INTERVIEW: All My Children’s Thorsten Kaye Talks The Life of an Actor


With a commanding, virile presence, matched by the type of booming, thunderous voice you'd imagine Zeus utilizing on Mount Olympus, Thorsten Kaye could easily come off as intimidating, that is, if he wasn't so good natured. I was able to ask the All My Children star a few, quick questions on the red carpet before the premiere of the rebooted sudser and its sister soap One Life to Live.

With Kendall (Alicia Minshew) and Zach on the outs, what is in store for the casino mogul romantically? How will Minshew's upcoming guest spot as Kendall impact things? How did the actor, who went on to do NBC's Smash following AMC's cancellation on ABC Daytime, react to the news that the soap was coming back? We touched on all of those subjects. I also asked the popular star if his real-life leading lady Susan Haskell will ever reprise her historic role as OLTL's Marty Saybrooke.


Daytime Confidential: How are you feeling?

Thorsten Kaye: I'm feeling good. I think these guys [Prospect Park] did a good job. How are you feeling? What are you looking for?

DC: I'm excited. I'm really excited. I was skeptical at first, but now it's finally happening. I have to ask, what's going to be in store for Zach romantically?
