Thorsten Kaye Talks About Changes on All My Children

Thorsten Kaye Pic Here are a few highlights from a recent interview Soap Opera Digest conducted with All My Children hunk, Thorsten Kaye...

On Soaps' Tendency to Rewrite History: "It's not unavoidable, but I think for an outsider coming in, it's a different way of working. You don't know what's coming and you don't necessarily know what comes before you because that changes. That's something that bothers me. I don't mind the ride, but there has to be a cornerstone, there has to be a history to someone.

If something was a lie for the last three years, that kind of gets me. That's why I left One Life to Live [where he played Patrick Thornhart from 1995-97], because they changed the past. And suddenly, you have no tools left."

On Disciplining Four-Year-Old Daughter McKenna
: "She'll do stuff that I have to tell her not to do, like throwing things in the air. It's terribly hard because our house is filled with cartoon art. I've got a big, eight-foot Chuck Jones bunny and one of the brooms from Fantasia and she doesn't understand why she can't play with them. They're cartoony and she's seen them on TV and so it's a little tough to explain."

On AMC's Transition From Ex-Head Writer Megan McTavish to the Head-Writing Team Of James Harmon Brown And Barbara Esensten: "If somebody else is coming in, it's like you're between coaches or something. You go, 'Let's just try to get through what has already been established by the last one.' We can't just completely stop it and come up with something else because whoever's coming in next will change it again. But I think over the next few weeks, it's all gonna change."

All My Children Quotes

[to Myrtle about Erica] Somebody give me a stick so I can beat the stupid out of her.

Opal

Maggie Stone: I wonder if it's the number of nights that really matter. I mean, love, it's more than just the physical part. It's whether or not you connect. You can't plan who you fall in love with.
Jamie Martin: Well, how do you even know if it's real? I mean, so many people fall in love and go through the motions, but it's not even close.
Maggie Stone: Maybe some people don't even get to have it.
Jamie Martin: Or they don't recognize it when it comes along.
Maggie Stone: Or when you do finally get it so deep it's a part of you, only to have it taken away. You know, when I - when we couldn't find Bianca, I experienced an emptiness I've never felt before, I mean, like what it would be like if Bianca had never surfaced again. I had to put that out of my mind. I had to forget it.
Jamie Martin: It's complicated - love. It's so unique every time, with every person. And when the real thing comes along, I guess we just have to hope we see it.
Maggie Stone: Or hold onto it.
