    Maura is so grateful and thankful for the gifts/roles she has been given and it’s lovely! However it takes an incredible person and talent to turn those roles into characters that we love or love to hate. Well done Maura!
    Great clip Michael!


  2. Phyllis Smith says:

    I don’t think she is drunk. But, she’s clearly overwhelmed & emotional. I’ve seen & heard her in other video interviews, and other than the tears, she’s the same way. Love or hate Ava Jerome’s actions, anyone who watches the character can tell that Maura West is one FIERCE actress who is above & beyond in her commitment. Also, enough can’t be said about the writers who just keep hitting gold with her character. How does that happen? It’s one thing to cast a good actor. Y&R had her for a time, and evidently weren’t able to do anything with her. I guess it really is a blessing to hit that perfect pitch with the actor, the character & the writing.
