The New Chris Hughes
Dylan Bruce has been hired to play AS THE WORLD TURNS's eighth Chris Hughes, a role last played by Bailey Chase in 2005. Bruce first appears on October 25 — with Emily, who's due back on October 24. Kelley Menighan Hensley, who returned to ATWT a week ago to screen test with all of the Chris hopefuls, reports back to work for real today, after a three month maternity leave. "The idea of going back to work is a little intimidating at this juncture, but I will manage. I have 21 scenes!" grins the actress, who gave birth to third child, Georgia Grace (they call her "Gigi") on June 28.
"Once she got here, in all honesty, I haven't even thought about work. I don't know what that tells me. I'm reserving all of my judgment because I realize my daughter is only nine weeks old at this time. Your perspective changes and hopefully I'll get back into a rhythm of work and I'll love who I'm working with and I'll still get to work with Grayson [McCouch, Dusty]. Hopefully all those things that I loved about work will be there when I get back. I'm banking on it."
She's also been catching up with the show. "I slowly see the strife between Holden and Lily, obviously, because I love to watch Jonny [Hensley, Holden, her husband] and I followed the Jack and Katie story. The whole time I'm just throwing things at the television because I want her with Brad! I think they're so good together. And put Jack back with Carly where he belongs!"
