Members Lone Palm Posted September 26, 2008 Members Share Posted September 26, 2008 Kiss between Jake & Taylor on 'All My Children' put on hold By CAROLYN HINSEY Friday, September 26th 2008, 4:00 AM Ricky Paull Goldin isn't in a rush to recreate his 'Guiding Light' relationship with Beth Ehlers on 'All My Children.' "All My Children" star Ricky Paull Goldin (Jake) reveals that a key scene between Jake and Taylor set to air next week was rewritten at the last minute. "We were scripted to kiss, but we all decided that it felt a bit rushed," says Goldin. "So we didn't actually touch lips." Fans know that "AMC" scooped up Goldin and Beth Ehlers (Taylor) from their former soap ("Guiding Light") after negotiations went south. The two, who played popular supercouple Gus and Harley, have been slowly integrated into "AMC," where they will soon become a couple as well. "We reblocked the scene," says Goldin. "I take her hand and end up slow-dancing with her. You can't force this stuff down people's throats." The tender scene between the jaded doctor (him) and the even more jaded Iraq war veteran (her) comes after an awkward encounter involving Jake's current girlfriend, Amanda, who is also Taylor's roommate. "Taylor lost her man in Iraq," explains Goldin. "She still has his jacket, but Amanda does not know that. She puts it on, gets a whip, puts on high heels, calls Jake over for an 'emergency' and seduces him. In the middle of them having sex, Taylor walks in and sees Amanda straddling Jake wearing her dead fiance's coat. She flips out and storms off." Jake goes after her. "He admits in this episode, 'I'm interested in you when you let your guard down.' She says, 'No, you're not. You don't want a broken soldier. You want boobs and cleavage.' Jake says, 'You're not paying attention. I think you're amazing.' That's the first connection they have." Despite the lack of a liplock, it won't be the last. "The whole story is about to take off," says Goldin. Entire Article Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
