On Air On Soap'Michael Fairman dished with One Life To Live dynamo Florencia Lozano on what viewers can expect to see with her alter ego Tea's drama involving daughter Danielle and Todd (Trevor St. John).
MICHAEL: So, right now Danielle hates her mother and her father. What do you think we can look forward to? Any resolution?
FLORENCIA: She is a teenager, and for a couple years there, it’s really a true test of faith. Adolescence, if you remember, (I vaguely do) it’s a really hard time. Mothers often times get the brunt of that, especially with daughters. There is a lot of separating from the mother yet wanting to stay merged with the mother. In our case, she is about to find out her father is not who she thought he was. So we are definitely going to have a struggle. But I would hope our love would win out.
Lozano also gives a clue as to why her character is holding back on Todd filling Dani in on who her real father is.
MICHAEL: You are still telling Todd not to reveal himself to Danielle. Why?
FLORENCIA: Initially, it came out in a very unhelpful way in the hotel room in Seattle and Danielle was not able to process it. Tea screwed this up so badly on so many different levels! She screwed Ross up. He was a good guy, and he thought he was her father and he ripped her out of his world. I hurt Danielle and Todd a lot. So now, Téa is trying to do things the right way, which would not be just sort of saying, to Danielle, “Hey, this is your dad.” She wants to find someway to connect with her daughter and get some trust going with her before she just drops it on her.
