News for the week of 23-Nov-2015

Nice joint interview over at Michael Fairman’s site, as Tyler Christopher (Nikolas) and Rebecca Budig (Hayden) talk about vibing as an on-screen couple and the surprise of working with one another. Well, more for Budig, who never talked to Christopher or got to know him much before. She always found him a bit mysterious and quiet. But when it was time to work with him intensively on GH, she found more to the actor than what was on the surface. They both found working with one another surprisingly easy, which shows up on-screen:

>> REBECCA:  There is an easiness with Tyler that you don’t get with everybody. I don’t know if he feels the same way. But, I feel very at ease, and that we both want the same things. Oh, and he’s hot, and he’s funny!

TYLER:  I do feel the same way.  I put it this way: at the speed in which we work it’s difficult to try and have fun. That’s why I got into this whole thing to begin with, to have fun. Since we have both been around, between us like 40-plus-years in the business, we know what we’re doing. We spend less time trying to figure out what we want from each other in the scene, and more time having fun. That’s why I love it.

REBECCA:  Right! That’s a very good description. Also, Tyler is smarter than me. It was just weird, because I worked with Cameron Mathison (Ex-Ryan, AMC) for so long, and Josh Duhamel (Ex-Leo, AMC) for so long, so it’s a new leading man for me to work with. I only knew Tyler from ABC Super Soap Weekends, and I never talked to him! <<

Gossip for the week of 23-Nov-2015

Is Jason Thompson (Patrick) having a baby with his newly wedded wife, Paloma? I read somewhere online that he Instagrammed a hint that they’re expecting.

Fans are excitedly talking about a stay of execution for Thompson, based on recent news. He supposedly signed an extension on his contract, which runs out in December, for several more months.

Or did he? On Thompson’s Friday Instagram, he bid a final fond farewell to GH. It also just happened to be his birthday. “It was a long, emotional, exhausting, thrilling at times overwhelming day, and I am so grateful for every one of those moments,” he wrote. “Change can be exciting and scary all at once. Shake it up… See what comes out….”
