Daytime Royalty Interview with Mary Beth Evans

Kayla has some stuff coming up this week!
I heard you talking about that, and it was like five or six months ago. I will say that I feel really bad that I spill the beans about his dad because I would never do that in my real life. I would take it to my grave, and I feel bad that it slipped out. I love my nephew, and I wouldnít want to hurt him. I do feel like that. I just feel like itís such a bummer that that happened.

How much are you actually involved?
I think Iím in and out.

Is it going to be where you tell him, and then thatís it for you?
No, no. Iím around, and the family is around. The family is all kind of involved, and we all kind of rally around him and Jennifer. I have a really bad memory, so as far as how many days, I donít know. But I was working a lot during that time. Weíre always scrambling to memorize. Itís always just barely memorized, and then you just let it go as soon as itís over. Thereís so many stresses about getting through it because we only do one take, so you memorize it so fast that itís very stressful. So I think once you walk out the door, you donít really look back. So when people ask you about the stories, it all just kind of blends together.

Does Kayla have anything else coming up?
No. Thereís this little scuffle. And then thereís like getting Rafe out of the hospital. So thatís down the road. I just had the last month off which was good. I went and did an ABC Family show thatís coming up, so thatís exciting. I got recurring on that. Iíve been out there busy. Itís called Chasing Life. So at least Iíve been doing something with my life.

We saw that the boy who played Joey was back on set for Christmas this year.
Do you know who he is? Heís Dexterís son! Isnít that crazy? Itís funny because he told me his hair was dyed blond from his last show, and then my husband and I were watching Dexter, and I was like, ďI think thatís my baby Joey!Ē We looked him up on imdb, and it is him. His mother is so beautiful.

Did you know his father was on Days? He played Sami when she was a man.
Oh, I donít know anything about that. Well, the mother is stunning. All of the mothers of the kids are just beautiful. Theyíll be on the sidelines when weíre filming, and I always think theyíre much better looking than us mothers over here.

Are they going to acknowledge him this year? Last year they never even said who he was.
Yeah. At least they finally cast him. And heís adorable, so I hope they do play him more. Heís definitely standing with me, and I kind of push him along to go listen to the Christmas story. But you know, none of us has a say in anything that our characters say. We just get our scripts. But we all love it there, so we just love having something to do.

Will you be working again any time soon?
I go back in a week, but theyíve had a lot of time off lately, too. Itís been a nice break this time because I had something to do. Sometimes you have nothing to do, and youíre like...ĒIíll plant a garden or something.Ē

Is there anything else youíd like to tell us about?
Everyone should get involved in CASA. Court Appointed Special Advocate. Everyone should do it. Thereís 125,000 foster kids in LA County, and you can go be a special advocate and get some stuff done for them. So thatís my pitch.

Of course I'd like to see more Kayla but I'm excited to check out her new ABC fam gig.

Well, I'm happy she's in this story! She says the family rallies around, and that's great! And Casey said it's NOT about Daniel and that he's not part of it, so YAY there!

Did you see that part about a scuffle? Kayla in a scuffle? I'm very curious about that. Mary Beth goes back to work in a week, and I'm hoping sooner or later they'll break down and give Kayla a life. I love her with Steve, but they are divorced, and I'd like to see her date...a blind date, I tell you. Could be fun if it was like, the worst blind date ever!

Eventually I want Steve back for her though. I just don't want her standing still in her personal life, waiting.

The "scuffle" is the stuff with JJ.

Yay, I guess. Glad to hear she's working but it doesn't sound all that promising.

Oh, you mean no personal life yet?

I know.

It's been long enough. I think it has. I'm ready for her to date. She needs to stick her feet in the water of the dating pool.

No, but I want to. I wonder if they have anything on abcfamily about that yet?

Sounds like it's about a young career woman with a cancer diagnosis... more Dr. Kayla?

I checked the imdb.com. I didn't see her listed in the credits...but maybe she's not in the first episode, since she's only recurring?

You went to abcfamily.com?

Did you see her there?

That's just ridiculous. This insane 4 month lead on the taping schedule and the budget being so tight that they can't reshoot a scene if an actor flubs it is just ridiculous. How can anyone think that this is a good idea? In so many recent interviews that I've read, nearly all of the actors are unable to say what's coming up--not because of spoilers but because they really don't remember. The actors can't even promote these storylines because it's all running together and they're letting it go as soon as they shoot it so that they can start on the next day's junk. I wouldn't even know what I shot that day, let alone 4 months ago.

Well, to be fair, part of that is just Mary Beth. She really does have an awful memory.

Yeah, she always says that she has a bad memory...and that probably is made worse because of the lag between what they film and what airs. They do have to do several shows in one day sometimes.

lol, that makes me feel a little better, but still. So many people are straight up "I don't remember!" It's almost comical.

This also means they don't watch.
