Soaptown U.S.A. Asks Five Questions Of Your GH
When the strippers of Port Charles were being attacked, Delores’s husband was a
prime suspect. Were you surprised Eddie turned out to be innocent?
Yes! It very much took me by surprise. I had no idea who was going to end up
being guilty. All the evidence was pointing to her husband, and in the end it
turned out to be freaking Ronnie? I was like, “What?!?” I was also glad her
husband turned out to be innocent because maybe that will allow Delores the
opportunity to have a little love floating around. I don’t know what’s going to
happen next with him. I haven’t heard anything about it. As you know, they keep
us in the dark.
Soaptown: We know. They don’t even send you full scripts anymore.
No, they don’t. That’s something that I miss because I always like to know
what’s happening with everybody. But, now that gives us more chatty-time in
the makeup room because you see someone who you know but don’t work with, and
you’re like, “What’s going on with your character?” “Oh? What’s going on with
you?” which is fun. But, I like to know what’s going on [laughs]! I’m a fan on
my own. I watch the show
and I follow everyone’s storyline.
Soaptown: Delores seems to have a good relationship with her new boss,
I am loving that! I’ve had a lot of police women write me letters and tell me
how much they appreciate having a woman on the police force, because they deal
with this in real life — being in a man’s world and having to enforce the law
and all the things that go with it. They are really happy to see that reflected
on a soap opera.
Soaptown: How is working with Finola Hughes [Anna]?
I will say it a million times: it has been such a blessing to be able to work
with Finola. She’s a fantastic actress. She has so much experience. When I
first saw I had scenes with her, I kissed the sky. I knew she’d show me a lot.
I knew I’d learn from her, and the second I started running lines with her, I
started picking things up from her. I
want to be this sponge that just soaks in all this information. I am here to
learn. She is the female power in the police department, and I love it.
Soaptown: Having been a new character when the powers-that-be changed,
were you nervous at all?
It definitely had everyone on their toes. I think that they are keeping me safe
for a little while until they figure out where they want to go. If there is a
higher power, tell them something good [laughs]! I’m just taking every day as
an opportunity and I’m so grateful to them for what they’ve given me to play.
It confirms the power of this character, and I’m all for that.”
