Yesterday I had the pleasure of speaking with Eric Martsolf (Ethan) for a couple of upcoming items (to appear in the magazine). A consummate professional, Martsolf is always willing to chat about PASSIONS, despite being busy with auditions for other projects, not to mention his life as a father and husband. He's funny (something you didn't get to see too often on the show), candid and just an all-around nice guy.
That said, Martsolf gave me all the time I needed as we discussed his possible upcoming projects ("I've gotten some positive feedback and will keep you posted," he promised.) as well as things he wish he'd gotten to do as Ethan on PASSIONS ("Well, I wish he'd had more backbone," he joked). He also had much praise for the fans, many of whom keep in touch with him through his Web site (www.ericmartsolf.com). "Their support means the world to me," he said.
I'm disappointed that PASSIONS will be ending this summer, but I'm looking forward to what Martsolf and his former co-stars will be doing next.
