Everyone is waiting to see the debut of Chrishell Stause in her new soap role on Days of our Lives come Mid-August. While Chrishell is still sworn to secrecy to not reveal much of her new Salem alter-ego, it is difficult not to, especially since the beautiful actress had been taping for a few months now at the NBC soap!
On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman caught up with Chrishell at the 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Creative Arts Awards a few weekends ago for this video interview, where we ask the former All My Children star about what she can tell us about her new role on DAYS!
Stause relates: “I can give you a little bit. So here is what I am allowed to say … she works in a hospital. She has a big secret. I work a lot with Galen Gering (Rafe) and Lauren Koslow (Kate), who I love. I can say she is very opposite of Amanda on All My Children. So I am playing something completely different!”
At the Creative Arts Emmys, The Young and the Restless current casting director, Judy Blye Wilson won for Casting Direction, Chrishell took a moment in our interview to honor her, and relieve her casting process of getting her first soap role on AMC through Judy, who was at that time casting the ABC soap. And, that Judy was also responsible for Chrishell’s BFF, Y&R’s Melissa Claire Egan landing her soap roles as well!
Stause recalled, “Do I remember? Of course I remember. I am from Kentucky! So is Judy Blye Wilson, and so we bonded on that. You have to remember, this is the first time I had gone through the audition process, but I had gone through a lot of rejection before that. So, I was thinking, ‘free trip to New York’, whatever. But Judy was so lovely, and made me feel special the whole time. She told me later she always had her eye on me.”
In addition Chrishell shares her thoughts on the revival of All My Children, working with former co-star, Ricky Paull Golden (Ex-Jake, AMC, now Jesse, B&B) and more!
