Larson Talks Y&R And First Kiss!

JillLarsonGal.jpg

Jill Larson (Opal, ALL MY CHILDREN) is returning to soaps for a two-day stint on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS beginning Monday, April 14. The actress will play Connie, a stage manager who'll try to keep things running smoothly during Chelsea's fashion show. The gig reunites her with Pine Valley pals Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea, Y&R; Annie, AMC) and Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe, Y&R; Frankie, AMC).

"Connie's in the middle of all the action," Larson tells Soaps In Depth. "It's a real fun role and when it came along, I said, 'Oh, yeah!' I'm in touch with [Y&R headwriter] Jean Passanante via E-mail, so maybe that's what triggered the idea."

Larson's getting buzz not only for her upcoming Y&R gig, but also for her appearance in the short film First Kiss, which was directed by Tatia Pilieva. Larson was one of 20 artists cast in the indie project, which captures a series of first kisses among strangers.

"I met a man who was working for the clothing company [providing outfits for the film]," Larson recalls. "We got to talking, and I kept looking around wondering who did they call in for me to kiss? Then, I realized it was him! It was very sweet."

First Kiss has gone viral on the Web. Why? Larson believes it's because the film touches on the universal themes, fears and joys that are related to locking lips. "Sometimes when you kiss someone for the first time, you think, 'Do I like this person?' 'Should I get out now?' 'Are we going upstairs?''Do I like him?' 'Does he like me?' 'What are our children going to look like?'" she muses. "The film resonates with people because of its tenderness. It expresses things that we all feel, but don't have the courage to say anymore."

DAYS' Stefano Gets A New Henchman!

As far as DAYS OF OUR LIVES' Stefano is concerned, "bad" help is good to find. Actor Tom Lind makes his debut in Salem on Thursday, March 13, as Galen, The Phoenix's latest henchman. Watch for the performer to appear in scenes with both Joseph Mascolo (Stefano) and Deidre Hall (Marlena). "It was a lot of fun," says Lind, who reveals that he's not often cast as the heavy. "I was in a hair and makeup chair at DAYS and someone who works there said to me, 'Are you sure you're Galen? You seem too nice to be the bad guy.' So I gave him a scowl!'"

The role was likely named after DAYS' Galen Gering (Rafe), which led to a little confusion on Lind's part. "They called for 'Galen' over the loudspeaker, so I went up to the set and the stage manager said, 'No, sweetie, that's not you. That's the name of one of our actors!'

"Both Deidre and Joe were fantastic," Lind adds. "I actually met Joe in the hallway, and we started chatting before we met on set. He was great, and Deidre asked me to take a 'selfie.' I couldn't have asked for two nicer pros to work with! Both of them were super-sweet!"
