Soaps In Depth

Published June 10, 2001

While many daytime actors keep a close eye out for a project to do on the side, Thorsten Kaye (Ian) isn't one of them. It's not that the thespian doesn't welcome opportunities to practice his craft, it's the effort it takes to get them that he opposes. "I don't like auditioning for things," he admits, "I think it's a real pain." According to Kaye, most of the time, actors don't get to read the script. Rather, they are handed only a few pages of dialogue to read. "They don't tell you anything," he explains, exasperated. "As an actor, you could make one of 7,500 choices and if you make the one that they don't like, they don't ask you to do another one, they just say 'No, this is not what we want' and keep auditioning until they find an actor who picks the right choice out of a hat." Fortunately, having a contract role on PC means Kaye isn't forced to deal with the audition hassle on a regular basis. "I'm too old -- I can't do it," he says, chagrined. "So it's kind of nice to have a steady job."

That's A Fact

Kaye swears he's seen a ghost!
