Meet Maya's Pal, Nick!

NickMaya.jpg

Scott Turner Schofield debuts on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL on Friday, May 8, as Maya's transgender friend, Nick, and he'll continue to recur on the show in the weeks to come.

An activist, playwright and public speaker who has toured the country sharing his own story as a transgender individual, Schofield says the soap role answered a request he'd recently made of the universe. "I knew I wanted to make a career change [and focus on acting], so I asked for abundance," he explains. "I said, 'Let this change be big. I want to be an artist, but I want so many more people to be affected by that.' And, um, I got it! I got one of the biggest audiences on earth!"

Though Schofield has performed to crowds of more than 1,200 people - and reached many more viewers online as a prestigious TED speaker - the actor tells Soaps In Depth he was shaking like a leaf during his B&B audition. "I had the jitters, to say the least," he says. "I left the meeting and thought, 'I blew that, man.' When they later called to offer me the role, my legs lost all functionality. I literally fell to my knees!"

Fortunately, Schofield says his nerves were instantly allayed on his first day of taping when he met Karla Mosley (Maya). "It turns out, we have a very close friend in common, and that put me right at ease," he says. "I knew we were going to be friends from that moment. Right before our first take, I took her hand and said, 'You're participating in my dream coming true.'"

While transgender characters are becoming more prevalent in the entertainment industry, they've predominantly been portrayed by cisgender (that is, not transgender) actors. "It's been one of the transgender community's biggest beefs," says Schofield, noting examples like Jared Leto's character in Dallas Buyer's Club and Felicity Huffman's portrayal in Transamerica. "While I will say those actors have done an astounding job, it's also like, 'Why can't we get a job?'" It's one of the reasons the actor can't say enough about B&B's decision to give him this opportunity. "It's a step forward, one I hope all production companies will take," he says. "There are a lot of us out here that can do great things and are available!"

Spice Girl

MishaelMorgan.jpg Y&R's Mishael Morgan says that her alter ego, Hilary, has always led a dual life, so to speak (presenting a public face that was different than her personal side.) However, it was a lot more confusing to her to play the vixen when she first came on, because Y&R refused to tell her anything about her character's background!

"I was completely blind!" laughs the actress. "I tried to get some stuff out of them, but they never told me anything. But my mother and sisters watched Y&R diligently, and they were like, 'I think you're Rose's daughter!' I jumped into the deep-end of that storyline, and made a choice that I was probably Rose's daughter and I was probably in town for revenge!"

Soaps In Depth caught up with the beauty to talk about the highs and lows of portraying such a complex character. Pick up the magazine for the interview!

All Hail These Queens!

QueensOfDramaGroup.jpg

Move over, housewives, there are some new ladies on the block... and they are here to show you how to bring the drama! In one of the smartest programming moves we've seen in ages, Pop (formerly the TV Guide Network) will air the pilot of their sudsy new reality show, QUEENS OF DRAMA, at 10 p.m. EST on Sunday, April 26th, directly after this year's live telecast of the Daytime Emmy Awards.

So is QUEENS worth sticking around for? Only if you want to see some of your favorite former daytimers butting heads as they attempt to create a whole new soap. Do parts feel wildly scripted? Without doubt. But where else are you going to see Vanessa Marcil (ex-Brenda, GENERAL HOSPITAL) give an epic eyeroll to Donna Mills (ex-Madeline, GH; Abby, KNOTS LANDING) before declaring she feels "completely insulted" and walking out of a meeting?

And that's before DYNASTY's Joan Collins (Alexis) has even made her first appearance.

In short, this is the reality show soap fans have been waiting for. Following Sunday's premiere, QUEENS — which also stars Crystal Hunt (Stacy, ONE LIFE TO LIVE; Lizzie, GUIDING LIGHT), Lindsay Hartley (Cara, ALL MY CHILDREN), Hunter Tylo (ex-Taylor, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) and Chrystee Pharris (Simone, PASSIONS — will air Wednesday nights at 8:00 p.m. ET beginning on April 29th.

TyraBanks.jpg

The Daytime Emmy Awards has a host! Today it was announced that model-turned-mogul Tyra Banks will be emceeing the ceremony when it airs live on Pop on Sunday, April 26, at 8:00 p.m. ET.

