Garin Wolf Gives and Interview
excerpt, hit link for full interview:
TV Guide Magazine: What's Garin Wolf all about? How does he plan to move GH forward?
Wolf: I want to make this a nice, easy transition. I want to bring balance to the show. I'm very big on secrets and romance and triangles. I'm a child of Dickens and Doug Marland. I love Dexter and Desperate Housewives. I'm very eclectic. I love to combine a lot of different things, which is what's great about soap operas. I love multi-generational stories. This is an amazing cast and I want to use everybody. I want to mix it up and bring back the entertainment. I want to bring back the reality to the characters' lives. If you're a cop, what is your life really like? Even in the most outrageous storyline, there must be some kind of identifiable emotion. I don't care if we're talking about a mobster or a plumber — you have to watch and say, "I know how he feels. I've been there." And we really need romance. For me, that's all about yearning and obstacles. You have to know who you are rooting for and rooting against. I want to bring back villainy — dishy villainy, fun villainy, dangerous villainy. This is going to date me. My earliest soap opera memory is having a crush on Ann Flood on The Edge of Night when I was 7 years old. And I went from there to Dark Shadows. Growing up, comic books were soap operas for me.
Sounds like HELENA hey? He even mentions Wyndemere! He says all the right stuff, so we shall see if the man can save our GH and bring our stories back to life. I still think he's fake..there are no pics of him LOL. ANYWHERE. I'm going to pretend he's a pen name. "Garin Wolf"... "Karen Coyote" LOL Ryan from Soap Opera Source says he has a photo of him. Hmmmm, we'll see.
OLTL today: OMG Jack making up a fake girl for Shane?? So torn from the headlines!! So sad, and so evil. Who remembers the story about the woman that did that to a girl and she ended up killing herself. Wahhhhh. Shane is smart though!
I wish this would go faster. LOL. I'm so impatient.
GENERAL HOSPITAL: New Liz on...she's Becky's fill in when she got sick. Weird to watch. I think she did a good job!! Got "Liz'" inflections down and everything.
Jason set the warehouse on fire. Okay..
Papa and Johnny Z... same old stuff.
Loved when Jason tried to drink the green tea. LOL... I saw Bob the Badger. Spinelli's shirt looked like it came from the Old Navy Boy's section.
Patrick/Johnny: HOTNESS in a ROOM! wowwowaza.
Kristina had on the dress she's wearing in the airplane photos.
It's kind of funny that Michael was in a coma, jail.. never went to school but got in to PCU. That school must accept EVERYONE!
A few new spoilers on WUBS NET! Carly is beating Maxie by just a bit in the hair race! GO VOTE!
BTW, I haven't mentioned WEINER in here because it's just too easy. All I can say is how stupid do you have to be? Good Lord.
