so this is from Alison Sweeney's blog-

Farah's first day!

I don't know if you all know, but Farah (ex-Mimi) just started on One Life To Live. We are all so excited for her, and at Martha's (Belle) real-life wedding last month I sat next to Farah and she was telling me about moving to NYC, and the new character etc.

Side note, we quickly became infamous at the wedding for being 'table 16' since we shouted it and were a loud, raucous group. And I hold Bryan (Lucas) and Kyle Brandt totally responsible for being troublemakers. Darrin (Max), Rachel (Chelsea), Farah, her sister, Dave and I were just innocent by-standers. we were definitely not part of the commotion!

Anyway, knowing that Farah's first day was approaching, Margie, who used to do Farah's hair at days and also does my hair, and Martha's, was talking about sending Farah a little care-package of some of her old stuff from Days. Including this hilarious knit cap with hair extentions sewn in. a few years back, Farah had cut her long hair off, thinking there was a 'new day' in Salem, and she could just have a new hair style. Well, she showed up for work to an unpleasant surprise... and the only solution was to keep her in a the cap, for way too long until she could show off her cute new cut.

So, Martha and I got to thinking... let's surprise her with it! So I called over to the OLTL hair dept, and we got them onboard to pull out the knit cap, as she sits down in the chair for her first day of work! Martha, and I and everyone in the make-up room were just dying thinking about her reaction. And the only weak point to our plan was that we wouldn't get to see the expression on her face! So, we called in a favor at Soap Opera Digest!!! SOD to the rescue!! They helped us concoct a story that they were doing a web interview of her first day. So, their cameras were rolling as she gets presented with the infamous knit cap. and a video montage from her Days family wishing her good luck at her new show. (during which Bryan is wearing her knit cap! lol. the whole thing just went perfectly!)

I think SOD.com is posting the footage this week sometime, so you have to go check it out. Martha and I haven't seen it yet either!

back to work!



and this is the video from soap opera digest-

Farah really should only be a supporting character and funny friend because she can't do emotional scenes very well. I only started hating her hardcore when JER moved her from Belle's friends to front-burner, let's-get-her-a-mom-and-two-brothers character.

That was cute! LOL! I think I'm the only one who like Farrah...*DUCKS* I remember when Mimi was a mermaid and she ripped off Chloe's hair.

Nah, u may be one of the few on this board but not the only one by all means. I think Farah is a good actress and will be a great addition to OLTL, the cast and crew already seem to like her. I can't wait until her debut day, OCTOBER 24th!!

Here is her new blog talking about her first week on the set of OLTL. :)


My first week taping...

Well I'm pooped. :-D I just taped 11 episodes in 4 days. I've never done that many in a week before. My first day was last Friday (the 5th) and I only did half a show that day. So now that I've worked there for 5 days I feel like I've experienced enough to share how my new job is going. Which is...GREAT! I'm almost a bit blown away at how nice everyone is! The welcome I have recieved is beyond warm. I would say scolding hot. The cast and crew at "One Live to Live" are amazing. I just have to get that out there! Even though I had so much material this week it was a blast. Erika Slezak is ridiculous! In a good way!!!!! I've never met an actor who is so on the ball. She doesn't even so much as glance at her script and every take she's in, she nails. It's been such an honor to work with her. I'm just trying to keep up!

As for my character, "Gigi"...she's a lot of fun to play. I will go ahead and say she's similar to "Mimi" in the sense they're both funny. "Gigi" doesn't have the insecurities that "Meems" had though. She's much stronger. I'm trying hard to play them differently but it's tough 'cause they're written a bit alike. My storyline is great. There's a lot of mystery surrounding "Gigi". I can't wait to see how everything pans out :-P

As for living in New York...I'm loving it! It's so different than anything I'm used to. There's so much to look at and so many places to go. And I tackled one of my greatest fears...learning the subway!

Last but not least I would just like to thank Alison Sweeney for making my first day at work extra special! She made a tape for me and had all the "Days" cast & crew on it wishing me luck! I was shocked...it was SO thoughtful! But first she kind of "punked" me...you can see the prank on www.soapoperadigest.com

Were only a week and half away!! yay!
