never have and never will. True, they are opposites and yes, Sami loves Rafe (at the moment) but that doesn’t mean they belong together or that they’re even soulmates. Rafe belongs in a long list of men that Sami idolizes and looks up to (eg Austin and Lucas). Due to her unstable childhood with her parents magically dropping in and out of her life, it’s only logical that she… Read more »

I totally agree with your wonderful comments!! I discovered Ejami in a similiar way too, and their wonderful chemistry captured me totally and now I find myself watching this soap daily because of these crazy two passionate compelling characters. I agree Sami does not weaken Ej at all, they are both passionate and temperamental so she can give as good as she gets. That is something I love seeing with these two, and the clever banter they share is so funny and entertaining. I love how Sami can keep pushing Ej until he is ready to blow up in fury… Read more »

For me it was, is and always will be Bo and Carly(Peter Reckell and Crystal Chappell). I stopped watching DAYS when she left and was stunned to hear she’d come back and now, I’m rooting for them to get all they were cheated of. Their bond is so deep , mature and spiritual and they make each other so very happy. They more than deserve a second chance ; a LONG TERM ONE!

I wish you had Ej and Nicole up there, Nicole cares way more for Sydney then Sami ever could. Sami is always dropping off her ‘daughter’ with Grouchy Gramma Caroline. That’s not mothering. Nicole had what it takes to be a Dimera wife. She over looked what Ej did, Sami just wanted to change him. Bring back Ejole and Sydole, and bring back the best evil power couple in daytrime. Nicole should definetly be Sydney’s mom and Ej’s wife, never, ever Sami. My thoughts, save the bashing for else where please. It will make anyone who trashes my thoughts look… Read more »

And Sydney has nothing to do with her, I want Nicole so far out of that as a Nicole fan. I care about her character, and that is just all the wrong place and life for her. She needs to be able to move forward and move on, not always have to constantly go backwards to a life and people that are not meant for her and have nothing to do with her. EJ… Read more »

Liesbeth

Liesbeth

I’m sorry but I have to disagree with you regarding EJole. First of all, EJ was never in love with Nicole. He loved her, yes, but it was on a superficial and a conditional basis: he only married her because he thought she was the mother of his child. He even admitted as much on the plane when they were on the way to Paris. But once her deception came to light he dropped her like a hot potato and has hated her ever since. Moreover, Nicole was literally his rebound: he jumped into a relationship with her after Sami… Read more »

When you mean she calls him out, does shooting him in the head count? Cause the Sami I’ve seen the past 4 years is a former shell of herself, a weakling.

Liesbeth

PS: I do agree with you on one point though: Nicole is a much better mother to Sydney than Sami is. However, Sydney IS Sami’s daughter and despite all her faults, Sami does love her. Sydney belongs with her mother and Nicole isn’t that-there’s no way she popped out a baby while switching Grace & Sydney. Perhaps her child is alive, but it sure as hell isn’t Sydney.

I agree with you a 100% on Nicole. Nicole does have everything to make the perfect Diemra wife. Her and Ej were perfect for one another. I loved it when it was Ej,Nicole with Sydney. Sami is hardly ever with Sydney. In the two years of her life. So I sure hope they are going to make Sydney Ej and Nicoles. I would love for somehow since Nicole was far enough along to have a premi and baker decided to keep the baby and tell her she misscarried. Ejole have what it takes to make it as a true family.… Read more »

Not sure I would give the results to this poll. If you can enter a vote more than once in a day or week it is going to be spammed and looking at your results, I think this is what has happened.
I agree with Maej26….could you not find a loving picture of EJ and Sami? Who ever put those together looks a little biased. Just Sayin.

Now TPTB need to get a clue and give us a sexy, romantic Danloe s/l like when they started in 2008. So many of us were watching to see if Daniel would be the babydaddy and then tuned out after the paternity reveal with Melanie because it = Danloe is doomed, Darly is coming etc. Who wants to watch your favorite couple be destroyed?

Bo & Carly are my favroite Hero & Heroine. Peter & Crystal are the reason I watch days. The way they portray their characters you can feel every emotion they are feeling and they don’t even need to speak to do it. Look at their eyes and their body language – that is true talent — these two set the screen on fire and I wish Days would keep them front and center where they belong!

ttaylor

EJ did not Rape Sami. He refused to help Lucas unless she had sex with him. Also remember Sami drugged Austin and had sex with him. Her husband Lucas actually put a bullet in EJ. Sami blackmailed Lexie to tell her own sister that if she had a baby the baby would be born with birth defects, she caused Phillip to lose his leg. She lied about Lucas causing him to lose custody of Will. Sami is every bit as evil as EJ and she was this way long before he came to town.

