it great she let us in on behind the scenes stuff

she also added this to her fb


Alison Sweeney
i was so exhausted after filming these scenes. I was shooting the BL Finale at the same time, so it was a pretty intense, busy time for me, and i didn't get to see all the other scenes. I came home tonight from BL at 10:15pm, & had to watch today's ep. it was so amazing to see the whole show. Ari was fantastic. Taylor (mia) and Dylan (will) were wonderful. & Galen truly blew me away. Broke my heart.
Thanks. This confirms what I thought. The scenes outside the ICU room were taped different day when Ali wasnīt available and thatīs why we never saw her come out and have scene with Lucas, Mia, or anyone outside.
And that just pisses me off. They put her in a huge story like this knowing she won't be available...I'm tired of this show revolving around her. I'm still angry about them editing her in to Grandpa Shawn's wake last year. This whole stupid story started because she got pregnant. I kept saying there was something off, and besides the lack of family, there was! She wasn't even there! That's why those scenes seemed so odd! Gah!
You are funny. Scheduling the taping aroung actors avaibility is nothing unordinary. And Alison is THE star of the show now, most recognizable, popular even outside soap world, very open and communicative with both media and the fans and loved by the network. No wonder they are more accommodating to her than some newbie.

But still, the show tapes out of sequence a lot lately so this was not just because of her. And itīs not like there was some major moment missing, the only reason I even noticed it was someone complaining we never saw Lucas have a moment with her.
Schedule around them. Fine. Makes sense. But we've been saying since these scenes started that something seemed off, and now I'm pretty sure that it was the way it was filmed. They film out of sequence all the time. I know that. But to notice that something just isn't right...well, IMO there were already going to be problems with this story because of certain characters being off the show. Then to add to it by having to keep Alison seperated from the rest of the cast - I kept asking where her support was. They were filming on a seperate day! It took away from the emotional impact, IMO. I feel like scheduling around someone and revolving around someone are two different things. It's not necessarily AS's fault. I just wish they'd thought through that better.

As for Alison being the star - it sort of seems that way. Ari's on more than she is, though and has been now for almost a year. Ari talks to the magazines more, too.
