When it comes to interior design, B&B's Thorsten Kaye (Ridge) may not know colors, but he does know the importance of space. "Feng shui is probably the wrong word to use here, but some sets make it really hard to find your center," confesses the actor.

"For example, the Forrester CEO office has a center, which is the conference table. Otherwise, if it doesn't, it's difficult to maneuver and find your center. The police station on ONE LIFE TO LIVE was the worst set to be in because there was no center. If there's no center, it makes it difficult to work from somewhere. There's a reason why people forget their lines, and a lot of times it has to do with not being connected to your set and your environment for your blocking. 

"On some shows, when people get their blocking, they sit around and drink coffee. As an actor, you have to walk around. You have to actually walk when they give you your blocking because otherwise, your body doesn't remember it and if your body doesn't remember the blocking, then you don't remember the line that went with the blocking. It's very important to do that."
