As the World Turns Writer Dishes on Nuke

by at . Comments

Jean Passanante is a writer on As the World Turns.

She recently spoke to AfterElton about various characters on the show, most notably Luke and Noah.

On Luke and Noah (aka Nuke): "It hasn’t been polarizing. Of course you don’t really know whether someone is gay or straight when they tell you they love the story, but I can only assume the positive response has far outweighed any negative feedback we’ve gotten. I mean, the audience loves this couple!"


So, as many fans have asked: Why haven't Luke and Noah consummated their relationship? Heck, even Luke’s significantly younger cousins Parker and Liberty have gotten it on!

“Yeah but then everybody yelled at us for that!” Passanante said, before turning serious. “We’ll take the time we think we need to tell the story. Part of what you’re experiencing as a delay is the fact that [Luke and Noah] just haven’t been on the air very much.”
