Eva LaRue (ex-Maria, All My Children) just scored a guest Emmy nod for her role as Celeste Rosales on The Young and the Restless. She spoke to Digital Journal about her time on the CBS sudser and remembering ex-husband John Callahan (ex-Edmund, AMC).
My favorite part of The Young and The Restless experience included working with Peter Bergman, and so many new people. Peter and I have been friends for 30 years but we never worked together so that was amazing. Michelle Stafford has been a friend for ages too so it was a blast working with her. I just love Michelle. It was a fun storyline and I loved the character, and working with Sasha Calle and Michael Mealor. It was a great experience all around. They are all such good actors.
Since losing Callahan, LaRue has appreciated support from the daytime community. She added:
The fans have been so amazing in the last two months since John passed, and so has the whole soap opera community. I heard from actors in every single soap opera. They have been phenomenal. The soap opera community is a family that doesn't go away. We are a small group of actors that have moved around to other shows, and we realize how important the family of soaps that are left is.
