Things will be heating up in the coming weeks as Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) amps up her game plan against Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) to win the affections again of Nikolas Cassadine (Tyler Christopher)! And even as recent as the fourth of July, Britt found a way to get some reminiscing time with the Prince! But just who will end up the victor?
On-Air On-Soaps caught up with one of our favorite gents, Tyler Christopher on the red carpet at the recent 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards for a video interview where we had the chance to ask him a few select questions.
We asked Tyler: who he thinks Nikolas should end up with romantically, what does he think of his scenes with on-screen son, Nicolas Bechtel (Spencer), and if he would like more Cassadines to be resurrected and return to Port Charles and more! Here’s what Tyler had to say, then watch the video of our conversation following it!
So, who do you want Nikolas to end up with? Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) … or someone else perhaps we don’t even know about?
TYLER: Oh, you’re not going to get me to play favorites! They have both worked on-screen and that’s what we hope for. You basically have a 50/50 split with the fans. Half of them want Elizabeth … and half of them want Britt. So, we have done our job in that regard.
What has it been like working with Nicholas Bechtel as your on-screen son, Spencer Cassadine? The two of you are hilarious together … you must have fun with him?
TYLER: Oh, my God. We totally have fun. Our take with each other is: he does not treat me like a grumpy old dad, and I don’t treat him like a nine-year-old kid. We talk to each other on the same level. I don’t know if that means he’s really mature, or I’m like a child… I don’t know what that means. (Laughs)
Do you want to have more Cassadines come back to GH?
TYLER: I do! I have always lobbied for more Cassadines to come back on the show. Unfortunately, we did our diligence in killing them off quite hastily… and making sure they were dead, after they were already dead! But if the team wants to bring them back, I am all for it.
Are you enjoying your time back at GH? When you were on the soap previously, you were carrying a lot of story. Is it different for you this time, because the way they do the show now, and tell story, where it’s more spread out among the characters on the canvas?
TYLER: It is! It’s a lot of work in a short amount of time, but it was always like that, but more so now then ever. But you do get a welcome break every once in a while were they do focus on different areas of the show. It all works out, and everyone is happy, and we are doing better than ever.
Watch our red carpet video interview from the Daytime Emmys with Tyler below! Then weigh-in! Are you rooting for Nik and Liz … or, Nik and Britt? Do you enjoy the Spencer/Nikolas scenes? And, would you like to see more Cassadines return … or new ones come out of the woodwork to stir things up in Port Charles?
