Before he was making a splash shaking what his mama mum gave him on ABC's Dancing With The Stars, Aiden Turner was going from hero to zero as All My Children's unlucky-in-love Aidan Devane. In an interview with We Love Soaps, Turner reveals how his soaptastic past helps him on DWTS.
We Love Soaps: What lessons did you learn from your time on ALL MY CHILDREN that you can apply now?
Aiden Turner: The lesson I learned from ALL MY CHILDREN that I can apply to DANCING WITH THE STARS is dealing with the grueling schedule of working on a soap - working all day at the studio, learning a new script at night, then going in the next day and doing it for the cameras. That's a great lesson I took from ALL MY CHILDREN that I'm using here. Whether you're tired or sick or injured, you just keep going. You keep working at it. You get out of something what you put into it. The harder you work, the better you are as a person.
