|EMMY 2007 ~ SOAPnet's "Night Before Party" Red Carpet|
SOAPNet’s got the party scene locked! A great way to celebrate the night before the big broadcast, it’s really low-key. Dress is, well, up to the guests. Some New York actors arrived in what we now call “Casual Friday,” others as if they were attending a cocktail party. GL’s Robert Bogue (Mallet) looked like he just stepped out of a Brooks Brothers catalog. Their LA counterparts were just as diverse. But, they all looked like they were ready to ring in the Emmy’s with a bang. For some of the newbies, it was their first experience with the red carpet and the press. For others, it was like riding a bike. They know how to roll with the punches.
The first person Soapdom got to chat with was Lawrence Saint-Victor (Remy, GL). He looked quite spiffy. “I’d like to say I dressed myself, but that would be a lie.” But, he picked the shoes and he was quite proud of that. As for what’s coming up on GL, Saint-Victor buttoned his lips.
“I’m a bit of a gypsy, I go where the work is.” That’s Heather Tom’s (ex-Kelly, OLTL, ex-Victoria, Y&R) mantra. She has no idea where the road will lead, and she never says never about going back to where she’s been. But for the moment, she’s in LA and very happy. However, she loved living in NY, where she did a lot of theatre, but hasn’t gone back to it here in LA. Tom was also stunning as a brunette.
One of daytime’s young hunks Justin Breuning (Jamie, AMC) was more than happy to talk about Jamie and his once true love, Babe. Are they headed for some sort of romantic bliss? “We’re growing in that direction. You know, I’m tutoring her, a teacher-student kind of thing.”
Bruening and his real life wife, Alexa Havins who plays Babe, are glad to be working together again. They’ve had separate storylines since they returned from their real life honeymoon. “We never actually see each other. She was in the first part of the day and I was in the second. It’s better when we’re working together. We’re both perfectionists and we ride each other, ‘don’t say your line like that, it’s bad.’ We do that a lot.” As for his reel recent love interest, Sydney Penny (Julia), “She had her baby about two weeks ago and she’s on maternity leave.” But Breuning guaranteed us she’ll be back and the complications will be even more complicated!
His character is really weird, but he’s not. David Chisum (Miles, OLTL) assured us of this little detail. “Do I go around scaring people?” he joked. “No way.” Charming and kind is more like it. Chisum has done a couple of episodes on Y&R, Sunset Beach, and Port Charles, but this is his first contract role on daytime. He likes to think of Miles as misunderstood! “Everything comes from his desire to be normal, to fit into society, to be well liked and accepted. I think he’s an innocent. I think he’s naïve. I think he’s easily influenced by the outside world, the things he sees on television, the way people treat each other. He soaks that all in, like a child.”
Twenty-five years on Y&R, that’s quite a reason for Kate Linder (Esther) to celebrate. In television terms, it was only supposed to be a walk-on. In our world, that would be a nano-second. But here she is, a governor of the Television Academy, a spokesperson for her fellow daytime actors and a dedicated volunteer and celebrity spokesperson for ALS, or as some people...
