TVG: Did you ever imagine you’d be on a soap in a breakout role?
CH: I would have looked at you as if you were crazy. I don’t fit the typical soap actress profile. I’ve got curves, God love them, but I’m not willowy. There’s a specific kind of beauty in soaps; it’s almost ethereal. Look at Becky Herbst [Liz]! That kind of beauty is just not possible, but yet it is. I’m very confident about my appearance, but I’m also a realist, so I never in my wildest dreams would have imagined I’d be on a soap. I’m happy that I bring a lot of humour to the show, and that’s not even the norm for a soap opera. I would have never thought these two days of work would’ve turned into 18 months when GH’s casting director Mark Teschner called me up for the gig.
