Days of Our Lives Alum Jason Brooks Talks Difference Between Daytime and Primetime Gigs
Former Days of Our Lives bad boy Jason Brooks (ex-Peter Blake) is back with a new Lifetime Movie Network flick, The Perfect Boyfriend, premiering tonight at 8 pm EST. In an interview with Celebrity Baby Scoop, the Switched at Birth actor dished the differences between daytime soaps and primetime roles. Check out an excerpt:
CBS: You played a villain on Days of Our Lives – is there a difference between acting in a soap opera and a prime time television series?
JB: The biggest difference is the time. To do an hour of a soap, it takes a day which is about 70-80 script pages. In primetime, you have about 8 days to do the equivalent amount of pages so you have more of an opportunity for quality. There’s also more money being put towards the production value of a primetime show which allows it to look better.
