Personal Quotes (2)

I left [Hollywood] in 1991. I was starting to reach that age where roles were getting harder to get, but even more than that, I lost my passion for it. I remember once saying that if acting stops being fun, please give me the good sense to do something else.
It seems that so many soaps seem to try to follow trends and are getting away from what soap operas have always been about: family, love, sex, illegitimate children, divorces and adultery. They have gotten into these strange story lines about bringing people back from the dead and supernatural phenomena, trying to find an audience.
