What Will It Take To Win A Role On GH?
Tuesday, October 26, 2004
When I WANNA BE A SOAP STAR, SOAPnet's reality contest, premieres on Saturday October 16, judging panel will consist of talent manager Michael Bruno, actress Debbi Morgan (ex-Angie, ALL MY CHILDREN; Ellen, PC) and GH casting director Mark Teschner, on whose show the winner will be awarded 1 13 week role. From the triad, can viwers expect Simon/Paula/Randy-type headbutting? "We don't agree all the time, but we agree a surprizing amount of the time," Teschner tells us. "The three points of view provide an interesting balance: Debbi really makes it about the actor's process, Michael looks at the 'big picture,' the total package, and I am a combination of the two. It's a very interesting dynamic."
What type of criticism does Teschner lob at the WANNA BEs? "My common theme - one that I have had through my whole casting career - is, 'It's not enough to have a great look.' It's what's behind the look, and the work, that creates what's important."
