Galen Gering (Rafe, DAYS) “It would definitely be Michelle Stafford [Phyllis, Y&R] because she’s awesome. She’s my neighbor and she’d be pretty great.”
Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan, GH) “Marci Miller [Abigail, DAYS], who my wife [Cady McClain, Jennifer, DAYS] worked with. She’s wonderful.
Scott Clifton (Liam, B&B) “A Martinez [ex-Cruz, SANTA BARBARA et al]. He has been around. He has done a lot of daytime and he came onto our show [as Dr. Montgomery in 2011-12]. He just blew me away. I’m in awe of how subtle he is as an actor, and I just wanted to do more scenes with him. I don’t know him as a person, but he was so good. Ever since then, I’ve wanted to work with him more.”
Don Diamont (Bill, B&B) “Kim Zimmer [ex-Reva, GUIDING LIGHT] pops into mind. I’ve always admired her and her work and knowing her a bit, not super-well, but she is just really fun and sweet. She has a great sense of humor and she is so very talented. There are certainly others, but she is the first one who pops.”

Steve Burton (Jason, GH) “I’ve gotten to work with so many incredible actors, I think I’d have to go back to the ’90s, people like Justin Deas [ex-Buzz, GUIDING LIGHT, et al], David Canary [ex-Adam/Stuart, ALL MY CHILDREN], Charles Keating [ex-Carl, ANOTHER WORLD], these dudes who were just actors through and through, always nominated [for Daytime Emmys], always doing amazing stuff.”
Peter Bergman (Jack, Y&R) “I wish I could give you a long list of people in daytime I’ve wanted to work with, but if I had to name just one, I’d say James Patrick Stuart [Valentin] from GH. He’s an excellent actor and a lovely guy. And then there is Finola [Hughes, Anna, GH], Thorsten [Kaye], Arianne [Zucker, Nicole, DAYS], Wally [Kurth, Ned, GH/ Justin, DAYS], Roger [Howarth, Austin, GH], Nancy Lee [Grahn, Alexis, GH], Matthew [Ash- ford, Jack, DAYS], Mary Beth [Evans, Kayla, DAYS]. There! That’s just one full name, right?”
Thorsten Kaye (Ridge, B&B) “Eric Braeden [Victor, Y&R]. I see that guy in the hallway and we talk. He’s a very interesting man and he’s a really good actor. Someone like him, I would just take a back seat and watch.”

Ptosha Storey (Naya, Y&R) “I’d love, love, love to work with the soap opera legend himself, Eric Braeden [Victor]. Not only am I a fan of his work, I grew up watching him and to work with him would be a full-circle moment, a dream come true.”