She did not have to have sex with EJ, he just wasn’t going to save Lucas if she didn’t Sami would have had to take a chance that she could have found someone else in that horrible blizzard to save Lucas. Sami did one of her very few selfless acts, she loved Lucas so much that she was willing to sleep with a man she did not want to sleep with in order to save Lucas’ life. It was wrong of EJ to not be willing to save Lucas’s life without putting conditions on it, but no more wrong than… Read more »

How is Sami considered a flawed heroine but Nicole isn’t? To me, they are the same character. Also, how come Eric Martsolf and Arianne Zucker aren’t an option for fave duo?? My vote will always go to EJami but it just doesn’t seem right not to have Bricole as an option. You might say Bricole are too new as a couple but wouldn’t that same logic apply to Magic as well?

chelsea
Guest
chelsea

I agree, how could Bricole not be on this list . Bricole should be an option (as well as Arianne Zucker), there are more people that like them together than some of the other couples on this list. Anyway, I like Bricole together but I love Ejami together so my vote goes to them.

My votes went to Crystal Chappell and Carbo!

Carly’s flaw is that she tends to play doctor more than just in the hospital. She carries her work home too. Carly sometimes does the wrong thing at times, but for the right reason! Her heart is in the right place.

Carbo on the other hand is pure magic. The honesty in their relationship is so refreshing to watch.

Carbo
Guest
Carbo

A strong and healthy relationship is founded on trust, honesty, attention and lots of sacrifices including putting aside our “individual good” for a “greater good” (beyond self).

This is Bo and Carly! Like CC said their love is so honest and pure.

Melissa
Guest
Melissa

Honest and pure..For the 5 minutes she was around in the past she left Bo for someone else.. Hope on the other hand has only done that when Bo screwed up with Billie. The writers have really screwed this up they shouldve killed off Hope again if they wanted Carly back in the picture with Bo. That is the only time Bo makes sense with anyone else is when Hope is “not alive”. We are all entitled to our opinion so I am not bashing yours but I will not watch with Bo and Hope not toghether.

Like 748 votes for Chloe are believable? Chloe the Ghoul girl now WAS a flawed heroine but the Chloe we have been seeing for a long while now is more of a vixen. And that is not an insult imo. I love Chloe as I love almost all the DOOL characters and my opinion on that list I believe comes from a fair POV. and I think Carly is more fitting to that title i.e. flawed heroine. And Hope definitely is way more fitting than Chloe. I definitely agree with everyone who has said Sami is not a heroine. lol… Read more »

Polls are definitely false here. I dont know anyone that I speak to that does not want Bo and Hope together. They are teh number super couple of all time. Carly and Bo have no chemistry and not nearly as much history as Bo and Hope…Bo even loved Billie more then he loved Carly we havent even heard him mention her in the last 15 years. I will watch again when Bo and Hope arfe back together.

Days Of Our Lives

Who is DAYS Gwen Really? What is Her Vendetta Against Abigail All About?

We have a new psycho in Salem, and she is played to perfection by Emily O’Brien who has been bringing her brand of quirky evil to the NBC soap opera as Gwen.  Soap fans, of course, remember her as Jana Hawkes on The Young and the Restless from 2006-2011.

Ron Carlivati and his DAYS writing team certainly have some tricks up their sleeve where Gwen is concerned as viewers recently found out she was behind slipping Abigail (Marci Miller) the drug months ago causing her hallucinations.

Photo: JPI

But Gwen is even much darker than we think, when several key clues and moments were revealed on Friday’s episode of DAYS when she went to visit her conspirator in prison, Dr. Rolf (William Utay).

During the exchange, we learn Gwen has been getting the mind-altering drug from one of Dr. Rolf’s concoctions.  She reveals to him that their plan has hit the proverbial snag.  The drug did not dismantle Abigail as she had hoped.  We also learn while she was in the mental institution – Bayview – that is how she tracked Rolf down by researching the drug he had created.

And it appears, Rolf hates Abigail too, citing he always saw her as  thorn in Stefano’s side.  It is then Gwen says he wants another dose of the drug to “melt Abby’s brain!”  Rolf says without anyone else to take the fall for it, he can’t come up with it.

He suggests to her to alter her plan and to instead destroy Abigail’s life piece by piece … and go for the long game instead of the short term – take everything that is near and dear from her including her husband, children, home, everything.

But, what does come to light is that even Dr. Rolf does not know why Gwen wants to destroy Abigail.  That is when Gwen shares she has very good reason to hate Abigail, and he, along with everyone else, will find out why when the time is right.

So, what are your theories?  Who is Gwen?  Is she a character with plastic surgery?  Could she be a sister no one knew Abigail had?  A former mental patient who Abby knew when she was getting help a few years back? And what is her gripe with Abigail all about?  Comment below!

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.

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.

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.

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.
