0 June 27th, 2009 “AMC’s” Beth Ehlers sounds off!

ehlers.jpgWe were wondering the same thing that “AMC’s” Beth Ehlers (Taylor) has been wondering.  Where is she in major storyline?  Being one of daytime’s most treasured performers, something has seemed a miss with her story.  Well, in last week’s edition of blogtalkradio’s “Stardish Radio”, and brought to our attention on the web in a post today at We Love Soaps,  Ehlers had this to say about her pairing with vet, JR Martinez (Brot): “As many times as I would casually try to go into my boss’s office and say, ‘Uh, you are going to start integrating me, right?’ When you’ve been doing this as long as I’ve been doing it, you know how it’s supposed to be done. But you can’t tell you bosses that because it’s like any other job in the world, you can’t know more than your boss because they hate you for it. And so you have to be careful when you go in that you don’t tell somebody how to do their job. And I wanted to scream at people. I wanted to go in and say, ‘Hello, you’re burying me here. You’re making this really hard. First you give me somebody who, God bless him, I love J.R. but he’s not an actor.’ And so that’s hard enough with somebody who…it’s going to be a long time before he gets out of second gear. And I’m constantly having to hedge my performance cause I can’t be doing Shakespeare while he’s doing something else.”

Ehlers  also gives her thoughts on “AMC’s” head writer, Chuck Pratt’s performance and JR Martinez tweeted in response to Ehlers comments. Make sure to give it a listen and check out the post.
