Rejection, Kissing & Taking Care of Your Feet

One of the best parts of starting PLANK has been the opportunity to hear from so many of you – your thoughts, feedback and kind words have been so great to read. And, while I haven’t responded to every comment, I do read and appreciate each one of them … and they’ve given me several ideas for future blogs.

Recently, I received an email from one of our PLANK readers, Lynne Hasselman, who shared not only kind words about the blog, but also a number of suggestions for future topics. I was so impressed with Lynne’s thoughtful email (she’s clearly a writer), that I thought I’d take on the whole thing as my first real video blog.

A Day in the Life on Set

I am so grateful to have had the career I’ve had – with the opportunity to work regularly in daytime, as well as guest stints in primetime and now my online role on THE BAY. And I’m forever grateful to those of you who’ve watched and stayed with me over the years.

I know that what you all see onscreen, or read about in magazines, etc., can seem so glamorous; but I have to admit … as much as I love what I do, it’s not nearly as glamorous as it all seems. In fact, what you’re seeing is the result of a lot of hard work on the behalf of so many people – writers, directors, crews and my fellow cast mates. It’s early mornings and late nights. Sometimes hours in the hair & makeup chair.  And it’s usually a whole lot of hurry up and wait.
