The one and only Nancy Lee Grahn gave an insightful interview with TV Guide Magazine about her character, Alexis Davis’s newest family dilemma with her children! You see, her daughter Kristina (fathered by mobster Sonny Corinthos) is being badly beaten by her abusive boyfriend, and blames another man for her plight in the process. Grahn weighed in on the parenting situation.  Here are a few excerpts!

Grahn on the message this storyline sends out to parents of teens: “I have talked to plenty of parents who have great parenting philosophies and are very communicative with their children, and still their kids are doing all kinds of bad things. Of course, it doesn’t help that Kristina is surrounded by violence. The bullets are always flying in Port Charles. We’ve got a lot of hit n’ runs. We’ve got kidnappings. Kristina’s father [Sonny, played by Maurice Benard] is a gangster who kills people for a living. Let’s face it, the odds of her turning out normal aren’t good. Clearly, the poor kid is headed for therapy.”

Grahn on why Alexis did not see the warning signs from Kristina: “You’d think that in real life it would hard to miss the signs, but it happens. And [head writer] Bob Guza was careful not to put Alexis in a situation where she had any overt clues. Listen, Alexis isn’t perfect. [Laughs] She has all kinds of flaws, some I don’t even know about. When they pass out the scripts, I only read my pages so I had no idea what the other people in Port Charles were saying about my character. Apparently everybody thinks she’s a control freak!”
