Ilene Kristen (Roxy, OLTL) chatted with Daytime Confidential’s Jamey Giddens about her character Roxy Balsom’s Will & Grace type budding friendship with Llanview’s Kyle Lewis (Brett Claywell). In addition, Ilene weighs in on Roscoe Born’s upcoming re-emergence in Llanview and OLTL cancellation talks. Here are a few excerpts:
DC: I am loving Roxy’s relationship with Kyle. You guys are daytime’s Will and Grace! What is it like working so close these days with Brett Claywell?
IK: Oh I love it. Brett and Scott [Evans] are great guys. Really nice additions to the show. I haven’t been working a lot recently, but I have a lot of good stuff coming up soon
DC: What do you make of all the One Life to Live cancellation talk?
IK: Nobody wants to think about that kind of stuff. No one wants to think about losing their jobs or a character they love. I love Roxy. I’ve had a sensational time playing her and hope we can continue doing what we do.
