WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 30, 2007 EDITION
THE WRITER'S CORNER
THIS WEEK MARKS THE THIRD EDITION OF THE WEEKLY SL INSIDER FEATURE, "THE WRITER'S CORNER." EACH WEEK I, TIM LOWERY (BETTER KNOWN AS PHOENIXRISING05), AND MY FELLOW SALEM LIVES HEAD WRITER, PATRICK L. EWING (BETTER KNOWN AS ROMAN), WILL TAKE TIME OUT TO ANSWER QUESTIONS FROM READERS AND ANYONE ELSE THAT DECIDES TO CHECK OUR FAN FICTION BLOG OUT. WE WILL TAKE TURNS ANSWERING QUESTIONS EACH WEEK. THESE QUESTIONS CAN BE QUESTIONS ABOUT CASTING, WRITING, PAST STORIES, CURRENT STORIES, OR WHATEVER COMES TO MIND REALLY PERTAINING TO SALEM LIVES. PLEASE REMEMBER TO PM US QUESTIONS DURING THE WEEK FOR US TO ANSWER AND ALSO REMEMBER YOU CAN POST QUESTIONS VIA COMMENTING HERE IN THE BLOG. IF WE RECEIVE NO QUESTIONS, ROMAN AND I WILL JUST ANSWER QUESTIONS BASED ON REACTIONS TO EPISODES AND DISCUSSIONS WE HAVE HAD WITH OTHERS. SO, WITHOUT FURTHER ADIEU, HERE WE GO:
THIS WEEK'S WRITER IN THE HOT SHEET: TIM LOWERY (PHOENIXRISING05)
1.) What is the deal with this Midwestern rapist/killer? This criminal has been mentioned quite a bit of late. Will it be part of a story coming up?
Tim Lowery: It's already part of a story but you won't get anymore out of me then that (laughs). Just keep reading and you will see what I mean.
2.) Are we going to see Marlena getting a visit from her sister, Samantha?
Tim Lowery: No. There will be no ghosts. We don't do that. You will see Marlena coming to terms with Sam's death and so many of the other traumatic events in her life. There won't be any supernatural tilts to this at all.
3.) It's great to see Sami back but when will she be escaping and coming home?
Tim Lowery: Can't say. This isn't Spoilers R Us (laughs). All I can say is keep reading because there are some big twists in her story coming.
4.) What is the deal with Steve and Hope? I get that they bonded while at Maison Blanche together but are they going to be a couple?
Tim Lowery: Wait and see. We will be exploring their past in detail but, as to what will happen in the present, there are big things coming and we hope everyone will be pleased.
5.) I love the new format. Will there be any other new features and how do you come up with those episode titles? Will they continue?
Tim Lowery: There will be other features. We recently started using location pictures again and there may be more style changes. We are glad you like the changes thus far. It's just a way of making it easier to read. The episode names are usually reflective of an episodes theme or something big that happens in the episode. They will continue for as long as we can come up with them. We think they add a nice feel to the episodes. Very prime time-like.
WELL, THAT IS ALL FOR NEXT WEEK. REMEMBER TO PM QUESTIONS TO BE ANSWERED IN THE WRITER'S CORNER TO ME OR ROMAN BY NEXT FRIDAY AT 8PM EST. ALSO, YOU MAY POST QUESTIONS HERE IN THE BLOG BY COMMENTING. JUST DO IT BEFORE FRIDAY AT 8PM. THANKS AND WE'LL SEE YOU NEXT WEEK IN THE WRITER'S CORNER WHERE ROMAN WILL BE ANSWERING YOUR QUESTIONS. UNTIL NEXT TIME!!!
SL SHOCKER: GLORIA LORING RETURNS!!
SALEM LIVES fans got the shock of their lives in Friday's episode when Tony learned that another Dimera child is out there...and that his ex-wife, Liz Curtis, can give him the rest of the answers he seeks. Yep, folks, that's right. Gloria Loring is returning to the role of Liz Curtis after more than a 20 year absence. The actress, who last appeared in 1986 when Liz left Salem to do a movie, will return for a limited run in October.
"We are so happy to have her returning," enthuses EP/HW Tim Lowery. "We couldn't do this story the right way without her. She is a wonderful talent and our fans love when we use history and bring characters from the past back into the fold. It's great because she is very involved and has a big purpose in this huge story we are doing. It's not just a cameo and it may lead to more appearance by her."
As for a possible Neil Curtis appearance, Lowery is mum. "Anything is possible and we do have some irons in the fire," says Lowery. "I can't say anymore then that. Just keep tuning in to find out." Expect Loring to first air in mid-October.
