TVG: If it wasn’t for you and Jessica, I doubt I would have watched GL at all this past year. You made the show bearable. I know The Young and the Restless was your first choice post-GL, and they wanted you, but unfortunately they have an abundance of actresses in your age range. I have to admit I was a tad surprised you didn’t parlay your buzz factor and unbelievable talent to the big screen or prime time.

CC: It’s not out of the picture at this point! [Laughs] Gary Tomlin is a friend of mine. To be honest with you, DAYS wasn’t even on my radar at that point. But I’m glad I made the decision to join DAYS. I’m so happy to be a part of DAYS and it’s a really comfortable place for me to be at. DAYS has been unbelievably accommodating when it comes to my web series. DAYS is also dark 15 weeks out of the year, so that allows me to do other projects. We’ll see what happens. I feel very lucky these days because there aren’t a lot of parts for women my age. And fun parts, for that matter. And Carly is fun!
