Longmire’s Bailey Chase on How As The World Turns Stint Was Acting ‘Boot Camp’

Who says daytime dramas are a cakewalk? Longmire star and  As The World Turns alum Bailey Chase (ex-Chris Hughes) spoke with Assignment X on the rigorous shooting demands of his hit A&E series. Chase revealed to the site how starring on the now defunct sudser helped him prepare for primetime.

AX: You were on AS THE WORLD TURNS from 2003-2004. A lot of actors say that acting on soaps is the hardest acting work there is.

CHASE: I feel like – for me and probably for most actors – it’s boot camp, at least in the beginning. It was a great training ground for me, I logged a lot of hours in front of the camera and at that point, I felt a real growth, like I got over myself a little bit, my vanity and things like that. It’s about just showing up and the work. I feel like at that point, by the time I was done with that, it was like, “Okay, I’m a professional actor, this is what I do” [laughs]. And I felt like I earned it at that point. It’s hard doing daytime because of the demands. And I think that’s why the finished product suffers a little bit, because there’s never any time.