"As a network that celebrates talent and personalities who 'pop' in fan culture, we couldn't be more excited to have the multi-talented Tyra Banks as the host of the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards," says Paul Adler, senior vice president, original programming and development, Pop.

Banks has two Daytime Emmys of her own for her talk show THE TYRA BANKS SHOW, and is returning to daytime in the fall of 2015 with a new lifestyle chat show THE FAB LIFE.

"Are you ready to get your Smize on?!!" Banks asks. "I'm honored to be hosting the Daytime Emmy Awards and can't wait to bring a fresh edge and lots of surprises to the show. It's a big year! I'm shaking things up, starting with a new look and a brand-new daytime talk show launching in the fall. I'm pumped to be partnering with a fun, new network like Pop to celebrate daytime TV and the diehard fans that watch every day. Let's do this!"

How Scott Clifton Missed The Emmy Nominations!

ScottClifton.jpg

While everyone else in daytime was celebrating the Daytime Emmy nominations when they were announced on Tuesday, March 31, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Scott Clifton (Liam) was a little late learning he was once again up for Outstanding Supporting Actor!

"I actually didn't find out until a couple days later," he confides, "because I'd been on a camping trip in the woods. I'd even forgotten when the nominations were going to be announced! On my way back down the mountain, my phone picked up a signal and suddenly a barrage of congratulatory texts and voicemails hit me all at once. I couldn't ask for a better, more fun way to find out. What a perfect welcome home surprise!"

Although Clifton has been nominated before for both his work on B&B as well as GENERAL HOSPITAL and ONE LIFE TO LIVE — and taking home two trophies over the years — this year's nod means a lot to the actor. "The episode I submitted this year wasn't a strategic choice," he says, "as it didn't seem to fit any of the usual criteria — it wasn't necessarily the most realistic or emotional or nuanced — it's classic soap, like a choreographed dance.

"It's a performance I'm very proud of," Clifton continues, "and it tells a story about these two men and their relationship that really resonated with me both on the page, thanks to the poetic wisdom of [writer] Patrick Mulcahey and on the screen, thanks to the masterful precision of Darin Brooks (Wyatt). So to be nominated for this is such a reward, and I'm incredibly grateful."

Is Quinn Still Dangerous?

RenaSofer.jpg THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Rena Sofer (Quinn) relishes playing the soap's borderline sociopath, but is there more to this multi-faceted character than simply holding swords to people's throats? The actress certainly thinks so.

"The last thing I want to see is for her to actually murder somebody," says Sofer. "You can only go so far with that. Not that I want to see Quinn become 'good,' or 'nice' in any way, shape or form, but I think she really does strive to be better."

Striving is one thing, but can she really stay on the straight and narrow path, worried as she is about her fiancé Deacon's affiliation with his old flame, Brooke?

"In spite of trying, she is who she is, and she makes mistakes," Sofer coyly notes, "but I'd love to see some people give her the benefit of the doubt, and then maybe she can get into trouble in different ways. It doesn't always have to be about murder — even though she's definitely comfortable with that!"

Find out what else Sofer has to say about Quinn's world, and her own, by picking up the latest issue of Soaps In Depth, on sale now!

B&B's Young Shares His Emmy Nomination

JacobYoungGal.jpg

Jacob Young (Rick, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) had set THE TALK to record so he could see the Daytime Emmy nominations, but he had the news of his own Supporting Actor nod spoiled by Twitter! "My curiosity killed the cat," he admits. "I was happy that I could follow along on Twitter. It's great, because on Twitter, you can see what people say."

And the actor insists that the nod is not just for him. "This nomination is everyone's," he declares. "All the people who worked with me. Everybody's been so fantastic, from John [McCook, Eric] to Thorsten [Kaye, Ridge] to Katherine [Kelly Lang, Brooke], too."

Naturally, Young submitted the episode where Maya dropped the bombshell about Ridge and Caroline to earn the nomination, and plans to submit the same episode for the final judging. "There's no reason to change it," he muses. "Let's go ahead and keep it. I'm happy it was the right episode. It's great to be nominated."

Of course, while actors from B&B can submit two half-hour episodes to equal the submissions from the actors on other soaps, he opted to just go with one. "It's nice to have that option," Young says, "but at the same time, if you don't have to... It's like presenting a sizzle reel — you don't want to bore the audience. Less is more, my friend!"

