Thorsten Kaye (Zach, All My Children)

Soap Opera Weekly

By Carolyn Hinsey, Published December 6, 2006

All ABC treated fans (and the press) to a three-day extravaganza at Disney-MGM Studios in Orlando, Fla., Nov. 10-12. Here [is one of] ABC's funniest men with [his] take on all the shenanigans.

WEEKLY: You get a huge reaction, from fans down here. Kaye: That's because I ride the motorcade with my fly open.

WEEKLY: What's been your favorite thing with [daughter] McKenna so far?

Kaye: She loved the princess breakfast. Those princesses are really going places. They're going to get their own castle one of these days.

WEEKLY: Have you gotten a lot of feedback on the Kendall/Zach cover you just did for WEEKLY? Kaye: Feedback for me is usually my boss saying, "Thanks for not embarrassing us so that we have to apologize to a million people." So I think it turned out well. WEEKLY: Do you know what the story of Zach's house is? 

Kaye: I know what it's supposed to be. I think it could be a real interesting story, not just for me but to explain the history of the character, which I think is very important. Zach helps everybody, and we don’t know why.

WEEKLY: I would like it if it turns out that Ethan wasn't really Zach's son, and he still has a son out there.

Kaye: One that looked a little bit more like him?

(ABC honcho Brian Frons comes over.)

Frons: May I join you?

WEEKLY: Of course. We were just talking about the mysterious house…

Kaye:…and a character's scars, and how that changes who the character is.

WEEKLY: The more history you can bring to a character, the more layers he has. Not to the point where you bore the head of the network, of course.

Kaye: Oh, I have no trouble boring the head of the network. I'm pretty good at that.
