Tristan Talking Night Shift!
Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio, General Hospital / Night Shift) is talking Night Shift on his blog. It's an interesting look as to where Robert Scorpio is heading.
My first show was an introduction. From here on in it gets gritty. Maybe a little to real. I have just shot some scenes which were quite disturbing for me, so I can't gauge how the public are going to deal with them. We are looking at the mortality of what, till now, has been an iconic hero. What's approaching will alter some of that.
Some people are qoing to feel quite uneasy at the upcomming material. I can't remember a person in daytime, much less any other time, ever putting themselves in the pathway of reality quite like we have here.
I think it's quite unique. How it will be percieved, I have no opinion on right now.
There's no question NS is breaking some interesting story. It may in fact be a first. But soap stories don't usually confront issues like this with characters like me. I cannot imagine Gloria ever allowing something like this to take place on her watch.
But the challenge, as an actor, was just plain undeniable. And I am for it.
We'll talk further as it develops.