B&B's Godfrey Will Be At The Emmys!

LinseyGodfreyGall.jpg

Linsey Godfrey (Caroline, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) totally missed the announcement of the Daytime Emmy nominations because she was in physical therapy! "I got a call from [B&B executive producer and headwriter] Brad Bell," she recalls. "And then I got text messages from another producer. I checked my messages really quickly. They said 'Congratulations.'" She laughs and adds, "I said, 'For what?'"

Due to B&B being a half-hour soap, the actors were allowed to submit two episodes to make the same hour as the other shows, so she submitted the scenes where Rick found out that Caroline kissed Ridge. "I wanted to do a different episode, but it aired four days after the cut off!" she laments.

In fact, Godfrey wasn't really involved in what was submitted to the committee, since it occurred just after her accident where she was struck by a car. "I was in the hospital," she reveals. "I felt so bad they had to call and ask. I was not really paying attention. I was just like, 'Oh, I don't care. Just submit what you want!'"

With the ceremony coming up in less than a month, she's already looking at potential gowns, but isn't quite sure how well she'll be able to get around the venue. "I'm trying to figure out if I'm going to be out of these 'moon boots,'" Godfrey says. "I think I'll be out of at least one of them, but I'm hoping I'll be out of both. I don't think I'll be able to wear heels. I'm hoping my gowns are long enough that they cover my feet. But I'll feel so short!"

B&B's Karen "Steals" Brooke's Dad!

DuffyFosters.jpg

Brooke has, ahem, shall we say, "stolen" many men on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL over the years. Well, now, turnabout is fair play! THE FOSTERS executive producer Joanna Johnson, who recurs as Karen on the CBS sudser, has snagged Patrick Duffy (ex-Stephen) to play Robert Quinn, Sr., the father of Callie's biological pop, Robert (played by Kerr Smith, Ryder, AS THE WORLD TURNS) in the drama's season finale.

"I was mesmerized by Patrick's work on B&B," FOSTERS executive producer Johnson tells Soaps In Depth. "He gave this beautiful speech to Katie and did it in one take. He was so good I forgot I was in the scene! When this part came up, I wrote him an E-mail and begged him to come on to the show."

Watch for Robert and Callie to see each other in a new light after Robert's dad visits. "We've alluded to the dynamic that Robert's father had something to do with him leaving Callie's mother," Johnson says. Might the former DALLAS star return for more shows when THE FOSTERS returns for its third season? "We definitely want to bring him back," the exec adds.

The episode in which Duffy appears is titled "The End Of The Beginning," and was written by Johnson and fellow executive producers Bradley Bredeweg and Peter Paige. It airs tonight, March 23, at 8:00 p.m. ET on ABC Family.

Maya's Secret Stuns Soap Fans!

MayaEp.jpg

THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL broke unexpected ground at the end of today's episode when Nicole purported that her sister Maya was born Myron — in other words, that she was her brother! While it was not entirely clear from the cliffhanger's final tag (and the look on Maya's face) whether Nicole had her facts correct, subsequent mainstream media stories have confirmed that B&B is embarking on a soap first by featuring a transgender character as part of its regular cast (though it's not the first to feature a transgender person — ABC's THE CITY once featured a transgender fashion model named Azure and ALL MY CHILDREN introduced a glam rocker named Zarf who identified as a woman.)

One source tells Soaps In Depth that B&B has been working closely in conjunction with GLAAD, the leading advocate for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people, to make sure they tell this upcoming storyline with accuracy and sensitivity. The source also says Karla Mosley (Maya) is absolutely thrilled with the story twist. "Totally not supposed to be tweeting," Mosley posted to her Twitter page following Wednesday's East Coast airing, "but thanks for all the LOVE. So much more to come."

"It is about people respecting other people's differences and their uniqueness," said executive producer and headwriter Bradley Bell in a statement published on USAToday.com. "In the end, we all want to be loved, and in order to love someone else you first have to love yourself. If you are transgender, gay, straight, it doesn't matter. It's about finding love in life. This is a love story."

