Every performer at any award show should listen to these tips from The Young and the Restless and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Eileen Davidson, on how to deliver your acceptance speech. Davidson talked with BravoTV.com, relating her experience when winning the Daytime Emmy for the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her role as Kristen DiMera on Days of our Lives back in 2014.
In addition, the website’s Daily Dish segment exclusively revealed that one of Davidson’s soap opera mystery series novels is being turned into a movie! That would be Dial Emmy for Murder. Eileen expressed: “I wrote these books 10 years ago, one every year for a few years, and one of them has been optioned. And I’m in the middle of writing a second draft for it, and hopefully we’re gonna be filming it this summer. So I’ll be starring in that, co-writing it, exec producing, and that should be fun.”
As to the story in her novel and now on to the film, Eileen said, ”They’re written around the soap opera industry, and the protagonist is basically my character. She loves mysteries, and so she gets involved in trying to solve these murders. So you find her always in trouble when she’s always trying to figure things out, and all these people keep dying in these very dramatic ways, so it’s gonna be fun.”
