Soaptown U.S.A. Asks Five Questions Of Your GH
Steve Burton [Jason] shared with us that you two are officially neighbors in
We are! We live about five minutes apart, and our dark
weeks on the show are the same, so we’ll be there together each of
those times. My kids already live there. Missy [Reeves, Jennifer, DAYS]
and I will be doing the same thing as Steve. We’ll all be working and
then flying back, so it will be cool when we’re all home and we can
pick up the phone and go get something to eat. You couldn’t ask for
much more than that.
Soaptown: Your character's storyline really heated up when Steve found
himself caught between his loopy mother, Heather, and his concerned
Reeves: They’re awesome! The dynamic between those two — and being
stuck in the middle of that — is just so much fun — but exhausting at
the same time [laughs].
Soaptown: Scott, you must be tired of Steve being called the dimmest
man in all of daytime by fans.
Reeves: Oh, my gosh [laughs]! As I’m sitting there in the midst of all
this, I’m like, “You idiot! What are you thinking?” “But it’s mommy.”
He’s like Norman Bates [laughs]. But, the women are both so great, it’s
easy to love both of them in the way he needs to love both of them —
and defend both of them — at the same time. Lisa [LoCicero, Olivia] is
so good and so comfortable to work with and she’s so specific. With
Robin [Mattson, Heather], there are so many facets to her character:
one minute he can’t stand her but he’s trying to be compassionate with
her — she’s his mom! But yes, he closed his eyes a lot.... The king of
Soaptown: Were you happy that it finally came out that Heather killed
Reeves: I was.... but I love Kodi [Kitchen, ex-Maggie]. She’s such a
sweetheart. I miss working with her. But I must say, I’m really excited
about what Frank [Valentini, executive producer] and Ron [Carlivati,
head writer] are doing. They are really moving the show along. There’s
real momentum now, and I think they’re doing a fantastic job.
Soaptown: Speaking of coming a long way, what do you think about the
success of Port Chuck?
Reeves: I can’t believe it’s been two years! It was an experimental
idea. The most we ever expected from it was we’d start in Nashville —
our first performance was for the CMA Fest there — and we said, “Let’s
do this for the fans,” to give them something else other than pictures
and autographs. We wanted to also give them a piece of who we are, and
it turned into so much more than we could have ever imagined. Now, it’s
been fun to knead that and mold it into something unique. It’s still
changing — and not going to go away anytime soon!
