On the current storyline...

“I am coming into this as a totally new, fresh character. I am not even involved, quite honestly, with knowing what is going on with [Victor (Eric Braeden)]. I just greet them as I see them as my character meets them.”

“I’m playing a modern day nun—blue jeans and shirts—who works at a mission in a water-front area  helping homeless people, [and] people who seem to be in trouble. Helping them kind of pull it together so they can move forward.”

“I find this man, [Victor], is in trouble and I try to help him. And I don’t trust this woman, [Genevieve (Genie Francis)], that I meet.”
