As the World Turns, Jake Silbermann (Noah) has been dealing with playing blind, and his alter-ego is going to have a major revelation, that his Luke, might be falling for another man. AfterElton chatted with Silbermann for a few and got his thoughts on Noah/Luke/Reid, and how he would like Noah Mayer to wrap up his Oakdale life when ATWT’s come to its conclusion this September. Here are some excerpts below!
Jake on how Noah will react when finding out about Luke and Reid: “ How do you think he should feel? I mean, I think anybody who sees their significant other for a long time with someone else would be feeling a number of things, (like) pain. Also, I think Noah was acting presumptuously on his own part and not thinking clearly without his sight and maybe we’ll see him act more clearly when he gets his vision back. In terms of his affection for Luke. (Pause) It was important for Noah to know that he could be on his own. He knew before that he was a self-sustaining, independent person. I think in any relationship, it’s important not to need to be with someone, but to want to be with someone. He needed to prove he could be alone and not need Luke because then that wouldn’t be fair to Luke either.
Jake on where he would like Noah to be on the last episode: “As an actor there are so many different avenues that I would love to go with this character, but I’d really like to see first and foremost an ending that satisfies the fans. The fans have been through this and I want them to be happy. I want them to know that they have some kind of closure to these characters and I think a number of fans have expressed to me that they would like to see Luke and Noah together in the end.”
