The one and only Katherine Kelly Lang (B&B’s, Brooke) is featured in a new TV Guide Magazine Q&A out today. Katherine who has been with the series now since it’s humble beginnings ( the show hits 23 years young this month) has played Brooke for all she is worth and yet still no Daytime Emmy nomination has come her way. Here is what she had to say about the most shameful omission in daytime history and rapid aging of Brooke’s on-screen kiddies!
Katherine on why she thinks she has been snubbed: “I really don’t know. I was so excited when B&B won because I felt like I had won, too. That was good enough for me. That was my Emmy. I don’t want to think and worry about it. I’ve stressed out in certain years when it comes time to pick out my episodes for submission. I’m no good at it. I sit there for hours and hours staring at shows, and then I leave it up to other people and go with their opinion. The whole process wigs me out. I finally decided to take part in the Emmy judging because I was curious about what’s going on there. But mostly I’m, like, why bother? It’ll just drive me crazy. I love to work and I like to leave the studio feeling I did a good job. That’s what’s important to me.”
Katherine on the SORAS’d aging of Brooke’s many offspring: “It’s so weird for me. They aged Hope, but they didn’t age Brooke’s three-year-old, R.J, who is supposed to be almost the same age as Hope. The two older ones have been aged numerous times. I’m like, how old is Brooke really? At this rate, she should be 80!”
