One of our favorite contributors to Entertainment Weekly, Abby West was seen on yesterday’s episode of One Life to Live! Remember the scene where Bo gets on a plane to find David, and Rex is racing after him to get on board and the airline attendant says she cant do anything to help him? That was EW.com’s Abby West in her acting debut during her fun visit to the folks in Llanview.
In her new piece , West documents her experience, especially getting to work John-Paul Lavoisier (Rex) and Robert S. Woods (Bo). Here’s a bit of her journal for the day; ”By the time I showed up on the show’s Manhattan set at 8 a.m. in late January to film my little scene as a slightly sassy airline employee, the other actors and crew were in full swing. J.P. (yeah, we’re close like that now) was already in his dressing room, grabbing a bite, and watching a movie on his iPod as he waited to do his blocking. As a movie junkie, he was only too happy to talk pop culture and movie trivia as we hung out.
Next it was on to the hair and makeup room, where I got done-up alongside the fabulous Hillary B. Smith as she ran lines with her on-screen son Eddie Alderson. So I got to listen as Nora tried to convince Matthew of his uncle Clint’s many treacherous acts. Then Smith, Woods, J.P., and I went into a non-descript room to rehearse our scene with director Jill Mitwell. Yes, managing to remember my five very brief lines was very important to me, so I was glad for the chance to practice.”
