Just recently, the Days cast had a much-needed two-week break. The week prior, I taped six episodes, and the week prior to that, I taped five episodes. Also known as, "Hell Week."
Not just because my scenes had a lot of dialogue, but also because they were emotionally demanding and required a lot of focus to put a character in the shoes of a teen father. You see, Chad finally finds out about the baby... yes I know, I know.... it's been long overdue, but soon you'll get to see Chad's true colors after finding out Mia's secret.
In case you were wondering, the United States has the highest teen pregnancy rate, and has reported 745,000 teen pregnancies each year! That's a random, but alarming fact of the day for you. Even though I'm not a teen father, I still got to experience a small taste of it. Being a teen father is one thing, but being a teen father and not knowing about it is another. So when that bomb does get dropped on Chad, he has so many things going through his mind at once, he's putting the pieces to the puzzle together, he's understanding why she's been acting the way she has towards him. I don't think any teenager is really prepared for that kind of news, and most may think it won't happen to them, but trust me it does. I feel extremely blessed to be able to play this character, I get to experience things I never would in real life. During those two weeks of constant taping I learned a lot about myself, about my character, and the actors I work with. I had some amazing scenes with Taylor, Ari, James, and Alison. They are fantastic to work with... DOOL fans are in for a treat!
During the break you can guess I slept a lot. Recovering from my hectic schedule. LOL! Molly and I went to the Emmys and had a blast!!! I was so stoked to see DOOL win some Emmys. Molly looked so beautiful, she really did, and I felt so lucky to be there with her.
We also went to the beach with friends. Molly and I were being taught how to skim board, but that mission was a failure. Seriously, it has got to be the most difficult sport in the world... mad props to the kids that can pull that off!
Alright, everyone, thanks so much for taking the time to read what I have to say, you all have been so awesome!!! If you have a Twitter, follow Molly and I :) @scusecaseyd @mollydollyy
