~TALK TO ME TUESDAY-OCTOBER 28, 2014~



           




        MY INTERVIEW WITH AMANDA BAKER (EX-BABE CHANDLER, AMC)


Hi Amanda and thanks for joining me on The Soap Spiel!

Thanks for having me! 


Congrats on your marriage and birth of your baby boy. How has that been like so far?

Thank you! It's been so amazing! My son, Wilder, is 6 months old and he's sitting up on his own, smiling, and giggling all the time. My husband and I are loving every minute of it! It's such a fun age. 

Would you do another soap again?

Of course! I have such wonderful memories of being on GH and All My Children. You become very close with your co-stars and the storylines are always fun. The characters I've gotten to play have been so interesting and layered. I'm always open to playing other characters. 


Are you currently working on anything?

Currently, I'm doing mostly commercials and really spending a lot of time with my son. He actually just got an agent as well, ha ha! I'll be driving him to auditions soon enough! 

I am sure he will be a natural like his mother!

Guilty pleasure?

Ooooh, I'd have to say watching all of the "Real Housewives" shows. There's something about them that just suck me in! 



How has the cancellation of AMC affected the soap world in your opinion?

It's sad to see so many soaps off the air, especially AMC. AMC was one of the best and it was on the air for such a long time. The fans were really loyal and amazing and I know there are many people, including myself, who wish they would bring it back. It's really the end of an era. 




Thanks so much for joining me on the spiel. It was my pleasure to have you here!

MY INTERVIEW WITH WEEKDAYS WITH MURP CO-HOST

EMILY CORBETT

Hi Emily! Thanks so much for joining me here on the Spiel! Also, happy birthday!!


Please Tell us a little about yourself.

Hi guys! First off, thanks for interviewing me. Well, I'm Emily, but everyone calls me Em. I'm 17, today actually, and I'm a high school senior. I sing and act, and I co-host Weekdays with Murph with my best friend Cody. I live in Tennessee, and my part time job while I'm in school is answering the phone at my dad's office. I'm really girlie, everyone calls me a Princess because I always, for the most part, have my hair and makeup done and I don't like to get dirty or hot. The Southern heat makes me ill. I'm really close with my Grandparents and my Grandmother and I talk every single day multiple times. I love my TV shows and I'm a dedicated fan to all my favorite actors and shows. 

How did you get started on Weekdays with Murph?
Well, it's actually a funny story. Cody and I met on twitter, and he tweeted to me and said I should check his show out. At first, I kinda thought he was one of those crazy twitter spammers, but I learned that wasn't true really fast. I listened to a few shows and DMed him and said that since he loved GH so much, he should do a weekly recap. He decided to do it, and that first week he did it, I called in. It was a hit, and the rest is history. 

Fave show?
General Hospital 


Favorite character past or present?
Laura Spencer and Carly Jacks



Guilty pleasure?
Hmmmm, Law and Order re-runs, M&Ms, and mid afternoon naps. 



Thanks so so much again Emily! It was my pleasure and honor to have you here. 

Thanks so much for letting me talk a little about myself! I just want to say thank you to everyone, including you, for supporting Cody and myself and our show.

    ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS, DAWN HENNESSEY
















    Hi Dawn! Thank you for joining me on The Soap Spiel. It is an honor and pleasure to have one of my best friends in the world here.




    Which events did you go to at the GHFCW?

    Brian Craig, and Kelly Thiebaud event, Teresa Castillo, and Emme Rylan event, Main Cast event, Jason, and Dominic event, and The Karaoke event.... 



    What was your favorite event at the GHFCW?

    I gotta say the Karaoke event was by far the highlight of the weekend. If they have it again next year I'm definitely attending. 





    There must have been lots of people there, Did you get to meet everyone you wanted?

    Yes the whole weekend jammed packed with soap stars. I got to see everyone I wanted too...


    Any moment during the weekend stand out to you?


    Yep, meeting Ryan Carnes twice was what stands out to me. First encounter he thought we met before. He said to me "You look very familiar have we met before?" I told him "No, but I've tweeted to you." Second encounter he totally remembered my name and that made me feel good and he autographed 2 photos for me and on one he wrote all my love, and on the other photo he wrote Thanks for the love...


