2 December 7th, 2009 Crystal Chappell featured in March 2010 Curve Magazine!

Crystal Chappell - Nov 19, 2009Media Magnet Crystal Chappell has another mainstream magazine feature coming out in March 2010, thanks to Jamey Giddens over at Daytime Confidential who got the soap superstar for a new interview in Curve Magazine.  Jamey and Crystal chat about how Guiding Light’s Otalia inspired  her new web soap Venice.  Here is an excerpt below!

Chappell:  “It was totally inspired by them. I was completely invested in Otalia and always will be. I couldn’t quite let it go. It didn’t feel right. I had so many people writing to me telling me some of the terrible things that happened to them being gay, and also the really joyful things.”

“So I went to my friend Kimmy [Turrisi], who is a writer, and said, “I wanna do a web soap about a gay woman. She’s out and proud of who she is, so it won’t be about her struggling with her sexuality and I want it to not just be about her, but about her community and family”. She came back to me with these amazing characters. I approached Jessie [Leccia] and she was like, “Well sure, I’ll do it!” She was just as committed to Otalia as I was.”

Make sure to check your newstands in early spring for Crystal’s ‘Curvy’ feature!
