SONBC INTERVIEWS ROSCOE BORN
SONBC- Well welcome back Roscoe!!! What is this, the 18th daytime serial you've been cast in?
Roscoe Born- Actually, Santa Barbara was my 2nd soap originally, I was on Ryan's Hope prior to being cast on SB.
SONBC- But this is 'RTSB.' It's not your mother's 'Santa Barbara.'
Roscoe Born- My mother actually was more of a P&G soap fan- As The World Turns and Guiding Light were her favorites. But I know what you mean. However, the writing is brilliant, there are surprises abound and I get to work with the incomparable Marcy Walker again.
SONBC- Yes, but for how long.
Roscoe Born- Well, you know how Greg operates. I'm not at liberty to say. What I can tell you is that the late start is all Marcy's fault.
SONBC- Trouble in paradise? On set difficulties already?"
Roscoe Born- Nothing like that. She had prior commitments to her church that Greg graciously agreed to work around. He considered an emergency recast, but in the end, the decision was made to delay the premiere and the shooting of the premiere until Marcy was available. Shooting has been a bit hectic, working around her church schedule but everyone at 'RTSB' agrees that accommodating that request in order to have Marcy is well worth it.
SONBC- So can you give us a definite premiere date? Are you gonna be around a while?
Roscoe Born- The answer to both of those questions is this- stay tuned!!!
SONBC- You have to give us something Roscoe, more than that.
Roscoe Born- I've been lucky enough to receive 'Special Guest Star' billing. I've been told we'll be on air sometime in August, but that remains to be seen. But I can tell you Marcy started shooting this week and you're not gonna want to miss a minute!