    Amazing! So glad you had fun. Next year, I hope to join you! Thanks again Dawn! xoxo

    MY INTERVIEW WITH RADIO HOST, CODY MURPHY (WEEKDAYS WITH MURPH)






    Thank you so much Cody for being here!



    I thought I would do something different, when I approached you, what did you think of my idea?

    First of all, thank you so much for reaching out to me about this.  I've been a huge fan of this blog for a long time, and
    I, again, appreciate the opportunity.  I honestly was completely shocked, but humbled, that you'd reach out to somebody
    like myself, who, in no way, shape, form or fashion, is in the entertainment industry at all, so, just to know that I had
    somebody out there who appreciated me and what I do enough to ask me to do something like this, is humbling in and
    of itself.




    Tell us a little about yourself.

    Where do I start?  Ha.  I've been a soap fan for 10+ years.  I originally grew up an ABC Daytime fan, but, recently have branched out to other soaps.  I host a radio show called Weekdays with Murph, where I bring on actors from soaps to
    chat with fans for about 30 minutes or so.  I enjoy it, it's just a little hobby.





    What made you start your radio show?

    Interesting question.  As I said, I've been a Daytime fan for a while, and an actor I follow on Twitter had tweeted out one day that she was going to be on a radio show.  I thought, "Okay, I'll tune in, just to support her."  I did, and as it turned out, I think
    I actually ended up calling in to that show.  After the show, I thought about it for a while, and went, "You know what?  If they can
    do this, I can do this".  I mulled it over for a couple months, and started the show on August 20, 2012.  We're about to celebrate our 2 year anniversary in a month and a half.  I also recently brought on a co-host, Emily.  I wouldn't trade anything about the show for the world.  It's afforded me so many opportunities to chat with some of the sweetest, most down to earth people on the planet.





    What shows do you watch?

    Aside from General Hospital, I tend to be all over the map with my shows, anything from reality to drama.  I have a policy with any new show, I'll give it at least an episode or two to see if I like it.  That's actually worked out for me pretty good.  Some of my favorite shows I still watch have started out with this thought, "Let me just watch this and see if it's any good".  To answer your question, I LOVE Nashville, this new reality show on ABC called Rising Star, GH, of course, and the list goes on.  We'd be here all night if I had to list them all.

    Favorite interview?

    That's like picking a favorite child, I can't do it.  I will say this, though:  A few interviews that are close to my heart are the first time GH's Kelly Thiebaud was on, and my interview with Kathleen Gati, who are two of the sweetest people you'd ever want to come in contact with.





    Favorite character?

    That's a tie between GH's Ava and Britt.  Both Maura West and Kelly Thiebaud are complete sweethearts.  With Kelly, you wouldn't think she'd be as sweet as she is simply because of the character she plays, but I can't say enough good things about her.


    Least fave character?

    Tie between Duke, and, I hate to say it, Sonny's been getting on my nerves a bit, lately.  I used to be a HUGE Sonny fan, now, not so much


    Any more dreams you need to accomplish?

    I am actually in the process of writing a book called "Throwing Curveballs".  I have a dream of seeing all 30 Major League Baseball stadiums by the time I'm 30 myself and I'm writing about my experience at every one, so I'm working on that, hopefully it will be finished within the next couple years, cross your fingers.  Other than that, just keep doing what I'm doing with the show and hopefully some good things will come of that.

    Thank you so much Cody for doing me the honor. I am a huge fan of yours personally and professionally. All the best to you always!

    Thank YOU for asking me.  Like I said, I've always been a huge fan of you and this blog and anything I can do to support you and your projects, I'm more than happy to.

    TAKING A SMALL HIATUS










    Hi everyone! Hope all is well. There are a few things I wanted to discuss.

    Thank you for all the loyal spielers and the support. Please share and spread the word.

    If you are on twitter, follow us there @thesoapspiel. You can also find us on Facebook. I will be updating that daily or every other day.
