Tonight’s the Night (in the immortal words of rock crooner Rod Stewart) that Crystal Chappell’s web series Venice finally premieres. Michael Fairman caught up with Crystal yesterday for an upcoming year end feature interview for Frontiers-IN LA Magazine and asked the creator, producer, and star of Venice her final thoughts going into tonight’s big premiere!
Are you ready for the premiere? It’s less than 24 hours away! OMG!
Crystal: “Yes, it’s very exciting. At this point I have so many last things I am overseeing and we are still getting it ready and it’s down to the wire.” The show itself is put together, and I am very happy how it turned out, but it’s the little technical things ….so we are still doting are “I’s” and crossing our “T’s”, but I am excited and a little anxious. You just want to make everyone can get on and see it! We are keeping our fingers crossed and hoping for the best! I am also thrilled that the time is finally here.”
Do you think the audience will end up rooting for Ani and Gina (Jessica Leccia and Crystal) as we did for Otalia on Guiding Light?
Crystal: “They have that connection that happens every once in awhile and they get it each other, flaws and all, but other things keep them apart…..its the journey of it. I think people will have to watch and see the different dynamics of these various couples.”
Will you be sitting there in front of the computer with popcorn watching tonight?
Crystal: “I am going to be in Vegas, with Vodka (Laughs) Who eats popcorn in Vegas? I have the Guiding Light So Long Springfield Las Vegas event this weekend, and so many of the Otalia and Venice fan base will be there. I get to show them that Gina is going to be there! So, I will be there with everyone and see it with them, and Kim Turrisi is coming and it will be exciting!”
Make sure to stop everything and get to your computer at 8PMPST/11PMEST tonight for the series premiere at www.venicetheseries.com
