Digging the dog days of summer!

Soap opera actors work very hard most of the year to entertain us. If they’re in a front burner storyline, they can be memorizing and making their own up to 40 pages of dialog a day!  Wow.  Then, they have to perform the material and make us believe every word is real.  They endure fight scenes, the drag of recap, oh yeah, and okay, they do get to act those love in the afternoon sequences.  Whatta job!  But they have to stay in shape, in sync, and in touch with their feelings in order to make their performances ring true. Finally, after all is said and done, they get to call “cut,” and catch some summertime fun.  

For the past few years, Soapdom has been checking in with a few of your favorite stars to see what plans they have for the summer.  Like us, some travel, some return to hometowns, and others? They just hang with family and friends.  

What’s you’re favorite star up to this summer? Check it out…

Justin Bruening (Jamie, AMC)

“Definitely go to the Virgin Islands. We’ve been down there about eight times in the last year. We have a lot of friends down there.  We met them by going down there.  I can’t swim that well.  I’m not that confident in the water, but I surf. There’s not a lot of surfing there.  But Alexa scuba dives.  I’m not that comfortable scuba diving, anyway. I watched OPEN WATER, and it’s like nope, never going out there.”

Alexa Havins (Babe, AMC)

“We are going to the Virgin Islands to celebrate our one-year anniversary. We’re hoping to visit our friends, one of them is Joe, who owns Joe’s Rum Shack.  I’m a water person.  Jamie’s not so much. So, with Joe and his girlfriend, I’m probably going to go snorkeling.  Jamie surfs, though.”

Marie Wilson (Meg, ATWT)

“(For) summer vacation will be staying put and not flying back and forth every week-end to shoot on the show, because I live here in LA.”

Linda Dano (Felicia, Another World; Gretel/Ray, OLTL, AMC, GH)

“I don’t know, but I guess, the Cape.”

Darin Brooks (Max, DOOL)

“If I’m going on a summer vacation, I’m going home to Hawaii, where I was born and raised.  I’m gonna go home and surf.”  (He was born on Oahu.)

Michael Graziadei (Daniel, Y&R)

“I’ll be in the studio.”

John Ingle (Edward, GH)

“Probably to General Hospital.   Happily.”

Jacob Young (JR, AMC)

“Italy.  And ten weeks on Broadway in Beauty and the Beast.”

Ty Treadway (Host, Soaptalk; Troy/Collin, OLTL)

“I think, maybe the Bahamas.  We’re gonna spend some time with my wife’s family in Texas, in good old Big D -- Dallas.  Of course, September, Soaptalk goes to Hawaii and we’re gonna be on the beach again to launch our next season.”  (Unfortunately, we all learned just recently that SoapTalk is not being picked up for another season, so that’s gonna nix Ty’s Hawaii plans.  LMS).

Tyler Christopher (Nicholas Cassadine, GH)

“I’m going to Mexico on a summer vacation.  I won’t tell you exactly where.”

Maura West (Carly, ATWT)

“I always go Paradise Island in the Bahamas.”

Michael Park (Jack, ATWT)

“I’m going to Puerto Rico with Terri Colombino and her husband, Artie.”

Bryton McClure (Devon,Y&R)

“Summer vacation, ahhh!  I’ve been to Rio once before.  That would be a nice place (to go again.)”

Renee Elise Goldsberry (Evangeline, OLTL)

“Family!  Detroit with my father and my brothers, or in Houston with my mother.  Anywhere my family is, is vacation to me.”

Alec Musser (Del, AMC)

“I will probably go to the South Pacific somewhere to surf.  Tahiti, maybe.  I’ve spent a lot of time in Southeast Asia and Indonesia surfing. This year I’d like to go to Tahiti.”

Matthew Ashford (Jack, DOOL)

“Probably going to Virginia.  Got family in Virginia, northern and southern.  And, maybe Northern California, I’ve got family up there, too.  And, maybe Canada because I’ve got family up there, too.  My dual citizenship is finally coming through because my Dad was born in Canada.”

Judi Evans (Adrienne/Bonnie, DOOL; Paulina, AW)

“I’d love to go to an island, either St. Barts or Hawaii, or Catalina!  Anything with a little ocean around it.”

Michelle Ray Smith (Ava, GL)

“We’re going to Jamaica at the end of May for 3 days.  With my boyfriend, Brian.”

Julie Berman (LuLu, GH)

“Europe, I love Europe.  I went to Italy once and I absolutely loved it.  If I had another opportunity to go there and see art, I would do it again any time.”

Ron Raines (Alan, GL)

“I’d love to go back to Italy.  There’s so many places I’d like to go.”

Robert Newman, (Josh, GL)

“We’ve been talking about going down to Hilton Head, South Carolina for a week or so.  But we’re also coming up on our 20-year anniversary so maybe Europe somewhere.  Maybe Belgium.”

Austin Peck (Austin, DOOL)

“Oh yea! I’m going to Big Sur and some Island somewhere.”

Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor, Y&R)

“I’m not going on a summer vacation.  In the fall, I’m going East to watch the leaves turn.”

Joe Mascolo (ex Massimo, B&B)

“I will either go to Europe or Jamaica.”

Kate Linder (Esther, Y&R)

“I haven’t even thought about it.  I like traveling, just to see things, maybe relax and enjoy.”

Drew Tyler Bell (Thomas, B&B)

“I might be going to Hawaii with my family.  I have a brother who’s at the Air Force Academy and he just got notice that he’s going to be sent there so I think we might go crash his party for a week or so.  If that happens, it’s definitely something to look forward to.”

Eric Martsolf (Ethan, Passions)

“I don’t think I’ll be taking one for the next ten years. (joke)  Right now, just outside of the nursery, probably, where ever that maybe.  (With the new baby here) a vacation for me...




... would be to Jamba Juice or El Pollo Loco or Baskin-Robbins.  That would be a dream come true for us right now.   In fact, if the fans could ship the ice cream to him, that would be perfect.  He accepts all flavors.”

Dylan Fergus (Noah, Passions)

“I have family in Northern California so usually I go up to San Francisco or the Santa Cruz area and toodle around.  I have two little brothers and I usually spend time with them.  My girlfriend actually wants to go abroad, so we’re going to go and maybe vacation somewhere overseas for a week or so.”

Amelia Heinle (Victoria, Y&R)

“We’re going to Mexico this summer, hopefully, if it works out.  There’s a little place down there…the ocean is blue and my son likes to play in the ocean and it’s really warm.”

Greg Rikaart (Kevin, Y&R)

“I don’t know if it’s gonna happen this summer, it may happen in the fall, but I plan a trip to Italy.  I went last year and I felt like I didn’t have enough time to see everything I wanted to see, so a little more exploration this year.”

Windsor Harmon (Thorne, B&B)


Ronn Moss (Ridge, B&B)

“Either the High Sierras or maybe Tahiti or St. Tropez.  Buenos Aires, and we might even dance, too.”

Lorenzo Lamas (Hector, B&B)

“A summer vacation, just like when I was a kid!  I wanna go to the beach. Actually, I am going to New York this summer.”

Hunter Tylo (Taylor, B&B)

“I’m really enjoying doing nature stuff – hiking and river rafting.”

Ashley Jones (Bridget, B&B)

“Kauai, probably for a couple of weeks.  We have a house there, so I’m anxious to get back there. I miss it when I’m not there.”
