October 11, 2007 - Thursday

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!
Love,
Farah

Wait, so she mentioned not one DAMN thing about John's death?! Drake's apparent firing?!

What a cold and selfish bitch! She was once part of the "Days" family!

This is unacceptable. And we can't pretend like she didn't know about it. .

Get your priorities straight, girl!

It's very possible she didn't know about it. :shrug:

Okay, I gotta give her props for admiring the vet and work ethic of Erica Slezak. That was classy.

And OMG, are you kidding me? HEr character's name is "Gigi"?!! Um, Mimi much?! FRONS, YOU SUCK! You're a copycatting bastard.

NO ONE can convince me that character wasn't named to sound like "Mimi" and grab "Days" fans.

I really find that hard to believe. Sorry, but I honestly do. And wasn't she at the Martha wedding? (Correct me if I'm wrong, I really can't remember.) If that's true, and she was at MM's wedding, surely they gossiped about it then.

She wouldn't mention it because it was not the place to do so. She's talking about her first week, her living in New York, and missing people from LA. She's not going to go into some "How dare they fire Drake" tirade. I'm sure she has her own feelings on the matter that are private. She'd be stupid to burn her bridges by blasting Days.

Maybe it's because of the "Sarah Silverman Program" episode on Wednesday (you had to see it), but it reminds me of bestiality. :unsure:

I wasn't looking for outrage. Just an "Oh, so you guys must have heard by now" sort of thing.

Just a looking-back, a tribute to Drake. Two lines. That's all I'm asking for. And I agree that it may not have fit in with the rhythm and flow of the quoted entry. But that's why a person has the freedom to choose to make one entry or two entries or three entries.

But let's face it, she knows most of the fans reading her site came from "Days" so it's not like she's going "OT" on them with a Drake tribute.

Just something that shows she has a heart, that's all I'm asking for.

For the love of all the blog wasn't about DAYS it was about her first week. She's not on the show anymore and she is distancing herself from it to get her fans to watch OLTL.

I want to mention a rumor going around right now about Farah's character. There has been much speculation about which couple 'Gigi' was going to come between. There is some talk that since Kathy Brier is leaving OLTL Farah's going to be paired up with Michael McBain (Nathanial Marston). As of right now I can't picture those two together.

Glad FF is liking OLTL. I love ES and I appreciate her applause of her. ES is the kind of actor young actors can learn much from and be inspired by.

OLTL just got a bit more interesting. If the rumor is true, NM may be a bit more watchable. I rooted for Marci and John simply because they were an improbable sometimes sweet couple but KB is hard to take, for me, other than in very short doses. No tears will fall from my eyes when she exits for the Great White Way.

Thanks for the blog content Jonatha!

This is very telling IMO The soaps must be on overdrive preparing for the writers strike.