B&B had been keeping details of this storyline under tighter security than Fort Knox in recent weeks, but following the airing of Wednesday's episodes the Twitterverse exploded with responses that ran the gamut from stunned and excited by the unexpected reveal to bewildered, particularly by the fact that Maya claimed to have had a baby that died after she gave it up. That question, and many more, will presumably be answered in the days and weeks to come!

BettyROCKERS.jpg

We still don't even know the final nominees for the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards (those will be announced on Thursday, March 26), but The National Academy of Television Arts And Sciences has revealed one of the trophies will be given to Betty White (ex-Ann, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL), who will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award!

"Betty White is an American institution," says Bob Mauro, president of NATAS. "Betty's career as a female pioneer has followed television from literally the beginning of the medium, winning her first Emmy Award in 1952, to the digital-streaming future, winning again in 2010. She is one of the most beloved female performers in the history of television and the National Academy is proud to be honoring her with a most well-deserved Lifetime Achievement Award."

You can watch White accept her trophy (along with all the other winners, naturally!) when the Daytime Emmy Awards air Sunday, April 26, at 8:00 p.m. ET on Pop!

Long Live The QUEENS OF DRAMA!

QueensOfDrama.jpg

The new reality series QUEENS OF DRAMA, set to debut on Pop starting Sunday, April 26, at 10:00 p.m. EST (right after The Daytime Emmys!), features a bevy of leading ladies from the world of soaps. Donna Mills (Madeline, GENERAL HOSPITAL; Abby, KNOTS LANDING) headlines the cast, which includes Hunter Tylo (ex-Taylor, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL), Crystal Hunt (Lizzie, GUIDING LIGHT; Stacy, ONE LIFE TO LIVE), Vanessa Marcil (ex-Brenda, GH), and two former PASSIONS stars: Lindsay Hartley (Theresa) and Chrystee Pharris (Simone).

The series features the actresses as they try to form a team that will create and star in its own nighttime series. "We're all strong," Mills tells Soaps In Depth. "The [other women on the show] have been terrific with me, but they're strong. They have their ideas, which is good and it made the show really come alive. You see what they want, what gets in the way of that and how they end up getting what they want."

As KNOTS fans recall, Mills' Abby was a savvy businesswoman who most always got the last laugh. Will we see her express certain "Abby-isms" throughout the show? "It's me, not Abby," clarifies, Mills, then hastens to adds, "There will be more 'Donna-isms.'"

After its premiere, QUEENS OF DRAMA will settle into its regular time slot on Wednesday, April 29 at 8:00 p.m. EST on Pop for its 10 episode run. Check out the following clip below to get a taste of what the show has to offer — and be sure not to miss the appearance of guest Joan Collins (Alexis, DYNASTY; Alexandra, GL)!

After only streaming on the Internet last year, the Daytime Emmys are back on broadcast television! The National Academy Of Television Arts & Sciences has announced that the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will air live on Sunday, April 26, at 8:00 p.m. ET on Pop. They also revealed that the Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards will be held Friday, April 24, at the Universal Hilton in Los Angeles. This year, the Daytime Emmys will be held at the historic Warner Bros. Studio lot on Stage 16, the home to iconic films like Casablanca, Jurassic Park and Ghostbusters.

"Our new partnership with the Pop network is an ideal platform to present our signature gala," said Bob Mauro, President, NATAS. "With the Warner Bros Studios as our venue, where so many great films and television shows have been made, coupled together with Michael Levitt, our executive producer, who created the 'TV Land Awards,' and has produced numerous live event specials including 'The Producers Guild Awards,' 'The Billboard Music Awards,' and 'E! Live from the Red Carpet' shows for the Golden Globes and Oscars®, this promises to be a very special telecast of the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy® Awards."

"As a network that celebrates talent, we are thrilled to bring the Daytime Emmy Awards back to television for the fans," said Brad Schwartz, President of Pop. "Daytime audiences are some of the most amazing and passionate in all of television, and we are proud to honor the greatest works and achievements of daytime. Adding premium live events to our schedule is just another exciting way we are building Pop. We're going to have a lot of fun with this."

Pop, the rebranded TV Guide Network, is also home to the re-airings of episodes of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL and THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, so it's a great place to host the Daytime Emmys. Check your local listings for Pop, and mark your calendars! Are you excited to see the Daytime Emmys back on TV?
