Megan Ward Dishes on Her Actor Crushes
In the January 8 issue of Soap Opera Digest, there's a fun feature on Megan Ward.
In the article, the General Hospital beauty opens up about her secret Hollywood crushes. The actress talks about what it was like to work with the following leading men:
Jason Gedrick, Class of '96, 1993:
"[The cast] was all pretty close in age so it was very much like a college experience. We were all very close. I have really fond memories of all of us going out and hanging out together and having a Christmas party at Jason's apartment with just the actors. I think he and I bought Kari [Wuhrer, ex-Reese, General Hopital] ice skates [laughs]!"
Jon Favreau, Jeremy Piven, David Spade, PCU, 1994:
"That was the best. I had been in Toronto all that winter, from August through April, doing Class of '96. In May, we were canceled. I got PCU and went back in June to film on the same campus, in the same town, that I had just spent the year in. So, I was 'Julie the cruise director' for the entire cast. We were all under 30, most of us in our early 20s, with a per diem, working night shoots, sleeping all day.
It was the best, so many talented people were in that film before anybody knew them. Piven was awesome. Spade and I were totally buddies. He was the big star of the film and I took him under my wing. It's true! I showed him around town and got him all connected. The last time I saw him, he and Favreau were at a party at the Playboy Mansion."
Donnie Wahlberg, Boomtown, 2002-03:
"I was not as big a New Kids [on the Block] fan as some of my peers. I was a little too old [laughs]." How's this for a funny story? My brother and brother-in-law both worked on that job, too. My brother-in-law was a gaffer and my brother was the dolly grip. It was my first job after having [son] Oliver and it took me awhile to get back in shape, longer than I thought it would.
On my first day of work, I was completely naked with Donnie Wahlberg in bed with four people in the room me, Donnie, the camera operator and the dolly grip pushing the camera, so who was the fourth person in the room? My poor brother! He couldn't look up because I had three pieces of tape on! And by the way, I had just had a baby and I was actually okay with that. In fact, it was one of the best, most liberating scenes I've done as an actor and I'm so proud of that scene.
It's still the first scene on my reel. I was never more physically confident because I was so grateful for what I had left [laughs]."
