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."
