In a new interview with We Love Soaps, Tom Pelphrey discusses his return to Guiding Light, his new play and why he is choosing not to work at General Hospital or another soap role at this time. Here are a few excerpts:
On the ending of Guiding Light…
“It’s sad. For me, on many levels, and obviously I know everyone that works there, it makes me sad to see my friends lose their jobs. On the bigger level, you’d like to think that certain things are above the cut, with GL being the longest running show. I talked to a lot of people over there when the announcement was made, and they kind of knew this was coming, but the day the news broke it was like a punch in a stomach.”
On going to General Hospital” or another soaps…..
“It’s something that I’m not looking to do right now. There have been discussions in the past. The bottom line is that when I was working on GUIDING LIGHT I was very happy. I love it and I loved the people there, and loved being able to work every day. I was grateful to be able to make a living as an actor. I would never say a bad thing at all about working on a soap. But it’s something right now I’m not exactly looking to do.”
