INTERVIEW: Thom Racina on The New OLTL, Ice Princess Revisited and His Love and Hate For Daytime Confidential



 


DC: General Hospital, which is where you got your start in the whole soap game, revisited your Ice Princess storyline.

TR: You know, it just amazes me. Somebody sent me a clip on Valentine's Day of Luke and Laura discovering the box with the Ice Princess thing and I couldn't believe it. I said, "After all these years, they're doing that again?" and yet, it made me feel really proud.

DC: It came from your novel?

TR: Yes, it came from The Great Los Angeles Blizzard about snow on Los Angeles, and we just made it snow on Port Charles.

DC: Nice, well listen, you have a great night and we'll try not to get y'all in any more trouble!

TR: Please don't. We've had enough of that! [Laughs]

@harlee490, Thom was very tongue and cheek about the "hate" thing, it was all in good fun. I hope that came across in the interview. Sometimes audio works best, so you can hear someone's tone of voice. He was a gem to talk to!

Just watched AMC & OLTL rocked. They have a primetime feel & I love it. Kelly Missal is killing it as high Dani. I watched parts of OLTL on ABC and this girl was barely used despite being a strong performer. Can someone tell me why RC & FV are so fascinated by Alderson because I tried and tried and I dont see it at all. I would have preferred to see this one on GH when the livers moved. Loved seeing Victor/Trevor St John at the end.

Jamey love your interviews and your the heart and soul of daytime soaps....my wish for u is to write a book about the industry and then get a cable series about the behind the scenes drama of many soaps, the drama behind the camera better than what on tv..... Nice job:)

I for one hope you keep on doing whatcha doing - exactly those kinds of reactions like "How DARE they say that" means that you are doing things right, you are on to something. There's just too many secrets in the soap world that just ache to be exposed Wink

Lisa M. : "Can someone tell me why RC & FV are so fascinated by Alderson because I tried and tried and I dont see it at all. I would have preferred to see this one on GH when the livers moved"

KA - along with and in relation to RH- is iconic in her own right having worked o the show since she she was ... realllly young.... I think that the RH /KA ( or maybe Todd/Starr) combo was smart addition to Gh , since it gave them a family dynamic tp play up and off of. Adding ME's McBain also gave Todd some backstory and contrast that supported his presence on the show ( good guy/bad guy). KM is indeed a good young actress but she has a stronger rapport/history with FL/Tea than she does/did with Todd... Though I guess they'll be building that up (along with her relationship with Victor ) now on OLTL 2.0...
